    IFCommander's "Someday I will finish an army!" Project

    Hey Everyone.

    You all probably don't know me since I haven't been on the forums since the Portent Days. As you might guess Imperial Fists are my main army, but I have a few others and also play fantasy. As well as not being on the forums, I also havent done any modeling or painting for about the last 4-5 months!

    Well I finally got off my butt and assembled a unit of beastmen for my fantasy chaos army last weekend. Yay! I also went on the net and discovered that Portent had been reborn here as Warseer. After reading through some of the project logs here, especially Deadley's Project and Reapers Dwarf Project, I got inspired and broke out my last unfinished conversion project from four months back - a converted ratling squad. After working on them last night I brought the finished (converting) total up from 2 to 7 models, leaving only three to go for a full squad of ten. I will post some pictures after I finish converting the remaining three guys.

    But first I want to give you all an idea of how much stuff I have sitting around needing to be assembled and/or painted. These are listed in the order I started the armies, beginning about 5 years ago when I got into the hobby. After I had been playing for about a year I went through a period of a buying frenzy where I bought stuff way faster than I could ever get it painted. I have not bought so much stuff in the last couple of years but I am still way behind the curve on getting stuff done. Any way here goes!
