Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

One Thousand, Five Hundred and Three

Here’s the latest complete picture of all miniatures I have painted to date.

The number is is just over 1,500. This represents miniatures from the 1990s through to this year. I have placed them on the 32 tablescapes tiles I’ve painted, and those sit on top of a table tennis table.

Click to see my previous group shot of miniatures.

Here’s a closer view of the whole table:

There’s a few gaps between some of the miniatures, which is nice as I still have hundreds more to paint.

This was the set up before I added the models:

Behind the tiles but in front of the old Warhammer castle is a set of tablescapes dungeon tiles:

In the image above you can see the tiles laid out, with only a few models on them. Behind that is the Gloomtide Shipwreck, and just visible to the left of the shipwreck are some Prussian ships from Dystopian Wars, a defunct steampunk naval combat game.

I put a collection of metal hero and villain models just outside the dungeon, behind the ruined tower.

The Warhammer Quest models sit in their 1990s enclosure, in all their technicolor brilliance. It was a different age back then.

My Blood Bowl teams occupy a pitch’s worth of space and then some. These range from painted last year (the dwarfs) to painted over 20 years ago (the undead).

The science fiction side of things has never been much of a focus for me, but there’s a few models done now, mostly within the last couple of years.

This is about the only time I regret selling off my old fantasy armies, 8 or 9 all told. It would have doubled the number of models here. Although maybe that’s just as well since I don’t have two table tennis tables!

My SAGA and Lord of the Rings armies are the only ones left; Warhammer and Epic Space Marines armies are just a memory now.

The Rohan army is probably my biggest now in terms of model count.

The final shot shows a small Mordor army, with the Imbrian Arts orcs and goblins behind them, and some Storm of Sigmar models too.

I hope you enjoyed this trip around my miniatures collection. This took almost 7 hours to set up, so my next look will happen once I get to 2,000 models.

      Keeping a Magic card collection under control is like a full-time job!

    That’s a very nice collection indeed, Dave! Thanks for taking the time to put them all out, although I would imagine you’re still putting them away! 🙂

    Madly impressive, Dave – and one hell of a lot of work in so many ways – including the setup and breakdown for the photos!

      Yes, it took over 6 hours in terms of set up and packdown!

    It’s impressive seeing them all laid out. Mini’s is about the only thing I’ve horded (and books) so thankfully the only thing I ever sold were my epic armies. The amount you’ve painted is superb though!

      I definitely prefer the term “collector” to “shopaholic”!
