Vampire Counts - Terrorgheist / Updated Hobby Road Map

I'm making some progress on my Vampire Counts. Not as much as I would have liked, but some progress.

I painted this guy up over a few days and I'm happy with how he came out. I love his rules and I think the model is ace. A lucky eBay find made him really cheap, too, so I couldn't be happier.

I saw a guy at the Colonial base his Terrorgheist on some of the Garden of Morr bits and I couldn't help but steal that idea. He's already a big model and will never be obscured so I just embraced that and did the same. Plus, I now have lots of leftover pieces from the Garden of Morr to use as unit fillers for zombies.
On the whole I'm happy with how he came out. I got a little sloppy in some areas but I think the model is solid and will look good in my army.

Updated Hobby Road Map

One of the worst parts of my love for this hobby is my inability to stick to any one project. I seriously find something appealing about every army Games Workshop makes and for lots of other games and minis.

Some new things and ideas have come up and I thought I should update my plans for the year. I've been on a big fitness kick lately and one of the things that has helped me stick to it has been writing down my goals in a public place. It's been working for my diet and exercise routine so I hope it works for my hobby life as well.

Vampire Counts: Finish by the end of June
Dreadfleet: Finish by the end of June
Blood Angels: Assembled by July 15, paint to keep pace with Escalation League
Zombicide & Extras: Paint in time for Halloween game
Miscellaneous: Spend November and December on smaller projects such as Lord of the Rings, updating 'Nids, Space Hulk, and anything else I have in mind.

One project I would like to get to this year, and might try to squeeze in if I get ahead of schedule with my Vampire Counts, is to do an Empire army using Old Glory's Landsknechts. They're cheap and look good and I think I can bang out a big Empire army for $250 that would look really fun. Right now I'm thinking of doing a Tilean themed army, which would explain their different appearance from the GW plastics, and it would be fun to create some background for them as well.
