It's almost that time of year again! And by that I mean it's almost November. I started this last year in place of doing NaNoWriMo. Instead of writing a novel I paint a mini a day. I have tweaked the rules slightly from last year since I wasn't able to complete it the way I wanted to because life. So here are the revised rules and my calendar. I'm going to try to do this one mini each day but if that fails as long as I have 30 minis at the end of the month I'll consider it a success. Rules: Must paint at least 30 minis (1 for each day) 1 sculpt = 1 mini Prep beforehand is encouraged. No brush restrictions Calendar: I only do this for my sanity and to keep me on track and motivated. This year all but 2 of the minis are from Bones 3. There probably won't be much updating to this until November actually starts or is very near to it. I think that's it for now. Thanks for looking!
I decided to participate in order to try to make some headway on my vast collection of unpainted neglected minis. My sister was visiting so although I painted, I have not been on the computer until today. I got out a bunch of figures that I thought that I could finish. I started with some simple ones since I had company and so far am pretty much on schedule with 18 completed. I have torture chamber accessories, 12 goblins, and the goblin drummer and drum carrier from Bones 3. Still on deck: Thanks to my sickly dogs and my husbands use of electrolytes for his races, I have an unending supply of holders. What it really serves to do is make me go in and put paint on figures when I see so many ready. Behind those, I have a bunch of "shelf of shame" figures that are destined for the Thanksgiving Weekend Challenge. I am so hoping to get many figures off the table this month. And get better pictures going forward.
ultrasquid posted a topic in Works In ProgressGetting set up for this. My goal is to finish painting at least one figure per day. I have a good number that are already started, so I should be able to handle this in the beginning. I won't be able to name each and every model since so many are old and out of package for so long, but if anyone can offer help on that, it would be great. I won't be following such strict rules as others have. Just that by December 31 I should have posted photos of 31 newly painted figures.
SparrowMarie posted a topic in Works In ProgressSo. I've decided that this year instead of participating in National Novel Writing Month, which I have never successfully finished, I'm going to paint a mini a day. I've still got a ton of bones laying around from the Bones 2 kickstarter that I want to get done before Bones 3 gets to me. I also want to finish painting up what I have of Shadows of Brimstone before the rest of it gets here as well. If all else fails I plan to paint at least 30 unique minis by the end of the month. I've laid out a calendar and some rules for myself. Rules: 1.) Must be roughly human sized, 28-33 mm or larger (horizontally or vertically) 2.) 1 sculpt counts as 1 mini. 3.) Prep beforehand is totally permitted (washing, boiling, priming, gap filling, removing mold lines, etc) 4.) More than one model a day is great! But it doesn't count towards future days. 5.) 24 hours for one mini only 6.) Take pictures of time and date before and after finishing each mini. Must include mini in both pictures. EDIT: This will be a very picture heavy thread. EDIT 2: Here is where I will be putting my show off threads once I get around to making them.
