Thread: How many miniatures do you own?

  1. #1

    Default How many miniatures do you own?

    As I continue to make room for the new minis we buy, I started wondering how many the average WOW player owns.

    I have everyone of the WW1 ones. I'm still waiting on Amazon to send me Series Four though...

    Yeah, mine might have gotten a little out of hand - I had to sell off a few units recently, so at present maybe 60 or so, mainly in flights of 6 from the same squadron or Jasta. Four more lots of 6 on the go though, plus a few Skytrex kit builds. Oops.

    Actually, I forgot the two extra DR1's I repainted with Dom's (brilliant) decals...

    I have 17 and the West Play Mat... and I started playing a month ago.

    I'd have more, if DVII's and DR1's were still available! I'm trying to put a hold on purchases until the holidays - we'll see how long I last.

    Holiday list includes:
    Pfalz Hotzlem
    Barker Snipe
    East Play Mat
    Deluxe Set
    At least 1 balloon
    and eagerly awaiting Set 5!

    I have 93 ready to fly.
    31 WoW and 62 Skytrex & Reverisco, not counting unbuilt.
    All WWI

    I think you should add some higher catagories to the poll. If you've only collected all the WWI sets (as I did) you're up to 50 planes + 2 balloons.

    (And that's assuming you are asking how many WoW minis we own. If you are asking how many miniatures of any type we own, my answer would be !)

  12. #12

    Default

    Only 42 but 4 on order. 2 of these are Reverisco and five Skytrex. The rest are W.o.W.

    Afraid I'm in the WOW Anonymous category , went a bit overboard last year when I found a source that had a limited number of the official models at US prices. About a third of them are Skytrex and Reverisco kits.

    Hey Larry. I was considering going higher but wasn't sure if that would overdo the poll options. I considered adding a 41-50 and a 50+, but decided not to. I was thinking of only WOW minis when I made the poll and completely forgot about the other minis many have. Still, I think the poll results are getting the answers I was looking for. LOL!!

    40+

    Almost full set of Minis Series (From Series I to Series IV. I don't have only Goering airplane ) + 2 Wings of War Miniatures WWI Balloon Buster sets.

    The number of owned minis is inversely proportional to the time I can devote to play with my friend!

    I get at least 4 from each series, so I have one of each plane. lately I added to that by getting a second plane of each style. Am trying not to buy everything.

    If I had a good way to store and transport I might have more. I have all my planes in their individual boxes and put them in a bigger box to carry. Now I need a bigger box. But I am looking at how others store and carry.

    Check out the Aerodrome accessories in a few weeks. They should have a solution to your (and my) problem by then.

    I'm in the 50+ group. Have all of the WoW miniatures plus extras for repaints. Also 10 built white metal kits, two under construction right now and more unbuilt. Me thinks I have a problem. Counted last night 75(includes WoW mini's and completed kits) plus 2 Balloons.

    Oh dear it looks like I really need help. There's no catagory for 100+.

    I've let it get out of control again haven't I?

    I can't help it if I'm over-worked and horrendously anal about tracking down accurate serial numbers when doing British sheets.... On the plus side, I seem to have figured out the PRO's indexing system for WWI squadron logs, which can't possibly end well. Looks like a few of them are downloadable at slightly rip-off prices - might try a sample tomorrow to check they're really what I'm after (should be; the Aussie ones were most helpful when doing 4th AFC, and the British ought to be the same format) in which case a £2.50 day trip to London and an afternoon in Kew may be in my future....

    Well...for WoW I have 56 and for DoW I have 24. I'm including 2 balloons and the Deluxe set (version 1)...all are strictly "official" WoW/DoW models. Also have all the boosters and the play mats. Guess I'm fortunate to afford all this.

    I've only bought Nexus miniatures for WWI:

    24 Triple Entente


    5x Camel, 4x Nieuport (29 Sqn), 6x SE.5a (56 Sqn), 3x Snipe, 3x Spad XIII & 3x RE8 (13 Sqn)


    15 Central Powers*


    (4x Dr.I, 3x Ufag C1, 2x D.III, 3x D.Va & 3x D.VII)
    *There would be more but for the British supply issues

    ...But I have gone over to 1:600 for WoW: DoW as I wanted to create large formations and Big Wings


    (24x Bf109's, 16x Bf110's, 36 He111's & 30 Ju88 vs 26 Spitfires & 28 Hurricanes)

    I couldn't afford to do that with Nexus and I definitely couldn't wait

    I'm just getting started and on a budget of an allowance $8 a week, I get 1 plane every 2 weeks or so.

    More than I thought. 37 if my math is correct

    3 DIII 3 DVa 3 DVII 2 DrI 3 Pfalz 2 Ufag 2 Rumpler 2 Roland


    3 Se5 3 Camel 3 Nu17 2 Snipe 2 Spad 2 RE8 DH4 Breuget

    No doubles. All Nexus and 4 kids to play with.


    Still waiting for the revised deluxe set.

    Okay, now I don't feel so bad for have all the series 1 through 3 WWI aircraft and one of each balloon. I prefer to buy my planes in a full series at once. That way I don't depend on 'hit or miss' at the LGS or online shopping. I figure if I am going to spend the money anyway it might as well be all at once and budget for that purpose.

    I only started collecting after WWII came out. I have since gone back and bought about 15 WW1 planes....I wish I had gotten into it sooner. I look forward to reissue of series one and two.

    On average I have 1 each of all the WW1 minatures and 2 Baloons. In WW2 I mainly have 2 of each of the ones I need/like. This Nexus only. I have about 25 planes of other manufactures.

    I'm in the WOW Anonymous category as well. My wife states I can't buy any more until we get back from Az.

    So I'm biting the bullet on this one. Now you know why we have to check our ammo.

    Yup, I'm a 100+ guy too; I'm an addict ..... sort-of.

    20 are WoW/Nexus; the others are scratch-built.

    Six "regular" players and six "sometimes" players (our gaming group now totals 12) use these minis ........ so it's not entirely fair to label me an addict.

    Because I "discovered" WoW, have a comfortable play area and have a modelling passion, I took the jobs of primary host and chief "procurer". I and two others are the "Rules Weenies". A few, including me, also like keeping the statistics/records.

    None of us are true "collectors" or "historians"; rather we all love a good game and the friendship. WoW is our current game for the next several years I suspect.

    In recent years (the past 20) we have played Battle Mech, Lord Of the Rings, D&D miniatures and Pirates. All of which have neat figures/ships. Fortunately I was not the primary "procurer" for all of these.

    It feels good to get the sorid story out in the open.

    I have 46 planes and three balloons, and two additional Albatross D.Vas are waiting for repainting. Soon I will order both mats and the new Deluxe set, but what I really need is gaming company... WoW is so irritating rare here in Finland. :/

    Will do, although I clearly need to dig some more - have found the combat reports, which are obviously interesting reading, but for decal-making what I really want are the war diaries, which it turns out I've not found yet....

    [Edit] Looks like I have found them now (albeit not described as war diaries, which explains why my original searches didn't work....) but they don't have any download option at all. Hmm, time for a look at Megabus....

    Dom. got any idea of where I can find info on WW!. flight logs. I am scratching about with a few poor pictures. Went to look at the Ball collection but no flight log book there either. Trying to honour a promise I made to the Col. back in the spring.

    Logbooks were generally kept by the pilot or family afaik, so frankly could be anywhere - his combat reports will be on file in the PRO, but there's no single repository for logbooks.

    [Edit:] Have just had a quick search, and rapidly came across "Albert Ball's logbook has never been found" so scratch that one....
