Horace Embraces his Grey Destiny [BATG 2022]

I like stuff like this, it keeps me motivated to keep ploughing through the unpainted pile!

I only noticed this the other day shortly after acquiring a load of new stuff so maybe they should go in the “new pile”. I hopefully won’t be buying too much until after the summer when I might need to refresh my drawer of unpainted gubbins. In the meantime…

My current shame list is:

1 Shar’tor the Executioner
2 Chaos Dwarf Axemen
10 Bloodletters
6 Bloodcrushers
1 Skarbrand
1 Varghulf
2 Wraiths
2 Necromancers
1 Kairos
1 Lord of Change
1 Goblin Shaman
1 Frostheart Phoenix
1 Exalted Hero on Disc
1 Daemon Prince
1 Exalted Hero on Boobworm
3 Dwarf Thunderers
3 Dwarf Command
1 Dwarf Gyrocopter
1 Dwarf Grudgethrower
20 Savage Orcs
1 Exalted Seeker Chariot
1 Slaanesh Chariot
10 Daemonettes
5 Seekers
1 Burning Chariot
5 Wild Riders
10 Eternal Guard
16 Glade Riders
30 Glade Guard
1 SkullCannon
1 Soul Grinder
4 Drunk Dwarfs
1 Dwarf Adventurer
1 Dwarf Warrior
1 Dragon Ogre Shaggoth
5 Savage Orc Boar Boyz

Great list there! Welcome to the fray, loving the schools of magic floor tiles.

Only thing to note for the purposes of the monthly graphs we are tracking negative as models painted. Positive score is bad as that corresponds to adding to pile of grey.

Managed just the 1 model completely finished this month, but I’ve got quite a few nearly there. Just didn’t get the basing finished on a load of them.

I did get my Soul Grinder finished at least

Well I got 2 things chalked off this month. Quite a lot almost finished again.

I got my Skullcannon/throne finished but need to take a few better pictures

Also finished a bit of Chaos Dwarf esque scenery for a Darklands board a while back but couldn’t post it because I lobbed it into the painting competition.

Some Skaven Gnawholes gone lava pit. What are those wooden posts doing so close to lava you may ask… shh.

I really like those as lava, stunning stuff

Think I’m done for this month in terms of what I’ll finish, I managed 7 Bloodcrushers (well 6 + a Herald). Should hopefully get through some larger numbers “soon”

Nice looking bases! Khorne models really pop against that scheme. Well executed tuft scattering and using different grass types it looks like. Convincing randomized realism is an art by itself

Yes it’s a mix of a few different grass scatters then various tufts. I tend to use a mix of army painter and GW for my tufts.

I got a few things finished already this month!

Herald of Nurgle - quite a cool model, I enjoyed painting it

Plaguebearer unit fillers - no way I’m painting any more Plaguebearers to reach the core requirement at 2500… had to make a few fillers

Kazyk the Befouled - Difficult model to get good photos of! Lots of funny angles and different focal areas. Will see some use as we continue our Tamurkhan campaign!

Hopefully get another batch of stuff finished! (wishful thinking)
