Happy New Year, everybody!
I’m sure there will be a plethora of posts on their way, not just from me, where people expound upon their hopes and plans for the new year. Well, for now, I thought I’d come here to start looking at those hobby goals that I’d like to set. After my little retrospective from 2019, I was surprised at how little I managed to do there. So I’m going to set myself fewer goals – in the hope that I can achieve them, but also because I know that my priorities change, and I’d like to be able to have some flexibility to think, I’d like to get x done in the next three months.
So, without further ado, let’s get to it!
- Paint up those Grey Knights!
This is continuing the point from last year’s efforts. Now that I’m settled on keeping them as an army, I would like to get that army finished off, both built and painted. I only have a couple more units to build before I’m at the 1500 point mark, which I think is a decent point to aim for in this first iteration of the list. I’ve talked to some degree about this army already, but in the coming weeks and months I’ll be back with my full list ideas, so stay tuned for that!
- Finish off the odd Drukhari stuff that I have hanging about
This is something that I think needs doing, and is likely to be a fairly quick win, because I do have a lot of models that are kind-of done. Reavers, Clawed Fiends, Grotesques, more Warriors… the list goes on to something like 2000 points (in the current climate) of random stuff. I’d like to get this finished, so that I can then use it within the wider army.On a related note, I’d also like to give some focus to the Wych Cult models that I have hanging around, as I would like to try and dabble some more there. It’s an area that I have very rarely used, so I think it would be useful to have the models there and ready.
- Necromunda, generally!
So, I failed to do anything with this last year, but I am so in love with this game that I really feel that the time has come to actually play the bloody thing! I will still collect everything that comes out, for sure, but my current plan is to get the Dark Uprising box done, somehow. Again, there will be another blog coming soon that focuses on this, but I think, of all of these goals, I am most excited for this!
- Blackstone Fortress – play a full campaign!
Similar to the Necromunda goal, really – I want to play more of this game, as it has such a fascinating look at the 41st millennium. I’ve only played it once, so that definitely needs to change! I’d like to get the models painted, as well, but I think I want to get the game played, first and foremost.
- Try to thin out the unpainted / unwanted models
This definitely needs to be a thing. I have so many Deathwatch models, so many AdMech – even so many Drukhari models – that I could definitely do with thinning out the chaff!
- Finally – try to work on what I have had lying around for ages!
The Tempestus Scions, the Chaos Space Marines… there is a lot of stuff that I have that has been built for years, but just not painted or played with. This needs to change, as well! My plan for this is to try and focus on a single unit every month or two. Again, there will be a blog where I probably ramble about these plans coming out in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for that!

So here's where I got to with my #GreyKnights, I think it's around the 450 points mark. Grand Master, Brotherhood Champion, Strike Squad and Purifier Squad. Not much, but hopefully it'll be a fun side project to painting bugs and the like… #Warhammer40k #GreyKnights #Chapter666 #GrandMaster #BrotherhoodChampion #StrikeSquad #PurifierSquad #workinprogress #hobbyprogress #GamesWorkshop #Citadel #miniatures #hobby #awesome

So, I'm really hoping that I can get the new #Necromunda box built up, and to start getting some games in by the end of March. It's just too good to not be using! #Warhammer40k #Necromunda #DarkUprising #CorpseGrinderCult #PalaniteEnforcers #ZoneMortalis #skirmishgames #awesome #GamesWorkshop #Citadel #miniatures #hobby #buildingWarhammer
So that’s pretty much it, really!
