Got my admech onager done recently, and to celebrate I bought some admech sulfarhounds - which I've at least primed!

Also, to my own surprise I'd pulled out my Robotech minis and have been assembling and priming them. There's another studio now doing resin minis and I picked up some armored & super valkaries that inspired working on all this.

As an aside, I also managed to paint up some modern soldiers and a bradley I had acquired on the side. Now I just need a game to find use for them in!


I actually thought about pulling out my Robotech minis as well, but then a much delayed set of Romans arrived. Maybe next time?

My happy place.

I've been fighting the pile of shame with my usual plan: the wargamers challenge.

basically, over the last few years I've compiled a list of "points of equivalency" for my miniatures.

Infantry counts as 1 each, large infantry and cav count as 2, etc.

I then write down and list everything I paint as I finish it in my yearly-remade blog.

I play: AOS Death, AOS Cities of Sigmar, 40K imperial soup.

Gratz! Just checked your gallery and I love the Orange and green on your space marines and vehicles. Honestly, think I may steal that colour combo for use on my Drukhari or Tyranids.

Only very recently started fighting my pile of Shame, still no finished models yet, but feels like a solid start.

I haven't updated in a while. I've been productive, but I also backslid. The bad news is that a buddy of mine asked me to paint some of his stuff in exchange for metal sisters... and I couldn't say no. So, that meant I added another 60+ models to my backlog, while painting models that don't help me:









And then, of course, once I started collecting Sisters, I couldn't turn down another 60 plus vehicles at a swap meet for $200. So, that's a nice big addition to the backlog.

I did make some progress on my WFB High Elves, and some Craftworlds:

That is a load of great looking minis Polonius. Love the Biel-Tan

I fell into a metal sisters army myself. 100+ sisters a land raider with Inquisition iconography and an immolator for 200$. Couldn't refuse that deal. Will probably sell about half and just keep a modest ecclesiarchy contingent to roll out beside my IG though.

Those are some lovely elves and space elves, both sporting that classic green.

Cleared some of my own pile of shame and added to it further so not exactly shrinking it but I am painting way more than ever. 7 Warp Spiders finished and a Bladeguard Ancient. Leaves me with 3 minis from Indomitus!

Finished three Outriders yesterday.

Looking over my progress for the year I think I've been painting models faster than I've been adding them, but it's been a near thing. I also think I've got all the Tyranids I need (...ok maybe another Exocrine or Tyrannofex...) so I should do better the second half of the year.

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).


Well, I totally didn't follow my purchase plan at all, adding some new sisters and deathwatch. However, aside from the solo SOB mini mentioned above, I've been able to paint up
2000pts of Tau Farsight Envclaves
2 Ravenwing Typhoons and 2 ATVs, plus the Ancient.
7 T80s, 4 BMP-3s, 2 SA8 Geckos, 3 TOS-1s, 4 BRDM 2s and 3 Storms for my Team Yankee Soviets.


So my new plan at the mid point of the year is to focus on the Sisters while also painting one unit from each army to break up monotony.

I think I have all my Republican Romans done...... for now. That is 160 Romans painted up this year so far. Enough for three or so armies of various periods, or one Hail Ceasar battle. LOL!

Here is the last entry about them until I get some cavalry. I am not 100% convinced by the Victrix cavalry for the Republican Romans, so am open to some suggestions on adding those units. Got some?

Haven't checked in for a while. I broke my no new minis pledge but it was a rare opportunity to get the old FW Dwarf Characters and Collectors Grombrindal carried by Bugman and Gotrek so I couldn't say no.

So since the beginning of 2020 I've painted 170 minis and purchased 6. Acceptable.

Still sticking to the pledge outside of rare exceptions like the above. Still working away at Chaos minis to reward myself with the new Be'Lakor as mentioned earlier.

I haven't painted enough this year to warrant monthly updates, but I thought I'd post a six-month progress report.
Pictured are the thirteeen models which I have painted in 2021, one of which was bought this year. This means that I have met my goal to paint an average of one miniature per month in 2021. Yay!



Not pictured are the fifty-nine(!) other models that I have bought this year. In my defence I have been scouring Ebay to obtain various models from Blackstone Fortress and Kill Team: Rogue Trader, after missing out on them when they were originally available.
I'd better get painting.

Thumbs up for Polonius for dealing with the Guardians are ancient issue by using even more ancient ones, not even with s-catapult upgrades

I finally cracked and decided I’m not buying anything new until I finish my 2 biggest shame armies. Before I was clearing the pile while also adding to it, but now my Easterlings are about a third of the way done and I’m powering through them until they’re finished, next up is Bolt Action (but since I told my gaming group my intention I’ve been given a tank which I guess put some me back a bit)

Deathwing Terminator with Assault Cannon





had a couple of extra days to spare this weekend and shifted gears (not sure what the driving force was), but finished 5 Deathwing terminators, Deathwing Apothecary and Deathwing Venerable dreadnought. It started out as Indomitus painting (since I've had the models almost a year and did finish a DA Lt in Deathwing colours), but then got the desire to knock out more terminators.

With weather in AZ not being conducive to spraying basecoats right now, think I'd better look to see what is already undercoated or started.

Still painting my indominus stuff. A friend wants me to paint up a unit of Primaris Space Wolves and that special Primaris Character the Wolves got. Once that's done I'm planning on getting some terrain done. Before I finish up my 2k all Primaris list. After that? I'm not really sure. I've about 2k or 2500 of Grey Knights in my closet. :S

Successful Trades.

I'm going to be reorganising my gaming room. This will involve taking out everything that isn't built, putting it into a pile, and then working out a way to store it in such a manner that the room becomes useable again. I will of course take photos.

As to how big the pile of shame is, all I can say is this: Y'all mother fethers ain't seen nuthin' yet!

Finally caught up from the deluge of releases from May that put me in the hole and back working on some Malifaux from my backlog. Sadly I think I've probably got another big wave of stuff in the next month or two that are going to set me back again.

Operating by system rather than just amount of minis has done me wonders (even though some have huge backlogs still)

Batman- I'm 100% fully painted, just waiting on a Court of Owls crew to arrive which will set me back again a bit
Bushido- Got 2 minis on the desk now which will be real quick to do, then that's 100% done as well
Blood Bowl- Painting the last 3 models and then all my Goblin team needs basing, after that fully painted
Necromunda- Base gang is done for Delaque, just one web gun and the new releases to do when they arrive
Kill Team- all my marines are bare plastic, and there are quite a few of them
Bolt Action- all grey, with no real sign of painting them on the immediate horizon
Malifaux- Outcasts fully painted, what I own for Bayou 4 models off, Ten Thunders/Resurrectionists I'm waiting on a couple deliveries before I crack into Yan Lo and I have all of Colette's keyword in bare plastic as well. Bit of work, but still manageable over the next little while
The Other Side- Fairly big army, and none of it is painted. Like Bolt Action there aren't any plans to do it, but I know how I'm planning on painting them when I do
Fallout- The bad one because I only just recently bought in, but I bought an amount that I can do over a week's project
Arena Rex- 5 painted, 4 on the way. They shouldn't be too intensive of a project and I really look forward to doing it
LotR- I've just managed to finish all my Easterlings which was the biggest chunk, but I've still got a handful of Fiefdoms and 30 odd orcs that need paint at some stage as well

In general I'm staying well within 1:1 painted:purchased over the last couple months and I've managed to get quite a lot out of the way (Almost half my painted minis from this year are from July, the one positive of a lockdown). Just hoping I can keep to the same rate and make sure things get finished as much as I buy
