Finish secret Sophie and get it sent out (at least close to ) on time.

Clean off workbench (I'm running out of room again...)

Paint at least five more figures in one or more of the following categories:

--FrostGrave warbands and/or monsters

--Hangout figure of the month

--Chaos figures for my 'End Times' Chaos horde project

--any of the other half finished figures littering my workbench

I forgot: do the @Morihalda challenge: do art every day for a month. 1 day so far.

well, since I got absolutely nothing done last month, the plan for this month is to do more than that!

more specifically I want to get the two necromunda gangs painted.

My main goals for the month are:

  • Finish painting for Secret Sophie exchange.
  •  Wrap up my 2017 RPChallenge

Everything else will just be icing.

 

I'm also trying to come up with goals for 2018.  Thoughts for long term goals?

Lets see...

  • Give the Dragon from DDS2 a shot
  • Start painting the black chess pawns
  • Get started on giving Pathfinder Red Dragon his rainbow coat
  • survive the holidays

 

oh.. and maybe clear some of these random fellows off the desktop if I find time.. the mighta-coulda-gonna-shoulda-painted-them-already pile is getting out of hand..

although, to be fair, 5 of them are the villians for DDS waiting for the dragon to get painted...

I have grand plans this holiday break, I plan on tackling Mal'Drakkar using Tiamat color scheme.  Hope I don't chicken out!

Before break I was thinking of doing some group speed painting; goblins, kobolds, bugbears or maybe gargoyles.

@Rob Dean What kind of desk is that? It looks perfect for the space I have and I really need a new space to store things.

It’s an IKEA “Hemnes” secretary and hutch. I have no idea if it’s still for sale. But I agree, it’s nearly ideal for a painting station. It would even close if I unhooked the vise and cleaned the surface further....
