Barely put any paint on the figure I chose last month. Many things, most of them fun, got in the way. This month I am going to gather mouslings from my collection and paint as many as I can. I have a few on hold at the local game shop I'll purchase this week as well.

My 15mm WWII armor is done except for decals
Still haven't put camo on the last 56 6mm Bradleys, but the rest of the modern US division is done and table-ready (finally)
Now have 3 15mm sci-fi platoons (each different). On platoon nearly done, I've got the color schemes picked out for the other two.
Started working out colors for my 28mm undead army

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

After starting the 'winter tips' thread, I took some of the advice to heart and primed a batch of 9 last night. If I do another batch of 9-10, I'll have enough to last until spring even if I pound out a figure a week.

So far in November, I've primed 4 CAVs, 3 Battlemechs, Charon himself, and the Reaper sorceress that came with a lantern...Gossamer? Charon's boat and a fourth 'mech will be done once the glue cures...the mech assembled this weekend, and the boat had a back lantern snap off when I was drying it. If I could find that 'running up a beach' tutorial again, I'm sorely tempted to try and base the boat in the Styx.

Once the brushes come out, I have to try my luck at glazing skin on a mini [making it a shade darker and giving it a little color], touch up hair/eyes, and generally do the fine details of last month's rush job. Still undecided on dipping that chain fighter, so it sits on the wall of shame, and I have an 'evil fighter' type laying around still.

Getting priority in the queue will be my first decapitated mini (a head swap), if the talk of a Star Wars [D20 Modern / DnD 4E hybrid, the "Saga" edition] comes to fruition...got permission to play a Mandalorian, and the Chronoscope line has several minis that'd fit the bill.

I've got so much going on right now, I've concluded that I'll paint what I paint and game what I game and be happy with it for November.

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

Hmm...

Still working on finishing up the first 1000pts of my Space Marine reboot project. Also have to finish up some Otherworld Drow, and some Reaper odds n ends for D&D. May also finish up some Necrons too. Finally I'm working up to an M48A5 project, using a 1/35 scale Academy (Korea) kit, and maybe a new resin aftermarket turret from Tank Workshop. Going to be painted in Summer Verdant MERDC 4-color camo. Maybe of the NJ National Guard(!)

Did a couple beetles (3544: Fire Beetles) as quick paint jobs, and finished 14021 Shad: Mercenaries Rogue for a diorama. I've got 5 hormagaunts almost done, and I'm working on a wraith and another piece for the diorama that I'd like to have done by the end of the month.

Not doing anything this month. Still kind of burned out, and I actually packed away most of my paints last month. ::o:

Might think about a paint-a-thon over thanksgiving weekend. Or I could just play MMO's all weekend.

Got Commander Stryker and a Lancer assembled over the last couple days. The Lancer is primed, Stryker had to be stripped after a mishap with a brand of primer I hadn't used before. Both will get at least some paint tomorrow.

(A co-worker has talked me into playing Warmachine.)

Got the groovy new mousling box Friday, I like the Reaper carrying case by the way. That, with the ones I had on deck, will be my challenge for the month. Today I plan to sit down with some nice background noise, a movie or maybe a full disc of some show or other. It's my lazy Sunday and I want to see how much I can get done.

One more mini half-assembled, and the broken boat repaired...hoping to have 3 more done before the weekend, so I can go on another priming spree. 16 pieces should get me through most of the winter (which is where I jinx it, and end up having a month where I get 2-3 done at a time). As things sit, a Mad Dog (battlemech), a Viper (battlemech), a random female archer, and Charon's boat are waiting for the can.

Got the Lancer done, will work on the warcaster next, seeing as how he's already primed and all.

Finished most of that stuff. Now I've got 5 more hormagaunts, and another wraith that's just about done.

I've got a ton of Doctor Who lead to paint. And my new DnD group needs minis. I'm fairly certain Reaper will supply models for more than one.

The Lancer looks nice Sarge!

I put together one of the Retribution Warjacks last week. Thought it would make a nifty robot for Infinity. It may get painted this month.

Primed all the models listed, made good progress on the Gorn fleet, then had a masking accident. Back to the drawing board on those.



The Spartan Games Aquians seem to be soaking up a lot of paint, I think I should have used a thicker primer.
