While GW loves that I buys tons of models that I may never get to finish I do not. While an obvious solution is to just stop buying new models I do not think I can go cold turkey entirely. I have come up with (stole!*) a system that will both encourage me to paint what I have while still allowing me to feed my plastic and resin addition in moderation.
Basically, for every model I paint I will award myself points. For each point I earn, I put $1 into my model fund. Here is the breakdown for how I will reward myself based on model base size:
-25mm: 1 Point
-40mm: 2 Points
-60mm: 4 Points
-75mm: 8 Points
-Monsters and Monstrous Creatures: 10 Points
-Small Vehicles: 10 Points
-Large Vehicles: 20 Points
-Super Heavy Vehicles: 40 Points
Now, I want have some bonuses also to motivate me to do certain things:
-Character: 4 Points
-Completed Unit: 4 Points
-Rebasing an Model: 0.5 Points
To keep myself honest I will post update to my points here.
