2016 Miniatures Monday Retrospective (and some questions)
As 2016 draws to a close, I thought that I would do a short Miniatures Monday retrospective. This year, I finished 36 miniatures, which while being far below my intended output of 52, isn't anything to sneeze about. Of course I started far more in 2016, many of which hopefully will be completed in the coming year. Overall I was pretty happy with most of the painting that I did this year, but there are a few more that I wish I could have finished. This brings us to what I've started referring to as the "Eternally Incomplete Miniature". The Santa Dwarf pictured above has been partially painted for nearly four years. Every holiday season, I intend to finish him and post him during the holidays, but I can't seem to ever actually finish him. I'm not sure why, as he isn't that complex, but somehow he never quite gets finished. Perhaps 2017 will be the year. So how about the rest of you? How did your 2016 miniatures painting efforts go? Did you complete a miniature in 2016 that you were particularly proud of? Do you have any miniatures that you just can't quite seem to ever finish?
