two years ago), I had a lot of Rogue Trader models that I actually purchased from the store in the 80's and 90's. However I had ZERO Warhammer Fantasy models. In the 90's I slowly replaced original purchases with newer metal models and then the plastics. I gave away all of my old fantasy stuff.
When I decided I suffered a bout of madness in those years and wanted to rebuild those old collections, I set about tracking down the old collections - both my Warhammer Empire army (built from the 'transition' period post third edition and pre fourth edition models) and Undead army were still with the guys I gave them to and they happily returned them (they moved on to plastic models too and these armies were both stored away). My Dwarves and Orcs are still with the friend I gave them to, but he wants to keep them to have something to field against me from that era. The Skaven and Chaos armies were sold on eBay, which must have been great for someone because the prices were not what we see today!
I was taking inventory of my current fantasy stock yesterday (thus the prompt for this post). I now have a fairly large collection of Warhammer Fantasy models:
Bretonnians (1000pts - all Foundry modern casts of old models - five models painted)
Chaos (2000pts - around 2000pts are painted)
Dark Elves (Mengil Manhide's Regiment of Renown)
Dwarves (3000pts - all of four models painted)
Empire (2000pts - all painted)
Slann (1000pts - ten models painted)
Undead (2250pts - 1400pts painted)
These point costs can vary greatly with the choice of characters and magic items and would likely be higher since I usually choose such things conservatively. I also have a handful of monsters (like a Chimera and Giant), random additional races (Goblins and Skaven for Chaos warbands), and random humans (Adventurers, Militia, and Villagers).
Still missing from the list of armies I want are Orcs and Goblins, Skaven, and Wood Elves. The High Elves can stay on their island (not sure why I never liked them).
I have the attention span of a small dog (SQUIRL!) and tend to switch back and forth between armies. I'm currently working on Slann (pics soon) but there's no telling what's up next!
