Every year I do this I say it'll be my last.

 

Well, I'm doing it again. Haven't thought of a good title for this one yet.

 

Currently working on a list of minis and a list of what I need to do so I don't forget and skip any prep.

 

Might paint a couple things to get back into the swing of things since I haven't painted in about a month. Calendar and pics of choices coming soon.

That's a good mix, some with lots of detail, some easier to paint.  I'll be watching to see how they come out. :B):

 

I've got most of mine picked out, got a few to wash and prep yet.  Have to sit down and identify all of them.

Thanks! I'm hoping that these are it. Let me know if you start a WIP thread for yours!

Nice to see you doing this again! I look forward to your progress.

 

I'm going to do it a little different this year. I'm not going to worry about getting a mini done a day, but rather 30 minis done in the month. I'm going to try to get a chunk of my Darkspawn army done.

 

Rubegon, yes the goal is the get a mini done a day in November. It is possible, but very challenging. By the end of the month you are usually getting pretty good results very quickly, but you're tired of looking at minis. I'm going to do mine a little different to try to avoid that burnout.

Are you all going to paint 1 mini a day for all of November?!?!  😱 🤯

 

Is that possible?  It stresses me out just thinking about it.  How much time do you typically spend on each one?

 

I used to do a mini a day for it but now I, like @Humansquish, am just shooting for 30 in the month. I get all my prep (assembly, mold line removal, etc.)  done before November so that helps a lot.

 It will be up soon,  I'm aiming for next week sometime.  I picked out some small terrain pieces as well as PCs and monsters.  

 

Also going to do 30 minis in 30 days rather than 1 per day.  I can paint most days, but some days I won't be able to at all.

This is a challenging project! So many different characters, hard to batch them for quick painting, you will probably go insane with the finishing and details if you are already not insane, which you probably are.

Oh, definitely insane. This is my...4th or 5th nonconsecutive year I've done this. Always great fun.

I am just now figuring out that the alcohol soaking for bones really improves priming and painting.

 

Yeah, I've only started using it too. Much better than bowls of soap and water and lots of scrubbing.

 

List of the minis:

      I am burnt out on painting so I've picked back up my story I started last year. So starting a couple of days ago I decided that since I'm busy with real life stuff I will write in my free time.
       
      I've been make some headway going back and changing and adding things.
       
      I'm excited for something different for a little while.

      Painted this one for a Halloween gift exchange amongst some friends. Very happy with it.

      I've been trying to figure out how I want to set up my Bones V WIPs. Because, well, I got A Lot of stuff. I didn't want to do one thread for everything because again, A Lot of stuff. So this is the start of the Core Set WIP. I will try to give proper names to minis and at least use the number it is listed in the KS images. I will probably start listing each grouping of minis as found on the KS page and link to where it starts by updating this post to find things easier.
       
      I'd already finished this one by the time I thought to do this.

      I am looking for something to put on Grimtalon's base that will look like desert sand. I have found a few things but I am not sure how well they will work. I don't really want to spend 10$ for Citadel technical paints if at all possible. I thought Army Painter might have some but alas they do not.
       
      I did find some Vallejo desert sand gel. Has anyone worked with this before? If so, how did it come out?
       
      Are there other options I have not considered that might work? I'm still fairly new to basing so I want to put a little more effort than "winging it" for this.
