I could go on about how I want to do this and do that as far as hobby is concerned and god knows I tried last year. I had a good think about the last few years as far as hobby and more specifically painting is concerned. One thing sprang to mind and that was that I wanted a complete force for this game or that game. So this year quite simply for me as far as painting is concerned, I want to FINISH stuff. There are specific things that I want to finish as they have been WIP for a while now.
- Bolt Action British force
- Epic Space Marines
- One minion force for Warmahordes
- Middle Earth Strategy Battle Games (MESBG) Isengard force
The above are the main things that I am aiming to complete this year. In addition I think I would like to be able to have a completely painted dwarf Kings of War army. This involves painting a few odds and ends to add to my old WFB army. It may be a few things but it still involves time. Progress on my Brock Riders which are actually dwarves on pigs can be seen below. I’ve really enjoyed painting these so far but they are not finished yet.
I’d also like to make a start on painting my 40k Ad Mech force but this would be a stretch goal for me. Along with this stretch would be to make a start on painting my AoS Beastclaw force too. I’m also sure that along the way this year will involve me painting one or two Warhammer Underworlds warbands. I absolutely love this game at present and have already started to paint my goblin warband for the game.
The warmahordes and MESBG forces have the added incentive of me attending events this year – namely the 10th anniversary for the Welsh Masters (warmahordes) and Ardacon for MESBG. I’ve started my MESBG force by painting a test piece based on the original colour scheme of the painted figures that I already have. I’ve also started to paint some of my warmahordes force for the Welsh Open.
So there we have it. 2019 is the year for me finishing stuff that I have begun. Simplez.
