Looking back at 2012 and the future

So another year has soon went by and an quite eventful year in hobby as well. With an new edition of Wh40k, a new edition for LOTR...ehm I mean The Hobbit and two Army books and one 40k Codex. Among them my main army The Empire. I wont go into details about this though, you know what has been released this year so I will focus on myself and what I have accomplished in the hobby this past year.

The main focus when It comes to painting this year was the revival of my Empire army which I started to repaint in the beginning of the year. I continued to paint it up and also add new things when the new Army Book arrived, and now near the end of this year the army actually starts to look like an army. I have also done some side projects like WoC, Wh40k, Zombies and more but mainly I have stayed focused on getting the Empire army finished (more of  less, the whole army will probably never be finished).

This is the things I have painted this year:

40 Halberdiers
17 Greatswords
4 Artillery pieces
1 Bsb on foot
5 Demigryph Knights
1 War Altar of Morr
1 General on a Griffon
1 Engineer
1 Black Rose Knight
1 Captain on a peg.

40 Swordsmen
10 Crossbowmen
1 Cannon
3 Knights
5 Archers

Orcs & Goblins
7 Black Orcs
10 Nightgoblins

Warriors of Chaos
4 Warriors of Tzeentch
6 Khorne Marauders
4 Warhaunds
1 Hellcannon

Vampire Counts
20 Zombies

5 Space Marines

2 Terminators

I have never had as little hobby time as I have had this year, but strange thing is that I think I have never had an as productive year as this one. This is probably because of the little time I have and want to make most of it, and also I think this blog has helped me a lot to stay motivated with all the nice comments I get. So thank you for that. 

What about the future then? Well, I'm still going strong when it comes to the hobby and I'm still highly motivated. So hopefully I can even topple this year and paint up even more stuff in the coming year. And the next year I think I will paint more different stuff even if the main focus will stay with the Empire where I want to paint up the Celestial Hurricanum, more Demi chickens, more Knights, some characters and hopefully my Carmine Dragon. I also want to focus more on my WoC army and try to finish some more units, and I will also revive my Guardians of the Covenant again and buy some of the new shiny Dark Angel stuff when it arrives, I will probably dabble more into 40k as well as I also want to finish some more stuff for my Minotaurs.

So that's all for this year looking forward the next one and I hope you all will have a great and happy new year.

  3. Well done, may I suggest adding up the points of all your miniatures you painted in 2012 then divide by 365 to see how many points per day you painted.
    Happy 2013!

  4. Thank you for the idea Kiour I even made an Painting Challege post with all the points, so go and see that thread about it.
