I don't count stuff in boxes. Or stuff I haven't decided what colour to paint. It helps me sleep at night.


I thankfully just have the devs and Cassor built but not painted.


I'm not going to go into the unbuilt list.

My eldar and skaven unbuilt actually outnumber my power armour unbuilt I think...

Partially painted (i.e. more than primed):

  • Stormraven
  • Land Raider Redeemer
  • Baal Predator
  • 3 Razorbacks
  • Rhino
  • Sanguinary Priest
  • Karlaen
  • Astorath
  • 5 or 10 Scouts
  • 10 Assault Terminators
  • Contemptor Dreadnought
  • DC Dreadnought
  • DC Chaplain
  • Librarian
  • TDA Librarian
  • Captain
  • Command Squad
  • Bikes


  • 15 Death Company
  • Tactical Terminators
  • 0-5 scouts
  • Techmarine
  • Drop Pod
  • Rhino?
  • 5 tactical marines


  • 30 Tactical marines
  • 2-3 Captains
  • Librarian
  • Chaplain
  • Sanguinary Priest
  • Sternguard


  • Assault marines (really just need to scrounge for meltas for them, I think everything else is done)

Then I have a Stormtalon and a few C:SM characters from before I decided on BAs that I might convert.  The Stormtalon I'll probably just paint to match my army because it'll look good, and I can use it if I ever field them as vanilla marines, I guess.  I should see if I can by Khorne Red by the gallon...


EDIT: I also want to build and paint up some better objective markers.  A number painted on a base works, but I think I'll take the banners from B@C and the BoP box once I get it and paint numbers on them, plant them in a base and use those.

Seriously, I have never fielded BA tactical marines and I still don't regret buying B@C because those models were such a joy to build and they look so great.  I just cannot freaking wait to do it all again with some mk.III!!

I honestly feel like nothing of mine is DONE except 5 Devastators (Lascannons) and 5 Assault Terminators (Claws).


If I had access to a big old ultrasonic cleaner then ~50% would go in there and be repainting from scratch.


The other ~45% percent just have details missing.

Ok I'll post my shame to try and motivate me to paint more.


Almost finished painting:

5x Scouts


Ready for undercoating:



Awaiting assembly:

2x Quad Mortars


Still in box:

2x Sanguinary Guard

2x Drop Pods

1x Archangels Orbital Intervention Force

1x Sanguinary Priest (the old metal one)


...huh? What? I'm missing some things here surely? My memory is awful and I must have forgotten a load of stuff. I also have a boat load of old BA models I need to update to match my more modern painting (better bases and washes and whatnot) but they are too numerous to count.

4x Grav bikes w/ MM attack bike

1x Vindicare Assassin

1x Cassor

1x Jump Libby

1x DC Chaplain

1x Jump Priest

1x Corbulo

1x Storm Raven

1x Drop Pod

1x Vindicator

1x Land Raider

I am also working on possibly a 5 man squad of Gunslinger Van Vets. Only have weapons picked out at the moment.


I also have bits and bobs that can probably put together another squad of marines. No plans for them at the moment.
