Well, it's about a third of the way through the year and I am not doing too badly on the Pledge for this year.
What the heck is "The Pledge" you ask? It's a promise to do my best to paint more minis than I actually receive in a year. I usually don't do very well at it. This year has been pretty good so far, especially in the matter of terrain pieces.
But that is about to take a MAJOR hit. You see, about 18 months ago I backed this little Kickstarter for Reaper Bones. And, um, well... I have a couple of hundred or so minis that are going to arrive any time now. Those pieces are not yet figured into the Pledge Count - I only count things that I actually receive in to my hands in a year.
This will be arriving:
- Infantry: 113
- Monsters: 15
- Vehicles: 1
- Terrain: 34
LOST VALLEY EXPANSION
- Infantry: 24
- Monsters: 10
- Vehicles: 0
- Terrain: 2
- Snake Cultists (Infantry): 6
- Ape Attack (Infantry?): 3
- Hill Giants (Monsters): 2
- King of the Jungle (Monster): 1
- Frost Giant Raiders (Monsters): 3
That's a total haul of 146 "Infantry," 31 Monsters, 36 pieces of Terrain, and one Vehicle (a pig-drawn pumpkin cart). Some I will probably try to resell, as I am not interested in all of it. But even so, that's a LOT of minis. And they really don't work much for most of my wargaming needs. THey do help with a lot of RPG needs though.
And I really wish I had bought more, honestly. The Fire Giant Huntsman, Hill Giant Hunter and Dire Lion, Blacktooth Terror, Mossbeard Treeman, and the Darkreach Expansion...
I may have a problem. Is there a 12 Step Program for this?
