BOO! October Hobby Goals!

Recommended Posts

Learn to get a reasonably even coat when airbrushing.

(Poor Kyphrixis has had to take a long bath after my previous attempt...)

 

Finish assembling the 10pack of KoW Skeletal Archers I started on last month... and prime and paint those, the 20pack infantry, and the katapult...  

 

Start my Rainbow challenge Dragon. 

 

Do a 'little bit' of conversion on Wyrmgear... 

(It's a nice mini, it's just not 'right' )

 

Or just laze about on the couch...

For October:

  • Enjoy birthday
  • Continue to work on diorama
  • Finish Minivember prep (currently doing this)
  • Paint more than one mini this month

 

I'm actually done with the Minivember prep now! Still working on Dagon. Birthday was very enjoyable. I've only just ordered the big stuff for the diorama (like the base that I kind of need to really get going), it should all be here next week.

Shifting gears, or possibly just slipping and grinding them. Only big piece of terrain that I have to paint is the Mausoleum and graveyard expansion. Halloween and all coming up I'm thinking of doing them. My wife likes to set up little seasonal dioramas on our china cabinet in the dining room. Undead I've got lots of and can easily do more.

 

Original October goals;

DDS2 ruins - done

6 roman camel riders + bones pack camel - slightly painted

15 goblins wolf riders - 4 done, 3 partials, 8 primed

 

Optional goals ::P:;

Mausoleum and graveyard scenery

Autumn trees

16 pathfinder goblins

Never counted how many cultists from Reaper and Northstar

recover from my art hangover.   

done painting dragons for a while, My dragon Insomnia took up a lot of brain space, named for the number of nights I got up to fix "one little detail" . 

paint more (3-4)  bones from the second KS, must stay on target. 

Freehand a pattern onto some tiny metal persons clothes. 

 

 

recovered from art hangover with quantity. 

10 figures painted. mostly to tabletop only. 

no freehand yet.  

 

New goal: assemble and paint some KoD starting survivors.

Primary Goal:

Get model work table cleared off and in working order so I can prime miniatures and get some general painting done:(

REALLY! I need to get that place clear, I have a possible commission in the wings if I can get ready and we nail down a price. 

 

Secondary: 

KEEP the work space clean so I can continue to work.

So, I still need to finish 6 Saxons to make  a Dux Bellorum base, and I'm about to head out on a trip with two of them, plus a team of 6 miscellaneous modern fantasy figures.  I think that I am building a war band out of my speed paint figures and the prizes associated with them...

 

Midmonth update: I’m still stalled on the dratted Saxons, but the speed paint war band is well along. I’ve also finished three fantasy wargame units, which is to say, a dozen foot and a dozen goblin wolf riders. (Old 25s as usual, for the units...)

I transferred my finished figures to new (to me) display cabinets. Does that count?

Well those are the two things that are getting done this month. I've gathered everything for the diorama and have started it. As far as painting more than one mini this month, well... that's probably not happening at this point.

It appears I didn't set any goals for October, so let's see how I did without them.

  • Painted on Rainbow Challenge dragon.  It pulled a Bones stunt and is currently in limbo.
  • With all of the new KD:M WIPS starting up, I was reminded that I never put together my bronze level "bakcers" bonus box.
    • Assembled 5 Kings Men
    • Assembled the Rawhide armor kit (4 minis)
    • Assembled the Phoenix
    • In the process of assembling the Phoenix armor kit (4 minis).  It doesn't look like I'll get done tonight but it should be finished by tomorrow.
  • Purchased minis for the winter exchange - to paint and for gifting.
  • Cleaned mini to paint for exchange.  Made a greenstuff base and glued mini to said base.  It'll get primed tomorrow for painting in November.

So no goals = production.

Diorama is coming along quickly. Waiting on things to dry currently. Not going to get more than one mini painted. I'll probably finish up a mostly painted one but nothing else will get finished. Birthday celebrations that have happened have been great. And Minivember is ready to go.

I think I've painted a total of 2 hours since this post. Too much work, too little energy in October which is pretty normal. I primed all of the Graveyard Expansion scenery that I wanted to paint, painted a couple of the tombstones and the brick work on the mausoleum. Not much chance that I'll finish anything else by tomorrow.

  • finish Gorkanaut (may leave off LED I'm planning til paint is done as I still have to order the kit)
  • work on Kraken Diorama entry! Plan is to at least get the base terrain put together and start on basecoating the minis
  • finish "Owlbear and Cubs" fr Darksword minis, which I just ordered. Hopefully in time for my sissy's birthday (she loves bears and has two kids so it'll be perfect!)

 

I may need to start entitling these "what I intend to do" followed by "what I actually did"

 

So, what I actually did:

  • Got LED kit in, and placed in Gorkanaut. Gorkanaut Paint is done, weathering is not.
  • minis basecoated, in a couple places even almost done. Rest of base not so much.
  • Owlbear and cubs have arrived, I've washed them. Like with soap and water.
  • basecoated 3 Bonesylvanians
  • finished a hellhound and a Malifaux neverborn (enslaved nephilim)
