So i figured i would try and squeeze in a little collectors segment here. All of us have bought exactly what we needed for x army list. I'm so guilty of this its not even funny. What happens soon after, at least for me is I start finding little guys I don't have and boom I'm full blown buying stuff up. Then the collector part of me kicks in...... my wallet screams and I end up with even more minis. Is that a bad thing? Well if you ask my wife she rolls her eyes. If you ask me or some of the guys i game with you see excitement.
Generally when researching old minis the first place I go Is SOLegends. There is just a plethora of knowledge and ranges for you to view. Most of the time they are complete other times you get partial information and zero pics. If your lucky you stumble across a collectors guide someone has taken there time to do. Thank goodness for these folks. They always seem to find stuff i miss. Here is a great guide I found for 40k Squats Squat collectors Guide . The next thing i do is look for blogs and pics of minis for that army. After that the $$$ flies out of my wallet.......
I hope this helps out those collectors out there. Or maybe inspired some folks to just check out some old minis they have never seen.
Good luck on whatever army you collect,

Well i still have not received all of my new toys. However i decided to go ahead and post up some pics of what i have received over the past couple of weeks. These are the Squats I have chosen to put into the army so far but that is always subject to change when you get your hands on another cool model.
Oh yeah sorry for the bad pics. I'm trying to get better with the equipment i have. Be patient it will get better in time.
40K Squat Engineers with shotguns, Manticore Turret and Gun Emplacement.
Heavy Mortar, Thudd Gunns and 2 squads of 10 Squats.
Manticore Turret, Gun Emplacement, Thudd Guns, 3 squads of 10 Squats, Command Squad and Lord Commissar
I'm still waiting on my Hades Breaching Drills, 1 more Heavy Mortar and my Vendettas. I can feel my patience dwindling........ Oh well just have to wait another day and cross my fingers the rest comes in soon.

So i decided to get my display board and basses done first. The idea is to make it look like cracked tiles similar to a ceramic mosaic. Here is what i have so far. I used a tea tray as the base and foam board for the insert. I made my template then cut almost all the holes with a whole saw. The ovals i had to hand cut....
