The Caffeinated Penguin

musings of a crackpot hacker

So, yeah, that happened…

So, back in Rhode Island, I used to game with a group which included my mom, and we played a lot of 40k. Soon after I left, Flames of War became the new hotness, and they switched over to playing that.

Fast forward 5 years, and the group is losing some players. One guy is moving to one of the Carolinas this year, and my folks are moving to Florida next year. As a result, everyone is downsizing and reorganizing. My mom gave all of her FoW stuff to one of the guys in the group, because she was always meh on WWII. When she mentioned that she and I were going to be playing 40K again (and, as they will be doing the snowbird thing and spending summers up with my family in New York, we will continue to do so for the forseeable future), he said “well, why don’t you take all my 40K stuff, because I don’t want to play it anymore”.

Again, since my mom is leaving for Florida, she’s downsizing, so all of that stuff came to my house. He wanted the figure cases back, so I unpacked it all on to a table until I can make up more figure cases for it myself. So, I took a picture:

A lot of minis.

A lot of minis.

There are large forces of Eldar, Dark Eldar, Imperial Guard, and Orks. There are smaller forces of Chaos, Tau and Necrons. The Necrons are about 1500 points, and the IG list is going to be somewhere in the ballpark of 4500 points once I finish writing it up.

Not pictured are my Dark Angels (6000 points) and Tau (4500 points, though I’ll likely move some of my Tau to the other Tau force to balance them out), as well as my mom’s Sisters of Battle (approx 3000 points, IIRC) and a box of Blood Angels from that same player that didn’t fit in my Mom’s car.

So, yeah, I have some painting to do.

All points are 1p40K values, not GW, BTW.
