Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

Epic Inventory Backlash

After collecting various 6mm Epic 40K miniatures for some years it's time for a descent inventory.

It took me one long evening to unpack many boxes and ziplock bags. I even discovered some unopened blisters bought years ago. The desk was covered in Imperial troops: Adeptus Mechanicus, Imperial Guard and Titan Legions.

Imperial Armour

The image above shows a portion of the Imperial Armour. In the background are miniatures from MechWarrior that I can use as Leviathans etc...
My plan was to create themed detachments while still aiming for a rounded amount of points. Designing (3rd edition) detachements like this allows me to select miniatures pretty fast when playing another battle.

Knights and Imperial Guard

When I discovered that there were a lot of Knights and Robots in my collection, I decided to start me an Adeptus Mechanicus army, based on the army list that appeared in Firepower Magazine. I ended up with around 1600 points AM and an uncountable amount of points for the IG.

And after all this detachment-building, writing drafts, calculating totals in Excel and putting parts of armies on every empty spot in my room that I could find... I GOT FED UP. Seriously. I had enough. Pleasure overload. Inventory blues.
So I repacked everything and started planning to paint an overseeable amount of miniatures. A smaller amount. ONE detachment of Tau. It's better to focus on one small portion of a collection than to unpack it all. Because I'm fighting against a problem that many other players face: UNPAINTED miniatures.

There should be a microbadge for this: "Owner of Too Many Unpainted Miniatures".
