About the Project

It's August 2020 and the end is in sight. Out of the 2200ish models I own I only currently have 63 left to paint, so why not share the final push with everyone and watch me accidentally buy and print faster than I paint instead of doing this

I got the Frogdog finished this week.  I also got everything else primed, and an airbrush base coat.  I have a painting averse friend who plays Godtear with me so I offered to paint his warbands that match the ones I’m painting.  It shouldn’t take much longer to paint 2 identical warbands at the same time.  I also painted 5 double sided tokens, as they were hard to read when they were bare plastic. This means I put at least a basecoat on 60 subassemblies and 5 tokens this weekend.

Frogdog has arrived ( +1 normal, +8 modulars), and eBay was good to me/mean to me, depending on your point of view and let me get 3 more Godtear warbands (18 more normals) so my totals have gone up.  However, I have painted the Killennium Butcher and his Wishseekers (-5 normals), and I’ve built and primed a bunch of what remains.

I’ve been looking at my master spreadsheet to see what’s left and it appears my totals here have gotten a bit wrong.  I seem to have painted 4 more model than I’ve tracked.  The master sheet has to be more accurate than my running total, although the running total includes models I’ve painted for others and models I’ve sold, when the master sheet does not.

So what do I have left from the Normal category?  Here’s the table I have showing everything I have left to paint, with guesses for model counts for stuff yet to arrive.

If I paint the following, then I have completely finished every game piece I own, and can move on to stuff to be painted purely for the fun of it.  At least until Aeon Trespass Wave 2 arrives August/September time.  This includes Frogdog, which I’m expecting a shipping notification for any day now (I think it’s 8 Modular models and 1 Normal model).

I’ve already started work on the 5 Normal models from Killenium Butcher (pic 1).

Can I get them done sufficiently before ATO arrives that I can complete a painters piece or two?  11 models isn’t much, and 5 of them are a unit which is always faster to paint than 5 solos.

I’ve just had a week of and got a lot of painting done.  I was supposed to be playing KDM, but once I started work on the Black Knight it all kinda just flowed and held my attention.

That’s 9 more models done, and at some point I’ve moved 3 models over from Normal to Luxury because they have no in game use, and are just there to paint.

With all that done, it’s back to finishing off the non-modular game content from The Gambler’s Chest, which is just Atnas, Crimson Crocodile, The Gambler, and The King.  Crimson Croc is done, and I’m currently working on Atnas, while playing a fresh KDM campaign against the Dragon King

The Crimson CrocodileThe Crimson Crocodile

With Aeon Trespass completed (Until wave 2 arrives) it was time to get Kingdom Death back to the table.  With the big box out, the first thing I did was sleeve up and put away all the cards from all the expansions I’d gathered.  Turns out, they don’t all fit in the core box so I decided to make my own deck boxes to store the excess.  I went online and found a box template generator and printed some to paper, then glued this to an old cereal box as a test piece.  It worked well, but I learned two things:

1: Measure the card dividers, not the cards
2: Make the lid 2mm wider and longer than the box.  This allows you to add extra card to the corners for reinforcement and still have the lid fit

The Gamblers Chest came in a very pretty sleeve you are meant to throw away.  It doesn’t fit any more once you’ve built the models and junked the cheap box they come in.  I’d put it on one side as I’ve been hoarding good card for craft projects.  It’s time had finally come.

Instructions:
1: Glue the templates to the inside of the card with a glue stick.  Cut them out first, but leave a healthy border so the glue goes beyond the edges you want to keep.
2: Score along the inside of the folds to preserve the pretty finish while encouraging folding
3: Fold everything before applying glue, then superglue the tabs together and use paperclips to hold everything in place.  Leave it longer than needed to dry.
4: Add some PVA glue over the tabs.  Trust gravity to have it run between the tabs and the walls.  it will pool and it will run, so be prepared to contain the mess, and rotate the box every so often so it gets in all the crevice’s.
5: Using the scraps, cut out some strips and fold them along the middle.  Use superglue to attach these over the outside of each corner of the box to help reinforce it.  Use paperclips to hold these in place.
6: Make 1000% percent everything is dry and fume free before any game content goes anywhere near it.

That was the end of the big bulk project.  I decided to paint the final model in the Aeon Trespass core box.  I’d finished the game so I thought I’d finish the last model, even if it’s not a game piece.  He was mostly flesh and I’d found a spare KDM base insert so I thought I’d paint the Grovelling Survivor from the Spidicules expansion.  Pretty sure he only exists because there was space on a sprue, so may as well use it.

While painting them I found another Godtear warband going cheap on ebay.  It was broken.  His arm had come off so it was clearly trash no one would buy so I bid him down as I would have to go to all the trouble of repairing the model.  If only I knew anything about building toy soldiers?  However will I cope?

It’s been a while since I updated this post.  I had the bright idea to bulk paint the remaining 28 KDM survivors together, and paint their bases and lanterns all at once, and then varnish together.  In theory it saves time.  In practise it means I don’t finish anything for months and my motivation suffers.  I was also distracted by playing a lot of Aeon Trespass, which I’ve now caught up to date with the releases, at last.  I also then ran in to the issue that I had a whole lot of photos to sort with and tidy up, and no time or motivation to do that, but it’s done now, so expect a whole lot of pics incoming.  I’ve also bought some stuff and had some preorders arrive:

Gained: 19 models
Painted: 34 models

Anyway, on to the pics.  Once again, I have tried to de-pornify models where I could.  I like looking at naked ladies as much as they next guy, but clothing and armour feel preferential when fighting monsters.

With 2023’s targets finally met, and a little time left of my Christmas holiday I set about building all the remaining non-modular playable survivor models I have, and got them primed.  In the process I noticed that the herb gatherer is a really annoying build.  Take a look at the pics below.  you see how you need to paint the base before gluing the “water” on?  Now you see those 3 bits of plant poking through?  Those are separate pieces that can only be glued to the base, through the water, once the water is glued on.  This means she needs to be painted with 3 sub-assemblies that are basically tiny blades of grass.  Whoever thought that was a good idea needs to be fired.  I painted them on the sprue and made her my first job to get it over with and make sure I didn’t throw the sprue away by accident.

Since taking those pics I have gone back and applied two more coats of gloss varnish to the water and it now looks a lot clearer and wet.

I have also fully painted the white lion fur on 7 models, applied a base coat to all the unattached bases, and started work on the only 3 Dragon King armour based survivors.

I’ve also got back to playing Aeon Trespass.  My Hobby Pledges for 2024 focus more on me playing games this year.  I’m buying all these expensive campaign games and I actually want to play them.  Cycles 4 and 5 are supposed to arrive Q1 this year and I want to finish Cycle 3 before they get here.  At my current rate it should take around 6 weekends of play to do that, so being done before the end of Q1 should be simple enough.  We all know no KS gets delivered on time, especially with Chinese New Year happening around the shipping date.

That just leaves the Survivor minis for Kingdom Death.  That’s 35 models done in only 22 days.  One more than my target, and 2 days quicker.  Over a year I made a net dent in my pile of shame of one whole model.  Progress is progress, and my PoS almost grew instead.  Out of those 43 Normal models remaining I think I now have 30 built and primed, and have some paint on one of them.

4 days left. I got the first 3 models finished today, and made progress on the reamining two in the 2nd pic. Then I got a game of Godtear against an almost 7 year old. The third pic is my freshly painted minis against his Christmas presents. He’s had then two days and they’re not even primed yet. Bloody slacker! He gave me a tough first 2 rounds, but I won out on rounds 3 and 4, but he made me work for it. He plays very well.

5 days to go. I spent 8 hours today basing and varnishing 21 Godtear models (pics another time), but managed to find time to finish the Godhand, and paint this red cloak. I have visitors tomorrow but hope to get some painting in. I still want to get 4 more models finished, and it looks like 2 if my 5 days will mostly be used for socialising, and basing and varnishing. Thank God some of these models are very near completion.

I have to base and varnish all the Godtear stuff in the morning as my friends 6 year old is due round on Wednesday for a game and I want to play with my new toys.

I’ve been on leave for 1 whole day and I’ve got a whole lot more done than I’d hoped. I’ve finished 4 of the 5 Bone Eaters. The fifth has a whole other model slung over her shoulder. I painted the swords on the Godhand and the Bone Eater Survivor (Same name, but different character from the same box. That’s not confusing at all) with the Bone Eater blades. Then the Smog Eater flesh went smoother and faster than I thought, and their masks and smoke were all done in time for a few episodes of Lower Decks before bed. That’s 7 models finished today.
My target of 33 models was wrong as I apparently can’t count. Helena has 7 models in her box not 6. So thats 34 models I want to paint. This leaves me with 6 left to paint, all of which have work already done on them, and 9 days left. Tomorrow it’s Survivor flesh and Lion pelts.

Another weekend gone and 2 more days of work invested in this.  On Friday evening I pin washed and highlighted all the steels I’d previously airbrushed, and started work on the remaining Godtear flesh areas.  On Saturday I finished off the skin, and got Helena and her followers finished in one day.

Sunday morning I decided to focus on Keera.  She was the last Godtear model left to go.  I painted the Godhands cloak at the same time as it’s the same colour.  She took most of a day to do. When se was done I didn’t feel like doing anything too demanding.  It was getting late, and Keera’s colours had all been hard work to get solid coats for.  I decided to paint whatever that monster is on the Imitation Butchers base.  He will be kneeling on its corpse with an axe raised.  His hand is part of the base so I need this painted before I paint his skin.

I finished it kinda quickly so gave in and started work on the Bone Eaters.  The base colour for the skin was airbrushed. Painting the bone will likely mess that up so I got to work on the bone before shading and highlighting the skin so I can work messily, clean it up easier.  The bone is now based, and will get washes and drybrushes tonight.  I should have everything but the skin done on them by the weekend, and can then either go crazy or find my zen by painting their skin.

My inner Dave Gorman is now screaming “So what’s that done to the graph?” (If you don’t get that go watch this.  It’s a hilarious true tale of obsession, futility, and tequila.  It’s split in to 20-30 minute episodes so it’s not as demanding a watch as you might think.)

Anyway.  The numbers.

That’s 21 of 33 models done, with 10 days left. I’m 10.4 models ahead of schedule, but there’s only one Godtear mini left. I’ll have to actually put effort in to the remaining Kingdom Death models.  I’ve 12 models left, and 10 days off (and 3-4 evenings free).  It’s all KDM.  There’s a unit of 5 similar models, and a unit of 3 similar models.  That’ll make them go a little quicker.  I’ve also done some work on everything, even if it is just laying down the first base coat.  I’ll also possibly need the best part of a day for painting the lanterns and bases, and varnishing everything.

136 MTG: 33 Models in 24 Days Part 3

I’m ahead of the curve, but only because I got all the quick wins done first.  All I have left is the slow, hard work.  I suspect I’m going to mostly be setting up dominoes too.  Getting 70% through a model then realising I’m better off getting 50% through another and then painting the same colour on them both at the same time, but then realising I need to do work on a 3rd model before I should do something on the second.  Once the two units are done I might not be able to finish anything until I can finish everything.
