Complete some more warbands for Dragon Rampant - specifically Empire (about 30 figures), and Goblins (about 12 figures).  Also want to complete some support for my Space Orks.  If I get through that lot then I will start on an Imperial Guard platoon plus vehicles.  For scenery I want to complete a couple more 4Ground hovels, paint up a recent ebay win (GW tower), and paint up my Mantic Battlezones buildings.

I wont get ALL of this done in 2016  but some will get done.
Finish  Early Victorian Fiction armies.Still have about 120 Brits and 100 French to do.
Paint up Wargods of Olympus Athenians and Corinthians when they finally arrive.
Paint warbands for Mordheim.High,Wood and Dark Elves,Chaos Dwarves, a 3rd Orc warband, and some demons and monsters for NPC.
Paint all the figures I have for 40k Imperial Guard left.Mostly Necromunda figs,old old Rogue Trader Guardsmen,Rough riders,Ogryns and ratlings.
Paint a huge Tau army I still have in boxes
Paint a huge Eldar army still in boxes
Paint a second huge Space Marine army in boxes
Paint 400 Front Rank Russian Napoleonics
Paint 140 Front Rank Bavarian Naps
Paint 140 Wurtemburg Front Ranks Naps
Paint 100 British Front Rank Napoleonics
Paint about 500 old metal GW Empire figs to go with the thousand I have
That's a lot of painting but even though I paint fast it still wont all get done.
The only other thing would be find a premade or make myself a 28mm river system I actually like.

Hi everyone these are my Plans for 2016, what are yours aims/plans for the coming year.
Ha, found Your url while quoting. Couldn't see it in the post, very mysterious!

I want to do this:
- paint 6 embassadors for some friend's armies
- finish a playable table for Ronin
- a more uniform like buntai of about 10-15 ashigaru/samurai for Ronin as well
- paint at least 2 units with 20 WHFB-dwarfs each for a baint-battle
- paint 3 complete gangs for frostgrave
- monsters, markers and stuff alike
- finally finish my dwarfen gun-steamer-monitor-ship
- other hobby-things I don't dare to challenge the gods with, yet

best wishes

Still not buying miniatures, working my way through the lead/plastic mountain.

Painting 28mm Vikings & Saxons at the mo - The Last Kingdom inspired me to get them done.

Then painting my 15mm Anglo-Zulu War mini's for Colonial HOTT.

Then two boxes of odds & sods, Salute mini's etc, that aren't for projects, just an opportunity to focus on painting to a higher quality.

After that, I've a Punic Wars project for Basic Impetus or Warmaster using Hat 1/72 plastics.

If there's any of 2016 left I'll start on repainting my Horrorclix & Heroclix Batman figures.

Sounds like a lot of us are going to be extremely busy this year.  it will be interesting to return to this thread later on in the year and see how many  of us  have actually  achieved our goals.

Take care

plans for 2016 are

continue collecting Gringo40s Garibaldi range
collect more fantasy stuff for Dragon Rampant (LOTR and HOBBIT)
get more Infinity minis
learn how to play Lord of the Rings Card Game and maybe get the star wars one
get some more Boshin war bits

Thats it for the moment but I am sure I will feel the pull to purchase more Samurai stuff from Steel Fist

Thought so, as well. In another forum I made some sort of bet. If I will not finishe these, I will get the title unworty for 2017.
Will see, if that sort of pressure is enough. ^^

One thing at a time. Or, thanks to hobby butterfly, a handful of half-baked things at a time.

I'm interested in seeing 10mm Stalingrad, though.

I have set myself a target of:

Adding at least 100 items a month to my finished pile, 1200 in total for 2016.  I have the chart to complete next to my painting desk......  Cool

Avoid buying anything new.  Confused

Build a spray booth for better indoor airbrushing. This one has already started, but it will take a few weeks as I have to buy materials in bursts as I find the money. It's my #1 priority though, as I have projects that need it, and it's kinda been a loooong time coming anyway. Fortunately the the bit that accounts for 2/3 of the total expense all by itself (the fan/blower unit) has already been sorted, so it's all downhill from here financially.

Convert my tankless compressor to a tanked compressor. Mostly involves bypassing the internal auto switch in favor of an external aftermarket one. I have the replacement switch and a tank, so it's mostly a matter of fittings and wiring. Secondary priority after the booth, but much cheaper and simpler, so probably will get done first.

Improve workspace lighting. Another one that really needs doing and has needed doing for a long time. Expensive though, so will have to wait until the booth is done before I can dive into that.


Get my Strange Aeons teams painted. Design and build some terrain for them. Got some specific mental images/ideas for the terrain that I'm pretty excited about, but I need to figure out the larger "map" and how those things will fit into it.

Try to find a gaming group in my area. I go looking every year or so, but there just doesn't seem to really be anything here other than a couple GW-themed groups.


Various terrain ideas. Got a bunch of random cool mental images for stuff, just don't have a context/use for them to drive actual production.

Get some of the other figures from my (quite modest compared to others' here, apparently) lead bin done.

Typical. Spend all those years in satanic ritual, and now anyone I bite is just as immortal as I am. How's that for fair?

Oh Lord, where do I start?

Okay.  Well first off must be LPL10 - so thats a minimum of 55 figures to paint.  Try to paint figures that will be useful as well as good to paint. Try to finish in top half of LPL.

Finish off my 28mm WWII British (20-30 figures I think).

Paint those really lovely Discworld busts by Micro Art Studios that have been sitting on a shelf since Salute last year.

Oh, make sure that I've got the weekend off for Salute.

Build, detail and paint a representation of Granny Weatherwax's Cottage.

Find the Shepherd's Hut scene that I painted for last year's LPL (it has gone missing in the house move).

Paint a shedload of Zombies and survivors (Zombicide Kickstarters 1-3).

Build scenery for WWII games, more Old West scenery and more Pirate scenery.

Finish my Freebooter's Fate Island gaming boards (3 4'x2' boards to finish).

Fit out my gaming room with sufficient shelves, etc to store my figures and scenery tidily.

Paint the rest of my Dystopian Legions Britannians and buy and paint enough Antarcticans to make a full Platoon.

Dig out some of the figures in my "bought to paint but probably not game with" box and try to do them justice with paint.

And then there's .... oh, and I've got ... I mustn't forget ...

Now, what am I going to paint for LPL round 1?

I can already tell there'll be too little 2016 for all of my ambitions, but I'll certainly give it a go... Roll Eyes

In (dis)order of priority:

- Finally finish my game room (including new desk) and move all my stuff in there
- start building the new gaming table. (a very ambitious plan, that involves lots of moving parts and way too much hardwood...)
- Paint and finish many projects, including, but not limited to these works in progress:
   * My DIY chapter of Space Marines (yup) that has been in a WIP state since 2005
   * Infinity Pan Oceania force
   * X-Wing DIY faction and repainting all remaining ships
   * Dropzone Commander Scourge and Resistance armies
   * My Pulp RPG project (got to get that nazi helicopter finished!)
   * Gorkamorka warband
   * All Frostgrave monsters and at least one warband
   * Myth monsters and heroes
   * At least one Mercs Recon squad and some OpFor
   * The minis of my UFO project (underground- and moon base are aspired to, but not yet planned)
   * 2 lances of Battletech mechs in 1/100
   * Frostgrave terrain (snowy ruins)
   * Scifi terrain (grimdark)
   * Fantasy town
   * Dropzone Commander terrain (cityscape)
   * Scifi terrain (utopian)
- Attempt to avoid buying into more projects till I have at least finished one or two running ones

There are quite a few other stalled projects, but the ones listed are the ones highest on the list. I am under no illusion that I will be able to finish even half of the projects listed here, but one can hope, right... Wink
