Lets see...

Objectives include
Finishing my ongoing project to have all my Sisters repainted by the time the plastic ones come out so my old ones look good with new ones.
Building and painting 11 more guardsmen I have on my desk.

Not 40k, but...
Finishing my battery of 25 pdr guns.
Painting my company of T-34/85 tanks.
Buying some infantry and more artillery, and figuring out what I'm doing with the aforementioned tanks.

Guardsmen, hear me! Cadia may lie in ruin, but her proud people do not! For each brother and sister who gave their lives to Him as martyrs, we will reap a vengeance fiftyfold! Cadia may be no more, but will never be forgotten; our foes shall tremble in fear at the name, for their doom shall come from the barrels of Cadian guns, fired by Cadian hands! Forward, for vengeance and retribution, in His name and the names of our fallen comrades!

Working through my backlog. I've earmarked 100 models I want to work on. Most are at least base coated already but lots need highlighting or other detail work.
I've kept the goal simple though: I'm not allowed to buy more models than I finish. This is more tricky than it sounds as I usually buy multiple boxes at a time or get bundles.

More than likely sell off my 40k stuff and focus on WQ:BSF as my 40k fix.

I don't have the time anymore for mass scale combat games, and while the miniatures are truly wonderful the current 40k edition is a hot mess and just leaves me cold.

The objective of the game is to win. The point of the game is to have fun. The two should never be confused.

GW kinda did me a favour. Ever since they introduced Primaris, I no longer have any desire to do an Imperial SM army.

Thats left me available to do the many Xenos armies I've always wanted to do.

But first, I have to finish Death Guard. I've already airbrushed and done all the chipping rusting effects on it. Now, I have to go in and hand paint the rest.

I also have an Empire, Wood Elf and Beastmen army for WHF to finish.

Also, I want to start DE again since they were unchanged with chapter approved.

They'll probably end up releasing Black Legion or Sisters of Battle so I'll probably have to get those too.

Also, a 40K table...

Revving Ravenwing Biker

Hanoi, Vietnam.

Short term:

Finish assembling the contents of the Silver Tower box I got over Christmas. Painting is not a priority as I intend to use the game as a means to ease my girlfriend into the idea of miniature war gaming.

Finish painting my all-scouts kill team as soon as I get them back from the guy who's priming them from me.

Finish painting my Stormcasts Start Collecting! and be ready for my first game of Age of Sigmar.

Long term:
If all goes well with the Silver Tower, I'll also pick up Shadows over Harrenhal and Blackstone Fortress.

Finish my goal of being able to field an entire Brigade of green wing only Dark Angels supported by a Spearhead of tanks, a Vanguard of Deathwing Terminators and an Outrider of Ravenwing Bikers before any of those models are discontinued in favour of their new Primaris equivalents.

Ayuh, me too. I've long been back-and-forth on starting an <IMPERIUM> army to 'restore' 'order' to my planet, but Primaris finally nailed the lid on that idea shut for good.

Putting together an Iron Warrior army - I love the organic/machine mashup look of helbrutes and forgefiends.

I've got some skitarri leftover from a purchase of Forgebane, I'm planning on getting some third party bits and use them as cybered up cultists.

1. Play more games
2. Build more scenery (both bought and scratch built)
3. Persevere with the airbrush
4. Clean my gaming room (properly)

And one resolution, not to move onto a new project until I have completed the one I'm currently doing.

Urgh, to drown in projects again, mostly.

Build dozens more tall scale Death Guard and their engines, finish an AT titan legio while getting most of the year's upcoming releases, paint some of my large BFG backlog, set up a bunch of narrative games or even a campaign, try to play more regularily in any case, try to finish a swathe of terrain both 28 and 6 mm...

Maybe even try to write a cohesive battle report or two.

I was shocked to learn that in order for me to use my Haemonculous Coven list, I was going to be forced to add Scourges (because Brigades). I was a bit surprised by this essentially mandatory addition for Coven Brigades but that is what I'm working on. Making matters slower i quickly realized that these are extremely top heavy so i had to experiment with weights on a slotta base. I settle on Buckshot as the answer ($45-$60 for a bag plus glue isn't cheap). but weighing them down and painting them is the project on hand.

So I started a new project after receiving an airbrush and an Imperial Fist Battleforce box for the holidays - decided to go Crimson Fists.

Even pledged to have a chunk of it completed by the beginning of March, but now it appears my work will be sending me overseas for 12 weeks and I'll be unable to meet that deadline :(

I'm fairly sure that, by definitionm, nothing shiny and/or new is ever going to appear in the Death Guard arsenal.

Tarnished and antique, maybe...

I hope that either vigilius 2 or the spring FAQ is going to add primaris to the GK codex. If that happens I would try adding some of them.

My painting goals for the year were to paint 2000 points of my Crimson fist army but so far since mid December I've already smashed through 800 points worth so it's going very well.

I'll be purchasing the shadow spear set so it looks like I'll be reinforcing my fists and possibly starting a CSM army too...

Firstly I plan to finish my 2000pts Tau tournament list, i'm going to try to make it to a few GTs this year. Almost done, everthing is painted and based, only have 24 firewarriors out of 72 left to edge highlight and do the detail work.

Second finish the 7 out of 10 custodes bikes I have left to paint, they're all basecoated, washed, shaded and based, so more detail work. Got 3 Allarus Custodes to assemble and paint to round out the 2k points.

Not exactly 40k but I'm going to rebuy and paint all the 54mm Inquisitor figures (nearly a complete collection) I somehow lost in the house move. 54mm Artemis is in the post and I even managed to source the super rare helmet booster pack for him. Looking forward to this project a lot, the 54mm scale is a joy to paint. I might even try to introduce my mate to the game once I have enough models painted up.

I've always wanted a necron army, so a 2000pts Sautekh list will be a fast project for the year. Had Obyron and Zahndrekh for christmas, Obyron I've already painted.

Fininsh some ultramarine scouts I've had for ages...

Battle sisters army when the new line comes out. Co-project, already have Celestine my girlfriend painted.

Possibly start the Eldar and Dark Eldar armies that I've wanted to do for ages, Dark Eldar tournament list is probably the priority, Eldar list will be just models I've always loved, fire prisms, wraith heavy.

I for one welcome our new revenant titan overlords...

1. Finish my 2,000 point Primarus Ultramarines (Got about 750 painted now- Inceptors, Commander, Lt's, Ancient)
a. Stormtallon
b. Unit of Scout Snipers
c. 6x Interceptors
d. Redemptor Dread
e. Librarian
f. Apothecary
g. Marneus Calgar and his Guard
h. Repulsor
I. Hellblasters

2. Finish Bobby G

After that, I have two possible paths:
1. Imperial Fists
2. Eldar Wraithguard army

I also have two 30K projects coming up: Imperial Fists and Blood Angels

This is for 40K only. For other game systems:
1. Skaven for AoS (with the new army book coming out, it's made me want to revisit and update my old fantasy army)
2. Night Haunts/Death Army for AoS
3. The Watchers for Wild West Exodus
4. Couple warbands for Warhammer Underworlds
5. Trollbloods for Hordes
6. Retribution for Warmachine
7. Death Watch for Kill Team

Yeah, I have a lot sitting on my painting desk. Probably too much. This year, my goal is to completely finish my projects before moving onto the next one. Too many times I get about 75% done with a squad/unit or model, put it down, and pick something else up.

Are you 100% dedicated to the ideal of having only GK keyworded units in your force?

Because if you're willing to Battleforge your army as Adeptus Astartes you could add those primaris right now. Run your army as two detachments.
1st detachment = GK - make one of the characters your warlord & you have access to all your GK goodies (as questionable as those might be),
2nd detachment = Primaris (from whatever chapter you please). Obviously paint them to match your GK.
Or you could just run it as one combined Adeptus Astartes detachment & deal with whatever you'd lose for not being 100% GK keyworded. From all I've read you might not be any worse off....

Plans for the year:

-Paint more than I buy
-Play more games. My "cost per game" when considering the money I spend on models and hobby supplies is just too damn high...
-Get rid of some of the armies I never play, or at least of some of the models that I absolutely know will never be painted or be set up on a table for a game.
-Play some Blood Bowl

and last but not least:
-Get the kids in the house to switch to 8th edition so the games are a bit less cumbersome...
