About a month ago I mentioned I was putting together a painting chart to assist with both organising and motivating my Blood Drinker Strike Force project. Well surprisingly enough, I've actually got on and finished it...the chart that is, not the project (softly, softly, catchee Jokaero, as they say); still I hope it's fairly swift output can be taken as a sign of things to come.
I got the idea from Admiral Drax who has designed a very neat and efficient system using MS Excel; I contacted Drax and he very kindly mailed me a couple of example templates he'd used for his awesome Guard Army.
With technical assistance from my Excel savvy Wife (I didn't just marry her for her looks), I soon adapted it for my 'Drinkers without frying my hard drive and here it is.
Having the whole force set out on a template like this made me realise that prior to this I had gotten to a point in my miniature collecting where I couldn't see the Chapter for the Marines as it were. As you can see there is a lot of work to do, but the charts already helped by getting me to go through the Forge and organise the resources to set about completing the project. The resulting excess from this 'purge' can be seen in my ongoing Ebay Auctions.
I now have a clear path to my goal, with the visual motivation to get me there.
My thanks again to Drax for sharing this handy little system, another good example of the community spirit the Hobby engenders. Right let's get some more of those boxes green shall we...
