Decay is coming

So my Ogres are getting painted, and it looks like I should get finished with them around the time of the release of the new Chaos Codex. I have always dug the forces of Chaos, Khorne and Nurgle being my favorites. I took a Nurgle CSM army to my first GT, and then a Nurgle Lost and the Damned force (man, I miss that list!) to my last one. It is time to re-visit my ol' friend Papa Nurgle once again!

My plan is to assemble a more Lost and the Damned looking army than a traditional Marine one. If what we're hearing about possible Cult Troops is true, I'll get to convert up some zombies, which for a horror fan like myself, is a very fun prospect! I'm looking at some other companies undead models now for ideas as the old GW zombies are getting a little long in the tooth for me. I was really disappointed when they didn't get an updated model when the VC got released a few months back. The scale of them is just so off from the smaller stuff that's out now. I do have plenty of ghoul bitz and plan on using those to make some nasty conversions.

I've been planning this for a while, and have been buying bitz and Chaos stuff cheap the last year or so. The last codex was not that to nice to CSM players, and people dumped a lot of their stuff after its release. I knew eventually they'd get a better deal, so I'm glad I hung on to a few good bitz and models from the last go-round. I have a certain Chaos Sorcerer who is about to make his triumphant return...

In honor of this new army, here's some appropriate metal to get me in the mood!

Ogre WIP's

I'm really enjoying experimenting with the new GW paint line. Sticking to the basics right now, and so far, very easy to use.

Khornate Marines

A few shots of some Worldeaters I've dusted off for the new Codex. I used Beastmen legs with Bezerker bodies, pretty easy conversion and it made them look more bestial.

I can hardly contain myself between the new Edition being released and new Chaos stuff!

WIP Firebelly. Used him in a game recently, they're great...especially the breath weapon vs. T3 elves.
