2014 was an eventful year for me both personally (I got my second daughter in Mars 31st) and hobby wise because this was the year I painted more non-GW models than I have done totally in my hobby career before. This has much to do with the release of Warzone: Resurrection which I focused on this year.

No Painting Challenge?
I didn't do an painting challenge last year, I don't think I would top 2013 anyway. But this is mainly due that I now paint models from different systems that so the Points system I used from WHFB and 40K didn't really work.
I will however do something else, that I have seen many other blogs do. Keep a tab on how many models you paint. And how many you bought over the year.
So how did I do this year then?
1 Angelica Drachen
1 Max Steiner
5 Venusian Rangers
5 Etoles Mortant
= 28 models
WZ:R Dark Legion
1 Alakhai the Cunning
10 Undead Legionnaires
2 Necromutant Leaders
= 14 models
1 Greyhound LAFV
3 Golden Lions
1 Hurricane Walker
5 Blood Berets
2 Imp. Commanders
1 Brigadier P.D. Rist
= 23 models
WHFB: Warriors of Chaos
1 Throgg the Trollking
4 Chaos Trolls
1 Dragon Ogre
1 Chaos Ogre
18 Nurgle Warriors (rep)
= 25 models
20 Clansmen (HW/Sh)
1 Grudge Thrower (and three crew)
1 Cannon (and three crew)
= 30 models
= 21 models
X-Wing: Miniatures Game
1 Tie Fighter
= 2 models
Total number of painted model 2014 is: 143
This is if I just count every piece as a single model, regardless if it's a big monster, character or just an normal infantry model. So this can vary very much depending on what models I paint up. I might do another system where a character is worth 3 models, a monster 5 etc. as they take more time to paint up. But for now this is what Iv'e achieved. Less than expected I must say but there are many models in there where I took a lot of time to paint, like Throgg, the Gyrocopter etc. So I'm happy with the result non the less and I think I can beat this quite easily this coming year.
I must try to do one project at a time and get that finished and then move on to the next one, easier said than done for me though.
My main focus in 2015 will still be Warzone: Resurrection. But as I get more and more models finished I hope I can get in more projects for different game systems. I have a lot of almost finished units for both my Empire and WoC armies that I want to get completed. I also want to paint up some Deadzone this year,
