Didn't set goals over the summer, just played around a lot with different things. School is about to start up again, so I'm back into goals mode.

 

- Practice figure drawing: gesture/structure/anatomy

- Bargue plate 49 (Just updated the blog on this one, updating my drawing post here after I finish this post!)

- School starts, so new portrait and lots of figure drawing!

- Also beginning to explore the Munsell color system

- Bonus round: paint some game plastic, Zombicide or Massive Darkness

This month my goals are:

  • To to finish my ReaperCon diorama which is a scratch built base and 6 figures on it, this will be for the ReaperCon Diorama/Bombshell Babes Diorama categories.
  • To paint my SC75 figure for my entry into their contest at ReaperCon. This is their Brock the Wanderer figure, this will also be one the judges can consider for Painters category. 
  • Try to do an Ordinance figure (large mech from Infamy) to enter it into that category at ReaperCon, also giving it rust effects. 
  • Maybe paint up a couple of fun/speed-paints while between projects or if I'm needing a small break.

I still have got a number of female Russian tank riders over here. I need to sculpt some snow camo clothes on them.

 

And I have got some figures someone asked me to finish. See if that will work like I imagined. We will see.

Paint my black Bishops for the chess set (using 02281 Crypt Wraith)

Start my DDS2 dragon ( he's going to be a silver ( or gold ) dragon defending against scoundrels instead of the traditional red )

 

With kids back in school and fall activities starting, that's probably more than I'll actually accomplish :D

I seem to do better without set goals but I've been doing a lot of painting and terrain lately. Just need to keep going. So rough guide to what's on my mind and table.

 

7 partially painted man sized minis. I use these when I want to use up excess paint on the pallet. They're all getting to the point where I should just finish a few things and get them off the table.

 

Romans. For the last year they've been my army closest to finished and I really want to have something totally finished. 8 spearmen, 17 legionaries, 8 cavalry, 6 camel riders and a couple characters to go. Last month I did a dozen. Someday I may buy some cavalry with javelins and more camel riders but otherwise I have everything I want for them.

 

Goblins. Army #2 on the want to complete list. I've got an almost finished GW man mangler catapult, 15 wolf riders prepped and ready to paint soon and another 20+ infantry set out. Trouble with these guys is I'm not sure if I have everything I want and with the Bones Kickstarters I keep getting more. Not sure if/when they'll ever be totally finished.

 

High Elves. Army #3 on the close to finished list. I've had about 30+ of these guys left to paint for years. Now that the romans and goblins are getting closer I'm thinking of finishing these too. Good part about these is I have no plans for buying more.

 

Cultists. Have a bunch for Frostgrave and in Bones and have some ideas for games using them.

 

Various hills, ruins and trees for terrain with the DDS ruins high on the list.

 

If things continue like they have been I'll likely work on about 50% things from this list and 50% of what ever catches my attention at the moment.

I'm going to somewhat recycle last month's goals at least finishing the last zombie ogre and the necromancer. Other than that I'm going to try and keep to 20+ minis for the month.

FIgure a day is always my goal for every month. Weekdays I usually try to do simple figures since I work a 8-5 job then weekends I go for a little more complex figures or do 3x figure sets.

Hey, another guy from Saskatchewan and even my favourite city! I went to the UofS 20+ years ago. Too bad I'm 4 hours south of there. Gotta ask do you actually reach the 30 mini goal? Even when I'm doing fast stuff I've only painted that many a couple of times in my life.
