The other day when my mind was wandering I was adding up figures for an army, then started estimating figures for all of my armies. I used to think that those who decided to build an entire chapter of space marines were kind of crazy. But with my current armies for 40K, I have around 650 painted figures, not counting vehicles. If you add in the two Tau armies, parts of CSM and a marine army that I sold there's probably another 150+ figures, for around 800 figures total that I've built and painted for 40K, 80% of a chapter (maybe 75% if you count all the support guys like techmarines). Oof. If you add in WHFB, I'd be over the mark (those goblins add up fast). Of course I don't think I could have stuck with one army, much less one chapter that whole time, but I no longer think that those who do are crazy. Or at least they're no crazier than I am!
I also have some random hobby progress to share:
