While 2015 was a very bad year for posting on this blog, it was actually not the worst year for painting. For the most part, I worked on my two 19th-century Imaginations armies, but a burst of productivity in late November saw me finish up a number of Reaper Bones plastic fantasy figures.
This paladin has actually been sitting around mostly complete since 2013, but I finally got her based:
This alchemist had been sitting half-painted for a similar period of time. The various bottles were probably the most fun part of this one:
I tried for a sort of seedy, unshaven look for this two-weaponed fellow, though it might not come through so well in the picture:

As for my Imaginations troops, here are some Occiterran infantry in progress. I’ve been using the Emhar French Infantry for these guys:
A couple of shots of Elabrüner Uhlans on my painting table (originally Lucky Toys Austrians). These are not the most inspiring figures when seen on the sprue, but I was fairly pleased with how they painted up.

These Occiterran artillerymen were completed sometime in late 2014 or early 2015. They started off as ACW Union troops.
And here’s a few shots of all the units I have completed so far:
