It’s the end of the month and we are 50% of the way through the year now so let’s see where I am in terms of my hobby resolutions.

The complete 1750 points of 40k stuff is going to be reassessed once 9th edition drops but based on what I have seen thus far, that might be getting upped to 2000 points.

And with the Generals Handbook landing next month I will also have to reassess the Stormcast Eternals list.

But this month I have a huge success and have completed the first resolution to 100%!!!

Paint 867 Models – 88%

I have now painted 773 models, so just over 100 off my target!!!

This month I painted a few more Space Wolves, a few Grey Hunters Pack Leaders, a Repulsor and an Iron Priest.

And I started my contribution to the podcasts show army, the Sons of Horus.

A big jump in the number is down to two Chainrasp Hordes that were 40 models strong each!

Finish Painting the Blood Ravens I Own on 1st January – 85% Complete

For the Blood Ravens I painted all five of my Chaplains, a 10 man Intercessor Squad, a Primaris and Firstborn Ancient, a squad of Aggressors and two Repulsors, although only one of those contributes to the resolution.–/?igshid=of50zi5dpl4e

So right now I have 7 units left to do in order to fulfil this resolution.

Finish the Death Guard – 83.33% Complete

No progress made in these this month.

Complete 2000 Points of Stormcast Eternals – 67%

So last month I decided to make it a 2000 point list I have to paint, so I have formed a list consisting of stuff I have painted and stuff that’s on the painting queue, and here it is:-

+ Leader [580pts] +

Knight-Incantor [140pts]

Knight-Venator [120pts]

Lord-Aquilor [180pts]: General

Lord-Ordinator [140pts]: Astral Hammers

+ Artillery [220pts] +

Celestar Ballista [110pts]

Celestar Ballista [110pts]

+ Battleline [330pts] +

Vanguard-Hunters [110pts]: 5 Vanguard-Hunters [110pts], Astral Compass, Storm Sabre

Vanguard-Hunters [110pts]: 5 Vanguard-Hunters [110pts], Astral Compass, Shock Handaxe

Vanguard-Hunters [110pts]: 5 Vanguard-Hunters [110pts], Astral Compass, Storm Sabre

+ Other [830pts] +

Aetherwings [50pts]: 3 Aetherwings [50pts]

Evocators [220pts]: 5 Evocators [220pts], 5x Tempest Blade and Stormstave

Prosecutors [90pts]: 3 Prosecutors [90pts], Paired Celestial Hammers

Retributors [200pts]: 5 Retributors [200pts]

Sequitors [130pts]: 5 Sequitors [130pts], 2x Stormsmite Greatmace, Stormsmite Greatmace (Sequitor-Prime), Stormsmite Maul and Soulshield

Vanguard-Raptors with Hurricane Crossbows [140pts]: 3 Vanguard-Raptors with Hurricane Crossbows [140pts]

+ Malign Sorcery [40pts] +

Endless Spell: Celestian Vortex [40pts]

So far from this list I have completed the Knight Incantor, Knight-Venator, Lord Ordinator, Celestar Ballistas, one unit of Vanguard Hunters, the Prosecutors, Sequitors, Aetherwings and Vanguard Raptors, which is 1340 points.

So I started off the month by painting the Knight-Heraldor, Knight-Vexillor and Retributors which completes the original Age of Sigmar strater set, took me just under 5 years but we got there in the end.

I then got the Sequitors from Soul Ward painting and have left to do from that set just the Evocators and the Castigators.

Paint 1750 Points of T’au – 5.7%

Following similar logic to the Stormcast Eternals I plan to paint up a list for the T’au, but I need to figure out what I have first before I can do that.

In the meantime I got off the starting block with two Ethereals on Hover Drones.

Rebase the Blood Ravens – Completed

I started by rebasing the remaining Tactical Squad and the Captain, managing to cut my finger doing so, but I got those done.

Then later in the same week I rebased the last unit that needs doing, an Assault Squad.

And thus I complete the first of my resolutions, all my Blood Ravens which are playable are now on the modern day sized base.

I do have some other Blood Ravens stuff that needs stripping and repainting, but I plan to tackle those next year and fixing them up will probably be a resolution for 2021, and they will be rebased at that point.

Other Resolutions

  • Complete 1750 Points of Orks
  • Rebase the Orks
  • Paint Mortarion for Everchosen

Nowt has happened with these this month, but Mortarion is on my long term plan even though there probably won’t be an Everchosen this year and will hopefully be at least started next month.

So how what does my painting plan look like right now, well it looks a bit like this.

I will also be doing my 24 hours of painting challenge next month, and if you want to donate you can do so here.
