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.

I've been a busy Old Man...for an Old man that is. I've been knocking out pieces for my Spooky Forest Project & trying to populate the place:

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

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:post-8164-0-08068700-1352494016_thumb.jpg

 

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. ::):

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:

      Evening, all,
       
      So I've come to realize one of the big weaknesses I have in my technique is base coating.  As in it always takes too long.  I've started to pay attention to the reasons why and I'm hoping people can offer me some tips to streamline my process and not get hung up on what should be a pretty straightforward step.  
       
      So I start with the blank mini and I'm immediately trying to figure out a color scheme. I'll usually pick a couple of main colors that offer good contrast, figure I'll use cream and brown colors on the less important accessories and I'm off to the races with my base coat, except that this almost immediately falls apart as I start trying to parse the mini into these handful of different colors.  Let's say I want to give a guy a green shirt and dark red pants.  I figure I'll use black for the boots, brown for his belt, no problem.  Except that I'll start painting and realize that his pants have a stripe down the side, or a fringe.  
       
      Well I've already tried to settle on a palette, but maybe I don't want to use any of those colors for the stripe. Okay, maybe I'll jut use an bright red stripe, that's a diferent color, add it to my pallete.  And then I notice the belt has a pouch on it, and I don't want to use the same color for the belt and the pouch, so I need to figure out a different color for that. And then I notice he has a belt buckle that's made of a different material, and now I have entirely too many colors and I don't like tho look of the pallete anymore...I'm just trying to get on a base coat but I'm also trying to figure out how to paint this thing at the same time, and considering that I only get an hour or 2 to paint a night, the process can take days.  
       
      So does anyone have any thoughts?  Other than just stealing color schemes wholesale from the back of the box (something I'm not too good for) can anyone help me figure out how to separate the "what paint goes where" problem from the "get the basic colors on the model" problem?

      Technically, this is batch 3 - I painted 10 more Malvernian CAVs before this round, but:  ADON!  

      Since I have so few Adonese units, relatively speaking, I figured I'd dive in and knock out the whole force at once.  I managed to pick up those APCs on the cheap, so I am very tempted to add some infantry, but the rumor mill says there may be some new space-elfy units coming up soon, so I'm pumping my brakes.  

      Paint job:  Speed paint.  Pic quality: rushed.  Still, hope this helps people get motivated to paint!

      Forgive me if any of these questions are prominently answered somewhere. I've been reading through a lot of materials here on the site and forums and learned a lot, but a few things I still didn't find answers on.
       
      What is liner? I've seen several paints called liner but I have no idea what that means or how it's different from the other paints.
       
      I understand washes and drybrushing, what they're good for and how to do them, but can somebody explain glazing to me? What should I be looking for in a glaze, and when should I use one? How should I use one?
       
      When would one use an MSP HD paint instead of a regular MSP paint, and vice versa?
       
      I've seen a lot of people extolling the use of wet palettes, and I've seen discussion on how to make one, but what exactly are they good for? Is there more to it than simply keeping paint from drying out on your palette? Does it water down the paint? What, if any, effects does it have on mixing, exactly? Do you still need another palette alongside it for certain things?
       
      I also have a few more general questions that have no correct answer, but I'm kinda curious to get a few responses/opinions on, as somebody new to this hobby.
       
      When you're doing a mini, how long do you typically paint for, not including drying time? What do you consider speed painting? When I see these incredible professional paint jobs, how long did those take to paint?
       
      How quickly do you go through paint bottles? Does it make sense to get an extra bottle of one's most commonly-used paints, or do those bottles last a long time?
       
      Do you personally use a sealer? Have you ever regretted not doing so?
       
      What are your ten most essential paints, the ones you personally use all the time for whatever reason?
       
      What painter do you think I absolutely must start being a fan of? What painter have you learned the most from since you started this hobby?
       
      And, what the heck, tell me what your favorite Reaper mini of all time is. Has to be one you've actually painted. I think my favorite is 77021 Lindir, Elf Archer. I butchered the face, but it's a fantastic mini and I learned a lot from painting him when I was just starting out.

      Here we are, a new month and a new (or old) set of goals to achieve.
       
      I'm going to try to be realistic here with how fast I paint, but there are things I have to get done by deadlines.
       
      Catacombs Barbarian - Want to get him done by the 15th so that I can enter him into a contest ran by Catacombs. Done! Figure Exchange (on the side) with a friend coming to Vegas next month. - Starting on it Figure Exchange (on the side) with another friend, this is a 2-figure vignette. - Haven't started Work on the 54mm Figure for the 54mm+ challenge. - Didn't get a chance Work on my brother's VERY late diorama, gotta pick away at it. - No additional work.

      I apologize for the picture quality, snapped with my cell phone in the main gaming hall. This was the piece I got to paint in the 5:00 round of the Wyrd Minis Speed Paint competition. 45 minutes of brush time, ten colors of paint, three brushes, all 0s.... It was an interesting challenge, not unlike painting at work at lunch time. That turned out to be good practice.
       
      If anybody is interested, I can redo the shot tomorrow with a dedicated camera.
