3rd Quarter 2018- progress report.

As we draw into the final months of the year I’ve not been that busy in the shed but this is what I’ve done:

I painted 51 20mm figures and 11 28mm figures. Built and painted 5 1/72nd kits and finished off 5 1/300 aircraft. I did however read 33 books.

Cheers,

Pete.

  1. Doesn’t sound like a bad haul to me Pete and 33 books is very good going. I read a fair bit but I’m a slow reader, sounding the words out each time doesn’t help! 😉

      Thanks- It’s helped settling in the new cat- I read on the sofa and she has started sitting on me whilst I read so I’m stuck there for a while as I don’t like disturbing her.

      Cheers,

      Pete.

  2. Sounds like progress to me! I’ve only done about 60 20mm figures and 10 vehicles all year – what I can’t work out is, if that’s all I’ve done, how come I never have any spare time?

    Time and effort very well spent in my humble opinion.:) Not sure how much I’ve painted over the year certainly less books than you though. I do enjoy reading but struggle to find the time.

  4. Hey sounds like your doing Great Pete much better then I. Hey take care and if you ever see that Twilight 2000 Grenadier pack please let me know I’ll pay Very well for it:) Thanks my friend.

      Thanks Dave. I find it helps to keep a list- keeps my motivation up I should really ofset it against what I’ve got coming in to see how it affects the net total. I’ll keep an eye out for the figure pack. The next show should have a bring and buy so will go through it for you.

      Cheers,

      Pete.

  5. Nice work – 33 books?? Wow.

  6. I really should keep track of how much I paint but 1 I’m too time poor to tally it up now and 2 I’m too lazy to bother at the time haha. Great output man and I envy you on the books. I nod off every time I try to read a book. Old age hehe. I’ve Pre-Ordered The Beast Arises from GW so hopefully that’ll keep me awake. Maybe a few Red Bulls too.

    Well, you have put me to shame. I have painted nothing all year and read only 29 books, but I did listen to another 18 audiobooks.

    • Sapper Joe says:

      Oops! After looking at something, I am actually a bit further along in my readings then what I said earlier. I am at 32 books finished and 26 audiobooks for this year.

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Not too bad. Never listened to an audio book, I do like to have music on though while I paint.

      Cheers,

      Pete.

      • Sapper Joe says:

        Audio books are not for everyone, just like reading. But they can be enjoyable, especially if you get a good voice actor to do different voices. In a few rare cases, an audio book are read by more than one person, especially the L. Ron Hubbard’s pulp novellas (I like his pre-Scientology work). If you listen to podcasts, that is basically the same thing for most audio books. Normally, I listen to them on a long drive or flying. There are a lot of free ones on LibriVox from public domain books. Warning about them as they are read by volunteers, so some of them are good and others are really bad.

        I’ll give it a go- may not be for me- I don’t like talking on the radio and not got the hang of podcasts. I don’t know what to do withy them, they are too distracting to be on in the background and it feels odd just sitting there being talked at. Although that’s just me lol

        Cheers,

        Pete.
