Here you’ll see a bunch of bagged miniatures, waiting to be taken out and given some love.
*I apologize for the cruddy photo. I accidentally deleted the one I took during the day, with sunlight.*
They need some love because I don’t play 40k. I have in the past, maybe three times, with my Tau battleforce, but they’re on their way to being sold/traded. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the look of the Tau, but I’m not too gung-ho to play them when we get back into the game (later this year). You know me, I like starting fresh…and spending lots of money needlessly doing so!
So in the picture you will find:
Space Marines: A set of the Tactical Marines (upper left) from the 5th Ed. starter set. While I don’t think I’d play a Space Marine army (except perhaps Grey Knights), I do like the look of some of their models. The regular dudes are one group that I like. I also like the scouts. And I like the Landspeeder, which I also have (big bag in the lower right). Other SM models I like are the Drop Pod and the Stormraven. And Grey Knights stuff. But I’m still not planning on running Space Marines.
Imperial Guard: One of the armies I do like, but I probably won’t actually run them. I have a Sentinel (lower left), as I think it’s a great little walker.
Dark Eldar: And lastly, my most recent pick-up, 20 Kabalite Warriors (upper right). I decided some time last year that whenever I got back into 40k, I would do so with Dark Eldar. I’m not usually an ‘evil’ player, but there are various things about the DE that I like. So I got these guys at 2-for-1 from Heavy Support. What a deal! So, I’m already on my way towards a small DE force.
All but the Dark Eldar stuff I got on ebay. Last year I bought quite a number of things on ebay, mostly bits and parts for my various armies, sometimes GW terrain, and sometimes 40k stuff like this. Namely for the reason that even if I don’t play an army, sometimes I like some of their models, and would like to build and paint them someday. In the future. Often the far future. I have a O&G Arachnarok Spider that will one day be built, even though I don’t have plans to play an O&G army (although if I did, it would totally be an all-Goblin force!).
Anyway, this is everything I currently have for 40k (a game I don’t actually play), aside from the only stuff (Tau) that I’ve actually played. These are more ‘centerpiece’ models for me than anything else. It’s quite likely that I’ll add more of this kind of stuff to my collection, be it Fantasy or 40k or even other game systems and companies. I’m just like that.
But I’m sure you’ve already realised it.
Thanks for reading.
