Proud Brian moment. I passed the test by passing, and boy was it a test.
Go buy a load of models to celebrate your self control
I closed the Elden kickstarter tab… but haven’t closed the ogres kickstarter tab haha. And one of the stretch goals has a pirate hat, so I’m screwed. There’s also a Westfalia kickstarter running with some dead fishy pirates.
Ding Dong, more Ankh minis are at the door. I submit this offering to CDOs vaunted halls of wizened dong sages.
Many realistic bull (centaur) anatomy discord chats, links to fantasy pleasure barge sculpts, member visits to phallological museums, and the bountiful banter on the subject of historical phallic art… lead us to Bes, the first meme.
(Ctrl-f “dong” on the discord server for a good time)
I found the original Ankh sculpt to be quite lacking, so I had to overcompensate, wholly driven by historical source material. Once I get to Tawaret you’ll see why this board game needed more equal representation among the deities of fertility.
Here are the not safe for WIPs. Mostly a quick repose and sculpting of musculature although I did add a hat and the dong rider seen in some classical Bes art.
not safe for WIPs!!
Simply the Bes!
Here I humbly submit my small petition to get @MichaelX to paint his own Tomb King army in 2023.
Couldn’t resist spending some quality time on these nostalgia kings, my first warhammer fantasy army. Credit to BATG for the impetus to dig into my rainy day box of things I panic bought, the day the toooomb kings died🎶
I started singin, bye-bye these here Khemrian guys
Thank you for drawing my attention to the fellow along for the ride on ol’ Bes, I’d never noticed that before
Drove my Chevy down to khemri but the khemri was dry
Them dead ol’ boys were screamin, the ennnnd is nigh,
singin this’ll be the day that I die… again…
These are absolutely stunning!
Taking credit for my Golden Hat doot brigade. Will update with pics when allowed, but they were finished this year and dam do I need the buffer. A few of the models were completely new creations so they will have to be net zeros. More updates to come.
This marks the cresting of 300 minis painted for the year! Not something I’d ever thought I’d reach… but as you’ll see purchases still loom large…
EDIT: link to images
Last changes for the year! A few lovely Mom minis and spellcrow dwarfs that will be put to excellent use. I think the two fishy dwarfs will likely be “bits” on a larger project but I’ll count them all as +1 for max pain in the off chance plans divert.
Also was able to cash in before EoY on the Red Bard Ogres Kickstarter pledge manager.
12x Ogres including freebies
1x asscannon with lots of fun crew
1x Dwarf cart and a running dwarf for bits fodder
Total of 18 added!
(This was more than expected due to VAT subtotal shenangling forcing me to up the purchases for free shipping)
Woah, this was a close one… what a glorious gift. And a counts as +2
Dumb luck and efficient planning for BATG 2023
I’m now at -200…
Could nearly count as 4 haha…
Guessing you are basing the swivel gun on a 40mm base
I have to be consistent with my OSM swivel gun kitbash on 40mm base
Haha, love it!
