OK, I’m in, I really need the motivation. My work ethic when it comes to getting painting done is frankly appalling. Left to my own devices I’d spend the next 10 years painting and repainting the same miniature without ever considering it finished.

So long as people promise to actually nag me about it. I need some public shaming to get this done, I think.

You are not alone, @Habitual_Lurker. I painted a single gretchin this year. But no more slacking, Anzu. I need to have a fully painted Tomb Kings Army in April for our meetup, so let’s do this.

It’s like a double negative chitz. The second stealing makes it original again.

I might add a “rebased” section to for rebasing my chaos warriors army to squares.

Wouldn’t be a score improver but would be productivity that doesn’t add models to the pile

Hello all,
An idea I submitted on Discord for the BATG:
> What if you create an offshore (we talk about plastic at gold price) miniature painting company, which of you are the sole owner. You transfer it some of your money for a start.
> This company buys your unpainted miniatures, so they are deducted from your grey pile, and you buy them back once they are painted by the owner of the company (you).
> This way, you only own painted miniatures, and you have assets in a company that paints miniatures and happens to have some stock of grey miniatures.
> I’m sure some people around here (such as Chitzkoi) would be competent to do that. Regarding your conscience, well, some people hide their money from taxes and believe it’s OK, are you ready to hide your grey miniatures and truly believe they belong to the company ?

That’s my best chance to end up positive in 2022 (2023 is a better target for me). Another chance for me would be to exploit another loophole: to buy plenty of miniatures “shares” in 2021, then sell enough the following years to compensate for the physical miniatures I acquire in that time.

Great idea! As well as chipping away at the grey, this will remind me to contribute more to this wonderful forum. What a lovely slice of the Internet it is. Merry Christmas all.

This is a work of genius. I don’t buy my miniatures, I lease them from the shell company for a monthly fee that I write off as a business expense.
