Or should that be marking time?
In another, probably vain, attempt to encourage more brush on figure action and reduce my internet procrastination, I've introduced a small counter on the right hand side of the page. This simply records how many miniatures I've managed to daub this year and how many I've bought. The hope is to outstrip purchases with completed figures and thus transmutate that mountain of fresh lead in the garage to something useful (in as useful as painted toy soldiers can be).
January saw a whole six figures completed - they'll appear on the blog soon! A quick calculation tells me at this rate I'll complete a whole seventy two figures this year, which means I can buy seventy one figures this year...
So that resolution will last until Falkirk then.
