It turns out I need a new project.
It also turns out I have almost 800 miniatures, mostly unpainted, from 28mm Games Workshop and Mantic models, down to 15mm Flames of War. There’s a handful of D&D characters, Necromunda and Bloodbowls miniature too.
Naturally I want to now get some 20mm WWII miniatures, for use in Battlegroup with a friend.
However, as rare as it is for a war-gamer to admit, I need to:
- Make room for new miniatures,
- Paint some existing miniatures,
- Practice more painting,
So first things first, I need to work out how large the backlog is.
Currently I’ve thrown the majority of these miniatures into a spreadhseet, that way I can prioritse and see what I have to work on.
I need to split them out further, but at the moment it stands at
284 models, mostly WWII minis, a significant percentage of which are tanks.
291 models; a heavy mix of tanks and other large vehicles.
Not included however, are
- Approximately 100-200 Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum,
- Approximately 50 Necrons,
- Approximately 50 Tau
So the challenge I’m imposing on myself, is to battle on and actually paint some minis!
I’m hoping to post photos of new painted pieces as I go.
Stay tuned and visit the challenge gallery 🙂
