Over the weekend, I finished off about 20 North Korean aircraft of the 1/600 range from Tumbling Dice.

In 2021, I painted about half of my goals that I set out in the Pile of Shame thread, knocking out the rest of the Primaris, the last bits of Tau, about 55 Grey Knights, and then roughly half of the High Elf army I bought less than a week into the year. I also painted some Eldar that had been hanging around for a long time. I then starting trading for metal Sisters, and by the end of the year had bought about 7000 points of sisters, with about 4000 points painted. I then added some 3rd edition Tau and Eldar that my mother literally garbage picked, and another 20 metal GK Strike Marines. So, on the whole, I spent more than I planned, didn't dent my backlog as much as I'd have liked, but did paint about 500 miniatures.

As is now quickly becoming tradition, I went to the January Swap Meet up in Atlanta, and walked out with amazing deals on more IG and a good start to a modern Ork army. YOLO, I guess.

So that makes my Pile of shame as follows:

Bought in 2022:
3 Chimeras
3 LRBT
2x Valkyrie
Baneblade
Sentinel
Hydra

Wartrike
4x New Buggies
Ghaz
3x Mega nobz
20 Grots
3x Squig riders plus Nob
10x Beastsnaggas

Dominion Kruleboys half plus 10 more boys and 3 bolts

Bought in 2021
75 Metal Sisters
6 Immolators
20 PAGKs
3 Razorbacks

3 Predators
3 Dreadnoughts

5 Silver Helms
20 Swordmasters
20 White Lions
5 Ellyrian Reavers
5 Dragon Princes
4 bolt throwers
Dragon
2 Chariots
~10 characters

Long term Pile
Dreadknight
30 GK Terminators
25 PAGK

~40 Eldar Aspects
15 Wraithgurd
6 Warwalkers
Falcon
8 Jetbikes

Obviously this won't all get done this year, as the above doens't include the garbagehammer armies, and a ton of stuff I know I've forgotten. Still, my goal is to finish the Sisters and Grey Knights, then finish the Tau and make a big dent in my eldar. We'll see how it goes!

I'm doing something drastic this year, or at least I'll try.

I'm in the middle of finishing a lizardmen army for Fantasy, after which I will start getting rid of anything that isn't related to it, my other fantasy army or my couple of Blood Bowl teams and Mordheim gangs. This is a large collection stretching back to my childhood that has started to loom over me with all its unfulfilled dreams that I think I would be better off without. It has been taking up serious space both in home and mind.

The little bit scary thing? It's going fast. I started building a new box of saurus warriors this weekend and expected painting them to take a week. Took not even two days, now they're almost done. I'm spending almost every single free moment at the painting table and I think I'll be close to finished with everything in about two weeks if I keep this up.

I want to be done with it. There's something burning within that tells me to just keep working on it but will I be ready for what comes after?

Anyway, here's the list of what still needs doing.

20 Saurus (almost done)
6 Saurus cavalry (almost done)
24 Skinks
6 Skink cold one riders
1 Salamander pack
2 Skink priests
2 Skink chiefs
6 Jungle swarms
6 Chameleon skinks
1 Stegadon which needs some engineer work to magnetize between a normal stegadon and lord Mazdamundi

Now, back to those saurus...

I finished off another dozen Hormagaunts over lunch today, that leaves only the scratch built Toxicrene in the 'nid collection.

I got a little sidetracked painting Lord Carver, Esq., but it doesn't count until I get those last few bandoliers finished.

Edit: and now Lord Carver is done as well.

All my Malifaux stuff is nearly finished. Just some highlights to go.

After that I need to catch up on some new Infinity and Song of Ice and Fire purchases. Then I think I'm going to dive into the deep end and take on some of the Warmachine stuff that's been sitting FAR too long.

Well, done with this. I'm sure it would feel great if I wasn't so sick of it right now. I think I'll put all hobby tools away for a week or two before I do anything else.

I finished my leftovers up to the Asavaran. However new working hours have greatly reduced my painting time, and I've had to put the Oathmark army ahead in the queue. I'm using it as a test army for my newly gained contrast paints. Unfortunately I also decided to buy a bunch of heroes, monsters, and extra infantry to go with it.

Sarmatians and Bactrian Lancers
Macedonian Pikemen
Asavaran Armoured Horse Archers


Oathmark:
6 Mounted Xbow
20 Foot Knights
12 Knights

3 Ogres
20 Xbows
Rest of army

Previous Plan:
Dailami Infantry
More 15mm Ancients

So far this I've painted 48 Infantry, 39 cavalry, and 2 chariots. As well as 32 Infantry started last year but finished this year.
Purchased 48 Infantry, 4 Monsters, 7 Foot characters, 2 Mounted characters.

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

I've really tried to slim down my pile of shame over the last year but still have quite a lot.. although have got off to a good start and finished one already!
- Space Hulk: Finish painting 1st edition set Marines and Genestealers
- Finish painting D&D characters for our D&D group
- Finish painting Fallout Raider gang + some terrain
- Great big pile of Epic for 30k/Great Crusade Project: Orks (finish off a couple of Clans + other stuff) and World Eaters
- Adeptus Titanicus Titans and Gargants for the above.
- Get cracking with Star Wars Legions Droid army (only done 1 unit, want to get a minimum possible force)
- Finish Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps expansion set miniatures
- Paint entire A Song of Ice and Fire Stark & Lannister starter set! (Oh er!)

Writing this I definitely don't need to buy any more

I did splurge a little on the 1/72 kits over Christmas. When they're only around £10 each it's nice to pick up a variety.

That 1/48 TSR will be a great project and a half!

I have the 1/72 Airfix EE Lightning which is meant to be a really good kit, looking forward to building it.

Caught up on the latest batch of Infinity. A few new releases coming up, but not much need for more. ASoIaF is on the table now after which I'm probably just done with that game. Getting my Khador army back in full competitive shape next, after which I might try to focus on WMH in general and get that cleared out of the backlog.

Caught back up on Marvel. I've got a few models trickling in from Infinity, Bushido, and Malifaux I'll need to paint, but that's not really the pile. Time to reorganize and decide what to tackle next:

Guild Ball
- A few alchemists I picked up to round out the team.
- Brewers. Full team to paint. Tempted to sell, but... I should probably just do this next and have them done.

Age of Sigmar
- Some Sylvaneth forests that were supposed to be commissioned by I'm probably just going to have to get back and do myself.

40k
- 22 assorted Deathwatch Marines that I don't REALLY need but should get off the backlog.
- 2 Questoris and 2 Armiger Knights
- Draigo for my unplayable Grey Knights
- 14 Sisters of Battle

Warmachine/Hordes
- A few Menoth models for the Khador theme
- 2 units of Iron Fang Pikemen
- A unit of Idrians
- Trollblood half of the 2 player starter
- A unit of Northkin Raiders and Hooch Hauler
- Random Circle stuff

... Also one random MonPoc monster to finish

A lot of this sits in a weird gap of stuff I'll probably never play but don't really have a good way to get rid of either. I'm overall down hundreds of models in the backlog and I just need to buckle down and finish. Part of me wants to wipe Guild Ball off the list entirely, but I should probably do the Northkin stuff next. They're one of the few things I have ZERO plan to ever sell.

Stuff I never expect to play but have no way to get rid of always gives me heartburn, it's just taking up space that I could be using for other things.

Finished painting the Alchemists. Wasn't ever going to sell this little part and they were a pretty quick project all and all. Also decided to test out color shift paints on that Monpoc figure. Nearly done, probably going to try adding another coat... maybe not, we'll see.

I've got a ton of new stuff coming for Malifaux that will be the bulk of my March work. While I wait for it to arrive I'm just taking care of a few 40k HQs to keep chipping away.

Well, February was fairly productive - 33 Necron models completed, getting that army off to a decent start.

Spoiler:

Royal Warden, Plasmancer, 2 Cryptothralls, 9 Canoptek Scarab Swarm bases, 20 Necron Warriors


On the other hand, this is offset by getting some cheap Necron reinforcements via Imperium issues from Forbidden Planet (10 Warriors, 3 Scarab Swarms, 1 Cryptek) and an order of stuff from GW...
