I missed my birthday!

So this old blog of mine rolls into it's third year and I think I can safely say that the year just gone was indeed the terrible twos. What a shockingly small body of work I have to show for the last 12 months. It's been so bad that things in the 'need to finish' pile from last years birthday post are still in it now although progress is being made and I've revisited all of my half done stuff and added at least something to them to bring them nearer to the finish.

Currently on the table are an ANZACs battalion command group and some French Bombers, Officers and NCOs for the Gallipoli range along with the balance of the Indian troops section pack. The sculpting schedule is full of interesting stuff for the next two months with a whole new set of subjects in the offing.

I'll put up some pictures of the new stuff as they are completed but I won't be showing off everything as I'll leave some of the new sculpts to be shown off in the GB newsletter for which you can sign up here (side panel on the right!).

So on to the boring stats, starting with sculpting output.

Full sculpts: 90
Conversions: 81
Heads, bits and accessories: 103

Absolutely awful considering I was aiming at something like 250 as a baseline. Just shows how badly my funk set in this past year. New years resolution, work more.
