[GS Review] - April

So, how is the 2016 campaign going? April has been a big month. Big project, big spending, big increase in figures bought.

The overview, with new style cumulative graphing:

Fancy, eh?

The pictures:

The details:

  • £42 on various terrain building bits (flock, paint, etc.)
  • £47 on a 2nd edition Orc Blood Bowl team (What can I say? I'm weak)

1/4 goals completed.

CORE goals
  • finish painting a 24 point Undead warband
  • finish painting a 24 point Chaos Evil warband
  • paint a 24 point Dwarf warband
  • finish painting a 24 point Bretonnian Chivalric human warband
  • paint a 24 point Orc and goblin warband
  • finish my giant (finally!)
  • paint a zombie dragon (that'll be my Deadcember 2016 project, I hope)

2 major goals completed.

CORE goals
  • model and texture three 100cm by 50cm gaming boards
  • build some trees in scale (ish) with the figures (i.e 6-11 inches tall)
  • convert three chaos centaurs
  • model and texture a fourth gaming board
  • model and texture a fifth gaming board
  • gamify the toy castle I bought last year

No goals completed as originally stated, but I have played some games and am now keeping a total tally as well as considering my goals.

Dragon Rampant - 2
X-Wing - 1
Swords & Wizardry sessions - 8
Knights' Quest - 1
Blood Bowl - 1.5

CORE goals
  • play two games of Dragon Rampant with different forces
  • finish writing Knights' Quest
  • write an Oldhammer scenario involving Father Christmas (yes, seriously)
  • Play moar gamez!

Core goals are on target. I'm not sure I can claim they are completed unless I manage it for the whole year, but I'm going to colour them green anyway!

CORE goals
  • blog an average of one post every five days (i.e. six posts per month)
  • give a monthly update of how each of these goals are going
  • give a monthly update of how much I've painted, built, gamed, acquired, and spent
  • co-ordinate Deadcember 2016, along with a prize for the best contribution
  • take a group picture of what I paint each month using my lightbox
  • sort out proper galleries of my figures for this blog

How are you getting on with your goals for 2016?


  1. I weakened on the self same minis. I feel your pain.

    1. Yeah, and I was doing so well! I don't regret it, though ;)
