6MMRPC 2.1 - Prepping

Hey y'all,
I've been working a ton of extra shifts at work as money is very tight (hence this challenge being originally developed last year). I'm late on posting, and I honestly have not painted a damn thing yet haha. Unless you count spray undercoating all the stuff I've assembled over the last 3 weeks!

Everything assembled so far.

My last order before the challenge. Legartha from the show "Vikings" from the Dice Bag Lady. She'll make an awesome shield maiden addition to my Viking forces. She's been assembled, sprayed and is waiting for paint! Also an artizan cowgirl.

Here's some kit bashed warrior monks/wizards I built for either Lion Rampant, Dragon Rampant, Frostgrave, or Mordheim.

Over the last 3 weeks I've assembled over 200 figures. Add that to the 300ish I already had assembled and primed, and I've got over 500 figures to choose from throughout the challenge! More updates coming soon!


  1. And I thought I had a lot of figures on my desk! :)

    Is that a Hulk figure I see in the bottom right corner? What game is that for?!

    1. The Hulk figure is a Heroclix figure that's been removed from its base and will be retouched up. I'm not 100% sure what rule system I'm going to use for my superhero games yet, but I'm leaning towards Pulp Alley or one of the Song of Blades and Heroes family of rulesets.

    2. Nice! I have the Pulp Alley rules set myself, but have yet to use them. I'm having a bit of difficulty sorting out the combat (though I'm sure it's just me, I'm awful with rules and honestly only buy them to play them wrong). I'm hoping to get in on a game using the rules at Historicon next month, I think if I have someone familiar with the rules show me how it works first hand I'll get the hang of it. It's really jumped up in popularity right now and seems like a perfect rules set for me.

  2. Don't let yourself get dispirited David - Remember, the way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. Just small chunks, a few at a time, and you will get there eventually!

  3. I expect all this lot finished by the end of the Challenge!

    You have your orders.

  4. ... You are in a worse situation than I am o_O.
    I agree with Mad Tin Hatter, finish them a unit or miniature at a time. Your pile most likely won't be completely gone at the end of the challenge, but you would at least have made a serious dent in it.
    Good luck and hang in there.

  5. Mountain, indeed! I would definitely need to break that up into smaller chunks, as that's an intimidating pile to have staring you in the face! Maybe hide some of it under a towel or something until you can make a dent in it... :-P
