2009 - that's a wrap!

Well, that was fun! As I look back on 2009 I see a lot of paint hitting minis and folks having fun doing it. There's been some sharing of info, lots of encouragement and lots of pics. Personally, I enjoyed almost painting more minis this year than I bought (17 vs 20) and I painted my second ever "commission".

I think for 2010 my resolution will be to try and double my output from this year (34!), though I may still keep the 52 minis target in the back of my head. I will also try to paint more minis than I buy (I -reaaaaaaally- have more than 52 minis in my unpainted lead pile already). Finally, I think I'm going to try and paint a few "units" and see if I can keep my attention on something long enough to do more than one of a particular paint.

Which brings me to the totals for 2009, we had a bunch of folks hit the 52 mark, congrats to all of them. Everyone else ... stop slacking off.

Kidding! :)

Have a great new year, have fun doing what you love and love what you're doing!

Totals for 2009:
joegkushner: lots more than 52 ...
mike mearls: 52
gospog: 52
crowtales: 52
joe: 17
Dom C: 3
Kuni: 2
microserf: 1

P.S. - I will no longer be doing "totals". The non-contest contest can be taken up by someone new if they desire, I won't mind at all. ;-)


  1. Thanks for keeping the running tab! It's been a great year, and I hope that this blog has been a useful bit of motivation.

  2. Yeah Joe, you keeping count was huge. And as always, your painting fills me with equal parts shame an inspiration. ;)

    Here's to 2010, everyone!

  3. I definitely appreciated you keeping tabs on the numbers. Thanks for doing that.

  4. Thanks, Gospog, I hope to paint much more this year.

    Btw, I painted more than 11 for 2009. >;-)
