"May-be you should finish that?" Goals

Recommended Posts

Blame @Bathory for the thread title and unofficial goal for this month...

 

If you're like me, you've got a bunch of unfinished projects collecting dust. Rather than start something new, why not finish something old?

 

My goals:

Finish stone giant and these guys

Yeah, I like this. I have a pile of half painted stuff that is embarrassingly large.  Like your use of the dinner tray to hold stuff, too.

It makes it easy to put everything away with out having to pack everything away. The stuff that's active gets to stay on the tray, which then gets put on the shelf behind the wall hanging, out of sight. kind of essential for NYC apartment living.

I'm trying out a "paint a project per month" in which i spend a month, but not more than one, on a project, typically a KS's worth of miniatures. Got a fair amount of done, but I think I'll switch to "paint a project for two weeks". ^_^

I don't have to put stuff away, but my work space is so cluttered I lose stuff.  I got my tray out and collected up everything that has paint, primer or is in some stage of assembly.  Now I can see it all in one place and make decisions about what to work on next.

I blame @Bathory for everything anyway, might as well blame her for this too.

But... But what about @buglips*the*goblin? Do you really want him out of a job, with nothing to do, tons of free time?!? Is that wise???

What an interesting idea. I'm sure I've got a few dozen things that would qualify.

I started a "One project at a time" resolution a few months back.  I think I'll make sure to include some of the really old stuff in the rotation - the projects that I started, but never finished.  They'll actually get done, and it will help me keep my resolution.

Sure, I can finish something old that's been on the backburner for quite a while...  Well, portions thereof, anyways!

 

My main areas of focus for this month:

  • Finish up Wyrmgear's greenstuff additions, and get him at least covered in primer
  • Finish my Skaven Warlord for the Unrelenting Tide.  Bonus points if the Warplock Engineer and at least five of the poison wind globadiers are done too
  • Additional work on Ebonwrath.  Sure, I'd love to actually complete him, but right now my goal is to get the base coats for all three colours, and have a pattern blocked in.  Anything more than that is icing on the cake!
  • Prime, paint, and finish at least one mini for Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds - I'm thinking either the Reaver, or Toghra.  Bonus points if it's both, and double bonus points if Krokuta is finished as well.

While I'd love to have more goals than that, for the time being I definitely seem to prefer seeing a good amount of progress on one model (or a few models) than I do a whole lot of nothing (aka say, twenty minis are in progress, but every few days it still feels like not much has been done since attention has been split across so many things)

My goal is to actually start my Gencon projects at least a little. I have a staycation in June so I can be gung ho about them then, but I'd like to get some of the planning phases done at least this month.

      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.

      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!
