I'm aiming for these 2021 hangovers:

KoW Northern Alliance army. This year I hope to get a 1500 pt army painted, including...

* Assorted 1980s Dwarf minis, mostly with 1980s era paint jobs so at least needing a wash or two...

* Blood Rage minis to be my main human forces. Mostly primed, some painting done.

* Three Shieldwolf Amazon riding bears. Assembled and primed.

* Three Mierce Walrus Dudes. Assembled and primed. These will be Snow Trolls.

Plus, ALL NOO FOR 22:

Five chaos space marine bikers
One chaos lord biker

One space dorf airship (converted toy)
One space dorf land train (bought as a 3D print)
One space dorf drill vehicle (converted toy)
At least two squads of space dorfs

Other than that there's around 25 assorted models for various Warcry bands - assembled, but not even base coated yet.
And another 50+ random figures (all manufacturers) in the misc. box.

Things will be deleted as I accomplish them.

As of March 1st? I've taken about 1 step forward (got some stuff built) & about 3 backwards as I'm now building/painting a Grot tank army....
So anything in this list looks like it won't be changing status for some time.

As of May 18th:
A few things got built.... Paintwise? I've got about 90 40k grots finished - 1/2 of wich don't really count as they're just crew for guns & are irrelevant for actual play....

July 9th:
Work continues on the Grot project.
And I now have a big box of Horus Heresy to get table ready asap. I've chosen Iron Warriors to help speed this project along.

The pile is big, so I have to list it by project instead.

Green for projects I would love to finish in 2022, orange for projects I want to work on and red for those that will likely stay untouched

Big projects (hundreds of unfinished minis or similar effort)
Fantasy - Empire Army of Ostermark
Fantasy - Skaven Skryre horde
Fantasy - Dwarf army - bought in 2021
40k - Tyranids
40k - 122nd Cadian
40k - Vogen city board - bought 2021 D-4 Manufactorium
FoW - Mid/Late war germans

Medium projects (20-100 remaining)
Fantasy - Kislev rota 1000pts army shot
Fantasy - The peoples crusade (empire fanatics)
Fantasy - The golden army (Dogs of war Myrmydians)
Fantasy - Karl Franz' 1st Armoured Engineer regiment
Fantasy - Norscan hordes 2000pts army shot
Fantasy - RPG monsters and heroes
Fantasy - Tomb kings Chariots
Fantasy - Mordheim Marienburg warband Current warband
40k - Vogen renegades Example Squad
40k - Vostroyan company - bought 2021
40k - Steel legion company - bought 2021
40k - Krieg company
40k - Ecclessiarchy battlegroup - bought 2021
Post apoc - Fallout heroes and villains
Team yankee - Soviet VDV battalion
FoW - Midwar Americans
FoW - Midwar Italians

Small projects (Less than 20 minis remaining)
40k - Night Lords warband - bought 2021
40k - Armoured company Action shot
40k - Imperial Fists strike force - bought 2021
Walking dead - Survivors and walkers

Would be nice if I was able to actually finish some projects, but knowing myself, my priorities will probably change several times during the year, and looking at all the additional armies I added in 2021, there might be some more additions. I find it very hard to resist good deals on middle/oldhammer armies in particular

Thanks for starting this again. Really helped last year!

Feeling like I might actually be able to get caught up this year. Long ways to go, easy to fail, but lets write it all down and see what we have to do:

High Priority Stuff:

- Misaki Crew
- English Ivan Crew
- Anya Crew
- All the new stuff releasing

- Picked up a few new models to finish up O-12 but more or less complete!

A Song of Ice and Fire
- Kind of lost interest in this, but picked up the new Night's Watch heroes so I can have Coldhands and Sam and Gilly so I need to get them painted.

The Pile of So Much Shame:

- 2 Units of Iron Fang Pikemen
- A small set of Menoth stuff for Old Faith Theme
- A unit of Northkin and the Hooch Hauler
- Some various starter plastics I might sell
- A unit of Idrians I might just sell
- Random Circle stuff I should probably either finish or sell

- Sylvaneth Tress
- A couple Sisters/DW units I have no real use for
- My Knights army

Guild Ball
- Brewers Team

Upcoming Kickstarters:

Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika
Monsterpocalypse.... soooooo much Monpoc

Things I'm tempted to start:

A Blood Bowl team
An Ork army

Last year, I got my backlog to 0 models. That means this year I am starting fresh.

I got the following all ready for 2022 projects:

1 Reaper Nativity- 10 models- Done
2 boxes of Dark Age Irish- 80 Models
USAF Korean War 1/600- 31 minis
Communist Aircraft Korean War 1/600- 39 models
1/1200 Greek Triremes - 5 models

I all ready have 10 minis done for this year! Only 155 more to go!

It would take me a year just to type out my pile.

My goal is to finish any 5 from a list of 10 or so major projects (most are about 1000 pts of leftovers from previous army painting pledges).
Leaving a flex slot open for when GW blindsides me with a must-have new side game again.

I also have too many models to lists so I'm focusing on ancients and medieval projects this year.

I have the following full projects:

Pontic (Almost done, just basing the last of them)
Roman Slave Revolt
Arabs (Which is about 3 times bigger than the others)
28mm Oathmark Humans, using fireforge crusaders

The following minors projects that don't need many models or are morphs of existing armies:

Fixes for existing armies (New editions need new minis)
Western Successors

I also have "Leftovers", models unpainted as my army lists didn't need all the models in a box. Hopefully this won't become a project.

Well, my pile of shame is far too big to list everything, so I'm just going to put down what I think is achievable for 2022. (At least it's all built, if not painted. XD)

Remainder of my Tau Army that I didn't quite finish in 2021:
1 (of 2) XV8 Crisis Commanders.
3 (of 6) XV8 Crisis Battlesuits
10 (of 15) Pathfinders.
3 Stealth Suits
3 (of 6) Knarloc Riders
40 (of 60) Kroot Carnivores.
1 (of 2) Ethereals.
12ish (of 20ish) Drones.
1 (of 2) Cadre Fireblades.
4 (of 12) Kroot Hounds
1 (of 4) Kroot Shapers
Dahyak Grekh

I'm always passively whittling away at my massive Space Marine army and since I've basically stopped buying models for them, I am slowly making headway. I'll usually build a casual 1k point list from my shame pile and just focus on getting that painted up (last year I knocked off a Termi Librarian, Termi Chaplain, and 20 Terminators for a 1st company strike force), so for this year:
1 Phobos Lieutenant
10 Infiltrators
1 (of 2) Land Speeder Storms
3 Scout Bikers
1 Attack Bike
3 Eliminators
20 Scouts (That are just in need of a few finishing touches).

I've taken a similar stance to my Necrons (since the Indomitus box at least) and at least want to finish up some stuff from my pile that I started long ago and put on hold, even if I don't get the whole army done.
5 (of 6) Canoptek Wraiths
6 (of 20) Canoptek Scarab Swarms
12 (of 54) Green Rod Warriors (with 20 "done" that need some tweaks since I've updated the scheme slightly)
Technomancer and 2 Cryptothralls
9 (of 10) Lychguard

Beyond that, I think it's really going to depend of what strikes my fancy to play in 2022 and if I like the scheme for them I've come up with. On one hand, I'd like to get back to work on my Astra Militarum army, I've only got about 1/3rd of the my Infantry heavy force done. On the other, I'm still playing around with my schemes for my Death Guard and Tyranids and can't quite get them to look just right, perhaps I'll take them on if I can solve that. I suppose I'll just have to jump off that bridge when I come to it.

It has begun! I have started painting for 2022.

First thing I finished was a Nativity scene for a gift. Better late than never!

Busted out the new Orange30 Resin Printer and gave it a whirl too. I was pretty nervous about using it, as I am not a technical type and have no real idea what I am doing. However, I found some 1/1200 Greek Triremes from Capt Ahab, and gave those a whirl as my first prints. Eventually, I will need about 50 for games of Poseidon's Warriors to compliment my Victrix Greek land forcesin land/naval campaigns. Here is a start!

I also have my Wargame Atlantic Dark Age Irish and my Tumbling Dice aircraft in route. This could be a great year!

Also have another Commander, a Broadside and a Hammerhead in the post

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.

Also got a special project for my fiance's birthday; since she's getting into D&D I had HeroForge make up a figure of her. Arrived today and looks pretty decent, so got just under 2 weeks to get that painted.

Man I did manage to get a bunch done last year. More then the year before actually but looking back on it the vast majority was terrain. I only made a minor dent in my pile and, overall, added to it.

So going to buckle down and try to get at least one army done or at the very least one project in my backlog done.

So I'm going to either:

1. Complete 1000pts of Stormcast
2. Finish painting my Conan boardgame

Those are the main projects I want done this year. Anything else beyond that will be a bonus.

I've got basically an actual mountain of shame (piles are rookie numbers) and there's no way I'm going to make more than a slight dent in it in a year, so I'll just list some of the highlights of what I've got sitting around:
Warhammer 40k:
Over a dozen Ravenwing bikers, plus Outriders, ATVs, and vehicles. Hoping to get at least a few of these done.
A bunch of Deathwing Terminators. These will probably have priority over the aforementioned Ravenwing due to being more needed for competitive DA lists.
Most of the Indomitus Space Marines. One of my main goals for the year is to finish knocking these out.
Lots of Firstborn Dark Angels. As in Tactical, Assault, and Devastator units, plus their transports. Very low priority, won't happen this year.
Space Wolves. As in, a pretty fair sized army of them, many of which are still on sprues. I'm planning to have a full competitive list of them painted by the end of the year.
Sisters of Battle vehicles. A couple of Rhinos that are basically minimal paint standard for events, plus some Mortifiers and Morvenn Vahl in the same condition, plus a primed Exorcist. Not a huge priority currently but I might at least try to squeeze Vahl in.
Some random Sisters infantry and characters. Low priority since most of it is not very competitive.
The Triumph of Saint Katherine: Still bare plastic and in subassemblies; might get painted this year, might not.
3 Questoris-class Knights, 2 (probably recast) Cerastus Knight-Castigators and 4 Armigers. One of the big guys is actually my Khorne Knight, who is getting a new paint job and removal of all the Chaos-y bits since I no longer play Chaos (don't really want to part with the model). These are not a huge priority, but I might try to sneak one or two of them in, especially if a new Knights codex drops and is fairly strong.
A bunch of Wargames Atlantic Les Grognards infantry. Low priority for now; could get bumped up if Astra Militarum become strong.
2 Leman Russ tanks and a Valkyrie. See above with the Grognards infantry. Might even get some 3D printed reinforcements...
Japanese-themed Drukhari proxy army. 3D printed; planning to print a bunch more for it to make it a full proper army; not sure how quick I can get it painted, my year is already pretty full as it is.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar:
5k points of Stormcast Eternals. I hope to at least get some of these painted this year, but I'm unlikely to do more than that unless I get a bunch of games in and attend an AoS event (as I said, not very likely).
Minas Tirith: Started painting a few infantry last year, didn't finish them. Got plenty of infantry and heroes, plus some cavalry. I'm hoping to get at least some of this painted.
Rohan: I've got the models from the Pelennor Fields starter, but none of them are even primed at this point. I'd like to paint them, but we'll see if I have time.
Lothlorien: I've got Wood Elves, a few Galadhrim, and a handful of heroes (including 3 different Haldir sculpts). I'd love to paint these, but sadly other projects are unlikely to leave me time to do anything with these.
Khazad-dum: I really need to add a few things to this army to get it properly playable, but I do have some stuff that needs paint. Probably won't happen this year.
Mordor: Pelennor Fields stuff, plus a few reinforcements (like Warg riders). Low priority, but might get bumped up if I can get some local interest in the game going.
Easterlings: Some infantry and characters need paint. I'd like to add more infantry and more cavalry to the army, but it's not a priority right now.
Other stuff:
Infinity: I've got the contents of the Red Veil starter set, plus the Beyond Red Veil expansion box. Low priority for painting this year.
Guildball: Kickoff box, plus a starter of the Blacksmiths' Guild team. Low priority for paint despite the fact that I think I'd have fun with the models.
Ankh: Gods of Egypt: Picked up the Kickstarter edition at my FLGS late last year, plus all of the expansions. I hope to at least get started on painting the models this year, but we'll see if I can find time.
Blackstone Fortress: I still have the game kicking around, and most of the models have not yet been painted. I probably won't get around to them this year.
Star Fleet Battles: I have the heavy cruisers from most of the races, and a couple of them are partially painted. I'd like to get those finished and put some paint on more of them this year if possible.
Star Saga: Probably won't get paint this year; might actually get sold if I can find someone who wants it.
Aliens: Another Glorious Day In The Corps: Have the main game plus expansions, started painting some of the heroes last year and haven't touched it since. Might happen this year, might not.
Primal: The Awakening: Kickstarter that will hopefully be fulfilled later this year (already been delayed once). If it arrives at a good time, I hope to at least start painting the models from it this year.

As you can see, there's enough here that even if I didn't buy a single thing for five years, I'd likely still have a pile of shame. Oh well, no use crying about it. I'd best just get painting!

My goal for 2022 is to clear the backlog almost entirely, but there's stuff in there I've let languish for years.

By system, these are my plans:
Malifaux- Paint up Yan Lo (in progress as part of local slow grow), Nightmare Colette and McMourning crews plus the new Master boxes for my crews as they release. Fairly realistic all things considered, they're all only a good couple weeks' effort
Batman- I'm fully painted here (except for 3 Black Friday models still on the way), but I know there will be models that release that I'll buy and so I want to remain fully painted
The Other Side- base my army then it can sit in the knowledge that it's finished
Terrain- I've been gifted most of a Malifaux table now and I've got a friend printing some scatter pieces for use for Batman/Fallout and Bushido/Malifaux so I'm really quite set on this front once I paint up the small bits and pieces of scatter.
Bolt Action- The real shameful one, I haven't touched it other than to add to it in years. It really needs paint and I worked out a speed painting recipe last year, I just have to find the motivation to do it.


I mainly play skirmish games, but am still fairly active with 40k. I play Warcry, Arena Rex, Middle-Earth, Blood Bowl, Batman, Star Wars Legion and The Other Side as well, but my main game is Malifaux.

I bought 35 models last year and painted 84. I'm now down to owning about 19 unbuilt/unpainted models, which I continue to work on.

Realistically, I don't think I'll get as much done this year - it's going to be a busy one in my personal life. So I'm not going to be buying too much.

My resolution last year to only buy stuff new that I was planning to immediately paint held up pretty well and I think was largely responsible for helping shrink the pile of shame and prevent adding too much to it along the way.

We're in the second week of January and I painted this Lamenter plus an inquisitor, and on to a vampire lord on zombie dragon conversion.

Got a good start on the year, cleared out pretty much all of my fantasy chaos bits box to get 5 units of javelin throwing marauders. 36 minis total, and a nice bite into the Norscan army project.

And finished my very elite Night Lords warband, just got to sell an extra hellbrute to totally clear that project:

I have to concur, I dig those Night Lords.

I finished three Venerable Dreadnoughts this morning, and it's probably going to take a while before the next thing gets done because A) the lion's share of my Farrow arrived yesterday and assembling those takes precedent over everything else and B) I think I'm going to do another round or two of proper basing before I put another painting project on the table. I've been slow on that and it wouldn't take that long if I knuckled down on it.
