while I really enjoy the gaming, I find most of my enjoyment comes from vegging out while painting.

So I finished my first Warhammer Fantasy model. I'll take photos tomorrow but I think it's one of my favorite things I've painted so far.

Well the transparent pipe sticking out of its chest looks silly. Why did you put that on it? :mrgreen:

le sigh... I wonder if I'll ever get a full army painted? Marines half done. A ton of Eldar still unassembled and some still waiting paint. Now starting an Imperial Guard force. And on top of that, I may be getting roped into Warhammer Fantasy. At least I have a ton of skeletons already, about half painted up. Wrong base sizes, but that can be fixed. It started out as a 1st edition Fantasy undead army, then got pressed into service as part of a Clan War (Legend of the Five Rings wargame) Shadowlands army. Now I'm taking the skeletons from that force and turning them into a party Cathay undead force using the Tomb Kings army book.

Does anyone have any idea of a typical game size in Fantasy? Like in 40K games are often played around the 1500-2000 point range, at least around here. I have about 1300 points of skeletons before magic items and stuff, according to Army Builder. I'm wondering if that's enough, or if I would need to expand. I'm also wondering if I should pick up the starter box set.

My co-worker informs me 2k-2.5k is pretty standard for Fantasy so you'd probably want to expand. Sounds like you have all your basic troop stuff is taken care of so fun stuff is all you need.

mmmm. Well I have a good amount of your basic sword and spear foot troops. I only have 10 archers and 10 riders though, so I probably need more of those. That's still an investment though, and if I get stuff from the Tomb Kings line, my army will look weirdly eclectic. I have skeletons in samurai armor and in chain/platemail already, as well as bare  naked bones. Some of the special Tomb King units look cool, but do I want to add Egyptian style to that mix?

Honestly, I would probably rather run some variety of Elf, Skaven or Chaos in this league I may be getting involved in. I picked Tomb Kings because I already had the skeletons, and I can't use my archers or catapult in a Vampire Count army. More to think on... Thank you for the information.

So I thought I couldn't talk about it before, but there's photos and shit up in some place. I want this. I must have it. I've seen it in person and holy fuck. It's fucking HUGE. It's the size of a truck. It's going to need it's own CUSTOM case and foam. I am in love with this model.

Follow up:

I am really sad Sabol doesn't have Motor Pool transports in stock right now, because I really, really need one, to the point of this being a bit annoying, because they haven't had stock for a while now. I'd say fuck it and get my shit from those sexy people at KR... but I really like Sabol for the big duffles.

I'd also like to lodge a complaint about one of our own minis.



So I got this box, and so far it's fucking awesome. I can't WAIT to paint the female paladin, she's got so much freaking detail I cannot DEAL with it fully. both forms of Lich are epic, the Cleric... looks like he's getting gob smacked but still looks pretty damn good over all, and then there's the Fighter. Not just a fighter THE Fighter. Right down to the gorram winged helmet, however I cannot for the fucking life of me figure out where his goddamn cape is supposed to attach.

I picked up a little something Friday afternoon:
WARHAMMER. The Game of Fantasy Battles. edition?
95%+ complete with the box.
from what I've found googling, it's worth $50 - $75

at the same time, I found TWO Warhammer 40K Imperial Guard Battle Force, in their boxes.
also 95%+ complete with the boxes, but the boxes are beaten up bad.
they're worth $50 -$60 each.

So I guess the question is...
Do I finish the assembly and painting of all the figures?
Or do I leave them 'as is'
which would be worth more to y'all?
either way, i'll be making my money back...






considering I only spent $4 on each box.

I would totally take those off your hands for $4 each.. You know. Just so you can get your money back. I'd hate to think it was wasted....

Unless you are willing to invest the time or money for a high quality paint job, I would sell them as is. Unless someone is looking for a pre-built and painted force, then unassembled miniatures are more valued, because then the buyer can put them together the way they want, or use them as parts.

As a serious inquiry though, which models exactly are in each set, and how much are you looking for? I am putting together High Elf and Imperial Guard armies, and always looking for deals.

the WarHammer Fantasy Battles game has the Late Mideval style pikemen, musketeers and cannoneers vs. archer and swordz orcs.

the Imperial Guard Battle Force is Catachans. combined, the two boxes are:
48 infantry (8 of which are METAL hero Catachans)
3 Sentinels
1 Chimera APC
1 LeMan Russ Tank
and a single sprue of Eldar

Oooh. That's quite a mix. Gotta love the Rambos. Some of that stuff is stuff I've never seen in a Battle Force box... my IG are mostly done and I don't need either of the fantasy pieces so I'll give you first bite Ali.

Hmmm... I'm not sure how that would help. I run High Elves and Vampire Counts in fantasy, so that box set wouldn't help me out. And my Imperial Guard are Cadians. I actually just traded away the two squads of Catachan I had with them. The Sentinels, Chimera and Leman Russ I do need. I'm not sure if that makes up one box, or if the vehicles are split between the two. But if you are willing to part out the vehicles I am interested in them.

Grouping the infantry up, and just selling the vehicles to Neko you should still see a return Groggy.

I'd rather not break up the box sets.  Even with rashed boxes, I'd think they would be worth more if complete.

*unless you're willing to throw stupid money for the vehicles.*

I'll take offers via PM.

Fuck I really need to start figuring out some more hobby storage stuff... even after I get my hands on my Sabol Motorpool (and I'm strongly considering giving up the ghost and getting a division transport, which is basically fucking luggage) it's already almost completely filled from a few 4" trays (My titans and my Land Raider), my 3" trays (Titan alt weapon arms, one tray of rhinos (2x Sisters, 2x SM) in addition to all that... I have my Gryphon and my squadron of high elf cav, various "desk top" pieces, a star of mechs, a bunch more sisters of battle infantry and my Penitent Engine, which is being kicked out of the main Sisters case to make room for my second Exorcist... then finally I have my German and British Guards armies for Flames that are going to need homes. Thankfully I can probably do those last two in a single KR multicase if any artillery I get shares space with my Guards Tankovy...

All of this is discounting the D&D Dragon, but he's going to need his own hard shell case filled with foam.

I need a hobby shed. I need a house first so I have somewhere to put the shed but fucking hell >.>;

That's always the problem... Storage and transport. I'm making due with some plastic tubs filled with sabol foam right now. But I really need something for my tanks. I may get some strips of card to divide up some of these empty GW boxes I have laying around. Since they're nice and regular sizes going for foam trays is probably overkill. My fantasy Vampire Counts army is currently occupying some Clan War boxes, but I don't have any room to expand. And with High Elves coming next month... oi....

99% of the time, I take only what I need for that day's game: usually a battalion or less.

the last time I transported all of my painted minis it took me 3 of the heavy duty 18 gallon plastic totes.

..and a hand truck.

I shudder to think what it would take to move ALL of it.

they're up with my brother in main, still unfinished. I was such an amateur painter back then.  Man I wish I was back in the hobby but money has to go to other stuff like food and shelter...

haha I really wish I could finish them and try some new techniques.  I'd love to put the Tau back together again and finish the army I started.  Fire warriors as clone troopers, stealth squads as commandos, and pathfinders as ARC troopers (would love to paint a fish like their transport in the gif above!).  Oh and the one with the red shoulder pad is the shas'ui and I converted his pulse rifle to have a marker light using the sprues that connect the modle bits together and filing it down to make it look like a scope.  Red added on it because its a targeting laser.

From what I have seen of modern tau armies its all about the suits now.  :-\

here were all my Shas'ui


here is some kroot back when I was experimenting with inks




My brother played Blood Angels and I helped paint some guys.  he was most impress with these that I painted at the time:








I would love to strip the paint and try it all over again now that I understand layers and inks and stuff.

@GM: Awe man, I'd love to put together a Bret army and play you if I could.  Be like viking invasion of france type dealy...but with warhammer and magics.

I have a single TAU Battlesuit fresh in the box and a box of TAU XV 25 Stealth team which is complete, but I've had open to look at.  I'm more than happy to sell these.  New retail is $80, but since these have been opened, I'm open to a fair offer.  PM me if interested.

So it's looking like 2 dozen odd assorted armored vehicles is about the limit of what this brand of spray paint can do...

So. Adepticon is pretty awesome, but fucking terrible on my wallet. I bought a unit's worth of Silver Helms and a classic metal prince to use as my High Helm, and a generic prince/hero character because he was cheap. $25, which isn't bad considering that unit alone is $40 or something new.

I did get a swag bag, no bits this time, but it did have a free miniature for I assume Heldorado, a mini version of the Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood type) rocking a big ass broadsword AND the con exclusive Arcadian female Color Sergeant, from Victoria mini's new line of sensibly dressed female "not IG".



Well I couldn't leave the color sergeant without a squad to back her up could I? and since Victoria's Arcadian females are being released for sale for the first time here at the con... well I couldn't resist. They are pricey no doubt, $50 for a 10 girl squad ($5/mini) is Forge World pricing, the good news is the sculpts are flawless, even my coworker who's a complete Forge World whore is impressed with the quality. Also, if $50 means people get the hint that there is a no shit market for female minis that don't dress like exotic prostitutes, then so be it.

I may have also located some of the Sisters of Battle models I've been trying to acquire for a dog's age. Namely two heavy Flame Sisters, two Melta sisters and some more Sister Superiors.

very, very nice.

could easily be used in other game systems.

any of those would work well with the player group I'm setting up.

Close. Though I was going for more "cute" and less "angry demanding" :)

Victoria mini's new line of sensibly dressed female "not IG".
And those are 28mm minis? You could have told me they were 54mm and I'd have believed it. And the poses look like the way someone might actually move or stand. Is it me, or do they look like a futuristic version of the Marines from "Full Metal Jacket"?

Edit: Even in the grim darkness of the far future, it seems there will still be bloody Australians!  :lol:

look more like classic Cadians to me...who were probably based on the Colonial Marines from Aliens....who in turn were based off Vietnam WAR US soldiers.
