2015 - Where did it go ?

Water Tower
Well, 2015 came and went in a flash and although I didn't manage to put any  paint on any figures this last year I still feel that I did manage to a few things done.

In January, I finished off this Water Tower,

 and "Bonerippers"

 and a random Downtown building

 I managed to play games in February and March, which was a welcome break  from fiddling about with bits of scrap, foamboard and paper printouts.

Downtown building






















Office building
For nearly all of April and May I was ill and was unable to blog, but eventually was recovered enough to continue blogging in June with another downtown office building built from foamboard (no interior).
I did also manage to fit in another game in June too, which was a bonus.









July and August were mostly taken up  with minor scenic bits (mostly roof-top furniture) and a large composite model made from foamboard,  that had originally been intended for use as a Hospital.

Largest model to date
Container Office
 September saw me complete one of the smaller models I built during 2015, a container office 
 I'd also managed to make lots of containers at about the same time too.
I managed to fit another game in during October and built up enough enthusiasm to continue with a build I had started in 2012 - The Stree. This latter build has had to take a back seat for the moment as I await printouts for the interior walls and floors 0 and a back staircase still needs to be built.



"The Street"

And other than a few minor bits and pieces, that was it for me in 2015, which on reflection turned out much better than I thought it would. For 2016, I hope that a can maintain my waning enthusiasm to at least that of 2015.

That's ot then for this week (and for this year too), I hope you all have had an enjoyable seasonal break and are all looking forward to a prosperous and industrious New Year.

  1. I do not like looking back it makes me maudlin.

    But you have some cracking buildings now and that has got to make one smile.

    1. Unfortunately Clint, it makes me maudlin too, but at least I did get something done this last year. I am pleased with "Downtown Perdition" though

  2. A very productive year imho Joe, with plenty of impressive scenery created as a result. Your tabletop is always a pleasure to look at on account of all the little touches you add to your builds, so I'm certainly looking forward to seeing what you come up with in 2016 :-)

    1. Thanks Blaxx, I do have plans for three new builds this year (though very tenous atm); one is a 'first', in that I haven't seen my idea being used anywhere - we'll see. Another build I have been planning for some time, but still needs some thought.

    1. Thanks Jay, in return I can say that as well as being entertained, I was both amazed, baffled and bewildered (sometimes all at once) by your own post this last year

  11. It seems to have been a productive year! Think of it as a springboard for next year, you can see what you did and go from there.

    That reminds me to get busy building, painting and playing!

    Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks Ptr and thanks for the sound advice; I made a conscience decision to make things solely for myself, which alleviated any the pressure I felt.
      Happy New year to you and yours for 2016
