Roll For Wounds paints his Goons: BATG 2022 (More Dogs, More Dregs)

Thanks! That’s the kind of miniature that “paints itself”. Wonderful model.


Pretty feels like a weird compliment but it is fitting! Lovley models mate!


May 2022

I was seduced by a local gaming convention - got myself some wolf riders and a human command set. In spite of this May was a good month for BATG. Lots of Hobgoblins. Lots and lots of Hobgoblins. The spares from Dominion and aforementioned wolf riders mean they’ll be many more.

May was also the month that my Raven Twin Kickstarter finally arrived! This was pledged in…December 2020? So while they’ve certainly swollen my collection, I am not counting them towards BATG since I did not commit the sin of purchasing this year. Painted a couple of test models this month and looking forward to building a grand shield wall from spear-wielding Immortals.

Setback! I painted a catapult and two crew, Dr Robotnik, and an as-yet-unveiled Golden Hat. However I succumbed to temptation and got myself 10 Leopard Men + 2 elf dragon riders. The latter are proxies for Asarnil, before you accuse me of collecting High Elves.

And so double digits remain a hair’s breadth away. I reach the summer solstice on -89

Oh no! This isn’t the direction we should be going! +1 for July due to Dogs of War proxies (The Assault Group, excellent minis).

Some nice painting though, plus a solid start to my mercenaries. Voland’s Venators have enjoyed two victories on the tabletop so far. Good lads.

My fruits ripened in August. I also painted lots.

Summer has me deep in Dogs of War. With but a handful to go, I look forward to revisiting my Chorfs and Hobgoblins to support the @PerpetualCampaign war effort. Better get priming before the alleged rainfall…

Update: Voland’s Venators have now won three victories. Those reprobates.

I know I’m going back a bit here but I’ve been away :grin:

Have to say the glows around the eyes on this Warmachine are perfect

Amazing paintjobs across the board

Moving house got the better of me, so Autumn has been a bit of a blur. I smashed through the remaining Dogs of War, then made up for it by buying 24 Halberdiers to guard my Paymaster. My Paymaster who is Blackadder. Go figure.

Just one month to go, and I’m partially through 20 or so of my remaining Chaos Dwarf warriors. The gold trims are done, but there’s plenty purple to go. And of course, Golden Hat. There’s light! At the end of the tunnel! Liiiiiiight!

Defeated at the final straight! Cocksure with my triple digit negatives, I succumbed to a bargain beginner box on eBay. While my pockets bulge with monopose Lizards, my shame has never been greater. 107 models added in December alone, and while I finished 24 Chaos Dwarf infantry, the damage was done. I finish 2022 having painted fourty one more miniatures than I bought. Good enough - bring on '23!
