Painting Projects for 2012

I was reviewing my personal goals for 2012 and found my list of the painting projects which I hope to complete by EOY.  This is an ambitious list and probably won't be completed this year.

Several other bloggers have posted their painting to-do's as well. Time management experts claim that you are more motivated to complete your list when you let others know your goals. Accountability creates the motivation.

Here is my list. The asterisks '*' denotes the level of priority.

  1. Repaint the Warmaster High Elves, paint and base the new figs. This is a purchased army and needs to be stripped, painted and based. Broken spears issue needs a solution.***
