@billeecats I had the same feeling of what have I done when I first opened the big box, then again when I started putting together the core set. I'm certain I'll feel that way again when the next kickstarter for minis shows up, but thats not til next April so I've got a while. I also backed one for base toppers and quality brushes, those two are supposed to be arriving sometime next month.

 

@R2ED I have to keep things organized, I have OCD issues with organization. My boss loves it, cause it helps to keep the cooler at my store looking nice. I would have taken up more space if I could in the garage, but its not just my garage and we are still cleaning it up.

@Ambrousis I feel that. I got the ReaperCon mega bundle, so whenever that arrives, I'll feel this twinge again, but then I'm not allowing myself to buy any more minis for a while.

 

On a different note, I love seeing others painting spaces. My current painting area is a folding table in our guest room, which is already too cramped because it has my desk for work as well (I work full time from home). We're hoping to move to a bigger home early next year, when I'll finally get an actual office, and some dedicated space for painting. I have so many ideas around how I'll organize that, but it's an evolving plan, and seeing what everyone else does with their painting spaces is great inspiration.

Tonight will be my first time painting in a while. I am going to do some highlighting on a group of Pathfinder goblins that I started a while ago and then abandoned.  For the most point they have all been basecoated and I am going to hit them with my new goblin flesh recipe.  Then finish off weapons and torches and such.

From some of the other pictures I've seen of the gem dragon it looks like the base is somewhat hollow, I've got some ideas on LEDs for it and the loot golem. I'll know better once they show up.

 

The base is in two parts; the top part is hollow, and slots into the bottom part:

Wait a minute... am i the only one left in this group who has not received bones 5 yet?  Please tell me this is not the case. 

 

I have 2 giant boxes arriving from Reaper tomorrow as well! I don't actually know whether it's my pledge, my minis for the classes I'm teaching at ReaperCon, or both, but one thing's for sure:

 

TOMORROW THERE WILL BE PLASTIC

 

Huzzah!

Got my shipping notification last night! ARRIVES WEDNESDAY!  I might be the last one to get it in this group, but I can't wait to get started. I have to clean up the workstation from its current chaotic state when I get off work, and organize a bunch of foam I found for terrain projects. I wasn't expecting to stumble on 6 full sized sheets of that pink foam stuff and it's taking up more storage than I'd like. Also gotta figure where to put that pirate ship.....

      Got another one in this week.  I'm on a roll!
       
      Still doing my work on these marines looking for a color combo I really like.  I completed Red, Blue, Green, and Black.  I've got 2 more color schemes to test, which are Grey and White.  We'll see in the coming days how much energy I've got for them.
       
      This one came out pretty good. 

       
      I still need to base and touch up his sword with more color, but he's pretty much done outside of that.  Enough for me to post in WIP.
       
      The process was pretty good and I'm learning that these sub-assemblies help a TON in getting to those insanely hard to reach spots.  I took pictures of what the sub assembly looks like just to what my method was and hopefully helps others struggling.

      Finished the Paint job on another marine.  I'll need to come up with a cool base.  I planned out this time black, red, yellow, blue colors. 
       
      Here's the first one of this set up. 

       
      Here's the purebred. 
       
      Give me feedback.  If you'd like this black background let me know.

      Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set.  So so so much to paint still. 
       
      Here we go.  The necromancer.

       
      I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo.  That stuff has terrible coverage.  Chalky.   And thinning it makes it take forever to dry.  Not a fan.  Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."  
       
      I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works.  I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't.  She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.

      Got the first set of 5 done.  I bought 5 Santas (one was in my bones 5), 4 Mrs. Claus, 4 Christmas mouselings.   I'm preparing a holiday ornament and diorama for friends to give them. 
       
      Santa is now complete, but still need to get him on his base with Mrs. Claus.
       

       
       
      Battle Report! 
       
       
      I painted my first santa with a black primer.   It took about 4 or 5 layers to get red to actually show and not look washed out.  I just happened across a youtube video where Paintman Journeying was talking about how laying pink under red will help coverage and saturation.   Was worth a try for how many red clothes characters i was about to do. 
       
      WORKS AMAZING.  
       
      I then took all of them to base coat with airbrush. And not only that, it gave me a great way to go through more of the BCA pink i have 5 bottles of.   Finally i can use it on more things!   Warning for others: BCA pink has weird coverage. It's very very very very chalky. I hadn't noticed it on my small parts i use to paint it on like tongues or trinkets, but on big areas i really noticed.  
       
      The assembly like setup on these worked great. Painted in this order:
      Coat, pants, hat first. 
      Santa's gift bag (different red)  next. 
      Cream trims next. 
      Face.
      Teddy bear.
      Washes on face and bear. 
      Gloves, boots, and belt. 
      Packages and trim. 
       
      So far so good.

      So, i don't know if this is okay or not, but i wanted to share them.  I had never painted any warhammer stuff.  Both because of the cost and the fear of getting caught up in that universe.  Well... it started. 
       
      I bought my first set of intercessors back in January, but never touched them because i just didn't feel able to take them on.  There's some amazing painters who do these and i always felt inadequate.  Gotta start somewhere though.  I started watching a ton of videos on them and put some ideas together. 
       
      Here's my first ever 5 painted.  I tried to test two paint schemes green and blue. I think they both came out great. 
       


       

       

       

       

       
      having never got into these before, i now see the reason people like these so much.  Very fun but very time consuming.  
       
      Would love your feedback.
