I get married in under two weeks and it's cost me a considerable amount of money (about a chapter's worth) as such money is tighter than I'd like and so I have had to curtail my hobby spending to finishing my 250 point Tale of Gamers pledges.
I'll confess this is hard work, FW has some cool new toys out and I've started to take a better look at my Dark Angels - I even had my first Necron itch the other day...but I will persevere, or at least try to.
I'm viewing this as a form of penance for my reckless spending. I have well over 150 models of various shapes and sizes that need painting - which is a lot. Thus I have set myself the task of getting them done before returning to the realm of frivolous spending.
The task before my is no small one. In no particular order I have the following to paint...
6 bikes, Sammael, rhino and two tactical squads, land speeder, RW command squad
Fire prism, 2 wave serpents, guardians, striking scorpions, wraithguard, dire avengers and a farseer council
14 tactical marines, 3 chariots (of my own design) and 2 wolf guard terminators
32 Death Company and 5 Sanguinary Guard
4 TYVeterans, Cassius and in 30k 5 scouts, 10 assault marines and 5 mkIVs
10 Assault marines, 20 vanguard marines, a tactical squad, drop pod, Sicarion Venator, librarian and command squad, storm talon.
Tactical Squad, 5 terminators
Combat assault squad, 10 terminators, Land Raider, drop pod.
Baneblade, 15 Vostroyan First born, cadian veteran squad in a chimera, command squad
10 terminators, 7 purifiers, 14 knights and 7 interceptros + an inquisitor an about 7 henchmen.
Chaos Space Marines:
Fulgrim, Angron, Lucius the eternal, 5 chosen, 15 cultists, 10 chaos space marines and a hell brute.
To top this off I have my monthly pledges of Dark Elves to do - this month I've got 5 Dark Riders and another 10 executioners to finish.
As you can see, this is no small effort. I'm realistic in saying that I probably won't get all of these done by September (when the money should start flowing again) but I'm hoping to at least make a sizeable dent into this lot.
What do you guys have in your back catalogue? Can you top this list?
Let me know in the comments section below...
p.s. - I've got some Tau to do as well...
