Chaos Lord of Nurgle

It was a nasty day today and I was stuck inside organizing some bitz. I found a couple of pieces I had bought in the past I had forgot about and set about putting together a quick Nurgle Lord with them.

I think this is a record for how many different kits I could bash. His head is from the Chaos Warshrine kit, the torso from the Chaos vehicle accessories, arms from the Raptor set, legs are a Beastmen Gor, and the backpack and shoulder plates are from the Chaos Marine kit. He even has a small head trophy from the Plaugebearer kit, some old GW barb wire, and a small pouch from a secondary market kit which name escapes me. That's a lot of parts!

I added a little textured paint to the armor and some liquid Green Stuff here and there to gunk him up.

My favorite bit is definitely the head, just fits really well for a Plague Lord, horn and all.

Nurgle Soul Grinder 2 WIP

Almost done with the second Nurgle Grinder. More of the same with this one paint wise as the GW technical paints continue to be a blast to work with. I got a little more gory with this one!

WIP Blood Throne of Khorne

I don't know when I'll field her, but I really wanted to build one of these. Rules wise it's ok, nothing real special, but it does make for a fun conversion piece.

Had to go with some Juggernaut steeds...this blog is named from them after all. The chariot body is from the old metal Chaos Warrior chariot (screw you Finecast!). I added a few skulls here and there and will no doubt put a few more up; those and chains are a great way to hide gaps in the model. I added a banner to the front of the chariot to count as the Totem that let's you pass on the Herald's Locus to others nearby.

If you play Khorne you gotta play the target saturation game, and this beauty will need to be taken care of stat by your opponent cause it hits pretty hard. A Herald will wreck some stuff if you let him get into h2h.

Saw an Ork rumor the other day that cyboars may make it back into the next codex. I would love to see this; I've always loved the concept and think that some really kick ass models could be made for them. The old ones looked like juggernauts on meth.

I made a couple of my own a while back, nothing too crazy, just a tailpipe (literally) and a robot eye on one. I was going to use them as counts as bikers but never got around to finishing them.

I am REALLY looking forward to the new codex and all the craziness that will go along with it like new units, updated models, Escalation, etc. 2014 gonna be a good year!

Future Traitor Guard

Time for something a little different than Daemons and Chaos Marines.

I put a hold on building any Imperial Guard allies for both those forces until the new book comes out; who knows how they'll change game wise and the codex is not that far off if you believe what you read online. Thought I'd piece together a squad leader for my future Traitor Guard force, the Neiglen 116th "Sewer Chewers". I love the idea of a Traitor Guard army worshipping daemons or summoning them forth as allies for battle. I imagine these guys can get pretty desperate and have no qualms about unleashing the full power of Nurgle on anyone who opposes them.

The body is from Forgeworld and the bare arm from the Catachan kit. Hard to see but he has a map case on him from a secondary company I picked up on Ebay. The robotic arm is from the current Cadian kit, lots of excellent conversion pieces on there.

I have some tanks, a ton of foot troopers and a good amount of heavy weapons ready to go for this force, just patiently waiting...
