Breakdown in self control

In a moment of weakness, I ordered the start to a Greek army a couple weeks ago.  Yesterday in the mail I received the first batch of my 44 arriving figures.  So far, this plan to limit my purchases isn’t working.

Of course, Black Tree Design is having their half price sale ending soon, so I jumped on it before I fully thought it through.  I ended up paying almost exactly a dollar a figure even after shipping and handling, so that’s how I’m justifying it to myself.

My plan is tomorrow to go through all the figures I have, roughly organize them into themes and count them.  That way I can keep track of how many I have and make sure that my painted to bought ratio is good.

On a positive note, I’ve got my first “order” from someone else coming my way.  I’ll be painting some modern 20mm plastics.

What is this all about?

Welcome to Mini Painting for Free. Do you have way too many miniatures like I do? Send me one or two! I'll paint them up, photograph them, post about them and then send them back. The best part? All you have to pay is shipping to get the miniatures to me in New Hampshire, USA. I'll supply the time, paint and the return postage. Have something you want me to work on? Send me an email at and let me know.
