First I will paint some more walls and a ceiling in the hallway.


Then I will probably want to order and assemble a new display cabinet, maybe a cupboard as well.


I hope to be able to resume work again, preferably from home.


If possible I would love to hobby again and at least work on some minis.


Not sure if it counts, but I did glue a few parts of minis that fell apart during the move.

Foolish goals: 

paint 10 from Bones 3, core set 

Dragon (possibly wizkids brass?) 


Figure out how to paint during lockdown.  The dinning room where my paint desk sits is now a crowded location. 

The basement has been claimed as a weight lifting / exercising room, so it may not be any better. 


I have things that would would be harder, and improve my skills; like a bust, or finish the "Lizardmen in the style" of (3 left) or Kingdom death critter. 

but mostly I want to paint quick and dirty.

Here at the start of the month, my painting space isn’t in too bad a shape.  The work at home stations have taken over the dining room table and the kitchen island.  Tomorrow was a scheduled day off, and we are continuing to maintain our pre-diaspora schedule, so I am looking at a three day weekend with nothing going on but a few household chores and a remote miniatures game to be hosted by my brother, and my plan is to paint.




Goals for this month include:


24 Ral Partha fantasy civic militia

Bones saprolings as 1/72 scale fantasy monsters

Tabletop World house (far right, pretty far along)

Apocalypse world building (center)

12 vintage Minifig true orc archers

6 British light dragoons for the 40mm French Revolution


Stretch goals

11 40mm French Revolution Gardes Nationale to complete the unit sampled last month

Something Byzantine

a true 25mm fantasy monster or two

Goals for April:

  • not die from the pandemic
  • finish that bloody paint rack, especially as the parts are now all over the dining room table....
  • paint some Star Wars Legion Imperial stuff (a commander and another unit would be helpful for play)
  • play at least one small simple game of Star Wars Legion with my wife
  • assemble more Star Wars Legion rebels for my wife (ordered some from the lfgs to support them during all this...they can't get anything new as the distributors aren't shipping, and I have at least one of all the Imperial stuff they have)
  • resurrect my Ender 3 (main board replacement)
  • get my new Elegoo Mars to actually have something stick to the build plate.....
  • hopefully get my summer car out of the garage and ready to drive (for the first time in a couple of years). Not sure if I can get it registered currently, or if that will have to wait until restrictions ease.....

For me, I've painted more in the past couple months than all of last year I think.  3D printing and crafting stuff for my D&D adventure have been the push I needed to get some paint onto stuff.  My foray into 3D printed busts has introduced some shorter term, different pieces to play with.  Now, if only I could channel a little of that creative energy into some of the Reaper stuff or GW stuff that is filling my basement.  8) 


Goals for April are:

Finish 2 current busts (one is just about there)

Finish painting crafted pillars for D&D

Paint at least 2 other things that are NOT 3d printed (i.e. I already own the physical model)

Finish wiring for the Necron objective markers

3D print more stuff to paint or not... ::P:

With the enforced at home time I have cleared up my hobby space and now I hope to paint some figures from the new Black Bones line.  The skiff and the raft first followed by the big fish.  This will be used in my ongoing D&D campaign, when we get started again.

Well, I did paint all those walls and the ceiling.


Waiting for my new display cabinets ( I ordered two) and a cupboard.

When those arrive I will probably reshuffle the hobby set up, maybe change desks and order a larger table.

Hopefully when that is done I get some hobby time.


We're also looking at removing the small gazebo/shack thing in the back of the garden and replace it with one that actually looks good and is more functional.

      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.
    • By Rob Dean
      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.
