How to Unfreeze Paintwater? (March Hobby Goals)


Recommended Posts

Its that time of the month again! Has your Paintwater broke yet? :P What else you gonna try for this time? Go a head and post it here so we can shame you into actually doing some of it this time!

 

But seriously, Shame is a surprisingly effective motivator. Especially for improving oneself by changing for the better. But I've rambled on for far too long. Let the Goals begin!

My goals for last month were:

 

Get back to work on the French Revolution

Finish the 1/72 scale Bronze Age Libyan DBA army (a chariot and ~6 figures left)

Finish the vintage Minifigs Gondorian swordsmen I started

Paint a handful of 1/72 fantasy individuals

 

Since I am still basing the rest of the February 1/72s this morning, and got none of the rest of that finished, March’s goal is a repeat of February’s...

I expect to spend most of my free time in March in the yard or the garden.  We are doing a local paint con the first weekend, I have prepped some figs to work on but have very low expectations of actually finishing any of them in that very distracting environment.  If I get 3-4 done for the month I'll call it good.

I found out yesterday that Robert Morris Jr and I are both really close to finishing Bones3, 

he finished 1&2 before I did so if I want to finish first this time I need to pick up my game. 

 

so here is my new goal: 

10 figures from the bones 3 core set. 

Pack Turtle - for quarterly contest.  (by 20th) 

paint some cats from Cats & Catacombs KS 

 

Okay that is alot.  especially since the cats and turtle have deadlines.  Running a  cats game on April 5th

I don't know if I've painted half my Bones 1 minis. I tend to dig them out as I need/want them for whatever I'm working on at the moment rather than having tried to finish them all. 

 

Tentative goals for March

Keep painting medieval russians.

Make a list of what terrain I still want and maybe make some of it.

Force the kids to play Rangers of Shadowdeep with me.

Get all my tax paperwork done before we go on vacation. Not hobby related but this and the vacation will suck up a lot of my spare time.

A fresh month and some more goals to aim for:

  • paint CAVs - they are my main target for this month now that the first unit of Stormtroopers are done.
  • work on Stormtroopers and Scout Troopers when I get tired of painting camo on CAVs
  • build the freaking paint rack so I can get my desk more organized
  • get the last half dozen boxes emptied or stored so the paint room floor is empty
  • get table set up for diorama work in newly empty spot from previous task
  • get some assembly/priming dome on something 3D printed

Hoping to work on some conversions...got some cheap superhero minis I want to paint up, and two of them are good for Liz Sherman and Johann Krauss (planning to use one of those clear mechanical-pencil eraser protectors for his head dome).

 

Also going to take a Pathfinder Pickled Punk and the Reaper Brain-In-A-Jar and combine them into an alien Overmind!

My modest goal is to finish 4 medium sized minis, and I have a stretch goal of 8.  If I painted some during the week that would help, so far this year i have only painted on the weekends. 

 

I like the stretch goal idea. Perhaps I should start with 'Must Paints' then everything after that is like a bonus.

Almost done with the conversion mini. Added another mini to the list because Husband forgot about a crucial plot point in his game and needed another PC mini.

      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.
