Happy New Year everybody. The old year has past and we start 2018 a new. As I have done the past few years, I want to plan out some projects to help guide me through my hobby life in 2018. Let's not dilly dally and hop right into them!
The "Tale of X Gamers" event continues into the new year. For that alone, I have a squad of aggressors, a repulsor tank, and the fire raptor. Along side that, I will also have twenty intercessors, three lieutenants, three reivers, an ancient, a squad of hellblasters, and the redemptor dread conversion. I will probably want an apothecary, a chaplain and/or another repulsor tank. This will probably keep me busy through April. I might take a break from them after the event is over or work on other armies in between squads. I love that paint scheme but I need a break.
For Christmas I got the orc faction for Shadespire. I think this will be a nice little diversion for me if I can find the time to play a few games. There are only four models to paint so the hobby part should go quickly.
I want to make some more terrain so I can switch up my board at home. It would also be nice to have a second board to play on if more people want to come over. I suspect I will be taking pointers from Blockade on terrain building as well as looking at my own rock outcroppings posts.
I need a second Primus for the cult. I also think that I want some more acolytes and aberrants since the metamorphs are not as good as they were. I hope the new codex will help bring them back up to their previous strength. Right now they feel a bit under-powered.
My immediate plans for the tyranids is a box of genestealers. I want to get some models with acid maws and I want to bulk out my numbers. I think forty is about right. I am not sure what else I need. I might try a few venomthropes instead of the malanthrope. I still think the malanthrope is a nice addition with synapse and the minus one to hit bubble. I alos have two more carnifexes to paint up.
Looking at what I have for the guard I think I might want to pick up a wyven or some ogryns. This is very low on my list. As for what I already own that needs work, I have two Valkyries and several scions to paint up. Since vets are no longer troops, I think I will have more scions in my army to do the heavy lifting.
TauI would love to get more tau done this year. I think finishing up three squads of troops, the ghostkeel and some crisis suits is not too much to ask. If I want to be a good boy maybe I should throw in a couple of hammerheads as well.
I got this game last year and have not played it yet. I would love to sit down with my wife and just learn to play it. Maybe I could have a few people over to try it out. I can even start painting the miniatures so the board will be colorful and fun. I would hate to go a year with out even trying it out.
Sisters of Battle
I have not forgotten this army either. I need to work on them this year. I only have maybe fifty models to paint so it should not take me long. I just need to stay motivated to do so. I am also hoping that they will get a codex with a return of the repressor. If anything, I will need to decide on a exorcist model. When I have that, I can look at what to do as an immolator or rhino. I know for sure I don't want that organ.
For the ad mech this year I plan on getting the hoplites kit to add to my ad mech. I also want to finish painting up my peltasts. I also am looking at more kastellan robots and maybe some breachers or priests to round out the list.
NecronsLast on my list this year are the space robots. I plan on doing some flayed one conversions. I planed to do them last year but never got around to it. hopefully this year I will. Other than that I don't have much planned.
there you have it, my 2018 new year resolutions. Of course they are subject to change. Games Workshop might actually make a non chaos or marine model, I might find a new game to play, or I forgot something when making this list. Whatever I do, I am hoping to beat my output for last year.
