I'm not sure what I'm going to get accomplished this month.  Just have made a life changing decision that wasn't easy to make and there's gonna be blow back as I go through the process and adjust to the new normal.

 

That said, I'm going to carry over the paint one squad of Space Marines from last month.  If I get it, great, if not, oh well.

My goals for August:

 

Organize Desk

Organize Stuff

Paint Minis

Run Game

 

'Run game' is going to be a goal every month until I can get these promised players to show up. At this point I wonder if I'll have my Bones 4 stuff by the time I can get players together :\ I am an impatient rakshasa.

 

I'm converting a chupacabra right now. I'll have pics when done and then pics when painted. After all, the urging to add the tail came from these forums ::P:

Updated, finished Dhaelia and am currently working on Darth Sana, having a heck of a lot of fun on her too. As soon as I'm done with her (probably tomorrow night), I'll work on Distracted again unless something else grabs my attention ::P:

My main goal is to have fun at Gencon. I primed a dozen goblin wolf riders (Ral Partha) yesterday, then packed my travel boxes and realized that I had no space for them anyway, so I think I'm taking it easy this week. ::P:  After Gencon, we'll see...

Paint two minis.  Given my recent rut, I feel like two minis will be a major accomplishment.

Don't feel bad. I've done nothing hobby related since the beginning of the month.

Going to finish Darth Sana up this weekend. She's nearly done, but a few touch ups and some freehand. I'm also in the midst of scratch building her a custom plinth.

I'm still off on my tangent. Dragon is sitting lonely in a corner. Glanced at romans and goblins but they are happy enough as is. Instead I'm painting one of each undead mini from Dungeon Saga and the Undying Lords from Bones 3. I've got nothing specific I'm working towards so just letting the paint flow where it wants. It's all good as long as colour is being applied.

I managed to apply sand to my Space Marines and Orks.  Was going to prime them, but it's been too humid for spray cans and I didn't feel like messin' with the airbrush.

      Blah, can't win lately.

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.

      All the information you need should be here.

      Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Oh Rats - July 22nd Is attributed as Ratcatcher's Day due to the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. There's too much folklore to get into here - so let's see a ROUS or two!

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Richard Nixon made proclamation 4071 as National Clown week. The challenge is to make a character that's not sculpted as a clown, to have the garish appearance of one. (I would say the style of Killer Klowns from outer space works here too)

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Let's combine two of our favorite things, difficult colors and transparent cloth! Paint a mini of your choice using either Red or Yellow transparent cloth. (or is the term Translucent? I don't remember, I'm not done with my first pot of coffee yet.)

      Good luck

      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...

      Happy March everyone!
       
      Bunch of rollover goals this month for me:

      Finish TARDISReaper's Phone Box (95% done)
      Finish Goldar and his teddy (70% done)
       
      Adding to the list:
      Goblin Shaman - Hangout Figure of the Month
      Frostgrave Troopers TBD (I need to sit down with my list and figure out what the Doctor's are going to want going forward)
