Thelgar is my current project. Working through the base coats at the moment.   I'm planning on highlighting the skin up through the moss colors triad.  I haven't been able to decide what I want to do with the belt and scabbard yet. Since this is for a tabletop game I'm probably not going to get too fancy.  I'm going to repaint the front cloth with 9418 Oceanic Blue and highlight it with the 9419 Tropical Blue that's on it.  Any suggestions or comments would be more than welcome!

It's been a busy week so I haven't been able to get anything done until this morning.  Here is where he stands as of now:

I'm about to head out of town for the weekend so I won't get to work on him this weekend.  My plan is to work on all the details next week and get his axe attached and painted by at least the end of next weekend.

So that whole planning thing didn't work out at all.  I finally got some work done this weekend.  This is where he currently stands:

I'll probably hit the skin with another layer, touch up a couple of spots, then attach the axe.

So I made the mistake of attaching the axe before painting it:

I wasn't thinking about having to get in the nooks and crannies on the backside of the hands.  Getting all the way around the bracer on his left arm was a pain.  I wasn't able to get it as detailed as I would like but I made it decent enough to be on the table top.

I'll paint the fur pieces, give the wrapping a dirty brown wash and highlight, do some highlighting on the bracers and bracelet, then I think I'll be done with him.  I didn't realize the block on the tail end of the axe was supposed to be removed until I was looking at some pics in the Inspiration Gallery.  I think it makes a good counter weight though.  I think I'll get another one of these at some point and give it another go.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
