Pretty much the same as last month.

 

 

That said, one of my coworkers was talking about starting a DnD group.  If it happens and they use minis I'll look into painting a PC for myself.  Given I have 20 20s of minis in Bones and another 20 20s of metal I should be able to find something...

I’ve got a carryover goal of painting six lizardmen (Sleestaks) from Interloper Miniatures this month, and a continuation of my effort to get a few Dragon Rampant war bands ready using using vintage Minifigs Mythical Earth figures. This month’s goal would be to be able to field an orc war band (Misty Mountains, Battle of the Five Armies) without humans or Ringwraiths. That’s going to take about thirty figures, but most of them will be easy to paint. My stretch goal is to actually play a game with the first two completed bands.

 

Other than that, I am supposed to be taking armies/figures from the Portable Fantasy Campaign on the road in May and later in the summer, so I would like to get back to painting these 1/72 scale plastics. The greatest immediate need is for some mounted knights. (So, of course, what I actually have ready to paint is foot knights and crossbowmen...)

 

If I have to break discipline, there are various vintage SF and fantasy figures ready to go, and the ongoing Ghost Archipelago campaign could use more stuff.

So which catch your eye? I’m so far behind that I only got a sampler, minotaur, firbolg, tiefling mage, and the mounted and foot halfling, and, of those, the tiefling is calling...

I didn't get anywhere near as much as I originally wanted to get done in March, but that's life.  It was nice to get out of the house for more than work and picking up groceries! ::D:

 

From Feb/March that I'm planning on doing this month...

  • Decide on a colour scheme for my Catachans, clean up at least ten of them, and get started on their painting (this is much easier now that I have a dedicated area that's being finalized today, and has a LOT more space)
  • Clean up a squad of 8 Tau Fire Warriors and finalize their initial painting
  • Create an inventory spreadsheet of my various miniatures so I can track what I have (I really want to do this, and have started on some of it as it will let me know a bunch of things)
  • Paint (or hobby) every day! 
  • Assemble remainder of my pewter Skaven from the 25th anniversary boxed army (only 10 5 poison wind globadiers remain ^_^ )
  • Assemble the remainder of my Rat Ogres
  • Convert Catachans, Skaven, and Tau to stamped/rolled bases.  Thinking 6x 60mm and 10x 25mm for Catachans, 30x 25mm and at least 5x 40mm for Skaven, and then 16x 25mm and at least 6x 40mm for the Tau.
  • Build up base for my Skaven Warlord
  • Build up and finalize base for my Reaver of Kargir, and Toghra (for Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds army)
  • Start painting at least one of the minis in my Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds army Krokuta is primed, as are Djiro and Kogo
  • Get base coat for my Ebonwrath random rainbow dragon - for now, goal is to just get the tan finalized as to where it will be

For Q2...

  • Work out where secondary and highlight colours will be on my Ebonwrath random rainbow dragon
  • Start bases for my Ebonwrath, as well as hubby's
  • Organize bits boxes (I have more than I realized, so this might take a while)

For 2018...

  • Pick up some CAV miniatures (BIG. STOMPY. MECHS!)
  • Pick up some Heavy Gear miniatures (I've wanted some for ages)
  • Order things from Secret Weapon...  Probably the washes (5-6, although all 30 wouldn't hurt), at least wave 1 of the weathering acrylics (but all would be useful), weathering pigment set, and of course more bases

March was a total miss for me on the hobby end. It's been about a year and a hlf since I did nothing for that long. The only things I did was take a few pics and show a couple of people that used to play with me that I'm still doing the mini thing. So my goal for April is to paint anything. Got some partly painted goblins on the table and the elf catapult that Kristoff65 designed and printed. Need to assemble and paint it as well as modding crew from GW plastic High Elf spearmen.

my goal for April is to avoid painting things.

I will probably fail.  

I'm supposed to be writing 1500 words a day and then editing at least a pair of short stories. 

 

Female centaur (in progress) 

Dung Beetle Knight's Ball of Dung

one GW Age of Sigmar Liberator 

 

Exception : 

Anything painted at the weekend NNM workshop with Alfanso Giraldes 

- probably a bust and the GW figure above.

April goals:

  • Take Minivember photos and put up a blog/show off post. (Why the elf I haven't done this already is beyond me.)
  • Order paint to:
    • Paint Isabeau Laroche
    • Paint Mini Ma'al
  • Start painting Isabeau
  • Start painting Mini Ma'al
  • Add new core paints to swatch book that is currently completed.
  • Start prepping the second swatch book for my other lines of paints (HD, Bones, other companies).
  • Color scheme the Shadows of Brimstone minis that don't have painting guides with them.
  • Start painting SoB.

I /think/ that's all I need to do start doing this month, I expect some of it to carry over to next month. I'll be super surprised with myself if it doesn't.

I was a bit slow last month.  I lost a week to a cold, and I ran a bunch of D&D games at my local library.  This month, though, I'm gonna crush it!  Until I have to start doing yard work...

 

22 Projects left on my shelf of shame!

Plus I would like to finish all these before Bones IV arrives... and I am still working on Bones I. Its only been how many years?

Heading to the April meeting of my painting club this weekend. First time I've attended in months!

 

I got my glasses prescription updated (new specs on the way), so hopefully I will be able to see what I'm doing a little better. I also auctioned off a bunch of Bones I was never going to get to, and now I'm going to try and focus on the stuff I really want to paint and/or finish. 

 

So for this weekend:

  • A couple of Bones bugbears that have languished forever. 
  • Assemble my Bones Viridius

I am also putting some of the auction money toward building a new gaming table. I'm going to insert an LED screen flush into the surface for projecting maps, etc. via Roll20. So that's on my list, too! Once the table is set up, I'll be able to re-organize the gaming and painting area a little better to make it easier to work on things.

My march list went quite well finished my UTF Cavs just needs infantry, also did a few building and continued to make decent progress on my neo-soviet force. 

 

so my goals for April are:

 

a) finish my UTF Cav force completely only infantry to do (and update my thread)

 

b) continue to do my 15mm Neo-soviet force at least get 4 more vehicles done (and update my thread)

 

c) finish off the 4 10mm damaged buildings I'm working on (and update my thread)

 

possible other bits I might try & get in

 

d) finish some 15mm squid men cultist that I've undercoated ages ago

 

e) get  a few more bretonnians done this time some spearmen & Halberdiers, undercoated just need to start them

 

f) start my Warzone Dark Eden force off & maybe some more cybertronic these are the old Metal ones not the newer plastic ones.

 

g) my KSII Cav forces will arrive sometime this month so will decide which army to paint and possible paint/camo schemes to do these

      It's a new year! And with that come new goals. 
       
      I've got a short list but need to iron it out a bit before committing.
    • By Rob Dean
      Since it’s the 2nd of November and nobody has started this topic yet, I will...
       
      My goal this month is to finish enough Prince August home cast figures to stage a skirmish, and then to actually play it.  I came close last month, with a last minute finish on nine figures, but I’ll need several more to field my orcs and such warband.
       
      My secondary goal is to get back to painting more regularly; I started the year at a pace of ~1 tabletop-grade figure per day, but I’ll need to stick to painting if I want to end the year with a pace of half a figure per day.  I’ve been running something about that the past couple of years, which means that, if I were serious about this, I would need to focus a bit more.  For most of the rules I play, a new project would be something like two armies of twelve units each of twelve figures, or a total of about 288 figures.  If I didn’t “butterfly”, that would be about a year and a half of painting, which wouldn’t be so bad if I could actually stay focused on a single project.  The odds against that are very long, of course. I’m currently looking at three new starts  (Classical Greeks in 1/72, Franco-Prussian War in 40mm home cast using vintage molds, and generic horse and musket with imagi-nations in portable 1/72) plus three ongoing projects that could use a fair bit of work (40mm French Revolution, 1/72 scale fantasy—playable but wants two Hordes of the Things armies to fill out the campaign, about 120 figures, and 25mm vintage Tolkien fantasy—for which I undoubtedly already own more figures than will be painted) and several skirmish projects.
