Every now and then I have a crazy idea, but eventually it passes and I get back on with my life. This week I decided that I would sell my Bonesplitterz army. But why? Well I have quite a lot of armies for Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000, so some of them rarely get played, or I don't enjoy playing.
I was considering taking my Bonesplitterz to Tomorrow Burns, the tournament in March being run by Chris Tomlin from The Black Sun podcast, but to make the matched play legal, I would need to make a few changes, and with all the other projects I am working on, I just wouldn't have time.
I then thought about whether they'd get much use at all, seeing as I also have my Nurgle Daemons (more on them later), my Slaanesh Daemons (which I think I'll be taking to the South Coast GT in April) and my Work in Progress Fimir force (which will be my main army once they are done). So with that in mind, it was time to say goodbye to the Bonesplitterz. At time of typing I have a few interested parties, but if you're interested, drop me a line in the comments on on Twitter (@Binxhobby)
With a new version of Warhammer 40,000 rumoured to be coming in the summer, and the current story line advances hinting at this theory, it got me thinking about what other armies I maybe should sell. I'd already considered my Nurgle Daemons as they haven't been very competitive in AoS, but have decided to hold on to them, not only because I could expand them with other Nurgle aligned Chaos units in the future, but also because they can be used in Warhammer 40k.
But what of my Dark Eldar, Tyranids, Imperial Guard, Chaos, Necrons and Deathwing forces? Well the first two, I have no intention of getting rid of, and the rest I have tried to sell before, but with the unknowns of the future of 40k, any of these armies could get a run out under the new rules. So no knee jerk reactions on these just yet, I'll wait and see what happens with the rules, the meta and what new stuff appears befroe making any decision. The chances are unless I find someone local to take them off me, or meet someone at an event, the postage and packing costs would put me off bothering. So again, if you fancy one of my armies, let me know.
So what have I been up to whilst contemplating selling armies? Well the Fimir project continues. Firstly I have added to extra pieces to my bases, half the bases now have some kind of dwarf paraphernalia on them, hopefully this will add some pizazz to them once they are painted. (scroll past the really long picture please)
I've also continued work on the Beetle which will become my Thundertusk, covering up some of the Sylvaneth detail with greenstuff fur. It looks a bit like a lawn on its back at the moment, but will hopefully good once it is painted.
I finally got some undercoat on the first of the Lesser Fimir, and will start painting very soon, I just need to pick up some new paints.
This weekend, well Saturday, I will be in Bournemouth for Partners In Chaos, the doubles tournament being run by The Age of Sigbrah guys. Lets see if we can being home a trophy, winning, or the fabled Monty trophy! I will report back in one or two weeks depending how tired I am!
