Spend enough time eating warpstone, next thing you know you don’t fit on your tiny little base anymore. Just ask Nagash.

As for the names/classes of my ships, I’d have to dig out the rulebook and look. I know the big guy is a battleship with the mark of nurgle, done with some greenstuff and a few spare nurglings.

Here's one of my two ancient beaky Space Marines. Love the detail on these old models, obviously a completely different style to the latest stuff, but great none the less.

OK, looking at the pics, It’s not the Terminus Est, but just a Despoiler class battleship with the mark of nurgle. I didn’t realize they made a custom nurgle ship; I just marked up a basic one. Close ups show a lack of the sculpted mark on the prow, or the spine along the top.




I could see how they could be confused from the blurry long shots.

And while I’m here, the imperial side:

I miss BFG. I already had Imperial, Space Marine, and Necron fleets (and my Ramilies). And then I went a little crazy during the great Specialist Games Sell Off and bought Eldar, Chaos, and AdMech fleets. I could probably sell it all on Ebay and get back about 3 times what I paid for it.

TGIF everyone.

BFG was not the only miniatures game to bring war to the inky depths of space. Silent Death, from I.C.E. was another quite good one. While it is more geared for fighter combat, it handled large fights well, and did include rules for capital ships. Here are some of them:


I’d drag out the swarms of fighters for a photoshoot, but they are packed away better then the big guys. Maybe next week.

Some of the new sculpted banners look awesome. No need for pesky freehand work. But GW used to offer another option: Sticker banners. Some were free with box sets, others were purchased separately (the chaos ones below were IIRC) While most of my Ultramarine ones are in use, here are some extras I have cluttering up the place:

Eldar support platforms. They’ve come a long way.


and either a lascannon or a distort cannon,


It's a D-cannon or "Distort cannon" (it had both names). The lascannon was different and used the same mount as the missile and scatter laser. the D-cannon and mount were different again.

Excellent stuff. Remember my own army of those models. Flogged them off probably about ten years ago...


... idiot.

In fact, I've sold off a lot of painted models over the years that I've later regretted. Though I wouldn't know where to start if I wanted to track them down.

I was a lot younger then and thought "Time to get rid of these foolish man-dolls. I won't pull any women with these lingering around"

Thinking I may go through some of my early eBay feedback and grovel to any buyers still registered "Err, you don't know me, but about 15 years ago I sold you some painted models..." I think some may have even been sold some off on Bartertown, pre-forum days. Chances are the models have been binned, stripped or stored, long forgotten.

And he’s not the oldest thing I have waiting for paint. Or even primed and waiting. Some people have a pile of shame: grey plastic, still on the sprue. I’ve got a shoebox full of lead. Mostly real lead too, none of these fancy “safe” alloys.

(I’ve also got a pile of grey sprues, to be fair)

Haha, the lead pile of shame. We've all got one of those to some extent:





That was taken a few years ago. It's grown, but only 3 things in that pile have been painted and that's just the Imperial Guard...
