So, for October this year I'm going to attempt to paint a mini a day. This will take the place of Minivember probably from now on. November's have just become too busy for me to feasibly paint everyday. This will be called All Minis Eve! I am currently in the process of making an advent calendar for October. I'll post how I'm doing it and progress, I hope to have it done before October so I can kick things off this year.
How it works: I have tons of minis laying around so unless you want to or don't have enough (is that a problem around here?) minis you won't need to buy any (unless you want to). You will need 31. Once the calendar is assembled 1 mini will go in each felt pouch and you pull one out each day then plan, prep, and paint it. You have that one day to do it. Midnight to midnight. I will not get to pick out my own minis as I will have my Husband do it so it'll be a surprise each day.
To start I bought:
Spooky spider web fabric Adorable ghost ribbon (1.5") Tan felt (three 9"x12" sheets) Black felt (three 9"x12" sheets) Fabric glue
I also have handy:
Sewing needles Orange thread Fabric tape measure Ruler Scissors Fabric pencil Pen/Sharpie
I don't yet have a dowel and ends for it or photo transfer paper. I will edit the above later if I've forgotten anything.
Some pictures of materials:
Above is a rough sketch of what the layout will be like. I have cut the tan felt into 33- 3"x3" squares and a 3"x9" rectangle. I will take 1 yard of fabric and affix the squares with fabric glue and sew them on as well for extra hold. I will leave several inches free at the top to put the title which I will cut out of the black felt. I will use a piece of ribbon to underline it and then put the squares below.
First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173). She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops. She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.
Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time. All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest? Finally just brute forced it to get her done.
Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details. But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!
Here are 2 of the pin-up babes from Wargamer LLC's kickstarter Hot & Dangerous.
First up Lagertha the Shieldmaiden. I love how her cloak turned out. Not so happy with the face, it look pretty terrible in the photos, its not so bad in hand. I need to get better at thinning my paints I think.
Rosie the Bowman (the official name). I did not like the concept art at all, but the finished sculpt turned out great. I love how she has a lot of spunk.
This is one of Reaper's older minis, Reaper 2040 Gargoyle. I painted him gray at first, but though it was kinda boring so I used a green glaze on top of the gray. Pretty happy with the effect. The white marble column is too white though, should have been more subdued. Oh well, another one done!

Haven’t seen this one mentioned yet and it does seem a bit different for the zombie survival genre of miniatures games:
Theres a bit of a discount for those backing in the first 72 hours.
I’ll admit I find this interesting. Like the ships and docks setting.
Dice Sports also had a previous kickstarter for a different game, Damnation, that is set in the same world.
I’m not familiar with the company or their previous game. If anyone here has had experience with either I’d like to hear what you think.
