    Hello boys and girls and welcome to Let's Get Motivated - September 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 aim to get a few basecoats done on my empire greatswords, paint my battle standard bearer, and paint two paper banners - one for said BST and one for the greatswords.

    If I get some spare time I will remove paint from a warrior priest and start to paint him, and also try to sort out which colors I intend to use on my griffon.

    In addition to my normal painting i'm introducing Ratty Roulette!
    Every month I pick six models from varying game systems, give them a number between 1-6 and roll a dice. Whoever gets the roll gets added to the paint pile for the month.

    For this month:
    1 - Gimli
    2 - Kharn the Betrayer
    3 - Queek Headtaker (painted as Squeek Captain of the Council Guard)
    4 - Boromir
    5 - A Sister of Battle (painted as a random Order)
    6 - A Necromancer

    *Rolls dice*

    And it's Kharn! What a nice guy!

    Ratty Gnawtail - Madium

    Assemble:
    Model of the Month: -
    3 Spirit Hosts -

    Conversion/Green Stuff:
    3 Spirit Hosts -

    Paint:
    Taddeus the Purifier -
    Guardian of Souls -
    9 Classic Dwarf Thunderers -
    6 Chainrasps -
    Model of the Month –
    3 Spirit Hosts -
    Kharn the Betrayer -

    My goal for September is to paint my three Terradon Riders. Simple! Hopefully I can also get started on my next project as well, but haven't figured out what that is yet. I'll update this thread if I finish my Terradons early.

    Last weekend I set up an additional Kraken black painting rack for my hobby station.

    The rest of the completion of the stegadon now also follows this month. :)

    Ratty Gnawtail - Madium

    Assemble:
    Model of the Month (Ork Nob) : - Completed!
    3 Spirit Hosts - Completed!
    5 Grimghast Reapers - Completed!

    Conversion/Green Stuff:

    3 Spirit Hosts - Completed!

    Paint:
    Taddeus the Purifier -
    Guardian of Souls - Completed!
    9 Classic Dwarf Thunderers -
    6 Chainrasps -
    Model of the Month (Ork Nob - Blood Axe with camo schemes) – Completed!
    3 Spirit Hosts - Completed!
    Kharn the Betrayer -

    Base:
    3 Spirit Hosts - Completed!

    I will try and get some pictures at the end of the month.

    Spirit Hosts I converted from some old Bretonnian Men-at-Arms with a few greenstuff repairs, a few limb swaps (including an old old skeleton champion head back when regiment boxes had metal command parts as extras.) I also drove myself partly insane(r) by making cobblestones for the bases out of plasticard.

    Model of the month was fun to do as I got to experiment with different camo schemes.

    Hopefully I should get the Chainrasps and Kharn done by the end of the month...talons crossed.

    My goals were:
    • Prime all my built Star Wars models. DONE
    • Finish painting my Saurus Cowboy. DONE
    • Start painting some Temple Guard. Started, basecoat down on 40 TG.
    • Maybe build 2 units if Commando Droids. NOT DONE
    A semi successful month. I wanted to make more progress on the TG but a small back injury and a death in the family prevented me from doing so. Not going to beat myself up too much.

    Sad to hear this. My condolences.
    Family still is more important than painting miniatures.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Done! I’m particularly happy with how the fire on the bolas turned out, so maybe I’ll post pictures later.

    I didn’t update this thread, but I also built a few Kruleboyz models (my eventual next painting project) and I’m close to finished building 5 Saurus Guard - I realized I should have a few to protect my beloved Kroak.
