2014 in review

Greetings all.

Welcome to my final post of 2014!

This has actually been a pretty good year for me hobby-wise. I've painted exactly 80 models (of various shapes and sizes), which is damn good going by my standards.

Not the best picture I know, but I think you get the idea. Everything you see there, bar the boards, was painted this year. To give you a run down, that is:

  • Great unclean one
  • Nurgle daemon prince
  • 16 flesh hounds
  • Portalglyph
  • Khorne herald on juggernaut
  • 12 1st edition horrors
  • Slaanesh daemon prince
  • 12 2nd edition horrors
  • 14 screamers
  • Nine familiars
  • Three rocky outcrops
  • Two tzeentch heralds on discs
  • Three flamers
  • Chaos bastion
  • Be'lakor
  • Fateweaver
  • Tzeentch herald on foot
Phew, not bad! I'm pleased with my progress so far, but there is so much to do in the next year :S

My goals for 2015 are:
  • Paint 100 models! Specifically that is: 40 daemonettes, eight or so nurgling bases, 20 cultists, two soul grinders, three plague drones, khorne daemon prince (forge world), tzeentch daemon prince, slaanesh daemon prince, chaos knight... Plus a bunch of other stuff that I haven't quite decided on yet.
  • Play at least 40 games. I've done a lot of painting this year, but not played nearly enough games. Gotta rectify that in 2015.
  • Expand my daemons. I've got about 1850 points fully painted at the moment, but I want to paint a whole bunch more to give me options for different lists. I might also mix things up with some unexpected allies (orks, necrons, maybe even "crone world" style eldar or radical space marines like the Relictors).
  • Make a start on my chaos marines/renegades & heretics. I haven't quite decided which yet, but either way they'll work well as allies to my beloved daemons. 
So all in all, not a bad year. Roll on the next one!

  3. Haha thanks brothers! It's been a pleasure following the both of you too (and a bunch of other blogs that I've come across this year). I can already feel the oppressive weight of this year's models pushing on me! The first part of January is going to be spent doing assembly work though... Tedious but necessary!
