Default And you thought your armies were big...

Check this out (unfortunately in dutch)

This dude is selling his collections at the moment.

Marktplaats.nl - Advertenties van boomboo uit Amsterdam

A complete chapter of Blood angels, imperial fists and ultramarines (yes that's about a 1000 miniatures per chapter)

Blood ravens, sons of sanguinius and crimson fists companies, (around a 100 each)

11 (?!) thunderhawks, not sure if they are the real deal, but still..

And he is still saying there is more to come.

That's an incredible amount of figures! Horrible how he stores them though. Just thrown into a box?!

there are two reason why I don't owe so many figures, apart from money: risk of crap painting and storage problems...the very problems the guy seems to experience

Yeah I know, it just seems he bought the lot, spray painted everything and threw m in a box. The amount of wasted cash is staggering to be honest.

This. It breaks my heart to see someone treat his miniatures this way.

Someone buy them before they get scarred for life!

How old are these figures, I haven't seen anyone use green bases in forever... Could be something he did on his own though. It saddens me to see them all in a box that haphazardly. I mean, I don't exactly have the money to buy a battle-chest right now, but I'm at least going to do something protective for them.
