Flagellation 4 Silver Sins (BATG2022)

Purchased: 62
Painted: 17
In-Progress: 8
Sold: 14
Total: 31

When I first rejoined the minis scene I prided myself on keeping my pile of shame quite small. But then came Chaos Dwarfs. And then came 2020. And now I have amassed a backlog that is promising to explode if I keep piling on projects at the past year’s pace. So here I come for all that paintless pewter!

This will likely mostly mirror my (soon to come) Chaos Dwarf proper blog but will also serve to capture my Saga and Stargrave projects. Looking forward to the challenge!

Starting the year off with some purchases because I am an incorrigible collector. 2 marauder orcs to finish off my slave unit, a skeleton to go towards an undead Saga warband, and a Dark Elf because I’m a sucker.

That said I am currently layering/highlighting a unit of archers for my lords of the wild Saga warband and they should be finished soon!


First completed entry!

I had just finished base coating my Lords of the Wild list for Saga last year and am going through and doing layers and highlights at the beginning of this year because I’m forcing myself to finish (painting) projects before starting new ones. Fully painted armies from now on! But because of that though I’m counting all my LotW at half points. So here’s a -5 to the score!


Less painting! More buying! Some… selling?

End of January warp up is less hopeful than it started. I’ve finished the greys on my unit of Lords of the Wild hearthguard but wasn’t able to finish them up by the end of the month.

On the other end I went hard on the purchases at the end of the month. I’ve decided on and started buying 3rd edition Dark Elves for my Great Kingdoms Saga list, wrapped up the buying for my Horde list, and picked up a couple third party CD sculpts. The one ray of hope here is that there is only one faction from Age of Magic I don’t have yet, so there’s only so much more I can buy… right? :laughing:

And finally I was able to trade and sell the extra chaos dwarfs and hobgoblins I had gotten from bulk buys while collecting my big hats. Between buys, sells, and trades this month I came out with a shameful net of 19. I’m going to have to figure out how to paint faster if I’m going to come out ahead this year!


Mid-month-ish hcheck-in! What have I managed to accomplish?

In negative news I completed all of my hearthguard, warlord, and sorcerer for my LotW Saga warband. Similar to the previous unit I will be counting them at half due to starting them last year for a total of -6 points. Pics to follow…

In positive news I was able to find 5(!) Dark Elf Cavalry (though only 2 Doomsteeds), 2 mounted Melniboneans, my first Azireth Darkforce sculpt (v4), and 7 other elfin sculpts for my Great Kingdoms warband. I also backed a kickstarter for a lovely pair of models based on Ian Miller artwork bringing my total new models to +17.

Net so far this month: +11

If I keep my nose to the grindstone this month I should be able to knock out my unit of levies. Here’s hoping!


12 levies down! That’s another -6. 7 more purchased though… So close to a negative score this month. I was making really solid progress in the beginning of the month but have been on a nice long vacation since.

With these levies down I am only 8 warriors, one monster, and one character away from starting my Chaos Dwarfs! I’m really getting excited for them. My most recent accounting puts me ~100 pts shy of a full 2k collected!
