Ok I finished nothing last month. Let's see if I can beat that record this month. With Millenium Con I may actually knock some stuff out.

2014 Painting Goal: 6 Figures/ 36 Painted as of 01/22/2014

For other Wargame and miniature related stuff you can read my blog at http://tacticalrock.blogspot.com

 
 



Does anybody else find it odd, by the way, that the information age has led to language becoming an oblique and imprecise tool where even the most straightforward phrasing is pored over with chicken entrails and bone tossing to divine the true meaning?

Okay I think I'll take the plunge. 10 years of not painting anything, so I will set a very modest goal. I have one metal orc of indeterminate origin that I need to finish as a coach for the husband's Blood Bowl team. It's going to see heavy handling so I won't be doing anything super awesome like I see a lot of photos for here, but I think it's a good (re)starter project.

Still have the carry-over modelling project from last month. Also will be working on finishing up the remaining GW Dark Elf models I have, and get back to painting up my 28mm Late Roman army. Oh, of course I couldn't resist and just started a NEW 15mm Marian Roman army...

Carrying over the Ogre, havn't sat down to paint for a couple of weeks mostly due to preparing for a weekend long trip to London last week. Now that's over I should be getting back to it this weekend. Hopefully will clear him off by next weekend and want to get on to some experimenting with different metal techniques before I paint anything proper again.

This month, I'm working on Reich of the Dead figures. 8 GIs converted to carry shotguns, 'cause I can :devil: , 7 Kroid Riflemen, and six cultists standing around a summoning circle. And that Kraken from last month that I finally finished trimming, but which is still taunting me, daring me to paint!

I'm hoping to finish my Purple Worm scenic base this weekend and then get started on another mini straight away. My goal for this month is three with scenic bases!

Might as well throw my hat into the ring, currently I have a couple mini's to finish.
bones Gnoll and that blasted cave troll that i can't decide on a skin tone for.
Isabella Locke.
the guard and rat from the learn to paint kit.
and finally I am going to try my hand at some of those suggestions for improving my lox jarg mini.

I also have a handful of the ddm reapers that I plan on redoing for practice, these are our generic beasties and I'm thinking a repaint and a #1-12 on the base on each one for combat purposes.

November...I'd like to polish off L2PK 1,2 and maybe 4 this month. If I could finish 5 and get some work on 3 I'd really be jamming, because that would free me up for the real painting: Dreadball and Sedition Wars in December.

I figure I should jump back in the mix if I am going to hit my painting goal for the year and get all of my minis ready to game with. This month's focus is finishing my first Pathfinder module's worth of minis and getting a few of my friends cowboys completed. I also should really finish up my Ogre WIP piece and post up all those photos I am hoarding on my camera.



I should finish about 12 minis this month doing that. Maybe more.



So far: 1 Mini complete

2013: 14 Minis Painted

2014 Mini Painting Goal:  Paint something :down:
Free time = 0

My goal for the month: Paint something, anything. I don't care if it's a CAV, a Battlemech, or a Barrow Wight, or even a Bone; I need to get into the habit of painting regularly again; I miss the meditative zen that comes with it.

It's a three day weekend, and the weather is supposed to be gorgeous. I'm going to try to knock out my Monster Squad SOBAH list; wish me luck! Contrary to the models I've been working on lately, I'm going back to my old style for these guys - basecoats, dip, matte and call it a night. True tabletop painting!

Here's the starting point:Attached File  2012-11-09 15.43.38.jpg   85.67KB   0 downloads

Two Bones Minotaur of the Maze
Two Bones Bugbear Warrior (1 mostly done)
One Bones Ogre Champion (mostly done)
One Bones Gnoll Warrior

So, shouldn't be too much for me. ::):
Happiness is just a word to me
And it might have meant a thing or two
If I'd known the difference
Emptiness, a lonely parody
And my life, another smokin' gun
A sign of my indifference...

-Seatbelts, "Gotta Knock A Little Harder"

I pretty much agree with everything that Last Knight said.

Finished the GIs and Kroids today and sealed the cultists and their display base. Been a really good day today.
But the Kraken is still staring at me...... :wacko:
