Since things have settled a bit and I actually have a paint area set up (well, mostly), time for some goals!

  • get my paints sorted so I can find the colours I want (not just what is on top of the box)
  • paint a Battletech Griffin
  • work on my CAV:SO Terrans
  • at least prep some of my Polyversal forces
  • get all the upgrades done to my Ender 3 and get back to 3D printing

Mwa ha ha, was planning on bringing out various red paints... 


- finish assembly of CAVs, prime, and lets get sole of them blocked in for colours! 

- something something dragon. 

- work on Skaven, like... Assemble a bunch! 

- build more bases for said Skaven! 

- work on group WIP CAV! 

- start work on one of my Catachans Sentinels. 


Probably other stuff too, but that's top of my head stuff.

My long term goals for 2019:

  Paint all the figures in the annual box ( I am down to 5)

  Continue my current Rangers of Shadow Deep campaign and perhaps work on two mini campaigns

  Paint three entries for miniature painting competitions this year. It has increased to five. (4 down)

  Run a Call of Cthulhu game for my roleplaying group

  Paint character minis for all the players in my D&D group. (on track with five)

1. get good photos of everything

2. put several months worth of painted figs away in storage boxes

3. prep some Bones to mess around with at Reapercon

4. finish up a few half painted figures from last month

5. repeat

Get 6 matching wood plinths for "" 


More Bones 3 core  (5?)

I went through my box this afternoon.  

Since I'm trying to paint it all, it is about coming up with fun ways to paint each figure, rather than finding fun ones to paint. 


wereBat ( but since I don't need that, mine will be painted as a  cracked stone gargoyle)  (primed) 
Tortures rack (wash/drybrush/detail) 

wolf (possibly the wolf zombie from graveyard) W/DB/De

girl in dress (before my spawn claim it) 

savage world guy (in pinstripes!)   - which will soon to known as " F'n Stripes"  - needs cleanup



Stonehaven halfling Psion - based 

Dreadmere villager with bag&axe

Have finished my orc army, which meant painting 48 figures in July. This month would like to start on my female halfling barbarian army, from TT Combat. It will include the two Reaper female frost giants, and some female humans as well. Ideally, would get that done by end of September.

Finally broke down and ordered some Crooked Dice stuff, so that's my goal this month. Three plausibly post-apocalyptic people, one Squid Man, a mad scientist (biology), a violent schoolgirl, a henchwoman, and a dapper rat-man. Sculpts are incredibly crisp, and I'm getting to use an airbrush!

      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.

      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.
