Hi!

After nearly a decade of epic inactivity I have finally mustered up the courage to sit down and lay it all out there to finally answer to myself the eternal question. How much epic stuff do I ACTUALLY have.....

If you joined after 2005, the stories of the fabled primarchload are just that, stories. You probably thought it couldn't be true. As they say no pictures no proof! And I agree.

Unlike last time where I just took some pictures of how one army looked nicely laid out on the table, this time I decided to make a picture journal of the task. The whole thing started with all of it in boxes on the table and me getting it all out as we go through a segment of it. It will end with a photo expose of my largest and best painted armies and terrain. :)

The pictures that follow chronicle 14 to 18 hours of work across 7 days. This was just unpacking, organizing and fixing stuff. I have yet to hit the "real army boxes".

So without further blabbing, I present for your viewing pleasure....

THE PRIMACHLOAD

Image

It took over THREE hours to get all this out of storage and I still didn't success to find all of it that day....

Hi!

As I walk around the table I am flooded with memories of the golden age of epic gaming...

Image

Since those days I have made a point of keeping original boxes for histories sake....

Image

The bulk of the primarchload are in these tackle boxes. Some due to the metal weigh in excess of 20 pounds! I loose count showed about 60 such boxes....

Hi!

its physically impossible for everything to fit on the table, so I grab what I can to place them on...

Image

Hmmm.... primarch must REALLY like guns! 4 double rifle cases and several pistol cases (one shown).....

Image

This is only known as "the epic santa claus bag", what wonders does it hold? Probably a hernia, it weighs more than 30lbs maybe as high as 40lbs.!

Hi!

I literally have things in not only boxes, but sometimes the boxes they came in (address removed to protect the identity of those whom I have made rich over the years...)

Image

The amount of second edition cards I have is to put it mildly, ridiculous....

Image

..and small boxes with painted stuff are everywhere....

Hi!

Hey Primarch, what up with all the "boxes" pictures, I wanna SEE CONTENTS!!

Patience young grasshoppers, all in due time.....

There was a phase where I started picking up "pristine" boxes of very nice things....

Image

I own unpunched sets of most of the original stuff......

Image

I own tons of terrain, although the true treat will be at the end with a full layout of some of my pride and joys. These need some loving soon I think...

Hi!

While I will take more detailed of army box contents later, to give you an idea....

DISCLAIMER TO LEGION 4: I humbly throw myself upon the mercy of L4 for whom things painted in non-tactical colors are an executable affront! Yes, L4, I will show at some point my famous LIME COLORED THUNDERBOLT AND MARAUDERS!!

No worries L4 I will get them repainted at some point.... before I die.... ;)

Image

I think L4 will approve of my more recent SM pieces... I hope..gulp! :)

Image

The IG will be the showcase army towards the end, since its nicely painted AND IN TACTICAL COLORS!!

Hi!

As any gamer, I have tons of unpainted, TONS. Since I think taking pictures of unpainted stuff is kinda boring, I'll just show a few and concentrate more on painted things (albeit sometimes poorly painted ;( ).

Image

Lotsa eldar to paint....

Image

More IG (and grey knight land raiders), mostly Forgeworld pieces....

Hi!

Epic Santa Claus Bag you say? That's several hours all on its own.....

Image

While terrain gets it's own section some views. I store them in storage bins of 25-30 gallons each.

Image

Image

Image

The real cool stuff is at the bottom and you'll just have to wait to see that. It will be worth the wait. ;)
