So after having been involved in a few threads here people talk about motivation to get hobby stuff done I figured this was something that we could tackle in a different way as a community, not just as individuals battling alone against the mountain of plastic, resin metal and more.


So here is what I propose:
1) Each person who joins in states what their current focus/objective/intentions are. This might be anything from finishing one model to a whole army with no specific time scale

2) Each week everyone gets a ping to come post about their progress; posting up details (and ideally a photo, no matter how bad)showing what they have achieved that week. It might be just cleaning the mould lines off parts or painting up a whole squad or whatever.

3) Through the week updates can be posted; detail given and encouragement/swapping of ideas etc.... And because its a group rather than individual thread it should see more activity.



The idea is to encourage rather than enforce a work-rate. Even if a person only does minimal amounts of progress each week; any progress is progress. The idea in this being to apply a degree of pressure to help reinforce getting on with things whilst also acting as a source of ideas, methods and inspiration.



So anyone interested in joining in?

1 Slaughter Queen
5 Melusai

We're doing something similar on our local group.

My current backlog is:

Box of five Wraithguard.
8x Swooping Hawks
1x Baharroth
1x (just paint) Rhino Russ chassis.
1x Sorcerer (or Lord) on a Bike
3x Rapiers w/ crewmen.
1x Land Raider kit to turn into a Typhon.

Model count: 26

Not a tremendous lot, but it's all I've got to do, excluding a few metal Terminators I may or may not end up doing. They're not a goal at the moment.

I like the idea of getting sent abuse as a motivation to get my stuff done (please). I have a year long project goal that I posted up in the DCM forum which was to get to four fully useable and painted fleets for B5 ACTA. This is going to have to change however as I sold one of them to my brother, so now I am going to get three bigger fleets done.

Spoiler:

ISA. 12/31 done.
Sharlin. Done.
10x Whitestars. 6x Done.
8x Nial Fighters. 4x done.
1x Minbari flyer. done.
2x Whitestar gunships.
5x Bluestar proxies.
4x Whitestar fighters.

EA. 5/43 done.
3x Omega. 2x Done.
1x Nova. Done.
5x Hyperion. 2x done.
2x Hermes.
2x Oracle.
1x Warlock proxy.
3x Olympus proxies.
10x Thunderbolt fighter.
15x Starfury.

Narn. 16/33 done.
3x G'Quan. 2x Done.
2x Thentus. Done.
2x Var'Nic. Done.
2x T"Rakk.
1x Dag'Kar. Done.
1x Sho'Kar.
1x G'Karith.
15x Frazi. 12x Done.
1x G'Vrahn.
4x Gorith fighters.
1x Bin'Tak.

33/107 done.


That's my to do list and I am pretty much a third of the way through, currently in progress is my Warlock proxy, 4x starfury, 1x Orcale and 2x Hermes. They are all base coated.

I managed to make a flying start to the year but ran out of steam the month before last and have since done very, very little.

I agreed with a mate that we will both paint one decent sized unit every 2 weeks or have to paint a basic troop for the other as a penalty (or we keep a point score which gets used for rerolls)

I know that jerk is going to give me harles, so I am NOT going to lose that one

Oh yeah, I definetely need pressure when it comes to our hobby.

My current project: AoS Nurgle

Have a game Friday night, and lacking a few point for a 2000pts game, my objectives this week:
- assemble as many Endless Spells as I can before Friday
- clear mould lines from the 6 Nurgling Bases I just blu-tacked together for the game

Not gonna post my backlog, because that's clearly crazy.

I already have a deadline but writing it out definitely helps. aribrushing really saves me time but finding time at all is the current obstacle.

Current Goal: Finish 1500 pts dark angels army by end of August

Units to Assemble and Prime:
6 man inceptor squad (in progress)
Azrael
jump pack captain
dark shroud

Items to paint:
three five man scout squads
one predator
10 man hellblaster squad
primaris ancient
all the bases ever

Blood-Drenched Death Company Marine

I'll jump in too if I may.

Current projects in-process:

Finish a Death Company marine (Jump pack left to finish & attach to complete the model)

Finish a Death Company Dreadnought (Legs and base are finished and assembled, currently working on the torso now, then arms to complete the mini).

Start my Sanguinary Guard Ancient (bare plastic, un-assembled)

Two more jump pack death company marines (to bring the squad to 10 models strong).

Five tactical marines (to bring the current 5 man squad up to 10 models strong).

A Storm Raven (which was a gift from a friend)

Two Razorbacks

A Predator tank (Another gift)

And lastly, a Knight. Past that, I've got a smattering of other projects I could fit in, such as a power armored jump pack equipped Lieutenant kitbash I'm planning but haven't actually started yet.

That's my list. Take it easy.

I'm in. Not going to list my backlog as it's truly terrifying and would take all the time I should be hobbying.

Current goal:
25 cultists painted by Saturday afternoon.
They are currently cleaned built and based.
I hope to prime and preshade them today.

I'll join, although with a baby due any minute (quite literally) I'm not sure how often I'll be making progress.

I'm currently working on a 1k Scion army for 8th ed, 35 bodies and three taurox. All built and primed, all bodies have had their armour panels painted, and I've started on their fatigues.



Looking forward to seeing how everyone's project progresses.

Right. I'm in.

I've had a bunch of guard tanks sitting about for too long. I've got 3 weeks with the family away so my aim is to get my armoured fist table ready by the time they cone back. Also Necromunda terrain to get the basic scheme to be on.

I brush painted 3 of them ages ago. 1 russ, 1 chimera and one hydra. I now have an airbrush so plan to use the same scheme as before but with slightly less well defined camo pattern lines

Original scheme




New variant


And group shot.


So stuff list:

1 Russ with a choice of weapons
3 chimeras
1 hydra
1 converted Destroyer
And a bloody great Baneblade that I had forgotten all about!

Let's see where I get to.

I know how you feel. Mine was born this week. That’s why I didn’t post.

But in between helping the wife. I am finishing up 3 promethium pipe relays and two of the boxes of containers and the associated bits and bobs.

Ok this sounds interesting to me. I naturally have a bad lazy streak which is my own worse enemy when it comes to painting and modelling. Anything that can keep me motivated and focused for a while is a push in the right direction.

I am going to start easy on myself and hopefully you eyes when (if) it gets completed. Not done much for many a year so more then a bit rusty when it comes to holding a brush and using it as a deadly weapon.

Found a little model which is very amusing. I will go with the game Malifaux on this one. It's a young Lacroix from The Kin crew. He's a bit cheeky but the subject matter is a bit unusual and makes me laugh.

Ok people first week is over lets hear how you've all done (some have already been updating of course - SkylarkR6 you seem to be blazing along!)

My plans changed this week;

1 Bloodwrack Shrine
1 Hag Queen
1 Slaughter Queen
5 Melusai


That was my original plan, however having clipped bits out and started to see the Shrine go together I've decided to put it on hold till I can paint up parts of it before final assembly. The rear section with the rune in a stone hand and a fair few other areas are just going to be hard to do if its all stuck together.

Instead I started work on my Witch Aelves and got 12 finished and assembled (headless but head and hair assembled to make painting easier).

I've also clipped out and sorted out all the parts for the remaining 8 Witches and 10 Melusai. I would have done more but the last two days the heat has been nuts here and its just sapped all my energy/enthusiasm to clean off mould lines.

So lagging a bit but I hope to get the Melusai and witches done before the end of this week.
