I've got tons of goals for this month. What do you have planned?


For me I have to finish these by the 23rd:

  • Amiri, Iconic Barbarian
  • Tiik Champion
  • Battleguard Golem
  • Nolzur's Griffon


This shouldn't be a big issue as I've already started on the griffon and the other ones are prepped and ready to go. On top of these I /still/ want to pick up the fire giants and then I'm going to start Cthulhu.

Carried over from January's thread...

  • Set up a dedicated miniatures workspace.  I originally said Q1, and odds are beginning of March this will be resolved.  Still debating between desk in bedroom, additional desk in living room, or some sort of add-on to current desk (probably the last one, and then add in one of the "wide" Alex drawer units for storage of various things)
  • Pick up some CAV miniatures.  This was a "sometime in 2018" goal, and is still sitting there.

For February!

  • Clean up a squad of Catachan Jungle fighters as they're rather dust covered, and figure out some sort of paint scheme for them that works for the jungle/urban stuff I've been thinking about for a decade.  Bonus points if all ten are painted through February!
  • Clean up a squad (10 units) of my Tau Pathfinders, and work on figuring out some sort of paint scheme for them.  Bonus points if these ten are painted.
  • Continue, and finish, the Layers Learn to Paint Kit.
  • Pick up some green stuff and a few sculpting tools.  For... SCIENCE!  Yes, we'll go with that.
  • Start my rainbow dragon!
  • Start on one of the minis I picked up in January - I suspect a gnoll, a minotaur, or a werewolf will be involved (added late Feb 3)
  • Get an inventory spreadsheet started up so I know what I have, and their current state (added late Feb 3rd)
  • Paint every day, even if it's "just" half an hour. (added late Feb 3rd)
  • Narrow down items on wish lists at various places in preparation for tax return order.  This goes for minis, as well as sculpting tools. (added late Feb 3rd)
  • Assemble some of my pewter Skaven from the 25th anniversary box (added late Feb 3rd)
  • Organize bits boxes (added late Feb 3rd) 


For Q1!

  • Acquire additional paints that both hubby and I want (seriously contemplating the Reaper 54pc BYOPS consisting of Bones and HD paints, as well as some from Secret Weapon)
  • Improved stuff at miniatures desk (better light(s), places to put things, that sort of deal)
  • Basing supplies from Green Stuff World, Happy Seuppuku, and Secret Weapon

Probably going to write more in over the next few days ^_^

My February Goals...


--Finish painting my Warforged Bard's Mini.(Soundwave Piece from Transformers Monopaly)

--Get Address to send Max's Mini-Minions to their new Home.

--Put paint on several WizKids Nolzurs D&D Minis.

--Make signifigant progress on one of the classic Video Games I've never beaten for some reason.


My 2018 Goals...


--Paint at least 50 sessions this year, averaging 1 per week.(4/5 weeks so far)

--Finish at least 3 Video Games I have not beaten yet.(Beaten Final Fantasy 3 and Dragon Quest 6. Next up either Final Fantasy 8 or Tactics Ogre.)

--Prepare for my new D&D Campaign.(Thinking about doing an Eberron game or a Dark Sun game.)

--Finish up my current EPIC level D&D Campaign.( The Swinedimples School Campaign has been fun, but it will soon be time to try something else. Also, one of my players is moving away in a few months, so having a game I can prepare large chunks of ahead of time will help. Once I have to run a bunch over a long weekend when we can get together, yeah, I'll need to be able to set stuff up in mass.)

Hmmm... not sure.  The flat I tried last month didn't really grab my interest so it is now on the shelf of shame.  I cleaned a 75mm figure and plan to assemble it, but I'm not sure if I really want to paint an effort piece right now.  If not I have some Bones prepped that I could quick paint at any time.


My main painting issue though is that my "get in better shape" kick that I started last year has continued into this year and I haven't hit on a good way to combine the two activities.

There isn’t much miniatures-related that I could imagine doing at a treadmill desk, so you’re probably right.  I have found, though, that being in better shape has generally improved my interest and engagement with my other activities.  And I think about gaming projects during bike rides...


For myself, January was a slow month, so my goal is to work on any of three ongoing projects and try not to be distracted by anything unrelated. (1/72 fantasy campaign, vintage science fiction, and vintage Minifigs Tolkien...)

Well I still have 9 Mouslings and 6 Dwarf Thunderers left from last month and a partially done Stone the Undead Gunslinger on the table. So the obvious goal is to get those done first. All of these are at least halfway done, so I just need to keep from getting distracted.

After those will be

Hagar Dwarven Hero 

Prairie Tick Queen 

Helstromme  (all of whom are prepped and primed)

GW Dwarf Grudge Pony

GW Dwarf Slayers (one normal, one tied and bound)

GW Dwarves with hand weapons (12) I figure these may take awhile, so they might be done in batches of 3 or 4.

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
      So, the ground rules:
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

      The year is halfway over! What do you want to achieve this month?
      Here's my list:
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.

      Surprise. It's me. I'm the next Quisitor too. 
      The obligatory roolz posting:
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
      I will be posting late the night before as I won't be awake super early in the morning.
