A New Year!

A new year is here. With that, thousands of hobbyists dust off the armies on the shelf and make resolutions about getting it painted, going to tournaments, building new lists, starting a podcast, etc.

So I will too!

So first off, it's model updates. I needed to get warmed up and chose a lonely metal Plaguebearer to paint. Easy enough, and now he can count as a Herald in my Nurgle army.

I got tired of hearing the incessant chanting coming from my Beasts of Nurgle and started on them next. Got one close to being finished. These are harder to paint IMO. I'm not sure if I'll ever run them on the board but at least it's given me a good go with some paint.

So now some resolutions for this year. Most exciting for me is that my girlfriend wants to start an army! We used to play Warhammer Fantasy all the time back in the day as friends so she's got cred. I love that she has chosen the berserk hordes of Khorne as her force (this is SO her). I have a lot of  Khorne models already so getting her an up and running Daemonkin army shouldn't take too long. Just gotta invest in some Bloodthirsters for that cutie.

To get playing more, I gotta have a table. I was waiting for my landlord to clear some space in a loft here but it never happened so my plan is to build another one for my apartment. I'll keep it to 6X4 so it's easier to manage and store. I  will get on building it this week, as I'm have serious withdrawals from lack of playing on a regular basis. It makes me sad.

So, work on Nurgle army, help gf build Daemonkin force, build table (and paint my damn terrain finally), updater blog more, and have fun doing it. Here's to a productive 2016!

Nice resolutions. Looking forward to the part where you update the blog more ;) Happy New Years.

Great start for the new year! Those Nurgle models are looking really nice.

Good to hear you are committed to trying to start playing Warhammer 40k more frequently. Making your own gaming table should help a bunch and having someone to play against (girlfriend) will be fantastic. Good luck getting her army together. The bloodthirsters will be a fun project, albeit an expensive one (but worth it).

Good stuff man! I've thoroughly enjoyed your posts and look forward to seeing more in the new year - keep up the great work!

I personally really rate Beasts of Nurgle... In typical games I run one in each of the 3 slots available in the basic FOC chart. People really struggle to deal with them and they cause all manner of silly and funny mayhem!

Your own gaming table is a really great goal, and should be a lot of fun in the making!

Mad Mek - thanks, gonna be more productive this year!

Adam - Thank you sir! Since moving out I haven't played one game, and I attribute that to no table at home. I'm just not that keen on playing in local shops with kids grabbing models, rules guys butting in, all that. This table will remedy that.

Mord - Thanks dude, you too!

Tony - Great advice, gonna run them the same when I do use em'!
