How Many Unpainted Minis Do You Own?

How many unpainted miniatures do you own? How long does it take you to paint a mini? What are the chances that you will ever finish painting them all? Are there any that you have no interest in painting?

I probably have hundreds of unpainted minis. Many are Reaper Bones minis that my daughter paints. 0% chance they will ever all be painted.

I have probably 150-200 GW minis that are unpainted. I expect to make a sizeable dent this year as I finish off the majority of a KO fleet and the Night Haunt should be quick to paint. Otherwise, there is an unassembled box of Betrayal at Calth plus a few odds and ends. I doubt I will every 100% paint them, but I expect the KO and NH stuff will be painted in the next 6 months.

I also have Kingdom Death. I plan on painting it, but it will probably be a while.

Beyond that, I have random other minis that will probably never be 100% painted, but will always have minor progress made. Right now, I have twenty-four Knuckleduster minis as a change of pace that have been primed and will probably be quickly painted.

Let me check...

35-ish Space Marines plus one tank
10 Chaos dudes
30 Medieval dudes
350 minis from BattleLore (original)
3 lt from Descent 2.0
1 Gundam

I will get them all... One day. Currently in a painting block that could last years.

But I just finished stripping some dudes. So I could hope...

I've been avoiding minis that need to be painted in recent years. Unpainted minis that I still want to paint some day include all the Spartacus figures, including expansions, and Space Hulk 3rd. My genestealers are about 90% done, but my space marines need a lot of detail work. I have no intention of painting the figures for Zombies!!! The game doesn't get played often, and painting that many figures will either take forever or end up looking crappy.

I don't own a lot of minis-heavy games and no GW games. From my collection I'm only interested in painting Space Cadets (in progress) and War of the Ring. For the other unpainted minis-heavy games I own:

Imperial Assault would be paint-by-numbers because everyone knows Chewbacca is brown and Storm Troopers are black/white. There's no room for creativity, imo, for IP's like Star Wars so it would be boring. Whereas Frodo's vest could be brown, green, plum, or whatever; Han Solo's vest is blue.

Incursion has too many unique minis to even think about doing. But also a lot of fucking zombies in several sculpts. I think around the 70th zombie I'd wanna blow my brains out.

Castle Raveloft is possible but no plans to currently. All the game components are pretty bland so the unpainted minis kind of fit.

Edit: Forgot Cthulhu Wars. No interest in painting. The colors of the minis work as is.

Funny thread. Shellie and the spawn are upstairs painting Talisman figures right now. There are at least a couple dozen still unpainted. That's for one game, mind you.

I have a lot of primed and unpainted figures, from Talisman and Fury of Dracula. I also have Dungeonquest and Wiz-War, two more currently unpainted games that I think will end up painted before too long.

I do have several D&D adventure games, but I will likely leave those unpainted. They are colored plastic, and they look pretty alright on the table as is.

All of my minis are unpainted. Every last one. I did once assemble Cerberus to use with cyclades/Kemet crossover expansion.

Well, we have a couple fewer today than we had yesterday.

I thought I had things under control.
Until Cthulhu Wars...
I'm 1/2 way through Heroquest's expansions.
I'm 3/4 way through Mantic's Dungeon Saga.
I'm almost wrapped on Fury of Dracula.

The big three the linger in the gaming closet:
1) Cthulhu Wars
2) Conan
3) The Others (though I may not keep it)

Hundreds.
About an hour if I take my time.
Absolutely 0.00000%
All of them.

1) Decline to respond
2) it depends- anywhere from 15 minutes to about 2 hours per. I don’t like to spend a lot of time on them.
3) 0%
4) I don’t paint bubblegum machine style single piece board game minis. They aren’t worth the effort. I am however paining Grimm Forest- it’s just a few figures and they are really cute.

I have 2 unpainted Reapers kickstarters, both complete editions of BattleLore, my entirety of Arcadia Quest, the recent Zombicide: Green Horde sets, a third Reaper kickstarter on the way, many printed fleets for Man O War, and hundreds of Hot Wheels/Matchbox for Gaslands.

I am a slow painter and paint in batches, so it will take me a few hours per figure.

I doubt I will ever get these all painted. It is like asking if I will ever build all the plastic models I have.

I would like to paint all of them in an ideal world.

If I could find a way to sell off all of my unpainted miniatures and not get raped financially, I’d do it in a heartbeat.

It’s abundantly clear to me that my days of miniature wargaming are in the past.

I have too many. I have bought into Blood Bowl/Shadespire/40K + Age of Sigmar and some others... I have done well with Shadespire, finished that, and also Gorechosen.

For me I guess it takes on average 2 1/2 hours per figure give or take. If I do it in batches, a little bit less. I am slow and have shaky hands, so it's a bit more tricky for me.

I doubt I'll ever finish painting them, but that's ok.
