July 2017 Hobby Goals of DOOM!!

Recommended Posts

Really, I think as long as we are having fun and things are getting made/painted then it's a win! Priortization is cool if you have deadlines even if they are just made-up deadlines to drive you forward.

So far this month, I finished up ten figures from my two end of June trips, and I'm about to go put a final spray varnish on a dozen 1/72 fantasy Vikings.

It might be a bit late to come up with July goals, but since my remaining June goals were pushed aside when my Dwarven Forge castles arrived, my one goal for the month is to finish painting the pile of dwarvenite.  I'm down to the more fiddly decorative bits.  Also try to get my photo area set back up so I can start posting pics again.

My goal is to not paint anything.

 

 

 

 

(i always end up breaking these goals so I'll try and use failure to my advantage)

So far I am holding to my goal for this month.  Though the wife and kids are spending the weekend with her brother and his kids at the Great Wolf Lodge, while I have Drinking and Dragons and Frostgrave this weekend.  So there is that.

Just got home a bit ago, from vacation, massive amount of house work to do sadly. Plus yardwork that was left undone.

 

My goals for what time I've got left this month are to

1. Clean up my hobby area (sadly quite messy and crowded atm)

2. Finish off my tankbustas for my Ork army - they pretty much only need their bases done and maybe a bit more touchup.

 

Hopefully that'll get me all back and ready to go full steam ahead in August =D

Yup that's basically what has happened this month here too:( Hopefully I'll at least get my Bones III core set unboxing video done (I got it off Ebay, unfortunately missed it because of RL things in 2015) and priming my 6 mini's ready to go.

Powder room construction project was finished and this past weekend I managed to get a little hobby time in.  As this year was supposed to be all about Skaven (before Bones dragons and Black Plague abominations took over...), my buddy came over for a build session.  He and my son built their respective Tau while I got 10 clanrats assembled and thanks to the receipt of my BaseBoss package, based along with a dozen other bases prepped for future skittering friends.  I know 10 clanrats isn't much, and it does nothing to help the other projects get moving, but it's 10 minis who, other than a little Vallejo texture paste, are ready for primer.  Prepping for a week of travelling next week and dealing with sick kids so that's probably it for the month though...  

 

Oh and the new season in Diablo 3 isn't helping anything at all...

I painted a mini start to finish today, which is something I haven't done in a while.  Next up:

  • Order exchange mini(s)
  • Prep exchange mini(s)
  • Start painting exchange mini(s)

In the time it takes for me to decide on and place an order, we'll see about squeezing in another mini.

 

Halfway through update:

  • Done
  • In progress
  • One is already completed, more will be primed tomorrow.

For the bonus goal, I didn't just squeeze in one, I squeezed in two.  That makes a total of four things painted this month.

 

And done with all.  I even have a few days to spare.

I'm starting by basing the five figures I finished at the end of the month.

 

Beyond that, I'm trying to work on painting cavalry faster, so I have a couple of units in process and want to finish a dozen or more, and one of the five to-be-based figures is the forerunner of a little unit of rangers, so I want to finish them too.

 

Well, hmmm...I do have a couple of days left and a Friday off, but I got distracted and the rangers aren't cleaned yet.  I haven't touched the cavalry units all month, except to move them out of the way, but I have finished a centaur and three individuals on horses, so at least that goal is being gestured at. ::P:

July Goals:

 

  • Finish Fire giants (3). This is about half way done already as of now.
  • 2 NPC's for our Exalted 3rd game
  • 2 PC's for Exalted 3rd
  • Start on PC's for D&D (currently 2)

 

Finished only one of the D&D PC's the other one is about 2/3 done. Player liked it despite it not being finished yet. Fire Giants are going to have to wait for a while since Shadows of Brimstone wave 2 is arriving today. Putting that together will take priority over everything else for a while.

      The year is halfway over! What do you want to achieve this month?
       
      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.

      Blame @Bathory for the thread title and unofficial goal for this month...
       
      If you're like me, you've got a bunch of unfinished projects collecting dust. Rather than start something new, why not finish something old?
       
      My goals:
      Finish stone giant and these guys

      It’s the 1st, and time for more goals...
       
      I want to:
       
      finish my six Sleestaks
      paint a couple of vintage Tolkien units
      get some project planning on paper
      play some games

      I've got tons of goals for this month. What do you have planned?
       
      For me I have to finish these by the 23rd:
      Amiri, Iconic Barbarian Tiik Champion Battleguard Golem Nolzur's Griffon  
      This shouldn't be a big issue as I've already started on the griffon and the other ones are prepped and ready to go. On top of these I /still/ want to pick up the fire giants and then I'm going to start Cthulhu.

      So, Goals for the new year, or at least the first month of it.

      --Make Progress on new mini for Vorgh, Ice Elementalist Sorcerer in my F2F Game.
      --Finish Painting Triceratops Mini for Twitter Exchange Organizer.
