Picked up the old metal Kharn the Betrayer model cheap from my FLGS discount bin. I still hope to pick up the nice plastic one at some point, but this will do for now. I'm also figuring on picking up my preordered Codex: T'au Empire today.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 11/22/19, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~13000 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1300 | Space Wolves: ~3400
Astra Militarum: ~500 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~800 | Sisters of Battle: ~200
Tau Empire: ~6600 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~2900 | Death Guard: ~2800 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~1900

I just got the GW five skeleton box? the cheap one, i think it's normally ten dollars but i got it for a buck out of a bargain bin.

They're chunky skellingtons, and i kind of love them, more than the modern ones. So much more. I have terrible taste. I want more.

Everyone give me your chunky happy skeletons.

I picked up the Fallen Frontiers starter from the Scale 75 US shop; it and the rest of the FF stuff they still have is on sale there right now in the Deal Bin. The base game was $60 instead of $100...

I know the game is going nowhere, but they are nice minis, and the game is alright, too. I know Scale 75 has a bad rep for the way they've handled some things on their Kickstarters, and so on. But I got good service from their shopify store this time.

Midlands, UK

I've been trying to reduce my spending while I work through some of my backlog. I tried to resist Eisenhorn, I really did. On release day, the FLGS I usually web order from went out of stock, GW's website went out of stock and I thought I was good. Then I checked the website of the FLGS near me - and saw that they still had several.

So the next day I just had to go in and buy him - and ended up picking up a Falcon and a Wave Serpent while I was there. Nice resolve to not buy anything, that.

In the few weeks since then I've managed to resist buying more models, though I did end up buying about 15 Vallejo paints in a store that had them on offer.

Indomitable Hellrider of Glorious Renown

Cozy cockpit of an Imperial Knight

After two months of moderate spending, I finally had an afternoon off on Friday to visit the FLGS and pick up stuff he was holding for me. White Dwarf January to March, codex: Adeptus Custodes and Chapter Approved 2017. I was also hoping to pick up Forgebane, but well.. his sales rep from GW is being difficult again, with no telling when he'll be getting them.

Also wound up visiting the local GW store and picking up a Sly Marbo and box of Black Library postcards, the stuff my FLGS can't or won't stock, so no sour looks.

Last night after a day of deliberation I decided to cave and order Forgebane, along with Titan's Bane, a box of Ogryn and 40mm bases directly from GW with express shipping, so it should be here on Wednesday.

That should be me, until the Imperial Knight codex and assorted kits go up for pre-order.

Be ash and cinder forevermore!

A can of Chaos Black and a couple of brushes. Technically, that doesn't violate my no new mini policy. Now that the weather is getting cooler I can start painting in my room again. Painting should not be a sweaty activity lol.

I actually spent some time on my Deathwatch flyer this afternoon, adding the final highlights. Nearly finished, finally!

I am drowning in miniatures!

Just painted up some of the items I'd bought recently 3 (commander) not-Tau Crisis Suits, 3 Panzer IV's, an e-bay Tau Devilfish and an Eldar War Walker from my SC Eldar box (I'm still too frightened to put the Wraithguard together, magnetized). At the least, my ENTIRE Tau army is (was) painted now!

To celebrate, I bought a SC Tau box, Forgebane, a Pac 38 & Pac 40, a King Tiger and a M8 Priest for Bolt Action, as well as half a dozen 1/100 tanks for Tanks! I guess I don't learn...

As an aside, my brother just got in Rising Sun (the store ordered a KS copy and he bought it), and it's a damn gorgeous game and helluva fun to boot.

Also, Black Reach should be releasing soon, been waiting on it since January. At least I don't have to paint it...

Eye of Terror

Recently purchased a lot of Grey Knights and Deathwatch stuff off eBay.

3 Dreadknights, 2 Strike Squads, Voldus, 2 Kill Teams, 2 Corvus Blackstars, and a Watchmaster.

This all stems from a lot I purchased a few months ago. I picked up a very incomplete Inquisition army and needed to fill in the gaps. Currently painting a ton of GK Terminators.

Over the weekend, I bought Rick Flag for my Brave and the Bold crew, so I now have everything I want for that crew, until new releases arrive. My other crew, the Central City Rogues (ran as a Mr Freeze crew led by Captain Cold), I only really want one more box (the Suicide Squad 3 pack) so Batman spending is down pretty low. Malifaux, on the other hand, are coming out with a few new models that I really want for my crews. The Easter special Viktorias are going to replace my current ones, as they're gorgeous, and upcoming releases contain Marlena Webster and the Freikorps Engineer, both of which are vital to some of my lists (Marlena for Viks and Misaki, Engineer for Von Schill)


I mainly play skirmish games, but am still fairly active with 40k. I play Arena Rex, Middle-Earth, Blood Bowl, Malifaux and The Other Side as well, but my main game is the Batman Miniatures Game.

I bought Dark Imperium and some easy to build Primaris. Painting has been a joy, having to choose one scheme has not. Would like to get some Tyranids and Scions as well as more Marines eventually. No idea what I'm going to do with these Death Guard though.

After spring break home with the kids, I lost all willpower available to me and went on a shopping spree.

Bought three warbands for Shadespire. I initially played the game and didn't care for it very much. I gave it another chance after Adepticon basically announced a second season. Turns out that it still isn't what I wanted, but I do actually really like what it is. Expectations can really cloud your opinions sometimes. With my wife also liking the game, it seemed like a perfect excuse to get some more warbands. I've been wanting to paint some Ironjawz and Fyreslayers since forever.

With Runewars all but dead, the prices are at rock bottom, and I couldn't resist picking up two Uthuk Y'llan army boxes, and a few unit boxes. The game may be dying, but I've got a new army to play and I'm looking forward to it. I also use the figures to keep me painting. Sometimes, I get intimidated by a fancy new model and I get stuck. It helps to have some mediocre models that don't require a big effort to paint, just to keep moving. I've also been using them for experimentation, and thanks to them, I now have a better appreciation of colored spray primers and wet palettes.

Finally, I got a really good deal on the Dark Souls board game. It got a lot of hate online, but the miniatures are neat and the deal was too tempting. Haven't finished a full run yet, but I really like the programmed movement and boss fights. My 9 year old daughter is a HUGE fan of Bloodborne (please don't confiscate my "Father of the Year" award), so I'm hoping I can convince her to play Dark Souls with me.

I also got some tomb swarms off ebay for my Tomb Kings. There was a shipping mistake as well and I ended up getting a free Tesseract Vault NIB. I tried to do the right thing and return it but shipping would've cost the guy more than the kit. I'm happy with the free model, but I think it's an ugly kit.

Bought a couple boxes of Empire archers and Warpriest for my Empire/GA:O force. Just need a Steam Tank, one of those big ol' war wagons and some more Greatswords and I can finally call the army done for now.

The Empire army is probably the most expensive in my collection. 20 Light infantry and a character for ~$70 after tax? Jeez. It's a good thing I find them to be some of my favorite GW miniatures!

And I just noticed Warlord have a 33% sale on core boxes. So three more Hessian battalions are on the way. I also picked up a Perry plastic British and Continental battalion box each as I've read they come with lots of flags - something I'm having issues with.

Those orders kind of equal the work done since Christmas. So back to square one.

My own copy of Forgebane just arrived as well. Unfortunately, due to my wacky work schedule this week, I won’t be able to get to it for a couple days. I am, however, looking forward to getting the Armigers together and see if I can get in a game with them and my night (And maybe some Dradnoughts and/or Sentinels to fill ou the remainder of the list).
