Hope you've all had an awesome start to your New Year! I'll start 2016 with a brief look back and a glimpse into what the next 12 months holds for my hobby projects =)
A look back - and a look ahead!
Anaziel - a Mhara Ghal Dreadnought of the Word Bearers Legion - I made him for a painting challenge (I think shortly before FW announced their own Mhara Ghal :P) and will use his scheme for my other Word Bearers too!
Another highlight of 2015 were my Salamanders - I still have a few units to complete for them in the future!
This Sons of Horus Consul Delegatus was also made for a painting challenge - I wrote some cool lore for him (he is the Captain of the Ikon for those of you who know the SoH lore) and may feature more pics of him in a later post :)
Archmagos Draykavac - the first model for my future Dark Mechanicus army :)
A Thousand Sons Consul Praevian - there is some neat fluff about robot-controlling psykers so I needed to do one of them!
I also started to work on my Reaver Titan this year (Legio Fureans) - she is currently shelved 'till FW releases rules for 30k Skitarii though.
Last but not least - my Khorne Daemons. I'm really happy how they turned out, with An'ggrath being last years' final hobby project :)
And now - here is a list of things I'm looking forward to do 2016 - I probably won't finish all of this, but I have sorted it into three big chunks - The Shadow Crusade, The Knights of House Vyronii and the Orkimus Mekanikum - I aim to work on one of these at a time, with some one-off models between my projects! Oh, and I'm also looking forward to a new army release this year, but more to that in the future ;)
The Shadow Crusade - Betrayal at Calth
I really want to start with my Shadow Crusade/Calth themed armies - Ultramarines, Word Bearers and more Daemons. Samus will be the first model I'll paint this year, and I want to finish the components from one Betrayal at Calth set to play the game propperly with my new Love! Last but not least - my Zone Mortalis board also wants to see some paint this year :P
- 1500 points of Word Bearers
- 1500 points of Ultramarines
- Zone Mortalis Board
- More Daemons - the start of my Slaanesh and Tzeentch forces, aswell as some more Khorne stuff!
The Knights of House Vyronii
Another army I'm looking forward to start this year are my Knights of House Vyronii - I already own three of them - a Cerastus Knight Atrapos, a Questoris Knight Megaera and a Questoris Knight Errant - and just wait for the release of their transfer sheets :)
The year of the Xenos
2016 is the "year of the Xenos" - there is some awesome stuff in the plans for some Xenos action all the year round, including some really unique models from King Fluff. My Xenos army will be a Mek-themed force I call the "Orkimus Mekanikum" - or in other words, the Ork's answer to the Mechanicum forces at Ullanor! I'm really looking forward to this little project, as I have ideas for some weird, awesome stuff (and alot of dreds and tankz!)
One off projects
- The Agents of the Officio Assassinorum
- A Davinite Lodge Priest
- Navigator, Fleet Master, Astropath
Hope you enjoyed my first post this year, thanks for reading :)
