This blog will primarily serve as a way for me to chart my progress as I learn to paint miniatures. I’m finding this to be a pretty fun new hobby, and I think I’m doing OK for a beginner.
So far I have two minis on CMON:
My initial goal was to paint a mini to tabletop standard and get a rating of 5 or better by the end of the summer. My first entry, the Genestealer, is currently at a 4.7 but the Ghordson Driller is at a 6.1. Success!
At this point I’ve been painting for around a month and have completed 8 Genestealers, 1 Termagant, 4 Space Marines, 1 Warjack, and 3 zombies. I also painted a giant insect.
Seeing as how this blog is open to the public, I feel slightly more accountable with my progress, so I would like to set a few goals for myself:
1.) Add at least one new mini to CMON every two weeks (and at least one a week during the summer)
2.) Earn a 6.5 or better after 40 ratings by the September 1.
3.) Earn a 7.0 or better after 40 ratings by December 1.
4.) Continue to have fun painting minis.
As for tools, I love the VGC line, and I’m hoping to add a couple nice brushes to my toolbox soon. I’m also strongly considering an airbrush, though I’m not 100% convinced I need one. We will see.
Anyway. Peace and soul.
