The Goal is simple: 

 

Paint ONE mini from start to finish.

 

After painting almost non-stop all summer, the Fall semester left me with no time to paint. It was the hardest semester of my life, and one class in particular sucked the joy out of everything, even life itself. 

 

Now that is over and I have less stress and have decided to dedicate one day for relaxing activities.  I am seriously afraid however that I have forgotten how to paint! I am nervous to pick up the brush again after so long.  I know my work will be terrible. But paint won't apply itself, and I have mini's demanding my attention!  Plus I miss it.

I completed a mini.  I have one to go in about a week and a half to paint for a local competition.  I'm going to make it!

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.

 

I finished those 4! I plan on working on Cthulhu tonight if I have some time. I'm very nearly done with his base layer.

Continuing from last month 

12 pathfinder goblins

5 Battlemaster wolf riders. Close to finishing these already.

2 roughly 18" rocky ridges.

 

If/when I finish the goblins I might switch to GW high elves for a bit. To finish them off (not a goal for this month) I have

15 white lions

10 swordsmen

5 reaver knights

touch up 10 phoenix guard

 

The month isn't over yet and I haven't really done much towards my goals. I have 3 of the pathfinder goblins nearly finished and finished the wolf riders. Never even started on the ridges. Instead I finished a partially painted undead dwarf from Dungeon Saga and painted two females spell casters to a higher than normal standard for me. Still have hope of getting more on the list done if I don't get distracted.

Realized I was incorrect about the submission date.  I have a WEEK!  YAY!  I really AM going to make it!  Base work will be completed today and final touch ups, then my comp mini will be done!

Final touch ups were just COMPLETED.  Sealing in the morning and delivering in the afternoon either before or after my Job Fair. Yay!  And now onto completing other silly projects (big C'thulu!)

I finished up a pair (last of 8) of Saxons at lunch, so I have a good chance of getting the 8 man group based and varnished within this month...month group picture tomorrow.

Nice to see everyone achieving some goals I've nearly painted my UTF Cav force over Jan/Feb so pleased one reason I started a thread for the painting so I could see some progress ongoing each week and tried to stick to one lot of figures but got distracted painting some GW bretonnians as well but at least I got some done .

 Done:

10mm scale

32 Cav

2 Aircraft

28 tanks, apcs

 

15mm scale

3 APCs

 

28mm scale

44 Bowmen

3 Knights

 

hopefully I can be as concentrated during March ::D:

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.

 

I did assemble the 75mm figure, but after trying a dozen different color combinations in photoshop and not liking any of them enough to paint, I ended up setting it aside.  I grabbed another large figure that had been on my shelf of shame for awhile and put some paint on it, but ended up stripping it and starting over.  Hopefully it will be my March project.

 

The positive side of my hobby deferment is that I'm down 10lbs so far, so if I keep that up for the year.... actually that would be 60lbs and losing that much would be problematic.  Better stop by Labor Day.

      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.
       
      January-March

      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).
      Tablescapes Terrain WIP

      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.
