Alright, with two months to go until ReaperCon, I need to get cracking on my entries. I currently have two maybe four entries for Painters, one for Open, and two for Diorama.

 

My definite Painters entries are:

Reaper 14131: Elsabeth, Necropolis Captain in purples and blues prancing through a graveyard.

Dark Sword DSM7442 Wood Elf Gooddess-Avatar Form in green among forest ruins (started in my previous WIP)

 

My maybe Painters entries are:

Kabuki's The Hunter in black and red on a simple base

Reaper 03730: Jahenna, Female Vampire, back and white study. This is a commission for a friend and I may bring it with me if I finish in time

 

My Open entry is:

Hasslefree HFX004 Gen. I will need to link her actual pictures as she is nude. I am going to be converting her into a blue fairy. I have removed her horns and will be adding fairy wings.

 

My Diorama entries are:

"The Toad Bridge" which will feature some of Dark Sword Anthropomorphics facing off against each other.

"The Hunt" featuring two Mouslings and a spider, but who is the hunter and who is the prey?

 

I have ambitious plans but unlike last year, I am not going to force myself to finish everything. I will work on what I feel like working on and if I get it done, it goes. I won't stress about trying to get everything done as I have a few finished pieces already that I can easily bring.

 

So now onto the pictures. First up is a group shot of all the models except for Gen, followed by a group shot of their bases. I have the bases on my Tablewar tray to make sure everthing fits. I did have to rethink the base for "The Toad Bridge" as the original took up half of the tray.

OOOH, COOL STUFF! It looks like you have some WONDERFUL miniatures along with the beginnings of some equally wonderful bases AND a good dollop of motivation. There is nothing quite as motivating as a deadline; at least nothing that doesn't carry a whip.

Thanks guys! Hopefully I can get them all done in time. I had a schedule and game plan for getting everything done but that got thrown out the window fairly quickly due to stuff over the last couple of months.

Ahh, "Stuff."

Fouler-upper of the best laid plans.

 

Good luck. That's a heaping plate of to-do.

We'll all be cheering you on.

It's been a while since I started this but I have been a busy bee. I have done a little here and a little there, mainly prep and base work so here we go.

 

First up the "The Toad Bridge" crew. There is a mouse ranger, rabbit mage, and cat knight facing off against a horned toad assassin, all are from Dark Sword. Except for a little gap filling, they are ready for primer.

Next are the Mouslings and spider for the "The Hunt". They are all ready for primer.

Lastly are the bases for my fairy and vampire. The fairy's is the one in the left and the vampire is the one on the right. Can't have a fairy in a graveyard.

I have trees! And a bridge. Bridges are evil, or at least this one is. The trees are not 100% done yet, I need to do at least one more layer of the putty. Once that is done, everything will be ready for primer and then I can finally get to painting.

      Like the title says this new year marks the start of my fifth year of miniature painting. Though I've managed to learn a lot both through this forum and the internet at large I still haven't learned proper layering. To anyone who has ever stumbled across any of my projects I'm sure this comes as no surprise. So armed with a Reaper gift card, obtained over the holidays, I decided it was time to finally learn layering. 

      If it wasn't clear I picked up the 2nd Learn to Paint kit.
       
      With the instructions in hand I started work on the first model (77068 Anirion the Elf Wizard). Oddly enough after four years of painting this will be the first wizard I've ever painted.
       
      Just like the first Learn to Paint kit the instructions are great. I actually got so caught up in going through the steps painting the robe that I completely forgot to take pictures. That may not sound like a compliment but believe me it is.
       
      After just an hour or so I ended the night with a very nice looking cloak. Though I must admit I didn't push the shadows or the highlights nearly hard enough it is still a great improvement over my usual results.

      It seems 2021 is to be the year of the "painting blehs", where many of us are struggling to find out just where our inspiration has wandered off to. The world seems to be going increasingly mad each passing day, so this isn't surprising. With so much uncertainty about, it's difficult to get back into painting mode with so many other things to worry over. 
      Last year I was knocked out of any steady routine for long periods of time, and it appears that for this year that may hold true as well. So how to adapt is the question here. To begin with, to recognize how I wound up with a horde of half finished minis on the table nagging at me. Simple, for the last few years I've had the tendency to bite off far more than I can chew on a regular basis. Between juggling Undead, Witch Hunters, and the Witch/Halloween army, I've put myself in a place where I'm dealing with units on a regular basis, and using pretty much the same palette on all of them. Don't get me wrong, the limited palette achieves what look I'm going for with everything and I'm still just as much in love with all of my factions as I was when I started them, but like with all things there are consequences. My habit of opening a blister of something new to try and feed the motivation also doesn't help me here.
      Humans are to a greater or lesser extent novelty seeking creatures. Although I fall into the far end of lesser, sooner or later it catches up. Also part of why I fell into the current structure is logistical, I've lost the knack of small pours, and have a horror of wasting paint, so limiting colors to what can be spread far in the case of overspill makes sense. 
      Another contributing factor is that having learned the hard way with drawing, I cannot and will not try to "force it" when it comes to artistic projects. All well and good, but it leaves me in a position where as soon as the muse decides to hide beneath the sofa, the project comes to a screeching halt whether it be painting or writing. 
      So what to do about this now? 
      Goal setting in the loosest possible sense of the word. Overall objective is to clear everything off of the table before unblistering or opening anything else. I've been doing good here, so it's just a matter of keeping this up.
      Outside of my faction projects, these are what's staring at me...

      Barbarian Mouslings...

      Viking Mouslings...

      Eastern Mouslings...

      Drangus the Duck Knight, meant as a Christmas gift two years in the running now, saving grace is that the recipient has no clue about this.

      Zombie Dragon, also meant as an unexpected gift. The snag here is that this is the first full size dragon I've ever attempted so scale got intimidating quickly and that I was having a difficult time trying to figure out what was rotted flesh and what was muscle. Gluing the wings on this early didn't do me any favors either. I have another one still in it's package that is destined for my undead army, so hopefully by tackling this one I can have an easier time when it comes up in rotation.
       
      Even here it's obvious as to how I go strongly with theme, even in my "random" minis. Since I tend to try and paint as large a batch as possible, with this the solution might be to focus on one or two, finishing them before moving on, even though my brain is going to screaming at me otherwise.

      Seemingly unrelated to each other, but I swear all these minis were drying from the sealer by 11:23pm on 12/31/2020.

      Here are....Lidless Eye's Last Minis of 2020!

      A Winter Wizard from Reaper Miniatures oh wait it's Santa, isn't it?
       

       
       
      To back him up, some friendly Reindeer to back him up.

      Wait, I'm being informed they're actually Grashrak's Despoilers from Warhammer: Underworlds


       
       

       

       
       

       

       
       

       
       

       
      The last bit of their native habitat, a fallen tree (3D print from The Lost Adventures)


       
      A creepy Scarecrow Puppet familiar from Reaper Miniatures.


      Arik Axereaver, Barbarian, acquired as a bonus along with the Father Christmas.  His head seems to reflect everything in the lightbox.



      And doing what we all should from the last year, the Fleeing Halfling from Warploque Miniatures.  He must know Johann.

      So some times you just done get things finished with the deadline you have imposed on yourself and this elf was one of those self-imposed deadlines. I wanted to have her done by Christmas, but just got too busy with other miniatures and other things.  I got this figure if I recall last Christmas when I won her with some others on a Reaper Christmas Giveaway on Twitch.  
       
      Here she is:
       

       
      Always thought she was a cute little figure.  The other ones I want but they haven't sold them for a few Christmasses now are the two elves, naughty and nice.  But one of these days I'm sure they will pop up again.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy, happy belated Christmas and New Year!
