All in all the Grey Knights are fine(Im going to do all of their eye later when done, but that is it, im doing OSL
My hope for this week in 2 barc speeders(Almost done) and maybe 15 terminators

I don't remember when I last posted. But I finished off some gloomspite gitz models, a bunch of necromunda terrain, primed some more terrain, and started working on some necromunda bounty hunters. Getting ready to work up my Goliath Gang for necromunda, and will probably be sliding backwards a bit with some new escher models when the new book drops.

Honestly, if I can keep up this pace, my backlog may be finished faster than expected. (Though that backlog is still months away).

It's been a while since I last posted in here, but I've finished around 50 CSM models since my last post. I'm just doing the small details on the last 10 while the undercoat dries on about 50 more models in the garden.

Unhealthy Competition With Other Legions




I painted up a good chunk of my Ogor Kingdom models. I have 18 bulls painted up, 4 lead belchers, and a cannon. Just need to finish the 2 tyrants, a cannon, the 4 thunder tusk cavalry, and a stone horn. I have a butcher and slaughter master to assemble, prime, and paint next.

Other items in various states of painting: the Chaos Start Collecting box. The warriors are based and washed but need to be high lighted to complete. Same with the Karkadrak. The Knights need to be assembled and primed. That will top off my 5,000 points of Chaos (primarily Slaves to Darkness with some Beasts, Nurgle, Slaanesh, and Tzeentch). I also have assembled Zacharius on his Zombie Dragon. Just need to paint and base it. I've got some 4,000 points of Death now. Mainly Legions of Nagash.

40k wise, I finished up my Plague Marines, Blight Lords, and Death Shroud. I've got Mortarion, Typhus, and a Crawler to finish so I can call this force complete at 2,000 points. Mortarion is still in a box. I finished up another 10 man volkite squad for my Dark Angels and I have Asmodai, Belial, and a squad of Tartaros terminators to finish my Dark Angels which puts me at 3,000 points ish. I have 1 Space Wolf flyer, 1 terminator, and a Rune Smith in Power Armor to finish my 3,000 points of Wolves. The flyer is still in a box. My plan once these are done is to take inventory of my Eldar. I've these since 3rd edition and just want to finish them for the sake of finishing them since I know they can be fun . I did paint up 5 farseers (Saim Hann) and none were duplicates and 8 warlocks. This army has been built, primed, some painted, some base coated, etc. I'm staring at a Wraith Lord and 2 War Walkers that have base coats but I have 5 Wraith Guard and the Lord of War painted up. I also know I have 30 Dire Avengers and 60 Guardians painted. I have a bunch of OLD aspect warriors to paint up and an avatar too!

I agree with you on the Warmachine. Nobody paints their models for this game which makes me not want to paint my models. Painting models relaxes me. I just put on a witty tv show like Lost, Scrubs, or the Office and listen while I'm painting. I can do a movie that I've seen many times too (Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, Kingdom of Heaven, etc.) and just lose myself for an afternoon

My issue is more that I just have like... a thousand painted warmachine models as is. I've just gotten spoiled with all the games where I get to sit down, paint and finish one model and have something significant to add to my game that's unique to what I've painted before. Large units are just feeling repetitive these days.

Finished another Chaos Rhino today, got about 50 more models underway, and i’ve finally broken and ordered some more which will round out the infantry side of my Chaos army. Waiting to see if we get new Chaos tanks before I commit to any more vehicles.

I've made a good dent on my pile of shame this year, with a bit of help from the isolation!

My year goal was to paint my small Custodes forces, I though that was a perfectly reasonable goal and should be easy enough. I had a squad or two done when we were sent home and since I've managed to paint all the rest of them, minus a Pallas tank and 1 Venatari as I've ran out of primer! Looks like it'll be done very soon (going to buy primer soon-ish), so very happy about that!

But while out of primer, I still had many things already primed laying around, and with lots of time on my hand I tackled many random models and units!

I painted a unit of 10 Rubric Marines, 21 Tzaangor and a Maulerfiend for my TS! Rubric weren't that fun to do so while I have more primed and ready I don't feel like doing more for now

I also painted all my Start Collecting Eldar box which was pretty cool to do too. I bough more Eldar stuff (oop from ebay mostly) that will hopefully complete more-or-less my Iyanden force (along with a future second Start Collecting box).

Then with most things done, I did the few Tyranids I have left. I painted a Flyrant and 3 Tyrant Guards, and will probably work on some warriors next. I also build some gaunts to complete my devourer unit as well as order a few more to complete another unit that was not maxed out.

Along with building a few random items here and there (I'm strangely nearly out of things to build), I made good progress I think! Now I've bough a few things here and there on ebay and waiting on them, but since I practically completed my Custodes and what I have of Eldar, I'm pretty happy with that and not to ashamed to add more! When I get more primer though (probably this week) I'll have a whole new range of things to work on!

Tomb Kings army - Over 10,000pts
Vampire Counts army - About 8,000pts
Tyranids army - Under construction, but around 5,000pts already.

Finished my Necromunda gang now, and my last Batman model is almost finished. With those that's 2 systems ticked off again, and although I've picked up a few more models over the weekend this keeps me at a 1:2 purchased:painted ratio so I'm still in the clear

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, Malifaux and The Other Side as well, but my main game is the Batman Miniatures Game.

On my plate is a 2000 point horde army of classic metal stormtroopers and steel legion, plus three models to be Skoripus Duneriders for my Adeptus Mechanicus because I hate the way the Skorpius model looks.
And my skitarii codex said they walked everywhere, which is why all their vehicles had legs and I converted a half dozen imperial guard vehicles with legs! I guess they don't only walk any more.

Forgive me, Dakka, for I have sinned.

My pile of shame, now cataloged, is enormous. Easily 1000+ minis to do, including boxed games and the like. Instead of despairing, I figure I'd set a goal in this thread for my year-end expectations for 2020. I intend to complete my Dark Angels and World Eaters forces by year's end. To be specific, I'd like to complete the following:

DA:
27 Devastators
1 Leviathan
1 Contemptor
1 Land Raider
2 Drop Pods
10 Infiltrators
3 Suppressors
1 Deathwing Master
3 Bikes
1 Darkshroud
20 Hellblasters
Belial
3 Company Veterans
1 Apothecary
1 Master
1 Ancient
1 DW Ancient
1 DW Chaplain
25 DW Terminators
20 Intercissors

WE:
10 Havocs
1 Exalted Champion
5 Chosen
11 Berzerkers
5 Terminators

I think this is easily doable by year's end. Hopefully after that I can get to my Circle, or maybe my Legion.

One Keeper of Secrets and five Seekers down, only ten Daemonnettes stand between me and 100% painted.

...and I have a Knight on order that's almost certain to arrive before I finish them. Still, my goal was to finish everything I owned on January 1 in 2020, and I hit that milestone without even slowing down.

That defines mercenary behavior, just like a good Dogs of War army should!

I finished painting up the last 6mm Elephants. Now, I just need to base about 8 units and the two Diadochi armies are done.

Once done I have the following left to paint:
- 5 Gangsters- 28mm
- 3 Fantasy Models- 28mm
- 3 Martian Drones- 18mm

Then I am done with my pile of shame.

Just about done painting some of the forgeworld bounty hunters for Necromunda. Still gotta do the bases. but that shouldn't take very long next time I sit down. Then I'm gonna work on my goblins again. Next month I'm placing a large forgeworld order some Necromunda so I'm making my pile a little bit larger, but I feel justified because I'm actively playing Necromunda, and most of my backlog is 40k which I haven't played in over a year and AOS which I have played exactly once a year ago.

Wow, so many of you getting close to finishing your piles of shame! You’re making me feel guilty for eyeing up the new Blackstone Fortress stuff... must finish more first, but my last project took 6 weeks to do 7 minis! Still I’m 69 done for the year, with only 25 bought, so 44 nett. That’s pretty good for me! I need to do some large half finished units to get that count up!

My pile of shame continues to grow.

I've finished my:
Praetorians,
metal Cadians,
metal Catachans,
metal Hive Tyrant,
scratch built turrets for my Leman Russ and my Chimera,
2 "count as" mortars.

I've since stripped my Ratskins. They were ok and almost matched but not enough. I've stripped a dozen random Marines I'd undercoated black but now want white, I've stripped a Necromunda figure for my kid to do, my Arbites didn't work so I've stripped them back again again. Thinking about stripping my plastic Catachans. Bought some cool missiles for a WW. Busy building and converting a turret for that, my Evesor has been stripped for the 3rd time this month and I've recently brought my dad's WHFB stuff out of storage and want to finish up what he couldn't.

Oh and then make terrain.
