Same goal as last month:

Finish Mal, getting so close.

Silly me volunteering to help a different group out at work instead of taking my vacation that is building up at an alarming rate, and now of course my own work is picking back up....

I have failed.  I cleaned and assembled another mini today which is now cluttering up my paint space.

Now that I've wrapped up Blightfang, the only thing left on my painting tray is the dancing girl. So, of course, it's time to drag out some new projects, and they're all gaming related. Since my fellow players have almost all been using my minis for their characters, I've been trying to spiff up the ones they're using. Especially since a bunch of them are old and maybe... half painted? The base colors are blocked in anyway. But it's time to do better. 

So, Joda the asamar monk, Bran the human warlock, and Rin the human barbarian are all getting various levels of upgrades. Here's the plan:

  • Everyone gets new bases to match the ones I did for Thorin and Fulhoff. That'll take care of Rin. 
  • Joda is going to get a repaint. He has golden skin... I'm going to use the NMM Gold Triad for that. 
  • Bran is going to be the most work. The mini is an elf, and uses a shadow rapier, not a double bladed sword thing from 3e. So, conversion work... plus the hair is wrong. Once the base and conversion work are done, then he gets a repaint... Unless I find a mini that'll work better. 

Also coming to my tray is Reaper's Goroloth (aka Aboleth), a mini I never actually expected to paint. But... Apparently there's one we're gonna have to deal with in the next week or two, so... My inspiration is the 2e art, and I'm totally aiming for a tabletop quality paint job. 

We might also be facing fire giants in the future, so the fire giant jailer might see some attention soon too. *sigh*

I don't think my DM appreciates enough that I'm painting up big nasty monsters specifically for her to use to try to kill us.  

Aboleth finished! Well, finished to a tabletop quality for game. And that's good enough. 

New bases for Rin, Joda, and Bran complete. 

Joda got his skin repainted, and will have his robes done this weekend. 

Bran... I think I'll be ordering a better mini for him. Or making one from parts. Haven't decided yet. 

 

Added to my to do pile:

Mordheim Ogre Mercenary

Chainmail Dire Boar

Evil Fairy familiar

Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard from Bones 1

Still lots of time left in the month to make progress on your cluttered space!

I'm going to go with three for this month, even if a few might be repeats... 

 

- Finish up the sculpting putty work for Wyrmgear.  Sure, I have at least three more sessions just to get the wings how I want them, and then probably another for his horns and the backpack engine, but that's life.  Bonus points if he's primed! 

- Finish Ebonwrath.  This one is a bit ambitious, but seeing hubby work on his has definitely put a good fire for the forge, or however yo uwant to put it (aka, motivation to push towards competition).  Oh, and this includes building and finishing a base for him too, which is even more ambitious but still. 

- Finish my Skaven Warlord

- I know I said three goals, but I can't resist.. I want to work on, and finish, one of the minis for Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds too.  This should be doable as hubby and I have found a rhythm where we can play games together, play solo games, and are able to do painting too.  So we think anyways ^_^

Mid-month update for myself...

 

  • Technically have three greenstuff sessions for Wyrmgear....  One for each side of the right wing, and then one more for the head/horns and the engine area
  • Ebonwrath hasn't been touched for a few weeks...
  • Warlord hasn't been touched for a few weeks, but I'm planning on sitting down with him today.
  • I've primed one of my Gnolls, that counts right? ^_^;;;;

--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:)

 

My Progress is...

--Spring Exchange Minis are in my next set of Stuff to paint after current projects.

--DDM Guild Prizes are progressing slowly but consistantly.

--Nativity Set is part of next Set of Projects.

--Catfolk is primered and I have discription of her PC.

--Persona 5 has progressed. Beat Casino Palace and discovered the identity of the "Traitor"! Preparing to take the fight to the Ship Palace!

--Still planning on beating Final Fantasy 10-2, but decided to start fresh game for it. Got starting stuff done and am checking around before going to any Hotspots.

My main goal for June was to paint one mini.  It had been so long since I painted and I forgot how important it is to me. I lost that spark for a bit but now I found it again. I am learning that is normal.

I have been organizing my paint space and doing some light painting recently (thus my very quiet presence), mostly due to multple different family emergencies.  I have been successful in separating out some armies and figuring out an order of painting and assembly.

Start painting again. I don't really care at this point what I do, I just need to restart the creativity engine again!!

 

Actually made my goal this month!! I've applied a few basecoats to about 10 minis so far. Nothing extraordinary but every little bit helps! Hopefully I have enough time to get everything painted for ReaperCon this year.

Last day of June! I have:

  • Continued the Sphinx
  • Continued Ma'al proper
  • Stalled on Mini Ma'al
  • Finished 1 1/2 of the extra 4 projects I added

So I think it's been a pretty productive month. Whatever I didn't finish will roll over to next month and I'm sure there will be some new things as well.

      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

      Ok so early May kinda train-wrecked for me and my family so I really haven't had much time to write it up until now, apologies for the delay.

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72577-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2017-chatterquestions/
      All the information you need should be here.

      Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

      May and June 2017

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Beware the Batman. In May 2014, this series first aired on Adult Swim. Paint a character you want to resemble a hero or villain from the series. Characters in the series may be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beware_the_Batman

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Spirit of Summer. No, no the mini, but you can do that if you wish. Paint a mini that embodies the spirit of summer to you. It can be a character in certain colors, a water scene, or (a personal favorite) a campfire.

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Roulette Triad.
      I used a highly scientific method of shooting rubber bands at the wall above my paint racks and seeing where it falls to choose three colors. All three must be used, and only these three (If you have specific colors: Great! if not, reasonable approximations are allowed, please ask if you have a question)
      Clear Yellow
      Carrot Top Red
      Gem Purple

      Good luck
