Bite The Bullet

Over the weekend I was downstairs in the Dunn-geon and looked at how much untainted hobby material I have. Quick answer - Too much.

So I've added to my New Years resolutions and committed to not buying any untainted plastic, metal or resin models in 2014. Bold call but it needs to be done or the modelling equivalent of the 1980's EEC butter mountain will never get any smaller.

My last purchases were all in 2013 and I've now gone 14 days without buying models - only 351 days to go.  These last purchases have now arrived - Savage Orcs, two boxes of Demigryphs and 20 old metal Corsairs. So Trade Me, eBay, Kickstarter and all web stores are off limits for untainted models.

Of course I am leaving myself some outs - Forgeworld Horus Heresy Death Guard and Emperors Children specific models are still fair game as are terrain pieces by Tabletop World. Everything else is verboten.

I'll let you know if (when) I lapse.


  1. untainted??? is that the process where you mark all your models with nurgle colours?

  2. Pfft, this'll last until the Dwarf prereleases...
