EDIT 09/11 : I applied for the ToFP 2011/2012 in the boy category. Work starts on page 5, post #93.
Hello fellow warseers,
Inspired by other logs, I decided to start one myself. I hope it will encourage me to build, convert and paint my greenskin army that I've been collecting for like 12 or 13 years now.
I've already painted some minis, but the ratio between finished and unfinished (or never started) minis is still in favor of the later. I recently got interested again in my colection by watching other people logs, particularly in the science fiction subforum and the many beautiful ork armies there (like Synapse's one).
So I'm going to try to build what remains to be built and paint my entire collection of minis. I don't know how many I've got but here is a quick breakdown of what I've got (from memory) :
- around 80 orcs (spears, one weapon + shields, 2 hand weapons, arrerboyz)
- around 10 boarboyz
- some savage orcs (old minis)
- 10 black orcs (would like to expend them with the new plastic ones, but it'd mean more things to paint, so maybe later)
- 2 orc chariots
- special characters : grimgor, gorbad, games day minis (2000 and 2008), grumlok (from WAR), borgut, azhag
- more than 100 gobbos (NG, and common)
- 10 wolf riders
- around 10 squigs/hoppers/"hunters"
- 2 goblin chariots
- 2 rock lobbas
- 1 spear chukka
- some snotlings and one pump wagon
- 3 stone trolls
- 3 giants (2 albion and one plastic)
- 2 wyverns
All right, it brings us to around 260 miniatures. I know some out there own a lot more minis than I, but it still is a good start, isn't it?
Now there are a few problems. First is that my motivation is quite weak, sometimes I feel like I want to paint a lot of things, sometimes it just seems daunting and I'm discouraged.
Then my camera broke down recently, I'm waiting for it to be fixed, in the meantime I'll try to borrow my friend's one.
Ok, so no pictures for the moment, I just need a bit of encouragement.
Thank you for reading all this (at least those of you who did it), I'll do my best to bring this project as far as I can.
