Cadian Shock 2022 Review

A breakdown of my hobby in 2022...


Approximate Reading Time: 5 minutes

Back at the start of 2021, I completed my Cadian Shock Review 2021, and 2021 was a bit of a mad year for us all. Let us see what 2022 had in store and see if I faired any better hobby-wise than last year.

Completed Models in 2022

A total of 96 models. That is about 2,180~ pts of Cadians plus a Necromunda Gang of 10 models.

Model counts from all my Year in Review articles;

A significant rise on 2021’s count and possibly a personal record!

2022 Hobby Goals

  • Complete the GorgonΒ – Done!
  • Complete the Crassus
  • Paint all my BullgrynsDone!
  • Complete my Valhallan Regiment – 60+ infantry and 6 Chimeras
  • Try to do 10 Cadian Infantry between other projects to grind through those – Done; I painted 25 Cadian infantry models!

Pile of Shame/Potential

Well, some successes on what I wanted to achieve this year with my Hobby Goals, and some not so successful. Here is what I have left on theΒ Pile of Potential.

Of course, I should do the new models from the Cadia Box as soon as possible. Today, at the time of writing, is the day before I get the new Cadian Box. I am still deciding whether I want to use the new Cadian Infantry models. Maybe I will do them, but there does not seem to be enough difference in infantry units to warrant doing them. They could be good as Veterans, but there are no Veterans in the new Codex or Conscripts. One thought was to use the current models as Conscripts and the new models as regular infantry – but that seems impossible now too.

The Valhallans will undoubtedly get some love in 2023 now that we can run mixed regiments in 40K. I was a bit unsure about doing that in the Nephilim book. But now it seems it is back on the table, so I want to get those done. 60 Valhallans in 6 Chimeras will be a fantastic sight, and it has been a long time coming… I started my Valhallans in April 2019.

The Crassus I would like to do in 2023, too, it is so cool, and I have had it for a while now. It should be quick to do, spray, tape, wash, detail, pigments, and done! Right?!
