YouTuber Dana Howl went through her pile of unpainted miniatures recently, and the final figure was high indeed.
As my own pile has reduced over the past few years form over 1,000 to under 200, I can sympathise with this situation. Dana’s collection is impressive, but I have found there are three things you need to do in order to seriously tackle the pile once it gets to four figures.
I have done all of these over the past few years, and it was the combination of the first two that helped me. In 2018 I painted 177 models and bought 176. In 2019, I painted 270 models and bought 29, and have continued in the same vein since.
I had to let a few limited editions pass me by, including the same Sister of Battle limited release Dana bought, Blood Bowl second season, and a few Kickstarters. I have also gotten rid of round 200 of my models, realising that I would never paint them mainly because I was no longer interested in doing so.
The tray method has worked for me, and I will be interested in seeing what system Dana comes up with.
