It's time to review the progress on the second four months of my painting objectives.
My initial priorities in January were:
Sudan British and Beja
Great Northern War Swedes
Dark Ages Early Saxons
Ancient Greeks and Spartans
I also added Darkest Africa in May.
Secondary targets were:
Punic War Spanish
Back of Beyond
Lord of the Rings
WW1 East Africa
Napoleonic Quatre Bras
3rd Century Romans and Palmyrans
Wars of the Roses mounted men at arms
What I have done from May to August is as follows:
Sudan British: 1
Sudan Beja: 1
Great Northern War: 11
Dark Ages: 0
Greeks and Spartans: 10
Darkest Africa: 12
Of my lesser priority category I did the following:
Back of Beyond: 2
So going forward for the next four months I think that my priorities will be as follows:
I must get those cursed Highlanders done (at least I have started them) plus some more Beja. I am well on the way to finishing the second rub of 60 figures. I also have an Egyptian and a British field gun to do.
Great Northern War
Musketeer Miniatures are promising Russian pikemen and command over the next few weeks. I am progressing well on the Sewedish infantry so will do some more.
With the Zulu War to do I think I will back of the Ngoni and Ruga Ruga for a bit, although I have five more of the latter under way.
The Great War
I am really enjoying painting my Prussian Guards so will do some more of these definitely.
I love the new Empress figures and will get going on these.
Likewise the new Alban riflemen are tremedous and French Voltigeurs are on the way.
Lord of the Rings
I have started some plastic knights of Minas Tirith and these are pretty quick to paint so will try and finish these by Christmas. I always play a Battle Companies game with my little boy at Christmas so maybe I can complete an Orc force for that as well.
