The new Archaon model. Price is pretty hefty, I don't play AoS and the model is incredibly intimidating to paint, but god dayum that is one sexy model (ironic considering the only head Dhorgar lacks is that of Slaanesh).

Anything for 40K anymore. I don't have the mental capacities to deal with the local players anymore, and am focusing on other projects at the moment.

Anything from Forge World.

Also, a bunch of the Reaper Bones 4 Kickstarter models. I really want to have some of them, and having so many spare models would be handy for my kids and wife to learn how to paint, but we just can't afford much hobby wise right now.

Actually, in all seriousness, the newly teased Sorscha 3 for Khador in Warmachine. I like Khador, I like Sorscha, and I like the Man-o-war armor. I won't play the game again, but I might snag the model to paint up for fun.

Current projects:
- Ironjawz - Dispossessed - Homemade scenery

Throw on an Angel Giraldez paint job and it's hard for something like that not to look cool. I find myself wanting every miniature he paints, but I'll try to remain satisfied with just admiring his work via the painting books he wrote

For me, my current want that I can't really justify would be the rest of the Kingdom Death : Monster stuff that I don't yet own and haven't yet ordered...

It'd only cost me another $2-3k, I think.

I can't justify buying the Skavenblight Scramblers BB team but fortunately it's only twenty quid so I don't have to, I just have to lay off the beer for one Friday night.

Not really fussed by any of the other big-ticket stuff to be honest, I don't like the oversized primarchs because they remind me of the days when He-Man action figures led my Airfix Afrika Korps into battle. The big tanks just won't fit on my 4' square table but I would like a Warhound Titan one day I suppose.

After what GW did to Fantasy, I can't justify ever spending a penny on Age of Sigmarines. With that being said, the models are great... just a shame about the product they're associated with.

I would agree the Kingdom of Death stuff I have been eyeing and it is just insane the detail but it would be difficult to get games in.


The female models are rather exaggerated but incredible looking all the same.

Greece

I would love having Cypher due to his design and lore, but I don't like Dark Angels that much, so he would be pretty much useless for me (except if I would put him in my under construction Grey Knight army, which is supposed to be pure Grey Knights, so no). That it is if I got him on ebay seperate. If I got him in the Triumvirate of the Primarchs box, it would be more of a waste, because, I would have a cool looking useless Cypher, a victorious looking Roboute Guilliman that is more useless to me than Cypher (don't know his stats, but I wouldn't use him anyways) and a very useful in this edition Voldus, whose design I don't like much (my tastes are too specific).

Also, I find Sylvaneths, Deathrattle and Seraphon to have really cool looking miniatures, but I don't want to get into Fantasy at this point in time.

Additionally, an Imperial Knight would be a very beautiful miniature to own. but as I said, I want to build a pure army and this one might actually need a lot of painting, to a point where I might eventually get bored.

Pretty much any titan bigger than a Knight - my group's games will never be big enough to warrant something that big.

Also, don't play Marines but I really want the old Captain Invictus model (the terminator captain with the twin-linked plasma and powerfist). I simply LOVE the design. It's a shame that you can't find the thing anywhere and when you do it's been 'converted' to a potato.

Kind of curious but how come you mention Colonials and Union as 2.5 armies?

Otherwise I feel ya. Especially since outside of Late Roman Republic/Early Imperial, I want to do Bronze Age with some Egyptians.

Edit:


As far as I know that figure was a studio conversion using two plasma pistols and a plastic powerfist on the metal captain.

Forge World and Eldar stuff. And both barrels; FW Eldar.

I do deeply covet the Eldar superheavy tanks. But seeing that I only rarely get my Eldar to the table, it’s hard to justify adding too much more to them, much less large centerpiece models I’d almost never use. Heck, I can’t even bring myself to pick up another wave serpent, and my forces could desperately use one. I’d also snap up a box of wraithguard and a wraithlord if money wasn’t an object.

Adding to my marines I can justify. But there is some nice FW stuff I do covet. 30k tops the chart on the “not going to happen” list though. While I’m trying to slowly build up a 30k compliant force, sinking that much cash into a variant I’ve only dabbled in is hard to do.

So many wants, so little time and money.

Kharadron Overlords, particularly the ships.
That army centers around the ships which are far too expensive and far too fragile for my regular gaming.

I wouldn't want to make display pieces out of them because I'm primarily a gamer. And they also made the core troops you need to unlock the ships---if you're playing anything with points---too expensive moneywise. They are essentially Imperial Guard style play.

OMG, yes! I wanted a FW Eldar Cobra Type 2 for so long, but I'm like you - I don't just play enough to justify getting one.

Still, very sexy...


Maybe if I sell off the excess that I don't play with...
