Evening all - let's try this plog thing again, shall we?

My name is Dysartes, and I'm a tabletop standard painter. No excuses there, I know my level, and I have more of a focus on volume than improving, really. However, I do a miniature painting stream on Twitch, normally three times a week - feel free to drop in if you get chance.

I'm going to be using this plog to chronicle what I paint during 2019. I have a whole bunch of goals for the year, with the major one being to complete a model a day over the course of 2019 - if I can exceed the 367 I managed in 2018, even better.

Today marked my first stream of the year, after being offline (for Twitch, at least) for the festive period. My aim was to wrap up - or at least progress - some of the models which were left as WIP when I finished in December. Here's what was worked on today:

WIP

An old school Catachan Lieutenant, from 2nd edition. I'm hoping to finish him off next time out. A few washes required, along with some detail work (cigar and armour, mainly).


Ko-Tun Feralo, a hero for Imperial Assault. Lots of small bits on this model today, also hoping to complete this one on Tuesday.


Loku Kanoloa, another hero for Imperial Assault. Need to figure out Man Calamari skin before I can finish this model off.


An old school Tallarn Lieutenant, also from 2nd edition. Need to make my mine up on robe colours, as well as doing detail work on the armour.


Navigator's Guild goal marker, for Guild Ball. Didn't do a huge amount today, just started to basecoat the background of the compass with Celestra Grey.


Buckwheat, a Farmer's Guild mascot for Guild Ball. Made use of some spare Parasite Brown to basecoat the flag. Again, not huge progress, but progress nonetheless.

Finished

Wander, the Navigator's Guild mascot from Guild Ball. My image search history now includes "Albatross tongue"...


Mak Eshka'rey, a hero from Imperial Assault. I may have to redo this picture with a different background, as I'm sure he isn't this dark in real life.

2 models down, 363 to go...

Could always rely on you to provide a varied diet of figures. Good luck with beating last year's total.

One a day seems an insane amount to the likes of myself, who generally struggles to get double figures in a year

Thanks monkeytroll - last year I managed to paint models from 17 games, and 15 manufacturers, so variety it one thing I aim for

I find that because I've committed to do 3 streams a week, for a total of around 10 hours a week, I get quite a bit done. The structure of the schedule keeps me focused, as does bouncing between different models rather than just concentrating on one - saves me getting bored.

That is a bold plan and aggressive target Dysartes. I managed 75 last year and considered that a good year.

Good luck,

CB

Thanks Captain - I tracked what I painted last year, which is how I know I hit the 367, so I know the model/day goal is doable. With a bit more planning, and careful use of off-stream time to prep, I think it is a viable target again - just need to catch up with the year and then get ahead of the game

Of course, work deciding I need to be away on Thursday - and therefore missing a stream - isn't going to help matters

First Tuesday night stream out of the way - fairly quiet in terms of people in the chat, but that arguably means I can concentrate more on getting things done

It occurs to me I haven't posted my standard schedule - I'm usually on Twitch 7-10pm GMT (or BST) on a Tuesday and Thursday evening, and on 12-4pm on a Sunday. As noted in my last post, though, I won't be on this Thursday due to a work commitment

Hopefully I can get some building done in my hotel room.

WIP

Navigator's Guild goal marker - worked up the compass aspect a bit more. Next time I'm painting will see some of the silver turn gold, via Seraphim Sepia. Looks like I don't need to tidy up the background too much, which is handy - getting a smooth Ulthuan Grey can be... "fun".


Tallarn Officer - added some more metallic sections. Still need to figure out the robes.


Peck - Farmer's Guild mascot. As the hens have been done previously, tonight I was working on Peck himself. Not the best angle for the picture, thinking about it. Some shading, some metallics, and maybe a touch of Coal Black required.

Complete

Catachan Officer - sorted out the gold, tidied up other bits and pieces, painted the cigar. Job done.


Ko-tun Feralo, Quartermaster - mostly applying washes and some metallic spot colour, then more washes.

Goal Progress
4/365 models completed (3 games, 3 manufacturers)
21/1000 points of Imperium completed
15 currently owned Imperial Assault figures to finish

I’ll have to check your streams as I’ve started to pick up Guildball stuff including the daughters of the falcon set today. Lovely paint jobs.

Thanks Theophony - I've made it a goal to paint at least one full team box this year, though at the minute I seem to be bouncing between figures from different teams...

Might even start a rookie tomorrow.

So, I missed a stream because I was away for work, but that doesn't mean I didn't get any hobbying done. I'd carefully packed a kit of things to get some building done whilst in my hotel room:


I didn't get as much as I could've built done, mainly as the needle for my poly cement got gunked up. Even so, I got these done:


12 ETB Poxwalkers and a Nurgle Herald (or whatever he is actually called these days) - no bases yet, as I'll be building some of my urban bases for them, so they work as opposition for my Guard.

Daring goal, but considering how many you finished last year that totally sounds doable.
Will be interesting to see minis from so many different ranges.

Paintjobs look good too, especially when the speed is taken into account.

I wish you good luck!

Thanks Ezki - I didn't want to go over the top with the basic volume goal for the year, though I did give myself a stretch goal which would be a bit more difficult.

Another Sunday stream wrapped up earlier, with two more models finished, and two almost finished, which I consider good progress. I'm hoping to undercoat a batch of models to give me plenty to deal with on Tuesday.

WIP

Diala Passil, Twi'lek Jedi from Imperial Assault. Considering she hadn't been started at the beginning of the stream, I'm pretty happy with where she ended it. Need to add Soulstone Blue to the lightsaber blade, and do some tidying up, but she can be wrapped up next time out.


Navigator's Guild Goal Marker - needs a shade on the wooden wheel, and maybe a little tidy-up of the Ulthuan Grey background to the compass. I'm happy with how the compass is looking, though.

Complete
I will probably try these pics again once I find where the black backdrop wandered off to.


Loku Kanaloa, Imperial Assault


Peck, Guild Ball Mascot

Goal Progress
6/365 models completed (3 games, 3 manufacturers)
14 currently owned Imperial Assault figures to finish

Dysartes,

You are slipping...only 6 models in 14 days. You have to pick-up the pace.

Cheers,

So, another Tuesday, another stream. In getting ready for this evening, I undercoated 10 more models, ready to start them after I finished off Diala and the goal marker.

WIP

Rookie Seenah, Hunter's Guild, Guild Ball - early days on the bear, with the base taken care of separately. Given the amount of fur, more drybrushing required!


Grot Scuttling - First of the models from my Silver Tower set to be worked on. Decided on a scheme for the bases (though it needs one more highlight), and basecoated the robe/cape with German Grey.


Poxbringer - Again, worked up the base for this guy, as I don't want to drybrush grey over the green if I work on him the other way around. Some research required on the guts.

Completed
I'm not overly happy with either pic, but have yet to find my other backgrounds.


Diala Passil - despite a near-disaster with the Soulstone Blue, managed to get her lightsaber looking respectable.


Navigator's Guild Goal Marker

Goal Progress
8/365 models completed (3 games, 3 manufacturers)
13 currently owned Imperial Assault figures to finish

Another day, another stream - and tonight marked the return of Theme Thursdays. Which I began to regret when the anime music started to come out :(

Didn't get anything finished tonight, but made some progress on the WIPs.

I'm also working on some Poxwalker bases, which I'll use by a step-by-step on how I'm doing the sort of bases you can see on the Poxbringer.

WIP

Poxbringer - used washes to build up the skin and horns, then picked out the hair on the severed head with German Grey, and re-undercoated areas I know will be metallic with a Warcolours black undercoat.


Rookie Seenah - Should be able to finish the bear off on Sunday. Need to tidy up a couple of splodges on the horns (one of which is quite visible here).


Grot Scuttling - Maybe I should've basecoated the skin before carrying on with the robe. Got the first coat of skin down on six of them, as well as drybrushing some highlights on the robe and washing with with Nuln Oil.

Thanks Captain - and having just cracked open my copy of the Resident Evil 2 board game (and expansions), I can see opportunities there to speed up. Painting board game zombies (or four different Leon sculpts) should be time efficient.

I do need to go through what I have for it, and figure out an efficient way of storing it, though, as some of the expansion boxes are fairly empty.

Another Sunday stream down - only got one model finished, but made decent progress on another.

Had prepared 8 more models, and two of them sort of got started today - still need to find the background for my lightbox, though.

WIP

Poxwalker - got a lot done on him today. Quite happy with the Nurgling - may need to do a Plaguebearer unit in that scheme.


Grot Scuttling - one of the 8 currently being worked on. Not looking forwards to the web details on the robe.


Wildcat Warrior - just started on the base today. This guy will be becoming Bagpuss down the line.


Mouse Knight - as with the Wildcat, just started on the base.

Completed

Rookie Seenah - Hunter's Guild, Guild Ball

Goal Progress
9/365 models completed (3 games, 3 manufacturers)

Well, that was useful - looked somewhere I didn't think I'd put the bag with the other backgrounds for my photo booth in, and managed to find them.

So I've taken new pictures of the nine models I've found this year - some are better than on a white background, some aren't.

Here they are, in the same order I posted them initially:

Completed - Reshoot

Wander - I think I prefer the white background here.


Mak Eshka'rey


Catachan Officer - I think the white worked better here.


Ko-tun Feralo


Loku Kanaloa


Peck


Diala Passil


Navigator's Guild Goal Marker


Rookie Seenah

Dysartes,

I am not certain that background works, some of the lighter models get lost in the background scatter.

Just an observation.

Evening Captain,

Frankly, I'm not currently too happy with either the white or the black - it may be I need to use the black for darker models (such as Seenah), and the white for lighter ones (like Wander or the Catachan, oddly).

I also want to try with the models further back from the LEDs, and see if that helps.

Wow, took a week long break and so much to catch up on!
Good job.

I think moving the models away from the light might be a good idea, as some models are a bit over saturated. Or it's the camera settings.
Anyway, it's something I struggle with all the time.
