So here's the rundown beginning with 28mm vehicles:
1: The Half Jimmy
2: The Eldar Skimmer
2020 was in many ways the year of the farm animal on Moab 2. I painted up lots of 'em. (Probably more than anything else, save possibly scatter terrain. More on that later.)
7 and 8: "Babe" Blue Oxen
9-11: Terror Birds
13-20: Pigs in Space
21-23: Also goats in Space
I did also get some people painted. Not tons, but enough.
1-4: The Duchess of Pain Court and her Boudoir Noire.
5: The Pieman
6: The Ringmaster
7-9: The Sushi seller, the pilot, and the honeymooners.
10: A Goat with a Gun
(I'll leave you the little preview of 2021 as a teaser for what comes next.)
To this we can add a fair bit of scatter terrain, including the pizza kitchen seen with the pieman above, the carnival barkers platform, and . . .
Ore bins, hazmat casks, 50 gallon drums, wheels, road cases, beer kegs (all local brews) and even a few wine casks. (I should really post about that. Meant to. Got distracted by plague.) All manner of loads and a couple of shipping pallets
(not pictured) to hold them.
(not pictured) to hold them.
Last but not least I painted a whole new collection of spaceships, many of which have not as yet appeared elsewhere on the blog. And while these have o-fee-shul GW names I'm ignoring that in favor of fun:
1-8: Space Swords (which are not cancelled)
9: Space Galleon With Fun Gun
10-11: Space Galleons with Pokers
12-13: Poncy Elven Sailboats in Space
Like nearly all great empires Games Workshop got their navy started with ships designed by and purchased from foreign builders. And since these would be those I'm going to utterly ignore what GW thinks these things are and make it up myself. After all, that's what the Caster of Nottingham did before me!
14-20: Space Destroyers and Space Cruisers with Balls!
(Ignore the home-build. Though maybe if I add balls . . . )
21: Space Battleship with Balls
22: Big Honking Freighter with More and Bigger Balls
It really was not a banner year. Adequate, but only because the first six months punched above their weight output-wise. But then . . . 2020. Oh boy! Will that ever mean the same thing again? Hindsight is surviving 2020 and looking back and saying "Nya nya! I'm out, you sneaky plague rat!" 2020.
But the tally:
23 heads of space livestock
10 people (It started so well!)
22 spaceships. (Might actually have been 23. I think there was a little atmospheric shuttle lost in there.)
A lot of scatter terrain. (Not going to count. It was all pretty quick. Though putting local brew labels ont things did take a little work. And I created my own space label logo. Maybe that'll come up when I do the scatter terrain catchup post.)
It's not terrible. But not what I'd been hoping for. As to 2021? I make no promises. Let's survive what I hope is the tail end of the plague, find our mojo, and move forward.
Congratulations living through all of this. May none of us ever again live in such interesting times. ;-)
