Question the 13th of March:  How do you spend an unexpected day off from work? (snow day, road closed, whatever)

 

Well, if for some reason I cannot login and work remotely, then I go down to my studio and spend the day pretending that I am a full time mini sculptor who has never heard of XML.

I have lots of old school minis, but I don't have a painting queue; I paint stuff as the mood strikes me.

 

^This

 

I almost got this one out of the way back drawer to paint for Reaper Con (still might).  It would be fun to see Julie's reaction to it. I'm not sure what the date on this one is, but it was definitely one of her earlier works.

Still a bit too new to the hobby to have anything released very long ago. That combined with being scared of lead has me without any old school minis. But maybe with the BoGW I'll get my first. :D

Closest thing I have to old school is a bunch of 3rd edition Space Marines and Dark Eldar from Games Workshop.  Given its release was in 1998, that's close enough in my eyes ^_^

 

I don't really have a painting queue as, like others have mentioned, I paint what catches my attention/mood at the time, but it is part of what I consider my backlog (aka miniatures that need painting). 

 

Edit: I suspect my Catachans Heavy Flamers, Meltagun users, and veteran sergeants/captains are probably old enough as well.

No.

 

I just painted it during last week's snow days, an old slaanesh cavalry mini.

Do they count as old school if they're still commercially available?

 

The Reaper DHL miniatures with the lowest SKU I have (excluding the ones in DHL Classics packs) are 02018 Familiar Pack I and 02050 Tristan Loremistress but I don't know when these were originally released.

 

I have several BattleTech miniatures whose sculpts are at least 20 years old but I don't know if they count either since most of them are still available from Iron Wind Metals.  (Some of these minis are in IWM blisters, some are in Ral Partha blisters, and some were bought second-hand online.)

I have an unpainted HeroQuest set waiting for paint, but I can't say its in my queue.

Not currently in my painting queue. But I do have a bunch of old Ral Partha minis. Some are AD&D, some are Battletech. Some were individual blisters, some were boxed sets.

 

The biggest project would be the used Battle Masters set I found last year. The minis (over a hundred) have a basic paint job worth stripping and redoing. The stickers are going to drive me crazy.

I have prepped and primed a 1986 lizard shamaness from Grenadier, a 1995 elf thief by Ral Partha, and an oriental looking priestess/goddess that is stamped TSR Ral Partha 19?5.  Can't make out that third digit since it is right on a mold line.  They are ready to go should the mood strike, but are pretty far down the priority list.

He did say 20 years old and 1998 was 20 years ago. 

 

This is what being old feels like.:wacko:

Pretty much this. I'm hoping to paint the last of my GW high elves sometime soon and they'll be around that 20 year mark. I have older but no specific plans for them at the moment. They's been sitting here for 20+ unpainted and I'm working to correct that.

I have stuff that was 20 years old in 1998.  That is what being old feels like. ::P:

Not really old school, but I do have a lot of figures that have been in the "Maybe some day" pile for at least 20 years.

 

 Especially shame-making are a pile of Masai:

I've got nearly a hundred of these to get done. What is especially daunting is that EVERY MASAI SHIELD IS MEANT TO HAVE A DIFFERENT PATTERN!

Er.. yes? I think I've got a knight and horse (Partha, lead... no idea what), and there is always ol' Takky, who needs to be stripped, primed and repaired, 'cause broken leg. Poor Takky. Oh. I think I also have some draconians that need finished. And possibly parts; I think I have a Sivak short his tail, poor bugger.

 

But they're not immediately in my queue. One of these days..

Nope, not only is everything in my painting queue fairly new, the oldest unpainted minis I have are my remaining Stonehaven Dwarves and they're only 5 years old.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, December 2018 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      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 8:00 hours and 13:00 hours GMT (UK / Europe Time: some Zero Dark Thirty hour for US time zones)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... (Or Talespinner, he started it.)
      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 can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday. 
       
      December will begin ^ with such a question because the month begins on a Saturday.

      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.
