Carrying on the proud tradition of hobby recaps and resolutions on Tale of Painters it’s my turn today to pledge my 2016 hobby goals and recap what I actually achieved during 2015. Read on to see what I have planned and what I managed to get done.

2016 Hobby Resolutions

During 2016 I want to paint an Imperial Knight, I want to finish the Assassinorum Execution Force boxed game and I want to add the Space Wolves from the Stormclaw boxed set to my Army of the Imperium project. I also want to use up the remaining Space Marine models from my Megaforce I’ve had for a few years now. 

2015 Resolution Recap

I actually did ok with last years promised resolutions. I completed my Black Legion, I completed the Dark Vengeance set and I completed the Deathstorm set. I failed by not even starting Smaug, Eldar Ghost Warriors set or the Stormclaw boxed game.

So let’s have a look at the models I did paint this year.

2015 was pretty cool. I saw a lot of my work in White Dwarf Weekly and Warhammer Visions including a huge Army of the Month feature on my Tyranids. I also went to the Warhammer World Grand Opening and the 40k Open Day. All in all not a bad hobby year.
