The Great Unpainted Masses

Recommended Posts

I don't have any unpainted minis. I DON'T HAVE ANY UNPAINTED MINIS.

 

Nope.

denial. the first stage of figmentia.

 

I was doing well painting my unpainted stash. Then came the 12 days of reaper. Then I needed more paint, picked up a few bones, etc... somehow I have more unpainted miniatures than when I started painting again last year. It's like they breed while I'm at work. :blink:

Three of the very first group of six minis I purchased back in '01 or '02 are currently unpainted. The farthest they have ever gotten is primer, and in one case a couple of base coats. For some reason I still keep finding minis I absolutely must have, even though my painted to unpainted ratio is very bad.

I suspect my collection is a lot smaller than I previously thought. I just sort of hid it all away - but I think when I'm imagining great, vast hordes of white metal minions I may be thinking of times past . . . before the Great Prunings.

 

Anyway, I have to clear some space before I can take some pictures and clearing snow murderlized me. I'm content to sit here and vegetate, having expended my last reserves of energy boiling my new Flits.

Who is your next of kin? We're going to need to know who to send condolences to.

All of my unpainted minis fit in one part of the computer desk I use as my paint station. I'll grab a quick picture now...

 

Here is an overview of my unpainted minis along with a general shot of my paint station at large.

Although, technically, that rainbow colored flail snail is finished, so he's not part of the unpainted posse. Same goes for that blue tentacle on the far left.

They shall come... I've got double vampire + extras coming in March, an order in with Eastern Front Studios, nearly 200 more coming from the trollforged kickstarter, all the Imbrian stuff, and another 10ish from SuperFogeys ::D:.

 

Figmentia sets in...

I actually just did a head count of my unpainted minis, and it's 56, although that is counting a couple each that my girlfriend and her daughters wanted to paint. So, my personal pile is more like 50. Hooray for that getting increased by about 1000 over the year!

Edit: now that I look at that, I'm pretty sure that partha goblin from the Tangerine thread is on the upper edge of the first picture!
