What to paint next...

Many of you probably know that feeling; what to paint next? That awesomesauce character you just bought or that ten man squad who's laying about gathering dust? And that's why we make painting list!
I've seen quite a few people make fancy excel sheets, detailing every stage their miniatures are in. I'd love to have one of those but the amount of prep and maintaining the darn things put me off (yeah, I'm pretty lazy...). So I've searched for something more simple.
I've used Wunderlist for some time. Really simple and effective, but you have to make separate lists for all the stages, so that was pretty annoying. On my work I had to work with Trello (think of kanban for that matter) for a short while and I really liked the sticky note/task board feel. You just drag your task to the next stage until you've completed it. And since I work a lot on my iPad, I wanted something similar and something I could carry around with me. I came across the Taskboard app. Very simple and effective and it actually works for me. You'll have to spend some money in order to make more projects but it isn't all that much. It can get a bit crowded and hard to read if you have a lot of tasks but it's a minor nuance. All in all, it does it's job and you'll be very happy to see that "completed" list grow! You can make it as complicated if you want, by adding notes, colours and deadlines.
Here are some screens:

The wall of doom- I mean projects. Too bad you can't choose pics only colours.
What? Lizardmen! In due time dear friends, in due time!

My Blood Angels painting list:

The red dot marks the importance of this particular task.

So! What's your favourite tool for list keeping? Let me know in the comments!

'Ere Come the Grots!

Had them laying around for a while and they were the next thing on my Orks painting list, so here are some work in progress shots!

The skin and metals are almost done and I'm blocking in the blues!

I'm still tinkering on look and feel of my blog, so don't be suprised if the layout's changing a lot ;)

Waaagh! Black'eart

Hello peoples! Starting a new conversion project! Fellow Dakkanaut Ezra Tyrius came with a crazy idea of a "looted" Lugft Huron. What if Huron was not saved by Chaos but by Orks? That idea got me thinking and soon enough I had an idea what he'd look like. I'm a fan of Kromlech since I got the wartrakk from them and immediately looked on their website to see if they had something I could use for this project. And they had. The Juggernaut Mecha-Armour. I wanted to give Blackheart some bulky armour, to make him look menacing and orky, so this kit is perfect!

Here's a comparison between Kromlech's armour and a Space Marine:

Ded stompy I say! So, with most bits now in house, it's time to kick this project off! Let da Waaagh! begin!

Be sure to check the article on the right to read more about the project!
