Beware the vows of March! So let's have 'em--what are your painting commitments?

For me it'll be the following:
1. Paint the 11 remaining England Invaded figs (already based and primed)
2. Clean, base, and prime 5 Copplestone Castings Cavewomen
3. Clean, base and prime a box of Skorne Venators (6?)
4. Clean, prime and paint my new Martian flying boat

Those are for sure. I'm debating also finishing off my other driller, blaster and gunner, or working on my Drazen's Horde Chainmail figs. So we'll end up seeing which direction I go.

Note that I'm putting off working on my 24 Kroot/Venusian Parrotmen project. Part of that is a question of basing (though I'll probably just use the GW bases, since my ACW and England Invaded figs use 20mm rounds anyway), but part of that is just the intimidation at painting 24 of one kind of figure. It's been a while since I've tackled a 40k sized project and I'm not looking forward to it...

I have a Hordes tourney I plan on attending and getting my ass handed to me in, so I need to get some stuff in gear.

So far I have:
  • 1 Vayle

  • 1 Seraph

  • 2 Nephilim

  • 1 Forsaken

  • 1 Swamp gobbers unit

  • 1 Totem hunter

  • Assembled

    I have 5 raptors, 12 archers, 10 swordsmen, 1 carnivean, 1 forsaken and 1 angelius that need to be assembled still. I have the next 5 days off, so I think I can get the majority of this assembled if not all of it, with a decent jump on the preliminary stages of painting.

    So I think the majority of this month is going to be modelling, but I will try to get some painting in as well, with luck.

    - Depending on time, I might start working on my IG Stormtroopers some more. At the very least get the cloth work done on them all.

    I think I'll just make the list of what I have to do, in order of importance, and then work my way down the list!

    - finish my last ten gaunts (shouldn't take so long since they're almost done except for details and basing)
    - finish building two ruins (one already 80% done)
    - paint two miniatures (old man and old woman) as best as I possibly can, they'll be part of a wedding gift
    - paint 12 genestealers

    I'd be very happy if I manage to get all that done, but I doubt I'll get the stealers finished this month. On the other hand, if I do, I've only got two large creatures and a couple weapon arms left to paint and I've got my 1.000 point nid army done. Hmmm...

    This will be a busy month for me in the real world, so I doubt I'll get much done.

    I've got to finish what I've got started, including...

  • Finish putting glossy on the snow.

  • Paint my 3 obstacles (crates).

  • Complete and paint my 2 ruined houses.

  • New Career Time?

    Well I kind of moved near Toronto, actually.

    finish a bunch of half finished stuff, including, unfortunately, my February vow.

    Properly pin and base my Hordes stuff and put the finishing touches on the terrain I have. Stuff I've been putting off for ... for as long as I've been gaming/ studenting, basically.

    After that April will probably be painting Hordes stuff, wee.

    My March vows will be:

    Finish my DA HQ unit from Feb.
    Finish building/converting 2x Ravenwing attack squadrons, undercoat and paint (incl. chaplain)
    Finish the GS on my BL squad and paint.
    Finish Abbaddon's retinue conversion and the man himself. Then paint.
    Finish BL rhino (GS the gaps from having to cut up plastic doors to make the FW ones fit/size better... )
    Paint FW dreadnought base for WE dreadnought and add final highlight and brass etch (which will also be painted)

    I've not touched my DA Dev squad from last month or the LR's and rhino's i had intended to paint as I've decided to get an airbrush and basecoat the DA green on to speed things up. I'll do these towards the end of the month once I've done the above squads.

    That'll do for now. I'm fully expecting to have this all done early as it's mostly black stuff which is way easier/faster for me to paint. As usual though, I'll probably deviate a bit so that'll do!

    Always strikes first due to being a ''shady wee bas''.
    +5pts. for buckfast bottle (Sv becomes invulnerable).

    I saw this, every bone in my body wanted to make a snarky retort. Something along the lines of "Aim High, Malfred!" or some such.

    Then I realized how little I paint anymore...and with a grimace on my face, and a tear in my eye, I peed in my pants a little.

    Touching up:

    a bunch of escorts, and some ordinance
    for a campaign I'm currently running

    I deffinately need some inspiration so here we go.

    My March Vows will be:
    Finish the 12 marines I've been working on.
    Finish My Revent Crew conversion
    Finish my Rengrave conversion
    Work on the Warhounds some more.
    Maybe even start finishing my Terminus.

    I've been listening to the Warmachine pod casts alot lately so its really been reviving my interest in my Cryx and Khador. Since my cryx are almost done I might as well finish them.

    Got a decent jump on Vows today.

    Finished cleaning flash, pinning, assembling and greenstuffing:
    1 Forsaken
    1 Raptor
    1 Saeryn proxy (W. Klocke reaper mini)

    Cleaned the flash off of 4 other Raptors.

    The Raptor I did finish was a huge pain in the butt, taking the majority of the day to complete due to greenstuff. Blending the fur with GS to make the head seem part of the model was tedious.
    I guess thats the thing with PP models. Great molding, little flash, but.....a huge pain to assemble and make them look like they should.

    February was marginally productive. Did more flash-trimming, assembling and priming than painting, despite all of the primed stuff I have on my desk. I *did* get some of the little jobs done though (like finishing trimming/carapacing 3 genestealers, finishing highlights on zealots).

    March vows:
    Finish highlights on 10 Bile Thralls
    Finish painting Typhus, PM Champ, 2 Deathguard Termies
    Paint 7 Plaguebearers + Warp Gate
    Paint Severius, Skarre, Gorman and Eiryss

    maybe get a start on painting 10 IG jetbike roughriders. (Painting bikes and riders separately)

    Finish magneting and nurgle-ing Chaos Predator.
    Finish magneting and converting Flyrant.
    Test-conversion of (metal) Chaos terminator combibolter to combiplasma using plastic Chaos Plaspistol. If successful, repeat x13.

    1. Finish apothecary(just baseing and varnish)
    2. Paint librarian, this will finish my command squad.
    3. Paint my land raider. Command sqad needs a tricked out ride!

    Assuming my bits orders arrive soon, my March looks something like:

  • Continue work on the Biker Boss build

  • Convert Deff Choppa pilots

  • Base and Paint Deff Choppas

  • Assemble/convert 15 Lootas


  • That's the official list. If I have time between the loota mold lines (shoot me please, D3 times per turn) and painting the choppers, I'll start on my Sproingboys.

    (suddenly I get the feeling I've over-vowed again...)

    February was a bit of a flop, ended up spending the month building ogres for the most part. Now it's time to really get some mileage, particularly with APOC III looming March 15th.

    Painting CSM to 2000
    - 1 demon prince
    - 1 dreadnought
    - 1 land raider
    - 3 terminators

    Building Ogres to 2000
    - 1 slave troll
    - 1 tyrant

    The giant troll (dire troll blitzer conversion ) will be done tonight, but otherwise I intend to grind the termies this week. I'd love to do the dread next week and have it ready for APOC III, but it's been 2 months and no word from FW ...

    March is a busy month for me, but I'm always up for a challenge. I'm a slow painter, so I'll go with painting a 15-dwarf warrior from the BoSP set.

    I upped it to 15. Twelve is a stupid number for a unit

    I said MAYBE, so therefore I am aiming high.

    Work has been a drag. My computer busting has been a drag. Family
    stuff has been a drag.

    (My outfits have all been in drag...wait what?)

    I haven't been motivated for various reasons; I won't bore you with
    the details. Right now I just feel like I'll paint something when I
    paint something.

    It is fun seeing what you guys put up on the boards, though.

    3) at least start on the base colors of my bubble headed leader.

    4) detail and rebase all my green muties to better fit with my traitors including making sure that they have appropriate weapons.

    5) umm... probably won't get this far.
