Default How many models do you have unpainted

i was chatting with someone today about the number of models i have unpainted and we decided it was part and parcel of the gamer bug.

it gets worse if at any point you have worked for GW.. it gets even MORE worse if you worked for GW when you could buy metal models for 30 a kilo and plastics at 75p per sprue.

I shudder to think how many unpainted models I have, let alone how many I have that are not even clipped out and stuck together.

I finally finished painting the last few of my brettonians the other day. And promptly went and bought some more so I could paint again, which are now also finished.

Your a sick man. Nobody can have all thier models painted!

I was clearing out the room I store all mymodels in and I found an fabius bile box set with his retinue that I hadnt even takenthe wrapping off, and I've had the box for at least 8 years.

But I dont have so many that I couldnt paint them at some point in the future ... obviously this is several years in the future.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Yep, poor hobby sir.. very poor. You're not a real gamer until you've got a box full of stuff unpainted.

THats the same for me :D. Several years from now, when Games Workshop has long since gone bust. I will be in an attic somwhere, shouting, "WOO, I'VE PAINTED THEM ALL"

I've had all the models in a large draw under my bed unpainted for about half a year. Summer holidays given me time to paint them up. I'm sure I'll get another stash of unpainted ones soon enough, when I get back to Uni
