This post comes a bit late in the year, but most of my effort is being put toward finishing up my current batch of Grey Knights.
I wanted to make a hobby road-map of sorts for 2015, as I have a ridiculous amount of small (and not-so-small) projects lying around from 2013 and 2014, and clearly not enough focus to complete much of anything.
My intention is to keep it short, and focus on a few things at once so I don't get distracted. Additionally, I will associate the completion of certain landmarks on my road-map with incentives, typically the purchase of new kits or other hobby-related stuff.
So, without further ado, the list:
- Complete painting 5x Grey Knights
- Complete painting Vindicare Assassin & Jokaero Weaponsmith
- Finish plasticard rock basing for the remainder of my Tyranids (+ 5 GKs)
- Finish putting together 5 GKs
- Finish Magnetizing odds/ends of my Tyranids
Reward: Hive Tyrant kit
|I hate to follow the masses, but this is the simplest way to eventually get myself in the Win column.|
- Varnish my completed GK miniatures
- Add basing grass tufts to varnished miniatures
- Build Tyrant to level of completion of remaining army
- Glue sand/pebbles to all of my Tyranid Bases
- Glue sand/pebbles to my styrofoam hills
- Paint my 6 Rippers to completion & varnish
Reward: Tyranid Tyrannocyte kit
- Paint my 2 Crusaders
- Build my Tyrannocyte to level of completion of remaining Tyranids
- Paint my 2 Servitors
- Paint my 5 Psykers
- Finish basing my Sector Imperialis building so that it is ready to paint
- Finish basing outlines for remainder of my ruins
Reward: Grex Tritium Airbrush Kit.
This is my very own Holy Grail of Rewards for 2015 - it will help tremendously with my Tyranids, as well as all the terrain I have in various stages of completeness. Once I get to this point, I will re-evaluate my priorities and make up a new list, which will likely be along the lines of "airbrush EVERYTHING."
I feel I am being quite ambitious, at least based on my 2014 output, but am confident in my new-found hobby mojo, and am hoping to have the Airbrush in my hands sometime in the summer, so I have a few months of playing around before the weather kicks me out of my garage.
Alright, that's it for this post!
