Here is a list of all of the wargame units that I painted in 2018, all of which are Seven Years War figures. Click on the links to go to the blog post that covers each unit that I painted.

I also painted 4 Russian artillery pieces, each with 4 crew plus limber teams of 4 horses, 1 rider and 1 limber. Here

If my math is correct, the total number of figures painted in 2018 was 652 figures. There are probably more than that if I include some vignettes that I made and some samples that I painted for the Fife & Drum on-line webstore and catalog.

Now in some of these instances, I posted the date when I flagged and based both battalions of a Prussian or Austrian battalion. So for example, the IR2 von Kanitz Musketeer Regiment indicates 2 x 32 battalions = 64 figures. I did not paint all 64 figures at one time, but rather, over the course of several weeks. My painting pace is approximately one unit of 32 figures per week, although I do not paint every week. I wish!


  1. An impressive output this year and to a consistently high quality:)

  3. Impressive and inspiring. Happy New Year!

    Best Regards,


  4. Beautiful work, Jim. Always love seeing your stuff.

  5. Congratulations Jim, quite an effort for the year.

  6. Thank you everyone for the kind comments as they are much appreciated. I'm still baffled by the recent lack of comments on this blog compared to other blogs that I follow. For example, one blog might post that he took his dog out for a walk today and gets 30 comments. I take two hours creating a post that is picture heavy and I get one to three comments. It's a head scratcher to be sure.

  7. An amazing effort, Jim, and it has been a pleasure to follow this journey with you. Your effort is greatly appreciated. I will bite my tongue as to the difference between your followers and the dog-blogger to avoid disparaging the latter!! :-D Cheers, Rohan.

  8. Great work. Very inspiring.
