Currently, get my resin printer back to actually printing things again, vs having a empty plate after it's done with a print!! Once again, get the Ender 3 going again, so I can make use of that printer as well. Hopefully, I'll throw in a some miniature painting as well. After the 12th of the month, I have 2 of 3 weeks off, so hey, let's do something!!!

 

Strike one from the list. I just needed to go back to the original Photon S setting & then tweak it a bit. It's not as crisp as I'd like it to but hey it's printing minis that I need for next Monday.

Goal 1: AT-ST

 

AT-ST Done!  So much effort for something that will probably never see table time.

 

On to the Nagendra!  Three and a half of them hit with Blue Liner today at lunch.  I just need to re-glue an arm and get the others primed...and decide on a paint scheme.  I don't want to just do green.

I just want to get some sort of hobbying done.

1] Prep some 1/400 mobile suits.

2] Work on some CAV, possibly tanks to use with 1 above.

3] Do something with the small horde of bones bugbears I have.

4] Something else.

A bit late, but my goal for this month is:

1) Get hobbying done...
 

Specifically:

1) Paint Deathclaw for Fallout

2) Print stuff

3) Paint Bones Avatar of Sokar

4) Get 3d printing files sorted in some way so I know what I've actually got!

This month:

 

Some more fantasy pirates, orcs and goblins mainly. 

Finish off some orcs and goblins for Oathmark that I've sprayed and based. 

Some vikings, historical minis, for the Saga skirmish/small unit game. 

Paint some skeleton archers for Rangers of Shadow Deep. 

Finish off some heroic/fantasy viking themed minis, nearly all from Reaper, for Saga or other skirmish games. 

At the mid point, I haven't really touched any of these projects. 

 

I really enjoyed painting a couple of Chronoscope power armour suits, completely different to my usual interests. 

I finished Lashanna, who I'd brought a few months ago. 

The Mantic Terraincrate KS arrived so I painted essentially some Sylvanian Family furniture and some spooky trees. 

 

I'm going to see where I get to with the original list. There are quite a few primed and half painted minis on the shelf and it may be that I just pick out a few of them for a while and only work on the Rangers of Shadow Deep bits which I need for a game. 

 

On the gaming, I've now gone through all of the missions up to the latest book "Across the Wastes". I've painted a bunch of minis and made terrain for that so looking forward to a play through.

Goal 1: AT-ST.  DONE!

 

Goal 2: Bones IV Nagendra.  Urghk.  I'm almost done with the Matriarch (ventral scale highlights, head).  The Archer is almost done (leather highlights, scale highlights, bow, arrows).  The Captain is almost (well, like halfway) done (armor detail, scale highlights, ventral scales, swords).  The Warriors and the naginata/glaive/spear-snake are pretty much untouched (ventral scales on the warriors).  Medical issue followup (the PA doesn't get to diagnose in this case, which means I have to do my own research) derailed me, and I lost a week driving myself crazy.  And all those scales...At least the snakes aren't white.

 

Goal 3: Twin Shadows Stormtroopers.   It's not looking good for the 'Troopers.  I'm hoping to get the clean-up and maybe the base coat done.

 

Goal 4: (Bonus Round) Twin Shadows Miscellaneous.  If it's not looking good for the 'Troopers, the odds of me working on the Tuskens, my remaining rebels, or Boba Fett are even longer.

Half month or so update. Mostly I've worked on my counting skills. I said I had about 20 cavalry and 20 infantry left for my russians. I painted 4 cavalry and still have 21 cavalry and 29 infantry (maybe) left. July is usual bad for hobbying for me but rain showers mean I've got a little bit of painting done.

Well I dropped off the map for a while there! Goals back from May (!?) accomplished to the tune of

-8 bad dudes and 3 rad dudes from Artizan/NorthStar
-9 plant monsters from Hydra, 2 from Reaper, and 3 from Crooked Dice
-2 Innsmouth residents, 2 wastelanders, 2 cultists, and a bunch of retro computers from Crooked Dice
-4 slaad/frogmonsters and a big ol' demon from Wizkids
-Dumpster, generator, shipping container, and vending machines, also giant sloth, Fungal Bruiser, barbarian, genie, mad scientist, and ronin from Reaper.
Stretch goals of turning the Brain-in-a-jar into an aquarium, scratch-building some little mushroom guys, and touching up some cheap dollar-store Pleistocene megafauna also accomplished!

Goals for the remainder of July:
-Pygmy Mammoth 
-FINALLY finish Pulp Rocket Sophie

Goal 2Bones IV Nagendra.  DONE (as done as they're ever gonna be)!  I just need to get the camera battery charged, and something set up to get some scenes with the apes (which I don't think I've ever shown).

Paint Binge!  Starting the evening of the 3rd and going all weekend until the 6th I have 22 figures I plan to complete. 

 

The rest of the month will be finishing bases, photographing and posting pictures.  

 

 

 

Completed 16 figures and 5 pieces of small terrain. 

 

Have posted 8 photos, need to get more of those out. 

 

Prepping for August and Terrainageddon!  Have about a dozen pieces I want to get done.

For this month I'm thinking... 

- Paint every day, even if it's "just" 20 or 30 minutes. That adds up over a month (it's 10h 20m for the lower amount, and 15 hours 30 minutes for the higher), and there would be steady progress over time

- Assuming CanadaPost doesn't take forever to get them here, get my Operation: Kaldstrom minis assembled 

- Complete one HaqqIslam and one Ariadna mini, from their respective starter boxes

- Continue painting my MDF terrain (bonus points if something gets finished!) 

- Finish assembling the four walls for my Warsenal Cosmica HAB Building

- Glue Warsenal Support Structures to their paper terrain so I can use said terrain on our board

So, in some ways it feels like I didn't get as much as I wanted done this month, but on the flipside, work changed us to a two on one "off" schedule, and then the heat. By the gods the heat.  I wound up not doing hobby related stuff every day, but I still put in an amount of time close to the overall "minimum" of the timeframe I had posted, so I'm calling that even.

 

For August, I'm hoping to run an actual tally, and I might even look into doing the board thing someone else on the forums used to do, where various "jobs" are listed and each mark next to it indicates twenty minutes of work.  Given that I want to work on my speed as well as see where I'm putting my time, I could see this potentially working out, or at least being useful. 

 

Kaldstrom is assembled - Beyond Kaldstrom Yu Jing will be assembled tomorrow, but the other 18 minis are assembled and based, and are pretty much ready for priming.  Haqq and Ariadna minis pretty much didn't get touched, since Kaldstrom took my attention pretty quickly. 

 

Warsenal Cosmica HAB walls are still at 0/4 assembled, however I have a bunch of glue mixed I want to use up, so I'm going to try and get through at least one tomorrow.  For support structures, I have one half of a Neon Lotus set to assemble (four tall building inserts, two cube inserts, and two bridge inserts), and then the eight short buildings that just need to be glued.  If I cleaned up my space a bit, I could probably smash through most of this in an afternoon, doubly so since I already have the wood glue mixed up.

      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.
