    Hello boys and girls and welcome to Let's Get Motivated - April 2021

    This thread is too get us motivated each month into finishing projects that we have on the go, the rules are fairly simple.

    At the start of the month post what you intend to try and finish this month, it can be models/terrain/conversions of any game type. No pressure if you don't finish anything this is for motivation nothing else.

    Around the middle of the month post your progress, no images please, if you have want to share your progress with images, upload them into your blog and supply a link.

    Around the end of the month post your progress, again no images, if you have finished a piece upload the images into your blog and supply a link.

    The reason I don't want images in this thread is too get everyone that takes part views in their personal blog where the community can critique, etc.

    You don't have a paint blog? well get one started in this forum section.

    If you need advice etc. post here and the community will try and answer.

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone share their progress

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Trying to finish up my Seraphon army and be ready for some games come May! To do this, I need to:

    Paint up 30x Saurus warriors
    Paint up 1x Scar-Vet on carno
    Paint up 1x Lord Kroak
    Paint up 1x Skink Starpriest
    Kitbash and paint up 1x Saurus Astrolith bearer

    It's a lot of models, but if I do it I will have a 2000 point list I can try out and play. We'll see how it goes.

    April goals:

    - Finish painting 10 cold one riders
    - Paint 10 skinks
    - Bonus: magnetize the bases of all unmagnetized models (61 total)
    - Bonus: prime some minis!

    I'm moving next month, so having all my models magnetized for transportation will be useful. If I don't get around to it, that's a goal for early May.

    Ended up building all of the models (sans the Choas Marines and the Man of Iron) from Blackstone Fortress.
    The Kroot is a very nice model.

    Halfway there! 16 skinks done and Kroak has been primed. Though I might not make it to the Trog but we shall see.

    Stinks that I'm only just now getting to Kroak right after the announcement. Doesn't motivate me all that much to paint him. But he was a Christmas present from my partner and so I still want to do his current form justice. Had to get through the rest of my backlog first.

    After the walk of shame the committee has therefore decided to extend the deadline to the end of April. :D

    Happy to say I finished my painting goals early this month. I also managed to magnetize the bases of all my built models, and I even primed a few models. Now to figure out what I can get a head-start on for May...
