I think my back log is stretching back about ten years.

In terms of painting hobbits, paint the coat one colour, then the next hobbit trousers in that colour and so on. Individual looking hobbits, quickly. Thats how I did about 40 Orcs in a day.

I'm just lazy and spend a lot of time on one model. I am working on a standard bearer for my Chaos Warrior unit. I've spent about two-three hours over two or three days and thats beside the fact i've had the model for four years.

I don't even dare count my backlog for all my systems, but for LotR it's not tooo bad. This is what I can remember, but I've probably missed some off:

24 Moria Goblins
~25 High Elves
16 Rangers of Arnor
3 Rangers of the North
~20 Haradrim Warriors
Plus lots of little bits like random Heroes (Legolas and Gimli from Breaking of the Fellowship, Gamling, etc.)

To be added soon (for GT armies):

Glorfindel
Dragon
~20 Morannon Orcs
~20 Mordor Orcs

Plus (also for GT) the construction of a 2' square display board to show the Fall of Nargothrond.

Plus (for September) my High Elves (fantasy) and Eldar up to 1000pts.

However, I am blessed with that wonderful thing called The End Of Exams, meaning I have 3 months of earning money and painting! :P

So big I can't bring myself to try and count it. Several years worth of work there but every painted model is a step in the right direction.

Tis true every painted model takes you one step forward, however after each painted model, I have a tendency to buy five or six new ones ?

You don't want to know how nig my backlog is :). But seriously what I do now is get a single coat of paint on an entire army and then I can at least use it. Then I go back and add more detail.
