June 2016

Half way through the year. Things will pick up when my pace at work slows at the end of July. Sad to be missing Historicon, especially the Piquet crew with Peter's fantasic games.
I am back in the swing with some painting, but at a leasurely pace. I am continuing the fantasy project right now but the urge to work on more than one project at a time is returning.

I will varnish and base the figures below at the end of summer when I gather bigger batch.

New batch of leaders

"Wildling" Spear and Bow men

I did take a few minutes to review my plans to start the year:
Mid-year Review
1- Finish the Pirates. Seriously this time.---DONE

2- Continue to tinker on my own Fantasy Rules.---In progress, working on my Pulse of Fantasy Battle mash up.

3- Conventions: None planned this year...very sad to not be attending Historicon due to work requirements.---DONE :(

4- Budget: $1200 target for the year. Besides the usual books, magazines, and supplies, my only planned figure purchases may be the 6mm sci fi project.--- Doing Great! Well under budget. May splurge on some figures for the Katzenstein project or start 6mm Sci Fi.

5- Next major project: One of four options...A and B are in the lead.---On Target
a. Next phase of the fantasy project (start the Demonworld figures)---plenty of figures on hand.---In Progress
b. 6mm Sci-fi---Currently has my attention, but I would have to buy figures. Research in progress.
c. Add the next 12 or so units to the Kingdom of Katzenstein.
d. Opposing forces for Kingdom of Katzenstein.---Searching for discounted figures to start this up.

31 x 15mm fantasy figures: 31 points

TOTAL: 31 points

On the table:  more 15mm fantasy figures

0- consistent

$2.50 this month: TMP payment to post an ad
Total for the year: $103
Budget: $497 under budget
Plan: <$100 per month
Still need to check on my basing, paint, and brush some shield transfers.
