The Year End, Decade End, post for 2019

Hi All,

I've been laying low lately as things have been a little bit much for me the last month or so. I'm fine, just trying to work through the usual sources of frustration.

Let's talk hobby stuff!

If you really need to go back and read it, here is last years recap. I'll take my plans from the end of 2018 and see how I did.

  • Finish my Undead Army for OWAC2
           Accomplished. 1031 points of Undead painted. Post is here.
  • Paint my Renegade Warband that I've rolled up
          Accomplished. Somehow I got these guys, and others, painted. Post is here.
  • Paint a Slann Kill Team
          Didn't get around to this one. I misplaced the Diehard Eru-kin.
  • Build more Terrain (Especially finish that dang Coach House)
          Not successful at this one either. Not sure why I didn't make any terrain.
  • Paint up IG for a local (Phoenix) Rogue Trader Campaign
          Partially successful. I got some more stuff painted up and then got tabled. Post here.
  • Get back to cataloging stuff for the 100% painted challenge
          Fell off of doing this.
  • Go to BOYL2019
          Mission Accomlished!
  • Go to Monolithcon 2019
          Also mission accomplished!
  • Maybe some other Con
          Went to Rincon in October. Played WFRP and Ravenous.
  • Finish my expanded campaign map and play out more games in that world
          Still working on this. I keep getting bogged down in the minutiae.

Hmm, only 50% of my goals met. Although I think the ones I did accomplish were pretty big ones.

9 photos of stuff I painted this year

For painting totals I painted 103 models. How does this compare to other years? 2018 (100), 2017 (99), 2016 (50), 2015 (152), 2014 (105), 2013 (9), 2012 (4), 2011 (0). So for the decade that's 622 figures since I got back into the hobby or roughly 69 per year over the last nine years. Not a lot really. But I did notice that I seem to be averaging about 100 per year since 2014.

So, what's in store for 2020? A little hard to say for sure. This year was tough as I tried to move my hobby space and try to do it someplace where I could interact with the family better while painting. It didn't totally work and I managed to misplace a lot of stuff. So let's see what is on the table for 2020.

  • Clear out a dedicated hobby space
  • build more terrain (really do it this time)
  • play more games at home/ in town
  • Adopt more of a last in/first out painting regime. If I've had it for years and haven't painted it, don't kill mojo.
  • Paint Blood Bowl/ Blitz Bowl figures.
  • Advanced Heroquest
  • Gaslands
  • Zombie Gaming figures
So that's me for 2019 and into 2020.

Happy hobbying to you in the new year.


  1. A productive and beautiful period! Happy new year Sean!

    1. Thanks Phil, happy new year to you as well.

  2. Best of luck with 2020, hope you catch a break or two along the way.

    1. Thank you Michael, all the best in 2020 to you as well. Things aren't really all that bad in the grand scheme of things, I'm just not coping as well as I probably should.

  3. Looks like you've got a good year laid out for you Sean! You can DO IT!!

    1. Thanks Blue, I'll try like I always do. I just need to spend more time on other things instead of ignoring them.
