YTD I’ve finished 2 terminators, and have 2 marines and a zoat as WIP. I am so far behind.

Did just hit level 10 in Witcher 3 last night, so at least I know what the problem is.

Oh the rippers are there. And many more that are somewhere in a bitz box.

I did get to do a count of all my existing Gaunts.

24 Devilgaunts
24 Spinegaunts
68 regular Termagants (+28 2nd Ed plastic Termagants)
66 Hormagaunts
30 Hormagaunts w/Rending Claws (that was a thing once)

And then the unbuilt ones on top of that. It's actually enough to ensure that I have 3x30 regular Termagants and I can increase the Devil and Spine units to 30 each.

After moving some stuff on eBay, I think it's time to really start an inventory for my Pile of Shame. January was bad time for this, as I was sifting through stuff to keep vs. sell, and the thought of listing everything I had was exhausting. Still, I find the need to track our work compelling, so below is an inventory of things I have at least some chance of getting to in the next few years. I'm also using the simple brightline rule that a model isn't done until it's done, which means decals, dullcote, and flock. So, let's get on with it:

Space Marines:
Repulsor (basic)
Guleman
UM LE Lieutenant
Primaris Libby
Primaris Apothecary
9 Inceptors (full kit)
5 DI Intercessors

15 Metal terminators
15 Metal Scouts
~20 Devestators
~20 metal Veterans and Captains
15 bolter marines
15 bikers
3 Scout Bikes
3x Attack bikes
5x Razorback

Grey Knights (all metal unless specified)
43 Terminators
82 Power Armor
3x Ven Dred (plastic)
Dreadknight (plastic)
Voldus (plastic)
Chaplain Terminator
Librarian

Eldar
~20 metal Harlequins
20 Rangers
15 Dark Reapers
20 Howling Banshees
15 Scorpions
20 Fire Dragons
25 Wraithguard
5 War Walkers
30 Guardians
10 Jetbikes
5 Phoenix Lords
5 psykers

Completed so far 2020 (not included above):
Primaris Half of Shadowspear
10x Reivers
6x Aggressors
24 Scouts

bought so far in 2020 (included above):

I have a plie of Guard models, mostly old metal ones from the 80's that I have been meaning to get to. This is the year!!!
And thank you for an inspiring post. It's lovely to know I'm not the only one.

My progress has been setting it up. I had some warm days and primed something like 70 models and then made some foam trays and boxes to store them. That alone feels nice and for those of you that have had set backs or a lack of time?

Just know I, and very likely others, understand that some days or goals you set, don't work out. ANY progress is good progress. Whether you're organizing the pile, sorting the bits or clipping sprues, to priming or getting a lick of paint on is ALL progress.

Maybe not as much as you may feel you could do, but if it sits there and you feel you'll fail so why bother trying? 100% if you don't try. You may surprise yourself or find you can get the smallest bit done. And if it helps, if you do fail at toy soldiers, at least it wasn't a drastic life changing event right?

Man I've been making progress this week but its been sloooow. So SLOOOOOOW.

Painting 3 Orc Arrer Boyz for a little Warhammer 6th Edition Skirmish. I'm a bit annoyed as I bought them used/pre-primed and I should of stripped them and filed off the mold lines
but noooooo I tried to save time by just working with them as is. Now that I started painting them the mold line are SUPER noticeable.

Guess they will be back rank dudes and I'll properly file off the other 9 I have to paint.

Got my sisters done and found better homes for some stuff that was sitting in a box. Almost back to the levels I was at before GW threw both sisters and gitz at me. I've got some side games to work on right now, but getting to those should get me to a new low on the pile.

On that note, finishing up the Sisters means I can finally play the list I've been wanting to build since the dawn of 8th:

I've been surprised by how much stopping streaming has removed motivation to hobby since July - and work changing where I work three days a week has also robbed me of energy this year.

Still, I've been building terrain bits from my Conquest subscription this week - many barrels and crates from Armoured Container sprues (mean to build the containers themselves today and tomorrow), a pair of Blood Reactors, an Alchomite Stack, 1.5 Galvanic Servohaulers (though I'll finish the second one this morning), and a pair of Plasma Regulators.

Intend to pick up some Leadbelcher spray today so I can start thinking about painting something from that lot...

Man. Red spray paint does not taste good. Oh boy...

Well, it's all in service to the Omnissiah I 'spose.

Did also test out Contrast paints for the first time on some Spinegaunts. I think my colour scehem will work, it just needs some refinement. And a smaller brush.

I am wondering whether Iyanden Yellow over Wraithbone might not be the best way to get the yellow. Instead I might try Cassandora over straight white.

My way to fight the pile is simple: I’m making a “goal”/competitive list for my DoT, HoS, BoK and fun S2D armies. I’m trying to get each of those finished, then either clean stuff out or work on it in smaller, less important chunks after.

-Archaon, Gaunt Summoner, 9 Varanguard, Bloodstoker

-3 Keepers, 15 Hellstriders

-Kairos, LoC, 2 Exalted Flamers, 3 units flamers, 3 units screamers, Gaunt Summoner, 50 mixed horrors

-Skarbrand, 2 Bloodthirsters, 3 Skullcannons, 1 Skullthrone, 30 Bloodreavers.

I’m actually in good shape.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Picked up the Leadbelcher spray (and Nuln Oil Gloss) from GW today.

Have "fully" (by which I mean, apart from the storm bolters) built four of the Armoured Containers, while the other three are currently drying from having the walls & doors assembled - control panels and eagle-head-hooks to be added in the morning.

Finished a Hellblaster squad this morning.

That puts me at 27 models down for the month so far, but I added 10 Daemonnetes, 5 Cataphracii Terminators, and Seeker Chariot, and I have another 10 Daemonettes and 3 Eliminators on order. I have to paint another two models to break even.

I have no plans to buy anything else this year, but GW does have this habit of releasing new models...

Man, I can tell it has been a long time sine I played a GW game from this thread. I read the names and have no idea what the stuff is anymore! I am totally out of touch.

On Topic, I finished the painting on 10 more hoplites for Men of Bronze. This is the last unit I needed in my Corinthian army list. These guys still need basing, but I will batch base about 30 guys all at once when those pesky last Spartans get done.



No new purchases, and abut 40 models completed so far in 2019.

Gone-to-ground in the craters of Coventry

I've finished a box of Sylvaneth Dryads. 16 more tree-types with grass and everything
Also, 7 Necromunda enforcer's for a friend. We've got a game on Saturday, so that got that going.
I've assembled 2 squads of floaty Kharadron troops with magnetised arms. And 1.5 ships for them.

But, I brought a box of Kharadron marines. The pile is slowly going down.

Across the Rubicon

All of February I have devoted, mostly, to working on my Genestealer Cult army.

I still have a Goliath Truck/Rockgrinder and a Tectonic Drill (which I bought more as just a terrain piece) to build. What I have built in that last couple weeks are: The Broodcoven, Jackal Adpetus, 15 Jackals, 2 Ridgerunners, 1 Goliath Truck/Rockgrinder, 16 Acolytes,12 Neophytes and 8 Pure Strain Genestealers.

Spoiler:


The spoiler has my current progress. The primer stuff is from this weekend. I won't finish painting this by the end of the month, but I do hope to have at least have them to my minimum tabletop standard before them. I figure a month is a enough time to some good progress but not so long I get too burned out or bored painting the same color scheme.

Still haven't bought much new stuff, but the latest Conquest delivery came with the Silver Templars paint guide, Lt and 5 Intercessors. Lots of new paint for me, but a few more models to add to the pile of shame. Did get my 2 Ambots converted up to Orks in Mega Armour and started painting them along with a few grots and an Ork from the 2nd Edition starter that have been languishing for some time. Once they're finished it'll even out the numbers vs the new Marines.
