So, I´ve been thinking about the huge pile of lead and plastic I have gathered during these years. You probably know by the name of this site and the diversity of galleries to the right that I´ve been covering a lot of ground. But recently I´ve been more comfortable with the idea of selling stuff.
I´m not ok with selling my painted stuff. But unpainted masses are another story, and I´ve been doing that lately. Maybe you´ve been one of the lucky ones to grab some nice deals from me. So I though about writing down my actual interests and a little view to the near future. This is probably of interest only to myself, so you´ve been warned.
I will be keeping a few ongoing projects, those that continue to grow no matter what. I will also have some side projects, just to take a break from the main ones. I also have some stuff I´d like to finish someday. Everything other than that is going away. All this regarding figures I already own, no purchases planned.
I will keep painting and gaming Lord of the Rings, and probably get into War of the Ring in the near future. I will continue to paint WW2 in 20mm, or 1/72 scale. I will also keep painting 1/72 DBA armies, since they are nice little projects that fill my Ancients hunger. I will paint some more naval WW2 ships in 1/2400, and hopefully start gaming. And finally, I´ll keep amassing Epic 40K squads and vehicles for grand battles in the far future.
That´s five very different ongoing projects, with different scales for painting and very different battles for gameplay.
Side projects are stuff I will paint once in a while just to get away from the ongoing projects. I will surely continue to expand my 40K Marines army, which I´ll never bring to the table, unless I´m very lucky. I will paint some skirmish games figures, like cowboys, gladiators, or pirates, for example. And between skirmish and big battles there´s always the El Dorado project and maybe even some Darkest Africa.
Need to finish:
While I do all that, there is some stuff I own that would like to finish eventually. A Warmaster Undead starter army for example. A few Blood Bowl teams I have laying around somewhere. I´d like to finish my 28mm celts, republican romans and carthaginians, but those are way behind on the line. I have a 6mm samurai army I need to finish too.
Now, after all that stuff I mentioned, you wouldn´t believe how much other stuff needs to go. ECW for example. Napoleonics. Falklands. Lots of 28mm WW2 figures. Some Warhammer wood elves and chaos. Some 28mm egyptians. And I´m sure there are some other odds and ends in those drawers I have.
