What's the goal of a roll call?


To help motivate people to paint. It is a place for people to place their painting goals for the month.

I don't see a list.... is there supposed to be a list?


If you'd like. I don't because it becomes a list of everything I don't do for the month. I've actually painted more by writing out what is stopping me, writing down vague nebulous goals, and then magically I paint more. :;):


Or fantasize about painting goals in my case.

**SIGH** Yeah, last month was my first roll call... sadly stupid "real life" prevented me from completing my goals.

On the plus side, I have the same goals as last month, so that saves me some time in coming up with goals!

Finished another wraith, Quickshaded the first one in Strong. Might use Dark for this one. :-)

Emptiness, a lonely parody
And my life, another smokin' gun
A sign of my indifference...

This month I'm treating the threat, working slowly but surely on a modular diorama concept for the Halloween contest. With some chance and determination, I’ll also have time to complete a single mini to enter the scenic base competition.

I've had a plan change, once I've finished the Ogre I want to have a play around with some Metal and NMM techniques.

So, we're at: 5 bile thralls, seven goblins (Heroquest), a Death knight (Dragon Strike), three wraiths,a death priest,a wood elf wizard, two dwarves, a Talon light Warjack, the Ogre Chieftain (still needs some details), and a human wizard (Heroquest). 23 for the month, still rolling, i think next up are two ghouls and a ghast...

I may shift from undead to my xenomorphs for a custom Not-Aliens boardgame I am working on. There are only eight of them so far.

Got my learn to paint kits (as seen in other threads) so I started them; one down, four to go, never did get those ghouls going. :-) Added an Anhurian man at arms and a barrow rat, just finished three more Anhurians for a total of 28 this month. Next up is either my Bones werewolf (applying the other half of the lessons from L2PK1) or else starting L2PK2 (and maybe doing the ghouls/ghast as the "Advanced" side of that).

I've had sever delays due to being busy. Will hopefully get back to the Ogre tomorrow and this weekend and start playing around with some different techniques after that.

Thanks to a visit from a field mouse, I only have one goal for October: to clean the aforementioned's "presents" off my painting supplies, and replace any brushes that may have been snacked on. While it's a short deadline, it's also an easily attainable one.

I've only got three easy minis until I can start in on my zombies. There's no way I'll finish by Wednesday night but I got more painted this month than I've painted in the last six months so I'm happy.
