That is one heck of a collection, I am totally impressed, and made me remember by Imperial Guard army, although your’s puts it to utter shame…. not sure about the fliers though, kinda always felt they were the point at which they broke the game in terms of what worked at the scale it’s presented at.

I would adore a 15mm scale version of 40K, just like Flames of War, but with the awesome back story and the possibilities for actually fielding a space marine chapter with all the cool things…. getting over excited by this thought :)

It’s also totally inspired me to dig stuff up off of an old forum as well, though when I get home I’m sorely tempted to throw more pics up, this is one my Grey Hunters, one of the original sculpts form 1.5 ed with my own modifications of course, I could *never* not alter a model just a bit with some green stuff.

The painting is pretty poor, I never got *that* good, but I was quite pleased with the way the bolter turned out on the chain. I always pictured the wolves as pretty feral, so the axe and shield to me looked awesome.

The Eisenhorn trilogy got me through my hospital stay when they rebuilt my eardrum, I marathoned all three in the two days I was in hospital, and Ciaphus Cain is always a wonderfully entertaining read, I love how those books put a not so serious spin on the whole universe. 

Warning, I could geek out like this for ages :)

I can geek out about this sort of thing for ages as well.

My painting was never any good. It looked nice on a tabletop, but not right up close. Unless I really put the effort in. Which I did with my wolves.

I should really try and get some pictures of my Privateer Press models. Switched from GW to PP mostly because the game was more fun, and it was cheaper to play. Circle Orboros look amazing.

This is the first time I have seen myself on one of these lists.

But you post interesting things and great pics and the odd cute selfie… how could people not be fans… I am a confused person

I only just passed having 200 followers recently. I’m sure I have a couple of fans, but not many.

Also, completely off topic but I am stunned by how many warhammer books you own. I thought I was full on, having 10,000 points of IG and a few thousand points each of Spaces Wolves, Grey Knights and Sisters. But that collection puts me to shame.

Seriously, 10 THOUSAND!!!!! points of imperial guard, now that is seriously impressive and I’d really love to see pics of it. That puts any of my various armies to shame. I’m not really sure what they’re worth points wise any more, haven’t actually played 6th Ed 40K, and was always moer interested in painting something awesome than making one thing huge.

My space wolves are my first love and always will be my favourite, going all the way back to the army list published in White Dwarf that was an alternative to the 40K compendium (or compilation) one, it’s been a long time, for Rogue Trader. I’ve been working on that one since I was 13, it’s got miniatures from the RTB01 set all the way up to modern 3rd party Thunder wolves. The concept is silly, but being such a big furry I *like* the idea of giant armoured killing machines riding me into battle.

Aside from that I’ve got a Khorne army, bits of an Eldar one (Ulthwe, mainly because I loved the concept of the seer council), a truly massive dwarf host for fantasy (easily 6000 points for 3rd edition, no idea what that runs to now) a High Elf army, and a rather large savage orc army that is suffering from being mostly metal coloured. Haven’t played for ages, I think I preferred fantasy as, to me, it was always a better game with a tighter rule set. 40K was fun, but fantasy felt as if skill had rather more to do with the outcome. The background for 40K was just waaayyy more compelling though, I spent way too much time in the fluff section of Portent and Warseer back in the day.

The number of books though is just me being me, I’m a collector of cool things, I love them, and say what you like about them GW produce some lovely looking books, especially the things put out by Forgeworld. I *love* my leather bound Horus Heresy WH30K book, it’s beautiful, and I;ve been playing so long I’ve got every edition of 40K and Fantasy from 3rd ed up plus all the associated compendiums and army books and supplements and things. 

I think my favourite game though of all time is Necromunda, although that’s got a great deal wo do with the year long campaign we ran back when I was in high school and the effort we put into running it.

Yeah, I’m a big geeky war gamer :)

I had to go back searching through old forums I thought I would never remember passwords for, but I did. And here are pictures of my IG.image

Half of the troops

image

The other half of the troops. Those ruins at the back? Yeah, they are heavy weapon teams. 18 in total.

image

And the vehicles.

9 Basilisk, 5 Chimera, 10 Leman Russ, 1 Hell-Hound, 1 Salamander Scout, 10 Sentinals (one missing, found later in a drawer), and a Valkyrie. Missing from the shot is a Vendetta that I got later that year.

I much preferred painting to playing as well. I am just crap at playing. As far as I can recall, I have never won a game with any of the armies I used to own: Fantasy (6000 pts Wood Elves, 2500 pts Bretonnians, 2500 pts High Elves), LoTR (500 pts Minas Tirith), or 40k (10k pts IG, 3000 pts SoB, 2500 pts Grey Knights, 2000 pts Space Wolves).

I spent a year working for GW, and having a 50% staff discount meant I spent most of my pay at work. Hence the huge collections.

And then when I got bored of it, I gave it all away to a friend. Models, books, templates, terrain, dice, EVERYTHING. Aside from the Space Wolves. They were my last army I collected. I still have them in a drawer, half painted. The sculpts were just too cool to give away.

EDIT: My lovely girlfriend has reminded me that there are still a few 40k novels on our book shelves. How could I part with the Gaunt’s Ghosts, Ravernor, Eisenhorn or Ciaphas Cain series?
