In the same concept as the thread in the BA section, to take stock of what we have and what we have to do, what's in your mountain of grey sprues that needs making and painting for the Hive Mind?

I suppose mine is a black pile of shame, as I got as far as undercoating it, but they've been sat like that in a box since Deathstorm came out. Which was what, six years ago? Ugh. Anyway, it seems pretty modest by comparison, but posting it here might jog me to actually do something about it
3 Tyranid Warriors
Something must be wrong if only having a few models left is embarrassing Jud... or maybe the rest of us should be promoting this mindset? As a rough number of what I have:
** metals, one from each previous age
*** I think, these are old metals
There's some spore mines too and some other bits so I still need to collate exact numbers and models, as noted there is a little bit of research still needed There's some old school Space Hulk genestealers too. Do I get a technical exemption because a fair few aren't grey, or that I didn't build the pile? The models should give an indicator as to the age of the collection, so there has been a fair few new models since but I can expand into these when I earn them by painting models
As if this wasn't all lucky enough, I always wanted to have plenty of gribbles on the table with Warrior support and I am not short of either
I've developing my scheme now, but I'm not too worried. I reckon I can assembly line them ok over time and it's not like I'll need to paint every one... right?
Corruption is our armor. Infection is our weapon. Immortality is our reward.

I’ve been on a painting frenzy over the past few months, so I only have a few models left:
Hive Tyrant with wings
I’ll also get an Exocrine when they come back in stock
I forgot to count my Space Hulk box... oh well, not like a few more stealers make a big difference to the mountain I should be getting the hobby supplies I need to finish my scheme tomorrow so then I can start reducing the pile

Friday morning I had no Pile of Shame for 'Nids. Friday evening I'd traded the Indomitus Necrons for the following:
8 Spore Mines
with another 6 Hormagaunts, another Pyrovore, three Raveners, and a Hive Tyrant set aside as payment for the next few commission painting jobs.
And picked up a box each of new Termagaunts and Hormagaunts to flesh things out a bit. No one can accuse me of doing things by halves.
That's a great haul and worthy of the swarm - a good trade also!
I managed to finish my broodlord - crossed off the list.
That's the hobby way of doing things: finally clear all your models then immediately add a new mountain of grey
Bad news in that my list is wrong (again): I only have one Biovore and I don't know what the other model with it was. I'll need to find out, might be an old Hive Guard type thing maybe? The other is I missed the Battle for Macragge sprues, which is 10 more Termagaunts and 6 stealers. The good news is that I've done the spore mines from these sprues and have been working diligently on painting models so for once the pile of shame is moving quickly in the right direction
Once I sort the stoney bits I want for my bases I'll be able to complete more too - I'll have eight Warriors done then Along with the gaunts building their numbers up I'm getting a solid core of Troops which is essential for any army all the more so nids.
The unfortunate bit here is that this, along with proceeding well overall, means I start getting increasingly drawn to looking at other units and models I don't have... it gets more dangerous each batch of nids I complete and the justifications build up. "I don't have any of the newer or larger kits", "I will need them to provide holes in my list", "I think they're cool and want to build and paint them"... I will try and resist

I'm not sure if Pyrovores existed back when this collection was made, but I didn't check the model in detail. I will need to do so as the mystery needs solving
