My hobby mojo evaporated recently. But I’m trying to refocus with some goals for 2022. So as is now becoming an annual tradition, here’s what I hope to achieve and share in the coming year.
I’ll update as the year goes on with progress as it happens.
3k+ Fauxtorian Guard
Continue to grow my Fauxtorian Guard beyond 3000 points of painted and table ready units. I’m talking Baneblades, tank squadrons, over 100 infantry, flyers, with a codex still a way off, now is the time to just add fun stuff and see what works when the new codex comes out.
EDIT: May 2022 The current army size of panted and table ready models is approaching 6500 points.
Build an Epic Scale Praetorian army
I have an ambition to re-create my army in 6mm Epic scale. And ultimately to create an Ork’s Drift stylke micro diorama.
EDIT: May 2022 Models and STLs have been gathered and first batches printed and painted.
Create a scenic display board for my 2k list
When I start going to events, I need a board to display 2000 points of my army on. Need is a strong word, but what better way is there to arrange your models for best painted?
Kill Team Octarius
Assemble and paint the Kill Team Octarius box. Seems simple, right? But i might want to headswap all the Kriegs with French style Kepis and Adrian helmets. And I need to actually read the rules and play some games. And think about the terrain. How do I want to paint it? Do I want to de-Ork it and make it more generic shanty town? Should I just make my own home hammer setup and ignore it?
Blackstone Fortress and Space Hulk (my way)
I have everything from the Blackstone Fortress and Space Hulk boxes except the minis (rules, cards, boards, tokens, dice).
So my goal is to digitally kitbash, print, and paint counts-as versions to create my own unique games. Something that can be a legacy game for my son and I to play in the coming years.
Compete in my first 40k 2k tournament
Pretty self explanatory. Play in a real event.
An event should be:
- 1500-2000 points
- GT style missions
- At least 3 games
EDIT: March 2022 This is on hold until later this year when Guard gets a new Codex. I’m going to hold off throwing myself into the shark tank until I feel ready.
Magnetise My Army
Create magnetic transport cases and magnetise my armies. Simple.
Edit: Jan 2022 All done! Took a few hours but really simple and easy to achieve. Although my fingers are now covered in super glue.
Get my own a Home Hammer Setup
Build a table extender, and complete a set of terrain. Play a game at home with my own awesome setup.
EDIT: June 2022 Making great progress here. The terrain is almost completed. Just need a mat and table extenders once that is done.
