Thats my output for  2012.  Totals are ~104 miniatures (counting 10mm bases as one miniature) and ~55 terrain elements (which vary in size from a 28mm scale book to 6×4′ terrain mats).  It a little less than my output for 2011, but its still pretty good I think.  I reckon that I could push productivity up a bit more if I really tried, but then it might become more of a chore than a pleasurable pastime.  I suspect that future years will have about the same output, which really means that I should buy far, far fewer miniatures than I do currently.

My recurring late Summer-Autumn slump happened again this year.  Keeping this blog has made it apparent to me that the slump seems to be a recurring seasonal thing, which is interesting.  It also means that when it happens I now get a little less frustrated, as I expect it somewhat and have a rough idea of its frequency and duration.  Monitoring output was one of the goals in my blog mission statement when I started it a few years ago so this sort of information is interesting and potentially helpful I think.

My rough plans for miniature related things for 2013 will go up here soon.  Happy new year.

  1. That’s impressive. Some of the professional painters crank out a lot of models, but they don’t hold down a day job or even game much. I like reading blogs by people who paint their own figs for their own evil purposes. Good work!

    • Hi muskie, thanks for the kind words.

      I am far from being a pro painter and I do sometimes struggle to balance real life things with hobby stuff. I do definitely get a kick out of getting the productivity:quality ratio right though. Its an 80:20 thing for me. Getting the project (rather than individual elements) close to finished is paramount.

      Thanks for the feedback and have a happy new year 🙂

  2. That’s a really, really impressive tally for one year. Great job and looking forward to seeing more! Have a great new year too, and thanks for 2012!

    • Thanks Mikko. I think that the total is a little smaller than last years (although I cant remember where I recorded last years output right now so I cant check) but its still pretty healthy: one hobby thing produced every two and a bit days approximately is pretty decent turnover.

      Fingers crossed that 2013 will be just as productive 🙂

  3. Wow, very impressive! I’m struggling to get my annual total tallied up, but hopefully will have the opportunity today. Unfortunately I didn’t finish all the Doom Forgers for the new year… crap. Here’s to a healthy and productive 2013. My keyword for the new year is “backlog”, as in “finish stuff in the backlog”. I’ll be painting a few more wolves, finish up the Citadel plastic Fighting Fantasy ogre/giant, finish the five sea elves I started for the LPL.

    Speaking of LPL… I’ll stay clear of that this year. Don’t have the time or energy to do it, need to focus on other things.

    • Thanks Mattias. Your LPL participation must have contributed at least about fifty figures to your total. Probably more I would think. Are you planning a 2012 in review post?

      The LPL is a great thing to take part in and it appeals to me a bit every year, but I wont ever enter I suspect. I have enough deadlines imposed from within and without already. I dont need the extra pressure on what is supposed to be a relaxing pastime.

      Good luck tackling the backlog Mattias. I need to stop typing and get stuck into some Dreadball stuff.

      • I didn’t submit new teams to all the rounds in the LPL, so unfortunately I didn’t do 50+ models for that. The plastic dwarfs really helped! So did the 13 added by commission.

        I posted up my 2012 recap today, so have at it! =) Please don’t poke me too hard regarding the joints and score marks being bright white on my cardboard houses. 😉
