UPDATED! Painting Countdown to New Year

500 painted miniatures here we come!

...whoops it's almost 700 in the end!

It's again that time of the year, when it's time to finish up as many yet unfinished models started this year. Last year's countdown here. Last year I eventually reached 623 completed miniatures, this year I'm aiming to get at least 500 done. As this count down begins I'm standing at:

  • 384 miniatures painted and started from scratch
  • 51 miniatures completed, that were started before 2019
You can also follow my painting on Instgram by name "wanhaherrat"

First batch in the countdown were these 4 Footsore Warring Clans Ashigarus with Yari:

The Command base also received decals, but has been painted earlier this year. Count 439 minis

Final Inventory & final touches

As the year drew to an end it was time to make an inventory of minis painted during 2019, but not yet considered as ready, and hence not in the count. Many of them just had something very small undone, like adding static grass etc. to bases or so. These were actually quite a few:

So I went on to finalize as many of them as I could, and eventually ended up with the final and amazing number:

  • 600 Miniatures painted from scratch during 2019 (Citadel Contrasts really helped!)
  • 79 miniatures started earlier, but finished during 2019
In addition to this, I believe there is about a hundred minis I've partially painted during 2019, but they are not finished. Last year's score was 623. Read more about 2018 here.

* Graf says 2018, but it's 2019.
