The Shoemaker's Children

I have 1500 points of painted Blood Ravens.

It seems odd that after 4 years of painting (and on seven different occasions, playing) 40k that only now I  have enough of my own painted models to field a normal sized game.  I have painted untold thousands of points of models for others, and I have painted hundreds of points of my own for other 40k armies, but only now do I finally have 1500 I can throw down fully painted.
I'm just (sniff) so happy.

The models shown here don't actually add up to 1500... it's somewhat more actually.  It just gives me some list options.It was the vehicles that finally pushed the number up above the magic mark.

Now, to get 30 points of painted Menites!  Or Legion!  Or 1500 Orks!  Or 1500 Ordo Hereticus!  Or 1500 Eldar!  And to all the people for whom I've painted, I really am grateful.  Besides the monetary, I love the idea of models I've painted seeing battle throughout the world.

The shoemaker's children are often shoeless, but not today!
