Reaver's Battle Against the Grey [BATG 2022]

“If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it” - Dracula von Carstein, 1958


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.

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…


Wow, I’m.not sure what I’m more impressed with coming back to this thread all the time, the unique modelling and GS work that excels, the veriation of minis from multiple games and companies, the high standard of painting or the factory like quantity that they get put out at.

All more than incredible :hatoff:


Oh boy, these are horrible in the best sense of the word!


@KhamdrimSkyMaster gifted me this lovely tactical nuke when I was in pissing distance of -200.

Time to buckle down and paint some infantry. Elden Ring looms large on the horizon. The credit card charge date could be the nail in BATG2022 :coffin:….

Anyway here is the haul. LKM Immortals, well worth taking a BATG hit.

Night Lords kill team? Idk but they’re pretty cool.


I’m just glad they all got there in one piece, hahaha

But I also couldn’t let you achieve your goal of -200, muahahahaha

25 is a wee drop in the ocean compared to the day the entirety of the lands between come knocking on my wallet’s door.


Headache because of the BATG balance, or do the immortals provide more levels of headache? ^^

None of any of the rest will matter if Elden Ring the board game hits my credit card this year. Not… one… bit…

Btw, since you have them in front of you, may I misuse your thread and ask, if the musician is actually a one-part model as it seems on the pic?


Fair play. No misuse! Yes indeed the musician is one piece.

A shame!
I could see this horn on a ranged unit.
But I see no way how one could change this immortal to not look like one, with all of his characteristic attributes like the shoulder pads, skirt and shoes being part of the model.

Doable if you had to but far more pain than it’s worth. I’d sooner DIY a horn that looks like this than try to carve this guy up.

It’d be easier to hack a few bits off digitally before printing.


I don’t really know what happened with this scheme. Bit of zodd pastel, Reaver minimal tones ‘cept pink not grey, and then some old school brightness. Either way I’ll take the long fought -1.

I based the bulk of the beast on my Lamassu scheme. The banner is freehand based on some of the original oldhammer banners that were miraculously still in the packaging. 100% couldn’t resist.

The undead haul that set me back mightily in the closing months of last year’s BATG has become the bounty of this year’s BATG feast. If you’d like to read more about the undead haul I’m going to post pics in the original thread of the whole lot together.

Here’s a sneak peak. I’m quite happy with the banner as a focal point for the army.


Looks great. I haven’t seen a non flesh coloured dieter before. He looks like a vampire to me now (probably intended-vampire counts army)

Getting brave on your colours now! Red and pink is not for the feint hearted! You pulled it off though :cherry_blossom::octopus:

Another -16. Closing in on the end of the year fellow painters!
