Birthday Contest! Miniature Tim is 2 Years Old!

Has it really been 2 years already?! While my archive may go back to 2010, I didn't really start blogging until May of 2011, with the launch of Miniature Tim.

With my first blog birthday, I cited quite a few articles from a handful of blogs that I read and re-read on opinions on successful blogging. Check out all the links and article here: "Miniature Tim is 1 Year Old!"

In the meantime, read on for what's coming up for the blog, as well as this year's Birthday Contest!

High-Res Eldar Images from Digital White Dwarf

While I may have stopped reviewing the Digital White Dwarf monthly, I do still want to share the wonderfully high-resolution images of the next new and shiny models coming our way on occasion. With the stir that the upcoming Eldar release has caused, I feel it only fit to share all the images that are plastered within the new White Dwarf I just downloaded to my iPad from Newsstand.

So without further ado, read on and enjoy the pictures!!

Getting Back in the Saddle

Boy, it's been a while since I put knife to plastic, putty to figure or even paint to resin. Overtime at work, work trips, helping my wife prep for an out-of-country mission trip, and other outside forces have conspired against any sort of productive hobby time lately. So how to fix this?

Get back to the basics of working when I have the time to do it.

Now that means I'm writing blog posts and working on models post 9pm at night, but I'm working on them again, and it feels good!

So what's on the desk?

Get More Done with Time Management!

This is one of those topics where you'd think that the subject line alone would be enough. Do you get more done with appropriate Time Management? Of course you do! By the logic of the statement alone, managing your time appropriately is key to getting anything done, be it at work, at home, or indeed even in our hobby. The question though, is how. How do we appropriately manage our time so that we not just get time for our hobby, but we manage the time spent in our hobby so that we get the most out of it, and actually complete projects?

We're going to take a look at some key areas on how good time management can actually help us in the hobby, starting with how to make time for it in the first place, to applying those skills to small-scale projects, large-scale projects, and competition-level projects.
