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

    I might have a little less time to paint this month due to job applications and interviews. However here are my goals:

    • Finish painting and basing Padme Amidala for SW Legion.
    • Paint and base my Republic AT-RT for SW Legion.
    • Prime a test model for my new GSW Liquid Pigments.
    • Prime 8 Barricades for SW Legion.
    • Try out rust effects and chipping medium on the Barricades.
    • Prime some Saurus Temple Guard.
    Good luck to the rest of you on your goals! :)

    Keeping it simple this month as the skinks gave me more problems than needed.

    • Convert my cold ones to look more like a seraphon model and start working on their riders if they'll arrive on time.
    • Work on my bastiladon wich is missing some parts
    • Read up on some stories posted here as I never really gotten a chance to do that for a while.
    • Actually maby post something on my blog finally.

    This is a tough one. I've hosting a game day on August 8th and need to do a lot to get ready for that (the space is so cool! It's the HQ of a shared workspace for writers in Central Kentucky--I sit on the board of the nonprofit that runs the joint--anyway, the building was built in 1812! Which I realized probably doesn't impress the Europeans among us but for here that is OLD).

    What was a I saying?

    Oh yeah! Game day!

    I have to purchase a couple of 44" x 60" battlements (running two tables) but I'm borrowing in scenery so I'm not going to mess with that this month.
    Buy the new Core book and GHB '21 and try to get a handle on the rules.
    Build lists at 1K, 1.5K, and 2K.
    And paint according to what the lists look like! Once I decide what I"m going to try to get painted in particular I'll post back in here.

    Good luck to us all!

    Last month was slow but we got there. This month:
    • Finish painting atleast 1 model from MO box in infinity. Doing 10 characters at once is tough
    • Prime Kroak and start to paint either him or the ultimate lazy boy
    • Finalise SBGL vampire lord scheme and then paint
    • Do some wizard stuff to figure out how to get my hands on some more MO or the new infinity box. That para-commando is just straight fire.

    I'll be honest i spent most of this month trying not to melt in our heat (26 aint much unless your house wants to suffocate you with)
    • Finish painting atleast 1 model from MO box in infinity. Doing 10 characters at once is tough. I'm now onto Highlighting, i need better super glue to keep the models attached to the base but still 0/10
    Still to do:
    • Prime Kroak and start to paint either him or the ultimate lazy boy
    • Finalise SBGL vampire lord scheme and then paint

    I didn’t finish this - only got the base coats and shade done - so it’s a goal for August. But I did manage to build my new Lord Kroak in subassemblies.

    My goals were :
    • Finish painting and basing Padme Amidala for SW Legion. - DONE
    • Paint and base my Republic AT-RT for SW Legion. - DONE
    • Prime a test model for my new GSW Liquid Pigments. - DONE, painted fully too.
    • Prime 8 Barricades for SW Legion. - DONE
    • Try out rust effects and chipping medium on the Barricades. - NOT DONE
    • Prime some Saurus Temple Guard. - NOT DONE
    On the whole a pretty successful month. Rather than priming temple guard, I did prime my Woogity Saurus Cowboy and have started painting him up too.

    Ok
    Ok so I got the pictures taken of my skinks and cold ones I just need to pick the best and send them to my Phone so I can post them here.
    • The cold ones only need straps, saddles and some gap filling
    • Bastiladon is done i just need to glue on the shell and figure out how to mount the skinks and the ark of sotek. (I know solar engine is better but this one will be mainly a display pice since I kinda ended up with 3 Bastiladons plus i have a cool idea for the crystals)
    • I read a few stories, just need to like bomb sometime
    I'm probably going to take a break from warhammer for some time, because I kinda feel creatively drained and the current situation with games workshop dosen't really help my motivation. Another thing is that I want to work on some other projects as I have a few ideas that I really hope will work out.
    With that said, may the old ones be with you and i'll see you after my hiatus.
    Take care ;)

    Goal for July and status:

    -Prime Kroak, Trog, 20 chainrasps, 20 bladegeists, Lady Olynder, Reikenor, and a dreadblade harrow (done)
    -paint 40 chainrasps that are already started (partial, 20 done)
    -finish building, prime, and paint 3 more salamanders for my DT list (built and primed, minor painting progress)
    -paint 20 bladegeists (airbrushing done, no other progress)

    While I didn't hit my stated goal I did complete all the airbrushing on my entire nighthaunt army which I'm happy with. I also got in 4 games of AoS 3 and started a battle report log on this forum
