So first time posting but I've been reading this forum and reddit in the last week a lot.
Basically I need some help please.
I used to collect GW back in the old days some twenty years ago but have somehow gotten that bug again when randomly at a car boot sale last Sunday (I never go to these i just thought it would be a laugh). Turns out I randomly purchased for £5 someones old bits box and a combined 2nd and 3rd addition of blood bowl. But blood bowl can wait.
So I emptied the box out
Now I was thinking can i build an army here without spending anymore money. Not because I'm grumpy but this could be fun right?
Limited resources and creative ideas ahoy. So I'm asking for some much needed advice and help with this and I'll post pictures and updates of the process obviously. As far as I've gathered this is now 40k version 8? and it seems a codex is now £40 ? ? ! ! how did this happen?
I'll go through this more tonight but so far there's a lot of Space Crusade Marines, some of the original plastic Rouge Trader Marines, 4 and a bit Terminators, 2 very broken SC Dreadnoughts, 23 humans were they diggers from Gorkamorka?, 2 Zombie sprues and a couple Berserkers. There's also an almost complete chaos spawn, some damaged skeletons and what appears to be a bit of everything old and forgotten.
I'm guessing you still need 2 Troops and a HQ so I've counted at least 20 Marines in various states. And since it's a mix of Imperial and Chaos I'll bash them together.
There's also about 20 citadel paints, plastic glue, super glue and one unused box of milliputt. So it's a bit like one of those old starter sets but ridiculously more affordable but in piss poor condition. I then emptied what I thought was just bubble wrap and found a load of sand, rubble bits and 28mm bases.
All Ideas welcome.
