I plan to start July with fireworks and a 3-day weekend painting binge. ::D: My model list is short: 3 in a diorama and 1 solo for Gen Con. If time permits, I might go for one more. Anything else done this month is just icing on the cake.

Got some good, productive time at the workbench over the weekend. Especially yesterday - off work, hiding from the heat, painting on & off throughout the day. Had one of those 'lightbulb moments' in technique & use of color. Not quite an epiphany, nothing that strong. Just thought, "Oh, I get it, now!" I like the results, so far, and hope it's enough to reach that elusive 'next level'.

I have no real goals for the month, but I have gotten a couple good blocks of painting time in the last few days, and have made some substantial progress on my Ogre Kingdoms army. Not as much as I might have liked, perhaps, but enough that I should be able to actually get them finished before the end of the year.
The PCs are rootin', tootin' kittens living in this very town who, with flamethrowers, fight the enemies of the State for electrum pieces...or so it would seem.

Army-sized projects for 2011 - Warmahordes - Minions, Skorne, Retribution, Circle, Cryx, possibly Cygnar. WFB - Ogres, Skaven, Dwarves, Orcs and Vampire Counts. 40k - Tau, Guard, Marines, Orks. FoW - German, Soviets, Brits. DBA - 6 armies. 25mm Western figs. Some giant stompy robots for CAV and HG. A bunch of 25mm Romans just because. Maybe a couple of Warmaster armies.

The listing above is only a WIP. No big deal, since almost everything on it is a WIP as well.

It seems awfully quiet in here, at least to me. Same thread last year was up to several pages by this point in the month. Just curious.

Way to go, shakhak! Keep up the good work. Jen and Froggy, too!

My own progress is slow, but focused. Still plugging away at comp entries and getting other things ready for Gen Con.

Right now most of my stuff is GW related. In fact, since we don't play fantasy RPGs anymore, the amount of Reaper I buy has dropped considerably (occasional Chronoscope here an there). It ends up looking like every month is a GW painting project, and this is the Reaper boards so I refrain...

Nah, don't worry about GW or other maker, post away. This thread is about motivation, checking things off our lists. Warlordgarou working on Ogre Kingdoms, for example. Also, it doesn't matter if you're painting for fun, comp, tabletop, RPG, etc. Example: I didn't name the manufacturer(s) for my current list, and they're all for a contest. I just sort of blog about it as I go without the hassle of WIPs and following up.

OK then, on the workbench:

12 GW Chaos Space Marine World Eater Berzerkers
1 Forgeworld CSM World Eater Dreadnaught
7 GW Fantasy Dwarf Hammerers
1 GW Fantasy Dwarf Lord

Hope to have these done by July 31. Ultimately I want to finish my dwarfs off by September (2000pts) for gaming.

Technically, I am working on a lot of things, but yeah, Ogres are part of it.

Since my last post, I have also been making (cheap) shelves for my painting area, using pegboard, 1 by 10, and 10" hooks. They aren't level (since the pegs have a slant to them), but the slight slope helps keep me from accidentally knocking things off the front. I have also been assembling and priming some Skorne models - 20 praetorian swords, plus working on a couple warlocks. And some trollbloods. And some warmachine mercs. And painting a double set of the hirst arts starship basic interior.

I am hoping to do some painting tonight, instead of inhaling superglue fumes.
The PCs are rootin', tootin' kittens living in this very town who, with flamethrowers, fight the enemies of the State for electrum pieces...or so it would seem.

I lied when I said those miniatures were finished. I completely forgot that I needed to flock the bases. So I ran out to the FLGS, picked up some rocks, dirt, and purple flowers and based the 13 painted models. Now they are finished. Only 10 to go.

Added another model to the list. The Ghoul Queen has always been a favorite of mine, I'm excited to get to use her as the Warlord of the army.


03126: Ghoul Queen (Queen) - - Skin, Cloth, Weapon
14594: Avrix Dirthe, Dark Elf Champion - - Skin, Cloth, Weapon
14575: Tierdeleira, Priestess - - Skin, Cloth, Armor Weapon
14586: Female Dark Elf Warrior(Shadowstep) x 7 - Skin, Cloth, Weapon
14590: Liela Mordollwen, Dark Elf Sorceress - Skin, Cloth, hair, Weapons

03126: Ghoul Queen (Rose Window)

00000: Unknown DHL model proxy
14571: Zalash Dark Elf Assassin
14584: Dark Elf Crossbowman(Shiver Spike)x 5
14570: Dark Elf Warrior (Nightshade) x 4
60028: Pathfinder Red Dragon - Painted as Shadow Dragon
02664: Phase Cat - Finished


Doing the armor in Red with the wrappings in white has become a nightmare on the Shadow Step Warriors. Way too much time is being spent repainting as I keep messing up. I'm going to try to swallow the pride and ignore it on them. Hopefully I'll finish them tonight and then I can focus on the remaining Leaders and Elites.
