Reaper Challenge League 2021 Edition: June

Months of working too much, then suddenly school’s out and the work-to-free-time ratio is inverted. The strange thing is that it actually takes time to get used to it. Idle hands and all that.

So anyway, I have completed all the challenges for June, the second quarter, and the single bi-annual page-o-rama challenge. So long as my collaboration partners in the 4+ group get their stuff done and posten in time (the deadline is tomorrow) that will be a clean sweep of everything up until now.

I still find the RCL to be a fun way to select minis to paint, and it manages to keep the motivation up. However, it also makes me paint mainly Reaper minis (what a strange coincidence that is), and some of them are decidely rush jobs.

Going forward, I *just might* be toning down the RCL participation a little, especially if I get the inspiration to paint something not Reaper-related in stead.
…he said, knowing full well that the Bones 5 kickstarter delivery starts end of July…so when that arrives sometime this autumn, there will be more new Bones lying around than ever before.

An aside that might illustrate what I am getting at: The third edition Age of Sigmar box is soon to launch. I still have the first and second edition minis prepped and ready to paint…and the Warcry factions, the Indomitus, the new Warhammer underworlds warbands, not to mention Star Saga, Shadows of Brimstone, Forbidden Fortress, etc etc etc…and those minis I just 3D printed. Kickstarters I had forgotten I had backed turn up every so often as well…Altar Quest? Limbo? Chronicle X? League of Infamy? Solomon Kane? The list goes on.

But enough rambling.
