Upon some reflection and the realization that I was starting to acquire multiples of the same model, I decided to try and sort out my collection and tally what I had and what I had painted.
I got the idea from Anthony at the Lead Collector in his post here.
After my last post Anthony told me that he got the idea from You Magnificent Bastards. The link to the label of 100% painted Challenge is here. I only watched the first two videos to get an idea of what he was on about. Mainly I wanted to see what his spread sheet looked like.
Here is his. Part of his plan was to shift his percentages by selling off some of his stuff and commissioning others to be painted. It appears he also just did a strait model count, no "this counts as two" accounting.
My rough start to a spread sheet. My intent is to not only catalog painted but also models and manufacturer. Not sure if I'll bother to update with codes and sculptor information, though that would be nice. I don't want to get so bogged down in minutia that I completely stall.
The idea right now is to make a sheet for each genre and then break out by Manufacturer. So far I'm starting with Sci Fi themed stuff as it is a much newer and smaller part of my total collection. I haven't sexed up the sheet with colors and formatting yet. That will come later. I'm using Open Office Calc because I refuse to pay Microsoft extra for a suite of programs. I'm still stuck in the mindset when all that shit was bundled with your computer and it pisses me off to have to buy it separately.
That is all.
