Happy New Year everyone!
2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year hobby wise. As anyone who knows me will tell you, although I've built and played just about every army that GW has ever produced in my 15 years in the hobby, the army that will always stand out as my favorite (in either WHFB or 40k) is the Tyranids.
Something about this absolutely alien force, with its unique army dynamic, extremely cool organic aesthetic, and the sci-fi horror fluff revolving around the galaxies total destruction at their cold, gribbly hands, just draws me in every time the codex gets a reboot.
And so, with the new Tyranid book on the horizon for next weekend, I've decided to undertake an amazing hobby challenge for the year of 2014. I will be building my old hive fleet, Hive Fleet Tempestus, from 0-13,500 points throughout the course of the year.
I'll be sticking to a lose framework of 1000 points per month (with January's alotment being 2,000 so I have a workable "standard force" while I build up the rest of the swarm). Once the book drops in January, I'll have an explicit outline of which models will be added for each month of the year...including numerous Forge World purchases towards the summer months.
Stay tuned all, and welcome to my progress blog!
