This post is kind of a personal ramble. I’ve had a really good look at my collection and decided I have a hobby problem. Finally all the years of plastic crack has drained my bank a/c, filled every nook and cranny in the garage and left me with a mountain of painting.
I had a long weekend so it was time to take stock. Deep breath, I can’t really buy more Malifaux until I’ve cleared out some stuff, assembled all my boxed Malifaux models and done a lot more painting. I also need to sell off my old Warhammer Fantasy and 40 Stuff. I can’t see when I’ll need a Grey Knight army any more, or 6 Inquisitorial Chimeras with Forge World decals. I won’t ever dust off the Sisters of Battle or the Chaos “Naughty Marines.” I don’t know if Wood Elves will even exist in the latest Warhammer Fantasy Reboot.
I actually have a lot of painted Malifaux models, but they are spread across a lot of crews meaning I rarely field a painted crew.
So I have come up with a plan.
- I won’t buy any more Malifaux until I’ve cleared my backlog of assembling and painting.
- I will create a excel spreadsheet and track my painting.
- I will assemble and undercoat every Malifaux model I own.
- I will completely paint all my Ten Thunders (whether straight TT, or Dual Faction).
- Once the TT’s are done, I’ll move on to my Outcasts, then my Ressers.
So to kick off I’ve spent a weekend, including my day off whilst the wife was away and the kids were at school, assembling models. I’m quite pleased. I’ve made a massive leap forward and assembled
3 Hollow Waifs
2 Beckoners (so at some stage I’ll need to buy Dark Debts!)
2 Mindless Zombies
A steam trunk (although by the end I wanted to squash the little f£$%er).
That leaves me The University of Transmortis, 3 Mindless Zombies, 3 Abominations and an old metal McMourning to assemble.
I spent some time with a spray can and a stick, and base coated
3 Hollow Waifs
1 Necro punk
1 Convict Gunslinger
I’ll do the long planned conversion on Toshiro to give him a nice suit of Armour and base coat him, Ototo and the Dawn Serpent.
Gosh that’s a lot of stuff to paint right there! Add to that are the various models that are already assembled and base coated or half painted.
I’m tempted to box a load of stuff so that my painting stays concentrated on the first set of models. I have tons of semi painted models.
Rumbling in the background is a half painted team of Butchers and an entire SAGA Vikings army.
I guess I should try Ebaying the old GW stuff. Is there even a market for it or shall I chuck my 3000pts of Sisters of Battle in the bin?
