Did I really paint all these!

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I will begin.

I appear to have painted quite a lot of figures and despite my earlier grumpiness they are actually pretty good. It's funny isn't it how we remember the few duffers and not the many good 'uns.

So the tally is
28mm infantry 447
28mm cavalry 80
28mm guns 9 plus 7 limbers
28mm vehicles 6
28mm animals 9
10mm infantry 66
10mm cavalry 1

or 667 figures

which looks like this


Colonial types

more randoms

And it still wasn't enough. When it stops raining I'll varnish them and then put them away until it is their time to fight. I even suspect that I would come 2nd in the worst photography competition to Miles. It's a good job I already have a nemesis..
I will need to pick my best 3 next, that's going to be a massive walk down memory lane, nice
And finally a photo of an old man  trying to workout how to take a selfie

ps I missed 16 VBCW Infantry off the photo, bound to find more

From AlexS: ХОРОШО! (Good!)

This is my second Event. I am eternally grateful Curt that it holds, and his entire team of minions. This was always professional, fun and exciting. I am particularly grateful to my supervisor, the great master of Miles for his work with me, and curator of last year, Greg, because he taught me how to take part in this opening event. My thanks to David for his subtle humor to me and, of course, Tamsin. It was she with her capacity for work, care and benevolence, it is the symbol of the opening event. 

Also thanks to all the rest of the 90 participants of the opening event for their excellent work and interesting posts. I mentally call you all by name, because as a place to write a little :(

But, indeed, the case. Here is my desktop.

 This - the ones that I made during the event period. The two armies on antiquity, on completion of a major Napoleonic Wars and a little trivia. I am very pleased that I was the first time in his life painted ship!

Well, I myself with my youngest daughter, who was born during last year's opening event.

 Thank you all, see you next year!
