Morning folks,

Hobby time at home is going to be a bit limited the next few days so I've not got any painting pledge stuff to show... So I thought I'd go back and re-visit my "2013 Hobby Goals" post and update it with what I've done so far this year.

Here goes!

- 1 Cryptek
- Imotekh
- Trazyn
- 1 Catacomb Command Barge

Dark Eldar:

- 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.


Chances are, there'll be a few more bits added to this list in the next few weeks each time a Codex drops but overall I've made a bit of progress and chipped a few sections off the list.
That's all for now!


  1. Ha, this list looks incredibly similar in scope to my to-do list. Especially the terrain goal.

    Best of luck!

  2. I should do a list of to do`s but I don't seem to have the time to do that let alone actual hobby stuff. maybe I should just commit to at some point this year I need to get my nurgle & khorne daemons listed on Ebay along with a load of chaos marine stuff.
    pick 1 of my many massive armies & get everything painted for them. probably be the chaos marines I'm keeping that way can include getting my daemon engine conversions done as well.
    & actually post another blog lol
