January Roll Call
Posted 02 January 2011 - 12:55 AM
Call of Cthulhu game figures from Chronoscope line roughly five pulp figures.
One of my resolutions was to get some "down time" to relax. This will work.

I've also got several models for Warlord I'd like to get through for me, including Acacia and some archers, a handful of skellies, and a couple reven. Kristianna is waiting patiently in the wings, but I'm not going to speed paint her.
If by some miracle I get through all that, I also have a 10 man CSM squad ready for painting as Alpha Legion.
For Feb., my plan is a dipping project. I want to try and prep, prime, and paint an "army" and use minwax for a dip. I'm thinking of using either my Skull Pass gobbos or a ROTK box of Gondorians and Orcs for the minis.

Some of these have survived half-painted for three years. We'll see what happens.

2 lesser elementals
2 standard bearers
Also need to assemble and airbrush another car model body for a friend who is into slot car racing. My daughter has also reminded me to complete a dragon for her that was started early 2010 as airbrush practice.

Yeah, I'm a funny guy...
More realistically I'm going to try to finish up a couple of armies and buy a Forgeworld Revenant titan for some Apocalypse goodness...

[. .] 2. Convert a Fantasy figure of some sort.
[. .] 3. Send item #2 away to be painted.
[. .] 4. Paint something for my much neglected Reven Army.
Hmmm, four is enough -- start small. Add more later, perhaps. Is it customary to edit this post once items get completed or just make a new post?

I'm not so sure I'd want to get hit by a missile with a "dog brain" AI.

A friend of mine found his 2nd-edition (of WH40k!) Eldar sitting around his parents' basement along with some old Battletech figs, and sent 'em off to me under the dubious assumption that I'd give 'em a good home. This makes me want to dig out my Eldar, paint up an army, and auction it off for Child's Play in November. No way I'm likely to finish by then at the pace I've been painting, but it's worth a try.

Exchange figs - unit exchange, conversion exchange, etc.
Gatormen posse - I'm doing the color test for the first unit. Not entirely displeased, just not sure if it is what I want to do with them. If so, I want to finish both units of 3 figs each.
Random terrain projects - making the templates for some Warmahordes stuff.
Drawing a blank, really. I have lots of stuff that I am currently working on, but I am trying to, in general, paint simply for the joy of painting. I want to view it as something I get to do, instead of something that I have to do.
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.

D&D Chainmail Grey Elf Pyromancer: working along nicely, although I realized as I'm going here that the left eye is miscast (boo!)
D&D Chainmail Grey Elf Duelist: Working very well, hoping to finish this first from the "grouping"
D&D Chainmail Grey Elf Snakestrike Duelist: I'm less excited about this mini than I was when I started it. It'll be done about the same time as the wizard.
Damiel, Iconic Pathfinder Alchemist: 3/4 done
Halbarand, Cleric with sword: 1/2 done
Deladrin, Assassin: 85% done. Flesh work on her face is a BEAR!
D&D Chainmail Otyugh: Scenic base, priming, and beginning color work done (24%?)
Elori Ebonscythe conversion (High Exemplar Kreoss alt sculpt arm instead of the scythe arm): Primed, flesh tones done.
D&D Chainmail Slaughterpit Gnoll Zombie: Put together and gaps filled (no progress this week)
I'm really excited to be getting so far. I spent about 3 hours painting tonight, which was a good feeling. Maybe I'll get this lucky tomorrow and actually finish something!
