It’s that time of the year again where I pledge my 2015 hobby goals and recap what I actually achieved during 2014. Read on to see what I have planned and what I managed to get done.
2015 Hobby Resolutions
During 2015 I want to finish my Black Legion force by painting 10 Cultists and an Aspiring Champion. I also want to finish the Dark Vengeance Set by painting the Dark Angel Contingent. I’m really enjoying Deathstorm at the time of writing this so it would be awesome to finish the contents of that boxed game. Naturally I want to build and paint Smaug. Dare I mention Storm Claw and the Eldar Ghost Warriors box set? OK then, I want to paint them as well.
2014 Resolution Recap
Last years resolution was a mixed bag. I didn’t finish the last of my Necrons, instead I sold them to draw a line under that project. I did finish my Heldrake but not all the cultists. I did continue my 2nd Company Ultramarines by completing the 2nd edition box set but didn’t paint any units from the Ultramarine Megaforce. I didn’t even open the Ghost Warriors Megaforce. But I was right about painting new Tyranid and Hobbit models!

2014 has been a great year for me. It started off well with a few trips to Warhammer World to play through the Hobbit scenarios with Dan and Cat, which then turned into two White Dwarf Weekly articles and an Army of the Month feature in Warhammer Visions. I also went to the Warhammer 40,000 open day which was excellent. Going to Warhammer Fest with Stahly was a particular favourite. Picking up a finalist award each was only overshadowed by Phil Kelly asking us which one of you is Stahly. Amazing. I also entered Armies on Parade for the first time and picked up the gold award. Finally, my Imperial Knight was reader’s model of the week in White Dwarf weekly.
2014 is going to be a tough year to beat. Watch this space.
