Because somebody has to start it.

Taking stock of what I had unpainted as of the new year:

One Daemon Princess
One Outrider Chaplain
Fifteen Assault Intercessors
Three Eradicators
Two Invader ATVs*
One highly modular Gladiator tank
One Brood Lord
One Neurothrope
Eight Tyranid Warriors
Two Zoanthropes
Three Venomthropes
30 Hormagaunts
24 14 Termagaunts
10 Ripper Swarms
10 Gargoyles
Three Genestealers
One Spore Mine
One Trygon
Three Hive Guard

I also plan to pick up the following either when they are released or whenever GW takes their thumb out and starts shipping Tyranids out again:
Three Zoanthropes
Three Venomthropes
Three Tyrant Guard
Three Raveners
One Biovore
Two Carnifexes
One Exocrine
One Maleceptor
One box of Heavy Intercessors
One Gravis Captain
One Storm Speeder

There's a pretty good chance I will add a Tervigon and a Tryannofex to the list as well, and a Librarian Dreadnought isn't entirely out of the question. I don't think that's an unrealistic pile to knock out in 2021.

What might throw a wrench in the plan is that seeing the new Slannesh models for AoS makes me suspect that Emperor's Children might have a TSons/DG style book on the way, and a wave of Noise Marines styled like those AoS models would be hard to pass up.

* In my defense I'd have never used an Apothecary on them because that combo was [censored].

I can't even begin to list my pile by individual units/models, it would be too much. However, my plan is to cut off the purchases this year unless GW does a big new Eldar release. Maybe I'll keep track of the actual models that I get painted, which currently sits at a single sister of battle flamer (testing colour scheme).

2020 was the best year to date for clearing the backlog. 115 done. 2 purchased. I still have years of projects left so just going to keep chipping away.

Continuing Old World Warriors of Chaos first. Then I think I'll work on 40k Chaos with some detours for terrain and the odd Cities or Gloomspite project.

Nothing new unless something blows me away and only if I sell a large amount to justify it.

2020 didn't pan out quite how I thought; I didn't manage to finish the 28mm ImagiNation line infantry in time for New Year's. As I only have a couple hours a week I can paint, and I'm generally quite slow, it's been a right drag. But, I'm on the home stretch with them now, and the new UK lockdown hopefully means I'll have them finished (if not based) by the end of January. But, in the 3 months that I actually knuckled down and painted, I got a unit of skeletons done and got the ImagiNations infantry (20 of them) built, primed and basecoated, so I'm still quite proud of my progress. It's more than I've done in the last 5 years combined!

I have 4 spare ImagiNation infantry that I want to paint up as Jaegers, and then I'll build and paint a couple more as cannon crew. After that, it'll be painting 10mm sci fi (about 100 tiny minis) while assembling a horde of 28mm orcs for Kings Of War, Oathmark and other, smaller size games.

I did quite well in 2020, if I include the 6 feet of GW trenches and bunkers I’m finishing (technically they were started in 2020) I’ll hit 100 completions for the year.

Will aim for the same this year, mix of vehicles and infantry (more vehicles would be good). Won’t come close to finishing the pile, but it will make a dent!

Last year wasn't one of my better years as COVID played havoc on my personal life (like everyone else, I assume), so I managed a total of 45 minis in 2020 and ended up buying way more than I could get painted.

Going into 2021, I have in my pile of shame:

Space Marines:
3x Bladeguard Vets
3x Outriders
3x Eradicators
1x Bladeguard Ancient
1x Chaplain
1x Gravis Cap
4x Lieutenants
1x Ancient
19x Intercessors
11x Hellblasters
6x Inceptors
1x Repulsor

1x Crimson Hunter
1x Avatar
4x Farseers
3x Warlocks
4x metal Wraithguard
5x Wraithguard
4x Fire Dragons
7x Warp Spiders

Exodites (separate because of conversions)
1x Farseer
5x Dire Avengers
10x Storm Guardians
5x Shining Spears

Bought a load of Tyranids so now I have:
1x Hive Tyrant
2x Carnifexes
10x Gargoyles
1x Lictor
30+ Termagants
30+ Hormagaunts
10x Genestealers
5x Tyrant Guard
2x Zoanthropes
6x Spore Mines
1x Biovore

Nighthaunt
82x Chainrasps
14x Banshees
1x Tomb Banshee
4x Grimghast reapers
2x Spirit Torment
2x Chainghasts
1x Horse Lord guy
1x nightmare lantern guy

Unfortunately this is only scratching the surface of what I have to do, I have a bunch of BSF minis and scale models to finish as well.

I've started well this year though, no minis bought in the first 11 days of the year!

Going into the year I have the following unfinished models to get through:

Blood Angels:
Primaris Captain (Indomitus)
Primaris Captain (Know No Fear)
Terminator Captain
Primaris Lieutenant
Lemartes
Primaris Chaplain
Judiciar (started - finished in January)
Sanguinary Priest
Bladeguard Ancient
3 x Bladeguard Veterans
3 x Eradicators
10 x Assault Intercessors
8 x Intercessors
10 x Tactical Marines
15 x Death Company Marines
3 x Inceptors
5 x Hellblasters
3 x Reivers (I think I will only really paint these as I like the models)
3 x Primaris Outriders
Repulsor
Baal Predator
Drop Pod

Death Guard:
8 x Plague Marines
16 x Poxwalkers (blocked colours done though)
Myphitic Blight Hauler
Rhino

Necrons:
Indomitus models

I'm going to focus on finishing my Death Guard and I estimate that with the models I've painted already and the addition of a Plague Surgeon, I'll have a 1000 point army finished for whenever games start again. Then I'll switch between Blood Angels and Necrons after 500 points or so at a time, just to break things up (though I think the Indomitus box is only around 800 points?). If I can get a 1500 point BA army together I'll be delighted with myself.

2020 was relatively successful for me – started with just over 120 models unbuilt/unpainted, purchased 5-6, sold about 20, painted a bunch...

Now I'm down to 39. I realized that, in trying to get the backlog down as efficiently as possible, I mostly painted troops – so now I basically have a ton of characters and skirmish minis left to paint, all of which are quite time-consuming. I also got 5 converted AOS chaos knights, 3 Varanguard and a Chaos Warshrine (which I'm going to convert atop a giant crab from Mierce Minatures). And I'm planning to get the Slaves to Darkness warband for Underworlds. So very aware I'm already digging a hole for myself – no more purchases for a few of months!

So far this year I've painted Jain Zar and got started on the 2 Su Jian. I realized that one of the reasons I wasn't painting characters was that I was kind of intimidated by them, feeling like I couldn't do a good enough job. But painting the Jain Zar, I just kind of slapped paint on her, and she looks okay I think so that's been quite reassuring. So now I'm looking forward to having a few months of painting fun one-offs.

I have a pretty small list.....

1. Early Republic Roman Army- 50-100 models
2. Viking Warband- 60 Models
3. Handful of Aeronef (Surplus to need)- 10-12?
4. Handful of surplus to need 6mm cavalry- 2 Bases
5. Surplus to need Greek Hoplites- 20 Models?
6. Fantasy 28mm Surplus to Need minis- 2

I have very little need to paint the surplus to need models, but I CAN if I want to.

My focus will be on the initial 50 Early Republican Romans that I need to have finished by November when osprey releases Wars of the Republic.

To that end, I finished the initial 10 Skirmishers this weekend. Prior to that, I also finished 2 Aeronef ships. Therefore, I have all ready painted a dozen models in 2021!

Starting off the year focusing on Warmachine with the Riot Quest updates.

Crucible Guard - Rocketmen
Khador - Some solos, a couple jacks
Mercs - Some dwarf stuff mostly.
Trolls - Some storm of the north stuff.

After that, there's a few big pile o'shame projects I need to clear:

Malifaux Outcasts - Bandits, Obliteration, Plague
Malifaux Arcanists - Performers, Wildfire
Malifaux Ten Thunders - Last Blossom

Guild Ball - Brewers

Relic Knights - Star Nebula Corsairs

I have plenty of other stuff in the pile sadly, but these are the priority projects that could be truly finished as opposed to evergreen projects like MCP.

I'm not even going to try to catalogue what's in The Pile, especially since much of it is in storage. However I do know that I want it to get smaller, so for this year my goals will be:
  • (1) Paint at least twelve models in 2021 (equivalent to one model per month).
  • (2) By the end of the year, (Models Painted + Models Sold) < Models Bought.

  •

    2020 mixed bag. Otoh painted like crazy(5 armies 2k-4k, 2-3k for another old army, started 6th army and lotsa lotr models) bought also ton preparing for brexit making hobby pricier which it did. Now quite a few of bought(the 5 armies for one...) were painted but particularly 2nd hand deal on 5k stormcasts put me on backburner.

    Not sure what was end result so this year will make list of bought and completed models. For both will count ordered/started but arrived/completed as this year model.

    To motivate further no buying models unless i complete same number previous month! Tricky start. Received order i had made december...so atm i'm 38 models bought, 0 painted. Good news is over 100 models in various stages to completion...

    edit: And stuff that is in waiting:

    FEC: Assorted ghouls, unmounted terrorgheist waiting completion, 1 endless spell
    Ogres: 12 gluttons, 2 ironblaster, 20 gnoblar
    Lumineth: calthallar, 5 dawnriders
    Stormcast: Oh about 5k worth of stuff
    Slaves to darkness: About 3.5k worth of stuff(lots are just waiting bases)
    Gloomspite: about 2.4k? plus this will be getting reinforcements

    40k side miscelangelous necrons and SOB waiting to be done but overall fairly good situation there.

    On the Crimson Path

    For me, 2020 was kinda like running on a treadmill. I accomplished a lot of painting, but also added quite a bit too. I do want 2021 to be a year of finishes. I suppose keeping track of the pile here wouldn't be a bad way to go about it. I think I will divide things based on the game they are for break it up a bit.

    Kill Team

    Unfinished Painting
    Orks: Flash Gitz, Mega Armor Nobs
    Imperial Guard: Tempestus Scions, Guardsmen
    Adeptus Mechanius: Sicarians, Tech Priest Dominus, Tech Priest Manipulus, Dune Crawler
    Death Guard: Blight Lord Terminators
    Thousand Sons: Rubric Marines, Scarab Occult Terminators
    Tau: Pathfinders, Drones (misc.),

    Unfinished Building
    Tau: Crisis Suits Note: I haven't finished building these models since the Start Collecting was first introduced

    Warhammer 40,000

    Black Legion
    Unfinished Painting: Chaos Space Marine Squad x1, Havoc Squads x3, Obliterators, Greater Possessed, Dark Apostle, Chaos Sorcerer, Master of Possession, Haarken Worldclaimer, Abbadon, Vemon Crawler, Predator x2

    Avenging Eagles (Primaris space marines)
    Unfinished Painting: Outriders, Blade Guard, Chaplain, Indomitus Chaplain, Indomitus Captain, Indomtius Lt, Indomitus Ancient, Judicator, Primaris Captain, Primaris Librarian, Repulsor, Repulsor Excutioner, Stormraven
    Unfinished Building: Outriders, Blade Guard, Assault Intercessors, Eradicators, Plasma Inceptors

    Genestealer Cult
    Unfinished Painting: Abberants Squad x3, Acolyte Squad, half a Neophyte Squad, Jackal Biker Squad x4, Ridgerunner x4, Goliath Truck x3, basically all the HQ characters

    Necrons:
    Unfinished Painting: Necron Warriors x6, Scarabs x4, Reanimator x2, Overlord, Royal Warden, Plasmancer, Cryptothralls, Skorptek Lord, Skorptek Destroyers x2, Plasmacyte x3
    Unfinished Building: Doom Scythe


    Age of Sigmar

    Slaves to Darkness
    Unfinished Painting: SC Chaos Warriors, Chaos Knights unit x4, Mindstealer Spharix, Chaos Shrine, Chaos Chariot x2, Corvus Cabal, Cypher Lords, Chaos Lord on foot, Daemon Prince, Furies, Endless Spells
    Unfinished Building: Archaon

    Lumineth Realm Lords
    Unfinished Painting: Wardens unit x2, Sentinels unit x2, Stone Guard unit x4, Spirit of the Mountain, Avalenor, Teclis, Stone Mage, Light of Eltharion, Scinari Cathallar


    Bought in 2021

    So... yeah, quite a bit to work on. I want to get the full 40k armies finished the most. Followed by the Age of Sigmar ones. The Kill Team stuff would be nice, but looking over that list as well as number of things I want to get round out at least my Chaos Space Marines (Raptors/Warp Talons, Chaos Terminators) and Primaris Space Marines (a number of the post-Indomitus kits). The good thing is that most everything has a good chunk of the base paint colors blocked in already. Also, going by basically model kit boxes, there are more than a couple things that are nearly done, but for whatever reason I just haven't finished.

    What is going to set me back the most is that my 2021 army is Necrons. If it were any other faction that was re-done for 40k I would have probably avoided them, but Necrons are so quick and easy to paint. I picked up another Indomitus cheap. I figured why not as I have a very clear idea how I want to paint them. Not sure if I am going to build them to a full army just yet.

    Cozy cockpit of an Imperial Knight

    Last year I managed to paint forty-two models, which is a lot for someone like me, but nowhere near enough to make a dent in the massive reserves of unpainted stuff I have lying about.

    Unlike last year I will not be setting hard goals for myself or try to push to have certain projects done, as that led to nothing but misery and a hobby burnout last year. I'll be glad if I can get forty-three models done for 2021.

    That said, I do want to try and master, or at the very least get a little bit better at painting both yellow and white things, two of those dreaded colours I have been avoiding a lot over the years.

    And I will be trying to stick to the 2020 hobby resolution list again, hopefully crossing off more than last year, and serving as a starting point for larger projects.

    Im meant to be priming all my Nighthaunt this summer but everywhere Ive looked has been out of spray primers for plastics for like 6 months now. Its doing my head in.

    Since the end of october in 2019 I've been keeping track of purchases and painted minis, and up until a big Kickstarter (Deserts of the Dead, amazing minis) arrived, I could honestly say that I was ahead. Now however...

    So, my goal is to be in the positive again. I have made my cutoff point 31-10 for the painting year, so I can more easily count what I paint. But one day I will get through all of it. One day...

    I was not thinking about paint shortages when I gave Rustoleum primer a try all those years ago, but today I'm glad I did. Basing a Tyranid scheme on Alazarin Crimson and Black Plum, not so much.

    33x additional Battletech models from the Kickstarter
    +whatever comes in the second wave of the Kickstarter
    5x dnd minis

    On the plus side. I did get an airbrush for Christmas so hopefully, in a few months, I can just knock out all the Battletech minis in like a single weekend using the airbrush to make some simple paint schemes on them.

    Have you tried undercoating by brush or using an airbrush to prime? Both work just fine.

    You are not the only person I have seen with this "spray primer" problem. I am glad I never got into the habit of spray priming due to the cold climate I live in. I would only have a very short window to get anything done!

    Granted, undercoating by brush sucks, but at least you can still get it done.

    Wow! That is a pretty good list.

    I actually took my Robotech Tactics off my list as I NEVER intend on building or painting them. They are sitting far, far, away in storage. Perhaps never to be seen again?

    On the painting front, I have been plugging away on my Roman army. I finished a unit of 10 Skirmishers, and done the model painting on 8 guys, with the rest having skin, sandals, and tunics done. These guys will take longer to finish as they all have shields too, while the skirmishers didn't.

    Decided to keep track of this for this year currently I'm 17 painted to 227 in. Bloodborne kickstarter mainly but several Bones models I've had my eye on for years as well.

    "But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

    Only project I wanted to make sure I got done was finishing my unit of Orcs. In that regard I got them painted and done! In total 115 models painted last years which is 10 more then what I painted in 2019.

    This year I might finally sit down and finish painting some of the board games I bought but haven't gotten around to painting. My Conan box has 105 models in it, of which I have painted 35. So I'm 1/3 of the way through it so I might just buckle down and finish that one first.

    I haven't finished any of my own stuff, but I did finish about a dozen pieces of terrain, some Fallout 'bots, and Bender on commission.

    At least I shrunk a Pile of Shame even if it wasn't my pile of shame.

    Starting off the year focusing on Warmachine with the Riot Quest updates.

    Crucible Guard - Rocketmen
    Khador - Some solos, a couple jacks
    Mercs - Some dwarf stuff mostly.
    Trolls - Some storm of the north stuff.

    After that, there's a few big pile o'shame projects I need to clear:

    Malifaux Outcasts - Bandits, Obliteration, Plague
    Malifaux Arcanists - Performers, Wildfire
    Malifaux Ten Thunders - Last Blossom

    Guild Ball - Brewers

    Relic Knights - Star Nebula Corsairs

    I have plenty of other stuff in the pile sadly, but these are the priority projects that could be truly finished as opposed to evergreen projects like MCP.


    Got the Rocketmen done! Next up I'm catching up on Marvel before diving back into Warmachine for a bit.

    Let's talk pile of shame! In 2020, I manged to make a ton of progress on space marines, but also started Tau, and even though I got most of the Tau painted, 2020 was at best a mild net gain on my pile. I did make a lot of progress on stuff like terrain, and I also sold a lot of stuff, but a lot of what I sold was bought in 2020... so...

    Anyway, for 2021, I really want to focus on my current projects. Of course, Literally on the second day of 2021 I went to a swap meet, and bought a huge pile of WFB high elves. I was able to sell enough to make my money back plus a little, but kept enough to build a nice little force. I still have some primaris marines, including the stuff I bought for indomitus, and some older projects. the list below isn't comprehensive, but is probably a decent inventory of everything I will work on this year:

    Tau (Primed)
    Stormsurge
    Etheral
    Bomber

    Space Marines:
    35 Dark Imperium Intercessors (currently ready to prime)
    Indomitus characters (on the workbench)
    6 ETB Reivers (reday to prim)
