*Updated 10/04/2017 (Australian date format)

Well this is probably overdue, however I finally got my rear into gear and began a blog on the collection I've been hoarding over the years and recently settled on a theme for. It has been a labour of love, especially seeking out all the rare items, organising customised goodies etc etc. All part of the fun I guess smile.gif

Anyone interested in seeing how this unfolds, they can do so here - http://wcwdb.blogspot.com.au

The current timeframe is as follows;

2013 - Basic troops completed (mostly done)
2014 - HQ and armour completed (mostly done)
2015 - All Warmachines completed (Beginning November 2013 - Jan 2018)
2016 - Hiatus... lots of display case planning, cataloging of inventory, budgeting... general life stuff (you know the drill)
2017 - Display case build commencing March (June completion date), all HQ models to be completed (July), current models in the field finished, last of the Titans (3) to ship (end of year)
2018 - Wraith units, Harlequins, Rogue Trader miniatures, Armorcast transports
2019 - Remaining Jetbikes & Wave Serpents plus a few other outliers
2020 - Tome of the Dras'Volharr to be completed (marking 23 years)

Given my profession requires long hours and weekend work, I don't find alot of time (despite having cysts regularly crop up in my wrist) to do the painting myself sadly. Just before anyone asks "Why aren't you painting these yourself" smile.gif

A full listing of all current models will be written up over the weekend. It will be faster than trying to update my Visio chart of the Warhost given the new additions.

I think I've just found someone as crazy as myself...I might possibly crazier given that I'm painting all of my stuff :S

Awesome to see. I had been wondering why on Earth anyone would want so many warlocks painted when I saw Sound of Machines pics of them.

Very impressive collection - particularly the unreleased stuff and the cheap armour cast pickups!
How much is it costing to have them all painted??

Thanks smile.gif

Well, the bulk of the army isn't overly expensive, however when it comes to the HQ stuff, that's where the dollars begin to ramp up a bit. Mind you, there are only a "small" number compared with the rest of the army, so I don't mind having them really "pop", so to speak.

Had to weigh up if it was worth doing a dodgy job myself and feeling like I had 1200+ miniatures of gumby quality, or actually get them done properly. I'm glad i've gone the professional route!

It is all swings and round abouts, over the years i've spent a fraction of their full retail cost, so the painting more or less rounds it all out - All in all, i'm happy that i've stuck it out.

Thanks mate, i'll be able to take group shots of the miniatures by type in the meantime until they're all sorted out smile.gif No doubt i'll be putting together multiple tables for the "Big Picture" in a couple of years time. Who knows, if I win the lotto, perhaps i'll just send them all off at once haha.

That's still a bloody lot of Eldar mate smile.gif and i'm happy to hear it! Seriously, if GW based their numbers on the number of large Eldar armies out there, they'd realise the race isn't dying, just multiplying in boxes haha.

I know of only one significantly larger Eldar army in the US (or maybe it was Canada), I recall it being over 80k. If I saw that painted, i'm pretty sure i'd be sending it to GW smile.gif

Max_Q, via alot of very interesting people. Wasn't an easy find, actually none of the rarer items were - lots of persistence paid off though smile.gif

Painting schedule added and concept reference image for the Warmachine paint job. Still working out the budget for all 21 Warmachines, but I suspect the wallet will begin crying uncontrollably very soon.

Updated with completed Warp Spiders and Fire Dragons smile.gif I'm told the Dire Avengers are being assembled (or are close to being finished), so I anticipate a sample shot very soon, followed closely by the Swooping Hawks.

The Prototype Jetbikes are almost enroute to be painted (60 of), so that should keep 'em busy until the next wave gets there.

Shipped off the next batch of 20 HQ models today to Duskfrost, so some very pretty results should be coming back in the next month or so. Hope to have them all close to being sorted by the end of the year (or very close after that).

I think in 12 months time i'll have to go house hunting, and probably not for myself!
