"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.

      Huh usually I put one of these up sooner than this. Just been busy I guess.
      Who's all going?
      How did you fair in the hotel lottery?
       
       So Sunday was event registration.
      Did you get into the events you wanted?
       
      My group did fairly well at the hotel thing this year even though we had to split the group this year. both hotels are fairly close.
      I got into most of the events I wanted. had some issues with the priority system preventing me from getting into events because it conflicted with another event that I would only be going to if I hadn't gotten into an earlier time. Yet some how it did allow me to sign up for 2 Speed paints that conflicted with other events that I got into. (and I only realized one before paying)
      Also I just a bit ago remembered that I wanted to do a Frostgrave event but they are all sold out already.

      We're still going strong! Incredible. It's been a bit, so poke me if I ask a duplicate. I've missed y'all.  
       
      The roolz:
       
      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
      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 6AM and 8AM EST
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      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 are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
      I will be posting late the night before as I won't be awake super early in the morning.

      I was at the 2018 Adepticon in Schaumburg, Illinois last month helping out at the Reaper Paint & Take tables.
       
      I took pictures of the stupendous international Crystal Brush competition entries and other minis and terrain with an eye towards the interests of the people on this forum. Also some fun cosplay and miscellaneous interest.
       
      I can't guarantee my photographs are great. I was using two cameras with very different capabilities and strengths and I am not a professional photographer. Some of the pictures use a very harsh flash because it allowed for super sharp enlargements of detail, something I thought painters here would be interested in.
       
      I didn't know which entries would win the Crystal Brush competition, and as it turns out I missed the third-place winner. I have got pictures of the first and second place winners.
       
      So to begin with, here is this year's first place entry, "Apocalypse", a diorama by Michal Pisarski.
       
       
       
      And this is the second place winner, "The Name of the Wind", a diorama by Sergio Calvo. My pictures of this are not so good, I'm afraid.
