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

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

: Co. B, 37th Praetorian IG: 21,000pts
KOW Ogres: 4500 points
Loyalist Emperor's Children: 2500 points

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.

April was a good month for painting with 42 done however with the Black Knight and Bladegheist Mortal Realms as well as some kits I wanted to get from North Star due to the Nickstarter well....104 in and the Nickstarter didn't arrive until May.....

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

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.

Finished up my Redemptors. Painting Twisted next. Neither has really been on the pile, but getting it done helps me get back to it. Likely to get a bit of Warmachine stuff I'll need to focus on soon though. Not expecting to really work on the backlog much for the next couple of months. Lots of exciting new releases.
