Points updated. Nothing added for the studio - this is the miniatures assembly challenge. Pretty sure that actually counts as terrain, and that belongs in a different thread. :)

YOU WHERE WARNED! Flanking overwhelm picture assembly assault commence!

20 Boarding Marines and 6 Jet Bikes done over the weekend
(20x1, + 6x3 = 38 points)
Image


Frost Grave (21 RUS's, 18 warband members, 2 ogryn sized animals) and Batman (16 human sized models and clay face)
( 55x1 + 3x2 = 61 points) done last week with batman being done three months ago (Anyone else find it a pain in the ass to get these models? I could not get anyone local to successfully order me a killer frost or ravager).
Image


Gnolls & animal companions (22 infantry sized models), stompas (No idea what to call them they are like 15 pieces each after I was done converting), and Mechs (16 pictured but only claiming 12 as a lance of these were assembled in October but fell victim to cat attack and just finally got repaired for a massive alpha strike game last month).
(34 Infantry sized models + 3 stompas? = 34+ stompas points)
Image


58 Freeborn Infantry & Drones, 3 raider bikes, and an attack skimmer (58X1 + 3x3 + 1x5 = 72 Points)
DISCLAIMER : Ignore the two jerks laying down uncleaned and not on bases I am not including them in my count (this lot I just sold on ebay three weeks ago so I cant retake the picture). These where assembled at the end of January right before my preferred Local game store went out of business.
Image


Prodos AVP Horde and food for the colony (37 aliens with 4 light war-jack sized aliens, 6 light war-jack predators + 1 lifter, and 24 infantry sized models (Damn it now that im posting the picture one of the marines has decided he doesn't need an arm please ignore him for now). Spent two hours with boiled water in mugs making all those tails not lame (60x1 + 11x2 = 82 points)
Image
Image


Spent the last two days sick distracting myself with: 68 Vostroyan Infantry, 9 heavy weapons, 1 iron hands vindicator , 1 Iron Hands Knight Errant. IGNORE the armored sentinels all I did was give one a hunter killer missile and base them yesterday).
(68x1 + 9x1 + 1x5 + 1x10 = 92 points)
Image

379 Points total (Plus whatever you think is fair for the stompas I made)

And I'm spent..........I have like 10 more gnolls to assemble, 26 more mechs to assemble, and a ton of iron hands *edit* (I forgot how much I hate working with FW resin). I have this week and next week before Biochemistry, physics, and statistics for "biologists" (reading that makes me feel like someone is patting me on the head) begin to eat my soul and free time. Now to go prime all those vostroyans with the vindicator and knight for a Fate of Konor event Sunday.

Those are Epic Stompas, right? I had some years ago.. I don't remember them being that hard to assemble, only a few pieces each. BUT they were the size of a typical infantry model.

Yeah they are the metal epic stompas. They dont really fit on a 28-32mm base like the other plastic ones. I used metal rods brass and killa kanz parts to convert them up. If the group says standard infantry points im cool with that.

Metal? Hmm. Never had them, just the plastics.
Add a pic showing scale between them and 40k infantry and termies.
That should help. Remember, old, metal CSM termies are only worth 1 point, but new plastics are 2; even the new simple builds.

So multi part plastic infantry are worth more? I missed that. What infantry sized models, other models are worth more?

EIDT: I can not fid a side by side shot but they are actually called mek boy gargantz. I will take some close ups of them. They dont fit on 32mm bases to wide and I remember the plastic stompas fit on 28mm bases.

Multi part aren't currently more. It's all by base size, but subjectivity is possible on occasion.
They look like they'd be on 40mm bases, so I don't think equating them to Terminators is too far off.
