We left them at the idea mill, and the military took over. Or aliens took over, and the military is being all hush hush... (/purple)

Gameplan for September... 

 

- survive the great tidying! 

- try to take over the world! (wait, wrong script) 

- finish my Yu Jing Guilang, Daofei, and that first Zhanshi

- clean up assembly desk. Probably finish building the stuff on it too, that could help :ph34r:

September Goals:

  • Rauthuros.  Oh, he's gonna be a challenge.  I don't think I've ever successfully painted something his size before.  I'm just not sure how this will work out.
  • Start Tyrants of Lothal.  Sixteen minis left in Star Wars: Imperial Assault.  I honestly never thought I'd see the day.

Isn’t step 3 always supposed to be “Profit” ?

 

MY plan this month is to start picking through the old Reaper Minis from my case of unpainted NPCs, apply paint, give them not-so-serious backstories, and post the resultant rogue’s gallery in the Show Off forum.  We’ll see how far I get!

This is the Seventh Month. Do nothing except what can be done by sevens, or sevenths… (as opposed to done by halves).

Goals for this month are to finish the minis on and around my desk. Not too eclectic, there are a lot of elven light infantry from North Star then a mix of fantasy, pirate, and Sci fi. 

 

If I am inclined I will get another 'point' of Saga Vikings done, by painting 8 on warriors and a warlord.

So, I start the month with the same stuff on my desk as last month:

 

A half dozen homecast 40mm 1793 British light dragoons to work on (again...)

About 8 urban fantasy figures primed and/or with a few basic colors

A unit of 8 1/72 plastic mercenaries for the Portable Fantasy Campaign

Another handful of assorted 1/72s (elves and assorted non-combatant NPCs)

A bunch of Prince August 25mm home cast fantasy test figures

Some walls and a bridge

 

Of that, I did three urban fantasy figures last month, plus some assorted 1/72s that will count for September after basing.  Low expectations goal for this month: Do more than I did in August. :rolleyes:

Due to all kinds of real life things I haven't painted much lately.

 

My goals for September.

 

  • Finish the Antimatter 9-Gill Shark
  • Finish the Antimatter Beast of Cronos
  • Paint anything I have on my desk right now ( it's crowded)

The old familiar refrain, russians and skeletons. I'm almost done my russian horse archers, about 14 spear cavalry, 10 peasant archers and not sure how many heavy infantry to go. If I can actually sit down and paint it should be doable in September but I've been saying that for 2-3 months now and only finished a small handful of cavalry.

I don't have any clever ideas this month either.  September is going to be:

 

1. finishing basement remodel, for real this time

2. getting through Reapercon, or whatever it is this year

3. finishing the terrain I started last month

 

Anything else is a bonus.

In keeping with my long term goals for the year in September I plan to:

  • Paint some more terrain for Rangers of Shadow Deep
  • Paint the last four figures in my Anno Domini 1666 core game
  • Paint two more sci-fi miniatures
  • Paint this month's Mithril miniature

 

   And I have as a personal gaming goal, to run Rangers of Shadow Deep on Reapercon Online. Check!

                  

My hobby goals for 2020 include:

  • Painting more miniatures for Rangers of Shadow Deep and Frostgrave games (22 so far)
  • Entering at least two miniature painting contests (and the monthly Frostgrave contest)
  • Painting some sci-fi minis for the game Slipstream (20 so far)
  • Painting all the figures in my annual box (5 remain)
  • Painting a Mithril miniature each month [On track with 9]

Count all my unfinished MInis. 

156 non-bones 

293 Bones 

 

If I had know how few non-bones minis I actually have I would have gone deeper into a recent Desert Kickstarter.  100 or so elves & mummies seems like a better deal in hindsight. 

my KS 5  order (+205)  is not going to help the ratio.  

 

painting goals: 

my only metal dragon.

5 bones - likely villagers 

go to a little bit of Reapercon Online.

My goal is the same boring one as always, finish 4 medium minis or equivalent.

      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.
