Same thing as last month.  Basically, I have lots of projects that I want to work on, and need to just get in the habit of grinding away at the lead mountain a little at a time.  I managed just over 20 hours of hobby time last month, and I hope to hit close to 30 hours this month.  I am not worried about finishing any one particular model, just getting down to the basement and working on things.  (Though, if some models actually do get finished, I am perfectly happy with that result.)


ETA - in September,  I got all my Frostgrave plastics assembled, as well as almost 70 CAV models, plus another 100 or so assorted miniatures. And did some painting for 40k, Adeptus Titanicus and my 28mm Nappys. Time to clear the board and start anew!

In keeping with my 2018 goals my October goals include:

  1. Finish painting my character figure for D&D
  2. Paint the brain in a jar from Bones 3
  3. Paint another Bear's Head figure
  4. Paint another Hasslefree mini
  5. Paint this month's Mithril miniature




My 2018 hobby goals include:

  • Running a Dark Conspiracy RPG for my gaming group
  • Running a Frostgrave/Ghost Arch game at Reapercon in September (I sort of did this. I played, but it wasn't on the schedule)
  • Painting the 10 miniatures from the hasslefree kickstarter
  • Painting the 6 miniatures from the Going Native kickstarter
  • Painting the 5 miniatures from the Bear's Head kickstarter (on track with four)
  • Continue painting the Monthly Mithril Miniatures (on track with ten)
  • Reduce and limit the WIP box (formerly the shelf o' shame) to 6 figures. It currently sits at  >12

We closed on the new house last Thursday, so most of the free time in October will be taken up with moving preparations.  However, I’ve also got two business trips, so I’ll take the travel paint kit and see what I can do with a few Burrows and Badgers figures, or a couple of miscellaneous Bones for Ghost Archipelago.

I'm going to keep things somewhat minimal this month for goals....

  • Work on Unrelenting Tide (Skaven Army): I'm aiming to get that second squad of Night Runners assembled on new 25mm round bases, and also have all ten Poison Wind Globadiers painted too
  • Work on Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds: Reaver of Kargir and Krokuta are my two main focuses for painting, but I also want to get the gaps filled on my Minotaur Demon Lord
  • Work towards finishing Tanith!
  • Prepare for the oncoming apocalypse, aka 7-Day Goblin Challenge and DDS2 (which I'll more than likely be starting late in the day October 26th!)


EDIT:  Ebonwrath Rainbow dragon challenge, and Wyrmgear being fully sculpted and assembled (with a custom base!) have been moved to "overall 2018" goals in order to have more focus on a few things, instead of many.

Dangit.  Forgot that the Kings of War skirmish game, Vanguard, ships this month.  I need to either drop a project, finish a project*, or adjust my board.  But 31 projects seems like too many to work on at once.


<peanut gallery>And 30 doesn't?</peanut gallery>


* Actually, the Wild West historics are only 10 or 20 models, so it is doable.  Technically, I have fewer Arena Rex models, or Dark Age, but those will take more time, I think.

None of these got done last weekend or the one before it due to my air conditioner failing on Saturday! Well, except the BoGW stuff. So they are all on for October.

Alas, I cannot help but agree! Try finishing either the smallest first, or the one for which you have the most enthusiasm...::P:

Especially since too many months have only 30 days.  :lol:   Dark Age is probably the smallest*, but I only have a dozen or so models for the historic Wild West, so they will get done first.


* Picoarmor is technically the smallest, and actually, I could probably paint all of the picoarmor that I have in a couple of days, if I really wanted to do so.  There is only so much detail you can paint on at 6mm scale - most of it is base color, drybrush, wash.
