2020; Finally the End ... (December Hobby Goals)

Recommended Posts

It’s the first day of the last month...while I think the 2020 feeling will be with us for a while yet, it’s nearly the end of the year.

 

I think that I am working on 1/72 scale fantasy project figures, and still trying to get the Prince August fantasy game on the table.  With some modified holiday preparations, I’m not sure how that will go, and I intend to post a refined goal after I think about it a little more...

Hopefully I can put a dent in the mighty horde that has overtaken the desk over the last few months. I've been having a hard time keeping the painting motivation going, and it's habit of running off is seriously beginning to irritate me. So the goal for the month is to at least try and get a daily regimen going again.

Just finished one large project and am almost ready for my winter work slow down. So more hobby time hopefully.

First priority finish up a bunch of Bones civilians that I have half painted. These guys sit on the shelf next to my painting table and whenever I have some paint left on the palette I slap some on them to use it up. Then when they're mostly finished I focus on them which is what I need to do now.

2nd priority is finishing 2 units of Mantic skeletons that I've also tinkered with in between other jobs. Get them done and moved from the ready area to the finished area.

Long term goal work on my Warhammer Empire army from the 90s. This will take months of steady painting.

3D print more ruins and other terrain.

Keep learning how to do more with various 3D design programs.

For December:

 

-- finish the other half of my christmas quilt, it's a long slog 

-- finish up some of the half painted odds and ends on my paint table so I can start 2021 with a clean(er) slate. 

-- christmas/new year's paint binge theme: It's Cats All the Way Down

I didn't finish my November goals. So in December I plan to:

  • Finally finish my last three Hasslefree minis, so I can order a whole new batch for next year
  • Finish my Secret Sophie exchange figure(s). You may see them here
  • Paint this month's Mithril miniature

This doesn't seem like much. But I have multiple kickstarter games coming this month which will be a distraction

 

My hobby goals for 2020 include:

  • Painting more miniatures for Rangers of Shadow Deep and Frostgrave games (24 so far)
  • Entering at least two miniature painting contests (and the monthly Frostgrave contest) -Check!
  • Painting some sci-fi minis for the game Slipstream (20 so far)
  • Painting the seventeen figures in my annual box (0 remain) - Check!
  • Painting a Mithril miniature each month (Finished with 12) - Done!

Goal is to dip a brush into paint and put said brush and paint onto a mini. I don't have to finish the mini, I'll settle for a single brushstroke at this point. Anything past that is bonus.

I've got through a lot this year and think I will be happy working through the Reaper Bones advent calendar my wife kindly got me (one Bones mini per day) and finishing off the elf light infantry I have on my desk. There will then be the usual mix of random minis that I pick up and paint.

More projects in my mind than I have time for

- Finish the sails on my scratch-built Brigantine

- Paint up a commission when it eventually arrives

- Assemble and paint my new Croak Raiders - they are destined to be a tribal society of Bullywug

- Paint up some gnolls and ghouls for Rangers of Shadow Deep

- Paint up my trio of Tiik now that I've finally got my hands on the third one

- Procrastinate

- Inevitable new task

- Mal'Drakar (let's face it, it'll be a miracle if he gets painted before the end of 2021)
