2013 Hobby Goals - Update

Been a bit without a blog again, due to people going back to work and general "Meh"ness of January.

Couple of things have happened in the mean time such as the release of the Dark Angels codex and models, a resurgence of Blood Bowl at the club and preparations for tournaments this year.

At the start of January I tried to outline my overall hobby plan for 2013 and what I would like to achieve in the following year, dependant on where the hobby goes for me and what GW plan to release. Here was the post in qustion: 2013 Hobby Goals

The original list was pretty optimistic as it was and also wasn't accounting for some other things I've found in the mean time, nor did it account for new releases.

I'm going to paste the original list in here and tack in the newer stuff I've thought of, or found, since writing the list... Freshly added goals will be highlighted.


Imperial Guard:
- Find a use for, and assemble, 18 plastic Cadians.
- Buy 3 lots of the hostile environment special weapons upgrade sets from Forge World.
- Assemble and paint 3 special weapons teams.
- Wash vehicles to dull them down and match rest of the army.

- Spray and paint the following...
- 1 Cryptek
- Imotekh
- Trazyn
- 1 Catacomb Command Barge
- 1 Overlord
- 10 Immortals
- 5 Lychguard
- 1 Ghost Ark
- Go back and wash older models to match them with new stuff.

Dark Eldar:
- Paint the following...
- 10 Hellions
- 1 Raider
- 1 Razorwing
- Re-purpose my Dark Elf corsairs into Trueborn.
- Decide if I'm ever going to use the old DE models and do something about it.

- Paint up and glue on some power axes for the Sergeants.

- Actually bother writing an army list.

- Get bits for 2 Veterans I found in my box to convert to Chaplains or Vet Sergeants
- Paint Cypher
- Spray and Paint Dark Vengance bits

- Get hold of as many Mycetic Spores as I can
- Get the army to at least 2,000pts before the end of the year.
- Ensure that the army is fully assembled and painted.

- Actually play some Fantasy!

Blood Bowl:
- Assemble and 13 Gnoblars for Ogre team
- Buy box of Ogre Bulls for Ogre and Human team
- Make some spare Blood Bowl pitches, templates and counters that can be left at the club.
- Start a Blood Bowl league

- Build / buy enough buildings for gaming table at home.
- Organise hobby storage better.


So yeah, more added onto the pile without including anything that gets released or updated this year or any crazy whimsical purchases from Hobbycraft or whilst bored on a Sunday evening.

Will update my January painting pledge on Monday when I've hopefully made some progress!
