Get rid of the empty boxes and try to consolidate sprue's where possible. There's been closet picks worse than this, just better organized.

Finished up my Kaeris crew over the weekend and ALMOST got through most of Parker's as well. That'll bring me to just 3 remaining crews for Malifaux.

Heh. "Empty boxes". None of those boxes were empty.

I did spend quite a while consolidating things yesterday. I must've crushed 30+ boxes and put them inside other larger boxes to get rid of.

That's why I said consolidate sprues. Whenever I have more than one box of something one of the first things I do is combine them and get rid of one of the boxes to stop things from piling up.

I continue my reorganisation/consolidation:

I think I found about 8-10 untouched Deathwatch sprues. Full sprues. Maybe 20 Terminators. Two Venerable Dreads. Two Death Company dreads. A Land Raider Crusader... but not the "accidental Land Raider" that I bought years ago. Maybe I built that already and turned it into a Chaos Land Raider? That would make sense.

More Scouts than you can shake a stick at. Holy gak. Another Land Raider (from the Talons of the Emperor box from ages ago), a Rhino, a Razorback, two plastic Contemptors, 60 odd HH Marines, 5 boxes of Genestealer Hybrids (the 5-man sets) plus 4 boxes of Hybrids (the 10-man sets). Two completely unopened Ork Boyz boxes - jackpot! - plus assorted Lootas and Stormboyz. All my Flash Gitz, which is nice.

3 boxes of Centurions. A box of 3 Vindicators. Two attack bikes. I think around 6 or 7 unbuilt Bastions.

I haven't gone through the Tyranids yet, but when I was checking a few boxes I did come across a box with two complete Trygons in there. That was nice.

Still haven't found the Bloodthirster. Did find my Knights. And I'm sure I have an unbuilt Baal Predator somewhere...

Pictures of tubs filled with endless sprues will have to suffice. I'm crushing all the excess boxes. Up to about 40 or so.

Next time my wife complains about how much I spend on toy soldiers I'm going to show her this.

On topic, five more Heavy Intercessors, a Maleceptor, and that last Spore Mine finished today. Made pretty good progress on a Redemptor as well.

Unfortunately I traded for three more Outriders (...technically six more Outriders for twelve total but I could never field that many, the other three are for future conversions) and a Toxicrene, sort of. I scratch built it from the Tervigon birth-sac that was left over from the Tyrannofex, the proper head and tentacle arms leftover from the Malceptor, a bunch of spare Monstrous Scything Talons, and other random bits. My bits box was starting to run out of space and I had to do something.

Looking back at my first post on this thread, still haven't touched most of it.

But I have been doing a lot of painting this year, I swear. Unfortunately, it's mostly been new minis I've been picking up.

For example, last week, I painted a Collossal Green Dragon and a Froghemoth miniature, and just need to base the four raptors I got to go with them - all Wizkids minis.

Right now, sitting on my paint desk is an English Armada for Black Seas - A first rate, four 3rd rates, seven 5th rates, nine Brigs and a squadron of War Galleys. I just finished the first rate (modeling it on HMS Victory) - only to realize I should have painted the panels and yardarms black, not dark brown....

It never ends well

I finished off 19 Ripper Swarm bases this morning. I feel like they should have been a slog, but they're individually too simple for that.

Absolutely.

I don't have that much in backlog in term of building models (at least for models that I plan to use,unfinished project like some Fantasy armies is something else).

From memory:

Tyranids

Tyranids Malanthrope - This one was picked up as an extra while I was ordering, no real plan for him right now as I have one painted already.

Genestealers - Got 2 boxes worth of them I think, as I still use my older ones instead. Will build them with scything talons when I get to it for variety, even maybe the extra armor!

Hormagaunts plastic - They are all built, but I repaired a bunch and modified how they stand on the base so they don't tip as easily, I want to do them all like that eventually.

Hormagaunts metal - I have about a dozen laying around, but I use Hormagaunts never in game so the interest to work on them is low.


Custodes

100% build and painted during the pandemic, yay!


Thousand Sons

Tzaangors - Got the Hexfire squad to build, waiting for the missing pistol sprue to be received (friend bought the box and dealt with the issue), as I want to build them with pistol and chainsword for variety (already have 20 painted which is probably more than enough).

Scarab Occult - Again from Hexfire, haven't got to them yet.

Spawn - One more to build, lacking inspiration for the 7th spawn of the army (gonna have to reach 9 eventually).


Eldar Craftworld

War Walker x2
Wraithseer
Wraith Guards x5 - From a Start Collecting I forgot I bought. That's were one War Walker and the Wraithseer body is from.

Fantasy armies - Retired (Tomb Kings, Vampires, Empire, Chaos Warriors/Daemons, Dark Elves)

Tyranids army - Ever evolving, but about 10k pts
Custodes - 3,500pts (Fully painted yay!)
Thousand Sons - 4,000 pts
Eldar - 3,000pts

All the negative progress; I added two Venerable Dreads, a Wolfen/Ven Dread, a Libby Dread/Ironclad Dread, and put in the orded for a unit of Cataphracii Terminators to arm with Hammers and Shields.

I painted two Contemptors that weren't on my list, but that doesn't count because I just moved them from my Custodes collection into the Marines where I might actually use them.

I painted up a Khorne Demon Prince for my Slaves to Darkness. Essentially he is flesh tones with more red hues in the skin with some faint purples. His tabard is red. My pile of shame is treading a bit.

Soulblight - Radukar (both versions), his body guard, grave digger gorslav, and 2 corpse carts need to be based. Waiting for blood knights to get back in stock.

Death Guard - 7 plague marines

Craft World Eldar - 15 riders on jet bikes, 1 Seer Council, 1 Spirit Seer (finecast), 2 war walkers, 1 wraithlord, 3 Vypers, 6 swooping hawks, 5 warp spiders, 1 fire prism, and an avatar.

I am working on my last stuff in my To Paint pile right now.

2 units of 10 irregular infantry for ancients, and a 10 model nativity scene.

Once those are done, I am out of models!

I'd have to check to be sure, but I think that makes you the first person to defeat The Pile of Shame in 2021. [Applause!]

Finished 10 Assault Intercessors this morning.
