The Workshop

Okay so I emailed the loving wife and asked her to take some photos of the workshop. I figured I would post the pics up on here so you all can get a good look at what I have at my disposal (well for when I get back), and maybe you all can help me to decide what factions are gonna be what. Now keep in mind that my two primary armies are my Menoth and Khador. But I have such a plethora of all the factions (Cygnar excluded they are the wife's but she included pics of them as well.) I figured I can get your take on things. Which armies should be my Foodmachine and which should be my new spanky Breast Cancer Brawl army? so without further a due. Here are my minis to date. Now in the time leading up to my return to the states I will make various comments on ideas and army compositions I am toying with after it is decided which army becomes what.
 The Workbench as you can see it has all sorts of various models in various stages of construction.
 This is a close up of the workbench and some of my future projects hanging on the wall there.
  These are my poor poor Iron Kingdoms Minis and my Lot of Privateers, they don't see much love since well I mainly got them out of a need to collect not really to play them all that much. and in the back corner is my very fledgling Trollbloods. I have big plans for those, well additions I am going to make to them.
 Here we have the yet another shelf space of minis that adorn the room. Cygnar, some menoth, mercs, cryx, and some of my skorne.
 A close up of about half of my Menoth and Khador for some reason Kate(the wife) didnt take a pic of the game table that has the rest of these armies on it. (it was the last game I got to play before I deployed.)
 All that is the very small amount of Cryx that I have, I plan on expanding them, I just have no clue as to what direction to take them. maybe you all can help me out on that one?
Last but not least, a close up of a quarter of Kate's cygnar, the rest of them are in their Battlefoam bags getting ready to head out a pick up game at the LGS.

Well there you have it Folks a portion of what I have but I think you are all getting the idea. So how are you all my avid readers going to help me out? well lets help me decide what to do with which army? That's the HARD part. There are a lot more minis, with more pics to come as I convince the wife to pull stuff out of our bags and set them up on the table for display and take some pics. Now as you can see the larger part of my collection is unpainted, there is a reason for that. After it is decided (and I get back) the painting begins.

Updates from afar...

Well to prove that I didn't just create this blog and then dropped it here is the deal my general viewers. Well this blog was started while I was stationed at Ft. Irwin, California. Then I got PCS(moved to a different duty station), shortly there after. Upon arriving at my new duty station (Ft. Hood, Texas), I was send to a rapid deployment unit. So within a few short months I was deployed. Which is where I am at now. When I am returning is anyone's guess, but since we are in "Draw Down" phase in Iraq, I  imagine it will be rather shortly, hopefully by Christmas. So since I have ad all this time to think about my armies, their make up, and how often I use each one I have come up with this. I will build and paint 2 general purpose armies, I.E. just stuff I use the most often. Then I shall have my Food Machine Army, and My Breast Cancer Brawl Army.
I think that it will be a nice little under taking, and hopefully after its all said and done ( I am giving myself a short 3 months to accomplish this task), this site will be a lot better. Once that Is all complete I will try and post various entries on painting and whatever model is being a pain in the butt that week. Well hopefully you haven't lost faith in the Ol' Jack Factory, its still around, just the employee is off doing the day time job.

If you want your warmchine fix and can't wait for me to get back well you can always check out Gareson's stuff, he always has something new and spanky on his blog. Anyhow till I return, I say to you, Play like you gotta pair.
