Trying to get geared up for more painting during this crisis so I finished off 1 Flapper and 1 Fantasy figure.

I went to use some new techniques on the Fantasy figure, but Reaper Bones white is just not up to the challenge. the details are too shallow. Reaper Bones Black is MUCH better. Therefore, I just reverted back to a simple block and Wash method.

Working hard on the pile of shame over here as well.

The goal is 30 models per month for 2020, I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

Some good news for me, the past couple weeks have allowed me to focus on some outstanding models, including:

Legion - Stormtrooper specialists, Dewback, Crawler tank
Necron Lycheguard & Cryptarch (from Forgebane)

Unfortunately, they have been replaced with a box of Seraphon/Lizardman temple Guard, skinks, dactls and a Tyranid Red Terror.

For now, I keep staring at my Castellan knight and am trying to work up the courage to airbrush it (I’m new to airbrushing).

It never ends well

Ok so this doesn't sound good, but I bought a Command Squad and Devastator squad, butttt these are to make use of all the bits, with all the Devastator bits and my bits box I can make 4 Legion heavy support squads, and the Command Squad is a bits fest I can combine with all my Mk3's and 4's to make various heroes and unit upgrades, my kit bash mind has also noticed all the open hands and fists for the Devastator Sergeant so I might knock up a Despoiler squad that actually looks like its fighting in combat

It's not really removing things from the Pile Of Shame, but I got a bunch of stuff primed today. An Achillus Contemptor*, five Sagittarius Custodes**, 20 Daemonettes, a Seeker Chariot, and five Fallout Ghouls***.

Progress is progress right?

* - Kit bashed.
** - Also kit bashed.
*** - I'm not sure these count since they're a commision and therefore someone else's Pile Of Shame.

24 models in seven days would be impressive even if two of them weren't Repulsors.

Two whole days with no posts in the Pile of Shame thread? It won't even get bumped to the top by this post. Huh, Dakka Dakka apparently has a time-limit on adding a post by the same user to their previous post. Didn't know that.

Finished off another 5-man Intercessor group and a box of Fallout Ghouls. I've decided the Ghouls count since they're part of a Pile of Shame even of it's not my Pile of Shame, and I've seen that guy's basement. Pile of Shame doesn't do it justice, it's Hoarders: Burried Alive for nerds.

Man nothing done the last 2 days as I've had to do a bunch of overtime at work due to obvious reasons.

Hopefully I can get to work on more Orcs tonight.

Confessing some sins. I am doing real bad with the not purchasing part. This spring I have just rolled into good buying opportunities on retro minis.

Got a large, luckily mostly well painted empire 90s army, which added 150ish painted minis and about 15 unpainted, then someone sold 30 gorkamorka diggas for cheap, so those just arrived in my mailbox. And today I bought another load of 90s empire minis, which was about 30 more minis.

At least the massive metal empire army I am now sitting on means I can sell of practically all my plastic empire minis. The diggas also look extremely easy to paint, being practically all skin.

Painting is moving along well on other stuff though.

Just hit the target of 30 models again for March...mainly supported by 24 LOTR Morannon Orcs. Added a few Infinity O-12 Kappa's and several misc. LOTR heroes.

You know, with everything that is going on right now and all the lockdowns, these piles of shame are beginning to look a lot like solid planning on our part...

Ten more Daemonnettes. 45 models for March so far, with decent odds of finishing another five Hellblasters and making it an even 50.

I thought MonPoc came pre-painted. Been a long time since I paid much attention to Privateer Press's non-Warmachine product lines though.

Long time lurker, first time poster (to this thread).

I promised myself as part of my 2020 hobby resurrection year I would enter the Dakka Painting Challenge once the annual rotation kicked off in March, so the initial goal was one entry in each month from March for a total of 10.

I wanted to make sure there was a chance I could make a dent in my pile of shame before committing to this thread .

So far, I've managed to complete my first model for the year for the March round.
Spoiler:

I considered whether to exclude gifts, Kickstarters from previous years (delivered this year), but I guess it all adds to the pile in the end.

So, I have a more "fluid" set of goals, or levels of achievement as it were:
  • 1. Bought models: 0
  • 2. Bought plus gifts: 3
  • 3. Dakka Painting Challenge: 10 (minimum)
  • 4. Bought plus gifts plus other: 3 (this will jump up dramaticaly when my Limbo Kickstarter gets delivered )

  • Current status:
  • Unopened models: TBC
  • Unbuilt models: 2 + TBC
  • Built models: 1 + TBC
  • Completed models: 1

  • Currently beating level 1. Level 2 is "currently" easily within reach. Level 3 is the current goal for the year.

    Catchya,
    Arakasi

    I only just caught up on my 10-per-month goal by doing up some gribblies. A quick get-out-of-jail-free project or two. I'm amassing a small plastic mountain mainly because I received stuff as gifts recently and some of them were completely unplanned. I'll ignore those as I concentrate on some proper projects.

    The original version of the game from over a decade ago was blind purchase pre-paints, but died out when that whole industry went under after the housing crash. A couple years ago the game got relaunched as a resin hobby line with some really great improvements to the game and some excellent, if unpainted models.

    They weren’t quite grey, but I finished up some 4th edition High Elf Archers and Repeater Bolt Thrower after what must be the best part of 20 years! That counts in the fight against the pile of shame right? They get me to 58 painted for the year with 13 bought, so nett 45 ain’t bad.

    Some of you are getting through the stash at a good rate! GW closing production must surely be helping to limit the pile growth too.

    Fair enough, but base coating and the initial color blocking is the easy part. The details are what takes up the most time.

    Since last saturday i only got a bit done.
    1 tau commander, 3 Fire sight Marksmen, 1 Kroot Shaper and Ratlings, with some Airbrushing done too.
    Telecommuting was in full swing and while i could in theory paint during it(Im just watching training videos) it did damper it quite a bit.
    Right now im working on 20 breachers. IDK when i will be done with those....
