View Full Version : New Year's Resolutions, Painting wise.

01-01-2008, 13:09
The way I figure it, I am not the only person who has a goal set in their mind about the upcoming year.

The best way to accomplish the goal is through a bit of peer pressure. In this form, the New Years Resolution has been a method used to motivate us to a goal of bettering yourself.

My New Years Resolutions are:
To paint my Marines up to 4000 points
To paint my Guard to 4000 points
To settle on a paint scheme for my nids and get 1500 points painted
To start and finish painting my Warhound Titan.
edit: Heck, I will add a bit more here.
Necrons to 1500
Tau to 2000

We can post updates on what we have accomplished here over the months.

Painting and spending less money on warhammer

however the company may see a huge reduction in profit if i do so i best just stay the same =D

I plan to finish my 5000(give or take a few hundred points) points or so of Imperial Guard painting and modelling wise.

Paint a 2000pt Necron army.
Paint a 1000pt Dark Angels or Salamanders army.

Do a display collection of models i like the look of, purely for painting pleasure, such as the Games Day 07 Orc (i have two, i'll paint two up, one with a bright GW green skin tone, one with a darker catachan green-ish skin tone), a few Eldar Harlequins (new and old), a few IG classics and anything that catches my eye.

Purchase an airbrush gun and become proficient, as well as build my Cities of Death table.
I also plan not to buy anything besides paint and hobby accessories this year.

Choosing an army and sticking with it!

My new year's resolution is to slow down!

@ Lordi That made me chuckle :D

My goal for the calender year is to paint my Guard army to a standard i am pleased with, Theres roughly 3500 pts to do :(

Then i want to complete 2000 pts of Dwarfs.

And finally get my COD board built

Good luck all for the following year

Paint at least 2000 points worth of Late Romans for a Warhammer Ancient Battles army and, if I have time, paint a Hun army.

01-01-2008, 23:09
Painting this 6'000+ points of Blood Angels I have.

Painting all the other random stuff - including deamons, chaos marines, vampire counts etc. - at some point.

01-01-2008, 23:42
I'll be realistic... given my usual painting rate I plan to paint:

2000 points of vostroyans (no, really)

getting at least 2000 points of dwarfs finished so that I can play with a fully painted army for once in my life!

IF I find the time, I'd like to paint 1500 points for my FoW american rifle company... and play some games, too :p

Well, it's nice to have hopes at least :D


EDIT: oh, and I like the idea of this thread!

02-01-2008, 01:02
Gonna be realistic....
Paint all LOTR (400+ models)
Paint 2000pts of Deathwing/Dark angels

Been waiting for a New Year commitment thread!

2 Goals, GW wise:

1 - Finally finish my LatD army to 2000ish points so I have a playable army again.

2 - Build (not sure about painted yet) my converted nids to 2000 pts

Try not to get tempted attempting doing too much and not finishing it ...

Damn you Norsehawk, you took my idea of making a resolution log! Lol:p

Mine are
1) Get Wood Elves all painted up(around 900 pts) and get them up to 1,500 pts.

2) Get Eldar painted(about 930 pts;trying to get them up to Apocalypse; long term project)

3) Get other random minis painted(and stop buying minis that can't be played in my armies:p)

Thats all for now.


03-01-2008, 10:35
1) Finish my wood elves.

2) Purchasing a complete daemon army for 40k, assemble and paint it.

3) Assemble and purchase the last parts of my deathguard and start on them right after the daemons.

1) Finish My ToFP Empire army. (+ extra 1k of empire i have actually).

3) Get my Tau built and painted (1,500)

4) finish all my extra (display) models

04-01-2008, 11:27
Only a few people with painting resolutions? Come on people, step up, put it out here so you have the peer pressure to get the stuff done!

05-01-2008, 10:50

1. finish my chaos army (buy, build and paint a predator, rhino, greater daemon of tzeentch, 8 khorne Berzerkers, 6 csm's and a Dreanought)
2. start a 1500 pt IG chaos army to make an apocalypse sized force
3. Try and get as many awesome models as i can than paint em'

05-01-2008, 11:56
I solemnly swear to finish all of the following by the end of this year:

paint 800 pts of Tyranids BEFORE I buy another Nid
fully paint my O&G up to 2000 pts, currently at about 500
fully paint a 500 points Evil LotR army

just for laughs, I also intend to...
build a gaming board and terrain suitable for all three game systems
check out my old Orc Epic stuff I found at last in a box in my garage in order to re-build and reinforce it
keep my work station at a constant level of tidiness and cleanliness

Happy New Year
