Because somebody has to start it.

Taking stock of what I had unpainted as of the new year:

One Daemon Princess
One Outrider Chaplain
Fifteen ten Assault Intercessors
Three six Eradicators
Thee Bladeguard Veterans
Two Three Invader ATVs*
One highly modular Gladiator tank
One slightly less modular Storm Speeder
Three Outriders
One Brood Lord
One Neurothrope
Eight Tyranid Warriors
Two five Zoanthropes
Three six Venomthropes
33 Hormagaunts
24 14 Termagaunts
14 Ripper Swarms
10 Gargoyles
Three Genestealers
One Spore Mine
One Trygon
One Biovore
Three Hive Guard
Five Raveners
Three Tyrant Guard
Two Carnifexes
One Exocrine
Two Tervigons
One Tyrannofex

I also plan to pick up the following when they are released / as commission payment / whenever GW takes their thumb out and starts shipping Tyranids out again:
Three One Ravener
One Maleceptor
One box of Heavy Intercessors
One Gravis Captain

I don't think that's an unrealistic pile to knock out in 2021.

What might throw a wrench in the plan is that seeing the new Slannesh models for AoS makes me suspect that Emperor's Children might have a TSons/DG style book on the way, and a wave of Noise Marines styled like those AoS models would be hard to pass up.

* In my defense I'd have never used an Apothecary on them because that combo was [censored].

I can't even begin to list my pile by individual units/models, it would be too much. However, my plan is to cut off the purchases this year unless GW does a big new Eldar release. Maybe I'll keep track of the actual models that I get painted, which currently sits at a single sister of battle flamer (testing colour scheme).

2020 was the best year to date for clearing the backlog. 115 done. 2 purchased. I still have years of projects left so just going to keep chipping away.

Continuing Old World Warriors of Chaos first. Then I think I'll work on 40k Chaos with some detours for terrain and the odd Cities or Gloomspite project.

Nothing new unless something blows me away and only if I sell a large amount to justify it.

2020 didn't pan out quite how I thought; I didn't manage to finish the 28mm ImagiNation line infantry in time for New Year's. As I only have a couple hours a week I can paint, and I'm generally quite slow, it's been a right drag. But, I'm on the home stretch with them now, and the new UK lockdown hopefully means I'll have them finished (if not based) by the end of January. But, in the 3 months that I actually knuckled down and painted, I got a unit of skeletons done and got the ImagiNations infantry (20 of them) built, primed and basecoated, so I'm still quite proud of my progress. It's more than I've done in the last 5 years combined!

I have 4 spare ImagiNation infantry that I want to paint up as Jaegers, and then I'll build and paint a couple more as cannon crew. After that, it'll be painting 10mm sci fi (about 100 tiny minis) while assembling a horde of 28mm orcs for Kings Of War, Oathmark and other, smaller size games.

I did quite well in 2020, if I include the 6 feet of GW trenches and bunkers I’m finishing (technically they were started in 2020) I’ll hit 100 completions for the year.

Will aim for the same this year, mix of vehicles and infantry (more vehicles would be good). Won’t come close to finishing the pile, but it will make a dent!

Last year wasn't one of my better years as COVID played havoc on my personal life (like everyone else, I assume), so I managed a total of 45 minis in 2020 and ended up buying way more than I could get painted.

Going into 2021, I have in my pile of shame:

Space Marines:
3x Bladeguard Vets
3x Outriders
3x Eradicators
1x Bladeguard Ancient
1x Chaplain
1x Gravis Cap
Indomitus Lieutenant
Lieutenant Amulius
2x Dark Imperium Lts
1x Ancient
19x Intercessors
11x Hellblasters
6x Inceptors
1x Repulsor

Eldar:
4x War Walkers
1x Wraithknight
9x Jetbikes (old style)
1x Crimson Hunter

1x Avatar
4x Farseers
3x Warlocks
4x metal Wraithguard
5x Wraithguard
4x Fire Dragons
7x Warp Spiders

Exodites (separate because of conversions)
1x Farseer
5x Dire Avengers
10x Storm Guardians
5x Shining Spears

Bought a load of Tyranids so now I have:
1x Hive Tyrant
2x Carnifexes
10x Gargoyles
1x Lictor
30+ Termagants
30+ Hormagaunts
10x Genestealers
5x Tyrant Guard
2x Zoanthropes
6x Spore Mines
1x Biovore

Nighthaunt
82x Chainrasps 15 complete
14x Banshees 4 complete
1x Tomb Banshee
4x Grimghast reapers
2x Spirit Torment 1 WIP
2x Chainghasts
1x Horse Lord guy
1x nightmare lantern guy

Underworlds:
Myari's Purifiers
The Dread Pageant

Scale
1/72 MiG-15
1/72 Hellcat
1/72 Bf109 e-3
1/72 FW 190 A-8
1/72 Hawker Hurricane MkI
1/72 F4-N Phantom II

Unfortunately this is only scratching the surface of what I have to do, I have a bunch of BSF minis and scale models to finish as well.

I've started well this year though, no minis bought in the first 11 days of the year!

Going into the year I have the following unfinished models to get through:

Blood Angels:
Primaris Captain (Indomitus)
Primaris Captain (Know No Fear)
Terminator Captain
Primaris Lieutenant
Lemartes
Primaris Chaplain
Judiciar (finished in January)
Sanguinary Priest (finished in March)
Bladeguard Ancient
3 x Bladeguard Veterans
3 x Eradicators
10 x Assault Intercessors
8 x Intercessors
10 x Tactical Marines
15 x Death Company Marines
3 x Inceptors
5 x Hellblasters
3 x Reivers (I think I will only really paint these as I like the models)
3 x Primaris Outriders
Repulsor
Baal Predator
Drop Pod

Death Guard:
8 x Plague Marines
16 x Poxwalkers (finished in April 2021)
Myphitic Blight Hauler (finished in February)
Rhino (finished in April 2021)

Necrons:
Overlord
Royal Warden
Plasmancer
2 x Cryptothralls
Skorpekh Lord
3 x Skorpekh Destroyers
Plasmacyte
20 x Necron Warriors
6 x Canoptek Scarab Swarms
Canoptek Reanimator

Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps:
5 x Marines
Ripley
Newt
16 x Xenomorphs (finished in April)

Aliens: Ultimate Badasses:
5 x Marines
Burke

I'm going to focus on finishing my Death Guard and I estimate that with the models I've painted already and the addition of a Plague Surgeon, I'll have a 1000 point army finished for whenever games start again. Then I'll switch between Blood Angels and Necrons after 500 points or so at a time, just to break things up (though I think the Indomitus box is only around 800 points?). If I can get a 1500 point BA army together I'll be delighted with myself.

2020 was relatively successful for me – started with just over 120 models unbuilt/unpainted, purchased 5-6, sold about 20, painted a bunch...

Now I'm down to 39. I realized that, in trying to get the backlog down as efficiently as possible, I mostly painted troops – so now I basically have a ton of characters and skirmish minis left to paint, all of which are quite time-consuming. I also got 5 converted AOS chaos knights, 3 Varanguard and a Chaos Warshrine (which I'm going to convert atop a giant crab from Mierce Minatures). And I'm planning to get the Slaves to Darkness warband for Underworlds. So very aware I'm already digging a hole for myself – no more purchases for a few of months!

So far this year I've painted Jain Zar and got started on the 2 Su Jian. I realized that one of the reasons I wasn't painting characters was that I was kind of intimidated by them, feeling like I couldn't do a good enough job. But painting the Jain Zar, I just kind of slapped paint on her, and she looks okay I think so that's been quite reassuring. So now I'm looking forward to having a few months of painting fun one-offs.

Eldar
Artel Seeress
Artel Ilic
Wraithseer
Death Jester
2 Skyweavers


Chaos
Converted Chaos Lord
Gaunt Summoner


Guild Ball
5 Guild Ball Morticians
5 Guild Ball Brewers

Infinity Yu Jing
1 Hsien Warrior
2 Su Jian
1 Dragon Lady
1 Sun Tze


Willy Miniatures Blood Bowl Chaos Kickstarter

1 Minotaur
8 Beastmen
4 Chaos Warriors
1 toad
1 female beastman
1 thrower

AOS Slaves to Darkness
3 Varanguard
1 War Shrine
5 Knights

I have a pretty small list.....

1. Early Republic Roman Army- 50-100 models
2. Viking Warband- 60 Models
3. Handful of Aeronef (Surplus to need)- 10-12?
4. Handful of surplus to need 6mm cavalry- 2 Bases
5. Surplus to need Greek Hoplites- 20 Models?
6. Fantasy 28mm Surplus to Need minis- 2

I have very little need to paint the surplus to need models, but I CAN if I want to.

My focus will be on the initial 50 Early Republican Romans that I need to have finished by November when osprey releases Wars of the Republic.

To that end, I finished the initial 10 Skirmishers this weekend. Prior to that, I also finished 2 Aeronef ships. Therefore, I have all ready painted a dozen models in 2021!

Starting off the year focusing on Warmachine with the Riot Quest updates.

Crucible Guard - Rocketmen
Khador - Some solos, a couple jacks
Mercs - Some dwarf stuff mostly.
Trolls - Some storm of the north stuff.

After that, there's a few big pile o'shame projects I need to clear:

Malifaux Outcasts - Bandits, Obliteration, Plague
Malifaux Arcanists - Performers, Wildfire
Malifaux Ten Thunders - Last Blossom

Guild Ball - Brewers

Relic Knights - Star Nebula Corsairs

I have plenty of other stuff in the pile sadly, but these are the priority projects that could be truly finished as opposed to evergreen projects like MCP.

I'm not even going to try to catalogue what's in The Pile, especially since much of it is in storage. However I do know that I want it to get smaller, so for this year my goals will be:
  • (1) Paint at least twelve models in 2021 (equivalent to one model per month).
  • (2) By the end of the year, (Models Painted + Models Sold) < Models Bought.

    2020 mixed bag. Otoh painted like crazy(5 armies 2k-4k, 2-3k for another old army, started 6th army and lotsa lotr models) bought also ton preparing for brexit making hobby pricier which it did. Now quite a few of bought(the 5 armies for one...) were painted but particularly 2nd hand deal on 5k stormcasts put me on backburner.

    Not sure what was end result so this year will make list of bought and completed models. For both will count ordered/started but arrived/completed as this year model.

    To motivate further no buying models unless i complete same number previous month! Tricky start. Received order i had made december...so atm i'm 38 models bought, 0 painted. Good news is over 100 models in various stages to completion...

    edit: And stuff that is in waiting:

    FEC: Assorted ghouls, unmounted terrorgheist waiting completion, 1 endless spell
    Ogres: 12 gluttons, 2 ironblaster, 20 gnoblar
    Lumineth: calthallar, 5 dawnriders
    Stormcast: Oh about 5k worth of stuff
    Slaves to darkness: About 3.5k worth of stuff(lots are just waiting bases)
    Gloomspite: about 2.4k? plus this will be getting reinforcements

    40k side miscelangelous necrons and SOB waiting to be done but overall fairly good situation there.

    Last year I managed to paint forty-two models, which is a lot for someone like me, but nowhere near enough to make a dent in the massive reserves of unpainted stuff I have lying about.

    Unlike last year I will not be setting hard goals for myself or try to push to have certain projects done, as that led to nothing but misery and a hobby burnout last year. I'll be glad if I can get forty-three models done for 2021.

    That said, I do want to try and master, or at the very least get a little bit better at painting both yellow and white things, two of those dreaded colours I have been avoiding a lot over the years.

    And I will be trying to stick to the 2020 hobby resolution list again, hopefully crossing off more than last year, and serving as a starting point for larger projects.

    Im meant to be priming all my Nighthaunt this summer but everywhere Ive looked has been out of spray primers for plastics for like 6 months now. Its doing my head in.

    Ive only got 1 can of flat grey primer at the moment and I found that in early winter last year.

    Since the end of october in 2019 I've been keeping track of purchases and painted minis, and up until a big Kickstarter (Deserts of the Dead, amazing minis) arrived, I could honestly say that I was ahead. Now however...

    So, my goal is to be in the positive again. I have made my cutoff point 31-10 for the painting year, so I can more easily count what I paint. But one day I will get through all of it. One day...

    I was not thinking about paint shortages when I gave Rustoleum primer a try all those years ago, but today I'm glad I did. Basing a Tyranid scheme on Alazarin Crimson and Black Plum, not so much.

    Dare I even try to plot out my backlog?

    Alright, here we go.

    On the paint bench:
    Tau Tidewall Network (In progress)
    Promethium Forge MDF terrain (basically just needs a brown wash and my to become brave enough to paint graffiti on it. Otherwise done)

    Ready to Paint:
    3x Tau Pathfinders
    4x Tau Drones
    A whole bunch of magnetized Tau Battlesuit Weapons
    2 DnD Minis

    The building bench
    Some 3D Printed Goliaths
    Titanforge Dragon Empire 1+2
    Titanforge villager cult models
    3D Printed Necromunda Water Guild
    Tau Commander
    30-something Kroot Models
    2 Krootox
    9x Crisis Suit models converted from Gundam Converge models
    Skies of Sordane Kickstarter Minis. (Hopefully airships next year or the year after when I have some funds to get them printed on someone's PLA printer)

    In the Closet
    The Red Gobbo (gonna convert him as an AOS Gloomspite Git)
    The 2019 Gloomspite Battleforce
    Box of Gloomspite Grots
    Sisters of Battle 8th ed Army Box
    Ghostkeel
    Tau Commander
    Tau Apocalypse Vanguard box
    Tau Start Collecting box

    Battletech Clan Invasion Box
    33x additional Battletech models from the Kickstarter
    +whatever comes in the second wave of the Kickstarter
    5x dnd minis

    On the plus side. I did get an airbrush for Christmas so hopefully, in a few months, I can just knock out all the Battletech minis in like a single weekend using the airbrush to make some simple paint schemes on them.

    Have you tried undercoating by brush or using an airbrush to prime? Both work just fine.

    You are not the only person I have seen with this "spray primer" problem. I am glad I never got into the habit of spray priming due to the cold climate I live in. I would only have a very short window to get anything done!

    Granted, undercoating by brush sucks, but at least you can still get it done.

    Wow! That is a pretty good list.

    I actually took my Robotech Tactics off my list as I NEVER intend on building or painting them. They are sitting far, far, away in storage. Perhaps never to be seen again?

    On the painting front, I have been plugging away on my Roman army. I finished a unit of 10 Skirmishers, and done the model painting on 8 guys, with the rest having skin, sandals, and tunics done. These guys will take longer to finish as they all have shields too, while the skirmishers didn't.

    Only project I wanted to make sure I got done was finishing my unit of Orcs. In that regard I got them painted and done! In total 115 models painted last years which is 10 more then what I painted in 2019.

    This year I might finally sit down and finish painting some of the board games I bought but haven't gotten around to painting. My Conan box has 105 models in it, of which I have painted 35. So I'm 1/3 of the way through it so I might just buckle down and finish that one first.

    Trolls - Some storm of the north stuff.

    After that, there's a few big pile o'shame projects I need to clear:

    Malifaux Outcasts - Bandits, Obliteration, Plague
    Malifaux Arcanists - Performers, Wildfire
    Malifaux Ten Thunders - Last Blossom

    Guild Ball - Brewers

    Relic Knights - Star Nebula Corsairs

    I have plenty of other stuff in the pile sadly, but these are the priority projects that could be truly finished as opposed to evergreen projects like MCP.


    Got the Rocketmen done! Next up I'm catching up on Marvel before diving back into Warmachine for a bit.

    Let's talk pile of shame! In 2020, I manged to make a ton of progress on space marines, but also started Tau, and even though I got most of the Tau painted, 2020 was at best a mild net gain on my pile. I did make a lot of progress on stuff like terrain, and I also sold a lot of stuff, but a lot of what I sold was bought in 2020... so...

    Anyway, for 2021, I really want to focus on my current projects. Of course, Literally on the second day of 2021 I went to a swap meet, and bought a huge pile of WFB high elves. I was able to sell enough to make my money back plus a little, but kept enough to build a nice little force. I still have some primaris marines, including the stuff I bought for indomitus, and some older projects. the list below isn't comprehensive, but is probably a decent inventory of everything I will work on this year:

    Tau (Primed)
    Stormsurge
    Etheral
    Bomber

    Space Marines:
    35 Dark Imperium Intercessors (currently ready to prime)
    Indomitus characters (on the workbench)
    6 ETB Reivers (reday to prim)
    6 Plasma Inceptors (on sprue)

    IG:
    OOP Hellhound

    High Elves (need stripped, cleaned, rebuilt)
    20 Spearmen
    15 Silver Helms
    20 Sea guard
    20 Swordmasters
    20 White Lions
    10 Ellyrian Reavers
    5 Dragon Princes
    4 bolt throwers
    Dragon
    2 Chariots
    ~10 characters

    Grey Knights (mostly build/primed)
    ~30 Terminators
    ~50 PAGT
    2x Dreadnought
    Stormraven
    Dreadknight

    Well this is my "pile of shame" -

    4 character models to finish for Warhammer Quest 1995, 1 to buy admittedly - I want the OG Wardancer model!

    12 Warhammer Quest 1995 Skaven
    5 Warhammer Quest 1995 Orc Archers
    12ish Warhammer Quest 1995 Spiders
    12ish Warhammer Quest 1995 Bats
    12 Warhammer Quest 1995 Rats (Reaper Miniatures proxies)
    12 Warhammer Quest 1995 Snotlings

    5 metal Chaos Terminators.
    Couple of metal Bloodletters.

    11 Deathwing Terminators - currently undercoated in Ushabti Bone (I think, might be a Vallejo bone sort of colour - I started them 3+ years ago!)
    1 Deathwing Librarian Terminator conversion to finish - mostly painted
    24 Space Hulk Genestealers

    1 Deathwing Master in Terminator armour - magnetised with all current weapon options. Although I need to rebuild him (which means buying new parts) as I badly undercoated him, gummed up some of the details, and he won't strip properly...


    1 Warhammer Fantasy Inn to finish

    1 Land Raider Mk1 conversion/refurb to finish

    So close to finishing both of those...


    A Cawdor gang box set to finish.
    1 Van Saar Heavy and 1 Female ganger to finish.

    1 Necron Command/Annihilation Barge to light up with LEDs, assemble and paint. Just need to get my head around the wiring, been putting that off a couple of years now...

    I may also have the Necron half of the Command starter set for 9th if we ever get around to being able to meet up again safely here in the UK as I agreed with my gaming buddy that I'd give him some money for them...


    And...

    4 Imperial Navy cruisers
    4 Chaos cruisers
    4 Sword Frigates

    ...for Battlefleet Gothic.


    Probably a few more that I haven't counted, and I have a few scale model kits WIP also...


    A lot of that has been hanging around for a number of years now, because I have health issues that have been limiting my "hobby time" and I generally don't get much encouragement from anyone to push on with stuff. But I hope to finish some of it this year, I certainly won't be buying any scale model kits, and probably won't be buying any GW stuff (new or old) this first half of the year.

    My biggest piles of shame are as follows:

    Ogors: 1 FLoSH, 6 Bulls, then painting some tats on 24 Bulls, and a Slaughter Master.

    Legion of Nagash: 1 VLoZD When the new Vampires come out I'm in SOOO much trouble. All 4 of them look absolutely amazing.

    Slaves to Darkness/Chaos: 10 Chosen, 10 Warriors with Shields, 5 knights, a lord on Karkadrak. Finish the Endless Spells. When the new Hedonites come out, I'm in trouble.

    Finish Basing the Endless Spells from Malign Portents. Everything is painted, just not based.

    For 40K, its:
    Death Guard: 14 Plague Marines and a Plague Burst Crawler. Oh and a base for a Drone.

    Dark Angels: An Indomitus Box...

    Custodes: 6 Jet Bikes and Trajann

    Eldar: 2 War Walkers, a Dreadnought, and their version of a Knight

    Space Wolves: 2 Rhinos need a pin wash and some free hand, a Razorback needs some freehand, and their flyer.

    I'm working through the Death Guard now as 7 of the Plague Marines were purchased today. Next up is the Ogors as they have been base coated and washed but I need to start building up the highlights on the SH. I've pinned the VLoZD up as its the old Zacharius model from back in the day but I have that as my back burner model.

    Progress is being made - I've been sick and through surgery lately. Haven't had the energy or motivation since Christmas. With Crohn's and a recent ileostomy, I've felt more depressed about life since the week before Christmas but I got cleared for driving yesterday and went to the local hobby shop for a bit and I feel like I'm getting back to the old me.

    Most of my pile of shame was obtained when I came back into the hobby by buying second hand job lots. Most of it cost very little. Much of it little more the selvage and saved from being thrown away. There is always that thought that it may be useful somehow, but never seems to get used.

    I have little or no attachment to most of it and even less in modern GW pieces release over the last 20 years. Basically all AOS and 40K will be sold or exchanged as I found very little interest in it along with many odds and bods. There are a few miniatures I like the look of from the AOS range but not many. The cash gained will fund other miniatures I do want to get into the collection.

    This should clear about 90% of what I have.

    Some items I will be keeping like vintage Citadel dragons from the 80's,Lord of the rings miniatures which are extremely good looking sculpts, and Malifaux. I may add to these later when I can get what I have painted or get them into some sort of game play. Burrows and Badgers is my first love and I will be only buying into this game as new pieces for this year.

    I also have a paint pile of shame. Some I purchased to try out and did not think much of, and others came with bulk lots. These I will use to make terrain pieces for gaming. Will save my better paint for more important jobs.

    I also have a "Paint Pile of Shame"

    I use Wal-mart bargain box acrylics on a lot of models and terrain. However, I use my Vallejo and Army Painters only on things that I want to look better than what the Acrylics can do.

    What a good thread. I decided I have too much in my pile of shame and even more in my partially completed pile of hope, to list them here.

    I have been very impressed by all the people who know exactly how much they have done or completed in year. I have no idea what I have done. I have done A LOT, from assembly, though priming, full base coats, washes and base costs, sometimes even all on the same model.

    Unfortunately I also started a brand new army..WH40k IG and got Indomitus, the Ghaz set and part of an AOBR set I found on Ebay. All in all, I am probably ahead but no idea by how much. It has been satisfying assembling and basic painting models I have had for five or more years.

    (Un)fortunately a new games shop has opened about a mile away and I will feel obliged to support them.

    So this year I thought I would start a spreadsheet to record
    1. How much I spend
    2. What I buy
    3. What I assemble, prime, base coat, wash etc

    I can use this to try and track the total work against my purchases. I am already a Cadian Heavy Weapon Squad, 8 Ebay Cadians and an Enginseer down!

    I am normally not much of a finisher but have about 50 projects all in progress ( and all packed away, ready to be resumed) so even if I don't finish a single one but take a step or two forward on each one, at least I will have a record of what I have done.

    If people are real masochists for this sort of thing there is an old thread somewhere called "Get it all painted..." before buying any models. Its is page after page of massive lists
    I hope the people on that thread are ok!

    I feel like I made decent progress in 2020, but also bought quite a bit so it was probably a wash overall, or even expanded the pile of shame a bit. But I'm off to a good start for 2021 - I haven't bought a single model yet, and we're already 1 month down! That will probably change when the Warmaster titan comes out though.

    My pile of shame is pretty bad. I've come close to posting the full list before but for whatever reason always ended up pulling out and deleting it. It's daunting, but I'm going to see if I can bring it down at least somewhat this year...

It'll also be good to get the wraithknight done - I built and posed all three of them at the same time so it'll be nice to see them all finished.

    Putting things up by game I feel is easiest for me, so that's what I'll do

    Legion- main game at the moment, I'm almost fully painted (just a handful of terrain pieces to do). Few things on the way but they're low model count boxes I can paint in a night or 2 with enough effort put in
    Malifaux- I have a couple of crews in some stage of completion, but its all easily achievable over the next couple months and the painted:unpainted ratio is still well in the clear
    AoS/Warcry- Warcry starter set terrain and wild beasts are all unpainted but assembled, and I have a few bits and pieces for my Skaven army to paint but the bulk of the work is done
    Infinity- I'm in the process of buying a new army, but I just finished fully painting my old one and the new one is only 15 models so I can get through it quickly enough
    Blood Bowl- 1 painted team, 1 unpainted. The unpainted one is on my desk now being painted, so give it a week or so and it'll all be done
    LotR- I have 3 painted armies that can all be run separately, but my big Easterling/Mordor alliance is still all but abandoned for now. Once I get through a few of the smaller projects I plan on knocking them out as quickly as I can but that's not any time soon

    Got a fair bit of stuff painted since the new year – but bought some stuff too as I gear up to do a Vampire Counts/Soulblight Gravelords army.

    Fully Painted:
    1 Harlequins Death Jester

    5 Guild Ball Brewers - really happy with how these came out.

    2 Su Jian for Infinity
    1 Sun Tze for Infinity - I can now basically field a full Infinity force, and only have a couple more models in blister packs I can add in when I feel like it.


    Bought and Fully Painted:
    Converted Cursed King Terrain Model
    AOS Necromancer
    AOS Skeleton Warrior
    Slambo and the Sorcerer from the Khagra's Ravagers set


    That's 14 models by my count since the start of the year. I bought 10 skeleton warriors from Mierce miniatures, and the Sepulchral Guard (7 minis) from GW. So I guess I'm keeping the pile of shame under control, but not totally eliminating it. And now Warhammer Quest and the Vampire warband are coming... Better get to it.

Basically I decided another 80 Chainrasps from Mortal Realms was sensible and acquired a bunch of Rune Wars at £2.99 a box including 10 Carrion Lancers.....

    I was doing good too. I'm averaging about 10 to 15 models a week at minimum, but since we had some 3 day weekends I went wild printing piles and piles of new stuff to mess around with which bolstered the grey horde.

    I somewhat balanced things out by selling some big boxes full of unbuilt models I just haven't gotten around to in years and had lost interest in.

    Then I ended up buying a fairly significantly sized Carthaginian army with plenty of mercenaries to round things out, all unbuilt, but at an incredible price so I couldn't really resist.

    Multiple Victrix sets really aren't helping either, when each includes 50 or 60 figures...

    Ticked the Dread Pageant off my list at the weekend, reducing my pile of shame a little bit. I've painted 15 minis this year which is good going for me considering the 45 I managed last year.

    Knocked out another five Assault Intercessors this morning.

    I also got two walls painted, a custom coat rack built and installed, and seven electrical outlets/switches swapped for new ones that match the wall color. That living room has been waiting for me to get around to painting it for seven years, it's not miniature work but by golly I'm counting it anyway.

    Next couple of things on the desk are commission work, so I won't make progress on my plie of shame for a few weeks.

    Going through the boxes (and boxes) of shame and dug up these guys who've I've had for "only" 3 or 4 years.



    Mark Copplestone security guys from the old Future War line. 30 year old sculpts and just fantastic. Posts that make sense, gear and uniforms that look great, clean castings.

    Now I want more

    My pile is based on the new Necrons. I couldn't manage to fully paint them.
    The list is rather long: 60 Warriors, Silent King, 6 Skorpekhs, Skorpekh Lord, 6 LHD, and whatnot.

    @Kid_Kyoto: Copplestone minis are great, they are also very quick to paint, with good definition in the cast, and not totally cluttered with details. Reminds me that I have a squad of their sci-fi troopers in my backlog.

    I´m working on armored support for my PDF and renegades, 4 scout sentinels are almost finished with all options magnetized. For once, I am painting all options right away, as I realized I never go back to finish up other options if I just pick one.

    Airbrushed, ready for detailing:
    2 AT83 Brigand tanks with options for standing in as Leman Russ, hellhound or chimera.
    2 Manticore
    1 Basilisk
    1 hellhound
    1 mothballed tank converted from a M48

    Magnetizing imperial / heretic insignia, so they can switch sides like the northern alliance clans in Afghanistan

    Post by: Ian Sturrock


    I'm not going to try to catalogue how many models exist in the Shed of Shame. But I will talk about what I've done so far this year and what remains to be done that's important to me. Done this year (Edits on 4th May...) --

    Tide of Traitors. For my Chaos forces in F28: War Always Changes, I want up to four or five 10-man cultist squads. I have a mix of suborned Imperial Guard minis (classic Red Corsairs style approach of X-ing out the aquilas), some official GW Chaos Cultists, some Blackstone Fortress minis, some Tox Troopers from Miniatures of the North, and some Puppetswar future soldiers with Tormenters heads. I'm just about there with painting all bar the Puppetswar ones. (Edit: aaaagh these do take time! But they're all just about complete bar the basing, now.)

    Deathguard: Also for F28 gaming, I've been painting up two Plagueburst Crawlers and three Blight-Haulers which are almost done. (Edit: no more progress)

    And, here's what's still to do:

    * Blightbringer. After a bit of experimenting I think he's my preferred Command choice for the chaos marines in F28. Got him assembled and have made a start on the painting but no more than that. (Edit... another few layers...)

    * Ten converted Warp Talons. These make for a great bully unit especially with a Nurgle mark. They're primed and assembled but that's about it so far. (Edit: Nothing)

    * Two Chaos Rhinos. Again primed and assembled. (Edit: Nothing)

    * Two CSM squads. Primed and assembled, tiny bit of paint on each. (Edit: Nothing)


    Of course I am also working on a KoW Northern Alliance army. This year I hope to get a 1500 pt army painted, including...

    * Assorted 1980s Dwarf minis, mostly with 1980s era paint jobs so at least needing a wash or two...

    * Blood Rage minis to be my main human forces. Mostly primed, some painting done.

    * Three Shieldwolf Amazon riding bears. These ended up as freebies because Shieldwolf couldn't manage to send me ones that weren't miscast, so there is a fair bit of work to get rid of uneven molding, which makes them the ideal candidates for adding permanently to a multibase. No work done on these so far other than cutting off the most egregious lumps. (Edit: glued them to scenic oval ruined runestone bases, ready to be turned into a multibase but removable)

    * Three Mierce Walrus Dudes. Unassembled. These will be Snow Trolls. (Edit: assembled)

    * One Atlantis Miniatures Mountain Troll to be my Cavern Dweller. Unassembled. (Edit -- finished apart from a few details of basing)

    Picked up a Blood Angels combat box and just finished painting it this weekend, along with my long-overdue Vindicare assassin.

    For me, the really good news is that I was able to rid myself of a large collection of unpainted metal D&D minis I’d been holding onto since at least the 90’s (Ral Partha) and some from the 00’s (mainly from the failed Chailmail lineup). Also got through about 10 recent plastic minis I’d bought. I’ve since sworn not buying anymore unpainted D&D minis and stick to the prepainted plastics so they don’t further compile into my pile ‘o shame.

    Whats more important?
    Moving models from...

    (1) sprue to made
    (2) made to undercoated
    (3) undercoated to 3 or 4 base colours
    (4) a few base colours to all but done
    (5) almost done to calling it done

    At what point do you consider it out of your pile of shame?

    For me, it's getting it to 3...but that still leaves a lot to do.

    Still chipping away at the pile. Pledging 30 Swordmasters for March was probably a bit much but will have them presentable by the end of the month.

    Still only purchased two heroes since the beginning of 2020. Have painted 126 during that time (156 once these elves are done)

    I call it done when I am not going to go back and work on it anymore.

    Typically, all colors on, drybrushed, and washed. This may or may not include basing.

    I am not a big fan of "basing" things.

    It´s not shameless until step 5, including basing.

    However, getting through step 2 will help a lot in culling the pile, as you are then always ready to just break out some paints and finish a project that strikes your fancy at a particular time.

    Step one.

    As soon as a model is placed on the table its providing value. For example, I've not painted any Blackstone Fortress models save for the Ambull and that is the way they will stay...well, maybe the eldar ranger, as she is quite a nice model.

    I actually have to re-organize my pile. I actually did a good job cleaning out a pile of "based but not painted" models last year. I still have a a small pile of those left but another full "prep" pile I want to get based as well.

    So far this year I've painted a solid 50 models so I'm making good progress....Cursed City will probably bust a hole in that but we'll see.

    Well through selling plenty and painting a few in 2019 and 2020, I’ve lowered my numbers plenty.
    This year I aim to do the same, more so on the painting side as all the selling done in 2019 got rid of most of the stuff I needed to move on.

    So far I’ve gotten through maybe 10 models to a basic colours, with washes and highlights done.
    A level I’m happy with to call them done.
    Though most could a,ways be gone back to..

    OKay, let's check in how we're doing:

    Tau (Primed)
    Stormsurge - Painted
    Etheral - Painted
    Bomber - Painted

    Space Marines:
    35 Dark Imperium Intercessors (currently ready to prime) - Painted
    Indomitus characters (on the workbench) - Painted
    6 ETB Reivers (reday to prim) - Painted
    6 Plasma Inceptors (on sprue) - Assembled

    IG:
    OOP Hellhound

    High Elves (need stripped, cleaned, rebuilt)
    20 Spearmen - Primed
    15 Silver Helms - 10 Primed
    20 Sea guard
    20 Swordmasters
    20 White Lions
    10 Ellyrian Reavers 5 Patinted, 5 Primed
    5 Dragon Princes
    4 bolt throwers
    Dragon
    2 Chariots
    ~10 characters

    Grey Knights (mostly build/primed)
    ~30 Terminators
    ~50 PAGT
    2x Dreadnought
    Stormraven
    Dreadknight

    To that, so far I've added an Imperial Assault Core box (currently about 40% painted), and about 60 more Praetorian infantry, which are fairly rare and something I buy when available.

    I've also dipped into Rangers of Shadowdeep, which while it resulted in my buying (and painting) some new figures, I also dug deeeep into the pile of shame to paint some minis from the very first Reaper Bones kickstarter.

    Newt
    16 x Xenomorphs (finished in April)

    Aliens: Ultimate Badasses:
    5 x Marines
    Burke

    I'm going to focus on finishing my Death Guard and I estimate that with the models I've painted already and the addition of a Plague Surgeon, I'll have a 1000 point army finished for whenever games start again. Then I'll switch between Blood Angels and Necrons after 500 points or so at a time, just to break things up (though I think the Indomitus box is only around 800 points?). If I can get a 1500 point BA army together I'll be delighted with myself.

    I have painted up a bunch of armoured units that can play both as loyalist PDF forces and can swap insignia to play as chaos renegades.
    2x AT83 Brigand tanks
    2x Manticore
    4x Scout sentinel
    1x Basilisk
    1x Mothballed tank
    1x Hellhound

    Even managed to finish up alternative weapon load-outs and optional tank commanders for once, so they are almost fully complete. Just missing some crewmen for the basilisk and some chaos sigils for some of the tanks.

    Three warlocks ticked off the pile of shame yesterday, fun to paint up and refreshing that they're not crammed with detail.

    March I painted 38 and brought 1 the Knight of Shrouds from Mortal Realms putting me at just over a 100 for the year....Unfortunately the pile is still winning.

    Painted 5 chainrasps for that Nighthaunt army lingering in my pile of shame. Pretty speedy job but that means they'll be out of the way quicker!

    Finished my Squigs last night.... so many squigs....

    Anyway, going back to take care of the last of the Relic Knights stuff from my backlog since I don't have anything hugely pressing at the moment. After that I'm hoping to clear out a few Malifaux updates.

    May is going to hit hard. Most of the games I play have some major releases I've been waiting on.

    Relic Knights is done! All of it!

    I've got a bit of MonPoc to paint and a few Malifaux figures to finish. Also finally got a Knight Models order that I need to focus on and a pair of Redemptors I want to add to my Watch.

    The big pain is coming soon though. Dragons are finally coming to ASoIaF, there's some new Warmachine stuff I need to update and I've got friends itching to get me to try out both Warcaster and Twisted. Hoping to finish up a bunch of stuff before the inevitable backslide.

    Good progress Lunar!

    I have been assembling minis like crazy to prepare for painting.

    50 more Romans assembled and 20 Vikings assembled with 30 more in the Queue.

    Completed 17 minis this week, all Nighthaunt so were fast to blast through. Add 10 bladegheist revenants to the list though as I cannot control myself.

    Caught back up with MonPoc and finished my Oblivion crew for Malifaux while also getting a couple Guild new releases finished. Also ordered Twisted which almost offsets those gains but... still positive overall.

    I've got the Knight Models Green and Yellow Lanterns on the table right now, and the Redemptors magnetized and primed. Hoping to get those done before some new Batman/Riddler releases and Twisted arrive. Making new arrivals a priority has really helped keep the backlog from growing. Turns out the stuff on the shame pile was sitting there because I didn't want it QUITE as badly as I thought.

    Finished up another 25 horrors putting painted model total to 237 this month vs 225 bought. So now pile reduced this year by 80 models total.

    Next month try to avoid buying models entirely but also pace of painting reduces. This pace was mind breaking

    237 painted in a month? Lots of epic stuff then?

    No. Aos models. Mind you 65 had main colours mostly done last month. Those were stormcast. Then 40 blood reavers, 18 ogre gluttons, 20 gnoblars, 30 pink horrors, 30 brimstoee horrors, 25 or so blue horrors. Have exalt list as this year i keep exact list of bought and painted models

    That is impressive!

    Lists are a great tool. I´ve started cataloging my own collection including the state of painting / building, both as a tool for working down the pile, and for insurance reasons.

    I can tell you from personal experience you don't want to paint that many in a month I did accomplish it but this month been "paint paint paint paint". Get home, sit to painting table, paint for hours, sleep." Repeat. Day after day after day.

    Drove myself into corner with vowing to paint minimum of same amount I buy each month and then landing on 2 big 2nd hand deal Whoops.

    May I will take it more easy. Read some books maybe(just got half a dozen novels by who is fast becoming one of my favourite japanese authors). Goal is to get the 2k seraphons(that's 9 models) and work on lumineth. Anything beyond that is a plus.

    Not too much of an update, I've got a ton of elves almost done, but I wanted to share some pictures of what I have completed so far this year.

    Tau:
    Spoiler:


    Ultramarines Primaris:
    Spoiler:


    And not technically part of the pile of shame because it was bought this year, an Imperial Assault Core set:
    Spoiler:


    So far in 2020 I've painted 72 backlog Marines, three backlog Tau, a newly bought Imperial assault, and 30 newly bought elf archers. Unfortunately that leaves about 130 elf models (many in progress) that were bought this year, along with ~60 IG praetorians, a venerable dreadnought, and two impulsors, all bought this year.

    So, so far actually in the red for the year

    Still holding strong in the no purchasing commitment. After the 30 Elves adventure I just pledged a Skarsnik model for April ( we have a once per 6 month season small hero exception)

    So running tally since Jan 2020 157 painted, 2 purchased.

    Green and Yellow Lanterns done! Working on the Redemptors now, after that I'll probably work on the Twisted stuff depending on when it arrives. Otherwise I'm likely to try and finish up the last of Guild Ball.

    Knocked out three Bladeguard this morning, but I had to add two Tervigons, a Tyrannofex, and four Ripper Swarms to the pile.

    Managed to paint 21 models this over April. 10 more models in various stages of completion are on my pile at the moment. Hope to get them done so I can focus on picking a project and just working to get it done.

    For the first time since I began my self imposed purchasing freeze I am wavering pretty badly. I really want that new Be'Lakor. His first model was what originally had me start a Chaos army.

    I haven't caved yet (silver lining to GW's production issues?)

    I think I'll set myself a challenge. I can't buy him until the list I want to have him lead is built and painted.
