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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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

I'll try to stay realistic : finish (buy, assemble and paint) my 2Ks of Night Goblins ... only 14 Hoppers and 3 Squig Herds to buy *sigh*

Painting wise, I have 3 of my 7 "main units" done, with all 4 others a few models from completion ...
