Pretty much the same as last month.

 

 

That said, one of my coworkers was talking about starting a DnD group.  If it happens and they use minis I'll look into painting a PC for myself.  Given I have 20 20s of minis in Bones and another 20 20s of metal I should be able to find something...

I’ve got a carryover goal of painting six lizardmen (Sleestaks) from Interloper Miniatures this month, and a continuation of my effort to get a few Dragon Rampant war bands ready using using vintage Minifigs Mythical Earth figures. This month’s goal would be to be able to field an orc war band (Misty Mountains, Battle of the Five Armies) without humans or Ringwraiths. That’s going to take about thirty figures, but most of them will be easy to paint. My stretch goal is to actually play a game with the first two completed bands.

 

Other than that, I am supposed to be taking armies/figures from the Portable Fantasy Campaign on the road in May and later in the summer, so I would like to get back to painting these 1/72 scale plastics. The greatest immediate need is for some mounted knights. (So, of course, what I actually have ready to paint is foot knights and crossbowmen...)

 

If I have to break discipline, there are various vintage SF and fantasy figures ready to go, and the ongoing Ghost Archipelago campaign could use more stuff.

So which catch your eye? I’m so far behind that I only got a sampler, minotaur, firbolg, tiefling mage, and the mounted and foot halfling, and, of those, the tiefling is calling...

I didn't get anywhere near as much as I originally wanted to get done in March, but that's life.  It was nice to get out of the house for more than work and picking up groceries! ::D:

 

From Feb/March that I'm planning on doing this month...

  • Decide on a colour scheme for my Catachans, clean up at least ten of them, and get started on their painting (this is much easier now that I have a dedicated area that's being finalized today, and has a LOT more space)
  • Clean up a squad of 8 Tau Fire Warriors and finalize their initial painting
  • Create an inventory spreadsheet of my various miniatures so I can track what I have (I really want to do this, and have started on some of it as it will let me know a bunch of things)
  • Paint (or hobby) every day! 
  • Assemble remainder of my pewter Skaven from the 25th anniversary boxed army (only 10 5 poison wind globadiers remain ^_^ )
  • Assemble the remainder of my Rat Ogres
  • Convert Catachans, Skaven, and Tau to stamped/rolled bases.  Thinking 6x 60mm and 10x 25mm for Catachans, 30x 25mm and at least 5x 40mm for Skaven, and then 16x 25mm and at least 6x 40mm for the Tau.
  • Build up base for my Skaven Warlord
  • Build up and finalize base for my Reaver of Kargir, and Toghra (for Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds army)
  • Start painting at least one of the minis in my Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds army Krokuta is primed, as are Djiro and Kogo
  • Get base coat for my Ebonwrath random rainbow dragon - for now, goal is to just get the tan finalized as to where it will be

For Q2...

  • Work out where secondary and highlight colours will be on my Ebonwrath random rainbow dragon
  • Start bases for my Ebonwrath, as well as hubby's
  • Organize bits boxes (I have more than I realized, so this might take a while)

For 2018...

  • Pick up some CAV miniatures (BIG. STOMPY. MECHS!)
  • Pick up some Heavy Gear miniatures (I've wanted some for ages)
  • Order things from Secret Weapon...  Probably the washes (5-6, although all 30 wouldn't hurt), at least wave 1 of the weathering acrylics (but all would be useful), weathering pigment set, and of course more bases

March was a total miss for me on the hobby end. It's been about a year and a hlf since I did nothing for that long. The only things I did was take a few pics and show a couple of people that used to play with me that I'm still doing the mini thing. So my goal for April is to paint anything. Got some partly painted goblins on the table and the elf catapult that Kristoff65 designed and printed. Need to assemble and paint it as well as modding crew from GW plastic High Elf spearmen.

my goal for April is to avoid painting things.

I will probably fail.  

I'm supposed to be writing 1500 words a day and then editing at least a pair of short stories. 

 

Female centaur (in progress) 

Dung Beetle Knight's Ball of Dung

one GW Age of Sigmar Liberator 

 

Exception : 

Anything painted at the weekend NNM workshop with Alfanso Giraldes 

- probably a bust and the GW figure above.

April goals:

  • Take Minivember photos and put up a blog/show off post. (Why the elf I haven't done this already is beyond me.)
  • Order paint to:
    • Paint Isabeau Laroche
    • Paint Mini Ma'al
  • Start painting Isabeau
  • Start painting Mini Ma'al
  • Add new core paints to swatch book that is currently completed.
  • Start prepping the second swatch book for my other lines of paints (HD, Bones, other companies).
  • Color scheme the Shadows of Brimstone minis that don't have painting guides with them.
  • Start painting SoB.

I /think/ that's all I need to do start doing this month, I expect some of it to carry over to next month. I'll be super surprised with myself if it doesn't.

I was a bit slow last month.  I lost a week to a cold, and I ran a bunch of D&D games at my local library.  This month, though, I'm gonna crush it!  Until I have to start doing yard work...

 

22 Projects left on my shelf of shame!

Plus I would like to finish all these before Bones IV arrives... and I am still working on Bones I. Its only been how many years?

Heading to the April meeting of my painting club this weekend. First time I've attended in months!

 

I got my glasses prescription updated (new specs on the way), so hopefully I will be able to see what I'm doing a little better. I also auctioned off a bunch of Bones I was never going to get to, and now I'm going to try and focus on the stuff I really want to paint and/or finish. 

 

So for this weekend:

  • A couple of Bones bugbears that have languished forever. 
  • Assemble my Bones Viridius

I am also putting some of the auction money toward building a new gaming table. I'm going to insert an LED screen flush into the surface for projecting maps, etc. via Roll20. So that's on my list, too! Once the table is set up, I'll be able to re-organize the gaming and painting area a little better to make it easier to work on things.

b) continue to do my 15mm Neo-soviet force at least get 4 more vehicles done (and update my thread)

 

c) finish off the 4 10mm damaged buildings I'm working on (and update my thread)

 

possible other bits I might try & get in

 

d) finish some 15mm squid men cultist that I've undercoated ages ago

 

e) get  a few more bretonnians done this time some spearmen & Halberdiers, undercoated just need to start them

 

f) start my Warzone Dark Eden force off & maybe some more cybertronic these are the old Metal ones not the newer plastic ones.

 

g) my KSII Cav forces will arrive sometime this month so will decide which army to paint and possible paint/camo schemes to do these

      August Hobby Goals Go!

      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!
