2022 Painting During the Pandemic (More Miniatures March!)


Recommended Posts

February seemed liked a short month. 😀 I took an extended weekend trip, so I got less done, and cleaned my desk all the way off for visitors, so I have a metaphorical clean slate for March.

 

Still on the (now virtual) table since February:

 

40mm home cast imaginary countries 18th century figures (the Not Quite Seven Years War)

Burrows and Badgers new warband for a game to be staged at Gen Con

25mm vintage Minifig Mythical Earth figures (Rohirrim, or Gondorian Rangers of Ithilien)

 

New(-ish) initiative based on actual February activity:

 

Figures to fill out a D&D game using mostly Ral Partha up through about 1986

 

I’m not going to name target numbers, but I will hope that any work advances at least one of those categories and doesn’t veeer off into another. 

 

Squirrel!  (Oh wait, there’s at least one of those in the B&B picks….)

Almost got everything finished last month, so I'm going to stick with this whole goal setting thing!

This months goals:-

 

Finish Blunderbuss's base and paint another Twisted mini (Either Agatha Christie or Poirot or both if I have time),

Finish building my Rollin Black gang and get one of them painted (Probably one of the smaller ones),

Finish my Cursed City Leaping Vampire,

Start work on my Valkyrie (This one's a biggie, so I'm not expecting to get it finished this month),

Get a miscellaneous mini painted, if I finish everything else.

  •  Paint this month's game token
  •  Paint this month's Mithril miniature
  •  Paint one figure from the annual box

If time permits I want to do something RCL for the quarter

Painted yesterday for the first time in a couple of weeks. Gonna stick with simple goals. Finish my 1944 Soviet Mechanised Corps. I'm almost done printing them and they paint real fast. Finish painting a handful of old plastic GW Empire Swordsmen. Anything over that will be a bonus.

Main goals for this month pretty much are...

- Get the Voron Trident powered up and printing
- Finish building my Master Grade Sazabi

- Finish initial prep for Master Grade Zaku 1 Sniper resin conversion

- Decide colour scheme for Zaku 1 Sniper

- Build a fun/relax kit.  Seriously thinking the Real Grade Skygrasper!

- Get waterslides on one of the five (or more?) kits that's sitting in the "needs waterslides and topcoat to be counted as finished" section.

Am enjoying taking a break from doom scrolling through painting. Also have briefly got my 'to paint' pile on desk down to a single a4 tray. 

 

Goals for this month, 

Finish the stargrave minis I've collated. Have got about 12 of those. 

Midlam miniatures dwarves, from one of their kickstarters. 

Reaper bones v fire giant King. 

Terrain, I brought a load of resin terrain at a small trade show, and some resin tree sized mushrooms, and will paint those up.

Two large minis painted well: 

Grab A__ djnn scion for the RCL Trio 

Shadow Dragon from bones 5 - I want to have it roughly finished but keep pushing it to competition level -ie its not getting based this month 

 

4 minis from the core set. 

Hand spell effect. 

 

So quality over quantity this time.

My painting goals for each month are:

  • Paint 2 minis per week
  • One of which must be painted in under 2 hours per mini (to move towards my overarching life goal of "progress, not perfection")
  • Paint 1 terrain piece per week
  • So for February that means painting 8 minis, 4 of which must be painted in 2 hours or less per mini, and 4 terrain pieces.

However, the backlog from January got bigger in February due to me winning a new position. So my free time got chewed up by finishing up stuff at my old job and learning the ropes of my new job.

 

Getting caught up on the "2 hour minis" should be easy as I've got 12 Reaper Bones rats on my painting table at the moment that will certainly take much less than 2 hours per mini to paint. Keeping pace with the terrain pieces is easy too as I've got a heap of small scatter terrain and dungeon dressing that is quick to paint.

 

Keeping pace on the other minis will be more of a challenge, but I'll be trying my best to catch up a little there.

At the midpoint for the month of March, I am doing pretty well. As soon as I finish this month's Mithril miniature, I will try to polish off two more figures from my backlog and start two more figures from my annual box.

And at the midway point, 

 

Decent start on the midlam dwarves. There's a batch of about 15 minis and they all have some colour on them. 5 are nearly done. 

Resin mushrooms and terrain done. 

The planned stargrave minis haven't been touched but I have nearly done 16 stargrave suitable zombies that id assembled and primed. 

Also a few other random bits from the tray.
