Finally finished painting my armies
« on: July 21, 2020, 05:31:37 AM »
Finally finished painting my armies. Had some fun putting them together for group shots.
My goal is to have every unit and special character in every army. I do have a rather large box
of stuff coming to puff up my Lizardmen and some odds and ends.

Though something is wrong about that sentence that you have "finished".. you should or can not be ever finished with this hobby, where is your Pile of Shame?  :-D

Congratz, great job with your armies!

I have to say even I am impressed.

 :biggriin:

Though I do share the others' suspicions - if you have that much painted, then the odds are very high you have a substantial warehouse somewhere close by with the unpainted stuff.   :engel:

A fantastic (in more sense than one) achievement! Hope you have great games with them all.

Amazing achievement! Great stuff!

If I may suggest, you could unify the basing and the unit trays, to make the armies look more uniform.  :-)

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

OR, and hear me out here, send it all to me and I'll happily do it...

Gankom ... are you asking for those armies for free? Or to base his armies for free and send them back to him? :icon_wink:

Yes.

Such a shame the state of the mail delivery these days. You just never know when things will get to their destination...

I think that Gankom would be brilliant in today’s political environment. That was the best answer ever and he took us down the postal path to leave us truly wonder what we missed!
