I haven't painted much at all for the last few years, so I'm pushing myself to get back into it.


My January painting goals were:

  • Paint 10 minis
  • Of those 10, paint 5 of them in under 2 hours per mini (to move towards my overarching life goal of "progress, not perfection" 
  • Paint 5 terrain pieces


We were away camping for the start of the month, so I didn't actually break out the paints until about halfway through the month. In the end, I only painted a single "2 hour" mini, but I did get 8 terrain pieces smashed out.


However, my main overall goal was simply to get back to putting paint on stuff and I certainly achieved that. So, while I missed my goal, I'm confident I'll be able to catch up my backlog soon enough.


We're only 4 days into February and I've almost got another 2 minis finished, plus another 5 "2 hour" minis prepped and ready to go. So my motivation is high to keep going.


This is a quick snap what I got done.




On the weekend I aim to take a better photo using a light box. The Golden Snitch in the photo is still a WIP. That should be finished soon. The table at the back technically didn't count as part of my 8 painted terrain pieces as the metal bands weren't finished (but have since been finished).


Yearly goal tracker:

  • "Normal" minis painted (0/5) - Behind schedule
  • "2 hour" minis painted (1/5) - Behind schedule
  • Terrain pieces painted (8/5) - Ahead of schedule
