"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???

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.

      It’s almost February, so it’s time to think about what you want to get done. 
       
      For me:
       
      Finish at least one twelve figure unit (two would be better)
      Add something to the 1/72 scale plastic Portable Fantasy project
      Paint enough Burrows and Badgers figures to fill out a third war band and fill out the war band forms (that translates to two or three new ones...)
      Paint a standard bearer for my Ghost Archipelago crew. I have a banner design sketched (bottom one, after review by my aesthetic consultants):
       

       
      Stretch goal: Something for the proposed urban fantasy game

      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.

      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, __)

      P.S.: I've been up since 5AM last year. No wonder I'm all loopy ;) Also, Richter Belmont is amazing in Smash Bros Ultimate, so that may have contributed to this tangent.
