April showers bring May...be painted minis (April Hobby Goals)

Recommended Posts

April! 

 

1. Next four minis for ongoing commission

2. Finish minis for grandsons - wizard, barbarian and warrior still to paint

3. Keep on working on dragons.  That fire dragon I started back in January is not happy about being left on the table.  And you know how cranky dragons can be if they are ignored!

Yup.  Mine got so angry it drank an entire brewery's worth of ale, then promptly fell over (aka the blu-tac let go of Ebonwrath's feet...)

yes all my other figures are content to wait for me to finish them.  dragons get cranky and reproachful.

Decided to start this months thread myself. Still have a couple weeks or more before getting back into full working mode on the farm so hoping to finish off a few things.

 

Goals

Finish a dozen Frostgrave girls that are partly painted.

Paint a dozen Frostgrave cultists.

Finish everything I need for Rangers of Shadowdeep. 2 giant snakes, some more zombies, make a lot of walls and finally try making some gaming mats out of canvas.

Do whatever my butterfly attention span grabs onto at the moment.

 

Not quite mid month but figured I'd do an update anyhow. I've been chugging along at good speed and now with Bones 4 here I've got more to do.

 

Finished

Walls, walls and more walls. I've done about 14' of 2" high walls. Still want a few more for variety but think I have the minimum done now.

 

Goals 

 

#1 focus is on our Shadowdeep games. For that I need;

3 ghouls partially painted

3 skeleton knights partially painted

3 bats and the gargoyle/column toppers for if I need more bats

3 giant snakes, 1 partially painted

Darkroot plant (Bones carnivorous plant) partially painted

5+ darkroot vines. I'm sculpting these myself and have finished 1 and not started the others.

Gaming mat. I've painted a 3' chunk of canvas with 3 different colours of left over paint as an experiment. It is drying incredibly slow because I've got the heat turned way down in the house where I'm working on it. Hoping that tomorrow it'll be dry enough to move to my hobby room and start painting some details on it. Or at least cover the sky blue and white patches with something more suitable for city/dungeon.

Really would like to finish this within a week. Seeing as half of it is already partially painted I have a chance

 

#2 priority is more Frostgrave stuff

Ruined temple from Bones 4

Ruined doorway. May try to make some more walls matching it in style

Keep painting the girls and cultists

 

Way to many partially painted things but they'll finish up quick as I focus on them.

Half month update because I'v been working like a maniac on things lately. Not getting much real work done but the hobbying has been booming.

 

Finished

3 ghouls

3 skeleton knights 

3 bats

6 gargoyle/column toppers 

2 giant snakes

2 giant leeches

Ruined temple from Bones 4

Ruined doorway from Bones 4

Darkroot plant (Bones carnivorous plant). Needs a base 

5 darkroot vines, sculpted by myself. Just need sand/flock on the base

3 wolves of different varieties, frost, giant and whatever the 6 legged thing from Dreadmere is.

 

Worked on

Gaming mat - it went from fugly to passible now. Just hit it with a hopefully last light spray of Specklestone paint for a dry steppe type look. Lots of teething problems with it but if I do more I think I can do them much quicker and easier. Gonna try a small one just with spray paints to decide if I really want to mess with more difficult version again.

Little bit of paint put on the Frostgrave girls. All 12 remaining have some paint on them.

Werebear and werewolf - need these for another Rangers of Shadowdeep mission

Rowboat from Dreadmere also for that Shadowdeep mission.

~12" Pond for the rowboat to float on.

 

Not bad for less than a week even if a bunch of it was already half done. Speed painting at it's fastest on some of it.

Oh goodness, how strongly I relate to that.

Man, March was terrible for hobbying here. Gotta get back to it and finish off several projects!

Wasn't it? Where did the last few weeks go?!

 

I was supposed to finish sculpting a mini and finish basing Ma'al. I'll be finishing that mini by the end of this week, and I took a break on Ma'al's basing because I couldn't figure out what to do next. :lol:

Crosswire is very nearly done, and there's been progress on the Mouslings. Xorns still need a plan for a skin pattern.
Also got to do some work with GreenStuffWorld rollers!
