So, I am going to try to get this right, lots of pics to explain.

Completed a trade here recently, and while it went mostly well...This is how it was packed:

https://scontent.ford1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/ ... e=590D4C44

Which led to a lot of broken stuff, and no bases:

https://scontent.ford1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/ ... e=58D7610B

I fixed them up. They had been put together with an incorrect weapon load out (other guy was using them for KOW, so it didnt matter) He also had converted them to not be armored (was going for savage orruk look) So into the bitz box I go. Every model had some armor added, 5 bosses modded for new claw or claw and weapon. 7 special weapons had to be created. Done. Added some armor to the characters as well. Based everything.

Not sure what you want to count these on, but it actually was a lot of work to fix and modify.

Pics:

some of the mods :

Not sure how many points you would count this as.

totals:

4 warchanter
2 wierd boy shaman
35 brutes

Still working on the big boys

Looks like they were all partially assembled... but you clearly did plenty of work on them.
I'm no authority on this, but I'd say a half point each (rounded up) seems fair.
So...21 points?

Anyone else have any thoughts?

I agree with MM on half a point each
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.

Models that I assembled and painted this year (these and more were posted to the painting forum):
OOP Hybrids:
Image
17 points

Acolyte Iconward "counts as":
Image
1 point

New Plastic Genestealer Hybrids:
Image
9 (1 each)

New Plastic Genestealer Hybrids (With a Counts As Primus and Oversized Mutant conversion):
Image
7 (5@1 & 1@2)

Every army needs custom Objectives. Right? You'll notice that each objective is "numbered" by amount of grass clusters on it:
Image
6 (they're on 40mm bases, but are easier to assemble, so 1 seems appropriate)

40 points, total.

Mortis engine: Slight assembly still required, but after painting only! its actually 90% painted at this point, just needs final stacking

I guess I need some assistance with points values for these!

Here are some Star Fleet Battles ships a friend of mine gave me. He's thinning out he collections of games that he never plays or seldom plays.
He gave me over a dozen ships. Most are one piece models that don't require building. Here are 4 cruisers and 3 destroyers. He only had 4 bases and I don't have any spares.

7 models 7 points. A mostly painted Sigmarite for scale.

Image


Is anyone updating the points?

MagickalMemories - 9 pts awarded for the mutants and the dwarf.

Akum - 21 pts added for the repaired and converted models.
For the necropolis knights - 18 pts (counted as cav), plus 6 for the settra and 10 for the mortis engine (large and complicated model). Sound fair to everyone?

MagickalMemories - 40 pts added for the Genestealers

kturok - 9 pts more for the horrors, 7 pts for the federation ships, 20 points for the second post of horrors


Double check my math, please, everyone. I don't want anyone shorted points because I neglected my duties.
