A little overstretched

So what usually happens with me is I finish a group of minis and suddenly have nothing new to paint, so I go about the internet ordering more. Then, suddenly, I have too much to do, as you can see.

The gladiators get first priority. The Doom figures will be pushed off to the side for now (not pictured are the 24 Wargames Factory zombies I'm also assembling for Doom.) There are a couple 54mm ACW figures I need to finish. My second copy of the Confrontation figure "Drac Mac Syro" just arrived. After I've finished the ACW figures (after the gladiators hopefully), I'll try to get to Drac Mac as well as a couple Reaper minis. Then perhaps back to all those figures for Doom.

Yeah. Too many projects. I won't need to purchase any more minis for the next month or two. I hope. But, when you have this many projects all at once, the best thing to do is to just take them on one at a time.

Gladiators: Assembly is finished! I just want to get a couple other things assembled so I can prime the whole lot in one go. The retiarius is coming along well; his galerus turned out a bit rough, but I think folks will be focusing on the flying net too much to even notice the galerus. The quilted arm armor turned out perfect (for me.)

I also added the big beard and hair to one of my noxii figures. He's going to be a fun figure to paint.


  1. I hope that's not all your unpainted lead. Because if it is, you got nothing on me. My unpainted lead can be measured in pounds. I have one of those metal shelves you buy at the hardware store full of just lead waiting for paint.

  2. Nope, this is just the stuff I got in the past week. My actual mountain isn't as large as most folks, but it's certainly a lot more than what you see here.

  3. looks like a lot of fun. I wish my hand was steady enough to paint. Well, there is that and I have no artistic ability.
