Working on Chaos Space marines GW and Chronoscope about ten for the month
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 AM going to finish these Space Hulk minis for my friend. I've got about 5-6 of the terminators done and one genestealer. I'm getting the hang on the color schemes and streamlining the process, but the models are different enough that I have to approach each SM in a new way.

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.
If there's a fine line between a hobby and a mental illness, then I'm riding a tire swing above it!

I currently have this bit of optimism that says I'm going to finish everything with paint already on it before starting anything else.

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

Carried over & hoping to complete this month for Warlord Dwarves, by means of standard painting & brush-on Army Painter 'dip':

8 warriors
6 shieldmaidens
2 lesser elementals
2 musicians
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.

I have a year goal to paint 200 minis. I would also like to finish all the minis I said I would paint for others, of which there are 7. I would also like to pick a couple of projects to work on for the Reapercon painting contest and finish them to a standard I am happy with.

My goal is to not buy anything new until I finish what I currently have...


<wipes tear from eye>

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...

Due to a car breaking down (and being limited to one vehicle for the past week and a half... rah), I didn't finish all the minis up I wanted to. SO, here's my list:

Ironwind Metals Female Mage casting (painted as female drow, tabletop standard): Done.
D&D Chainmail Grey Elf Pyromancer: 3/4 done
D&D Chainmail Grey Elf Duelist: 3/4 done
D&D Chainmail Grey Elf Snakestrike Duelist: 3/4 done
Damiel, Iconic Pathfinder Alchemist: 2/3 done
Halbarand, Cleric with sword: 1/2 done
Deladrin, Assassin: 8/10 done

D&D Chainmail Otyugh: (my first) Scenic base done, gap filling done.
Elori Ebonscythe conversion (High Exemplar Kreoss alt sculpt arm instead of the scythe arm): Primed.
D&D Chainmail Slaughterpit Gnoll Zombie: Put together and gaps filled.

I might even get the chainmail grey elf minis done this week... we'll see.

First time entering anything into one of these roll-call threads. Always figured it would be like teeing up a fail. But, New Year -- try new things.

[.x.] 1. Paint nine patches of swampland (a terrain project). -9 Jan.
[. .] 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?

My to do list is pretty long and I've received more for Christmas, though what I don't exactly know yet. My goals for January are going to be modest, finish my remaining Mauridian ships and clean mold lines on some other stuff. May get froggy and paint some 15mm stuff.
I'm not so sure I'd want to get hit by a missile with a "dog brain" AI.

It'd be nice to actually finish off the WIPs I have open, and the other figures in partial or full assembly on my workbench. I just boxed up all my unassembled minis, and I still have about a dozen to choose from (counting the eight goblins as two four-packs and the pair o' Hormagaunts as a single project).

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.

Hrm, well, I pretty much need to work on the following:

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.

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 2016 - Warmahordes -all of them, but mainly Farrow. Bolt Action Brits.  Two ACW forces. Two SAGA armies.  CAV.  Frostgrave.  An army or three for Kings of War.  Guild Ball.  Arena Rex.  Working into a backlog of lead and plastic that would build a small house.  That sort of thing.

My faction choice tends to be "All of the above."

I'm going to paint no less than 1 Reaper mini every month while I finish up my Skaven army. 40 clanrats on the go at the moment.

Goals? Hmmm.

I'm not even going to count my weekly BattleTech minis, since those are necessity.

I'm going to shoot for 6 fantasy pieces, two BattleTech mini-dioramas, and Dana Murphy.

Ironwind Metals Female Mage casting (painted as female drow, tabletop standard): Done.
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!
