I started working on a death guard rhino to night. I think the standard chaos sprue is pretty boring so I decided to raid my bit box for more Nurgle themed details. Mainly I switched the marine in the tower for a pile of nurglings, put some large horns to the front and a claw from drone peeking out of the top hatch. I added some greenstuff details and a bell as some kind of ram. It’s magnetized so it has to dry separately. I’ll see if I can put it all together tomorrow night!
The possessed unit is done! It was fun to paint with quite different colors and textures thanks to the many mutations and randomness of these freakish guys. Here’s some pics:
Just a quick update. I’ve started on my possessed unit. Two of them are almost done and the others have at least one coat of paint on every surface. I hope to finish them this week. That’s it for now!
I played a game of Necromunda last weekend. The new rules are fantastic in my opinion. They fixed everything I wanted to be fixed with the older versions. Especially the order of activation of models. Love it! The new models are quite nice as well so I thought I’ll paint the Escher gang exactly as described. Here’s a prototype for my new gang. I tried something new undercoating with yellow this time. Works quite nice with all the bright colors.
I painted my Nurgle sorcerer to night. The skin color has more of a pink shade than the other marines to make him stand out. Another effect is that he looks like he has a more easily irritated skin. Typically sorcerers. Premiere on Saturday, over and out!
First of all I’ve managed to finish my chaos lord. Not much to say more than he’s ready for battle. Yeehaw! I did some touch ups on the zombie brute. I painted it in a more terrain like quality last time. I just did some highlights and shading. It looks much better now.
I gathered all the models I had available which could suit my new death guard horde. Most of them are necromunda scavvies. This is it:
- Chaos Lord in terminator armour
- 5 Plague Marines
- Helbrute w missile launcher
- Helbrute w some cc option
- Ogryn, possibly a plague surgeon (suggestions welcome)
- 21 cultists including hounds
- 22 poxwalkers
I need to finish some things though. Unify the bases with some rust pigments. Rebasing the hounds. Last of all I hope to complete my sorcerer and maybe the possessed unit before next Saturday. Well, back to work 😉
To muster the forces a little quicker I will convert some of my old fantasy models to 40k. I don’t think there are that many suitable models but first and maybe last is this Slaansesh spawn. It suits the color scheme and it’s a funny twist (of faith) that it’s Slaansesh marked. I’ll figure out some appropriate background story later. Well, here it is with a brand new round base.
