In the same concept as the thread in the BA section, to take stock of what we have and what we have to do, what's in your mountain of grey sprues that needs making and painting for the Hive Mind?

I suppose mine is a black pile of shame, as I got as far as undercoating it, but they've been sat like that in a box since Deathstorm came out. Which was what, six years ago? Ugh. Anyway, it seems pretty modest by comparison, but posting it here might jog me to actually do something about it

 

 

3 Tyranid Warriors

8 Hormagaunts

8 Genestealers

Carnifex

Hive Crone

^Indeed, I found taking stock of what Blood Angels I had in front of me went some way to focussing my painting, hopefully this can do the same here!

Embarrassingly enough, I only have 3 Zoanthropes outstanding for my Nids!

Though I am also working on 3 other armies for my brothers and son!

Good work Clearing your backlog is an enviable goal. Contrast is definitely going to speed up my painting, going to swing by my storgae unit later and do a quick tentacle count on my nids to get that sprue pile accurate....and pick up my indomitus set...

Something must be wrong if only having a few models left is embarrassing Jud... or maybe the rest of us should be promoting this mindset? laugh.png As a rough number of what I have:

 

~60 Hormagaunts

~60 Termagaunts

~22 Warriors

2 Biovores*

Hive Tyrant*

~5 Gargoyles*

~16 Genestealers

2 Carnifexes*

1 Carnifex

2 Lictors*

2 Zoanthropes**

2 Raveners***

 

* metal

** metals, one from each previous age

*** I think, these are old metals

 

There's some spore mines too and some other bits so I still need to collate exact numbers and models, as noted there is a little bit of research still needed tongue.png There's some old school Space Hulk genestealers too. Do I get a technical exemption because a fair few aren't grey, or that I didn't build the pile? sweat.gif The models should give an indicator as to the age of the collection, so there has been a fair few new models since but I can expand into these when I earn them by painting models msn-wink.gif

 

As if this wasn't all lucky enough, I always wanted to have plenty of gribbles on the table with Warrior support and I am not short of either biggrin.png

Oof! Good luck, do you have a scheme that can be replicated using contrasts? They've sped up my nid painting by an order of magnitude!

I've developing my scheme now, but I'm not too worried. I reckon I can assembly line them ok over time and it's not like I'll need to paint every one... right? :P

Most of these l got second hand, and have some sort of paint that I have yet to do-over.

~40 gargoyles

~40 gaunts

3 raveners

30 genestealers

a tyrannofex

a trygon

3 warriors

a neurothrope

a tyrannocyte spore pod

I generally tend to play smaller games and have not needed my cheap, disposable troops. I painted about a dozen genestealers and ripper bases early and have been using them alongside half a dozen carnifex and some exocrines.

I doubt I will ever have much cause to use the flying rats known as gargoyles, but a man can dream.

Corruption is our armor. Infection is our weapon. Immortality is our reward.

I’ve been on a painting frenzy over the past few months, so I only have a few models left:

Hive Tyrant with wings

Hive Guard

I’ll also get an Exocrine when they come back in stock

I forgot to count my Space Hulk box... oh well, not like a few more stealers make a big difference to the mountain tongue.png I should be getting the hobby supplies I need to finish my scheme tomorrow so then I can start reducing the pile smile.png
