- Goal 1: Paint all tank and vehicle models for FoW
I have a backlog and it seems be growing faster than I can paint it. I heard Fez on the Breakthrough Assault podcast mention that he feels like he buys models more when he is painting less. I definitely know the feeling. In 2015 I want to paint all of my tank and vehicle models for Flames of War. I have few enough that this should be achievable.
|Why did these take 6 months to finish? It's a mystery!|
- Goal 2: Post 4/month
This has been my goal for two years and I have yet to achieve it. I will endeavour to post regularly this year. I may try and post more game AARs and work in progress pictures to keep the momentum moving forward.
- Goal 3: Paint 10 models in a scale other than 15mm
I have plenty of different models sitting around unfinished. I feel like I could probably finish this in a few weeks if I just finished the half painted models in my collection. I'd like to finish some different Games Workshop models including a Daemon Prince and some more Then and Now posts. I'd also really like to paint an Infinity model.
|This model was fun. I should paint more like it.|
- Goal 4: "Finish" British Sherman Company
I have several unfinished models for this company before I would consider it complete (for the time being). I want to finish the last Sherman platoon, command Stuart, rifle platoon, and breaching group. Depending on how the new lists from Nachjager look I may also add a Comet platoon.
|Only another 20 or so models and this company could be totally complete.|
- Goal 5: Complete a Panzergrenadier Company
To do this I just need to paint another Panzergrenadier platoon and HQ along with their half-tracks. I think this is very achievable and will add a lot more flexibility to the companies I can field for Flames of War.
|They are lonely and need friends.|
- Goal 6: Buy under 20 total models
This is a challenging one but will help me to complete the other goals above. Less than 20 models purchased including infantry. 6mm models count as 1/5th of a model each.
|None shall pass!|
- Goal 7: Play 20 games and 2 tournaments
In 2015 I will play 20 games of Flames of War or other miniatures games and participate in two tournaments. With two fairly local tournaments this should be achievable.
