Last hobby I will be able to manage in Dec before time gets sucked up on family holiday activities 😉 This is how my end of year hobby karma is looking:
I’ve started to read through through Imperial Armour 9 & 10: The Badab War which was a mistake as it lead me to picking up a box of standard Mark VII Tactical Marines so I can kit bash a few gun pigs to do some test colour schemes. Astral Claws would be the classical choice on the Secessionist side, but I do find the Minotaurs and Carcharadons on the Loyalist side appealing too.
Given Away (+35)
The annual HATE Club charity raffle were looking for donations, so I sorted through the hobby cupboard of abandoned projects to donate 35 random Deadzone/Warpath and Dreadball figures that I have accepted I am never going to get around to doing anything with.
In searching through the hobby cupboard for donations, I found a couple of unopened GW boxes which I’m never likely to get around to doing anything with. This led me to flogging off an old box of GW Forsaken to another obliging HATE Clubber.
I’ve finished the Shadow Spear and Blackstone Fortress Back Legion figures and made a start on my Warcy set:
- 2 x Obliterators
- Master of Posession
- 2 x Greater Posssessed
- Obsidius Mallex, Chaos Lord
- 6 x Warcry Raptoryx (aka ‘Chaos Turkeys’)
That makes a net positive hobby karma of +48 for the month and then overall for the year my final figure is +270 (331 painted; 79 sold; 120 given away and 260 new figures bought). Next year I’m going to aim to buy less and definitely play more games.
