For January, I need to work on the French Revolution, and I’d like to work on my retro-Middle Earth project, and the 1/72 scale Portable Fantasy project.  Three is really already too many to use the word “concentrate”, but that’s what I feel like doing now.  By the 31st it will probably change...

It’s mid-month check in time.


I haven’t done anything with the French Revolution, but I have done 32 retro-Middle Earth goblins and orcs, and ~20 1/72 scale figures for Bronze Age or Fantasy, with basing in process on some of the latter. If I stopped for the month today, it would still be a pretty decent month.

My goal for 2020 is to get at least one minis game unit, one terrain piece and one RPG related mini painted each month.  For January, the RPG mini is a Pegasus conversion I'm doing using 77029 Silverhorn Unicorn and the wings from 77576 Female Sphinx. Haven't decided on the unit or terrain piece yet. 

I'm progressing nicely this month, which is surprising. Probably because it's too cold to want to go anywhere. 

I got my minis game unit done:



And my terrain piece done:

Now all I need to do for January is finish an RPG related mini.   One would think that a single mini would be easy, especially when I have a druid in the party who likes to shape shift a lot, but I can't seem to stay focused on any one mini.  I think I've started 8 this month.

So this is for January 2020 (yes I just pulled across what I was supposed to do in December), can't think about the whole year just yet, but I'll get there.


Finish the two mini's I was supposed to finish before December started (I did these, I can't remember when but it must have been before today)

1. Eyebeast

2. Dark Iron Dwarf Pounder


Christmas Ones (Somehow I added to this list)

1. Father Christmas

2. Christmas Fairies

3. Santa Mousling and Helper


The partway through and I'm sick of it and want it off my desk mini's

1. Twin Sorcerers - One Red, One Green Finished these two off today!

2. Were-crocodile

3. Baron Blacktree

4. Studious Sophie

5. Chibi Paladin (lots of progress)

6. Half Orc Mage


Chibi Skeleton (I finger painted!)

Finish my WarGods Amazon warband for Cancon (kind of have to do this as it is on 26 Jan)



Assuming I get that done I'll try and get started on something else!

And it's DONE...well, done enough that I'm not going to look at them again for a while.


So now I've achieved my goal for the month I can take a few days off....and tidy up my office (which I've been working on today, it now looks like even more of a mess even though some stuff has actually been put away!)


Plan for the rest of 2020 is to do more painting than I did in 2019, which shouldn't be hard as I've already equalled my efforts for 2019! To be more specific, I'm planning to make some hobby time every week, which may be painting, may be assembling models and it may be tidying my office.


I'm also planning on getting my online warband builder for WarGods finished (next month's hobby goal) which is entirely driven by the fact the Olympus book is finally due for release and I've been 'working' on it for 14 months...finally got the primary functionality in place, just have to do the rest!

So, when I headed out this morning, I left glue drying on three bases of Bronze Age Libyans and a little demon (Bones Hordeling), and I have every expectation of spraying them with the final varnish coat this evening and therefore logging them as a January accomplishment. 



That should bring me to 79 figures for the month; 44 vintage Minifigs orcs and goblins, 33 Bronze Age Libyans and Egyptians in 1/72, and 2 Bones Hordelings as 1/72 Portable Fantasy demons. That would make it the best month in a while..in fact it’s pushing toward half of 2019’s overall output. So I won’t expect to do it again next month, when I really need to get cracking on 40mm French Revolution figures.

      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.
