I was doing really good until last year about this time. My dad gave me an old box of stuff that he had been collecting. stuff with no real game purpose, just on sale or something. he handed me a 24"*18"*12" box full of mini's. so what was probably 50-60% painted has dropped to well below 25%.

POLL DESCRIPTION

darclegion muses:

I have painted close to approximately 6,000 15mm minis out of a total collection of approximately 9,500 15mm collection, and about approximately 1,350 28mm minis out of a 4,000 28mm collection, in my collection over the past 15 years of collecting.

So I have painted roughly 55% of my collection, at a average quality of 7 on a 1-10 scale.

Of course, I have bought from ebay.com, I buy prepainted armies from various companies from time to time, etc., and I've also sent armies away to be painted to a few painting companies. That's why my collection is so large.

I've done more painting than I have done playing, as well as buying more terrain and gaming pieces to play games with. I guess in a way, I am preparing for old age… every time I set the paint brush down… and say I'm never going to paint again and just game… I find myself surrounded by hundreds of minis a few months later. I think I've painted everything I want to…

I have to sneak minis packages in and hide them from my wife. Luckily, she thinks it's funny and laughs. The problem is that I also discovered 28mm… I no longer paint the super-easy 15mm… and I paint rather good, I never will say that I'm a pro, I think I paint (on a scale of 1-10) on a average of upper 7. I also have repainted a few figures I bought on ebay.com, but didn't count those.

My wife thinks I've totally lost all my marbles…

What about you?

So - how much of your collection of painted miniatures have you personally painted? (Pre-paints, pro-painted and re-paints don't count.)
