August 2017 Hobby Goals Thingy

Recommended Posts

Primed two five-figure squads of Space Marines last night, a squad of regular marines and a squad of Primaris Intercessors.  Then my spray can ran out. I hope the last couple are alright because end of the can never seems to give as much tooth for the paint to adhere to.  Then I sprayed an MDF structure I made as a test with some nickel spray paint (great for that "industrial" look) and that can ran out as well.  I managed to get the exterior and tops of the two platforms (it's a girder tower structure), but still need to get the interior of the supports and the bottoms of the platforms.  Eventually I'm going to paint hazard stripes around the edges.

Have been in a building mood lately, so my goal for August is to assemble as many minis as possible.  So far I've gotten 7 Eldar Jetbikes with magnetized weapons (missing the stands from Back2Basiks that are in the mail) and 3 Primaris Aggressors w/ Flamestorm Gauntlets.  Next up are more skaven (yes, I've got my fingers in way way too many things...), some primaris Reivers and if I have the time, 3 more jetbikes to bring my squad to 10 (or more likely, 2 5-man squads).  

 

Still have some conversion work to do on all the Primaris marines to fit them into my Legion of the Damned/Salamanders army.  This may happen this month if I get a solid evening of quiet hobby time.

My August goals are (thus far)

 

- More Ork boyz

- Finish at least 2 Frostgrave minis

- Start on The Kraken and its diorama

- objective markers (done!)

 

I've almost finished 29 ork boyz and 1 nob (mind you I'm going for tabletop quality here), dunno if their bases will get done though yet.

I've started on my Bad Squiddo Gunny Peegs (absolutely adorable tiny guinnea pigs. With guns.)

I got my Kraken almost ready to paint. Still working on tentacle mold lines.

I managed to base coat the blue on two of my Crimson Fist marines (regular, not Primaris)...then I remembered that The Defenders released.

At the last minute I actually switched to something on my goal list. Painted a handful of roman auxiliary spearmen the last couple days. Less than 40 infantry and 19 cavalry to finish the army. Might do it by next year. ::P: They're done more for speed than neatness or attention to detail. Churning out a few minis over the summer so I'm happy about that.

Working on Distracted this last week and have started on the diorama, which will probably take up the whole month of September.

Updated goals:

 

Do-able ones:

Before the 1st of Sept:

 

Finish up 8 goblins (they are all over 50% done)

 

Finish up a female demon (she is more the 90% there)

 

Finish up cat minis, soooo many cat minis....

 

Finish up some NPC captives (Townsfolk: woman with broom & 2 boys (one with a oversized shirt, the other has a stick) & a baby (probably 50%)

 

If I get the last of the my 3D printed terrain before Sept I would like to get those finished up as well.

 

(still missing a stove, a dragon skull & sleeping bag)

 

Gonna try to spray some adhesive for the map tiles I'm making. If I do that, those shouldn't take too much time to finish up

 

& finally 

 

Strip this year's potential melt items for ReaperCon. They've been sitting in Simple Green or Purple Power since May, they should be ready to go. Will do that tomorrow.

Not having a fully functional air conditioner in my house has sapped my desire to do much of anything except sitting in my recliner.

Had to revise my goals somewhat. Two of the Dungeon Saga ogres are done, one has had more paint applied to it, and did the face on the necromancer. Haven't touched the biker werewolves yet as I decide to start of the westwind brotherhood biker priests instead. Only four of them but they took a lot longer than I thought. So I've been working on the Coffee Dwarves of Confefe Mountain, and misc Bones. At 21 minis this month so far.

Goals for August

 

1.  Summer 2017 Exchange

2.  July/August RPChallenge objectives

3.  ReaperCon 2017 entries

4.  Bones IV

 

Only completed about half of my goals this month.  Got my exchange mini done, but not much in the way of RP challenge.  Putting all my time and focus into completing ReaperCon entries from now until con day 1.

Need to try to finish Distracted this week. I've been rather distracted with my diorama the last week or so and haven't given the girl the attention she needs to finish!

August goals:

  • Prime all the new Shadows of Brimstone minis
  • Maybe start painting said minis
  • Finish up last D&D PC
  • Start finishing up the Fire Giants if time allows
  • Start preparing for vacation

 

I've mostly finished priming the SoB minis. The only ones I haven't done are the resin ones I haven't even assembled yet. I have not started painting them yet. I have not finished the D&D PC but hopefully I'll have time to do that this week because there is a game next Monday. Haven't touched the fire giants. Vacation prep is in full swing and has taken over the house.

      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
       
       
       

    • By Rob Dean
      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.
