:heavy_minus_sign: Models Painted: 0

Total: 57

Project Overview (more details added as the projects progress)


  • Tomb Kings
  • Empire (Ostland) and Kislev
  • Hobgoblin conversion project

  • Seleucids
  • Warlord Era (China)

Can’t wait to see those 2nd ed dudes!


Me too. :tongue: I have been slowly buying up Mordians from ebay over the past 2 years. They are not particularly sought-after but nobody over here seems to have more than a couple of them / wants to part from them. Funnily enough, the same is true for Praetorians – they rarely reach the prices seen over at your side of the channel. As for the orks, I only have the ones from the starter box plus a metal dreadnought. I would love to add some metal minis but so far my will was stronger (Knightmare miniatures :eyes:). Perhaps less so once I have ruined my BATG score.


I am always here to help if you need it…

But BATG is about painting! Our collections deserve the love! I will have some 90s stuff to show in springtime, if I can get through my current targets. Multiple types of stormtroopers, some vintage commissars, etc


Well… shit.

Hmm, to be fair Anzu, those are painted, right? Or do you plan to strip them and repaint?

I’ve finished three gretchin, just before the February deadline. They were basecoated last year – so I will not count them towards my score.

In other news, I’ve added 20 more Mordian recruits to the pile, so in total we’re at +26.

@chitzkoi Technically you are right but they are pretty desolate as they are – that paintjob does not do the proud men of Praetoria justice, so I count them as unpainted.


Those Gretchin look ace! lovely shading/highlighting, weathering and freehand pattern painting.

However, how about drilling out the barrels on every model with a gun in your collection? Just a thought. :slight_smile:

Keep it up!

@Admiral Thanks :slight_smile: I rather enjoy painting these old plastic models – I think they hold up quite well for their age. I actually did drill the barrels in the front but was too lazy to drill out the muzzle brakes. I may touch them up at a later point.


I bought some Warlord era Chinese from Copplestone Castings’ Back of Beyond range (+ 23). Not looking too good for my BATG score… I spend virtually all my hobby time right now with sculpting.



I guess that’s +8 which means that I have officially surpassed @tjub :spoon:

I will also add my own casts once I have decided what lands on the reject pile.


So these are 20s era? You have great taste

@chitzkoi 100% correct. I am happy and a bit surprised that there are miniatures for such niche settings + Marc Copplestone appears to be a former Foundry (GW?) employee. The sculpts are rather simplistic compared to Citadel, so painting them should be quick.

@Oxymandias Thanks. They took way longer then they should have… compared to your recent contrast and streaking grime gobbos. :wink:
