    March is gone, so what have I been doing?


    I should be out but instead I’m at home, writing this of course.

    Now that March has gone (well nearly) it’s time to look at what’s happened.

    First, let’s look at Relics.

    As some of you might remember Tor Gaming ran a KS project called ‘Relics Reinforcements‘ during Jan/Feb, well time is moving on and so I thought I’d pop back to see what they were upto.

    They’ve been busy.

    Good at buying, not so good at building, awful at painting

    Morning Folks,

    Last night I based up 16 more Vikings, some extra models I bought for my SAGA Viking Army.

    I then looked on the painting station I use (it has the cutting board within) and on that station I have:

    • 3 Napoleonic British Line Infantry built an glued to their base.
    • 12 Napoleonic British Hussars, unbuilt and lying in pieces.
    • 8 Brotherhood models for the Westwind Empire of the Dead game.
    • 1 Gentlemens Club (Empire of the Dead) based and half painted.
    • 1 Plastic Gripping Beast Viking.
    • 16 Metal Vikings (Artizan and SAGA).
    • The Witch King on Horseback (unbased).
    • 1 Menoth UA (can’t remember the unit) undercoated and based.
    • 1 Menoth Light Warjack, based.
    • 5 Space Marines unpainted.
    • 1 Imperial Cadian Trooper.

    and finally

    • 1 Space Marine painted in Black Templar colours.

    This doesn’t include the bases (mainly wooden) 30 odd Vallejo paints and some tools.

    What a mess.

    So this lead me to think about do I just enjoy buying the miniatures and have a dream that one day I’ll have them all painted?
