2016: Hobby Resolutions

Happy New Year!
Hope you all had a great night!
But not like this. Hopefully.
So here we are, at the beginning of another year. As is customary at this time, I've prepared a set of hobby goals that I hope to meet during the next year. Like all New Years Resolutions, I'm probably going to be quite optimistic at my staying power, and the wheels will fall off around March. But here we go!

Modelling Resolutions

  • Skaven Army.
  • Frostgrave Warband.
  • Gorkamorka Mob.
  • Bret Army.
  • Veer-Myn Army.

Paint Resolutions:

  • Nurgle Warband.
  • Khorne Goretide.
  • Verminlord.
  • Zombicide: Black Plague Box.
  • Kingdom Death: Monster Box.

Misc Hobby:

  • Reduce Unpainted models (by any means necessary).
  • Finish a project before starting a new one.
  • More, regular, hobby time.
  • Update this blog more regularly.
  • Keep a tally of painted models vs. brought models.

Not the hardest resolutions, but I'll check back every few months or so to keep myself on track.

Here's to 2016!


  1. You have set yourself a mighty list of targets there Mr Dredd! I thought that your final one of 'keep a tally of painted vs bought models' was something that some of us need to also take on. Personally, I have slowed down on the buying and built up on the painting over the last few months but I never thought about recording my efforts in this way! So thanks for that, and good luck on those targets!

    1. Thanks! The idea is to slow down on the buying - but you know how it goes, a new project pops into my head and the "stop buying stuff" plan falls apart.

      The models in vs out is something I see on forums a lot, and seems like a good way to track progress, at the very least I won't be able to claim ignorance while my lead pile grows :).

      Good luck to you too in the new year!
