So, in order to convince (read: force) myself to paint more, I am doing some various challenges in 2015. The first is the annual Tale of WMH challenge - a mere 5 pts per month (or one warcaster/warlock), and that's generally easy enough to do. I get two GOOPF cards (which I can use if I get nothing painted for the month), and I managed to get most of the way through 2014. (In 2013, I think I used my cards and got bounced by August or September.)
I hope to do even better, since I am also thinking of attempting the 1 pt/day challenge. I haven't seen the particulars of this one, but I'm imagining that is something like "Paint an average of 1 points worth of Warmachine/Hordes models per day, for 2015."
To help force those two, I am really going to try and hold myself to the "Play it painted" challenge. I will allow myself a (short) grace period for two models - the Transfinite Emergence Projector and possibly the Sacral Vault. I need some practice games with the TEP before AdeptiCon, and there is a good chance that I will either get the Vault at AdeptiCon, or en route to it, so I may not get it painted before playing any Gator games there.
I am also doing the Bartertown painting challenge. No set goals, but I earn a variable number of points for every model I paint. In addition to earning points for all the WM models, I want to paint up a lot of my Firestorm Armada, Relic Knights, Malifaux, and so on. This will help give me incentive.
ETA - I'd really like to average one model (or base) per day, but that might be a goal too far.
