The pile of shame has been victorious in 2021.

After a strong 2020- where I had just over 250 models completed (various games/lines), I fell very short in 2021.

Model count is at 93 right now. With the 5 Empire spearmen I have almost halfway done, I will likely crack 100...but not by much.

With the year nearly over, thought I'd put up a little list of all the progress I made over 2021.

Batman- painting things as I pick them up, nothing else to really say
Malifaux- I still have 2.5 crews unpainted, but I also have entire factions finished and I'm just waiting on the finishing pieces for said unpainted crews to get them finished as well.
The Other Side/LotR- both of these were the real shameful parts of the pile of shame because I had entire armies sitting around unpainted, but thanks to a 3 month lockdown they're now all 100% painted and I don't have to touch them again apart from new releases
GW games- Kill Team, Blood Bowl and Necromunda I all had in various stages of not completed this year, and now they're all done. Pretty pleased with myself there
Terrain- Finished almost everything for Batman/Fallout, just one building to do but I also have the original starter set terrain for Warcry that needs paint (although that's really just a weekend's work)
Guild Ball- I picked up 2 full teams this year, and they're now fully painted.
Bushido- painted the ninjas last year, Bakemono this year and I have a few Ito Clan models to paint but I'm staying fairly strong here too I think

As for the bad, my Bolt Action army still isn't even started, plus I've also added to it. One day

DC:90S++G+++MB+IPvsf17#++D++A+++/mWD409R+++T(Ot)DM+

I mainly play skirmish games, but am still fairly active with 40k. I play Warcry, Arena Rex, Middle-Earth, Blood Bowl, Batman, Star Wars Legion and The Other Side as well, but my main game is Malifaux.

Got all of the stuff for a Hamelin/Catelyn Plague crew done for Malifaux. Currently working on Colette and the Performers. After that all I'll have is Misaki and some loose Outcast models that I haven't been able to offload so I'm just going to paint to get off the pile for good.

Since I finished all of my stuff for 2021, I started to gather new stuff for my 2022 efforts.

Some Tumbling Dice aircraft and Dark Age Irish from Wargame Atlantic.

Not to derail thread, but whats the scale on those Irish light infantry? Are they comparable to GW Freeguild/Empire infantry or are they closer to stuff from Perry?

Some people putting out some serious progress in the last little bit here as we close in on the end of the year, still more time to finish strong!

So I've still managed to resist adding to the pile.

We just finished our most recent painting challenge season. Since trying to freeze mini purchases Jan 2020 I've painted 189 figures and purchased 6 (hilariously still unbuilt)

Torn on what to pledge for Dec but happy with the steady forward momentum I've settled into.

Closer to Perry than GW.

I also picked up a late edition, another Nativity scene from Reaper. Hopefully, I can get it painted up in time for Christmas!

Here is the last one I painted:

My shelf of future projects is down to:
1) a tub of misc. minis I've acquired along the way throughout the years.
Mostly stuff from shows/cons where I see something cool & will never remember the company/what they made once home. So I get the mini. These get finished as the whim strikes.

2) the terrain from the KT2.0 box. I've got a helluva lot of terrain already & the shops don't need it. So it'll be there for awhile.

3) the Krieg from the KT box. They'll wait until I either re-visit KT (not my favorite game) or return to fielding Guard.

4) About 1500 pts worth of AoS Bone Reapers all NIB. I picked these up at a considerable discount from a local player this past spring. He built about 500pts worth during our Escalation League & learned that he really didn't like AoS. So he dumped his stuff for a stupid low price. The deal was too good to pass up. At the very least I can definitely trade it off at a profit.

5) The SM 1/2 of the Indom launch box. Plus enough other Primaris stuff to round it out to 2k pts. Really just waiting for the inspiration to strike painting wise.

6) The Silent King.

7) The new Warcry set that just released - this'll probably be the next thing I work on as we do regularly play WC. It's just Christmas time & there's no time to work on it atm.

8) The new Dungeonbowl set. I'll likely work on this alongside the Warcry come Jan+

9) Cursed City.

10) 2k pts worth of the new Dragons/dragon riders for AoS .
This is my next AoS force aimed at summer 2022.

My last 12 Termagaunts got done today.

I suspect I'm going to put my current Pile on hold for a bit in the new year, my LGS is on the edge of a Warmachine resurgence and I sold all that stuff off years ago despite vastly preferring that rule system. The question isn't whether I'll jump into that, it's how hard. I really want to pick Skorne back up but that's a lot of money to spend on a system I've watched dry up three different times. Maybe Farrow, that's a much smaller lift.

Ran out of primer and pivoted to some old Warmachine stuff I hadn't finished. Hoping this week to be done with every Warjack I own. Kind of treading water before a bunch of Chrstmas stuff comes in along with the new Malifaux releases in general.

Me too.

I have finished 6 or 10 models on my second nativity scene. I hope to finish before the end of the year.

In just the last few days I've finished all of the Death Guard from Dark Imperium that had been on my shelf for 4 years, and also 10 Eldar Fire Dragons. Biggest batch of models knocked off the to-do list for a while.

I feel like recently my painting is just about out-pacing my buying, so if I can keep that up I'll be reasonably happy, even if the pile doesn't shrink too much.

Month, bought, painted, difference. So 1175 bought, 960 painted. Sold some unpainted models I bought and painted models by bucketload so model pile overall shrunk though.

Well need to sharpen up. Particularly good deals for tzeentch(which I later had to sell) and buying kruleboy halves from new players and big pile of blood angels for good price caused pile to grow up quite a lot.

Gonna call this mostly a success on the chaos army. Blightbringer is finished but unpictured.

Tide of Traitors. 60 painted cultists in four squads. I have about another 10 painted but probably don't need a 5th squad right now.








Two Plagueburst Crawlers





Ten converted Warp Talons. Finished other than adding translucent insect wings to the 8 minis currently wingless... and doing a new base for the (not pictured) one whose base broke off when I dropped it.







* Two Chaos Rhinos. Only primed and assembled so far.

* Two CSM squads. Primed and assembled, tiny bit of paint on each.

My KoW Northern Alliance army remains shamefully incomplete though!

Successful year on the whole. I got the pile to sub 200 for a bit but picked up English Ivan for Malifaux and ended just north of it. Still, down lower than I've ever been to the point where I feel like if I keep disciplined on it this might be the year I clear the backlog for good and just have new stuff to look forward to.
