Disaster has struck me.
It’s my birthday and bae has bought me a 15mm tank battalion (+10), a mess of Cold War soviet hardware (+13) and - a night goblin regiment (+16)!!
I’m gonna need a very serious February lads.
With the addition of some texture paint to the bases, I have put 70 models at Tabletop Standard.
These consist of:
50 BFSP Night Goblins - 32 spear and 12 bow - with two command sections.
20 Stormhobgrots - I think I’ll use these as Black Orcs.
They are not well painted but they are definitely off the list. I will go back over them more to make the ash on the bases better and tidy up some drybrush stains.
Black primer was an experiment I doubt I will repeat. It works well enough for modern night goblins which are mostly robe, but Black Templar contrast is easy to use and allows for zenithal highlighting. Ive still got 40 black primed night goblins to go but will give them a rest for now.
I did receive my Russian Alternative K’daii this month. I also got a chance to buy the Hobhound Handler for a decent price and couldn’t let that pass me by.
Bashed out 18 Chaos Dwarf warriors which have been on my painting table since before the Goblinning. 16 warriors and 2 heroes, who promptly got Absolutely Nothing Useful Done against Jac in my first game since 2002!
I scored a classic Doom Diver this month, in a lot of junk I promptly sold on. Big win for me to only take a +1. I’ve uninstalled eBay, that’s how serious this is.
A storm is coming. Instead of finishing individual regiments, I have been stage-painting about 200 greenskins. When the payoff comes, it will change the game.
Took a few months off there to earn my paycheck.
Started squats; got some old vintage bikers for them, along with some classic (and very small) elites.
Smashed out about 200 new greenskins. Forest Goblins, Night Goblins, Squigs and Orcs. Huge amount of Chronopia in there. Very addictive range to paint, takes contrast very well. Details in the bottom post.
Additions to the pile: +75
Painted models: -299
Total count: -224
