Title: 100 Days of Hobby 2020 ...
Post by: GamesPoet on April 29, 2020, 11:01:41 PM
In 2015, I heard of a professor of some class would assign her students at the beginning of it to pick something that they would do for 100 days in a row, and then provide a paper at the end of the class on how it impacted their life.  So ... that summer I started and completed a 100 Days of Painting effort.  Each day I did some painting of military miniatures, and although it wasn't easy, some days I had to squeak it in at the last moment before heading off to bed, but it did change the number of figures I had started and completed, and generally speaking was often a good way to relax.

So ... I'm considering starting on this upcoming Friday evening, May 1st to begin 100 Days of Hobby.

The difference will be to not just limit it to painting figures, but instead do something with the hobby ... build, construct, convert, game, make scenery, paint, research historical topics for colors, uniforms, scenarios, or even write fluff ... yet do something every day for 100 days in a row, and keep track of it to see my progress.

Anybody else interested in joining me on this???

Yes! The insanity should start to slow down by months end. Then just controlled chaos. Let the 100 days begin!

Ok .. well that at least starts this off with two of us.  Ya know what they say about 3? Its a crowd.  So ... anybody else?

I would love too, but just can't plan every day in for something due to work and family commitments.. I'm glad if I even get 3 evenings and/or 1 afternoon in the weekend in per week, but usually 2 evenings is the norm.
Title: Re: 100 Days of Hobby???
Post by: GamesPoet on April 30, 2020, 11:41:15 AM
Well the idea is to stretch beyond the norm, and have a positive impact on our life.  A stretch can be a challenge, yet achievable, and bring positive change, a foundation for more peace and joy.

So ... if a person normally gets in 2 days a week of hobby, and they set a goal to do 3 days per week for the next 14 weeks or so, that means 50% more hobby time than normally, and I support that!  28 days vs. 42 days ... go, go, go! :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

Well with GP, Artoban, Rowsdower and maybe SKS going for 3 days a week, looks like we officially have a crowd. :icon_cool:

Now we need a movement!  So join up today! It is the last day before we start tomorrow.

I have been doing some hobby things on and off, over the last several weeks, but today I am officially not going to do anything hobby related so that this Friday, May 1st, will be my first day of 100 Days of Hobby (2020 edition).

I'm actually resisting doing anything hobby today, because my enthusiasm for doing something seems high. :icon_lol:

So ... Day 1 of 100 Days of Hobby has arrived!

With so many ideas for projects and such, I got to decide what is going to be done first. :icon_wink: :icon_lol:
Title: Re: 100 Days of Hobby 2020 ...
Post by: Padre on May 01, 2020, 06:28:13 PM
The 100 days begin.

Once I've based some completed figures, the following is where I (think) I am going:

1. I need to complete these chatting and walking dudes, but I might have to hold off until I know which story they will be used in, then I can get their liveries correct!

(https://i.imgur.com/9u4sbsG.jpg)

2. Paint the wine wagon's horse ...

(https://i.imgur.com/Rj0U2Eu.jpg)

3. Paint 35 Halfling pike currently part done ...

(https://i.imgur.com/BUOO5pa.jpg)

4. Paint a huge cannon. Not sure which city state will find this at the back of its arsenal!

(https://i.imgur.com/gQ5E3FG.jpg)

5. Paint these pirate gunners, so that all the ones on the guns look more obviously like they belong there ...

(https://i.imgur.com/iqnRe8r.jpg)

6. Paint 30 of these - mercenary Estalian swordsmen ...

(https://i.imgur.com/0GEhK78.jpg)

There's more in my boxes, but the above have at least been started. I keep getting distracted by the needs of particular stories and thus painting and modelling for those instead.

Post by: GamesPoet on May 01, 2020, 06:41:38 PM
That's awesome that you've set up the queue! :::cheers:::

Here are some ideas I have going for this ...

Go thru all my paints for seeing what I might order.
Complete WotRs list of nobles, their liveries, and their badges for 1st battle of St. Albans and Blore Heath.
Paint 8mm Perry Napoleonics.
Clean and paint 20 Border Reiver figures.
Finish gluing Tower back together for use with Border Reivers, and maybe fantasy too.
Start constructing more 28mm Perry WotRs and Euro Mercs, prime them, and get busy painting them for use with Lion Rampant.
Organize ACW figures into units to use with the rules called Longstreet and get cleaning, constructing, and painting them.
Clean, prime, and paint 28mm AW French & INdian War figures for Rebels and Patriots.
Organize my WFB Empire figures and see what can get completed.
Make some scenery pieces for all sorts of uses.
Get in some more games via Zoom.
Set up a campaign idea or two for reason to make scenery and play games.
Create table maps for a 1st Battle of St. Albans campaign.
Create scenery for a Blore Heath scenario.

And who knows what else I might come up with along the way.

First day didnt go as good as expected, but I still manage to get a general idea of how many models I have, and how many paints. Sadly a lot of paints should be thrown away, mistakes that I did when I first started painting. Live and learn.
Title: Re: 100 Days of Hobby 2020 ...

Yes, I need to get cracking on those paints too! And that is going to happen today for me as my starting project for the hobby. :::cheers:::

Wait - open the pot - put in a little water and leave it for a day or so.
Then see if it will stir up - you can add more water.

The water should soak into the dried out paint., and you can reclaim them quite often.

I use one of those plastic medicine double-ended spoons.  It dispenses 5ml from the small end and 10ml from the large end.
Depending on how much paint is in the pot you can use either end.
You can be 'generous' with the water - if your paint ends up a bit thin, then you can just do more coats.

Cheaper than buying new paints.







I am tempted to join you guys - I have done a variety of bits for the last 3 days running, but not sure if I want to make the long haul.
First real order of priority is setting up a photo account - GP and Steg suggested Wordpress and a couple of others have said Imgur - if I can sort that out this weekend I might give it a go.

Going to work on some of my dwarfs (longbeard standins) just to say I started this project doing something 😺

Last weekend I got onto my old Wordpress site.  Succeeded in uploading pictures, and had a friend review with me how to get those pictures on to the posts of my website, and on to a site like W-E.  So hopefully as this 100 Days of Hobby proceeds I'll be able to get some photos going too!

- - - - - -

Getting dinner, and then heading for those paints to get them reviewed and organized.  Might even sneak in some painting tonight, but we'll see how things go.  I'm also leaning towards getting some WFB figures out, sorted, and start reviewing what projects I want to make some head way on with those.  I think this is going to be a bit about going with the flow of what I get motivated to do, and as certain items peak my interest, full speed ahead I will go.

So I'll tally up my workings I managed to do. So here goes..

Week 1
May 1st:
- Started making a reference sheet of the Salamanders for Benthe to cope with all the rules (in dutch with keeping the english names), did the overal rules and a first unit and let her review it.
- Painted some more Salamanders with Benthe, she did some bases in red as foundation for the lava and I put on a first layer of the lighter green on 1 Inceptor and glued another to its flying stand
- Painted the Noxious Blightbringer to an almost finished stage

Finished my missing squig.  Still a few things left on the dwarfs but some paint was spilled so something happened this first of 100.
The photo is really dark but it would require me to go all the way downstairs and take another pic. So....no.

Yes! I'm planning on recording what gets done along the way too.  And congrats on doing some more with your daughter!

Here goes my first report ...

Day 1. Organized all my paints, and found I have a few colors to order. Glued more of a tower together that I bought a few years back, but had broken in transport.  Glued the muzzle of a 15mm WW2 German Self-propelled gun for a nephew, and fixed a small bi-plane for another nephew.  Glued on an arm for a 28mm WotRs figure that I'd not completed further back. These items were all sitting in the same spot and it was just time to do them.  I also used a pin drill to create a hole for a 54mm caisson wheel to be attached for another nephew, although still not sure how I'm going to make that happen yet.

On Saturday, I got a game planned with a nephew over Zoom for the evening, but might sneak in something else in the morning, we'll see.

Week 1:
May 1st:
I continued working on my Warcry Warband, some undead. The necromancer is almost finished, as are some extra skellies.
I might look after and an other ghost like figure, to make the difference in troop types.

Title: Re: 100 Days of Hobby 2020 ...
Post by: Midaski on May 02, 2020, 03:18:53 PM
Well I did something yesterday

Day 1
Glued some fence pieces from the Fortified Manor set to a piece of mdf board.
Cut some Renedra Tents from their sprues and then did a bit of historical exploration as to which time periods, Bell, Ridge, Dog etc fit best, and then played about with how best to lay them out on a base for gaming purposes.


Day 2
Found my 'Machinations' thread and started the tortuous process of finding all the photos I have used in it - all with photobucket.
Currently I have put them into a separate folder on my PC and numerically renamed them so I can upload them to a new host and replace them easily.

It is a mere 4 pages long and it is annoying me greatly - how Padre had the patience to redo his Tilean Campaign thread is beyond me.  :icon_twisted:

Day 1 and 2 have been a success working on my secret Christmas project for my friends. All the models are built and completed, with 90% of them basecoated and the first few colours on.

At some point I need to sit down to write the fluff blurbs for the project, and the 11 different models/units.

Count me in!

I'll do 5 days per week, till August 8. That's 71.5 days of working with miniatures. Maybe around 100 hours. Mostly gonna concentrate on prepping& painting minis, with less building & terrain.

(The devil called Wisdom whispers to my ear that 7 days a week would be stretching it too much, with kids & stuff. I also need to count in days out of home. If we're allowed out, that is...)

Incidentally, I started on May 1, without knowing of this challenge. Here is what I've started and finished in two intensive days:

(https://scontent.fhel1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/95623946_10157426409943262_4193982221050183680_n.jpg?_nc_cat=107&_nc_sid=825194&_nc_ohc=Z5n1sZHrKwMAX8nqNqi&_nc_ht=scontent.fhel1-1.fna&oh=2adc6ff98fd58df44a763268d556d015&oe=5ED4BAD1)

Today, I plan to finish a unit of pikemen. Just adding grass & some highlights. Oh, it seems they also need a banner, and that needs some GS work. OK, this is gonna take some two or three days, plus a day-in-between. So expect something ready by Wednesday.

After that, my immediate working space is getting empty of figurines.  :icon_eek: But my unfinished ranks & projects on the shelves will serve this challenge well. :)

I'll drink some of it tonight and tell you what it is like. I like to imagine it's a nice Rioja (Reserva) or perhaps a claret (i.e. Bordeaux)? They're my favourites. But it is more likely to be a Chianti, what with it being a Tilean Wine Wagon.

I have some carts and wagons and such that need painting, perhaps I will fit them into the queue at some point.  Besides I need them for a set up of wagons for my Blore Heath scenario.  The Yorkists commanded by Salisbury created a "fort" of them to anchor his right flank and put some cannon inside them, and I have some medieval era and early renaissance cannon I need to finish painting as well.

I found some many minis I didn't know I had and in boxes that could easily had been thrown away. Minis don't weigh much and are in old boxes that should be thrown away. I am glad I am doing this. I also decided to get my painting stuff closer to me, and not in the attic. Mrs. Realjuan may join me by playing guitar for 100 days.
When the idea first popped into my head, my mind played tricks on me and I was finding it difficult to commit, but yes, I'm glad I am doing this.

I recall from my 100 Days of painting back in 2015 significantly advancing my number of painted figures, and how glad I was when it was done.  At that time a took a day or two, maybe three at the most off and went right back into doing more painting.  It was a good time.  And ... good to know that this is impacting your wife to decide to play the guitar for 100 days in a row, excellent.

For Everyone ... remember, it is possible for a person to miss a day, crud happens.  Last time I had a friend of mine who kept going with me all the way up to Day 98, and then missed.  He just kept going on Day 99 and Day 100 anyway, because no one is going to complain about 99 out of 100.  Or for that matter 95 out of 100, or 90 out of 100, or 50 out of 100, if it is all more than a person might regularly do.

Speaking of which ... Zygmund, welcome aboard! I included you on both below ... :::cheers::: ...

Oh and by the way ... for me, Day 2 featured ... a game of Lion Rampant with a nephew over Zoom.  Final score was 14 to 12, so I obtained a slight victory this time compared to the complete shellacing I got two weeks ago.  We altered the scenario from last time, giving each side one less infantry unit, and one extra mounted sergeant unit.  He actually had 25 points to my 24 points, and hoping to figure out a way I can even the points for the scenario in time for an on line convention.  Plus we had an all cavalry fight on one flank, with crossbows, infantry, and bidowers on the other flank.  We both had fun! :icon_cool: :icon_biggrin:

And ... I almost finished the stone tower that I am making for fantasy, medievals, and my Border Reivers.  The last brick was a real bitch to fit into the wall.  I left the ground floor drying its glue over night, and still need to find a way to fit it into the first floor at some point.  Not looking forward to that effort, maybe today.

I also got in a little more organizing in the hobby room.  Found two boxes that didn't have hobby things in them, and those got booted to my home office area in the living room.  Getting closer to being ready for some painting, although need to get my web site and pictures working if possible, too.  We'll see what happens as the moments arise.

On to Day 3!

Just noticed that in the last 2 days I got paints organized, tower almost done, 3 of 4 little repair bits done, a game completed, and some more hobby room organizing.  That is probaly more than I would have if I hadn't started this 100 Days of Hobby.  :icon_cool:

Glued some Oathmark Goblins together.
Hunted for some rider legs suitable for Halflings - I have torsos and some 15 very interesting mounts, and 10 GW Goblin Wolf Rider legs, so I am 5 short.
I went hunting for my WK Dwarf cavalry, and other existing Halfling cavalry or figures I might be able to adapt.
Found a few bits, but I think somewhere there are more.  :closed-eyes:

However Hobby Time has been hindered by Skype family conversations* and peacemaking activity and now it is time for a shower and Film Night - I believe it is 'Black Panther' tonight.

Day 3 - 9 days straight but still time for the important things!
Except for the bases (200 on order - nothing delivered) another batch of longbeard subs. I spilled out an overload of brown so I hit every dwarf with it so it wouldnít be wasted.

Day 3 - Glued some 150 tufts & painted a heraldic banner. Also figured out how to proceed without GS, ie. faster.  :-)

Since I took pictures, here they are:

Another small addition

Week 1
May 1st:
- Started making a reference sheet of the Salamanders for Benthe to cope with all the rules (in dutch with keeping the english names), did the overal rules and a first unit and let her review it.
- Painted some more Salamanders with Benthe, she did some bases in red as foundation for the lava and I put on a first layer of the lighter green on 1 Inceptor and glued another to its flying stand
- Painted the Noxious Blightbringer to an almost finished stage
May 3rd:
- Completing the reference sheet with all the Primaris models she has. As I wanted to do a sheet on strategems also I noticed that the Salamnders Data Cards set doesn't include startegems for the generic Space Marines and that the Data Cards box I have is an old version. To bad the store didn't have the new one yet.

I like how SKS is keeping his list across a week, and maybe I'll do that too. :icon_cool:

Seeing there is a line of shingles on Artoban's well. :icon_wink:

I like that Zygmund's block of spearmen have mixed colors, and they came out nicely! :eusa_clap:

Padre's big cannon is defintiely coming along, and the freehand banner looks great! :::cheers:::

I was not as productive on Sunday as hoped.

But the project I started was some WFB figures that had been put out on a poster board a few years back.  The idea was to have them in my face, organized and ready to finish painting.  Alas they were in my face, yet never finished painting them.  And so they grew dusty.  When I moved they also became jumbled when transporting.  And so I have begun to clean them off, quite the chore, won't let this happen again.  They are also being organized on to a new poster board, to eventually finish painting them.  Or this time, put them away so they don't get so dusty.

Went back through the thread to combine my lists, and found my previous list of potential projects too.  It'll be interesting to see how much of those projects can get accomplished.

GP's Ongoing Tally ...

Day 1.  Organized my paints, found a few colors to order. Glued more of a tower together.  Glued the muzzle of a 15mm WW2 German Self-propelled gun for a nephew, and fixed a small bi-plane for another nephew.  Glued on an arm for a 28mm WotRs figure. Used a pin drill to create a hole for a 54mm caisson wheel to be attached for another nephew.

Day 2.  A game of Lion Rampant with a nephew over Zoom.  Almost finished gluing the stone tower together.  More organizing in the hobby room.

Day 3.  Started dusting off (literally) and re-organizing many partially painted WFB figures that had been sitting on a poster board for a few years back.  The idea was to have them in my face, organized and ready to finish painting.

Took a break at lunch and organized some figures on my "tea" cart. Top level ... Border Reivers, 4 Italian Medieval Knights, and Baron's War I figures.  2nd level ... 28mm ACW.  3rd level ... 1745 Jacobites and Govt. Troops.  Plan to return to the WFB figures this evening, although cleaning mold lines off the Border Reivers also needs to get done asap, so we'll see.

Is anyone else weirded out by the necks on the Forgotten worlds humans? They look find from a distance in pictures, but when building them the heads seem to stick out a bit weird. Kinda, floating I guess? I'm not sure the best way to phrase it.

But also, SWEET ARCHERS! I like the brown look you've got going for the armor.

So I stayed focused on dusting and organizing the jumble of unfinished WFB figures.  It was great revisiting all these figures.  Lots more to do on this mini-project, although looking forward to getting it all set up again.

A small update with me and this challenge:

Day 1-2
I did an update on my collection of paints and minis, and basically organize everything. This was a great activity and involve Mrs.Realjuan a little.

Day 3
Was re-hydrating my paints and having a painting Skype meeting with a friend. We both agree that is quiet enjoyable and we should do it even after the quarantine to keep up with some projects.

Day 4:
Still working on my paints (i do have more than I should) and a lot of the paints need to be switch into drop bottles.

Made up of battline icefall Yhetees, mournfang packs , frost sabres and gnoblars. Frostlord on a thundertusk, huskard on a thundertusk, icebrow hunter, firebelly and a butcher. Going to be fun.
Also researched a site that had PDFís for Dragon Rampant and Lion R for lists and quick reference.

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.

Sounds like a little fluff and list writing, way to go!

I got in a little fluff writing today, inspired by some music I was listening to at lunch time,  although more work to do on it before sharing.  Haven't done writing like that in too long.  And have done some work on cleaning off the mold lines of half the Border Reivers that I've got, so a little progress there.

Stayed away from the cleaning and organizing of those WFB figures.  I was inside the last few days, and it seems my allergies were acting up, yet the only thing I was breathing in that probably wasn't wise, seems to be the dust form those figures.  So decided to take time off from that amd let the body heal until I brave that project further.

Day 5 - rest.

I did sort through a pile of Landsknechts, which I mostly ended up trading with a friend for high medieval figures. So a little bit of miniature fingering there. But they were organized to start with, so in my books that's a rest day. :-)

...

Really inspiring to read what everyone is doing. So thanks for posting detailled reports! :-)

GP, I'm allergic too, mostly pollen, dust, and some foodstuffs. It's birch pollen time here, so I'm mostly staying indoors too. Ofcourse covid makes it easier this spring, as nobody expects me to go to places. But dusting off figures and applying static grass can get to the irritation level.

Day 4

Very poor day - enthusiasm seemed in short supply.

I took a large file (proper tool size) to a hill I have been making as a test run. I have covered it in filler (spackle?) and then while it is still wet stuck 60mm round bases wrapped in clingfilm into the surface to try and make an impression/indentation.
The idea being it will dry off and leave a 'hole' I can drop one of a number of different types of vegetation into.

However it is not working that well - because of the clingfilm the filler doesn't seem to dry as quickly as usual. When it does the round bases do not seem to fit in easily and I am having to use needle files to 'trim' round the impressions.

I may try using vaseline (petroleum jelly) on the next go. I used that successfully when making tassets with greenstuff moulds.

Anyway I did glue a few arms on to those goblins, and had a browse at Imgur and Wordpress


Day 5
More work on the Goblins - I have 2 boxes of 30 plastic infantry plus 8 metal figures, and one of 15 plastic cavalry plus 7 metal and have built all the cavalry, and have about 20 of the plastic infantry to go.
Did two standard bearers and a few archers.

Then I did what I told RealJuan to do, and checked out some paint pots - most of which needed some water to soak in. I will leave them for a couple of days.
Then I went back to a tub of Simple Green and scrubbed and picked paint off 10 or so more old metal figures I was given a while back.


Today I impatiently await the postman - I actually bought something on the weekend - my hobby knife/scalpel broke, so I ordered a new one and a copy of the new Sisters of Battle codex.
First hobby purchase since the virus stuff started - very unusual for me.  :engel:

I am inspired by others' efforts too, and appreciate being able to read, and learn thru the sharing.

Not sure when I will go back to the unjumbling and dusting after what happened with my allergies.  I may have to do a wee bit at a time each day to get that mini-project accomplished. Or else just go for the remaining work involved all at once, and get this ... wear a mask! Everyone that has any sense is doing that these days anyway.  :icon_wink: :icon_lol:

And I see Midaski had a low enthusiasm day, that is going to happen sometimes.  Yet him proceeding with small bits and bops is a good way to keep the string of days going, copngrats! :::cheers:::

As for buying ... I buy too much regularly, and this covid 19 crud hasn't improved the situation ... just picked up some more Mirliton Italian and German medieval cavalry over the other day, and they are now in route.

Week 1:
May 1st:
I continued working on my Warcry Warband, some undead. The necromancer is almost finished, as are some extra skellies.
I might look after and an other ghost like figure, to make the difference in troop types.

May 3th:

I worked a little further on my Warcry warband, it is coming along nicely. Slow but steady.
I also went through some miniatures, to look after some ghost type figures...

May 5th:
I finished 5 undead figures of the Warband, 5 more to go which are in different states of painting.
I also made a 1000points Age Of Sigmar list, with Goblins & Trolls.

This evening I will have to study some more, Tuesday 12/05 I have my delayed oral exam for Fire Safety Advisor.

 Touched up the archers and made some headway on some more thunderers.
Also looking at this 12 year old or so conversion of a cold one and a squig to make my homemade mangler cause I couldnít afford one back then. I said he broke his chains with his mate and was going solo. A bit of a stretch for sure. Iím thinking he may make a good Loonboss on a giant squig now. New base etc

Day 6  (May 6th)

Well I waited and I waited - no postman.

So I have got 3 units of Goblins on movement trays

- 20 spears + an SB
-15 Archers complete with quivers now.
- the 8 metal figs with 9 figs with hand weapons and an SB

I have 14 other figures based - 5 with archer arms, and the other 9 I need to decide what weapons to give them.
I'll probably divide  equally between spears and h/wpns.
Then I have to add shields to all the melee infantry.

To be honest it is boring as f**k  :biggriin:  - I am forcing myself to 'tidy up' the goblins, the figures in the Simple Green, and reclaim my paints, so my workbenches are clear before I go on to more interesting stuff.

Anyway it's 11.40am here - postman should appear on his round in the next 30 minutes or so - will he have my package?

For day six ... I didn't pick the fluff writing back up from Day 5, but I did complete the cleaning of the 20 Border Reivers.  Like Midaski's day, mine was definitely boring, although I pushed thru it.  Just not enough push though to get to the first 4 early to middle medieval age Italian cavalry I purchased a few weeks back from an outfit here in the States selling Mirliton's 25mm figures.  The cav won't be that bad compared to messing with the 28mm Border Reivers. Although I might await their other brethren, who I suspect will arrive in the next few days.  I also re-read some of the Lion Rampant rules last night in preparations for gamemastering another Norman vs. Italian game this Saturday between Gankom and Artoban respectively, via Zoom again, but will save that adventure for another thread.

By the way ... Zygmund, your day of minimal activity counts, sometimes it just happens.  And Artoban's mangler conversion from 12 years ago ... that is just crazy!  Looking forward to seeing the updated model.

Not much more progress on the nurgle beastmen.
The unit of plaguegors [or whatever the current terminology for them is] has hit a hurdle as I've converted them from 40k nurgle cultists. Cant have not-renaissance era goat monster getting around with the tattered remains of far future boiler suits on.
On the plus side, the first 3 of them are base coated.

The early 90's dragon ogre I acquired a few years ago needed a new right arm. Fortunately; I found one in the form of a spare rat ogre arm :it is comically oversized :biggriin:

After that, there should only be a few other odds and ends to fix up.

Day 7 - prepped a bunch of forest & draft animals, mostly for the kids to paint. It seems I'm unable to proceed with the pikeman unit, although it's so close to completion. Covid-lockdown with kids is hectic, painting the banner requires peace...

First week is complete!

I hear ya Zyg ... sometimes it is just tough to sink the mind into certain hobby things.  Yesterday mine was no dusting, no unjumbling, no organizing, no cleaning off mold lines.  Unfortunately no painting nor priming either.  However, I did do some research on Italians and Normands, and the big deal for me ... finished gluing the floor of the tower into the ground level, and the tower is now finished! Cahcoo! :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

I see Artoban was working on a tower as well.  And congrats to Rowsder for his efforts, yes! :icon_cool: :eusa_clap:

Padre ...  good to see you keeping a steady pace too.  :::cheers:::

I got priming, painting, and hopefully will begin gluing the first of many of my newest 28 Perry WotRs & Euro Mercs "scheduled". :icon_mrgreen:

Plus another game of Lion Rampant with Artoban and Gankom using Zoom ... need do set up for that too!  Maybe even work on my website so I can get some pictures rolling as well.

Day 5:
I started planning a transport box or just a storage box of the minis from Infinity Haqqislam. My idea is to make into a building with rooms and slowly fill it with details. I am not sure which materials to use so I took a long time looking for inspiration online. Its probably more a "planning" than a constructions but I did enjoy it a lot.

Day 6: I was working on a little fluff for my haqqislam minis and wrote a little time line. Most of the time was spend reading about haqqislam and other fan fictions that I could find online.

Day 7: New rules from Infinity which is the game that I tend or may play the most. Nice group in my area, but really competitive and since its also in german I am trying to get a good grip of rules in both languages so I can compete better when corona is over.

Day 8: Has not happen yet, but I am working a little bit more on either a Space Marine story or my haqqislam background.

2nd week going into this!

Week 1
May 1st:
- Started making a reference sheet of the Salamanders for Benthe to cope with all the rules (in dutch with keeping the english names), did the overal rules and a first unit and let her review it.
- Painted some more Salamanders with Benthe, she did some bases in red as foundation for the lava and I put on a first layer of the lighter green on 1 Inceptor and glued another to its flying stand
- Painted the Noxious Blightbringer to an almost finished stage
May 3rd:
- Completing the reference sheet with all the Primaris models she has. As I wanted to do a sheet on strategems also I noticed that the Salamnders Data Cards set doesn't include startegems for the generic Space Marines and that the Data Cards box I have is an old version. To bad the store didn't have the new one yet.
May 5th:
-Played a game of 40k with Benthe, at 775 vs 776 points Salamanders vs Death Guard a maelstrom game from the main book with the new set up rules, but cards the old way. 4 battlerounds and we called it on a 8-8 tie!


Week 2
May 8th:
-Painted a few (6) Salamander bases in it's base color (red) and put the 2nd layer of lighter green on the 2nd Inceptor and after that glued him to the flying stand (1 more to go). And started some work on a Lieutenant.
-Finished up the Noxious Blightbringer, and washed the base of the Malignant Plaguecaster and fixed the gaps in his right pauldron. He will be next to start on from my Death Guard army, after him only the Lord of Contagion and the Plagueburst Crawler to go!

Week 1:
May 1st:
I continued working on my Warcry Warband, some undead. The necromancer is almost finished, as are some extra skellies.
I might look after and an other ghost like figure, to make the difference in troop types.

May 3th:
I worked a little further on my Warcry warband, it is coming along nicely. Slow but steady.
I also went through some miniatures, to look after some ghost type figures...

May 5th:
I finished 5 undead figures of the Warband, 5 more to go which are in different states of painting.
I also made a 1000points Age Of Sigmar list, with Goblins & Trolls.

Week 2:
May 8th:
The mail-man arrived with some nice goodies. Some Freebooter miniatures, an old WHFB Troll and two books. The history of Armageddon and the old Storm of Chaos book.
I looked for all the slayer I could find and I think I can make a 2000pt army for them :-) So maybe next Bash, the slayers will return!
I also primed some other figures and dug up my Imperial Knight. So that I can finish him after my Warcry Warband.
My next plan is to finish first al the started miniatures, before I start something new (I have a bunch of started and unfinished miniatures...  :| )
I also ordered some 60mm bases on Ebay, to be able to use my Trolls in and AOS game.

May 9th:
-Painted a bit on a second Lieutenant and a base on Adrax.
-Splashed the first colour on the Malignent Plaguecaster.
-As it was a nice day today and from tomorrow it might go colder and rainy again I decided I wanted to prime the last models of my T'au standing army and the Plagueburst Crawler, I needed to pva glue some sand and rocks on the bases of the T'au for that so I did that first today and this evening I sprayed the models.

Friday may have been a wash but this morning was a blast. Had a zoom historical against Gankom with GP game master. 2 1/2 hrs of Lion Rampant. Great stuff. More to follow by GP

Yes, we had a great game today ... last time we had 24 point armies and 1 leader plus one piece of scenery, this time 30 point armies and 3 leaders with the same 24"x12" hill adding a road, a stream, and the Imagi-nations village of Civitae.  Results ... a leader on each side fled the field, a leader on each side died, the Normundians pulled off a win over the Papal Coalition of Dierollea, 23 to 16 ... and the Pope was not captured, escaping north towards the Vatican City of Rollan.  Full report will be provided in a different thread, once I succeed in being able to pull photos from my website, and once the report has been written.  We will be doing this up as a running fluff campaign, complete with a map of cities, towns, villages, roads, water ways, and other terrain, as well as characters, NPCs, army lists, background stories, and battle/game reports. Stay tuned to Warhammer-Empire for further developments.

- - - - - - - - - -

It is late, I am tired form a long day, and will need to provide our thread update on Sunday.

Thanks gentlemen for being involved with this!  It helps to have a team of folks moving full speed ahead on this 100 Days of Hobby project. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Day 7   -   May 7th

Glued some Goblins


Day 8    May 8th

VE Day - we had a 'street party' socially distancing outside and I had maybe a little too much red wine.

Luckily I had glued a few more goblin bits together in the morning.
And ordered some Cans of Black Spray, a Sisters Squad, a Repentia Squad, and another hobby knife. (I need one for my modelling desk, and one for my paint station/scenery area.)
 
Day 9     May 9th

Well my package finally turned up - on a Saturday! Which was a surprise as I had an email from Royal Mail saying they would not be delivering on weekends during the lockdown.

It was also lucky, as I was slightly the worse for wear after 12 miles on the exercise bike, and the red wine. I had been looking at the goblins in a very unfriendly way, but luckily the postman arrived, because without his intervention it might have been a 'nil' day.

As it was I unpacked the hobby knife which I then used to open the cellophane on the Sisters Codex which I then spent some time browsing.



Today it's Sunday and I am going to finish those damned Goblins - get them 'made' and into the queue for undercoating.

Day 9: more work on my fluff, but included a little bit of reading my inspiration novel. A little bit of cheating here.

Day 10:
Friend coming for painting, board games, and some seafood curry. I think that would be at least 2 hours of mini work done today + Even more mini organization from the attic. They keep showing up.

Title: Re: 100 Days of Hobby 2020 ... And a big dilemma
Post by: Zygmund on May 11, 2020, 09:48:52 AM
Days 8, 9, 10 - really mixed feelings about what I 'accomplished'. Primed one banner on day 8 - yes ONE fricking BANNER. But fingered a lot of minis over the weekend as I took photos and packed stuff to sell. And organized my painted miniatures photo gallery - maybe to some day post the photos somewhere.

Just realized that I don't have place to put my painted minis anymore. Instead of a pile of unpainted minis, I now have a pile of painted minis on my desk, and they're not moving forward. It has been my principle that painted minis go to display, and stay on display. Filling those showcases has been a joy.

But what can I do now when they're filled? There's no room in our house to showcase more, unless I negotiate hard & build the showcases on the walls. Time to storage some? Which ones? How do you decide such matters?

I love each and everyone of the minis! Just looking at them is a great joy and a great motivation to paint more. If I storage an army, say the Dwarfs, am I going to paint more without seeing the finished ones?

Thatís a dilemma Zyg. Any chance of another cabinet?

Theoretically, perhaps.

In practice we live in a flat in a blockhouse, and I have two growing kids who need their space too, and storage is a growing problem. My family is really positive and accepting with my miniature (painting) hobby, I have the minis in our living room shelf-turned-cabinet, and we play with the (plastic) minis with the kids. So they're a centerpiece in many different ways.

Just don't know if I can rearrange a new cabinet in the shelf. Maybe it's time to remove some books? But I love my reference library too! Oh my... I'm probably spoiled.  :lol:

Reached my 1000th painted mini early this month, I think. The quantity starts to bear...

A few days lost there. RL rubbishness to blame.

I have, however, moved the campaign on a bit with GM-player communications, made some headway on the dwarf standard bearer and his strange friend, started putting together a 'scene' (i.e. piling rocks for the side of a mountain pass) for a new picture story, and also this ...

(https://i.imgur.com/ijw9yUG.jpg)

... being some ancient 1987 lead skellies, which just look fun and will surely populate the background of a picture along the way. Also some old second hand skeleton horses which I am gonna team up as shown and have pull the carroccio the undead captured in a previous battle. I will have to add some grisliness to the carroccio and it will function, as an extra-strength corpse cart, serving (as it did when they were alive!) the Disciplinati di Morr, now zombies!

Got my first painting in for this 100 Days of Hobby! Just some flesh on 17 spearmen, yet I'm glad to be back with a brush in hand.  Also expanded the spread sheet for keeping track of army lists for the Imagi-Nations campaign that Artoban, Gankom and I are doing.  Plus began expanding the fluff a bit with names, regions, colors, etc.  Much more to do on all of this.  Oh, and primed 4 Italian cavalry, too.

Day 11  -    May 11th

Monday I made Day 11 GP   :icon_question:

During which I got those damned goblins based with filler to hide the model built-in base - all 60 infantry of them.

All of them plus the wolf cavalry now reside in their own box awaiting undercoating.

Week 1:
May 1st:
I continued working on my Warcry Warband, some undead. The necromancer is almost finished, as are some extra skellies.
I might look after and an other ghost like figure, to make the difference in troop types.

May 3th:
I worked a little further on my Warcry warband, it is coming along nicely. Slow but steady.
I also went through some miniatures, to look after some ghost type figures...

May 5th:
I finished 5 undead figures of the Warband, 5 more to go which are in different states of painting.
I also made a 1000points Age Of Sigmar list, with Goblins & Trolls.

Week 2:
May 8th:
The mail-man arrived with some nice goodies. Some Freebooter miniatures, an old WHFB Troll and two books. The history of Armageddon and the old Storm of Chaos book.
I looked for all the slayer I could find and I think I can make a 2000pt army for them :-) So maybe next Bash, the slayers will return!
I also primed some other figures and dug up my Imperial Knight. So that I can finish him after my Warcry Warband.
My next plan is to finish first al the started miniatures, before I start something new (I have a bunch of started and unfinished miniatures...  :| )
I also ordered some 60mm bases on Ebay, to be able to use my Trolls in and AOS game.

May 9th:
I worked some more on those damn undead.

May 12th:
I started again on the undead.
But then my thoughts started drifting away. I started looking for one figure, that I know I have somewhere.
It is an old Necromunda Spyrer, that I want to use as and assassin in my Imperial Guard army.
I found many other figures, that I forgot that are still in my collection, but the one I was looking for didn't show up...

Got in another day with some painting in it ... started doing armor and shields on 6 of 17 spearmen.  Also, fleshed out a couple of emails on the campaign that Artoban, Gankom and I have begun, after having finished the spreadsheet I'd promised to them.  Ended up doing two spreadsheets, one with full statistics of what happened with our game/battle last weekend (not something I'm going to use except after games are completed), and a partial stats list which can be used between games for tracking size of armies developed and such (which can be used individually with the players as part of the between game campaigning.

I'm very much enjoying what SKS and Novogrod are doing with keeping track of their efforts.  I need to go back and review and update my list.

Also, noticed that my painting seems to be relatively slow.  If I'm going to get some serious painting accomplished, then I may need to start painting every day as I move forward or else I won't have accomplished the completion of many minis if I don't.

I keep looking at the tons of WotRs sprues sitting on a table, and knowing they ain't going to get done if I don't start them, and then probably need to do a little bit in a steady process.  And I started doing some painting on Monday, and may need to start painting a little every day to see what I can get painted over this entire effort too.

I'm doing stuff each day, but generally reporting every few. Especially because its all pretty minor stuff.

May 11th- Built 5 skellies.

May 12th,- Built and started painting 3 sisters of battle. Wrote fluff up for new homebrew sisters order to fit into my homebrew sector. Likewise wrote fluff for 4 new captains joining my kingdom.

May 13th- continued the fluff writing. Stared at models for ages planning out next stuff. Lovingly handled several of them, gazing at them with appreciation before remembering what I was doing and scuttling out of the room.

Two more colors on 6 shields tonight. I was trying to determine what color I will use on the long tunics, and that is still bothering me.  The sheilds are yellow at the top, and the rest is red and white quartered ... taking after the coat-of-arms for the Italian town of Benevento.  I'm contemplating using black or dark grey or some sort of brown.

Day 12:
Not the most "useful day" but I been looking into how to make my own gaming table and how to improve my attic to store my minis, and maybe one day play/paint there.

Day 13:
I would like to do something similar in the future, but somehow manage to stack them or use them as "buildings" in an infinity game. (https://scontent-frt3-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/98040939_4326301060717101_829497406222499840_o.jpg?_nc_cat=101&_nc_sid=07e735&_nc_ohc=WIv0EcUl8WYAX9NL19s&_nc_ht=scontent-frt3-2.xx&oh=2a5bc7b4bfa3f71eff24f4d1bf63e10c&oe=5EE34064)

Was still not happy how my minis are store so doing it better today. Putting everything in boxes, but also trying to make them more accessible.

Day 11 - nothing.

Day 12 - Base canvas for the Pikemen banner. Some finishing touches to the unit.

Day 13 - Real work starts on the Pikemen banner. Some additional tufts to the unit.

I've managed to get some 20-30 minutes of focused hobby time per day, mostly thanks to this challenge. Learning to plan ahead, and learning not to stretch it too faar (into the night) and not to the stress about it.

Hope to finish the banner & the unit today. Or maybe tomorrow. :-)

Day 12   - May 12th
Tidied up the Goblin bases - filing off the filler where it had dried over the edges and on boots.
Put them back in the 'undercoating' box and moved them to the shed ready.

Checked my soaked paints and although I had to consign a couple to the bin, I have managed to salvage well over 20 pots
(It's been a long time since I painted anything - well with modelling acrylics.)

Sorted out a few Tabletop World buildings for painting - I think scenery will be my focus for a few days now


Day 13   -    May 13th

As always stuck to my plan ...  :engel: .... .... and opened a Midlam Miniatures KS packet of Adventurers - 14 figures, and prepped them for basing. Not a long job as the sculpts are really good with hardly any flash or mould lines.

Did open and investigate a few more old paint pots - more soaking going on.




As Zygmund said this is proving useful as although I do spend a lot of time in my office which is where I have a 'work table' and a large cutting mat I can go days without doing anymore than look at the minis on it.
The 'obligation' to do "something" even minor is positive.

Did anyone had the Free Skull Collector Card?

I love how they say, just contact the mail order trolls.

His right arm is indeed very easy to snap of. How do I know, it was a nightmare to get him back on with superglue. The contact area is so small... But it worked, after gluing my fingers together a few times...

I had too much paint on the palette so I picked up 2 of the other 6 and went with it.  I also started doing their black wash on the armor for the other 6 as well.  It is all coming along nicely, and I'll be doing more this evening.

Next question ... did anyone enjoy the music on those links I provided with the last update :icon_question: :icon_wink:

So ... updating ...

Day 15
Managed to crank out some miners. I got this unit mixed up with my full unit of miners. Have some left over warriors in here to flesh it out. I think I was reading in ktg17 thread about mismatched numbers for warrior/miner units.

Artoban ... your hero's spearmen are starting to look good!  Think I have a knight that I'm going to paint up to represent your dude in the campaign, he's even got a banner bearer and two knightly friends that I might add to the unit, and then only need 2 more.  The mail persons will bringeth!

Been looking around for a U.S. outfit that sells the Conquest Normans at a decent price, but I can't find anything that beats the five box deal sold by Conquest themselves.  I'm going to make a purchase of those, and some of their metal figures too, to create some units for the campaign we got moving forward.  After your leader's spearmen, and knights, got to get something going for Gankom's character as well.

Finished the base coating for the tunics of all 12 spearmen.  And with the left over paint switched to ... wait for it ... it is WFB figures ... waaaaaait for it ... my Matorean swordsmen.  Painted the shoes on the first five front figures, so the command and two swordsmen.  I haven't put paint on a WFB figure in I don't know how long.  And it felt good.  Those figures were primed in white more years ago than I can recall, and then I did some quartering of orange on them, and a wee bit of black on the armor of three of them, because I had extra black.  So who knows when I'll get to these figures again.  Besides, there's those unfinished mounted crossbows that are hiding in with my German Lion Rampant army that needs some focus. :icon_wink: :icon_lol:

Today is one long hobby day for me.

I will be attending the internet only Lets Roll Convention most of the day, popping in and out of a game or two, a painting session towards the end of afternoon, maybe watch a roleplpaying session.  And I have an ACW game to play in that is set for 6pm.

That means I will need to get in some painting this morning or maybe this afternoon at some point.  With 15 hobby days and 5 paint days in a row behind me, might try to see how many days in a row I can get some painting done, including today.

Day 14- Fine tuned some sisters of battle fluff.

Day 15- Had a Blackstone Fortress game. (With myself but it has solo mode so it still counts!)

Day 16- Build the last few fireforge archers, and kitbashed two custom adventurers for one of my special units.

It was a rocky start to the convention for me.  With so many different software choices being used, it has been challenging to get involved with some items.  I'm going to need to look into some of these options after the convention so I can better attend something like this in the future.

However, I've been enjoying things since lunchtime or so.  Attended a facebook/youtube talk on the upcoming Things From The Basement Gettysburg Buildings  kickstarter ... those are looking amazing.  Currently on line watching a 28mm Napoleonic game ... an assault on Pratzen Heights from the Battle of Austerlitz in 1805.

I've also set up my painting stuff in the hobby room for today, and getting ready to paint.  If anyone wants to join me via Zoom, I have a meeting currently in motion where we can sit chat and paint.  I can send along the meeting number and password, if anyone is interested in joining, then just send me a pm.

I quite like it. Its a fun dungeon exploration. Combat is fairly quick, setting up the board is fun and doesn't take long, and theres a good mix of combat and 'challenges'.

Well ...  the guy running the ACW game, he was out of electricity due to a tornado.  So no game for me.

In the meantime ... I have stayed with the Napoleonic game, done some shopping, and had a lovely 75 minute chat with Padre before the time on the Zoom meeting was running out.

It has been an interesting and fun hobby day! :icon_biggrin: :icon_cool:

I did finish the highlighting of the 8 skeleton horses just before I had my video conversation with GP. I had also written the first part of my new campaign story. So I did get quite a lot of hobby done on Saturday.

I quite like the way this story starts - a bit of background before the proper conversation begins ...

... (excerpt) ...
Quote
Fricknar had never in all his cruelty-filled life undertaken a journey as difficult as this. They were in such a hurry that they were not allowed to stop for more than a few moments at a time. So far, six nights and five days of almost perpetual motion, a relentless succession of step, step, step; eating, even excreting, on the move. Every now and again he would have to run ahead to shovel something quickly - filling a hole or flattening a lump. Invariably, just as he completed the labour, the trundling engine caught up and it was time to move on again.

In his bones he knew that should he continue at this pace another day then it would also become the most painful time of his life, not just the hardest journey. He had been badly beaten three times as a pup, and on the last occasion, as he lay battered and dazed, another pup from his own litter had eaten one of his fingers! He had been wracked with a burning pain in his lungs for countless days when he took a mouthful of warpstone vapour after an accident in the manufactory. He had been imprisoned in a near airless cage for more than a week as punishment for an infraction he never understood, starved of food and dizzied by the swinging motion of the cage every time someone pushed it (which many did and often). Right now, his pain and anguish were building up to rival all those past experiences, and by tomorrow, would surely overtake them.

I will set up another time for folks to get together via Zoom, chat, and maybe we can all be painting at the same time.  Currently a friend of mine has been doing a painting session on Friday evenings, so that would be out, yet depending on my schedule for next weekend, perhaps we can do something early enough here we we can include our British and European friends in on it as well.  But I need to finalize my schedule for next weekend before setting something like that in motion.

I was so busy chatting with Padre yesterday evening that I didn't paint while we were conversing away for 75 minutes.  Imagine that ... GP and Padre talking to each other live. :icon_eek: :icon_lol:

It was great to see and hear GP for real for the first time. Well, as real as video, which is way more real than forum text. I am very much looking forward to another session, whether or not we're all a-painting! I do like the idea of a joint painting and discussion session though.

Day 15    - Friday May 15th
Prepped and Based the Midlam Adventurers
Found some Goblin Wolf Rider legs from Lesleys's Bits here in the UK and ordered 10 for my Halfling riders units..


Day 16   - Saturday May 16th
I have decided that I don't really like the plain 20mm square Renedra bases so I went hunting online for 'proper' GW style ones, and bought 500

Then I went hunting some cheap craft paints - water based for two uses.
Firstly I use normal paint or these cheap paints for large areas like scenery as a base coat.
Secondly I use a lot of filler (spackle) on my scenery particularly on top of foam, and I mix a dark brown paint into the filler, so that if it chips then you don't see a white patch.

Not much else - LIVE Football is back on TV - well German football, but after the sporting drought, anything will do.
I played about trying to finish up a few resin Mom Miniatures I have had on my desk for ages that need some greenstuff, and some weapons straightening, and final pieces glued on.

Day 17 - Finally finished the pikeman unit (banner & champion's halberd), more paint removal & some instamolding, and little prep work on a couple of minis. Very good day of hobbying!

Extremely pleased to get the pikemen done.  They were on my painting corner for over a year, mocking me. I think they turned out very nice. Pics of the pikemen in the Renaissance Empire plog (http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=50579.msg1061771#new).

Day 17 - the only thing that could count as hobby is looking at Mids amazing terrain and ordering some moulds for flagstones and fieldstone walls.
Also saved polymer clay supplies and greenstuff world to the favourites as suggested by Naitsabes. Started looking for rollers then got overwhelmed by all the other cool stuff. When I find more courage Iíll order the cobblestone roller and 8 oz of Clay.

After inheriting my grandmother's sewing worktable, I have now moved from my storage room out the back kitchen door, and into my hobby room.  It has extended the hobby table to an 8 and a half foot length.  Although it is only 4 feet long this means the 5x7 can also hold a 4x8 playing area.

More work to do in the hobby room with some additional organizing.  However moved on to more painting of my horses for my Knights of the Aver River.  And then also glued 5 heads and an arm onto some French WW1 infantry figures that had crashed to the floor one day and these needed fixing.

That's how things usually are for me, I tend to move around form one project to the next.  It helps to keep me feeling liek I am gettign multiple things done, and seems to make things interesting.

Week 3:
Friday 15th:
Normally this is my painting evening, but I didn't paint much. Apparently it was "The Naked Gun" on TV and I watched it first, such a good movie from Leslie Nielsen
Then I proceeded in painting some undead.

Saturday 16th:
This evening I wanted to do something different. So I started cleaning moldlines and flash from some Chinese/Spanish Steel Legion. I will also have to fill some small casting mistakes in the Spanish figures.

Monday 18th:
I cleaned my painting desk and repaired a photo frame.
After this I continued cleaning those Steel Legion. I'm still far from finished, so much flash, moldlines,...

Doing an excellent job tracking GP!

I've joined a campaign on Discord that's 'redoing' the End Times as a player driven campaign. It's been running since late last year, so the initial Chaos invasion is over. Crippled Chaos but got driven back before it hit the Empire. Erengrad has been annexed by the Empire and now a joint Imperial/Bret Crusade is slamming into the shores of Norsca. I'm joining in as Karak-Hirn and likely starting with securing the borders of the hold, killing a psychic spider beast creature and then venturing out to help the other Dwarf Holds fight off Skaven.

So for me, Day 17 was reading through a mountain of campaign updates and taking notes.

Day 18 was plotting out my own starting fluff.

Day 19 is starting updates of my own! I'll have a game later this week to start off the hunt for the spiders lair, so today I drew up some army lists and started unburying the models needed.

I painted red on Papal spearmen, their tunics and shields.  Was having issues focusing, both visually and mentally ... fatigue and age.  So turned it in for the night.

Learned previously that when my painting isn't going good, it isn't good to continue.

A few more bits and bobs done about hobby

Week 1
May 1st:
- Started making a reference sheet of the Salamanders for Benthe to cope with all the rules (in dutch with keeping the english names), did the overal rules and a first unit and let her review it.
- Painted some more Salamanders with Benthe, she did some bases in red as foundation for the lava and I put on a first layer of the lighter green on 1 Inceptor and glued another to its flying stand
- Painted the Noxious Blightbringer to an almost finished stage
May 3rd:
- Completing the reference sheet with all the Primaris models she has. As I wanted to do a sheet on strategems also I noticed that the Salamnders Data Cards set doesn't include startegems for the generic Space Marines and that the Data Cards box I have is an old version. To bad the store didn't have the new one yet.
May 5th:
-Played a game of 40k with Benthe, at 775 vs 776 points Salamanders vs Death Guard a maelstrom game from the main book with the new set up rules, but cards the old way. 4 battlerounds and we called it on a 8-8 tie!

Week 2
May 8th:
-Painted a few (6) Salamander bases in it's base color (red) and put the 2nd layer of lighter green on the 2nd Inceptor and after that glued him to the flying stand (1 more to go). And started some work on a Lieutenant.
-Finished up the Noxious Blightbringer, and washed the base of the Malignant Plaguecaster and fixed the gaps in his right pauldron. He will be next to start on from my Death Guard army, after him only the Lord of Contagion and the Plagueburst Crawler to go!
May 9th:
-Painted a bit on a second Lieutenant and a base on Adrax.
-Splashed the first colour on the Malignent Plaguecaster.
-As it was a nice day today and from tomorrow it might go colder and rainy again I decided I wanted to prime the last models of my T'au standing army and the Plagueburst Crawler, I needed to pva glue some sand and rocks on the bases of the T'au for that so I did that first today and this evening I sprayed the models.

May 10th:
-Read through a few (2) WD's I still needed to read/browse through, I managed this during mothersday!
May 11th:
-Due to circumstances didn't do much on my regular hobby evening, but did manage to slap on a layer of ulthuan grey on my Broadside


So week 3 has come and gone almost also, need to get my act togther and follow all th great work everyone is doing. But got a bit distracted by a side project as I want to get rid of my Stamp collection (inherrited and given mostly have not collected much of it my self), but to gt a decent price I want to know how much it's worth so I ended up putting it all in catawki's online catalog collection. But it is A LOT of stamps.
Anyway I did manage to do some work past monday atleast and will do some this evening and I'm free tomorrow to do my 3rd day this week, so should be fine!

Week 3
May 18th:
-Painted more on my Maglinant Plaguecaster and he is nearly finished, just a bit more metal doing the wash over that and a few details to pick out and the finish off the base.

"Textured"    Zyg came up with the accurate word for what I have been calling sticking filler on bases to hide an in-built metal or plastic base on a mini. :eusa_clap:
I shall remember - if only because it means I don't have to type that word 'spackle' again.  :biggriin:


Day 18    -  Monday May 18th

(https://i.imgur.com/NiHuS1K.jpg)

My paint restorer kit.  :biggriin:  Spent a couple of hours reclaiming pots.
However did run in to a problem with my very old Cote D'armes flip-top bottles where the plastic lids are disintegrating. The paint though is still fine.  :eusa_clap:

Need to find somewhere to get empty pots to transfer paint in to???  :icon_question:

Also sorted out some halfling torsos I need for a project - went through my entire halfling collection looking for suitable candidates and broken figures that might convert.

Day 19   -   Tuesday May 19th

Bit of a scenery day - made up a couple more 'fields/enclosures' with left over pieces mainly from the Fortified Manor sets, and then I started on some tents I have.

I am going to base them up in groups, and make campfire dioramas to go with them, but I ran into a layout conundrum.
My original intent (badumtish  :engel: ) was to set them up in a row like this:
(https://i.imgur.com/hO2qFYX.jpg)

and

(https://i.imgur.com/0Nw9NtL.jpg)

A 25mm gap so that minis could move between the tents to enhance gameplay, BUT then I saw some real-life pics where they were set up like this:

(https://i.imgur.com/RVyH57f.jpg [img])https://i.imgur.com/Qvic2Ek.jpg[/img]

which I found strange, as in my dim and distant camping memories, tents would have guy ropes splayed out at various angles to keep them upright.

So our resident historians need to come forth and advise me.
I have some bits of mdf ready to be trimmed.

Re: tents.

Circumstances rule. As you see from this picture during my time garrisoning Skipton Castle ...

(https://i.imgur.com/3kcpyNe.jpg)

... the tents are close. They were almost as close in the other tented areas too. The maths goes like this (and yes, I am entirely aware how completely unnecessary this is!) ...

X tents in Y space. X is constant. The smaller Y is, the closer together the tents.

It all depends on the available space.

This quest has really encouraged me to paint a little more! The painting speed is still low and progress is slow, but now it is a little more continuously.
As mentioned in the original post of this thread, this started 5 years ago when I heard about that professor's assignment to her students.  In having them pick something to do for 100 days in a row, she said it would change their life.  When I took on the challenge back then with my 100 Days of Painting, it really did change my life ... became a better painter, got way more figures done, and even though it was a struggle sometimes to get some in to the day, I ended up experiencing a good bit of peace and joy, more so than had I not done it.

Yesterday (Tuesday) managed to make a fourth 'be-skulled' bar to go over a pair of horses' backs. No idea (despite research) what this might actually be called. I had the one already on the carroccio, and two earlier versions (from an earlier Black Coach model?) in my bits box. You can see the two pre-made versions at either side in the photo. The new one I tried to make a bit like both of those!

It's called a yoke.  Although they usually have a piece that wraps around the neck as well.

I've been calling the big long pole (in this several spinal columns) the yoke! When I image googled 'carriage/cart/wagon/coach harness' (I tried all 4) nothing came up that looked anything like a bar over the shoulders! Just loads of leather and chains and stuff!

Of course now I google 'medieval oxen yoke' exactly those bars appear. But I didn't know that was the right term to google - it was a Catch 22 situation. I needed to know the answer to find the images!!!

Shutting down for the night.  Much work tomorrow.  Got in some fine tuning of red on the 6 Papal Guard spearmen, and then did the red on the shields of the remaining 6 figures of the other unit of spearsmen.  Wanted to do more, yet fading fast.

I'm glad thta I got 20 Hobby Days gone past, and the last 10 days have each included painting. :icon_cool:

This week I had lots of time, but didn't do as much as I would had wanted. I just painted a little bit while watching a Westworld, or read way more about the new rules/units in Infinity.

Day 19:
Assemble some of the "hero" spaces marines? Those that were sold in Japan, and came in units of one. Really interesting idea, but probably not worth the money.

Day 20:
Found a new Infinity lore youtube channel, was going to paint and watch but end up only watching. I really like that infinity has huge holes in the lore for you to build upon.

Day 21:
Built some Infinity buildings that I had still boxed up. Try making a table for a game, but I still need to get more buildings.

This weekend I will be missing, because I wont be home.

22, 23, 24 will be misses for me.

Hi Realjuan ... glad your still with us!  I amended the last update listing Day 19 for ya.  And thanks for the heads up on the weekend :::cheers:::

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Today I took half the afternoon off and started messing around with more organization in the hobby room, including unloading a moving box of mostly 40K Orks , a few Space Marines, and Tau figures and moving them into my storage room out the back door of my kitchen.  I also messed with camera positioning for Zoom games, and ended up going with it on a higher perch by about 6 inches to give a slightly better perspective, but it was quite the process to move various pieces of small furniture and stack on top of each other to find out what worked best. 

And I glued a tail on a horse, and can't find the other one that needs gluing.

Plus I dunked 6 sets of two Bret archers that were first introduced by GW back in 1996.  I got 26 pairs of them at 50 cents a piece on a flea market table one time, and going to do up a couple sets of six to use as Bidower units for Rampant gaming.

Expect to make some figures and paint some figures this evening.

May 21st:
-Painted more on the Broadside like I said I would and when I had to wait for paint to dry I grabbed the last Inceptor to put on the first layer of green, not the most enjoyng painting to do big tim elayering but it has to be done to get to the better parts.

Nothing to report for day 21. Until I thought hard about stretching this hobby point. Made a deal with GP for a warcry game so that counts right? Right?!
Also yesterday was my birthday but Iím not the type to bring it up ever. Ever. No not me. I wonít mention it. Donít really celebrate them so no need to bring them up right? Right?!

Also for day 22 - added beards and faces to miners, slayers, and 2 unforged. Will try for some later as well.

Woooo Happy Birthday Artoban!!! I Really need to check this thread more if I'm going to miss incredibly important events like that!

I'm also falling behind on my updating!

Day 20- Had a skirmish game, dwarves vs undead. A resounding victory for the dawi! They only suffered 98% casualties, but victory none the less!

Day 21- Spend a good portion of the afternoon going over my brothers 40k collection. He's moving and 'giving' it to be, so we spent some time together tallying everything up, making an inventory/army list, and just generally having fun.

Day 22- Had an online RPG session! Some friends and I are starting a campaign of The One Ring rpg. Sadly half of the fellowship didn't show up, so we spent the time going over the ground rules, discussion how we wanted to do the campaign, and nerding out for lord of the rings.

Well considering it carefully there would be the 'just bones' bodies at the bottom of the pile, and as you rise up through the 'mountain' surely more recently deceased corpses sort of zombie like, or just gruesomely wounded bodies.  :icon_question:

Post by: Padre on May 23, 2020, 10:31:55 AM
I think that's too much work. Pure bones are easier. I have worked out another, quicker way. I will do a layer of already piled bones, slapped together and less carefully (thus quicker) painted. Then I'll lay these, when they're finished, on top.

- - - - - -

Despite having the painting session via Zoom last night, not a lot of painting for me, just finished making 3 more billmen, and got in some yellow pants on 5 of the spearmen.  Too much yacking and not enough painting.

Keeps the streaks alive, but that is about it.  Sometimes that's what it takes.

- - - - - -

Despite having the painting session via Zoom last night, not a lot of painting for me, just finished making 3 more billmen, and got in some yellow pants on 5 of the spearmen.  Too much yacking and not enough painting.

Keeps the streaks alive, but that is about it.  Sometimes that's what it takes.

Week 3:
Friday 15th:
Normally this is my painting evening, but I didn't paint much. Apparently it was "The Naked Gun" on TV and I watched it first, such a good movie from Leslie Nielsen
Then I proceeded in painting some undead.

Saturday 16th:
This evening I wanted to do something different. So I started cleaning moldlines and flash from some Chinese/Spanish Steel Legion. I will also have to fill some small casting mistakes in the Spanish figures.

Monday 18th:
I cleaned my painting desk and repaired a photo frame.
After this I continued cleaning those Steel Legion. I'm still far from finished, so much flash, moldlines,...

Thursday 21th:
This is a national holiday, so I should get some painting in.
I started and finished modelling my stand in model for Dankhold Troggboss. And he is almost ready to be primed, some little gaps to be filled with greenstuff.

Week 4:
Friday 22th:
I finally finished my undead warband for Warcry, including basing. Some pictures will follow.

Saturday 23th:
I worked some more on my Steel Legion, removing flash, basing them,... Still lots to finish before I can prime them.
I also worked out how to make my squads and how many I'm able to field.
2 Commanders
1 Command squad (2 melta- or plasmas gunners, standard bearer & medic)
3 Full Squads (2 with grenade launchers, 1 with flamer)
2 Special weapon squads (3 snipers, 3 flamers)
2 Heavy Weapons squads (3 Lascannons teams, 3 Rocket Launchers)

Day 21    -   Thurs  May 21st

Pottered a bit, but spent an hour or so playing with this Halfling Cavalry

Day 22    - Friday May 22nd

Started work on basing the tents - want  to make some mdf bases for lines of tents - so I can have just a couple or several on the tabletop depending on the scenario.

Sort advice on layout - got it from our historian - the proper English one  :closed-eyes:
Cut some bases and also hunted out some bits and pieces I have for a campfire diorama or two.


Day 23   - Saturday  May 23rd

Zoom Day - took a scalpel knife to some sprue to make some timber struts to plug a gap in the fences on my field No 4
It is quite surprising how paring off the straight edges makes a piece of sprue look like a stake or post.
Then textured same field and now it awaits spraying.

Day 24   -  Sunday   May 24th

More bases cutting - have sorted out how I want the tents based - I have some 22 overall of various shapes and sizes.

Also more playing with the Halfling Cavalry units  - yes it's 2 units
One of 10 with mainly spears, and then 5 with missile weapons ... ... ... ...

... ... ... ... and NO they're NOT crossbows.  :engel:


That's it for today - just gone 18.30 - dinner on the way, and the Mrs wants to watch a film and of course I do what I am told .. ...

Starting week 4!

Week 3
May 18th:
-Painted more on my Maglinant Plaguecaster and he is nearly finished, just a bit more metal doing the wash over that and a few details to pick out and the finish off the base.
May 20th:
-Finished painting the Malign Plaguecaster, and started slapping on the first few color on the Lord of Contagion and the Plagueburst Crawler!, though they ain't on my month schedule to do, but I was working on Death Guard and having a bit of spare time, tomorrow I want to focus down on the Broadside
May 21st:
-Painted more on the Broadside like I said I would and when I had to wait for paint to dry I grabbed the last Inceptor to put on the first layer of green, not the most enjoyng painting to do big time layering but it has to be done to get to the better parts.

Week 4
May 24th:
-Painted more on my Broadside; got a lot of work done on my Lord of Contagion

Day 24 - finished the warden king, and 5 unforged
I think Iím ready to tackle the other 5 Boingrotís and move the converted Loonboss on a giant squig to a new stand but I think that will be for tomorrow.
Except for the mule train and the GD bases, the dwarves are done for now.

Less horses wouldn't have done.

My progress over the weekend:

Day 22 - Grabbed more minis and based them, building a long painting queue here. Got them mostly primed. Picked a couple of minis and started to paint them.

Day 23 - Painting & basing. Paint removal continued. Finished one giant swine, which I redid after my wife criticized my original colour choice.

Day 24 - Basing. Finished painting two civilians. Did the basecoat for skin for nine more.

Today ... another six archers completed ... so that is 24 of the 280 in the last 4 days.  Planning to start gluing them to painting sticks as well.

After dinner, I will paint some more of the Ral Partha spearmen for Artoban's character, and the others for the Pope's body guard.

You should put some paint on them, spray and/or washes, to make them look less plastic.

Oh they're not finished yet - still WIP.
I have quite a lot of plastic foliage from various sources - the topiary balls that garden centres sell make excellent starting points.
But as you say they tend to be a bit too shiny and all one colour.

I have some sprays which I might 'drift' over the leaves, and then some highlights should help too.

Day 26   -  Tuesday May 26th

Tents and Fields 3 and 4
So found some brown spray - which is actually a colour not a primer, so I used that reddish primer first and then went over afterwards with the brown.

Because I am using mdf for the bases, I want to minimise the chances of warping, which is why I am using the primer and then spray.
Next will be some mix of craft paint in a dusty brown colour to give me an earthy look before I add some flock.

What this effectively means is that I am getting very very close to having to pick up a paintbrush!!!!

Though maybe not today - I am playing with bits for a campfire layout, and there is a top of the table clash in the Bundesligia in about 10 minutes.
 :engel:




and drama of dramas - or maybe not under the circumstances -  :closed-eyes: apparently Amazon Prime have lost the rights to NCIS Los Angeles from June 2nd and I am only three quarters of the way through Season 4 ... ...
.. .. and they have up to Season 9 currently available. Some 126 episodes to watch over the next 6 days - well not going to happen.

Continuing with week 4, I almost forgot to do.. I was so pre-occupied with finishing Germany on the stamps that I forgot time, it took way too long so when I noticed I cut off the stamp time and started to do some painting.

Week 3
May 18th:
-Painted more on my Maglinant Plaguecaster and he is nearly finished, just a bit more metal doing the wash over that and a few details to pick out and the finish off the base.
May 20th:
-Finished painting the Malign Plaguecaster, and started slapping on the first few color on the Lord of Contagion and the Plagueburst Crawler!, though they ain't on my month schedule to do, but I was working on Death Guard and having a bit of spare time, tomorrow I want to focus down on the Broadside

Week 4
May 24th:
-Painted more on my Broadside; got a lot of work done on my Lord of Contagion
May 25th:
- slapped a bit of paint on the plagueburst crawler, its now black and green (and primer white)

Day 26 - assembled 5 Boingrots and based them. May start paint tonight.

Need supplies! Have 12 Stormcast to paint, 200 bases to do, and running out of models.  Just dug our the shadow warriors. Elves.... the last resort of the truly desperate. How I hate painting elves. Pristine, perfect uppity buggers. Everything that goes against  my skill level.

The rumours GW was opening have proved baseless and false. 74 days to go and everything is either en route, lost for all time or hiding in behind a storefront.

Patience....calm blue ocean.....butterflies flitting about......

200 bases? That ought to keep busy for a bit.

As for the painting ... find something that you can experiment and trying thinning out your paints a good bit.  Some folks get fancy with how they do this, yet I just put some water into the paint and that can do the trick.  Also, working with a white base will brighten the look of the figure, which could work well for High Elfs as well.
 
Maybe I'll send ya some figures. :icon_wink:

Unfortunately the bases (100 from that red devil China) and 100 from the lovely Spain are between here and the originating countryís.
The shadow warriors should slow me down a bit. Iíll try and make a pact and do these properly and carefully and not speed through them.

Unfortunately the bases (100 from that red devil China) and 100 from the lovely Spain are between here and the originating countryís.
The shadow warriors should slow me down a bit. Iíll try and make a pact and do these properly and carefully and not speed through them. Maybe the bases will arrive, my evocators will arrive, my trolls will arrive, my lone  dwarf for the flame cannon  conversion, maybe GW will open so I can get my corax white spray and my 8 other colours will be available including the technical for the bases.

What size bases do you need? Maybe I have some spares to send along for ya.

Presume you're meaning to be 25mm squares?  I believe most of my square bases are 20mm.

Not sure I have extras, they are usually linked to a mini I have, and my renedra ones have WotRs in mind, going to go check ...

Ah, well I just ordered 100, they are not plastic though, they are "fancy" wood. I can part with some, not needing all of them now, I could send along 50? My source is in New England, can quickly replace what I send your way, and got the ones I have in 3 to 5 days.  So if you need more, I can either point you in the direction or get them for you.

Looks like Mids has some basing to do.  Maybe he'll even get around to painting some. :icon_wink: :engel:

In the meantime ... GP did up another 6 arquebusiers this morning, these will be French, and last night's 6 will be Burgundian.  Go in some touch up painting last night on the 17 spearmen, yellow, red, gray ... not exciting stuff, yet helps pretty up the figures a bit.  Getting ready to use Boltgun on the chainmail and maybe helmets too, and then wash them, and then do highlights.

Plague beast spawn: 70% complete
After 12 years, the army is nearly ready

Howling Griffons: Very slow at the moment. Painting yellow without ceramite white is difficult.

On a frustrating note, I knocked over the box I kept my FB chaos undivided army in and launched them all over the floor in the process. Fortunately only two models were damaged out of the lot. Nothing a little glue wont fix.

Week 4:
Friday 22th:
I finally finished my undead warband for Warcry, including basing. Some pictures will follow.

Saturday 23th:
I worked some more on my Steel Legion, removing flash, basing them,... Still lots to finish before I can prime them.
I also worked out how to make my squads and how many I'm able to field.

Wednesday 27th:
I (re-)started painting on a Freebooter fairy which is sitting on my desk for 10 years I think. Time to finish the little lady.
The skin is mostly done, as well as the basecolor for the clothing & wings.

This sounds sooo very familiar: working on a bunch of models, bit by bit, and they never seem to get done. Until the last day, there are suddenly so many cool & fine models ready. :)


Days 26 & 27 - Nothing. Crazy hectic days, but got work done & cooked good food & kept the kids in order. :)

Day 28 - Warzone minis: some armature work for the conversions, and final paint removal. Oh, and one squirrel! :D

I see dead bodies showing up in this thread.  Just when ya thought it was safe to not watch world news, they show up here anyway. :icon_wink:

Wednesday was the first hot and humid day of the year here.  Got out the air conditioner to install, and it tumbled out the window to the pavement below.  Spent too much time dealing with getting a new one and getting it installed.  I never enjoy when a project seems to become Federal.  Anyway ... without that up and running, hobbying would get more difficult.

Glad I got the 6 arquebusiers in yesterday morning.  Ended painting brown on 12 spearmen's pants, kept leaving that, and finally got around to it.

When I was a youngster having to get a task accomplished, my father would sometimes say, "What are you doing, making a Federal project out of that?"  I'm sure he got it from my grandfather.

At the time I didn't get the meaning, probably looked at him like a deer in headlights, but one time he gave an explanation. Of course I appreciate it more these days. :icon_lol:

Day 27   - Wednesday May 27th
Cleared the painting table, laid down some newspaper and loaded up a half inch brush with a sandy earth basecoat for my fields - and splashed it all over.
Drilled some holes in my rider legs and in the mounts to test run fitting.

Day 28    -  Thursday  May 28th

It's pushing 2pm here and I have already wielded the paintbrush AGAIN.
Further base coats on my fields, and first base coats on 3 thatched roofs on some buildings I have had partially built and painted for yonks.

Day 25 and 26 was spent reorganizing model boxes and repacking things so that units and armies were together. Easy to pull out for future use!

Day 27 & 28 I had myself a small skirmish game. Dwarf adventurers venturing into the depths of the earth to look for threats facing the Hold. They've discovered a growing horde of creatures controlled by sentient ish fungus, and now they need to marshal to clean it out!

So the 3rd day is a bit of a cheat in my book, but I guess it counts as it's hobby involvment.. And I planned to do some stuff Thursdayevening also but my mind was totally not up to it.

Week 3
May 18th:
-Painted more on my Maglinant Plaguecaster and he is nearly finished, just a bit more metal doing the wash over that and a few details to pick out and the finish off the base.
May 20th:
-Finished painting the Malign Plaguecaster, and started slapping on the first few color on the Lord of Contagion and the Plagueburst Crawler!, though they ain't on my month schedule to do, but I was working on Death Guard and having a bit of spare time, tomorrow I want to focus down on the Broadside
May 21st:
-Painted more on the Broadside like I said I would and when I had to wait for paint to dry I grabbed the last Inceptor to put on the first layer of green, not the most enjoyng painting to do big time layering but it has to be done to get to the better parts.

Week 4
May 24th:
-Painted more on my Broadside; got a lot of work done on my Lord of Contagion
May 25th:
-Slapped a bit of paint on the plagueburst crawler, its now black and green (and primer white)
May 26th:
-Picked up some T'au scenery models some local crew has printed for me and had a nice 1 hour chat about the hobby with the dude where I picked it up. (Link here (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1555279928/3d-printable-alien-tau-style-scenery-for-tabletop-wargames?ref=creator_nav) for anyone interested. Pictures of the stuff will be in my blog in a few days. Got the bunker, Weapons Turret (that did not go fully on how it should be) and Battlefield Structure / Objective Marker

I had the same philosophy when I tried to become an author.

On the hobby front; one of the nurgle spawns arms broke off so I replaced it with a giant, bulbous sore. Should have it finished by tomorrow.

Day 29   -  Friday May 28th


More scenery painting.
Testing some colours out on the tents - Deneb Stone or Bleached Bone??

Did some brick walls - after some playing with various greys, I settled on Eshin Grey as  a basecoat and then Codex for the main highlight - probably add a lighter drybrush, but I am not going to do much more than basic paintjobs on scenery.

It is definitely feeling like the end of a four day week.  My apology for not getting to this thread sooner today.

Last night I got 3 Perry WotRs archers constructed, that's it.  Oh and painted gray on spearmen as a touch up, plus left over paint to a GW Empire metal archer.  He came in a two pack over ten years ago, and the first one I added to some plastic figures for a unit of 5 archers as a Westerland detachment unit during the time of the Marienburg Crisis campaign.

Tonight it will be more archers, and painting something.  Plus I worked on the Imagi-Nations campaign that Artoban, Gankom and I are currently starting.  Did up a fluff piece regarding how the situation exists after the first battle of the war.  And finalized pieces on mapping, supply, and scouting, as well as current NPCs, Units, and campaign continuing from here.

Progress here has become slow on the 28mm Perry WotRs and Euro Mercs.  I get going each day, but yesterday again only completing three archers.  Oh well, still constructing these figures every day for the last 10 in a row.  Did backs of 11 shields last night, so been painting the last 20 in a row, and hobbying the last 30 too.  There is no way this would be happening without this combined effort folks are making.

Got in a game of Lion Rampant yesterday morning with a new player and another guy that had played twice in person before the public health issue.  This time it was on Zoom ... used the 24 point Norman and Italian lists.  First time the Italians won in the last 5 games, and the slightly experienced player pulled it off using a tactical maneuver on the table top I hadn't seen used previously with this scenario.  Fun to see it happen.

Lots of things going on this week in the house.
Wednesday 27:
Gaming day, friend came over and we got a small skirmish game going + coffee

Thursday:
Started glueing heads, weapons, shield that are lying around in boxes. I think having so many and not knowing my models well, is going to lead to a lot getting lost.

Friday 29:
Short day, did a timeline of my haqqislam and rethinking the logo since it seems the official logo will be change. Not sure if happy or not

Saturday 30:
Nothing, went for a hike with some friends, end up having coffee blah blah blah..nothing got done.

Sunday 31:
Today, free day so I got to paints some spearmen that I had around. Mostly models that were damage, but I didn't want to concentrate.

Tidying up my Conquistador themed Empire army. I built it between 2008-12
I noticed the small archer unit was undermanned and decided to add a full command. Then I checked the rulebooks and realised archers/huntsmen CANT have full commands

All I really have to do with this army is finish the bases AND paint a unit of hand gunners. Shouldn't take too long

GP, bold me up for every day up to now because I have done at least an hour's work every day, sometimes twice that, on the end of season campaign reports for 5 active players. The 6th player, almost wholly inactive, is a GP and kinda has his hands full with the pandemic! I'll not bother him just now!

I am almost done. It's a process in which each report gets written regarding the player's own forces and situation, every one entirely different from the others, then I add a general overview of the realm, skewed with respect to their perspectives, biases, interests (etc), to one player's report, then for the next player's more general report I use the previous player's text as a starting point and modify accordingly, and in parts very heavily. During this process I realise I have to go back and add things in to one or more previous players' reports, and so each of 5 or 6 reports grows and changes simultaneously. By this evening I will begin by reading the first report carefully, correcting and modifying as necessary, adding all the technical (rules-based) facts and figures on the bottom (army sizes, supply points generated and required etc), e-mail and move on to the next.

Usually, once all are done and sent out, I turn the reports into a general report for the thread, either inserting shorts stories into it, or using what came out in the reports to inspire a story of particular events of NPCs, and illustrating with models I have recently been working on. That's what I'll do this time too.

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Yesterday I finished the backs of 6 more shields, constructed 3 archers, and consolidated some campaign info while creating some new info for Artoban and Gankom as well.

A bit of a teaser for what is happening with the campaign ... The foundation of the Imagi-Nations early medieval era campaign has been growing ... it includes the first battle (conducted via Zoom software) between the Papal Coalition and the Normundian Alliance, the fluff Situation after the Battle, a map of the area giving the terrain just out beyond where the battle took place, the Campaign Concepts of Mapping, Supply, Scouting, NPCs, Units, Strategic Movement by unit type and terrain type, and the Turn Sequence. Work has begun on creating individual player maps which will be running along side the overall GM map, and have begun preparing my website for photo storing and use to have a campaign thread running on W-E.

And today ... I've already created 3 more archers this morning.

Just thought I would add that again I lost. That happened way too many times in my regular gaming days and before you say , sure we all experience that, I would also like to add Gankom rolled at least 9 double 1ís during this event. At leader as the imagi-Italians , Iím living up to their modern rep 😺

Ok, my updates are less regular then use-all, but I have 2 weeks off now. Normally we would go on a vacation to The Netherlands, but due to Corona that ain't going to happen.
So, I thought, that is good time to paint! Well apparently no...

Week 5:
Friday 29th:
I had to clean out the attic because some baby stuff has to go up their. So everything hobby related and so much more had to come down.
I reorganized my materials and painting desk, so that is the positive part about it.
In the evening I painted some more on the fairy I started 10 years ago for my wife  :dry:

Saturday 30th:
While watching the finale of Lego Masters 2020, I cleaned away some more mold lines on my steel legion. We're getting their!

Monday 1th:
I painted some more on the Fairy. It is nearly done now!

Wednesday 3th:
I hope to finish the Fairy this evening. And maybe start something new, like my Gremlin warband for Malifaux. I wonder, if someone still plays that game.

Yesterday had me scratching together 3 more archers, and painted some shirts and pants from one of my new paints, Caledor Sky.  This went on to 5 of my quartered Matorean swordsmen, and it goes quite nicely with the orange that was quartered on to them so many years ago.  These guys were primed in white, so this blue color went on a bit brighter than I prefer, but it really doesn't look bad either, so I am glad this color was chosen. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Fully agree. I thought it was unpainted but looked that way 'cos you had constructed it from multi-coloured 'bricks'!

The grey would look loads cooler. In more ways than one, I suppose!!!

(https://artobansghost.files.wordpress.com/2020/06/img_0484.jpg)

The idea is cool, but the colours are too bright, too different from each other. I would give the whole a grey drybrush, to bring the black, red, beige etc. closer to each other. And then a black or dark brown wash. A couple of layers of heavy wash could actually do the job, but I think you would like to decrease the contrast with the black, so drybrush the black at least.

Just my opinion. I've done this multicoloured stone thing a couple of times myself, and it tends to look like that after the basecoats. Then, I feel, more work is needed.

The multi coloured. Just added it now but not sure of it. Kind of looks like a blow up party palace 😺

here is my recipe for doing walls and having some stone stand out a little
Stage 1 (Primary basecolors)
Mechanicus Standard Grey (2x)
   Bacecoat: Stone walls
Russ Grey (2x)
   Layer: Stone walls single out some stones
Mournfang Brown (2x)
   Basecoat: Fences, wood pillars
Agrax Earthshade
   Shade: Stone walls, Fences, wood pillars

Stage 2 (Highlights)
Ushabti Bone
   Drybrush: Stone walls
Skrag Brown
   Drybrush/Highlight: Fences, wood pillars

Stage 3 (Details)
Mournfang Brown (dirt look)
   Recess Highlights: Stone walls

can't seem to find the picture I made of my wall..

good video on it here (from about min 4)

Another 3 more archers constructed, and flesh washed all 17 ral partha spearmen plus 5 of my Matorean swordsmen.  Been  putting some thought into how I am going to expand the map for Early Medieval Imagi-Nations campaign, and it going to take some more time to finalize what I want to do with this project.  I also inventoried all my Wars of the Roses figures ... got a jump start on figuring out which retinue will be painted which colors too.

Day 32
Day 33
Day 34


Odds and ends all 3 days going from probably 10 minutes on Tuesday to an hour on Monday.
More paint pots reclaimed and some old Cote D'Arms paint transferred to new dropper bottles.

Not used dropper bottles before - I know I had a cheap plastic palette somewhere, but I am damned if I can find it now.
Just using ceramic tiles as I always have.

That 'accident' with the grey spray paint is strange - the can says 'Primer' but there is a definite shiny gloss like finish - maybe it was an atmospherics thing? As I recall it was a hot day.

Day 35
Already slapped a bit of paint on a field and just waiting for the kettle to boil for morning coffee before I go back ... ... ...

... ... however I am a little distracted.
Not sure if any of you noticed but there has been a 'pyramid' style posting on Facebook of "10 Albums", one each day for 10 days, and each day you 'grow' the pyramid by nominating someone.
I didn't join in, but my local soccer Whatsapp group have been having a musical memories few days and we have been challenged to do a top 20 albums from our 'personal collections'.

My LPs are in cases under the stairs - I am sorely tempted to get them out ... ... ... ...  :engel:

Fort Stanley gets a new paint job. After the last batch of painters where drawn and quartered for the idea of a joke, new painters have been hired and they will tote the line with a traditional stonework paint job. The Knights Excelsior where almost amused at the chaos offering of mortal painters.

I have now set up the scene of 196 zombie cultists accompanying their carroccio corpse wagon! Took all evening - brushing all that flock!!!!! Taking pics of the individual zombies is easy, but I am struggling to get a good pic of the corpse wagon. It is so big.

BTW, I reckon setting up this scene counts as a major event in my 100 days effort.

Are the 196 figures individually based, and when you say 'brushed', I assume the flock is loose over the table?

@ Midaski
They're based individually, or 2 by 2, or in pairs, or in strips of 5. Multibased to help with setting up units. The hooded ones were the living cultist models, but who can tell they're not zombies when they are still wearing their hoods? The rest are mostly kitbashed zombie/cultist/ghouls models, made specifically to represent the cultists raised from the dead to fight again!!!!!!

And yes, flock brushed across the table. This is what I have been doing for years. Flock, or little gravel. Then after the shots, brush it all back into the pot. The trouble is I use the same flock tub when basing, and so I nearly ran out before I could finish this. In the distance, however, it doesn't mjatter if it is neat or complete cos the camera doesn't pick up such details. I just have to make sure the foreground is neatly done, and if a base shows, smudge it on the photo with MSPaint (or, correct the flock and retake the photo if it is all still set up!)

Glued 3 more archers, and prepped 9 more ready for gluing, the start of York's retinue.

Also painted some more on the metal WFB archer, and doing him up as another Westerland archer, or else Wissenland ... flesh, gray and white, olive green leggings.  And painted flesh on my metal Reikland Captain and Marienburg Captain, and one of the young bloods, the one with the basket on his back (had done the one with the spear so long ago as an addition to my Aver River Regiment's spearsmen ... perhaps the second one will get painted in Matorean colors, since he has a sword.  I'll probably give the Reikland Captain the Averland colors of black and yellow, and the Marienburg dude will be in my Matorean colors of blue and orange.

Day 36    -   Friday June 5th

Day 37     -   Sat June 6th


More bits and pieces.
Have now gone through 75 of the 135 paint pots on my painting station, and so far I have only binned ONE pot, and transferred one Cote D'Arms pot into a fresh pot.
However I have the metals coming up soon ( after the Greens) and there are a good number of the very old CD'A flip tops in that section.

I have added some bits of colour to some figures on my table, and some buildings whilst doing that, and have done some repair jobs too that have been sitting on my workbench for quite a while - pinned weapons, a standard, and a topknot that have all broken off.

'Doing Things' is becoming sort of infectious as I also went through my record collection as discussed earlier, and I have had a bit of a tidy up in my office.

Day 37 - tower continues. Remeber GP, when I built that wall/base that made no sense? (Not unusual in my world). Now we have a purpose 😺

Also some work on my Stormcast.

Week 6 has started and already 2 days in!

Week 5
May 29th:
-Work on the last bg stage for my broadside, 2nd layer of the dark white, added all the recess shades and painted the orange sept parts in it's final layer color x2 so with that I'm almost done with the tedious parts (just cleaning up after the shades to do as tedious)
May 31st:
-Finished the Broadside, and made the pictures for my Instagram(FB/Twitter) and for my blog to also repost
June 1st:
-Finished the Lord of Contagion (had to check this morning that the Nurgles Rot had settled ok to be sure it was finished)
-Did a bit of metallic work on the Crawler
-Did the second layer of green on the Inceptor Sergeant and glued him to his flying stand, now only to base the squad to make them battleready
June 4th:
-Got a whole lot of metalics done on all the smaller subasemblies of the Plagueburst Crawler, only a few tidbits on the main hull.

Week 6
June 5th:
-Did more work on the Plagueburst Crawler, even got to adding the first finished side panel
-Added Ironcrust/earth to the bases of the Inceptors, but looking at a graphic it was mixed around on which one would crack more then the other and so I messed the idea up on the base though it came out ok and Benthe was happy enough, but noted it down in my document to not mess it up on further models
June 6th:
-Finished the Plagueburst Crawler WOOOOHOOO... or maybe not, now I'm out of Death Guard models to do!!!!
-Might finish up the lava bases on the Inceptors later this evening

Saw your wall in a previous picture. Looks like you've changed the color of the keep.

The tower was beige and was standing out. So I blasted it with black yesterday and highlights today. 😺

Now Iím thinking what Naitsabes brought up about the roller and the mix for some cobble stone look for the interior.

I managed to sneak in a two hour session after work yesterday. I meant to report my progress but fell asleep
I've nearly finished the unit I'm working on. I'm very low on large square bases so I super glued a pewter vampire shield to the standards base to weigh him down.

Also: Great job, Padre

@Padre - That zombie scene is magnificent! Did you take more photos of it?

@Artobans - The newly painted wall looks good!


My proggress has been creeping:

Day 35 (May 4) - No time for hobby.

Day 36 (May 5) - Cleaned paint from ONE Warzone mini. One is infinitely larger than zero (in percent)!

Day 37 (May 6) - Finished converting three minis & based two of them.

I have now re-crowded my desk with a dozen unfinished little projects, ranging from one big mini to groups of ten, all in different phases. Conversions, basing, basecoats, finishing touches. Scattered interests and too little time result in lost focus and whimsical spurts.  :icon_rolleyes:


Edit: Where are all the pics, guys? Why don't all of you have plogs here with regular picture updates? When you finish something, share a photo! Is it that attaching pics to messages is complicated, requiring third party storage and links? (I find it is a problem, but doable, e.g. bi-weekly.)

Had a struggle moment last night.  Finished 6 more Perry archers constructed, so got in something in for hobbying.  However, almost didn't paint.

I sat there and was feeling all negative about life in general.  I recall this happening in 2015 a few times during my 100 Days of Painting effort, and so suspected that eventually I would encounter this again this time.  Couldn't recall what I had done to get thru it, but decided to just mentally tough it out, and find something to put paint on it.  Decided to keep "searching" for what I was going to paint, and ended the night putting flesh wash on 7 Matorean swords, the metal archer, the youngblood, plus the Marienburg and Reikland Captains.

Phew ... got past it for the day.

So ... 37 days of hobby in a row, 27 days constructing Perry figures in a row, 17 days in a row getting in some painting.  Going to get try to get it out of the way early today, and not have what might have been end of the day pressure that I felt yesterday.

I'll update this thread in a little bit.

I can, but find it easier to do a 1 month only blog post about the hobby progress and then share the pictures

Maybe a discord channel? that way I can just post some pictures on the fly with my phone

Day 38 - worked on my Stormcast. Added gold and blue to the liberators and just blue to the castigators and ballista crew.
Finished retreading the Riverworld series. 5 volumes.
Now starting the book Gloomspite by Andy Clarke. Should be good considering how much I like em

Day38  - Sunday June 7th.

No painting, but drilling and pinning.  Working on my Halfling Cavalry and further repairs to broken minis.

Too much soccer on TV and deliberations about kickstarter spending ... ... ... ...  :closed-eyes:

Glued 3 more archers.  Expect to do some painting this evening.  Feeling a bit blocked regarding the campaign map currently, probably a bit of creativity block.

I've actually been working on something every day, but its all so minor I havn't been coming to update. It's been about 20 minutes of painting every day, but that really only translates as a single colour on a couple of guys. Going to take awhile to get it done, but at least its something!

June 7th:
-I actually got to do the lava bases this day and the transfers for the shoulder pads on the 3 Inceptors. With a tip from Peachy (gotten in one of the Hangout and Hobby sessions) I went to town on adding color to the transfers and after a test subject, I went ahead and did it and I think the results are great and easy to do!
-I also got some building work done on my second riptide, shield build, main weapons build and magnet holes made in them and the arm, then needed to let the greenstuf dry.


I'll probably get some more hobby work done this evening.

Awaken this morning to think the body of water would have to be a fresh water lake with that well being present.  I like the idea that it'd be on a coastal cliff, but the well being so close to the sea, I imagine the water from it would be a bit salty is my guess.

Minor counts!  It keeps the streak alive, especially when time gets tough.

Yesterday I fit in constructing only 3 Perry archers, and I painted blue on my metal Marienburg/Matorean Captain.  It keeps hobbying, constructing, and painting all going on at the same time, and some days this is all that counts.

Day 38 (May 7) - Good hobby day. Worked on some thirty minis, although only finished the piles of wood. I spilled too much skin colour from a drop bottle and had to use it somehow. Discovered I had a nice basecoated Swordsmen unit just lacking paint in skin & shoes. Might get this one painted in the coming week!

Day 39 (May 8) - An hour of painting in the early morning, and organizing the table in the afternoon.

Ready or near ready minis.

Paint queue. Like it varied, to find motivation. Civilians, animals, some oldhammer, dwarfs monsters.

A bucket of Warzone & 40K. Still some conversions needed for the WZ before priming. The painted 40K stuff is going through rebasing.

Day 39  - Monday

More work on the cavalry - need greenstuffing for saddles or blankets, some mail round the upper legs, and as filler where I have glued/pinned the torso to the legs at an angle to sit them better on their mounts.
Bits of paint pots reclaiming, and a bit of work on the courtyard floor of my Coach House


Day 40  - Tuesday
Very little - couple of paint pots, and some playing with highlight colours on the courtyard.

3 more Perry archers created.  And I returned to painting the 17 spearmen, dark brown on boots and straps for the 5 Papal guards.

Also the same brown on 4 Averlander spearmen, and the Mordhiem young blood with the spear, all as part of my Aver River Regiment.  I had started those 4 spearmen way, way, way back to bring my unit of 20 spearmen (including the young blood) up to 24.  But like so many other items, never finished them.  Although this one I blame on the change to 8th, where suddenly I would have need ed even more than 24 on the table top to have a real unit under that edition.  And then End of Times, well, that just doesn't exist in my fantasy world. :icon_wink:

So I'm back to doing some Averlanders, cahcoo! :::cheers::: :icon_biggrin:

Which means I've done painting on my Matoreans (swordsmen), my Tileans (the infamaous mounted crossbowmen), and my Averlanders (the spearmen). :icon_cool:

Day 40 (June 9) - Minimal painting: some red details.

Day 41 (June 10) - Milliput on seven figures. Four got finished.

Also helped my kids in painting. The elder (7yrs) shows some determination - and also frustration. She's at a level where she knows what she wants, but cannot quite achieve it. She actually painted a mini for half an hour, and didn't even finish it.

The younger got paint on five minis. To my surprise, she has actually painted a raven black and given it an orange beak. Maybe her silver & pink period is over?

No worries. If itís basing, its gonna be dead easy for me to do. Donít think it requires a new thread.
Astogranite Debris technical base coat, dry brush tyrant skull (dry) splash some agrax earthshade into the mix. Done. On larger hero bases Iíll stamp on that prestick grass blobs here and there. As long as thereís no effort involved on my part for a base, itís good😺

For Day 42 ... painted boots on 5 Averland crossbowmen (these guys are going to be added to my other 5), and this time only 2 Perry archers constructed, because I'm messing around with a slight conversion on the 3rd, and wasn't sure how I was going to proceed on finishing him, and thus put him away for another time.

Midlam Halflings KS arrived Wednesday Post.
"Halflings Gone Bad 2"  with 8 extra minis of the Town Council 4 set

I really like Midlam stuff.  They do small KS usually 10 -20 minis and the product is well sculpted (mainly Martin Baker I think) and arrives well finished.
No flash, and no mould lines.
I prepped, based, and textured these so that I came down this morning and took a file to the bases tidying up the dried texture filler and they are now in a tray awaiting undercoating.

More pics in my Machinations thread.

New week new progress

Week 6
June 5th:
-Did more work on the Plagueburst Crawler, even got to adding the first finished side panel
-Added Ironcrust/earth to the bases of the Inceptors, but looking at a graphic it was mixed around on which one would crack more then the other and so I messed the idea up on the base though it came out ok and Benthe was happy enough, but noted it down in my document to not mess it up on further models
June 6th:
-Finished the Plagueburst Crawler WOOOOHOOO... or maybe not, now I'm out of Death Guard models to do!!!!
-Might finish up the lava bases on the Inceptors later this evening
June 7th:
-I actually got to do the lava bases this day and the transfers for the shoulder pads on the 3 Inceptors. With a tip from Peachy (gotten in one of the Hangout and Hobby sessions) I went to town on adding color to the transfers and after a test subject, I went ahead and did it and I think the results are great and easy to do!
-I also got some building work done on my second riptide, shield build, main weapons build and magnet holes made in them and the arm, then needed to let the greenstuf dry.
June 8th:
-After finishing the Inceptors I felt like doing a bit more Salamanders and not working on the Riptide, so I made some more progress on the left/lieutenant

Week 7
June 12th:
-Did loads of magnetizing for my 2nd riptide, I also went back to my first riptide to add 2 more magnets as I also fleshed out how I want to work with the Support systems. And I chopped off 2 support systems of my Stealth suits and fixed up the chop off points with some paints as they were on it and had no real function so they had to go, will need to go back to also the ghostkeel for that, but need to put magnets in there also.

This week was a miss for me, but I did have a great gaming day this Thursday. 10 hours of playing with some friends, and was pretty nice. I did maybe 100days in a row is hard for me, and I needed a week of relax. Work in the garden and other stuff.

Kudos to all of you that have been able to keep up with it.

I did get some ideas of what to work for our next hobby game day, so next week I should be back to working on the hobby.

Really nice Dwarves Artobans

Realjuan!  You're back ... I was going to send you a note and see what you'd bene doing and if you were ok.  Good to see your post today!  Don't worry too much about missing time.  It happens.  Remember ... we start the back half of this 100 Days of Hobby next Saturday, so maybe you can pick it back up then, and keep plugging away for 50 Days in a row as your next target :icon_question:

- - -

Day 43 saw me construct 3 Perry billmen.  I'd gotten tired of doing archers, although have now made 2 sets of 12 archers each (72 in all) for Salisbury, Warwick, and York retinues.  That one figure I was trying to do a little bit of conversion work for is still not quite what I was hoping, so not sure what I'm, going to do with that yet.  Then I failed to get thru painting blue on 5 Matorean swordsmen.  Was making so many mistakes, I stopped before getting pissed off more, and left paint to dry on the palette.  Perhaps will go back to this today, yet will see, plenty of painting projects to choose from ... lol.

It is the first time been interested in painting the dwarfs I have from the 7th edition starter set.  Not sure I ever really liked the figures, and not a huge dwarf fan anyway, but maybe I'll at least paint the pack animal and that little wagon, maybe the cannon too.

Well ... not going to start them yet! :icon_lol:

Really been pleased that I've been doing bits on my Averlanders, Matoreans, and Tileans though.  I'm getting close to starting the paint effort for the 28mm Perry Wars of the Roses that I've been constructing.  Been lining them up in rows of 12 on 2 foot sticks for eventual white primer and then begin painting them soon after that.  I do have my eyes on the GW stuff, perhaps even some Skaven that are only partially painted too.  Those latter came from the 8th edition starter set.  And would like to get a brush on the elves in that box as well.

Ok, here is a little update. The last days I didn't get much done Hobby wise and tomorrow is my last day of vacation. So I hope to have some time painting tomorrow.

Week 7:
Saturday 13th:
Finished the test model for my Steel Legion. The contrast paint of Snakebit Leather came out a little dark on the coat, so I will have to drybrush it a little and edge highlight. The rest came out rather well.

Sunday 14th:
I will start the second test model, this time I'm going to mix a little yellow contrast with the Snakebeath Leather, to see how that goes.
Overall I'm rather happy with the results of the contrast for what will become big units of guardsmen.

I hope you noticed I completed the end of season general report, including two stories (http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=46787.msg1063438#msg1063438)? That took up hours of every day leading up to Friday.

For a 'break' (although still very much 'hobby' activivites) on Saturday and Sunday (today) I have been sorting out web-forum versions of more of my old Star Wars D6 campaign background information, resurrected from files from the 1990', which includes scanning old inkjet, electronic typewriter and even pen and pencil sheets!! Two I did recently are the Croomyll System - https://rancorpit.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7958 - and the planet Kyte - https://rancorpit.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7969 . Then there is my ongoing vehicles and starships thread (which I have been forgetting to update here on W-E) at https://rancorpit.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7941 .

I am, due to circumstances, hitting crazy levels of hobby activity.

Later today I have the technicalities of various end of season things to sort out for several of my Tilean Campaign NPC realms and armies, and also communications to send to several players which are to be the advisory words and suggestions of their characters closest confidants and most trusted officers.

Huzzah!

Day 45 - a hodgepodge of things. Work on liberators, bases on trolls, rebased 3 would be Loonbossí for future stuff.

Hobby Day 44: After a huge hassle, fighting with computers, and usual trying to herd cat shenanigans, I managed to get into the group chat with some folks and start playing a Lord of the Rings RPG! It... didn't pan out well, although I'm hopeful for the next round. I did spent a bunch of time repairing some old warhammer though, so that's a win.

Hobby Day 45: Anything hobby counts right? Well in that case I spent the afternoon playing board games with family. Both in room on gamecube and via zoom and browser. There's a great website to play Codebreakers the board game online. Just need some kind of method to chat to each other.

Had intentions of doing more, but life got in the way.  Constructed 3 more Perry billmen and set up the bits to do 9 more (for York's retinue).  Got out an old paint pot of Macharius Solar Orange and managed to get it mixed through much shaking.  Used it to fix the mistakes I was making last Friday on my Matorean swordsmen.  And painted orange to join the blue already on my Mordheim Marienburg/Matorean Captain.

Realjuan!  You're back ... I was going to send you a note and see what you'd bene doing and if you were ok.  Good to see your post today!  Don't worry too much about missing time.  It happens.  Remember ... we start the back half of this 100 Days of Hobby next Saturday, so maybe you can pick it back up then, and keep plugging away for 50 Days in a row as your next target :icon_question:

I think that is a good idea, and I also have an extra motivation. Thursday was a gaming day and we talk about the upcoming Infinity and WH40k new editions. We all said we wanted to play more, but they all way ahead of model count. I have some catching up. I also got a really nice idea of a 40k drawing that I want to make, so it wont all have to be painting and modeling.

I got in painting white on the last 6 of 12 shields for the ral partha spearmen.  I alos researched if there was a known heraldry for Pope Leo IX, and found one ... and so the Pope Bruno for the Imagi-Nations campaign will have red shields with yellow diagonal, and if I get particularly ambitious, I might try doing the 3 yellow crowns above and below the diagonal bar.  Construct 6 of York's billmen, only 3 more to go.

I'm quite satisfied with how much work I have been doing lately!

Week 6
June 5th:
-Did more work on the Plagueburst Crawler, even got to adding the first finished side panel
-Added Ironcrust/earth to the bases of the Inceptors, but looking at a graphic it was mixed around on which one would crack more then the other and so I messed the idea up on the base though it came out ok and Benthe was happy enough, but noted it down in my document to not mess it up on further models
June 6th:
-Finished the Plagueburst Crawler WOOOOHOOO... or maybe not, now I'm out of Death Guard models to do!!!!
-Might finish up the lava bases on the Inceptors later this evening
June 7th:
-I actually got to do the lava bases this day and the transfers for the shoulder pads on the 3 Inceptors. With a tip from Peachy (gotten in one of the Hangout and Hobby sessions) I went to town on adding color to the transfers and after a test subject, I went ahead and did it and I think the results are great and easy to do!
-I also got some building work done on my second riptide, shield build, main weapons build and magnet holes made in them and the arm, then needed to let the greenstuf dry.
June 8th:
-After finishing the Inceptors I felt like doing a bit more Salamanders and not working on the Riptide, so I made some more progress on the left/lieutenant

Week 7
June 12th:
-Did loads of magnetizing for my 2nd riptide, I also went back to my first riptide to add 2 more magnets as I also fleshed out how I want to work with the Support systems. And I chopped off 2 support systems of my Stealth suits and fixed up the chop off points with some paints as they were on it and had no real function so they had to go, will need to go back to also the ghostkeel for that, but need to put magnets in there also.
June 14th:
-Finished magnetizing the Riptide and build up the 2 Shielded Missile Drones (without the flying stand as I'm missing normal 32mm bases to mount them on, so I can cross that off my pledge this month.
-Painted up 3 support systems for the first Riptide
June 15th:
-Finished painting the Primaris Lieutenant(or Leftenant) and started with his base of Ironearth/crust.
-Applied first layer of Ulthuan Grey (my final white color before White Scar edge highlights) on my Coldstar Commander


Still thinking about a discord channel for ease of sharing pictures, who would be up for that? Maybe even use it for hobby time talk?

I started on the chaos ogres today. I found some long bases to mount them on [I didn't have any of the old, large square bases]. I planned on doing more but work got in the way.

Over the last 27 days I have constructed 108 Perry 28mm Wars of the Roses figures.  There are 72 archers (retinues for Salisbury, Warwick, and York), 24 billmen, 12 handgunners.  That is an average of 4 per day.  I started off typically doing 6 per day, although more recently it has usually just been 3 per day.

Going to go do some more painting of those 17 Ral Partha 25mm out of print spearsmen.

Painted scabbards on 12 of 17 spearmen.  Painted belts, pouches, straps, scabbards on 12 Tudor retinue bill/spearmen.

Week 7:
Saturday 13th:
Finished the test model for my Steel Legion. The contrast paint of Snakebit Leather came out a little dark on the coat, so I will have to drybrush it a little and edge highlight. The rest came out rather well.

Sunday 14th:
I will start the second test model, this time I'm going to mix a little yellow contrast with the Snakebeath Leather, to see how that goes.
Overall I'm rather happy with the results of the contrast for what will become big units of guardsmen.

Monday 15th
Added some paint on some basic guardsmen. Hopefull I can take some pictures of the finished and semi finished models.

Yesterday evening I was to tired to paint some more, the running courses have intensified. So yesterday it was 5,6km in 35minutes.

PLUS
Tomorrow is DAY 50

Need to do something special or have an intensive day on the Hobby - I know there is a Meet 'n Greet on the cards, but for me that is pm, so I should get active in the morning.

However there is just so much football (soccer) on TV   :engel:

Yes, Friday is Day 50!  Not sure what I'm going to do, yet hope to do something, and perhaps do a bunch, but will see.  Got to get thru today first!

And Saturday is the Greet & Paint, not Friday!  Saturday is the first day of the second half, and folks can kick that off with some hobby time when joining us at 10am EST, 3pm GMT on Saturday.

Sounds like Midaski will be watching soccer kickoffs on T.V.

Senior Moment  :biggriin:

I lose track of what day it is.
Thought today was Friday - oops

The soccer is 3 live games - one around 12.45 and the second at 3.00pm which is my local (20 miles away) team, Brighton, and then there is a game on BBC in the evening around 7.45pm kick-off I think.

I shall join at some stage on Saturday - I have a new HD webcam to show off  :closed-eyes:

So Saturday hobby stuff may be waving a brush in the air for 10 seconds    :engel:

shit got serious.
After a shopping trip with Mrs.Realjuan, I was told that I could buy as many minis as I want...with the only condition that all other minis have to be painted and I must have played at least one game. She could just had said no more minis.

I already have a project to start on Friday, and I will try to force myself to document it with pictures. Restarting on the second half with good vibs, and I have to say even thought I did not complete my goal for the first half. I did way more than I did last year.

Took a couple of days' break after the stupid amounts of work on the recent report and illustrated stories, although I did work on the campaign in the form of working out home-rules for the carroccio (involving the players', and some other forum members' opinions), sorting out reinforcements and supplies for several NPC armies, a more than one hour long conference discussing plans with my skaven player, and lots of e-mails back and forth discussing orders for the new season with two other players. And that's me taking a break from the real work!!!!

So, actually, bold me up across the board. And today I got some new enamel black (for undercoat) through the post so I can re-commence painting, just in time for Saturday's meet and paint!

Day 45 (June 14) - Started painting a couple of Mithril figures. Gandalf's grey robe is problematic.

Days 46-48 (June 15 to 17) - Progress painting mixed figures, 30 to 60 minutes per day.

Day 49 (June 18) - Painting with my younger daughter. Finished & based a bunch of figures.

Day 50 (June 19) - Last touch-ups, photos, a little bit of work on one raven.

So, half way through. Now off to celebrate the midsummer. Nothing miniature related for least four days.

Spent some time and effort on 3 more pikemen, but this was a real struggle to figure out what bit I was going to use.  Took a break, came back later, and kept it simple.  Done!  Also got in a wee bit of painting by touching up 8 to 10 of the cloaks on the ral partha spearmen, using XV-88 on someand Mephiston Red on the others.

Oh take care Arto!

I managed to get some more progress in the start of week 8


Week 7
June 12th:
-Did loads of magnetizing for my 2nd riptide, I also went back to my first riptide to add 2 more magnets as I also fleshed out how I want to work with the Support systems. And I chopped off 2 support systems of my Stealth suits and fixed up the chop off points with some paints as they were on it and had no real function so they had to go, will need to go back to also the ghostkeel for that, but need to put magnets in there also.
June 14th:
-Finished magnetizing the Riptide and build up the 2 Shielded Missile Drones (without the flying stand as I'm missing normal 32mm bases to mount them on, so I can cross that off my pledge this month.
-Painted up 3 support systems for the first Riptide
June 15th:
-Finished painting the Primaris Lieutenant(or Leftenant) and started with his base of Ironearth/crust.
-Applied first layer of Ulthuan Grey (my final white color before White Scar edge highlights) on my Coldstar Commander
June 17th:
-Redone some of the Ironearth stuff on the base of the Lieutenant as it was to thick I think before and came loose of the base
-Did the off white 1st layer on the Coldstar and a bit of the 2nd layer white
June 18th:
-Finished the base of the Lieutenant, he is done now

Week 8
June 19th:
-More progress on the Coldstar, did the 2nd layers of white did the recess shades and grey panels / hands and the 1st layer of orange on helmet and pauldron

Day 50!

Got a bit additionally creative with 3 billmen last night ... making them a halberds instead.  One is in heavy armor and a knight's helmet, will serve as the unit's commander.  The other two also have halberds in a bit of a defensive & combat position so not just at the ready.  Might make some more guys like this in that kind of pose for the unit of footsergeants that I'm doing for York here.  Also painted blue on 5 more Marienburg Merchant House/Mataorean Swordsmen too.  A good way to celebrate the 50th Day, and with a glass of wine! :icon_cool: :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Gankom ... not sure if ya meant that there's been something for each since Wednesday or not? So I've updated the most recent. :icon_wink:

- - - - - -

Set up for glueing 24 figures last night, 12 archers and 12 billmen for Somerset.  The Lancasterian side of the war already has a unit of archers and men-at-arms for Clifford, and a unit of archers and spearmen/billmen for Tudor, but setting up those 24 figures with their bodies heads and arms takes the first step towards moving the Lancastrians forward alongside of what has already been done for the Yorkists.  It seemed to move my creativity along as well in a different way than creating 3 or 6 at a time.

Having an issue with hobby focus. My wife got me a new chair and that helps for sure.

Yep, I have my moments.  For me it is usually associated with being at the end of the day, and I'm so tired from everything else that it is hard to move something hobby related forward.  Once I get going it is usually ok.  Although the painting can be less neat, and the construction difficult from a creative perspective.  And during the day, there can be so many other things that need to get done that it can be tough to decide to do hobby first ... lol.

Day 51 & 52. Got a bunch of older metal models out to fix. They've been falling apart so I got some fancy new glue to try and keep them together!

Spoilers: It didn't work. Left it a day or two to dry fully and didn't make a difference. So...

Day 53 & 54: Repaired the models for a second time using my older metal glue. Still not great, still pretty fragile, but holding better.

OK I have some catching up to do.
My PC 'died' on Friday and although I managed to get it back for a while I lost it again Saturday morning and only got it back earlier today.

All the hardware was fine - it was a couple of corrupted 'updates' - thanks Microsoft.

Anyway limited use on my phone, and a bit of Greet on my wife's iPad is all I managed.

I didn't realise how much I use my PC every day.

Still hobby time went up.

So through:
Day 50    -  Fri June 19th
Day 51
Day 52
Day 53
Day 54
Day 55   -  Weds Jun 24th


I have done the following:

Played at fieldstone wall painting as suggested by Zygmund in my 'Machinations' thread. I am not sure how successful I have been - tried with various shades of brown, and not sure about the results so far.

I have also done some of the wooden fencing on my fields, and the woodpile I knocked up a few days back got a basecoat as well.

Halflings - based and textured a load more, doing something every day on them - made up some extra Wargames Atlantic slingers, so I now have 10.
Also, inspired by what Padre was making on Saturday last, I made a few pikemen both from the aforementioned plastic set, and from drilling out the sword hand of old GW halflings, and using steel pike.
 
I now have 203 halflings, trimmed, based, textured and just awaiting an undercoat.

I've been making a little bit of progress every day (except for today) on my halfling pike.

Today, however, got filled with chores, cleaning, re-writing a chapter of my attempt at a book, and feeding/teaching/exercising with (in the form of a bike ride) the children.

I wish now I have restarted on my book months ago, instead of flailing around during the lockdown unsure what to do, with bouts of hobby to distract from my panic!

I have been reading about this for the last few days. Touch wood, my two machines and Ruth's seem to have got through unscathed - although I may have jinxed myself by saying so!

There was a dodgy update in late March apparently, 19?? I think, and then Update 2000 was corrupted as well.

It seemed to have affected certain brands of printers, and spun off from there, as much as I understood of the explanation  :biggriin:

Still I got a new printer anyway, as my Brother 350C was old and the yellow wouldn't print.
The new one however has a very loose power cable, and I think I may have a faulty USB cable too - the wireless connection is allowing me to print, but I would like to have the cable connection too.

Anyway
Day 56 - June 25th

Another 10 plastic halflings on the worktable, and I have brought my Dremmel down from the Shen - drilling out the hands on those metal halflings manually is proving too much like hard work.


Actually it is 2.10pm here, very hot, and I think  I am going to have a cold beer.

Hertog Jan or Cornet that is the question?   :engel:

Which day is it?

June 25 - Put some paint on a couple of animals. Cleaned three Ral Partha 1979 hobbits. Diminutive. Great details.

June 26 - Continued working the bases of a couple of Warhammer Quest rats.

Made a hard decision NOT to take any miniatures with me to the summer cottage. So no updates from me for a while.

I finished basing the khorne knight army. I planned on giving them arms [most of them are the old, metal figures] but gave up as its near impossible to find an arm in any range that fits into that troublesome left socket.

I also did some work on the Ro-man diorama i'm working on [see Robot Monster z grade movie to understand the reference]

Painted bolt gun onto the 4 newest spearmen for my Aver River Regiment.  Way back I had some how painted black on their armor as a base for the bolt gun, but not on the helemts.  So last night I got lazy, and painted the bolt gun onto the white.  As it turned out, it looks a little shiner, but no big deal, and besides, they'll be in the back row anyway.  Also, 3 more archers done being constructed and so now I have the first full  unit for Somerset created.

Cut arms and heads, and began matching bodies for Somerset's 12 billmen, but no glueing today.  The creativity of these Perry 28mm WotRs figures is getting tougher, especially with the archers.

Trying to make every figure different, and the more of these that get done, the more I have to check them against the ones already made.  The billmen are easier to a degree, except there are only 6 sets of arms.  With the archers, they have 10 sets, some of which can be interchanged, if they have the same clothing type.  And of those 10 sets, there are three groups of 2 sets, one group of 3 sets, and only one set that isn't interchangeable.

Anyway ... I got the start of Pope Leo IX's heraldry on 5 speamen, the diagonal yellow bars.  Not sure how I'm going to do the 3 crowns above and below the bar, but going to give it an effort at some point.  Also, finished edging the blankets on my Knights of the Aver River unit, and I am looking forward to finishing this unit.

So Realjuan ... I get reading 40K novel as maybe being part of the hobby, perhaps like when one does historical research for historical miniatures, although what is this about planning painting a suitcase :icon_question:

- - - - - -

Couldn't get into being creative with the billmen.  So I got out 6 Perry light cav horses and glued them together instead.  Simple and not a lot of mind energy needed for that ... lol.  Then I struggled painting a new layer of flesh on the 17 spearmen.  Not enough definition in the detail on the faces to really get them to pop, and so I covered over most if not all of the wash, and will probably call it good because I don't want to waste time on stuff that'll drive me wacky.

Probably it was not described properly.

I am planning on how to make a suitcase to take minis/paints/etc when I travel. Weekends, or even week trips.

I never had a painting area myself, but I am working on that too. What I used to have what small boxes to store and sometimes to take with me.

What I have is

The citadel painting station, I never use. Basically I store paints there. I need to sell it or learn how to use it.  In the middle top is Mrs.Realjuan small 1-mini transport, and the black/orange lunch box can hold 3-5 minis with 10 citadel paint pots, brushes, and it also works as a wet pallet. It has some protection for the minis, and I would rate 8/10 for small trips. The box on the right is a tool box where I used to keep my paints, and its the right size to carry on a backpack, but has no compartments. I would like to transform it into a painting rack to take during weekends trips. I would like to laser cut or do something so that paints to fly around during transport, and maybe even add mini compartments or brush compartments. Soemthing similar to https://www.warmage.de/info/Kickstarter-Information.html (https://www.warmage.de/info/Kickstarter-Information.html)

Still not in a creative mood for constructing figures, so one more horse.  However a decent night of painting armor on two of the horses for my Knights of the Aver River, as well as side leather and saddle straps on all six.  Plus got in the padded armor on 5 of my Aver River Regiment crossbowmen.

Week 9:
Friday, Saturday & Sunday:
I started painting 4 new figures: 1 goblin, 1 knight, 1 cherubin & 1 tiny griphon.
I didn't find time to photograph the other finished figures, I hope to do that this evening.

Wensday 01/07
I finished some more details on the above figures and I started a Mercenary figure for Mordheim I built a long time ago. He will be the start of my new Marienburg army.

The last several days I have very much been pushing myself into the hobby room to get some thing accomplished.  It hasn't been easy from a mental perspective.  Some of it is tiredness after work, some of it is tiredness of gluing figures, some of it is even tiredness of covid 19 crud.

I recall this kind of thing happening during my 100 Days of painting in 2015, although obviously not tacked on by the covid crud.  And I just kept pushing though it. I am getting small breakthroughs, so I know in the long run this is helping me accomplish stuff I wouldn't have done otherwise.

Oh, and updated above. :::cheers:::

Day 62: Had a quick Canada Day warhammer game with my brother, that in classic faction no one actually won.

Day 63: I built three spearmen, tidied up some metal guys, and added purple to a cloak!

The last of the 12 Perry Light Cav horses was constructed.  And I thought that little project would be over in a jiffy, guess not .  Also painted blue on my converted Priest of Manaan.  I made this back during one of the Animosity campaigns, if I recall.  He has militia body (the one with the cloak) and legs and arms, a white wolf head, and a staff that I now remember hewing from a sprue frame, but it has a head and tail of a dragon, or in this case a sea monster, that has been attached to the top and the bottom respectively.  Before I had just painted his flash, hair, and the staff, but now I have chosen the same blue as the Marienburg Merchant House/Matorean swordsmen unit. :icon_biggrin: :icon_cool:

There had been a hold up on finishing one handgunner when I was making a unit of 12 further back.  Last night nipped that baby in the bud by taking another one apart, to have a different position and give him a different arm, stealing his original arm, and giving it to the last figure to complete them both.  Kind of a pain, but those 12 are now a complete unit constructed.  Also put Badab black on the 5 Papal spearsmen, and so getting very close to completion of those.

Looks like little reporting recently ... must be the July 4th holiday kicking in at the moment.

(GP ... we got a good number of others outside the US participating.)

Good point, what's up with that? :icon_wink:

After a wonderful 4th of July putting a flower garden in for the lady friend and feasting on an exquisite meal of cold beet soup from a Russian recipe, salad with nuts and cheese, a salmon souffle, scrumptious French white wine, and a little bit of coffee and chocolate for desert I returned home to force myself to construct one Perry archer and put some paint on my Priest of Manaan and the sword wielding Mordheim young blood.

I have been distracted for several days now, hobby wise, by the task of putting up a Star War's RP adventure scenario on the D6 Star Wars 'RancorPit' forum.

Various models and scanned images have been used, and it takes me some time to convert and edit old text files ...

Day 67 - finished the bases for my gloomspite. This completes ĎKrasbogís Gitzí  army of Gloomspite. When I have more energy and it doesnít feel like someone forced a spear through my shoulder blades, I will post a pic of the complete army.

This now gives me 3 complete AoS army,s of at least 2500 pts.

The Matorean Disciples of Sigmar - Greywater Cities of Sigmar
Shivertoothís Headbangers - Orruk Big Waagh army
Krasbogís Gitz - Gloomspite Gitz

My Stormcast is at 2100 pts and my Duardin is at 1710 pts
With a chaos rats and beast men at 1780 pts.
Ogre - 0 pts.

So I actually bought some minis on the road to the summer cottage, and having arranged for this threw some paints and brushes into the bag. And now I'm painting!  :-)

May 1 - Test models. Sci-fi, so a little unaccustomed to the look & feel of the figures. Green & orange looks fancy. Started basecoating.

May 2 - More basecoating. Decided to try and do base colours & some highlights on 15 minis while on holidays.

May 3 - None. Rest day.

May 4 - Basecoated some assault rifles dark grey.

May 5 - Helped my daughters paint & did some orange highlights.

Friday ... Day 65
Watching a 9th edition battle video report while pretending to paint.

Saturday ... Day 66
Reading some of the new 9th edition rules. I really hope to play more + some of padre star wars fluff.

Sunday ... Day 67
Sat with the wife to transferring more paints into dropper bottles. She enjoy that and we get to work together.

Monday ... Day 68
I will probably try hunt and organize unfinished models that I have around the house + attic + cellar. I just hope I have not lost any. If I am lucky, maybe a little bit of painting in discord?

This is mostly my wife's hobby but I have started to like it. In case you interested here are links to the pictures...no preview to make suspense.

Friday, Day 65. Many of the models have begun to blend together and speak to me. They whisper "paint faster"...

Alas, they are ignored. My dad is on a streak reorganizing the storage shed. So it falls to me to repack the warhammer. I spent all weekend unpacking, fixing, repacking and restoring some bins. It was a ton of work, and I'm counting it as hobby time because I was up to my elbows in models all day.

So that's Friday to Monday for me, (Because I type this during my break from the next box!)

I finished building the interior for the Panzer. I'm tempted to add an engine block and make the whole thing disassemable [is that even a word?] so that the inner workings can be seen

I also finished a Howling Griffon and did some more work on the two Imperial guard officers [which are made from the new commissar kit]
And can I just say as a long time Imperial guard fan I HATE the new commissar model

Today, Tuesday, painted more on my halfling pike.

Finding problems with my use of acrylics. Gonna have to change technique again. I did the skin areas as a white undercoat and washed flesh on. Then I black enamel undercoated elsewhere and painted the clothes etc in acrylic over. Now, as I come to the point when I can highlight the flesh, loads of it has already worn off down to grey plastic! Aaargh. Maybe I should have primed grey first, then white, then a wash?

I hate, after 35+ years of painting, being an amateur again!

But I can't go back to breathing white spirits all the time!

I shall just have to keep trying until I find a new successful technique!

Not sure I am following this, although when I am using acrylics, I always use a primer first on the minis, usually a spray primer.

Update above for ya. :::cheers:::

Never had to prime in enamels. Just black undercoat, then off I went.

Now I am sticking to a black undercoat for all non flesh areas, enamel. Then painting with acrylics over so I don't breath too many white spirit fumes whilst constantly cleaning brushes.

The flesh, though, I undercoated in white acrylic (no primer) then washed flesh (watered down) on, intending later to highlight. But whilst I have handled the figure to paint clothes and armour and weapons etc, I have rubbed the flesh wash and white undercoat off down to the plastic.

I now know why acrylic painters prime figures first.

Like I said, thousands of enamel painted figures, and I do mean thousands, and yet I am now an amateur again.

Monday and Tuesday are more cleaning, reorganizing and more. My brothers purging through his stuff and sold me a bunch of his stuff, so now I've got to find places for that as well. But still, more for the plastic addiction!

I've preordered the big new 40k box but honestly rethinking it. Spending a weekend seeing how much is in storage or already needs work tends to me one rethink getting another big box of it.

That is a bummer.  I don't use any enamels, only acrylic on a spray primer.   The spray primer isn't good to breath in, and usually do it in a ventilated area or outside on a dry non windy day.

And I prime in different colors depending on what I am doing, although most of the time white.  If a figure has a good deal of armor on it, then I prime with black.  I also use gray and brown from time to time depending on my mood.

Found it difficult to push myself to do hobby stuff.  Painted boltgun on one more horse for Aver River knights, and constructed one billman.  Mentally it was all I could do to do that, and was a bit sloppy with the painting wiht a lack of ability to focus and too much rush to just do it.

I am getting a dedicated hobby area set up in my office. All I need is something to store my paints. Found something cool on Etsy. I need to finish unpacking everything and take stock in how my brushes have fared over the years of being packed away. I may not have been involved in the 100 days of hobby at the start but should be able to once its done.

Any tips for spray painting in a basement? Its too humid to do undercoats outside and my only option indoors is the unfinished basement. The only kind of ventilation I can do is opening the bulkhead and the top of the indoor stairs when the kids are in bed at night. I know some people have/do use a spray painting mask but considering the pandemic those are hard to come by.

Everyone is out of respirators, you'd have to spend an arm and a leg for them.  Suppose that could be possible, if you catch covid 19, there are folks losing limbs over this when the blood vessels in the extremities are overwelmed and destroyed by the virus.  Amputations have occured.

Nah, wear your masks, keep your distances, have your family do the same.  And wait for the humidity to fade. :icon_cool:

I know Soth uses spray paints in his basement. In a cardboard box and some kind of ventilator.
You can always make masks from fabrics, like we use in Belgium when we go shopping. They aren't like the FFP2 masks needed for specialist work, but they do the job (especially when made out of thick cotton).
So I would open the bulk head, put the figures in a cardboard box, put on a cotton mask and use a ventilator to get some draft.

Because we had to go to the doctor to get vaccinations for our 1 year old, I didn't get much done.

Struggled to get hobby stuff done again, that's two days in a row of having to push to do anything.  Painted some more on the young blood swordsman, and constructed one more billman.  My painting was not as neat as I'd like, and couldn't get the position for the arms on the billman in a way I'd prefer.  Bah.

Decided to end my painting streak of 60 days, and my constructing 28mm Perry WotRs at 50 days.  Just too tired, and my energy level has been so low for both these streaks, that it is just time to free the mind and stay focused on the over all 100 Days of Hobby for these last 30 days.  Gong to do whatever I feel like doing and try to enjoy it from a creative place, moving from one project to another with whatever happens to float the boat on any given day.  I want these last 30 days to be fun if at all possible. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

- - -

And today ... I worked on creating more material for some fantasy role playing sessions with my nephews, and it looks like a niece is also going to join in on the fun.  I haven't run a straight up role playing campaign like this in years and years.  So far I have pulled together a map for a city, written a brief history for the city, and have begun to draft up some ideas for NPCs and some sort of adventure inside the city that will involve merchant princes, money, mystery, and powerful forces moving through the streets and docks seeking their fortunes or trying to over throw others who are seeking their's.

I have set the game in an early renaissance stage, might even throw the city onto the Old World map some where south of Tobaro on the coast.  And of course include giant rat men running in the sewers.  The nephews and niece don't know about that yet.  :icon_mrgreen:

Got together with three of the nephews via zoom this evening, and we did up some characters using a cross of the AD&D 1st & 2nd editions, and a little bit of Harnmaster thrown in for good measure.  I've been waiting for a new edition for a set of role playing rules that are low fantasy in nature, and that I purchased from a kickstarter, but they haven't been completed yet.  I'd considered using WFRPing too, although that would require me to learn a new system as well, and I have decided since the summer is a wasting, time to just get started!

So we have made three characters so far.  A human fighter/cavalier with the background of being a city wall guard that weilds an arquebus.  A halfling thief who doesn't like his own family's racket, and has started out on his own, now having enemies that are related to him.  And an elf assassin who has went awol from a mercenary outfit that is attempting to track him down.

There will likely be three more characters as well, but in the meantime, plenty for me to be developing to use during the gaming sessions.

It was intended to be about the German head of state; being shown the Dicker Max but that ones on hold as the Dragon 1:35th Dicker Max is a f**king nightmare. I was up until 1:00, trying to find parts that weren't listed on its instructions.

In other news. The custom assault gun is coming along well enough
I also picked up the two little utility vehicles that are now part of the 40k scenery sets. I'm turning one into a forklift [ole] and another into a looted Thomas coin ride

I've been doing a little painting and building the past few days. Wed I built 3 more spearmen and 3 space marines.

Thursday I painted and am slowly inching towards completing some more of these deathwatch and my special project. I've already got things set up and I'll be working on them again after supper tonight. All my hobby contributions for this have been small little baby steps, but its real nice to have something going on.

-Added a few washes to the 10 man Fire Warriors
July 5th:
-Build a Wizard and his Apprentice for Frostgrave
-Build 2 Men at Arms and 2 Crossbowmen/Marksmen for Frostgrave
July 6th:
-Just a little bit of painting done on the Foetid Bloat Drone, like some of you had some mushed brains I also had that a little and due to some heavy lifting also some shaky hands that didn't help

Week 11
July 10th:
-Finished up building my cabinets for the hobby room and started to move stuff in their new locations (mostly my (starwars) lego, but some warhammer also, will continue that today the 11th)

I've had an idea about what to do with the 'space Thomas' utility vehicle. I'm going to mount an ork on it, feeding a coin into the slot. The joke being the orks THINK the only way it will work is by feeding it a steady stream of exact change.

Additionally I've done a little more on the custom SPG and i finished another Howling Griffon. I'm also organizing 20 years worth of spare Empire parts

Spent some time last night taking my city map for the role playing game with nephews and niece, and increasing the size of the districts to 8 1/2 x 11 sheets.  Then I began filling in the names of the city gates, markets, military and governmental buildings, the names of bridges over the river, and other prominent buildings in each of the 12 districts.

Here is how the districts are laid out with their names, and from north at the top to south at the bottom ...

A.  Nobles  B.  Merchants  C.  Clothiers  D.  Shambles

>  River  >  River  >  River  >  River  >  Ocean

E.  Stonemasons  F.  Theater  G.  Doge's  H.  Shipwright

I.  Dark  J.  Tanners  K.  Meat  L.  Livestock

There are two bridges between the Nobles and Stonemason Districts ... Soldier's Bridge and Stone Bridge.  And there are four bridges between the Merchants and Theater District ... Short Bridge, Song Bridge, Green Bridge, Long Bridge. 

So far each of the districts has at least 4 buildings listed for them.  I am going to be placing the player characters in the Clothier's District, and so I am providing the players with 20 of the locations in that district that would be relatively well known to them and on the main streets.  The whole area north of the river will give me and them plenty to keep them occupied.  If they slip into the area just over the river, there are some details that will need to be worked out in advance, yet a good GM can keep things moving north of the river, and this is where most of my creative development will initially be located.

I like Padre's maps! :icon_biggrin: :icon_cool: :eusa_clap: :::cheers:::

Created an equipment cost list from from the old 1st Edition AD&D players handbook to email to my nephews and niece.  And don't be confused ... this was done using a photo copier, a paper cutter, and the scanner on the photocopier and then attach it to an email from my computer ... all things I didn't own in my younger days ... lol.  And this was to take what was on two pages, and put it on to one for them to have and use as a starting point for equiping their characters.

The longer project was developing a map of the sewers for the city adventures that I am planning for them.  I only got thru doing two of the Districts, so 10 more to go!  It'll go quicker now that I have a pattern for their development, although initially I probably won't need more than the first 4 District mapped anyway.

Put together some emails for nephews on armor class, thieves, and assassins.  Also continued development of a map of sewers for the fantasy role playing city state.  There will be 10 foot wide tunnels with 2 1/2 foot walkways on both sides, 7 1/2 tunnels with walkways on one side, 5 foot tunnels with no walkways, and 2 1/2 foot tunnels with no walkways, plus 15 inch pipes emptying into these.

Padre those maps are amazing, I love them.

Bit of a slow weekend. I actually took Sunday as a near total break from the internet just to hang out with family and do stuff in real life. Still got some hobby stuff done.

Friday and Saturday night I painted. Not much. Not only am I slowly chipping away at stuff, but my focus is all over the place so I tend to paint this set of 5 guys, and then change my mind and do that set of 5 guys...

But at least its painting!

Sunday my brother and I finished a lot of the warhammer organizing and had a small game using the stuff he recently sold me. Turned into a pretty blood stalemate but I think that's because more focus is on the banter rather then the gameplay!

The maps were drawn in the mid 1990s, the labels added with an electronic typewriter. I had to scan them and do a bit of editing to include them in the rewritten adventure scenario. I can't bring myself to look too closely at them though because there is so much I would do different now, and I would end up spending hours trying to to edit the maps.

Day 75 - tried some nuln oil to tone down the brightness and started 2 new bases for the crew of the flame cannon.  Only doing minimums at the moment because we are crazy busy and Iím just too worn out. Another 15 days straight. Taking this weekend off for sure.

Worked further on the map making for the city sewers for the fantasy roleplaying campaign that is suppose to start in Thursday night.

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Inventoried the whole Wars of the Roses 28mm Perry project.

60 Painted (24 foot sergeants, 24 archers, 12 men-at-arms)

156 constructed (42 foot sergeants, 90 archers, 12 pikemen, 12 handgunners)

114 at least need to be construct although there will be more (30 foot sergeants, 42 archers, 30 men-at-arms, 12 med/light cavalry)

... Figures on sprues ...

12 med/light cav bodies (horses are already constructed)

90 regular bodies which provides enough for the 72 needed above, and thus 18 more possible (probably 12 crossbowmen or 12 more handguns, plus 6 more that can be used for more bill/spears or intermixed with men-at-arms)

36 men-at-arm bodies + 22 leader bodies from regular sprues = 58 possible men-at-arms, although some of these can be used for leader types in bill/spear units or whatever, and there are plenty here for the 30 men-at-arms needed.

60 + 156 + 12 + 90 + 36 + 22 = 376 currently.  Will probably buy more. :icon_lol:

I'm getting ready for 40k 9th edition coming out and dusting off some armies that are apparently considered bottom tier. Gotta make it exciting! So;

Monday: I touched up some older deathwatch.

Tuesday: Spent the morning painting silver arms. Also spent a lot of time plotting out how I'm going to turn the marines from the Indominus box into Deathwatch. Plus coming up with lore, background, names, fitting them into the current lore, etc.

Completed armour on the halfling pikemen. Feel ashamed at their amateurishness compared to some of the work I see here, but I am trying to console myself by thinking there are 36 of them, and that I want them to match the style of all my other figures, and that as long as they look ok in the story pictures, that's good.

Did a little more today. I was going to glue the 'magic' tracks to the Dicker Max but realized it would be easier to paint with them off.

The problem with 'magic' tracks is that although they can create a realistic 'sag' appearance, they often need to be attached individually. I'm yet to find an easy way to do it. On the plus side; they don't decay like the old, rubber ones.

I also did some more work on the SPG's interior.

More sewer mapping completed.  I wasn't liking how it was coming out, then an idea dawned on me.  If I removed one of the main arterial lines, that opened up more creative possibilities.  Bingo!  Started using some of the old map as a draft, and now need to redraw on a new copy.  However, think it is moving in a much better direction now with it being less crowded.

Ended up tearing up 4 of 6 8x11 1/2 maps and redoing the sewers completely.  It is so much better than my first draft of crud.  Pun intended.

The city map stretches out over 12 full pages, and I only kept those two maps of the sewers.  Looking forward to extending the sewers into the other 6 maps at some point, although the players will have plenty to keep them occupied with the first 6.

Campaign is suppose to start this evening. Doesn't look like 3 of 6 are going to attend, so we'll see what happens.

I'm beginning to get an itch to get back to some painting, so that is a good thing! :::cheers:::

A short yet good session of gaming with nephews last night.

We reviewed their characters, their questions, the maps of the city and the locations the characters are aware of in the district their characters live ... the top 20 buildings including gates, inns, ale houses, ale hall, shops & taverns.  We also reviewed other prominant buildings in the other 11 districts of the city that they would at least know exist ... like gates, markets, governmental buildings, bridges, etc.

Day 78 - finished my last squad of Liberators

Day 79 - black on their crossbows and I used the leftover black for the shadow warriors. They have the astrogranite debris with the black trim and they are utterly plastic in colour. No undercoating at all. Just brilliant. Some days the brain doesnít deserve the meagre amounts of oxygen it gets.

Took some time last night to organize all the paper stuff being generated for the roll playing campaign and updating things from Thursday night's activities.  Also, I've assigned places for each player to be currently living, the ex-city gate guard at the Oak Fire Inn near the North Gate, the hobbit thief whose left the family business at Lalia's Guesthouse also near the North Gate, and the elf assassin whose gone awol from the mercenary troop that is now looking for him will be at Bardo's Lodge(house), and I intend to make small maps for each of these places next.

The itch to paint is definitely returning as I face the various unfinished figures staring at me from the table top.

Those look good Artoban! I quite like the colouring on the stormcast. I'm going for a darkish green with brigher trim, but I've been really tempted by a white and dark colour like that.

I still can't get used to the AoS models' style, but they are nice Artoban!

Really close to finishing my halflings. I've botched their flesh, but it's taken me so long to get here I can't find the energy to correct.

I've been known to constantly repaint the littlest of things.  It is a main reason why I have not finished the 12 Benevento spearmen and 5 Papal spearmen yet.  I sometimes make the smallest of errors and it bothers me until I fix it.  Most folks would never notice the issues, except perhaps in a magnified photo, but I notice, and it pisses me off until I do something about it. :icon_lol:

Did some more organization and prep work for the role playing game for next week.  The prep work was beginning to make maps on graph paper of the various locations listed previously.  With tomorrow expected to be very hot and humid, going to get sleep early tonight, so I can get up and get some things done before the weather becomes to yucky.  Including some hobby things! :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Really close now to basing my pike. Just the pike heads to paint, and a decision on whether to attempt eyes or not. Plus some bits of tidying that still need doing.

So close

Here are about half of them ...

Day 82 - received my SC Vanguard today from eBay. Bought a used unit for almost 1/2 price because the swords were used and not the axes. Good deal and I like the axes anyways. Turns out they had no more in stock and sent me a brand new kit with everything at the same price. Gotta like it 😺

The last three days have got me real close. Just need to milliput and paint the bases. I like them ranked up. There are six 2x2 bases in the middle, convenient for the battlefield. Hopefully not too inconvenient for my story pictures ...

That's a LOT of work for a couple of moment's feeling like a child again, making ratatat drum beat noises as I lined them up!

Warcry! Thank you GP! Freakin heavy box. Thereís my day 84

Btw - itís 7:40 pm. Yes.  Bed. 26 days straight or something like that.

Check out the terrain

And yet another edit. These guys can be added to my skaven/beast man army. Was my lowest point army, now a full 2500 pts.

I worked some more on the terrain, removing mold lines, flash and other bits. They are almost ready to be primed.
I'm also trying to construct a goblin idol from the throne of the goblin king from the hobbit set. The back is just open, so I need to work that out. Do you guys have some ideas to make it a little rock like?

No, it's a Wednesday.

Why is Wednesday off limits?
Middle of the week?

Just heading for bed and I lock the door but what is sitting outside?

Warcry! Thank you GP! Freakin heavy box. There’s my day 84

Btw - it’s 7:40 pm. Yes.  Bed. 26 days straight or something like that.
I'm impressed that UPS was so quick and didn't charge as much as USPS.  Sent on Saturday and even with the border shut down, obviously the mail is still going through.  And in excellent shape too.

Check out the terrain

And yet another edit. These guys can be added to my skaven/beast man army. Was my lowest point army, now a full 2500 pts.
Huzzah!

Its 3:30am in the morning here, and I am up early, but seeing that these have arrived has me very glad!

I pulled out my box to look at the the back side of it closer up ... and not sure about skaven/beasts. The Iron Golems look like Chaos ... maybe Khorne? The Untamed Beasts remind me of Maurauders or Norsca.  However, there was a time when Chaos, Beasts, and Skaven were all in one army, so go for it!  And there are those other 12 figures in there called Chaotic Beasts (the Furies and Raptoryx) ... so that's is a total of 29 figures.  I'm looking forward to opening my box up, it has been sitting here for longer than I want to admit ... lol.  Plus I bought a Splinter Fang warband as well, for me they seemed too cool looking not have.  Could be Tzeentch or Slaanesh, maybe Khorne too.

Yeah, I think a typo + me reading it wrong + me not knowing how to write lead to the confusion.

Monday
I been trying to squeeze as much info about Stormcasts as possible, I use to know a little but now I have no idea why they have different names.

Tuesday:
Still doing research about storm cast and cutting cardboard for a paint rack.

Wednesday
Had to do some hobby shopping after running out of glue and box cutter blades. Still reading about Stormcast to write a small story. If its any good I will post it here.

Yes Artoban, that terrain is beautiful!
But the boxset was a little expensive when you didn't need the warbands inside. And on ebay that terrain went for bonkers prices.

That terrain is also available seperate I think

https://www.games-workshop.com/en-NL/Age-Of-Sigmar-Azyrite-Ruined-Chapel-2019

The box set was $170 here.  GW's current price is nuts at $280.  My local store had purchased their product at the beginning when Warcry was first released and still sells them for the $170 price.  Perhaps GW is giving "free shipping" ... lol.

Those two terrain sets are $99 ... so buying the 3 sets of figures on top for the remaining $71 seems of value.  Plus there is a rule book, cards, and tokens for game play.  My Splintered Fang set of 10 figures was $50.  So 29 figures for $71 isn't bad at just under $2.5 per figure.

More map work for me last night.  I'm having fun designing these city locations. And I'm leaning more and more towards this place being a Tilean city state on the coast south of Tobaro.  I haven't come up with heraldry yet the various Merchant Princes will each have there own, but I am leaning towards using blue and murrey for their military units of the city.  This way I can paint my historical 28mm Perry figures for Edward the IV units with a double purpose.

Oh ... and got a role playing night this evening with nephews.  Hope to squeeze in a long range first encounter for their characters with skaven ... lol.  Think I'm going to say something about them being dressed in human rags, all hunched over and looking like they're wearing giant rat costumes.  But we'll see how far they get with the opening salvo of the planned adventure.

Since they war bands fall under the general chaos tag, I can lump them into the skaven and beastmen amalgamation as they are chaos as well. I have no full chaos armies so the whole bunch can be thrown together. Not very effective competitive wise but still legal and it will be awhile before I build up any individual skaven, beastmen, slaves to darkness forces

That is an awesome boxset Artoban, the terrain always looked amazing but I was to lazy/broke to pick it up.

I've been slowly chipping away at my projects. I have the new Indomitus boxset coming on Saturday so I spent Wednesday evening and several hours today (Thursday) morning working on the fluff behind the units and mapping out what colour scheme I'm going to use.

I've preordered it and I'm STILL going back and forth on it. I don't hugely care about marines OR necrons, but I kind of want the special starter book and I have some fun converting ideas to turn the marines into Deathwatch. The Star Wars Legion stuff is also really pulling my gaze, but I have so much to work on!

Had an enjoyable role playing session with the nephews last night.  The party consists of a Human fighter, Human ranger, (dark) elf assassin, halfling thief.  Last night didn't go as far as I hoped, but sometimes that happens when players get stuck on what to do, and the GM has to get a bit creative to get them moving again.

The night's adventure involved making attempts to speak with a sort of doomsayer at the local inn, which didn't go well when one party member attempted to see if he'd join a "revolution" against all the bad things happening in the city.  Then there was noise outside in the street, and the party left the inn to find some external military force units marching into the city, including the (dark) elf mercenary force that the elf assassin character has gone awol from.  Halfling tried to talk with a couple unit commanders, no success.  Dark elf fled the area when seeing the former military unit.  As halfling gave up and decided to circle back, he runs into a scream and a guy jumping forom a second story, slightly injuring his ankle yet running past him.  And so the party begins to pursue.  Eventually they surprisingly stop when the guy gets across a street going in between two of the military units, and the players decide to regroup.

One thing I noticed is that the players minimal experience with role playing initially fell back on getting too caught up with figuring someone would hire them at the inn.  This is a common way folks do things to get an adventure going, but I sent things into a different direction, and eventually things started going.  The age range of the players was 12 to 16, and it was interesting that the two younger nephews were a bit more daring in their choices, but this led them away from the other two who were a bit more conservative in approach, and things started to get uncoordinated.  it seems they picked up on that in an effort to regroup, but now the guy in the yellow hooded cloak got away.

It was a good experience for me because I saw how they were developing their actions, while first time I GMed a roleplaying game since my college days.

Nice gaming, GP. Funny report with some thoughtful analysis. Roleplaying is tender business, things can go many ways, or nowhere. And teenagers can be challenging. Do they know what they want? Do they understand the freedom & the responsibility?

Nevertheless, back to some hobbying.

July 22 - Lots of unpacking, some trimming.

July 23 - Unassembled some ole multipart plastics, to scavenge for bits and re-assemble some correctly.

July 24 - Debased (!) a dozen of old minis, and made balsa shields for them. Helped the kids to paint some scatter terrain. The elder has markedly improved her painting. Gotta remember she needs a sharper brush next time to reach her level.  :-)

Nice gaming, GP. Funny report with some thoughtful analysis. Roleplaying is tender business, things can go many ways, or nowhere. And teenagers can be challenging. Do they know what they want? Do they understand the freedom & the responsibility?
And this is all a city adventure.  It was interesting to see their initial effort at the inn.  It was almost as if they were playing with their friends, and the adventures always must start the way they were looking for it to start.  But it didn't go as they expected.  Plus, they discovered that their uncle was going to be fairly realistic, compared to whatever they've experienced, and they changed their tune a bit when it came time to dealing with being in the streets.  They aren't aware I was observing this, age and wisdom being what it is.

It stopped at a good point, and in a way their choice to regroup isn't a bad one.  But I was surprised that they stopped chasing the guy in the yellow hood.  He will make a reappearance.  As GM, I need to reassess the upcoming encounters, and how this will draw them back into the adventure that is planned. It doesn't strike me as being a difficult thing to do based on where the yellow hooded guy was going.

I am sure they are experiencing something they haven't before previously with role playing.  After it was done, the one with GM experience was in a way hinting at giving me advice.  I didn't turn it away just yet, and it struck as a player wanting more ability to control what is happening from the suggestions he made.  But no big deal, I had plenty of GM and player experience in my high school and college days, and was fortunate to experience some very good GMs back in the college years as well, and even those guys liked what I did.  So things will be ok.  Besides, the players are barely into the action that is possible, so even the one that has some GM experience will find that this will be new and different, and something he can pull from in his own future GMing.

Post by: GamesPoet on July 24, 2020, 10:02:23 PM
Oh and on Zygmund's questions ...

1.  I've asked them about goals of characters, but they aren't obviously familiar with that for roleplaying.  My experience is often such is the case.  Although as players develop their characters, sometimes such will be found along the way, and then it takes off full speed ahead, if ya know what I mean.  It was interesting also that the youngest one picked a goal immediately.  He wants his halfling thief character to have a mask, and he is aware there is a theater district in the city, and is interested in going to it to buy a mask.  It is a small thing, but it is a start.  When the others see how I will handle this, they'll start coming up with things as well.

Plus, this city is a crime ridden, merchant prince, "italian"/Tilea, early renaissance era place that I'm most likely locating on the coast south of Tobaro.  It is a good out of the way spot to locate this city state, and makes it easy for me to incorporate rat men, mercenaries, pirates, smugglers, foreigners like those from Tobaro or Estalia, maybe even other Tilean city States, and maybe even greenskins from the mountains, etc.  I've got a idea for a Zeentch evil wizard too.  Which of course they've never encountered in a D&D game.  It also is a good spot for them to start finding ways to incorporate making money in the streets of the place.  But one step at a time ... lol.  I'm not sure how much can really happen this summer anyway.

2.  As for freedom and responsibility ... this isn't something they can't learn.  I reviewed the concept of the city being an amorphous place where they have to think on their feet and they are beginning to realize this isn't like walking down a one way dungeon crawl.  Being young adolescents, responsibility in a role playing game is probably new as well,  but that is something I will teach through action not chatting like I did on the idea of  freedom.

For me …

Friday … created a tracking sheet for role playing experience poitns for the nephews, and more mapping of the sewer system that they will eventually experience.  I now have 5 sizes of sewer … 5’ widths with 2 1/2’ walks on both sides, 5’ widths with 21/2’ walk on one side, 5 ‘ widths with no walks, 2 1/2’ widths with no walks, all the smaller piping from the locations to the sewer.

Saturday … spent a good half hour reading half the new 40K 9th edition core rules.

Dang weekends pretty much over already. Time flies.

Friday I set up for a warhammer fantasy game with a buddy. (Woo hoo)

We had the game off and on over Saturday and Sunday. The real nice thing about onlining playing like this is that he could leave the board set up, and we could go off and do others things whenever we needed. I tried to take screenshots throughout but A) I forgot for the most part and B) cant actually make much out in the few screenshots I did.

Still, my combined Dwarf/Empire army took on Ogre/Tomb Kings in an 8th edition battle and we squeaked out a victory!

I worked on my homemade warcry Belltower, goblin edition.
It is based on some hobbit terrain and lots of other bits. It is still not finished, but I'm happy the way it comes along :-)
I also used structure paint to get a rock like effect. Not completely satisfied but getting their!

Read 5 more pages of the Core Rules for 9th edition 40K.  7 more to go.

Also got out my 40K Ork army, and started inventorying it.  I hadn't gotten these dudes out in over 10 years, so it was a good bit of fun to reopen the boxes they were stored in and see what is what.

Most of the army is made from the Beyond Black Reach starter set back in 5th edition, I had bought two boxes at the time.  So for those table top ready ... I have a warboss, 9 nobs, a pain boy, unit of 20 boyz with 2 as big shooters and a nob, a unit of 10 shoota boyz and a nob, 2 Trukks, and 9 Deff Koptas (vaguely recall splitting one Black Reach set in half to obtain the extra koptas and Orks while friend got space marines).  Primed only I have another unit of 18 boyz with two as big shootas (can't recall why there are only 18, need 2 more I'm sure!), 10 Storm Boyz with Boss Zagstruk, 2 Looted wagons (converted Space Marine Rhinos, one with Ork turret, other with Space Marine turret), a lone battle wagon.  I have more Nobs from Black Reach set, and more Orks in their packaging of various kinds, and will inventory those next.

Week 13:
Saturday 25th & 26th:
I worked on my homemade warcry Belltower, goblin edition.
It is based on some hobbit terrain and lots of other bits. It is still not finished, but I'm happy the way it comes along :-)
I also used structure paint to get a rock like effect. Not completely satisfied but getting their!

And some long awaited pictures: ...
I like what you did with the dwarf, super! :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

And what is the story with that Guard unit?  Plus what did you use for the figures, and how did you paint the brown on their coats?

9th ed 40k!!

July 25th:
-After grabbing my 9th edition stuff early in the morning at the store I had some nice reading done in the books
Been reading the 40K core rules for 9th.  Ordered the Indomitus set on Friday, so will probably have it in the mail soon, but not sure when I'll ever start on those figures.  However, as mentioned above, getting out my Ork army has been fun!  I look forward to adding some more paint too!

With the last days of this 100 Days of Hobby in motion and it ending on Saturday August 8th, I went back and took a look at the list I had made early on this thread.  Below I have bolded what has been completed or seen an effort.

...

Go thru all my paints for seeing what I might order.
Complete WotRs list of nobles, their liveries, and their badges for 1st battle of St. Albans and Blore Heath.
Paint 8mm Perry Napoleonics.
Clean and paint 20 Border Reiver figures.
Finish gluing Tower back together for use with Border Reivers, and maybe fantasy too.
Start constructing more 28mm Perry WotRs and Euro Mercs, prime them, and get busy painting them for use with Lion Rampant.
Organize ACW figures into units to use with the rules called Longstreet and get cleaning, constructing, and painting them.
Clean, prime, and paint 28mm AW French & Indian War figures for Rebels and Patriots.
Partially, but more to Organize my WFB Empire figures and see what can get completed, and put paint on some of them!
Make some scenery pieces for all sorts of uses.
Get in some more games via Zoom ... had two with Artoban and Gankhom, and a few with nephews and two newer friends to the hobby.
Partially, but more to do for Set up a campaign idea or two for reason to make scenery and play games.
Create table maps for a 1st Battle of St. Albans campaign.
Create scenery for a Blore Heath scenario.

And who knows what else I might come up with along the way.

Started after the fact ... Created and began to run a role playing campaign for nephews, prepping for 40K 9th Edition by reading rules and getting out Orks.

I am sure there have been a few other items along the way, and so far quite satisfied with my progress so far.

Thanks, that is a Games Day Gotrek without it base. I got it in a trade and the base was missing, so I made one myself and he will be the leader of my Slayer Army (one day).

The guard unit is the start of my Astra Militarium army (Imperial Guard), this will be yellow squad (yellow triangle on the helmet). The other will be red and white squad. I will be playing Steel Legion and the figures are a mix of original metal GW models, some Spanish/Chinese plastic ones, some West Wind WW3 Germans and some 28mm WW2 Germans.
I'm going for the classic colours with these. With a Light Grey basecoat, Snakebeat Leather contrast paint over it. And a little highlight / drybrush of the old Snakebeath leather with a sand colour from Model Color.

I found my old Victory and Kutty sark kits. I realize they don't look much like the Erebus and Terror but i'm pulling the plug and making the 'trapped' diorama anyway.

I also went to 'Skavenblight' today [the name i dub the town i grew up in due to the fact its a rat hole, full of rat-like people] and scored a Marder 3 and paint set that came with 3 Stormcasts.

I also finished the Howling griffons with the screwed up helmets and did some more work on the custom panzer

Sunday I finished up my warhammer game, and did a little bit of painting in the evening while still in the zoom call.

Monday built another couple of fireforge peasants (Which have mostly been sitting around on as stock for converting.).

And today I was finally able to get into the shop and pick up the Indomitus box set. I've also had quite the fantasy itch, so while I was in there I picked up some game of thrones Nights Watch Sworn Brothers to use as Greatswords for my homebrew army.

(https://cmon-files.s3.amazonaws.com/images/board_content/image/169/Board_ASOIF_SwornBrothers.png)

(taken from their website.)

Scale seems to be mostly similar but we'll find out once I've made them.

Last night I tore up part of the sewers of my role playing city scape again, and began redrafting one foo the arterial branches and may move a second one.  Again I was struggling with what had already been created and it wasn't working like i hoped before drawing it the first and second times.

Also, after having lined up all my Orks on the gaming table, I put them all back into their boxes.  The plan is to further inventory the boxes of Ork figures, finish reading the core rules, and get an Ork Codex to see what small army might be built to give ago against nephew's space marines for an eventual low point game to work out the rules.  I might even just set up a play by myself scenario from whatever the rules evoke, in order to begin relearning the rules in the 9th edition iteration of them.

I have to agree those are really nice models. are the faces really similar? Almost looks like 1 guy in 4 poses .

This is one of my big gripes with the models. The 'champion', the dude with the long sword and dagger, is slightly different. Still bearded with long hair but less grizzled. The others all essentially have the same head. Same beard, long hair and lines. It really does seem like the same dude in 3 different poses. You really notice it to because the box comes with 13 models. 1 champ, and 4 of each of the other guys.

The models are also a good head taller then a normal Empire guy, closer in scale to space marines. My Empire army is a pretty eclectic collection so they don't look to out of place as greatswords holding the center, but its still a noticeable difference.

Thanks Gankom.  It was quite a stunning development.  Out the blue she told me that she'd had dinner with another "admirer".  I told her, "I guess you've ruled me out."  She seemed to claim she hadn't, but then when I expressed confusion, she asked me why I was confused.  And when I responded that was an unfair question, yet such is life.  She asked me why it was an unfair question.  At that point I told her that I'd be ok. She seemed to express concern for herself, and then I wrote she'd be ok. She said hope so, and I said I hope so too.  And that was it.  No more communication from her since then.  I more than just a bit upset and annoyed, much more. It effected my ability to work and hobby yesterday, a total and complete sense of disappointment and irritation.

Day 93 - different kind of hobby but qualifies all the same. This was made in 1980 I think. It was also my favourite board war game of all time. Played this many times and every senario including the 10th jager brigade.  Inspired me to go to Berlin and go thru checkpoint Charlie. Bought it in 1980 and thru it out in a fit of moving depression a couple of years ago. Found it on eBay, original and unpunched.
Canít believe it!
A Russian invasion of the city with the defenders being the French, US, British defense brigades and 36 companies of paramilitary German police units. It was a way of upping the defenders by using paramilitary units in the guise of police instead of bunderswehr units which was not allowed by treaty.

There is a great fictional diary short story of the initial invasion. I can post it if you like.

Well GP there are more fish in the sea!
Very true.  And that is one of the pieces of knowledge that is appropriate for me to keep in mind, in other words be prepared to walk away, when I communicate with her next.  A good reminder, thank you.

I got a text last night asking how I was doing.  That was a surprise.  I haven't responded yet, and won't do so via text.  Instead, plan to escalate it to a phone call, and see if she's willing to talk in person, which is exactly what she could have been wiser to do.  I've rolled it all around for a good bit now, had multiple folks in my support network of family and friends review the series of texts, and all who have, each has made comments about the process she used to communicate whatever she was trying to say that failed.  So I will turn the table and practice what I didn't get in return.  While being ready to walk if the situation develops inappropriately.

Sounds to me like she was hankering for a bit more progress in your relationship, and was trying to spark a bit of jealousy?

Or she was going for the "We can still be friends" situation

Either way it wasn't done very well.

We don't know how long you have been seeing her, how regularly, how deep the relationship has got, so commenting any further is hit and miss.


You should tread carefully, you have to take what you can get at your age, GP.     :biggriin:

Day 93 - different kind of hobby but qualifies all the same. This was made in 1980 I think. It was also my favourite board war game of all time. Played this many times and every senario including the 10th jager brigade.  Inspired me to go to Berlin and go thru checkpoint Charlie. Bought it in 1980 and thru it out in a fit of moving depression a couple of years ago. Found it on eBay, original and unpunched.
Canít believe it!
A Russian invasion of the city with the defenders being the French, US, British defense brigades and 36 companies of paramilitary German police units. It was a way of upping the defenders by using paramilitary units in the guise of police instead of bunderswehr units which was not allowed by treaty.

There is a great fictional diary short story of the initial invasion. I can post it if you like.

At that time, I had a subscription to their bi-monthly publication.  Can't recall if I had this issue or not.  Whatever remains of the various issues I had back then is questionable, probably at my parent's place, although now I am curious.  I have some of SPI's others that I've purchased via internet over the last dozen years or more.  I remember seeing Berlin 85 somewhere, but never playing it.  I am curious about it now after seeing this.

Could have been, and I have considered that.  But for me jealousy isn't the issue.  It is process.  I live in a world where I take women out to dancing events, and guys hit on the women I bring.  One time a guy even propositioned my lady on that day to go home with him instead of me, which she turned him down.  I don't get jealous, so if in this case she was seeking that, it is never about the other guy, it is about the relationship that I'm in with the lady.  And so if she was playing a game, which has come up multiple times with my support network, she needs to stop acting like a 15 year old and realize she's not dealing with a 15 year old either.

If that is the case and the method of telling me, it isn't going to garner what she is looking for.

:icon_lol:   :::cheers:::  For the moment her reaching out is not a bad move.  Obviously she wants to communicate.  No more texting on this now, and a phone call will be made to arrange a time to chat in person.  If that isn't to her liking, I move on, there are always other dancers waiting on the wings so to speak.  It is a high target environment for a guy, almost always more ladies than men, literally and figuratively.

Not really the hobby of this site but I have been since the end of May doing some remodeling work on my house, changing the a sort of big spare family room thing into a bar. How this then applies here is that I've gone with a wattle and daub look to the walls by adding dark stained timbers and such and to complete the theme some heraldic shields. Well two of those shields are Warhammer, being I did a Middenheim shield and an Ostland one as well. Painting heraldry at full scale is a bit different than in miniature but a bunch of things a similar. If I finally figure out what I want to use to host pictures these days I'll share some here.

Still brewing a good bit over that situation, yet folks can see that from what's already been tossed around on this thread above. :icon_lol:

Painted bolt gun onto the 6th of 6 horses' armor for my Knights of the Aver River.  Got out 6 knights, 5 are from the Knightly Orders kit, and one is an older metal figure.  The leader and three others have a metallic paint on them that doesn't match the bolt gun.  It is probably a thin coating of silver.  I vaguely recall using it to attempt to get a slightly shinier look to the armor for these guys, but it was so long ago, I hadn't figured out the concepts of building up and off of a black primer.  Up to that time I had mostly used gray and white for priming.  So not sure what I'm going to do with these yet, although glad I've been slowly moving in the direction of getting this unit completed during the 100 Days of Hobby.

I spent most of yesterday evening, looking for a long-lost 20mm flak gun and found it. It was however damaged
After battling with an Italieri kit, i managed to make a new one.
Today i worked on some 'magic' tracks. Who knew Panzer 2 and Czech 38-T had the same tracks

I had planned a rough remodel when I looked to have a good tax return this year, then Covid struck, I had extra time and stimulus money so it has grown to the whole downstairs so a bathroom and a spare bedroom as well in a similar style. I hope to have the bar top done this weekend as well as the front and side. Walls and a new tile floor were done in June.

In addition to the Warhammer World shields I have two from ASoIaF (House Blackwood and House Mormont) and two from the Witcher (Kingdom of Brugge and Mahakam). The bar will have heraldric shields across the front as well since it is how I built the bar in my house back in college. Still had the Guinness shield from 15 years ago so touched it up a bit and have worked up a Pabst, Miller, and Hacker Pschorr one as well.

I also put in the room my grandparents old dinning room table for use in playing cards or more traditional entertainment/drinking games. I have toyed with the idea of making up a top for it to actually give me the option for a wargaming table that can be stored in back room most of the time, just depends how ambitious I get on the project over having to do the work on all the other core rooms as well.

It is has flown by this time.  More so for me then when I did the 100 Days of Painting in 2015.  I think this might be because the guys here are doing it too.  I'm very grateful already.

Wed July 29 Night - Finished painting five little critters: 2 goats, 2 rats and a raven.

Thu July 30 - Looking at the Fantasy 6th ed starter box (I bought a new, used one), I couldn't resist the nostalgia and picked up a couple of Empire Handgunners and an Orc. And one 6th ed Dwarf that had found its way into the box. All were painted (badly), but I started to splash new coats on paint, seeing if my fingers still remember the routine after all these years. They didn't, it was tedious work trying to figure out how to best paint the minis, and focusing on the details as if I never knew them. Also did some work on the Ogre.

Fri July 31 - Continued with the minis from Thu - and finished all five!  :happy:

Need to take a photo of the ten models finished this week.

Sat Aug 1 - It's gonna be a boardgaming day after four months of physical separation from my friends. So gaming, but different hobby. Maybe some little painting in the evening, after my friends have left.

Time flies doesn't it?

I got my Indomitus Kit on Tuesday, along with the mentioned game of thrones guys, so I've had plenty to do.

Wednesday- Built the LT, Captain and Chaplain, and spent some time carving the shoulder pad off the captain and some troops.

Thursday- Built Necrons instead. The walker guy, the warlord and his immortal bodyguard.

Friday- had a massive discord warhammer/lord of the rings chat, and while I did that built a few more random guys. Some scarabs and the Judicator.

Found my old paint pot of "Chainmail", and it has definitely dried up.  So that stymied my ability to put some more pain on my 6 Aver River Knights.  I was going to do the same thing on the last two with the "Chainmail", and then use a black wash to darken again and provide that in the creases/cracks look before then painting another layer, but not sure again what I'm going to do next without being able to use my dried up "Chainmail" color.

So ... I also found an old paint pot of Badab Black wash.  I decided to use it on the armor for my ... wait for it ... queue Bethoven's 5th first four notes ... dah-dah-dah-duh ... mounted crossbowmen. The wash had clearly lost some of its moisture as well.  It was a thinker blacker substance, and so these dudes have a much darker look to their armor now. Not sure how I will proceed with that either. :icon_lol:

Oh, and opened up my Star Wars Legion: Clone Wars set.  I wrote about that in the Star Wars Legion thread. Summary ... that was a hoot!

So ... this morning I noticed that some how the daily count got to 95 days.  Not sure what the frick happened with that.  Here's what I mean ...

Starting day was May 1st ... going to May 31st is 31 days. Plus June's 30 days and July's 31 days makes 92 days have gone past (not the 94 of the tally).  That means we have 8 days to go.  That will bring us to the last day of the 100 Days of Hobby on next Saturday August 8th.

Thinking I may see if I can squeak in a Greet and Paint for next Saturday.  Folks could then show up for a Zoom meeting and we can bring our beer, ale, wine, or even a non-alcoholic drink if you'd prefer, and we can toast to our completed projects.  Sound good gentlemen :icon_question:

Been away on holiday. Yesterday, 1st August, began work on Lord Alessio's fort at the bridge of Pontremola. I am going to use the following partially completed old project and the base of an Airfix WW2 54mm scale (1:32) Japanese building which I have chopped up! I was going to use the chopped bits to make a two longer wall sections, although now I have changed my mind and will use them to make a triangular bastion of a more 'modern' shape. Lord Alessio is an experienced soldier with a good grasp of newer developments.

Snuck in a little painting this morning.  Got out my soft black wash (made by Secret Weapon) and used it on two of the mounted crosbowmen's feathers.

I also pulled out a unit of 13 spearmen that I got from someone many years back.  The person had painted them in Talabheim colors of red and white, with yellow highlights, including the lions on the shields.  I got them for a nice price or trade, can't recall which.

The plan was to use them for my Tilean town called Costanzio, where their colors too are red & white with the symbol of a yellow crown.  They are arch enemies of my other Tilean town called Bracciano, where are used the colors of blue and white with the symbol of a red rose.

Anyway, I have begun upgrading the painting on these red and white spearmen by starting the process of using the soft black wash on the uniforms, armor, and feathers.  Eventually I'll start putting more paint on them as well.

Oh!  And I also glued the flag to their banner bearer's hands. :icon_cool:

Week 13:
Saturday 25th & 26th:
I worked on my homemade warcry Belltower, goblin edition.
It is based on some hobbit terrain and lots of other bits. It is still not finished, but I'm happy the way it comes along :-)
I also used structure paint to get a rock like effect. Not completely satisfied but getting their!

Monday 27th & Wednesday 29th:
I started (and worked further) on the Nominios Occulum. Man their is a lot of little details on this bugger!

Thursday 30th:
I finished my gaming board for Warcry, I fixed the handels, varnished the top layer, put some anti-slip on the other side so I can storage my terrain on it when not in use (but that keeps coming lose). Since finishing it, I'm thinking of chancing one of the insides with a lid, so I can put in my rulebook, cards, dice,... Still not sure how I'm going to do that!

Week 14:
Friday 31th & Sunday 2th:
I worked more on my Nominios Occulum. I wasn't quite happy with my previous colour choices, so I had to go back and change them... Now it looks more like I imagined it, still not quit finished, but I hope it will be done by the end of the week as a nice finish for the 100th day :-)

So ... this morning I noticed that some how the daily count got to 95 days.  Not sure what the frick happened with that.  Here's what I mean ...

Starting day was May 1st ... going to May 31st is 31 days. Plus June's 30 days and July's 31 days makes 92 days have gone past (not the 94 of the tally).  That means we have 8 days to go.  That will bring us to the last day of the 100 Days of Hobby on next Saturday August 8th.

Thinking I may see if I can squeak in a Greet and Paint for next Saturday.  Folks could then show up for a Zoom meeting and we can bring our beer, ale, wine, or even a non-alcoholic drink if you'd prefer, and we can toast to our completed projects.  Sound good gentlemen :icon_question:
I don't know if I can make it, but I will try. It depends a lot on the time of the day with our 1 year old.
Also, it will be a heat wave this weekend, and maybe I'm not that enjoyable... I don't like those very hot temperatures.

Taking shape now. I am gonna have fun working out options for how to connect all the bits up. Lord Alessio ordered his army to build excellent earthworks to guard the bridge at Pontremola.

Today completed construction of the main part, a big artillery bastion, and primed ...

The crossbowmen are probably checking range to see how far out the foliage needs to be cut back, while the rest of the construction continues.

I really like that Bastian and fort coming together Padre! Looks good!

My update is expected but somewhat boring. Saturday & Sunday I spent building Indomitus stuff. Only a few guys each day, I'm slotting them in inbetween other chores.

Today I've been working on making them both into Crusader Forces to take advantage of the Narrative Rules. DeathWatch, Necrons and a third Chaos factions. My brother and I will swap around and take turns so everyone gets some battles under their belt.

This evening I worked again on mounted crossbowmen.  Boltgunned up the blackened armor, painted wood on an axe handle and a crossbow bolt being loaded, made a ribbon purple, and used some purple wash on the commander's leather armor, the latter followed by boltgun on the metal studs. And updated above. :::cheers:::

Monday 3th:
I'm still painting bronze on this bugger. There are so many parts to be done in this color and every time I think: 'Ok, that was the last part.' I see some new detail that has to be done.
Then I have to paint the white stone parts, some of the decorations,... and after al this is done, I can go on and wash the whole thing.

Last night I managed to do some more painting on the horses for my mounted crossbowmen.  Then I made a call to the last lady friend. It went negative, and so glad I got the painting in first. :icon_lol:

- - -

After last week's posting on this relational topic, it had been arranged for us to get together last Saturday evening.  As the hour of my departure for her place got close, I contacted with confirmation, and found out we'd have limited time to chat since her parents were coming over after dinner.  That was a red flag to me.  So I wrote back and explained that what ever was important with her family was valuable, and I didn't want to feel rushed with our conversation.  She questioned this, and I politely repeated myself to include we could catch up on the other side.  Texting these last few days has been congenial, although my call to her last night wasn't.  I initiated asking her about how I'd been connecting the dots of our last dinner, last Wed's comments to me, and what happened last Sat, and wanted to know if she was still interested in growing the relationship.  That was when she mentioned to do so only as friends.  I asked what had changed since the texting from week ago, and of course never got an answer to that during the rest of the phone call.  She proceeded to question what I was saying (not surprising), and I read the texting out loud so she could see my meaning and her lack of credibility from her own words.  She then proceeded to deny her actions and comments from the last 5 months, yet each step of the way I called her hand.  None of what she was saying was adding up.  Towards the very end she made a statement about her having not done anything wrong, and then I explained that I was not interested in having a relationship of any kind with her when she was not taking responsibility for her own feelings and actions, and I wished her best of good fortune to close the conversation down, and that succeeded.  A complete wow, and I am much better off for seeing this happen now than later.  So glad I didn't make the trip last weekend, for it is now certain that she had no intention of being positive in our conversation that had been planned.

And where is the email address and phone of that lady who asked me to take dance lessons with her recently?

(GP ... go slow, don't jump from one to the next too quickly.)

Yes, yes, and that gives me time to find that email address and phone number. :icon_wink:

Padre, that fort is a great project, nicely executed.  :eusa_clap: But what is it made of?

GP, end of relationship is painful, but you seem to have handled it with grace. Keep cool & honest to your emotions, take your time. Good things will follow.

My hobby stuff:

Wed Aug 5 - Half cleaned the hobby table & rearranged my paints. Worked some on three bases.

Thu Aug 6 - Rearranged the minis waiting for paint. Arranged photos of extra minis to sell. (6th ed starter box Orcs & Empire, if you happen to fancy any.)

Much of the already existing bits are a plastic fort (Renedra) but the main triangular artillery bastion is made from the chopped up base of a wooden 1:32nd scale (i.e. 54 mm) Airfix WW2 Japanese building I have had since the 70s !!!!! I just used cardboard, foamboard, milliput, tape and glue to shape it, after cutting it up (as well as my thumb) to the right shape. I got the idea when I saw the log effect was very similar in scale to the logs of then Renedra fort!

... and straight after your post Artoban talks about 'celibate' ballistas - what are they then?

If the missile hits you, you're NOT f**ked?     :closed-eyes:

Wait! WHAT?

Haha haha that was crazy syncronistic 😺

Padre ... I'm ok, and hope you are too.

Besides, Midaski has unfortunately been absent from this thread since June 25th, and good to see him back. :icon_wink:

(Ouch GP.)

>Well ... I went back and edited it for a much less than the original ooomphful retort.<

That other comment that has been deleted, must be some of my leftover attitude from my call last night with that less than lady like approach used towards me by this last tango dancer, who clearly had more issues than anything to do with "horizontal tango".  And besides, no one is going to call Midaski lady like.

(GP ... two in a row?)

Nah, the second one is complimentary.  I'm sure he'll get it. :icon_cool:

GP, end of relationship is painful, but you seem to have handled it with grace. Keep cool & honest to your emotions, take your time. Good things will follow.
Thanks Zygmund.  There has been some pain, and not sure how much grace I gave.  I was in a position that required it for moving forward in a positive direction, and I did give grace accordingly, even after a red flag went up regarding her action for last Saturday.  Unfortunately I was assaulted by denial and untruths, and a lack of self responsibility on her part.  This seemed to cause some of the grace to slip away.  However, I've learned that folks who opt to be disrespectful towards me, it is ok to tell the truth with directness, stand for self and not budge on that, and choose to close off relationships that begin to border on abuse.  And as for keeping cool, I did on the phone to the best of my ability, yet specifically didn't accept the blame suddenly cast at me towards the end of the call, and that was a bit hard in nature.  I do need to take my time, and maybe shouldn't have been so hard on Midaski above.  Good things are happening, a colleague told me it sounded like I dodged a bullet on this one.  It is so idiotic that it turned so quickly with such negativity, and so there is a sense of freedom from that which is healthy,  and that is good already.  I did send a quick note to one lady who'd been thoughtful with me in her last note, yet even there I need to be careful currently.

Had another good RPG session with four nephews.  It was an interesting loop through locations in the city ... going back to where the yellow hooded dude dropped from a building into the street to find guards and a Captain investigating, followed by a trip back to the North Gate to see if they could talk to the captain there, then a trip back to the sight of the crime and a conversation with a lady, or merchant husband with a lump on his head, and to discover he's lost his trade notebooks with dates of shipments and types of cargo, and then back out to go see the guard captain, only to run into a clanging sewer grate in an alleyway, and a drop into the sewers before closing out for the evenings session.

Too tired to paint this evening, even though that was the plan.  Time for bed!

Hey GP, you don't have to hold back.  :engel:

I dished it out tongue in cheek playing on your dance hobby, and was quite prepared for a 'robust' response.

You always seem to act so dignified when talking about your 'lady friends', and I never know just how deep or involved these relationships are.  :biggriin:

No, this isn't the Back Table.  It was best for me to have altered my comments.  I respect folks around here as possible, although that back Table can certainly be a bit touch and go to say the least, and I don't want to accidentally duplicate such stuff elsewhere on W-E

And when the ex lady reads my reply to her text from yesterday suspect she won't see me as being dignified.  I got some communication about me having survived the phone call, and a telling me she didn't appreciate my comments on "friendship", while sharing something about having multiple admirers or some such crud that didn't make any sense to me.  So I sent back saying she was incorrect on my comments on friendship, told her I appreciate friends who's words and deeds match, and then expressed that besides standing for self, telling the truth, and being kind, I was thinking my kindness was being treated as weakness.  Then I called her hand on all her "admirers", and said why would anyone admire that bullcrud, he'd have to be stupid, a fool, or both, asking her is that the guy she is looking for, well it isn't me. And lastly I mentioned that she could continue dealing with the dumb ones if she'd like but not this smart guy who was too much of a challenge for her, and told she hit a pop fly out in the major leagues while now being sent to the minor league to return to playing with the boys.  Bets of good fortune to her.  She probably isn't going to still wake up fully to that comment, yet maybe it'll get her to move along.

Post by: GamesPoet on August 07, 2020, 01:10:20 PM
And for additional measure ... I just sent comments about the idea, as previously mentioned to her, that I was looking for a best friend, someone who's words and deeds matched, felt their feelings appropriately, told the truth, and upheld their commitments, which I hadn't found there, and someone who has moved beyond playing games and field playing to find a special relationship.  She probably won't be happy with those comments either, yet it is further directness that perhaps one day she'll wake up to and discover that continuing her current path will only continue to get her the same thing.  She can't say she hasn't been informed, although no guarantee the horse will drink the water either.

By the way ... I was previously planning on setting up a Zoom session on Day 100 to celebrate our efforts here on this thread and project.  It seems like SKS can not attend, and it could be difficult for Novogrod.  Therefore, I'm delaying setting this up currently.

Also, as I look out on the calendar ... the days I am looking at are Sat Aug 15th, and Sat Aug 22nd.  The time would be 8am PST, 11am EST, 4pm GMT, 5pm CET.

So ... do either of those days or both look good for the rest of you gentlemen :icon_question:

Day 100 peeps!
Had a great zoom call with GP. Did our Warcry joint box opening, glued a bit more of the evocators together and a pretty good hobby chat. Great way to finish off an almost perfect record. I think I lost about a week altogether. Canít quite remember what I accomplished but Iím sure it was diabolical 😺  :wink:

Last night I gave a go to finishing the new 9th edition 40K core rules.  As I lay out out the couch couldn't keep my eyes open and thus my brain open to getting to the end of them.  It was all I could do to digest the morale phase page (will probably need to reread it ... lol), and only have the Mission pages remaining.

And this morning ... as Artoban mentioned we finally got in our join opening of our Warcry starter boxes, and a great hobby conversation.  Super way to finish off the 100 Days of Hobby.  I even opened up my Splintered Fang box for Warcry, and get this ... talk turned to 40K and I opened up the Indomitus starter box.  The new 40K rule looks gorgeous ... plenty of art and pictures of figures, and a wonderful looking edition for fans and newcomers to be inspired with the hobby.  I even kept the book from going back into the box, it seems way to worth keeping it easily accessible for future reading and review, and without having to dig down through the multiple sprues to get to it's inbedded spot at the bottom of the box.  Artoban and I talked fantasy, sci-fi, historicals, board games ... a great time, thank you Artoban! :icon_cool: :icon_cool: :::cheers::: :::cheers:::

By the way ... on the ex-relationship front ... she was obviously not impressed by my last communication.  She wrote back one sentence ... "I will block you so you will stop writing this < explicative >".   :icon_lol:  I had no plan to write further, the horse was led to the water, don't know if she drank or not, but she didn't like the looks of it at a minimum, perhaps not the taste either.

I had not heard of a person being able to block receiving someone's texts, that is a new one on me.  Seems a bit of her problem and not mine.  I seem to have succeeded in not receiving additional < explicative > from her, and without having to play a game of blocking, a victory. :icon_mrgreen:

You're very welcome!  I went back to my list of to dos for this project and recapped the progress, might do that when I have a free moment again next, although not much more completed progress since then.  More just to post it up in my face to see where things stand again.

This 100 Days of Hobby wasn't simple, and thank goodness all of you guys were here along for  the ride.  It was easier than the 100 Days of Painting that I did back in 2015.

I'm contemplating doing another 100 Days of Painting at some point ... perhaps after I get all my 28mm Perry WotRs figures constructed, so I can focus on getting them painted.  But we'll see.

The next effort might just be another 100 Days of Hobby.  This could start 100 days back from this Christmas. With Christmas of course being off, or maybe even 100 days back of Xmas eve, since perhaps folks might not have time on that day either for hobby.  I probably have time on either day, although would want to give everyone a fair shot at completing 100 days in a row without worrying about the last one or two on the holiday.

Fri Aug 7 - Cleaned mould lines from four Empire handgunners, and put them into paint removal.

Sat Aug 8 - No time for hobby. Day spent reading & with kids.

Thank you GP for organising this and doing the frequent updates! It's been a joy to do something together, and the challenge was just what I needed for long-term motivation. Thematic painting challenges or monthly promises rarely work for me, but a suitably abstract joint effort to do something, just anything, was great! The story of ten or so painters.  :-)

In the end, I think I managed a little over four days a week. Could have done five, but the northern summer is too short to spend indoors, and it didn't rain a lot this year.  :lol:

Thank you, gentlemen. Maybe we can do something like this in the future too.

Been feeling a little bit out of it today.  There is a subtle undertone of wanting to do some hobby things, yet lots of other items calling my name as well. So I am taking the day off from hobby, and see what I can do with other life things.  Then I'm going to re-evaluate where various things stand with the hobby, and decide how to proceed from there.

Well done GP and Artoban on finishing off the event with a join unboxing. That was a pretty brilliant idea.

I timed things out to end things by having a game with my brother. In fact, I managed to have two! We started yesterday on Day 100 and finished today. We started off with a warhammer 40k game, his Salamanders (Soon to be mine because he's getting out of the hobby) vs my Imperial Guard secessionists. After we fought to a bloody draw, I convinced him to have a quick 1000 pt 8th edition Fantasy game with me. My Dwarves vs a borrowed Orc army. The Dawi emerged victorious an hour ago! A great way to finish off 100 days of hobbying.

Been having a slow bummer of a day, barely getting much done.  Have been tempted to go do some hobby stuff just to brighten my mood.

It is amazing how healthy this 100 Days of Hobby has been for me.  There has been something about taking myself away from all the stress of personal and professioonal responsibilities, a little each day, and then on top of the covid 19 crud too.

There also seems to be something about getting something constructive done at the same time as taking my mind off all the crud.

Let me think about what I accomplished over the last 100 days

I painted the last half of the plague beast army
Added and painted 3 regiments to the chaos undivided army
Based the khorne knights army
Painted about a dozen Howling Griffons [howling griffon output was slow due to the difficult colour scheme]
Finished the 'Abandoned' diorama
Nearly finished a Hotchkiss tank [put on hold due to missing track links]
AND halfway through the 'Ultimate' Panzer 2 diorama
I also did a lot of other ancillary things

Week 14:
Friday 31th & Sunday 2th:
I worked more on my Nominios Occulum. I wasn't quite happy with my previous colour choices, so I had to go back and change them... Now it looks more like I imagined it, still not quit finished, but I hope it will be done by the end of the week as a nice finish for the 100th day :-)

Monday 3th:
I'm still painting bronze on this bugger. There are so many parts to be done in this color and every time I think: 'Ok, that was the last part.' I see some new detail that has to be done.
Then I have to paint the white stone parts, some of the decorations,... and after al this is done, I can go on and wash the whole thing.

Wednesday, Tuesday, Friday & Saturday:
With the hot weather outside, I had to stay inside, so I could work a little bit more on the miniatures.
And I finished the Nominios Occulum saturday afternoon. I'm glad it is done!
I also started some terrain pieces and repaired one that our little son destroyed....

Took yesterday off from hobbying, but it didn't feel like a reward.  Probably needed the break, although have found the hobbying every day to be cathartic as well.  It was a bummer to lose Realjuan and Midaski in the final weeks, and even Padre appeared to fade a bit, and I hope all of them are doing ok.  This pandemic stuff has taken its toll on everyone, and it isn't out of the way yet.

In interacting with the lady on the dance lessons, she seems to have found another guy she's interested in currently, so that exchange of emails was quick ... lol.  There was another one further back who had contacted me, and when I looked, she hadn't returned my last communication, so I sent another just in case her world has turned bad, but I don't expect much there ... lol.

I need to turn to various items today, Monday is upon us!  Will probably pull up my to do list for this 100 Days of Hobby again, and see if much changed since the last update a week or two back, probably not.  Need to re-evaluate the list and the projects, see what might be accomplished next, once I am feeling up to it or else else force myself back into hobby items, and see what more stress relief that might achieve. :icon_cool:

Pulled out the list below and placing it here so I don't need to dig on this thread so much for this ...

With the last days of this 100 Days of Hobby in motion and it ending on Saturday August 8th, I went back and took a look at the list I had made early on this thread.  Below I have bolded what has been completed or seen an effort.

...

Go thru all my paints for seeing what I might order.
Complete WotRs list of nobles, their liveries, and their badges for 1st battle of St. Albans and Blore Heath.
Paint 8mm Perry Napoleonics.
Clean and paint 20 Border Reiver figures.
Finish gluing Tower back together for use with Border Reivers, and maybe fantasy too.
Start constructing more 28mm Perry WotRs and Euro Mercs, prime them, and get busy painting them for use with Lion Rampant.
Organize ACW figures into units to use with the rules called Longstreet and get cleaning, constructing, and painting them.
Clean, prime, and paint 28mm AW French & Indian War figures for Rebels and Patriots.
Partially, but more to Organize my WFB Empire figures and see what can get completed, and put paint on some of them!
Make some scenery pieces for all sorts of uses.
Get in some more games via Zoom ... had two with Artoban and Gankhom, and a few with nephews and two newer friends to the hobby.
Partially, but more to do for Set up a campaign idea or two for reason to make scenery and play games.
Create table maps for a 1st Battle of St. Albans campaign.
Create scenery for a Blore Heath scenario.

And who knows what else I might come up with along the way.
Started after the fact ... Created and began to run a role playing campaign for nephews, prepping for 40K 9th Edition by reading rules and getting out Orks.

I am sure there have been a few other items along the way, and so far quite satisfied with my progress so far.
Contemplating the creation of a new list that shows only the items on this list that still need to be completed, and perhaps add some new ones.

Also considering doing some sort of Hobby Project "To Do" list thread.  It wouldn't be a place to list every hobby project that I have on my shelves needing completion.  That could be encyclopedic in length!  And who in their right mind would want to create something like that? Or read it or try to work off of it's gargantuan size?  That might be self defeating quickly. Definitely not a good idea. :icon_lol:

Anyway ... I noticed that there wasn't much additional completed that isn't already covered on the list from about the last 2 weeks back of end of the 100 Days of Hobby 2020 project.   I recall working on some of the ones that weren't completed, and also getting through most of the new 9th edition 40K rules too.  Overall, not a bad effort, and I am glad so much was accomplished along the way. :icon_cool:

Ah! And almost forgot ... unboxed the Star Wars: Clone Wars starter set, the Warcry starter set, and the 9th edition 40K Indomitus starter set.  It was like Christmas!  In August! :icon_mrgreen:

Yes great work GP! Loved to get in 3 hobby momnts in the week! Participating in 12 months hobby on a English Discord server also and this helped to get going for that as well, setting monthly (adjustable) goals and using these 3 days a week to keep at it.

Managed to read through Psychic Awakening books Engine War and War of the Spider during my week holiday!

Congratulations to everyone who participated, and especially to those who saw it through until the end.

Which didn't include me.  :engel:

I actually made it to day 59, but I don't think I recorded it as it was the day after my PC died again. That was a Saturday, and I did a few bits on the  Sunday, but then I had some bad personal news which hit a bit hard.

I retired some 3 years ago and the room that was my office is about 8' x 8' and has built in desking and shelves around 3 sides - nowadays it houses the home finances, and my model preparation area. Those of you who witnessed the background on the last Zoom call will now get a much better view as I have since got a fancy new camera.
Anyway the point was since I retired I had been meaning to have a clear-out and a sort-out of loads of paperwork and sundry other items which were of no further need or use.

So following the Sunday downer, I decided to throw myself into the sort-out.
I went through filing, and shredded sacks of confidential stuff, and binned piles of other useless paper. Cabinets, cupboards and drawers were investigated and pruned and the result is this:

Not a lot you might think  :biggriin:

However previously that had some 5 piles of papers and boxes - and now it is 'working room' for modelling.
I have resorted all my rulebooks and such on the shelf units and made room for the ones that didn't have room before, and I have them generally in pigeon holes by genre.

The end result is that when I had finished some 2-3 weeks later, I now feel more comfortable working on my figures.
I know where things are.
I can find bits
I can find books.

I am at peace.  :engel:


Of course that depends on how many new figures turn up ... ... ... ... ...  :closed-eyes:


and finally a special thanks to GP for organising this thread, maintaining it, and maintaining the enthusiasm.
I guess I probably did about 70 - 75 days of hobby stuff overall, which really surprised me. I had never committed to these things in the past as I knew my fickle wavering enthusiasm, but I think I surprised myself.

Achievements of any kind are to be celebrated, and some times the accomplishments arise in unexpected ways.  I am glad for Midaski's.

Gentlemen ... I had mentioned that once SKS got back form vacation that I'd set up a Zoom session for what I'm calling a Celebrate and Paint session.  Unfortunately there is too much going on this Saturday, although wanted to let you know this idea hasn't gone off my radar screen!

Who is invited?

Anyone who wants to paint (or not), and celebrate with a drink, maybe a toast, or a few, to an event well done by folks who gave an effort.

I'm thinking of pushing the start time back a bit from previous zoom sessions, although still try to make it easy for folks if possible.  Folks can having a glass of wine, mug of beer, or whatever their hearts desire, alcohol isn't required.
