For reasons not worth going into I lost a little time on this project, but hopefully am back up to the speed of four figures (one sprue) per week. Since of the 28 in the pack I’m doing 14 of them as javelin throwers (or as they will be played in WHFB, Empire spearmen) the most recent sprue is all them.
It’s also the end of January, and my monthly paint total is an impressive 29 figures. At least for me that’s impressive–I’m well aware that there are many who paint much faster. As a point of reference, that is half of what I painted for the entire year last year. I’m really in this odd painting grove where there is something almost zen-like about the progess.
I’m also not really sweating questions like “what’ll you do for Empire Greatswords?” First, it’ll be months before I get through all the light infantry. Second, I may just build this army to build an army and not sweat the gamesmanship of it. We’ll see.
