Happy New Year to you all. I hope you all had a great Christmas. The first week back at work is almost complete, the early mornings have come as a real shock to the system after a lazy Christmas break.
Have you all made your resolutions? Broken any yet? I am going to be brave and list what my (hobby) New Year’s Resolutions are going to be, I’m hoping it will spur me on:
- Finally start painting my Space Wolf army and complete a Battle Force to start gaming with i.e. 1 x Grey Hunter Squad (10 Men), 1 x Scout Squad (5 Men), 1 x Rhino and 1 x Sky Claw Assault Squad (5 Men).
- Start collecting my Skaven army and complete a Regiments worth to game with (to fill the time until the Warhammer Forge Chaos Dwarves miniatures are released hehe).
- Paint up my Escher Gang for Necromunda.
- Start collecting my SM Epic Army (Not decided on a chapter yet but probably Space Wolves).
I have made a much more promising start than usual, I have opened my box of Escher Gangers for cleaning, I have the fantastic new ‘Ikit Claw’ miniature pre-ordered. He will be a nice addition to the skaven I got in the ‘Island of Blood’ boxset from my wife, for Christmas. I’ve also pre-ordered the Skaven: Battle Magic Cards (I’m a sucker for anything hobby releated with the words ‘Limited Edition’ or ‘While Stocks Last’ hehe). Not too sure what my first purchase will be for the Epic Space Marine army, I’m leaning towards some tanks to start it all off maybe. I know Epic isn’t very popular anymore, so this is just an army to sit on my shelf as a show piece.
It would be good if you bring me up on this from time to time so I actually pull my finger out this year, feel free to pester me on here about how each of these are going.
I was browsing the Games Workshop website yesterday and was very pleased to see that they are re-releasing ‘Bjorn The Fellhanded’ miniature, available again from 22nd January. I’ll have to find some room in my Space Wolf Battleforce for that miniature, one of my all time favourites.
My grand plans for painting and sculpting practice over the Christmas holidays went out the window, but now I’m back I’ll be working on them in the evenings again, so expect more updates very soon.
I did find some time amongst all the festive mayhem to finally bring my ‘Painting Imperial Fists’ tutorial over from my old site so you can now find that in my tutorial section.
