Marching On: March 2018 Goals

Recommended Posts

If you work someplace sane and can take lunch, put together a travel paint kit and work on a figure or two at lunch.  The nice thing about painting is that it all adds up.

It’s the 1st, and time for more goals...

 

I want to:

 

finish my six Sleestaks

paint a couple of vintage Tolkien units

get some project planning on paper

play some games

 

And at mid-month, I’ve been making good progress on the Tolkien stuff, but I’ve only touched the Sleestaks to move them out of the way. ::P:

 

I got up to Cold Wars over the weekend, so games have been played, and the warband lists for the Tolkien project are taking shape. Looks like a good month so far. 

 

I’m about to paint some historical Dark

Ages guys. This wasn’t on my list for this month, but is a top five, so it isn’t totally out of left field.

March:

  • Take photos and post a show off of my Minivember minis (I'm way behind on this)
  • Finish putting all my paints in the paint swatch journal
  • Find more paint storage
  • Paint some things (not sure what yet)

 

Mid-month update: have not done any of these. I have made progress on the paint swatches. I did start up two new projects which I assume I'll start/finish painting this month as long as the paints I need get here before the end of the month. I started on my Mini Ma'al and then started planning out Isabeau Laroche who I'm going to paint up to look like Captain Marvel. I have both WIP's in my signature if you want to take a look at those.

Finished up the MSP core colors swatch journal. Currently working on setting up my journal for everything else I have. I got some minis linered, that counts as painting right? 

 

I need to order paint but that won't happen until this coming weekend. I spent half of my paint money on steam games. Oops.

It’s been a little slow since the snow day, but it looks like I will at least add a little group of 1/72 NPCs to the portable fantasy collection by tomorrow:

I’m basing the pilgrim; others will be part of next month when I start to reorient toward working on 1/72 in anticipation of

taking them to this year’s conventions.

A pair of townsfolk today...

Try to work on the garage kit.

 

First though, finish cleaning the paint area.  I started last night but it needs a bit more work.

My goals this month were to work on my Minifigs Mythical Earth Warbands and paint some Sleestaks.  Unfortunately, the Sleestaks are being carried over to next month, but, as displayed in these threads, I did well on the MEs, with 38 figures finished, including a unit of elves, a unit of humans, and enough singles to complete partial units of goblins, orcs and wolves (for Dragon Rampant, with units of 12 foot or 6 beasts or mounted).   I also finished up 10 early Dark Ages historicals for my Dux Bellorum war bands, a single Star Frontiers adventurer for my vintage SF project, and 3 1/72 plastic figures for my Portable Fantasy Campaign, which I need to prioritize next month, for a total of 52 figures not considering scale.

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80047-snow-day-final/

 

I also said that I wanted to play some games (i.e. miniatures games), and I was in five, including a Dux Bellorum game that was the first outing for figures I’ve been working on now since 2013. ::P:

 

Some of my project planning is making it to paper, so that wasn’t too bad either.  It’s really been a pretty good month; hope April is at least half as good...

From Feb...

  • Decide on a colour scheme for my Catachans, clean up at least ten of them, and then get started on their painting
  • Clean up a squad of 10 8 Tau Fire Warriors and finalize their initial painting
  • Finish that lost model from the Layer Up! LTPK
  • Create an inventory spreadsheet of my various miniatures so I can track what I have and all that
  • Paint (or hobby) every day!
  • Assemble the remainder of my pewter Skaven from the 25th anniversary boxed army
  • Organize bits boxes

For 2018...

  • Pick up some CAV miniatures
  • Pick up some Heavy Gear miniatures
  • Order... stuff from Secret Weapon (I'm really wanting the washes, weather acrylics, pigments, and some more bases!)

For March!

  • Start converting bases for my Catachans from basic GW ones to stamped ones.  Goal I'm shooting for is 6x 60mm, and 10x 25mm
  • Convert a unit of my Tau to stamped bases (Goal: 8)
  • Assemble the remainder of my Rat Ogres, and Rebase them onto circular bases
  • Convert at least one of my Skaven units over to 25mm circular bases (Goal: 20)
  • Finalize how I'll be setting up Wyrmgear's wings, pin them in place, and then greenstuff the various things (rebuild certain parts, seal gaps, etc)
  • Start painting at least one of the minis in my Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds army
  • Assemble a good portion of the miniatures I've picked up for my FFHH army
  • Get base coats for my rainbow dragon done, including planning of secondary and highlight colour locations (Ebonwrath)
  • Obviously get my March 2018 order in with Reaper >.>;;;;

That seems like about it, at least for now.  Might add more later!

 

Not obvious at all that hubby and I spent a good amount of time out of the house exploring the city, alongside work being busier due to drivers leaving or being on vacation, orrrr that I took a break for a bit after having spilt my water cup and almost destroying my mouse aaand headphone amplifier.

 

Some are partially done, like the Catachan, Skaven and Tau bases have been made, I just haven't worked on bringing minis over to them.

 

Others didn't happen, like an order being put in this month at Reaper, but sometimes that happens.  I might be having to hold off until May, just so a few other things are sorted out anyways.

Very meager progress on Mal this month, since I re-discovered Rift, the MMORPG.  So I have been spending a whole bunch of time playing that instead of painting.

      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
      Terraincrate Terrain/dressing WIP 1- Wizard's Study general WIP
      Wizkids pre-primed minis and more minis terrain & dressing
      Bad Squiddo Freya's Wrath 
      Folklore the Affliction minis
      GW mini WIP
      Reaper Bones minis
      77434 Yeti Chieftain
      77460 Dwarf Butcher
      77624 Altar to Dagon 77343 Goroloth 77166 Balto Burrowell 77142 Bones Blacksmith WIP Show-off
      The missing minis are yet to come... I need to find where they were stashed out of the way.
      Total count 20 (actually, __)

      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.
