About the Project

So I’ve reached peak pile of shame! I think Ive devised a realistic plan to try to reduce it. No actual picture as I don’t have a lens wide enough.

This Project is Completed

The Plan!

I think Ive devised a realistic plan to try to reduce it. No actual picture as I don’t have a lens wide enough.

I know I wont be able to just not buy anything so a blanket no buy policy won’t work.

I know that painting to a deadline or target also helps (getting minis ready for D&D and da red gobo for Christmas etc)

So I’m going to put myself to the following rule;

I can only buy a new mini if I’ve earned it by tackling the pile of shame, Using the below scoring system.

The Plan!

Sister Doralys has taken armour of faith a little too literally or she’s a bit tapped :).

Either way the mini is stunning and usable in a lot of games and settings. From Raging Heroes

I think this wolsung car works great for a high end civilian 40k car, but I think most punk sub genres can work if dropped straight into #40k
