What's Your Number?
So after counting up my marines the other day, I was reminded how many unpainted models I have. Pretty much all of everything is unpainted, most unprimed. So I thought I might do a little addition to get an estimate of the pit I am in just in the 28 mm scale (ignore epic right now). So starting with space marines and their vehicles that is 280 models. My nids are probably 100. I have my D&D Chainmail Collection with seven factions and say 15 models each so about 100 more there. The new reaper bones models which when you add the kickstarter and the other ones I would say 250. I have the 3 D&D coop games at about 40 models each so another 120. Then there is the Space Hulk game which was about another 30. Luckily I never got beyond touching on WFB so all that stuff is sold or for sale so I will not count it. That leaves Blood Bowl. My last count was like 46 teams which average like 14 players which comes out to about 640 more models.
That adds up to about 1500 models just in ~ 28 mm scale. Oh my god. I hope my wife does not read this post. A few are painted but I am guess not more than my estimation errors. That is a model a day for 5 years. Maybe I go need to stick to X-Wing since those come painted. I did recently pick up some brush on primer so I could give it a try as the weather here is never lines up when I have the time or interest to prime. Just pick a model, prime it one day, then paint the next.
So What is Your Number?
