Nurgle Heldrake

It's pretty much close to being done, other than the base and a few minor highlights. I hope she'll be vomiting on Loyalists soon!

Traitor Legions

Well! Well, well, well ,well! Well, well, well, well!

This is awesome news! FINALLY...real, actual, dedicated Traitor Legion rules. Been a long wait, especially after Chaos got neutered so badly after the 3.5 codex.

Here's hoping more new models come down with the release. Seeing what they did with the Thousand Sons, I have high hopes for new Plague Marines. Super stoked for this!

Nurgly dudes

Just a couple of WIPs of characters that needed a little dash of editing tonight. We have a Nurgle Sorcerer and Champion I switched out heads on. Painting these will be a blast!

Time to get back to work

Ahhhh, fall is here. The leaves change, Walking Dead is back on ...and it's that season, for me at least, to get back to work and rededicate myself to hobby stuff. Those cool temps just put my ass right back in the seat. So first up, I need to work on the few Nurgly projects I have going on that need finishing. I'm anticipating big things for them coming next year, and I gots to be ready.

First thing I've been working on is the Heldrake I started a while back. This is definitely a WIP; only finished the first wash over the main colors so far. I'll add some rust to it and some more washes, maybe some greens and purples. This one is definitely growing on me now that it's getting some paint on it, kinda diggin' it more now. It's just really absurd looking, and I like that.

Once this one is done I'll move onto some Cultists. I primed some this past weekend and want to get on them next as they look really fun to paint. I'm thinking of doing them mainly yellow, just to break up the main green theme of the army.

And speaking of Nurgle, I hope Plague Zombies make it into the new lists for them. Some new undead models would be killer for conversions. Nurgle knows I love my walkers, especially playing one!

Chaos Knight plans

The Imperial Knights Renegade box showed up on my doorstep the other day, and it made me all...

Super excited about converting both a Nurgle one for myself, and a Khornate version for my girl. I'm already brainstorming about how to do both. I'll raid the Lord of Skulls kit for the Khorny one. That should be fairly easy; between the big f'ing axe and the head piece, it'll be a good start.

The Nurgle one will probably entail a wild mix of kits. From just browsing through my bitz, I can see adding Maulerfiend, Soul Grinder, Defiler, Glottkin, and various spikes, skulls, bodies, banners, and horns on her. My dremel is drooling at the chance to get a hold of that plastic.

Kinda digging this head for it too.

Then there's the load out on them. Of course, make the Khorne one a h2h monster with a reaper chainsword and thunderstrike gauntlet. Not much in the way of shooting, but that's for pussies anyway, right? Nurgle one I'd love to make a gun platform out of; the thought of two rapid fire battle cannons blasting away is just sick. Expensive, but sick.

Daemon Prince of Nurgle WIP

Had this lovely fellow sitting around for a while. Initially, folks weren't too keen on the head I used for him, but I kinda like him more now that it's painted up. The head melds better now I think, Still a little ways to go on him, but I like how grotesque he's turning out.  His pose kinda sprang out a bit more too, like he's plodding along stalking some prey.

Started with a white basecoat, followed by Ogryn Camo base for the body, Balor Brown for the wing membrane, and a lot of Typhus Corruption and Ryza Rust for his axes.

After all the base colors were on it was a steady wash of Sewer Water and Baby Poop. Yes, you read that right. I also played around with Nurgle's Rot too, mostly on his gut and wounds. I like the effect it made and will be using it to make some nasty little toxic pools on some terrain and bases in the future.

Downed Airship WIP

These were fun to paint up! My girl suggested blue for the airship color, and I'm glad she did, cause it'll make some of this dreary-ass terrain pop on my table.

That's it for stage 1 of the terrain project. Still have to go back in and get the rubble locked down, add some signs, mud, and blood, and maybe match the black to the more dark purple of my Frontline Gaming mat. Have I mentioned how awesome they are?

No more playing in Plastic City for us!
