For now, I'm thinking relatively simple... 

  • Work on Zaku 1 Sniper conversion
  • Work on M1150 Assault Breacher Vehicle 
  • Finish painting Queen of Hell
  • Finish assembling and panel lining my MG Wing Gundam Zero EW Ver.Ka (bonus: do the waterslides too)

 

Won't have anywhere near the free time now though, due to having a full time job again, but I'll take the "loss" of free time for financial stability, as well as making more than my previous job ^_^

Decisions, decisions.  It's sometimes tough to figure out where I want to start with so many minis in my backlog.

 

But I've got to make a plan (even if I'm going to abandon it in short order):

 

  • Finish GF9's Aliens: Accidents and Hazards (sentry guns x2, computer terminals x6, and crates x16)
  • Merfolk from Bones V
  • Tyrants of Lothal allies (Zeb, Sabine, Ezra, and Kannan) and villains (Hondo and Thrawn)

Well, I have the day off today as a regularly scheduled thing, so I am settling in for a four day weekend and some painting to get the month started.

 

I definitely have 1/72 medieval figures for my Portable Fantasy set up ready to go; I’ve got two 8-figure stands in progress (one at 5/8, one at 2/8).

There are some Stargrave figures on the table, and I need a new specialist for next week’s game.

I want to get back to some 54mm Russian flats I picked up this spring; several are parked on the desk.

And, there’s 40mm 18th century awaiting my attention.

 

Any of that would be good…

#1 goal is to do anything hobby related. Haven't turned on the 3D printer in a couple of months, Bones V arrived and I quickly sorted and repacked them, bought some Stargrave minis and rules and built 10 minis, painted 2 in July. Just haven't had my heart in it and need to change that.  Not sure how much because I'm kind of low on energy and need to do a lot of other things before winter.

RCL stuff to hopefully be finished. I'm not sure how long the tattoo I'm getting will take to heal and it will be directly in the way of how I brace my arms to paint.

 

  • Theme: Dreadmere Fishing Boat
    • This should be relatively fast.
  • Limited Palette: (Arclord Purple, Orchid Purple, and Burgundy Wine, Coal Black, Linen White) - Dire Crab (77671)
    • This should also be pretty quick.
  • PC: Bones V Core #1099
    • Need to prep and assemble.
  • Monster: BV Core #1020
    • Need to prep and assemble.
  • Duo: Dungeon Dwellers Treasure Dragon
    • Prep and assemble...again.
  • Trio: ???????
    • (Still looking for a group)
  • New Release: Damras Deveril, Wizard
    • Just ordered this this morning.
  • Freebie: Fan Favorites Axolotl Mage
    • This is mostly done.

 

I also need to do the rest of my quarterly stuff that I want to do.

 

  • Bust: BV Dragon Bust
    • Started
  • Seasonal: BV Brinewind Powder Monkey (#732)
    • Prepped
  • Large Group +4: Terror Fish kitbash
    • Done
  • Pop-up (Spirit of the Forest): BV Core Tree...thing?

I've got two minis done so far this month, Fellclaw and a Phase Spider.

6 skeletal archers at the basing stage

4 previously painted archers that had some touch ups and are at the basing stage

6 skeletal swordsmen waiting to begin

4 skeletal swordsmen needing touchups/basing

goal is to finish these and the unit of twenty skeletal spearmen before October hits, as well as any other Halloween themed minis I can add in.

Well,  I've been getting some work done.

 

The last crates were finished earlier tonight. The sentry guns need work,  though. As do the terminals.

And at the mid-month check in I have actually been having a good month.  I’ve worked on some scenery, finished a Stargrave drone, finished two 8-figure stands of 1/72 mostly-historicals, and an unexpected set of 3 Ral Partha orc leaders to test out a new set of rules.  I’m trying to get through another 8-figure 1/72 stand this weekend, and paint is falling on some side projects as I go.

I don't think I remembered to post a goal this month, but I did manage to get 10 cavalry done for an Oathmark game, some other minis, and then some more terrain for Stargrave. So a good month. I've a bit of time off before starting a new job so will try and clear more of the paint table in October.
