I buy no new models until I fully painted the ones I already have!

Yes, we all know this sentence and we all said it at least once in our wargaming career but who really stuck to it? Well I do at least at the moment. I am sitting in front of the death guard part of two Dark Millenium starter boxes, a Forge World Leviathan Dreadnought, a Kabuki Studios Alpharius/Omegon surrogate, a pack of Seekers of Slaanesh, forty Chaos Cultists and a pack of Possessed. This is definitely a lot to paint (even if many of you have a lot more to paint at home) and I feel a bit overwhelmed by it. The worst part, however, is not what I have to paint right now but what I can’t paint because of it. There is this Eisenhorn model coming out, Necromunda is releasing a new Gang (and I didn’t even get the starter box) and of course, Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire came out a while ago. There are so many things I want to paint right now but I can’t because of the things I have at home already.

The lesson learned for me out of this is that I will never ever buy these many miniatures again in one run! And now I will go back to my painting table and paint what I have so I can hopefully start on new projects soon and get rid of this overwhelming feeling.

  1. The notion is a good one. My difficulty is that I have a backlog that goes back decades 😦

    Pretty sure I have some of the old single part plastic plague marines that came in a vox of five for a fiver, the similarly priced genestealers that came in blue plastic, some bone-plastic skeletons and so on. Loads of greenskins, lots of Skaven, plenty of Chaos…

    I think I need to turf or sell some stuff in addition to painting :/

    1. Thank you for your nice words. I think the first step to do this is to have a clear plan what you paint when. I use an app called „Wunderlist „ for this
