Reaver's Battle Against the Grey [BATG 2022]

Two more down and I sure am glad there weren’t four of this mob. Two celestial centipedes (fluorescent flowers or whatever the hell they are) is more than enough.

Incidentally I realized I must have completed more boxes of Bloodborne on accident without taking group shots because I only have 14 models left. Saving the best for last… what nightmares have yet to be uncovered by the moonlight.

Lovely painting, and creepy models…


Grant us eyes! Grant us eyes!

Bloodborne is at 10 remaining. Probably diverting from it a bit as none are fully ready for paint. I’m happy with the ones I chose to save for this final stretch as they’ve been the most entertaining to chuck the brush at.

There are Chaos Dwarfs projects, the arsetisans, and some undead on the bench next.


My 200th painted miniature this year! I had to make it a Chaos Dwarf. Now to start offsetting my purchases to hopefully earn my way to Blackshard


This could be a problem


On today’s episode of Reaver paniks (see previous post) here are 8 chests for Bloodborne.


Another chorf off my desk. Getting closer to having to paint artisans models.

Bloodborne is in single digits now folks. 6 minis left to base and paint.

Simple but I enjoyed these slime scholars. Had to do some fun mixing with olive green and turquoise to get the color I wanted.


Net zero build and paint, but a fun distraction. The majority of it came as part of a “sprue” from OSM. Figured it looked like usable ork terrain with some added gubbinz from da junk ‘eap.


I absolutely love this game and you’ve really brought this set to life, fantastic work!


Welcome to the vaunted halls of CDO fellow hunter!

Look at what I pulled out of my sandy pockets! The first 9 test models for the board game Ankh. A bit preemptive given that Bloodborne is unfinished but the hope is that these will set schemes in motion for some easy win Tomb Kings skeletons I’ve been assembling for nostalgia (and BATG).

I had to test a weird approach on these because the game uses snap rings to assign monsters to player colors. Unfortunately that meant base rims had to stay bare plastic. I modeled and FDM printed some fitted rim covers to assist during airbrushing that served to keep them clean.

Example of the base rim guards and a sneak peak of safe for work Bes.

I haven’t done a headcount for Ankh but my guess is around 75 miniatures that I plan to paint.

Damn your undead heroes look damned straight out of the art of the old world army books, great use of colour on them.

They’re simultaneously grim dark and yet the spot colours really make them pop, lovely stuff!

I love that blue hue to the fabric you’ve done, adds to the whole out-of-the-grave aesthetic.

Claiming my Artisans entry now for tracking purposes. Will update with pics of humie filth when I am allowed.

Best models in the undead haul? I think so. To think I traded a bottle of liquor for the whole lot of 80ish minis. Inconceivable.

Pretty happy with how dead Mrs. Commanderson turned out as well as my custom trees.


I like the riders so much it hurts me that we don’t have them easily available. Little skelechibibabies!


Byrgenwerth… Byrgenwerth… Blasphemous murderers… Blood-crazed fiends… Atonement for the wretches.

Rom the Vacuous Spider hides all manners of secrets. Take the plunge to the moonside lake to confront Rom and her children.

For a while I had a productivity block on lake ripples to match Rom’s boss arena, on the surface of an illusory lake. I’ll probably visit some gloss coats on the water’s surface after varnish. These models are keyed to the bases so I elected to try to accomplish the look without having to hack the model off the base.

Here is the whole Byrgenwerth expansion painted up! I am very pleased with this box and glad I saved these models for the end.

For those of you utterly tired of Bloodborne and these ceaseless ramblings of a blood crazed fiend…

I have…


Bloodborne model remaining. And it’s the best for last…
