    Hello boys and girls and welcome to Let's Get Motivated - New Year's hobby resolution 2022

    I have been some of you putting out your hobby resolution for 2022.

    This thread is too get us motivated this year into finishing the projects that we have committed to in our resolution, the rules are fairly simple.

    At the start of the year post what your hobby resolution, it can be models/terrain/conversions of any game type. No pressure if you don't finish anything this is for motivation nothing else.

    Around the middle of the year post your progress, no images please, if you have want to share your progress with images, upload them into your blog and supply a link.

    Around the end of the year post your progress, again no images, if you have finished a piece upload the images into your blog and supply a link.

    The reason I don't want images in this thread is too get everyone that takes part views in their personal blog where the community can critique, etc.

    You don't have a paint blog? well get one started in this forum section.

    If you need advice etc. post here and the community will try and answer.

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone share their progress

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Seeing the result of last year's resolutions I will have a good think of what seems reasonable for this year ;)

    Grrr, Imrahil

    During the year I would like to at least:

    Finish Painting and Basing the models from Blackstone Fortress
    Build/Convert/Paint/Base the characters from my RPG group's Soulbound Campaign
    Build/Paint/Base at least 1K points of Stormcast Eternals
    Paint the numerous Underworlds Warbands I have now...including the Starblood Stalkers (actually painting Lizardmen!)

    I'm sure I will add more to this list... :p

    I failed miserably in pursuit of my 2021 painting resolution, so this year, I have a new approach!...

    Thanks for making this thread @Imrahil!

    So I made a goal sheet of hobby projects I want to get to this year from a format I saw online:

    Goals for 2022.png

    Obviously I intend to keep painting my Deathwatch that has kept me busy the last six months, but I want to branch out and work on some of the other projects I have had in my queue that I just didn't get to in 2021 :confused: (or 2020 :bag:).

    In list form:
    1. Deathwatch- got some aggressors and characters on my table currently, and I want to get at least one full Spectrus kill team done by the end of the year
    2. Necromunda- I have two gangs (Van Saar and Cawdormechanicus) that are all assembled but are not completely painted! This is the year!
    3. Il Kaithe- got some great Eldar models ready to paint, I want to do at least one of the tanks and a unit of infantry this year
    4. Skywings- I loved the model I painted this year and bought two more I want to paint before years end
    5. Platypus- got three Platypus people in my to-do box
    6. Blitzbowl- between completing the stadium and maybe another team
    7. Blood and Plunder- I have a box of beautiful Native American models I want to complete, and maybe some boats for them too
    8. Zombicide Black Plague- would LOVE to do this project for Halloween this year
    9. Grail Chapel- something I want to build for my Bretonnians.

    Ultimately at the end of this year, the goal is to put at least one check-mark in each box at minimum for a single model painted, and hopefully the whole project can be done too!

    Let's see what I can cook up this year. Should be able to complete the following:
    • Finish painting my Stormboyz and 3 additional Orc Big 'Uns that I started last year alongside my Squig Hoppers (which I did manage to finish before the year was up)
    • Build and paint all the models in my Beastman Start Collecting Box (started this last year by building the Bray-Shaman and Bestigors, but have to paint them and complete the Ungors and Ghorgon/Cygor as well)
    • Paint the Necron models I got in the two issues of Imperium that I bought last year, alongside building and painting any that I get in Imperium this year
    • Carry on with my ongoing SPQR projects
    • Paint a unit of High Elf archers
    • Fix and paint some second-hand Chaos Space Marines I bought last year
    • Play games - hopefully at least one for every game system I play (SPQR, The Kingdom is Ours, Fantasy, 40K and Middle-Earth)
    Additional bonus projects I may or may not have time for:
    • Oathmark Dwarf Heavy Infantry I'll be using for Khazad Guard, Iron Guard and characters in my Khazad Dum army
    • Plague Monks
    • Some more Lothern Sea Guard I bought a while back (given the ones I painted before almost drove me mad with all the details, expect a fair amount of despondent raving, though there will be fewer this time)
    • Knights of Rivendell (@Imrahil let the challenge begin!)

    I want to paint at least 1000 points of my Chaos Dwarfs.

    I've NEVER done anything even remotely close to this, so will be a challenge given that I'm a very slow painter.

    Time to set a yearly goal for myself:

    - complete all models of the Easterling commision from my brother.
    - complete at least 2 scenery pieces(buildings)
    - try again to finish painting my Orruk army. I have suddenly found some new motivation to work on them:angelic:
    - paint something Seraphon

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Okay, that's not easy at all. For the time being, I set myself three goals that are reasonably realistic. I can always add these later if a miracle (of a positive kind) happens...
    1. Paint some warhammer malignant sorcery miniatures
    2. Complete my ancient Chaos All-Stars Blood Bowl Team.
    3. Continue to participate in the monthly Let's Get Motivated to get ahead in the hobby.

    We have crossed the half year mark a couple of weeks ago, so time to give an update on the progress for these goals:

    - complete all models of the Easterling commision from my brother
    This has turned in to an ongoing adventure, painting along the growing Battle Companies Campaign

    - complete at least 2 scenery pieces(buildings)
    I have achieved almost threequarters of this: I build and painted 1 building and build some more city scenery to be painted.

    - try again to finish painting my Orruk army. I have suddenly found some new motivation to work on them:angelic:
    So good of a start.... I have put more paint on the Gor-Gruntaz and Megaboss, but they are nowhere completion :oops:

    - paint something Seraphon
    This has started somewhat, a few base layers are done, but it will need some more love. This is the model I want to have done this year.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    If I finish my Bull Centaurs and Taur-ruk then I'll be about 450 points done, so would be pretty good. Outlook for the rest of the year looks pretty bleak on painting time so we'll see how we do.

    [LoR starts to sweat slight on the "only painted 51 minis this year" bit, as he remembers the 17 he has done so far...]

    Well I got on board a escalation league for 40K

    so in all so far I have build and paint over 2500 points!!

    For the rest of the year I’ll aim at building a Salamanders Horus Heresy army!!

    would love to give a bit of love toward my lizardmen!!! So I’ll keep that in mind as well perhaps paint enough for a warcry game!!

    Holy Crap! Well done!

    [LoR stares forlornly at the models he has painted which are nowhere near 2500 points...]
