So my 2022 goal is to paint 365 PL worth of Warhammer 40k models for a single faction. Readers may note that I’ve dabbled with Drukhari and with Genestealer Cults already, and that I do have a sizable Night Lords Chaos force along with Khorne Daemons that I could work on. But I’m truly feeling the call of the Necrons. So I’m committing (a bit late into 2022) to painting 365 brand new Power Level of Necrons this year. I already have 100 PL (exactly, hah) of Necrons forces painted, so by end of year I should have a pretty Apocalyptic-size force if I stick to my progress. I may try to push to 500 PL total.
So every good goal needs a bit of inspiration and tracking, so here’s a listing of what I’m hoping to add to my force to try and reach the goals for the year.
As I go, I’ll occasionally update this master list–both marking units that I’ve completed and painted with black text instead of red, and adding any new units as I get a sense of what gets me to 365 points for the year and beyond. This set of ambition units is almost 600 PL by-the-way, so plenty enough to get to the finish line and beyond. This is just new stuff for 2022, not the 100 PL I’ve already got finished. Should make for a heck of an apocalyptic force, and the cover photo for this post is appropriate: as I’ve got long-term plots of a super-huge game against my friend Ryan’s burgeoning T’au Empire force (painted even in the Vior’la color scheme, no less). As an extra bonus I’ll also be painting up some Necron planes for Aeronautica Imperialis as well.
