I have decided to take on the challenge of painting at least one miniature a day for the month of November, 30 minis in 30 days. I got the idea from a similar concept for writing NaNoWriMo where the goal is to write a novel (or a specific word count) during the month of November. The challenge will help me to get into the habit of painting regularly, thus both improving my painting by practice and also clearing at least a small part of the miniature backlog I have at the moment
Weekdays will consist of painting minions, less detailed miniatures, and extra miniatures that have remain unpainted for far too long. The paint job on these will be more towards tabletop quality, as life and lab (work) take up the great majority of the day. The weekends will see painting of heroes and larger monsters. The more flexible weekend will allow for more detail, shading, and highlighting. Display quality work will happen most likely during the weekends, in addition to the miniature a day, as this level of painting takes more time than I have in a single day.I will post daily pictures on my Instagram account and will make a blog post with a slideshow of the miniatures painted at the end of November.
