For the current month:

  • Finish exchange mini - possible this weekend if I work on it.
  • The obligatory clean paint area.  This time around though its mostly put away paints I'm done with and get out what I need for the next project.
  • Speaking of which, pull mini from shelf of shame and get back to work on it.

I don't have a current track on my board (not going into the basement again tonight), but I have actual proof that I am working on things.  These came out in late August, and this is where I am at with them right now.  Weapons are all magnetized, and interchangeable between models.   (The knights are partially assembled as well, and I have made all of the buildings from the set.)  Glad I got these to this point (lots of armor still missing, along with heads and some other details), because I have two smaller versions arriving tomorrow.

And done... ish.  I tried out a bit of an experiment on the base.  Once it is set and there is no more color shift I'll probably have to touch it up a bit, but the mini itself is done.

My monthly goal is to set up my paint station again and PAINT A THING.

 

Humble goals, I admit.

 

got to start somewhere. After reapercon last year I got sidetracked and didnt pick up a brush for 10 months... NOT THIS TIME!

Carryover from August - finish stripping and repainting the two ice dragon hatchlings.

 

Continuing goal - next team for the commission I'm working on.  Possibly Roller Derby girls or Goths.

 

Dragons - next up is an old Ral Partha wyvern that I started basing over the weekend.  I would also like to get back to the Citadel dragon I had problems with in July.  My friend Chaoswarlord pinned the broken horn on him for me today.  I am letting it dry overnight, and then will need to do some ApoxieSculp-ing to fill in the gap.Hopefully I will get him done by the end of September.

 

I did get the ice dragon hatchlings stripped.  They are waiting to be repainted.  But I finished the set of 7 Roller Derby girls and will deliver them tomorrow.  Now I can go on to the wyvern.

Progress updates:

  • Need to finish Marth (sadly he did not make it to the competition but neither did I so that worked out?)
  • Frost Giant Queen needs to be started, I'd like to enter her in Reaper's Giant FB contest due on Halloween.
  • Beastman, this turned out to not be needed but it is needed next Sunday (9/9/18)
  • Ma'al is on the shelf for now.
  • Mini Ma'al also on the shelf.
  • Brand is still WIP.
  • Kassandra is on the shelf.
  • SoB wave 2 painting has been pushed to November since I think I can get it all done during Minivember. (Or other thing that I'm planning if it pans out before October 1st.)
  • Isabeau is on the shelf.
  • Shubby is also on the shelf.

So lots of shelved things from last month but I have rough timelines for when I need some things. Most of the larger shelved things will probably be there for a while along side my 3 fire giants I need to finish. 

 

NEW PROJECTS (Things I want to start that aren't listed above):

  • October Advent Calendar, this is for next year but if I can get it done before October starts I'll do a new thing this year instead of Minivember.

For SEPTEMBER:

  • Finish Marth
  • Start FrGQ
  • Finish Brand
  • Decide between Minivember or new thing this year.
  • Start Advent Calendar
  • Purchase an Angel of Shadows for Reaper's quarterly painting contest of FB.

 

-Finished Marth

-Finished Brand

-Started Advent Calendar

-Bought Angel of Shadows

 

Still planning out the FrGQ. Still working on calendar, have almost all of the materials for it. Still deciding between Minivember and All Minis Eve. That will most likely be determined by if I finish said calendar.

Hero Forge samples (2)

Some 1/72 scale stands for my portable fantasy campaign; I have 6 left from my August business trip that don't evenly make a stand, so I have primed the rest of those stands.

A Burrows and Badgers figure or two?

 

Still time left; this may not turn out to be too bad a month after all.  I got the Hero Forge samples painted, have finished up two stands of 1/72 scale plastics plus a couple of single figures, and have finished two B&B figures so far, with a third one being based, so those were my goals. :huh: Huh.

Sweet! Delivered the Roller Derby Girls last Friday.  Got the ice hatchlings finished the other night, and just finished the wyvern!  And there's still another week for another project!

This board is now a bit out of date, but if nothing else, I am working on stuff!  Averaging at least 40 minutes per day that I am tracking, probably a bit more, since I suspect that I forgot a few, and I ignore transition time, or taking a few extra minutes to finish gluing something or a quick check.  I plan on taking some pics at the end of the month with everything that I worked on.

Now that things are cooling down, it's a LOT easier to actually sit down and paint...  That and my paints don't have the annoying habit of drying out halfway through being used in the wells of my dry palette...

 

Old goals:

- Finish the sculpting on Wyrmgear

- Continue working on Reaver of Kargir.  Bonus: Finish this mini

- Continue working on Tanith.  Bonus: Finish this mini

- Continue working on my Skaven Warlord.

- Swap one squad in my Skaven army over to my new rolled bases

- Assemble one squad of Skaven Night Runners

 

New goals:

- Set up and learn how to use wet palette (and of course finding a spot to put it o_O)

- Get back into habit of painting/hobbying every day, even if it's just twenty or thirty minutes, cleaning mold lines on minis, or assembling minis

- Assemble Wyrmgear, and get him slathered up in Grey Liner (aka primed)!

- Fill gaps in my Minotaur Demon Lord, and then prime him with quite possibly Brown Liner

- Technically a new goal since I haven't set it for a while: Resume work on Ebonwrath, my rainbow dragon challenge dragon.

- Work out basic colour plans for my Skaven Poison Wind Globadiers

Some progress on things...

  • Wyrmgear will see two more sculpting sessions before he's put back together I figure...  One to bulk him out somewhat, and the second to add the details (that way I'm not rushing to do both at the same time).  Still hoping for assembly and grey liner primer for this month
  • Reaver of Kargir has seen a decent amount of progress, and Krokuta has seen some as well
  • Skaven Wardlord?  DONE.  Just need to do final pics at some point and a Show off thread.
  • Hoping to do the assembly on the Night Runners this weekend, on the new bases.  Bonus objective, getting my Plague Censer Bearers onto new bases as well (I ~think~ I have some done up for them already)
  • Poison Wind Globadier paint scheme has been figured out with tests on two minis, other eight will be started soon after the initial two are finished, hopefully this month
  • Minotaur Demon Lord is a maybe, but I still want to try and get his gaps filled
  • I'd like to do work on Ebonwrath, but we'll see if it happens.  With me picking up DDS2 and seriously contemplating going for having people coax me into doing the 7-Day Challenge being a prospect in the near future quite likely all of five weeks from now...  Ebonwrath might not see the attention he craves, doubly so since I'm using this time to "burn through" a good chunk of what's currently on the desk.

I've worked a lot more on Frostgrave since my last update, as well as WWX and Bolt Action.  Very little painting, to be honest - most everything thing month is assembly, though I plan on priming everything Sunday afternoon, weather permitting.  October may well be more of the same - I am trying to clear some of the backlog of long-ignored projects, and assembly is the first step.
