1) Learn to use the airbrush that I just got.

2) Don't start any new armies. I don't need anymore models right now. I've learned that GW will always have a sweet bundle or new model out. Buying something to stash it now doesn't make sense because it just stops you from getting that next sweet thing to come out.

3) Finish my Knights. This is close to being done. Models are magnetized and I have the leadbelcher primer ready.

4) Finish my necrons off. Again doable. I have 10 pretorians, two cloakteks, an ark and a TVault left. Everything except for the vault is mostly ready to paint.

5) Finish off my marines. Again doable. I have 10 termies, 10 bikes, a dread, 3 HQs and Sammy left.

I feel like these 5 things need to happen asap. After that, my next goal is to get my fantasy stuff done.

6) Tomb Kings. I went on a binge and now I got a bunch of new stuff that needs to be built and painted. I'm waffling on whether to put them on these resin bases or just stick with plain ones. It's a lot of cash to spend on basing an army.

7) Orcs and Goblins. My army is old and mostly unpainted. I'm determined to get it done before starting anything else.

Possible detours include:
If I decide to get some made to order stuff for my fantasy armies if that gets released. If the tomb kings troops ever get re-released that's going to be a lot of my money gone.

You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major who got pooh-poohed; made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cause it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment.

My goals as far as what I'm going to work on hobbywise are to paint my Blackstone Fortress models (the whole set if possible), tidy up my WIP collection by finishing a bunch of partially painted models that have been left languishing, and finish off a couple of box sets' models (namely Dark Imperium and Execution Force, both of which have just a handful of models left for me to paint). I've got more goals in my most recent post in my P&M blog.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 1/27/19, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1300 | Space Wolves: ~3400
Inquisition: ~300 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~800 | Talons of the Emperor: ~500
Tau Empire: ~6200 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~8100 | Death Guard: ~2800 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2100

Same as 2018, figure out how to make 8th edition worthwhile to play or figure out how to revive some more local interest in 7th edition. 8th is dreadfully unfun to play win or lose and my passion for the game has really flatlined. Love the setting, the hobby, and all my models to death but my god did GW do a good job of killing the fun for me.

Got loads of models to paint but without the game to work towards it doesn't feel very compelling to batch paint 20 Fire Warriors or go beyond the base coat on some drop pods.

I think most 40K players say this every year, but I'm gonna try and have all my minis painted by 2020. I sold minis I don't plan on doing anything with and I finally bought a airbrush to help with the workflow. So far off to a good start if I can keep from buying more miniatures.

My plans:

Keep painting at the current pace I am, over 200 models done in 2018.

Build some lists with the minis I have, and work out if there's any gaps. Try to keep purchases to what I need to fill out the lists rather than what I think looks cool. (I've got enough models I think look cool now).

Start painting with more purpose. I need to start finishing army's off. My painting works well when I just pick up a random mini and paint it, but it's meant I've got lots forces I can't game with due to list construction. I intend to start painting with some coherency now.

Start to actually get some games in. My local GW is a 10 minute drive, and I've only ever played at home. Once I have some viable lists, I plan to test them out in battle. Gaming is something that has suffered quite badly for me in 2018.

Building/painting/playing/focusing on my Slaanesh army. Over Christmas break I almost finished one unit of Daemonettes, finished 4 heralds and 1 Chariot. So...not a bad start.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

I plan to SLOW DOWN dramatically. Especially since I got married, I've completely burned myself out (at no fault of my wife) on spending literally *all* of my free time assembling and painting models. I literally spent all of the free time I had on assembling and painting to the point where I had zero time to even play much less spend a little time on even on other hobby.

Do I enjoy assembling models? Absolutely! Do I enjoy reading fluff and painting up models to match the fluff I read? Absolutely! Do I enjoy the thought of those models more-or-less coming to life on the table when I play? Absolutely!


I honestly have no want to spend any real amount of time painting at all anymore because of how much time I spent this past year on trying to get armies of models painted.

Will I work on painting Warhammer models this year? I'm sure I will. Right now, though, I'm sticking to mostly pre-painted Bandai models (Gundam, Star Wars, Star Blazers, etc.) and some unpainted WWII models that I will take my time painting as they are only a single model rather than an army's worth of models.

Awesome Autarch

Dallas area, TX

Aside from getting my "all 9 first founding Chapters" Primaris Deathwatch unit finished, my only big project for 2019 is helping my sons build up their 40K armies
They've got UMs and Salamanders for now, but my oldest recently expressed interest in getting a Guard Battalion with some tanks.
My youngest may or may not want to build up some of his Necrons, but I'm not sure. He doesn't yet have a lot of painting endurance, so it's slow going.

I might add some Eldar units here and there, but overall my 40k collection is pretty full.

Yeah I'll join you in prayer for that.

All I've got planned for 2019 is adding on a smaller detachment of Harlequins to my Eldar force so having some plastic Banshees and Scorpions to go along with that would be nice.
