I have chosen the sorcerer Lamann to be my next victim to splash some paint on.

I got to use Reaper's Grey Primer 9299 for the first time.  I love it so much over the Vallejo Surface Primer.  The Vallejo primer seems kinda watery to me compared to the Reaper primer.  Also Vallejo's primer bubbled up on me a lot when I would use it.  This is the first of Reaper's primers that I've tried.  I have the black and the white and I hope I love them as much as this one.

I laid down a few basecoats while at a friend's place Friday and this is as far as I've gotten so far.  I used MSP Bones Oceanic Blue 9418 for his robes, MSP Bones Styx Purple 9423 for his tabards (not sure what you call them really), and MSP Woodstain Brown 9160 for the staff.

I'm planning on getting the rest of the basecoats down tomorrow.  It looks to be a busy weekend so I don't think I'll get much done then.

Thanks! I'm trying to decide what to do with the metal bits hanging off of his robes,

I'd go with copper, aged gold, or brass. Something on the yellowish side as a contrast to the blue purple. If you look on color wheel yellow is opposite of purple and orange is opposite of blue. So a dirty yellow colored metal is where my mind goes to.

That's actually where I was thinking of going.

I finally got around to slobbering some paint onto a mini!  I was actually priming a new project and decided I needed to at least do something to this poor little guy.  I've started his skin with some Bones HD Barbarian Flesh and some of the leather pieces with some Bones HD Rich Leather.

I'm trying to get back in the painting groove by getting in at least 30 minutes a day if I'm not out of the house for the weekend.

      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.

      This is a vintage mini, Grenadier Dragonman Sorcerer, I got it from a BOGW a few years ago.
       
      I will use him as a Demon Officer in my Children of the Grave army, because I think he looks a bit like a classic Demon.

      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.
