Painting During the Pandemic 2022: November's New Knick-knacks


Recommended Posts

For the rest of the year I plan to whittle down the backlog

 

My goals for November are:

  •  Paint a game token for Marvel United
  •  Paint this month's Mithril miniature
  •  Paint at least two figures from the annual box
  •  Paint this month's terrain piece

 

    buckyball

 

Hobby goals for 2022

     Painting one piece of terrain each month [ 11 so far]

     Painting the 17 miniatures in my annual box and finish the one from last year [ 13 so far]

     Painting  one game token each month [ 12 so far]

     Painting one Mithril miniature each month [ 11 so far]

     Use up my remaining clear acrylic bases, which will give me a reason to order more

As a continuation from October, my goal is to finish some Genestealer Cult models, and maybe start some more.

 

And maybe dig a couple models out of the bucket o' shame and work on them as Christmas presents for Strawbonnet 1 and Strawcap.

It's good to be back! I spent much of October making and decorating some space terrain and working to afford a big backlog of stuff. Feast or famine, you know how it goes.

Need to post:
-Space fueling station
-Space repair ship
-Space restaurant 
-Spooky Obsidian Crypt

Need to photograph:
-Horrid Clowns
-Plant Things
-Wicker Man and Witch
-Claw Devil and Leech Guy
-Space Mechanics
-Appliances
-Civic Building terrain

Need to paint:
-Space Zombies 
-Retro Computers and Space Furniture
-Assorted aliens and robots
-Pulp fellas and ladies (including homemaker, detectives, motorcycle cops, and some Innsmouth citizens)
-Drill Tank

I expect some of this will take well into December, but the semester should be easing up for me.

Overall gameplan for this month pretty much boils down to the following... 

- Break in wet palette (and new art desk) 

- paint some Termagaunts (in oils) 

- break in my watercolour pencils

- continue working on the Zaku 1 Sniper (and maybe update my thread on it too, eep)

Things really got busy in October but I painted ~8 figures, and started prepping a large box of sci-fi terrain.  For November I am continuing with the terrain, making it my focus for the rest of the year.

I won't set a goal, i just recently started painting again after a slump.

But I would like to finish at least one or two minis this month.

 

There's a lot on my desk and I have plenty ideas fore future projects but real life is bothering me at the moment.

As a result I have to really push myself to paint.

I just finished a mini again, my mood is slowly improving, so I hope to get more productive soon.

I'm really keen to nail down a project or two before end of the year. I keep getting them 80% done then wandering off. Better than getting them 20% done, but still... 

 

I want to expand out some stargrave crews into a 'force' with a vehicle and some artillery. 

I've got a bunch of 10mm fantasy to paint. 

I primed the minis from the Crooked Dice Lunar kickstarter and don't want them looking at me. 

Then finally I was slowly buying and painting, buying and painting some dark ages welsh from Footsore Miniatures. 

 

Will see where I get to!

My only goal this month is to not have a hobby meltdown and pack everything away again.

 

Everything else is just a bonus.

 

Unfortunately, I'm mostly packed away again.

I've left a bit out, so I can do some painting when I feel up to it, but I don't expect to finish anything for a long time.

I did get some work done on the Genestealer Cult, but did not get anything finished.  The last part of November just kind of didn't want to work with me.
