"May-be you should finish that?" Goals

Recommended Posts

My list of things to do in May is based on getting a bunch of stuff done for the Halfling Hack’n’Slash game I am running which was supposed to be a one-shot but has somehow continued on. This looks like a lot but most of the things listed for finishing are well over halfway through.

  • Finish up Kobolds (6)
  • Finish Troll (1)
  • Finish Killer Frogs (1/2)
  • Finish up humanoid NPC’s (3)
  • Hope the weather behaves and put a sealing coat on everything destined for the gaming table. (1/2),  (got a day where I sealed everything but now the troll and the kobolds need to be sealed too.)
  • Paint up a Cobra as a Fire Snake (1)
  • Paint up some hobgoblins (2)
  • Paint up some bugbears (2)

If there is any time to spare start on some extra goblins.

Oh, I never made any May goals.  Well, I was out of town for four days on business this week and next weekend is a family reunion.  The plan is to finish or nearly finish Goremaw this weekend.  After that I'll try and fit in something small - as in a normal size 28mm.  Compared to the giant worm most Reaper minis are small.

--Start a Couple Oathsworn Heroins in Senseable Shoes 3 Minis.

--Finish the Casino Palace in Persona 5.

So updates on progress...


--Spring Exchange is on break atm. Checked with partner an they are okay with delays.

--Finalized my choices and got paint on all but one of them. Going to decide on a paint day at my FLGS on Wednesday so I can get help on the Giantess in particular.

--Started bases for several mini from Nativity set.

--Based Catfolk with Knives for Friends AL PC.

--Stuck in the Darkroom Maze section of the casino Palace.

--Decided on doing Final Fantasy 10-2 for my next Game. In chapter 1 after first Hot Spot but before second. Going for 100% Special ending, if I can. Wish me Luck:)

It's been a rough month so far, with a couple of weekends occupied by trips.  I have a unit of vintage orcs on the table that should be finished this weekend, and I did dust off a Dark Ages Norman archer at lunch yesterday and finish him.

Oh also I'd like to finish my final bits for my Dracula's America Posse (just need to put the final touches on some cowgirls and then shade/highlight the revenants), and then do at least one other posse for it. Got the Twilight Order started a bit, but I also got some Indians from Thunderbolt mountain before it closed to be Skinwalkers and it would be cool to get them going.

Most of the time I do that too. though I do have a few that went back up on the shelf when I just wasn't making progress that I liked on them and needed space until I felt like trying them again.

Update for me. Cowgirls are done, Revanents not yet, got distracted by goblins. No further progress on any Indians or Twilight Order. (due to goblins). Finished my Goblin wizard and apprentice for Frostgrave as well as what will be a thug. Just need to finish some Pathfinder goblins and the whole group will be ready. Also a random Ral Partha mini is almost done that I just started.

Oh also finished the Stone haven Gnome monk.

So I got a bunch of things to try and figure out how to take pictures of soon.

What a sassy title, I love it. :lol: 

I took a break from my break and I think I'm coming around now....


I'd like to finish converting and painting Damaris and sculpting Sora. I took too long with Sora - I paused on her so I could learn some chest anatomy and months later I'm just kinda "blegh" about her....


Maybe. Maybe she'll just.... disappear. :ph34r: I'll keep her staff though, I love that staff.


Damaris conversion is complete! I'm still painting her.


Sora.... is uh. Well, she was very old and crumbly. So I smushed her together as best I could and baked her. :lol:

If it doesn't work out (I certainly wouldn't do that for a pro piece LOL), I'll just use that staff for another Sora pose or for Mori, since they use the same weapon.

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)


Yeaaaah... Not so much got done... 

- Wyrmgear has some of the stuff done, but it will be another three sessions minimum before I finish his wings (it's easier doing just one side at a time, no having to go back and fix something because you pressed a finger into something), and maybe another session after that for additional little things (finishing up the engine and spine to wing section, his horns, and various other details I may choose to add in).  Sure, I'll be doing more work on the one side of a wing tonight, but still. ::p:

- Skaven army barely got any attention other than a group pic and some more bases... 

- Ebonwrath got more of his primary colour, as well as a bit of orange highlights here and there, so I'm counting it as some progress! ... And I kind of know where the blacks bits will be. 

- The gnolls were too busy partying (aka I spent a LOT of time gaming this month and I don't mind that fact)

Between getting a new* Switch game and going out of town yet again I didn't get much painting done in the second half of May.  Perhaps June will be better.  At least it will involve less traveling, but perhaps more gaming.


*New to Switch but actually an older game.

So not much of my original plan was completed. I got the cowgirls done, but no revenants and no planning done on my Gencon project. Three goblins painted and several more close to being done in June. Got a few Bones and metal furniture and dungeon decor done as well. Got a Dire wolf that is almost based as well. Might get him done tonight.

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





Okay, I actually managed to complete everything but the dancing girl... Go me!

      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.

      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!
