Catacomb Command Barge, magnetized to work as an annihilation barge. Overlord, Lord, half painted cryptek.

3 for the HQs. Do we count the barge as a small or medium vehicle (5 or 6 points?) and may I have an extra point for magnets?
On r/miniswap under the same name. Please be polite & answer PMs, even if all you tell me is "No thanks," or "I need more time." I expect lower rating to ship first, even if that's me, unless we work something out in advance.

Nice. I need to update all the *edit* I have been working on. Sadly as we established already terrain is not models, as i just built two imperial sectors and a frost grave board.

I feel like terrain should count, but I guess if I'm basically gone for 6 months I can't complain.

You can have 6 pts for size and an extra for magnets, sure. It's not like the points matter, right? Plus, 10 is easier to add than 9, at least before the coffee kicks in.

I really, really need to take some pics. I have a moderate backlog, and am staring at assembling about 600 models in the next 3 months, so I might as well claim some bragging rights, eh?

IIRC, we had a terrain challenge a couple years back, with almost no participation. Shame, really, because good terrain makes a game pop just as much as fully painted armies does.

600 models.....if you pull that off you might as well claim total annihilation haha. I have around 200-250 new models made/in the construction but not 600. No way I manage to pull that off haha.

Dude if you get 600 done in less than a month you will be my hero.

Finally catching up on some of the stuff I assembled since the beginning of November. (My FLGS started a Toys 4 Tots lock-in last year, and did the same this year. I was scrambling to build some minis for some events).

I had already claimed 50 of these Brits, but there are another 84 of them (technically, some are Hanoverians, but anyway) assembled, primed, and even a few with paint on them now.

Can't have Brits without some French to fight. There are 125 of them in this picture.

And, I also got the entire base set of Test of Honor assembled, plus the Pauper soldiers box, so that's another 46 models.

If I have done my math right, that's 225 points of stuff assembled. I still have more to go to round out the year - I have units of cavalry where I can't count them until the riders are assembled too.

Nice Warlord. After finals next week I have a space marine army to account for and some other random 40K.

Quick break from Nappies. I do like the new GW models, when it comes to assembly. Yes, they are monopose, but much more dynamic than their monopose models used to be.

20 pox
7 marines
3 characters
1 drone
32 points for the lot? (It's well before the coffee has kicked in today)
