Devin's 2018 Art goals:

  • Continue on pace of doing about 4 to five miniatures at a time.
    • But not stopping as much like I did last year. LOL
  • Complete 3 diorama's I have Idea's for.
  • Repaint a TitanFall 2 miniature (Jack Cooper) in "The 64" [the six four] color scheme as a tribute to a game that I have enjoyed so very much.
  • Learn how to draw (well sketch really) From Jake Parker's stuff.
  • Dive a little bit deeper into the sculpting world
  • Try my hardest not to purchase any more paints or miniature this year. ::D: ( <ya right, LOL)

My 2018 hobby goals include:

  • Running a Dark Conspiracy RPG for my gaming group
  • Running a Frostgrave/Ghost Arch game at Reapercon in October
  • Painting the 10 miniatures from the hasslefree kickstarter
  • Painting the 6 miniatures from the Going Native kickstarter
  • Painting the 5 miniatures from the Bear's Head kickstarter
  • Continue painting the Monthly Mithril Miniatures (On track with one)
  • Reduce and limit the WIP box (formerly the shelf o' shame) to 6 figures. It currently sits at 12

 

So for the month of January in keeping with my 2018 goals I plan to:

  1. Paint a Mithril Miniature for the month
  2. Finish three figures from my WIP box
  3. Paint a character mini for Dark Conspiracy
  4. Paint a monster figure for Ghost Arch

Hopefully I will keep to my longer term goals better this year than last.

The goal for this month is to see how many painting days I can string together.  I'm shooting for at least 30 minutes of painting every day except Thursdays (I play DnD on Thursday nights; though I may bring a small paint kit to the store with me so I can still get in my 30 minutes of painting).

 

Minis to work on/finish this month:

 

My DnD character: wizard

Shield Golem my Wizard acquired: Bones Iron Golem

Bones Fire Sphere (if I acquire enough Bones Fire Walls for the Wall of Fire spell, then I'll do that too)

Finish and base Wyrm Gear

well I did ok in December, except my poor Bonesylvanians. From December:

 

  • finish 3 bonesylvanians
  • Paint 3 Warbuggies
  • Paint 1 Dakkajet
  • work on new Terrain piece - gonna be a ruined Egyptian temple I think

 

For 2018, I toyed with the idea of doing a mini inventory but I can't be bothered. It would take time away from painting.

 

Short term (January) goals:

  • finish my Ork Lootaz (aprox 12 models)
  • finish my Ruined Temple terrain project
  • finish the poor Bonesylvanians
  • base two of the 'weeping angels' bones models (already painted)

 

Long term goals:

  • finish my ork army (roughly 1 battlewagon, lootaz, lots of nobz and grots, Mek Gunz and Flash Gitz - latter two not yet purchased)
  • finish at least 52 monster models for our RPGs (I figure 1 a week should be doable, right? right?!?)
  • paint Mythic Battles: Pantheon models
  • start my Ratticus Mechanicus army (this would be GWs Skitarrii models with Skaven heads and other conversions, I don't think it'll be finished in 2018)

My year-long goals are to improve and to work on my literal pile of unpainted minis, while trying not to increase it to a ridiculous level. I will probably fail on that last part.

 

For January:

 

Actually get a storage system set up

Put magnetic bases on all my pewter figures with delicate bits (and learn from my mistakes)

Go back and clean up my finished minis, and reseal them (and repeat, learn from my mistakes)

Practice gap filling and boiling on Kaladrax

Get paint on Maal Drakar with ridiculous and unprecedented speed

2018 Year Goals

Finish painting Romans, goblins and High Elves. 

Work on other armies, warbands and random things that catch my attention.

Finish the Tyrant of Halpi dragon.

Make more terrain including a castle.

Improve my painting and just try to build, paint and play as often as possible.

 

January goals

Finish Romans. 6 camel riders 50% painted and 12 velites partially painted to go. 

Goblins. 5 wolf riders and about a dozen pathfinder goblins primed and waiting. Decide how I'm going to build the Oathmark goblins and assemble them. Touch up and reassemble 20 Thunderbolt Mountain heavy goblins with spears. These are painted but without shields and have gotten banged up over the years.

Terrain. Build a roughly circular hilltop surrounded buy cliffs suitable for the DDS2 ruins to sit on. Build 2 craggy ridges.

Make some more flock.

 

It's been between -15 and -20 C INSIDE my garage this past week. Didn't feel like using my foam cutter under those conditions. No ventilation in my hobby hole so I try to do the majority of the stinky stuff in the garage. It's suppose to be getting warmer soon and I'm feeling almost healthy again. The garage is usually about 10 degrees warmer than outside so once it gets close to 0 I'm fine working with no gloves on.

 

January's already off to a blazing start for me. I've finished 4 velites and made a clump of 3 trees already this year! Ok, I cheated a bit. All I painted today was the shield bosses on 4 minis. They're done unless I try to paint some kind of design on the shields but I'm not sure what or if yet. The trees were also based yesterday. Today I just hairsprayed and flocked them so they look better.

Why not join in.  I'm new here, but on the other hand I like the vibe this place has, and doubly so just how friendly and encouraging it is.

 

For Q1...

  • Set up a dedicated miniatures workspace.  Painting at my gaming area gets too cramped, way too quickly
  • Pick up the Learn to Paint Kits, as well as additional paints from Reaper, and maybe other companies too ---LTPK's acquired Jan 5th, 2018!
  • Regain the "courage" I had fifteen years ago to just paint, and not worry about this or that (or, in other words, paint, and learn while doing such)
  • Join the Rainbow Dragon challenge --- Joined, hubby joined as well, and my dragon and paints are in, hubby's to be ordered still

For 2018...

  • Pick up a "handful" of miniatures from various companies
  • Start a few Nefsokar and Koborlas minis, because I like the look of them
  • Pick up some CAV miniatures because 'mechs.

Welcome WhiteWulfe!

 

I've just been doing yearly goals and then not looking at them. This year I'm going to do monthly goals, put them on a sticky and stick it somewhere that I might see it.

 

January Goals

Finish minis I've promised to paint for others, which currently sits at 14. To keep it simple, only going to plan on 2 battletech mechs and 2 fantasy figures.

      It's time again for a year-end roundup of the figures I managed to finish last year. These are the figures I finished during the calendar year of 2018, which was, let me tell you, another ... interesting year.

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).

      P.S.: I've been up since 5AM last year. No wonder I'm all loopy ;) Also, Richter Belmont is amazing in Smash Bros Ultimate, so that may have contributed to this tangent.
