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.

      I'm ready to post a few of my board game pieces. More will be posted as they are completed.
      WIP is available here. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83665-folklore-the-game-miniatures/

      First the Angry Oaks.

      Next the Bananach

      Minivember is here once again! I know that today is the 5th so I'm going to have to play a little catch up as I was on vacation until yesterday evening. Now I need to get started painting so this will probably be a shorter intro post than previous years. You may ask why the title says "The Last." Well because this is the last year that I am going to be doing Minivember. Next year I'll have a new fun thing but it will be in October instead of November because of how busy this time of year is for me. And I know that the holidays are part of the challenge but it's getting to be too much of a challenge.
      This year I'm going to be painting minis from Shadows of Brimstone that I have not yet finished. My goal (like every year) is to paint at least thirty (30) unique minis, one (1) for each day. While I've reached this goal in the past I'm going to push myself a little further this year and try to get all of one type of the mini painted. Some of them have up to six (6) of the same mini. I chose to paint this because I want to play the game again and this is a great time to get it done. While this is not all of the SoB minis that I have to do it is a good chunk of them. 
      Anyway, here's this year's calendar and I'll be posting photos as soon as I can.

      I thought this year would be my last ReaperCon. Somewhere along the line, I forgot the joy of speed painting and just painting miniatures for tabletop quality that I can use for gaming, etc. Somewhere along the line miniature painting became something that had to 'wow' or be appropriate for competition.
      I rediscovered my love of miniature painting at the Speed Painting, Sophie Says, and Paint by Die Roll tables at ReaperCon 2018; having 45-60 minutes to paint a miniature was such an exhilarating challenge and I present to you my fun!!!
      Barnabus the pirate was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Esme was a Speed Paint.
      Judas was a Sophie Says. 
      Michelle was a Speed Paint.
      Ogre was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Sekhmet was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Trista was a Sophie Says.

      So my hobby space was getting cluttered; I had multiple sizes of paint/hobby bottles. Now, I could buy a pre-made organizer, but what would be the fun in that! Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls - lets step into the workshop and remedy this issue...
      Step One: Come up with the battle plan.
      This space here needs to be hold an organizer. As you can see, I have larger bottles (Vallejo specials/Daler Rowney Inks), Tamiya Clears, GW pots, and the standard dropper bottle fair.

      Step Two: Find some scrap material to work with.
      I grabbed a piece of 3/4" Oak plywood I had lying around and took some measurements to see if it was a good candidate.

      Step Three: Get to work!
      I tossed in on my cross-cut sled on the tablesaw, marked the line (and always mark your waste/outside cut line to prevent confusion) and cut it down to size.

      This humble 2x4 will serve as the sides and shelf frames for the storage unit...

      I take it to the jointer to get a flat face and edge and we clean up the other side on the planer and the tablesaw.

      Then to the bandsaw to resaw the board. Resawing is cutting a board's thickness in half.

      Ta-da! Two halves ready to be used!

      Here are a few bottles to take as a means of reference to measure the shelf sizes needed.

      Getting a general idea of the shelf layout.

      Gluing up and tacking the shelves in place, adding in the trim to the front of the shelves to match the sides...

      All glued up and ready for sanding and a final seal coat!

      Sanded and a couple coats of Danish Oil later we have our hobby organizer!

      Have you constructed something for your hobby battlestations or otherwise? Foam? 3D printed? Welded? Any other DIY'er that have taken the plunge into focusing that into their painting hobby? Super-sized something from IKEA? Let me know!

      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!
