February 2017 Goals

43 posts in this topic

Yesterday I decided that I need to stop spending so much time on Facebook, so hoping I can get *something* done. What that *something* will be I'm not sure yet.

January turned into a new project, essentially putting painting on hold in favor of taking a full inventory of all my miniatures and terrain pieces.  I am now going over the lists, looking for aggressive, yet realistic ways to reduce the backlog of unpainted miniatures and neglected games.  I hope to finish that task over the weekend and post some actual painting goals for February and maybe the rest of 2017.

Well, my goal this month is to paint the five main characters from Masmorra, as well as at least Luke, the Lucky. That's six Chibi characters, which sounds doable.

 

As it happens I've already got the main five primed, and spent last night working on the wizard, so this seems doable.

 

Once those are complete I'm planning on working on the various stretch-goal heroes that came in the Masmorra pizza box.

January -

I baaarely didn't finish my basic anatomy in January, and I didn't get to figure drawing. I also wanted to paint a mini for the Valentine's contest. January was tough.

 

So for February, I hope to finish the last part (heads), and then get through basic figure drawing.

I'm also almost done with the Valentine mini!

If I have time after all that, I'll sculpt my ecorche.

My goal for 2017 is to paint at least 2 table top NPCs each month. I prepped 4 back in January and one is done, so easy target to hit and hopefully exceed this month.

I failed my goals for last month, but I think I can safely say I'll finish a couple of my goals for this month. 

 

So, here we go: 

COMPLETE painting two miniatures that are gifts. 

Complete 2-8 miniatures beyond that. 

 

Current painting desk:

The two miniatures, both at 80-90%. 

Anhurian command and Anhurian spearmen...  8 total (see, possible to paint 8!)

25th anniversary Death.

A handful of Classic & Russian Alternative Chaos Dwarves...

Let's see...what's on the table

 

Dragons don't share- If I'm being realistic, Feb/March goal

1/350 Mercury 9 model kit diorama- will finish this up today most likely

Darksword Elmore angel- She needed to be stripped due to the massive pitting I thought I got smooth enough but didn't. So another round of primer for her. She's for a friend who lost his grandma in January so she needs completed soon.

 

Things I want to start but shouldn't until some other stuff is complete.

 

Darksword owlbear family

Pegasus hobbies 1/144 scale Nautilus submarine model kit. It's so cool, I ordered a lighting kit for it. I've never lighted anything before..I might have lost my mind.

But Khador is fun to play!  Then again, I've been playing Khador since MK1.

 

Ahem, an actual update for me...

 

I finished my 2 gift minis and I finished a mushroom person. I've got my Anhurians to about 40% done.  I'm about to start painting a LOT of white and Leather.

To not buy any more mini's until I complete at least 75% of the ones I currently have.  That would be about 46 or so lol...

  • Finish up DDS2 dragon and the terrain it sits on (then maybe start the rest of the terrain)
  • Finish Khanjira (so close)
  • Do something with the Shadows of Brimstone resin minis
  • Get organized

 

 

I finished DDS2, I may still have a hero or two to finish the whole set I'm not sure though so I'll have to go looking. I've just got the base for Khanjira to finish up and then I'm done with it. As for the last two I've yet to touch either.

Goals for February 2017:

  • Finish Torgar the Barbarian/dwarf vignette
  • Start and finish figure for Jasper as he was the one who won my random drawing for a figure painted by me to tabletop plus standard on my Facebook page.
  • Start and finish (in the next 2 days) a quick tabletop job of a dwarf barbarian for our D&D game that we play on Saturday.
  • Work on the demonic/snake/tentacled goddess I mashed together from Reaper melt bin parts. Need to finish doing some sculpting on her and then prime and paint.
Total = 5

Nearing completion for the Torgar/Dwarf vignette. Probably a couple more days.

 

Dwarf barbarian for tabletop has been done for about a week.

 

The figure for Jasper is in the queue and I'll start it after the vignette is done.

 

The demon goddess may have to wait til next month at the rate I'm going right now. We will see!

 

Progress: 1/5

Well, with Malefactus posting pictures of them in the Blight, I believe I can say I can check off the two.

 

COMPLETE painting two miniatures that are gifts. They were sent, too!

Complete 2-8 miniatures beyond that. 

 

Current painting desk:

The two miniatures, both at 100%. These are now in Mal's Blight, terrifying the neighborhood.

Anhurian command and Anhurian spearmen...  8 total (see, possible to paint 8!)

25th anniversary Death.

A handful of Classic & Russian Alternative Chaos Dwarves...

  • Finish DDS2 terrain.
  • Figure out what the next project will be.

Halfway point eh.  My DDS2 terrain has more paint on it than when I posted this, and I have an idea what my next project will be but nothing concrete.  The plan is to do quite a bit of painting over the weekend.

      I have been working on a pair of goals for my Dreadball Extreme game.  I have them pretty close to done, but I am debating on adding color to the hoses hanging off the back of the goal.  There is a part of me that wants to just leave them the way they are.  On the other hand, I feel that adding some color to the hoses will help with the overall look. The other question that I have is if I do add color, what color should I add?  Please share your thoughts as I could use a second opinion on these.  Thanks.

      So, being April Fool's Day, the Fish of April, as it is, I am starting this thread.
       
       
      I did not complete ALL my goals last month, but I'm well on my way to completing quite a bit this month.  I'll leave it at that for now, as I do not wish to jinx myself.  My goal, as always, will be to finish three figures, and everything over that is bonus. 
       
      On the table are roughly 47 figures between mushroom people, Anhurians, and Chaos Dwarfs.  I have some work to get done...
