First miniature of the year painted:
It's "Slug Eat Your Face", sculpted by Tom Meier to a concept by his son Theo Meier (the description of the design process, which can be read here, is very amusing). This was a Christmas Present - one of a number of very well selected Christmas gifts from Ral Partha Legacy and Bad Squiddo Games. It's nice to have a family who know the weird things you like.
Last year was a hard year but in spite of that - or maybe because of it - it was my best year for painting ever. I managed to get 110 miniatures painted this year! Some of them even to a decent standard! Far and away a record for me. However... I managed to acquire 195 miniatures. So, taking into account the one I destroyed for a fimir conversion, that still leaves me 84 miniatures in the red.
Sometimes admitting you have a problem is the first step to fixing it... So, I have one core Oldhammer new year's resolution for 2022:
To paint more miniatures than I acquire.
That's it. That's my one resolution. Oh aye, and to finally finish and play the Dolgan Raiders (BOYL22 will finally be the year!)... And to get on with the High Elves that have been waiting nearly 25 years now... and I have a few other ideas up my sleeve too... Now if you'll excuse me, I'm just off to have a look on ebay.
