July:

  • Mail off mini swap this week!
  • Spend time with nieces!
  • --- Play Stuffed Fables
  • --- Get supplies together and paint with them
  • Finish fire giants from Bones 3
  • Work on Ma'al (including figuring out the best way to paint the heads without attaching them and filling gaps) (buy more green stuff)

 

-Mailed off mini and it was received! They liked it! So relieved.

-Played Stuffed Fables and painted.

--BONUS: Taught girls to play D&D!

 

Haven't done anything else.

 

Oh, I should probably finish this Naga I started with them too. Not much left to do so that should be easy.

I have only painted twice this month.  At the end of May, I had a nasty fall just 5 minutes before going to the airport to pick up my parents to take them on a week round to the black hills.  I bruised up my knee really bad, but luckily no joint damage. This was then aggravated going on a 12 hour roadtrip to the Black Hills, me hobbling around for a week on the leg there, the trip home, and also by me being on blood thinners.  Since then I have spent pretty much every moment at home on the couch with my leg up, the knee is still a bit blue.  Compression socks and a knee brace is keeping most of the swelling down now.

 

So my paint plan is shot for July, maybe August will be better.

Half month update. I've been working entirely on Full Thrust stuff in my hobby time and had more than expected because of bad weather. 

 

Finished

Condensed the rules we'll use into 2 and a half pages of reference sheet.

Downloaded and updated tons of ship SSDs (stats/gameplay sheets) from the Star Ranger website.

Made SSDs in the same style as the Star Ranger ones of all the ships in Fleet Book 1. 

All but 3 ships of destroyer class and larger painted with most on bases for both fleets.

All Red Fleet ships converted and at least partially painted except fighters.

All Green Fleet ships except 2 converted.

 

When finished each fleet will have

6+ fighters. Still not sure how many to paint or how I want to base them.

4 scout boats

4 corvettes

3 frigates

6 destroyers (4 of one type, 2 of another)

3 cruisers (want 2 light and 2 heavy on top of this but may have to sculpt them from scratch)

2 battlecruisers

2 battleships

1 dreadnought

1 heavy carrier (would also like 1 escort and 1 light carrier but would have to scratch build them too)

 

So 26 ships and ? fighters nearing completion with hopes of making another 6 for each fleet.

Not a lot of hobby time this month but did get a lot done on this. Everything is finished except fighters and the extra cruisers. I've painted some fighters but still haven't decided how many I want.

Somehow got talked into painting ~8 minis before the 22nd.

  • Male vampire
  • Female vampire
  • Other female vampire?
  • All 3 bedeviled minis from B4 core set.
  • Both rulers of hell

 

SO. The only things I did not do this month were the Fire Giants, other female vampire, and 1 of the bedeviled minis because it was way too bent to deal with at the time.

So I will start off with the goal of picking up where I left off in June, working on the 40mm French Revolution project.

 

6 British light dragoons (in progress, still filing the flash and assembling things)

12 French infantry  (one figure converted/assembled; need to decide on the look for the other 11)

4 French gunners 

 

However far down that list I get, I also need to finish up a third Oathsworn warband for Burrows and Badgers to be run at Gencon. My brother is growing frustrated with my digressions, and I know that they would almost paint themselves if I just got started. ::P:

 

I have also been playing with my existing large project of 40mm Prince August semi-flat 18th century figures recently, and have two small units on the workbench for that, a 12-man militia company, and a 6-man artillery crew. I actually added paint to the militia last month, but didn’t get close to finishing any of them. A game with that project is on the schedule for today, which has a tendency to affect the inspiration environment.

 

 

Oh boy, was July a bust...I did finish up the needed Burrows and Badgers figures, and did some prep work on some 40mm semi-flats, but pieces of dragoons are still strewn about my desk.

It is far too hot here in Arizona, so staying inside in AC and painting minis seems like a really good option.  :poke:

 

So:

- Continue the ongoing commission.  My client eventually wants *all* the WizKids/Nolzur's player characters painted. 

- Keep playing with clay. It's messy but fun, and a couple of things I tried actually came out sorta the way I wanted.  Sorta.

- The next dragon in the queue. It's the Ral Partha Red Dragon of Krynn.  I may actually try to do a WIP on it, just because it's such a large and daunting project, and one I've contemplated for quite a while.

 

 

 

Did continue the ongoing commission successfully.  Now we are on to villains!

Did play with clay and got some things to turn out reasonably well.

Did not get the Red Dragon started, but I did paint up several other figures, as well as the ork boyz vehicle. Does the fairy dragon count as a dragon...?  ;-)
