I dont have a pile of shame. What I do have is a hobby with multiple on-going projects within it. I'll work on different projects on different days at varying paces.

Current projects are:
AoS - a small DoK force. Have to build 1 more Bloodwrack shrine & 10 harpies (whatever they call now). Then painting.
AoS - I picked up the new mega gargant kit this evening. Build & paint.
40k - currently building about 1k pts worth of GSC. Painting to follow.
40k - the Primaris half of the Indom box + their Mario kart. Building & painting
●Flames of War - between all the different eras (WWI-WWIII) i have 14 armies. Each has a full+ force finished, but I have a # of extra/alt/auxiliary units for each that need finished beyond just their basic min paint jobs. You know - detailing, washes, weathering, unit markings, etc.
●Flames of War - i have a pair of A10 Warthogs that need building. Then painting.
●Bolt Action - theres about 15 misc Germans that need painted up & added to squads.
●Black Seas - the thread rigging project continues! I'm down to about 12 ships to finish & then ill never touch thread again. Its like building 40k drop pods - except even more tedious..... fortunately not actually required, but the ships look SO much better once its done.
●D&D/RPGs - there's several hundred misc/cool figures to paint up. Generally I paint something from this group if I'm going to be using it for an extended period or for some big set piece encounter. Otherwise it's just as the whim stikes.

It's bad- but less bad after I sold all my 40k stuff a few months ago. Still more than I can realistically handle, but just enough that I can't let any more of it go.

I have a different problem. I have already painted everything I had for Warmachine and WH40K and don't want to buy any more, because I rarely play anyway.

I was hoping to paint Black Rose Wars, but I didn't like the game so I am selling it.

I was also looking for another wargame to enter, but none of my friends were interested in the ones that looked interesting to me. And communities of those niche games are close to non-existant here.

I'd like to paint something again (my pile disappeared during the first few months of lockdown in spring) but I have little motivation to paint things that will find no tabletop use.

Behold - the cupboard of shame!

I currently have a shelving unit of shame (although mostly aircraft plastic kits) with a pile of shame atop the shelves.

Discounting stuff I have currently no intention to play with, it's

Marvel Core box
Full Shepherds along with Butchers teams (with cooks) for Guildball

Not being able to play however is a bit of a motivation killer

I'm kind of in a similar situation but am viewing it as an opportunity to try and get stuff finished off and painted - thinking of (fingers crossed) spring next year as a loose deadline for when things might start to return to some semblance of normality.

I'm in pretty good shape right now. There's 40 skink skirmishers, 50ish Saurus warriors, a handful of Temple Guard, 3 Terradons, 6 Ripperdactyls, 3 Salamander conversions and 4 Razordon conversions waiting... along with six stegadon conversions, one troglodon conversion, and four carnosaur conversions.

There's also a literal handful of one-off minis just for the heck of it, not as part of any armies.

I need to get some Saurus cavalry one of these days, but I might wait a bit longer so I can whittle down the waiting list a bit more.

My job here is done.

Same as some other posters, counting the pile in individual models is just not feasible. I paint 200-ish minis in an average year, but I am also very good at buying

Terrain - just bought about 1000$ of terrain for a 40k city fight board, also got some buildings leftover from my post-apoc terrain

Flames of war - US and german mid/late armies

Team Yankee - Soviet VDV army

Fantasy - Tomb kings chariot army, Tomb kings constructs army, huge skaven skyre army, chaos troll army + various leftovers of Norsca army, Empire panzer engineers army, Empire peoples crusade army, Empire Ostermark army, Kislev army reinforcements, Dogs of war Myrmida company army

40k - Cadian 122nd army, Krieg platoon, Renegade militia army, various imperial support

Various - monsters and heroes for rangers of shadow deep / RPG, various leftover fallout, walking dead

This year I have at least gotten everything organized by project in see-through boxes, so much easier to have control of my projects. I notified my wife that if I should pass suddenly, she has a savings account in my pile of shame.
