  1. January goals: Finish 3 Mouselings and Snowman - done 8 zombie walkers - done 18 zombie runners - done 16 zombie walkers - deferred to February 18 zombie fatties - deferred to February 1 Infinity - sold 50 ASOIAF added 26 Effigy gnomes added Net: +46 See what I mean? Flexible. Life got wackier than normal for the 2nd half of January. No way to predict it. Roll with the punches. February goals: 4 Z:BP Gipi guest artist box survivors - done 16 zombie walkers 4 Z: BP Neal Adams guest artist box survivors 18 zombie fatties 6 Z:BP survivors, the original 6 in basic game Sell a bunch....
  2. January goals: Finish Mouslings and Snowman - done 8 zombie walkers - 75% done 18 zombie runners - 25% done 16 zombie walkers 18 zombie fatties Wrapping all those up soon will get 2022 off to a really fast start. Annual goals will not really be set because life has too much ebb and flow to lock in any sort of detailed planning. Rather than lay out X number of minis per day/week/month, or plan an arbitrary 'project' thing like "All xGAME minis by June", the best approach seems to be to just keep standing up groups of gaming pieces and working on them several times per week. When I can only spare 30 minutes or so, instead of working on groups, put a little something on a single figure, small diorama, or other display piece. In other words, focus on the process and the numbers will take care of themselves.
  3. Nativity - done, although slightly past Christmas. Santa and Mrs Claus - done, although slightly past Christmas Mouslings and Snowman - almost done by New Years Eve, but not quite. Walkers and Runners for Zombicide: Black Plague - finished 8, started but did not finish another 8. Quick review of 2021: Total of 79 miniatures painted, more than doubling 2020's total (36) and breaking the old mark of 53 set back in 2014. While I did have more time for painting in the early and late months of 2021, the boost in productivity can mainly be attributed to learning oil paints. No, I have not mastered them yet, not by a long shot. Just saying that learning the basics, some of the shortcuts, was enough to save a lot of time. Looking ahead at 2022: New Year's Weekend and since then, I finished Mouslings and Snowman, made solid progress on 8 more zombie walkers, and started another 18 zombie runners. Wrapping all those up soon will get 2022 off to a really fast start. Goals will stay fluid, life has too much ebb and flow to lock in any sort of detailed planning. Rather than lay out X number of minis per day/week/month, or plan an arbitrary 'project' thing like "All zombies by the end of January", the best approach seems to be to just keep standing up groups of gaming pieces and working on them several times per week.

  4. By Christmas Eve: Reaper Nativity Reaper Santa and Mrs Claus Reaper Mouslings and Snowman (may roll to following week, since wife wants them for her desk when she goes back to work By New Year's Eve: Walkers and Runners for Zombicide: Black Plague (long overdue, as many as I can blast thru to count as completed in 2021)
  5. With about 48 hours left, there have been some fun stretch goals unlocked and a pair of gnomes on the line for the final stretch goal.
  6. Gnomes taking up arms in defense of your flowers and shrubbery!
  7. A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work. The Gnome Guard “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden. One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection. I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]
  8. Wow, that's looking great! Guess I should start saving up for the late-year releases.
  9. Oh, NO! The big five-oh! Happy Birthday, my friend!
  10. I have a weakness for TMM elves, goblins. and Arthurian knights. And so much good stuff in RPL. My poor wallet.
  11. These were WIP for a long while at my local Paint Club, before C-19. Sat idle for a while until WFH for self and family settled and I could wet a brush again. Yes, these are benchtop phone photos, nothing special, and the base edges need cleaned up. Still, pretty happy with how they turned out. Looking forward to fielding them for Counterblast tabletop games and RPG (coming SoonTM as an officially licensed Savage Worlds setting). The main 9 and Azhro Rider are all by Bombshell Miniatures, while the 'tiny, but fierce' Andromedan is by Reaper.
  12. 10 minutes to go! Support your fellow Texan, Reaper & Dark Sword sculptor, and all around swell guy, Patrick Keith! :-)
