As a way of motivating myself and holding myself accountable, I plan on doing a regular post on what I have in my lineup to paint and what I've completed since the previous post, as well as calling myself out on new purchases. I hope anyone reading these posts who feels like participating does so and tracks their own painting in the comments. I'd love to be able to do spotlights on other people's painting as well.
Anyway, to set a baseline, here is a rough list of things I need to assemble and paint sorted somewhat by priority within their category/army:
Broodlord and 22 Genestealers (though I'll probably only do about 5-10 in the first pass)
3 Hive Guard
3rd Edition Hive Tyrant + Wings
Warboss (just needs basing and couple finishing touches)
Dakkajet (partially painted)
Painboy w/ Grot
2 Custom-built battlewagons
3 Killa Kans w/Rokkit Launchas
~30 Warriors (from 3rd ed)
Other Game Systems:
MERCS KemVar group (7 minis)
Warmachine - Protectorate of Menoth Starter set (Warcaster Kreoss + 3 Jacks)
Protectorate of Menoth Warjack Crusader
Protectorate of Menoth Warcaster Amon Ad Raza
4 Crisis Suits
3 Stealth Suits
8 Pathfinders (metal)
Dark Vengeance Dark Angels Captain
Dark Vengeance Dark Angels Librarian
Terrain - Plastic Forests, Ruins, etc.
This list is by no means complete - I've left out all my Eldar, Necrons, and Space Marines, as well as anything from Fantasy, which includes well over 100 Skaven Clanrats and probably about 2,000 points of Dark Elves. In the Misc section, I will track terrain projects as well as any models I buy with the express intent of painting and then reselling on eBay - which is an excuse I use to buy but have rarely completed and am hoping to actually fulfill it some times.
I will leave with a question for you: What do you do to keep yourself motivated?
