Zid's Chaos Corner- Update 2/4 - I made a youtube channel(Pg. 4) @ 2017/11/26 03:10:23


Post by: Zid


Hello all,

So after being out of the game since beginning of 6th, I have jumped back into the hobby. Having owned and played essentially every faction (aside from Eldar and Sisters) back in 5th, I came back to the army I enjoyed the most; Chaos.

This time I decided I'd start a P&M blog here so others can share ideas while I post progress. I'll be doing a lot of converting with these armies in the future once I get some green stuff and more bitz as currently all I have is leftovers from a box of Plaguemarines... lol.

First up, a full starter set, a box of plague marines, and the small "half" starter set; this totals 2 drones, a plaguecaster, blightbringer, one lord of contagion (second will be a termi sorcerer eventually), 30 poxwalkers, and 20 plaguemarines. I converted one blightlauncher, so I have 3 plasma, 1 melta, and 2 blightlaunchers. I also made two powerfist champions and one flail user.

Glad to see you are back in the hobby. Nurgle welcomes all to his fold.

Thanks! I forgot how much fun the building and modeling portion was I do like the easy build models from the starter, except that they gave them crappy options on their loadouts (no double knives or axes). I also was sad to see the PM kit only has 1 of each special weapon in the kit, and only a single bubonic axe. However, smashing the kit with the easy build models enabled me to make a good range of builds to set up my PM squads. Pretty happy so far! We'll see what X-mas brings to the fold of nurgle

Update #1, Part 1:

Worked on this gem for 3 days now, love how he turned out. Nurgle terminator sorcerer w/ Force Staff and Comb-Bolter. Name undecided. I did a lot of modifying, cutting, and a bit of GS work (I'm still new to it).

Update #1, Post 2:

I'm still waiting on bases to finish them, but I finished building my Blightlord Terminators; I LOVE these models. Didn't really do much GS work on them, however, I did magnetize 3 to give me arm options. I messed up and one term was magnetized the wrong way, so one term has two options, while the other two share the other four arm options. Oh well. Also included a pic of how I "converted" my own combi-plasmas using the plasma pistols from the Khorne Berzerkers kit. They look ok to me, nothing spectacular.

Update #1, post 3:

Last post, started work on converting a Typhus from my second LoC. I'm extremely excited with my GS work so far, the mushrooms were a beast to form! You can tell I worked on him after the Sorcerer from earlier pictures.

I did make a unit of Berzerkers with a Lord, which I'll share next update. However, I need to convert these cultists I bought in bulk to have autoguns (or something I can say is "counts as").... unless CCW/Pistol wouldn't be a bad option?

Update #2 Post 1: Converted cultists! Because I traded for 40, and 19 came without autoguns, I utilized bolters to convert 8, IG guns to convert another 8, did some GS modeling for the Death Guard champ (I call him megaman), and modified a few with double pistols to be "counts as" autoguns.

Update #3, Post 2: Typhus is complete! I think he turned out really well, sorry for the poor photos. This is also my Chaos Lord of Khorne, he uses a converted Blight Axe as his power axe (I think it looks like a huge butchers cleaver). Typhus is converted from a LoC w/ bits from a second LoC and PM kit, Chaos Lord is a Khorne Berzerker with PM bits.

Update #3, Post 3: Plagueburst Crawlers!!!

Both of these I converted heavily, the large smooth (and small smooth) orbs on the conversions will be eyeballs eventually once painted. They are both grotesque, super nurgly, and I love it! Both have magnetized sponsons for weapon changes, I did not magnetize the middle gun because I don't think that option will ever be changed... lol

Please note, this is the first time I've utilized GS so much on models, so some of the work is rudimentary and not that impressive But I like it!

Update #3, Post 4: Final post! This is my Terminator Sorcerer Lord which will lead my Alpha Legion detachment. Basicly parts from the kit. Also, pics of all previous models (minus these two) as a group.

I really like how Typhus and the Khorne Lord have turned out, some nice attention to detail on both.

Also, I'm always envious of people who have a natural aptitude for GS work. I try, but can never get the detail in it I want. Smooth cables is about all I can muster! I think your 'mouth barrel' crawler is looking especially good.

Are you going for classic Nurgle green or something else for the paint scheme?

Hey there just noticed I had a comment! Sorry for the long response time I'm actually thinking of going with some sort of grey-color scheme; the theme of the army is moving more toward flies, maggots, and creepy bugs. Things dealing with death. I was thinking Bone White originally, but now I'm unsure!

Hello all,

Sorry for the long break in updates! Lots of new models, lots of work! Still haven't started any painting yet though, however I did pick up some paints finally. Still trying to finalize a paint scheme for the actual armor and things, though.

That said, heres my Lord of Flies, a Demon Prince w/ Wings and talons
As a complementary model to the Mother of Maggots, the Lord of Flies is its body guard; armed with long, razor sharp talons, and a long probiscus it uses to inject new poxes into its victims (or sucking their innards).... pics below!















Models used: flying hive tyrant legs, drone bitzm nurglings from nurgling bases, some rocks from GF9, lots of GS.

Second model up is my Mother of Maggots, another DP w/ wings and Talons. Together, these form the spearhead of my Nurgle and DG forces!

Inspired by some Drone models I acquired, I figured I'd make my own themed Demon Princes... I thought of s disgusting slug monster that gave birth to giant maggots attended by nurglings. The results are below!














Parts used: parts from 2 different drones, nurglings from nurgling bases, lots and lots of green stuff.


I also created two Foul Blightspawn from some Plague Marines, did some chop shopping and used a lot of my random PB bitz... I think they look awesome!

Another update following quickly behind my last.

The last two days I spent building some Nurgling bases, a Gnarlmaw my wife bought me, and some objective markers.

First up, objective markers:





This is a Death Guard weapons cache; just a few weapons in a holding cell, plus a backpack and 'nades. Nothing too crazy







This objective made me realize just how small a 40mm base really is, LOL! This is a still alive Plague Marine, hes got corrosive ooze and tendrils crawling from his corpse. Being at the front lines he has valuable intel that the Death Guard could use... or maybe just a corrupted gene seed.





These are my other four objective markers; Nurglings guarding an ancient Nurgle tome, a Death Guard banner with some severed heads scattered about, a barrel of toxins that the Death Guards plague surgeons and Blightspawns could use, and lastly (my favorite) a small warp portal with a plaguebearer crawling out.









Heres my Gnarlmaw. You will notice I placed less bells off the branches (I love them, wanted to keep the bits). As well, I kept the top tendrils for my portal objective idea. I placed some extra nurglings all around, but also felt that something had to FEED the Gnarlmaw; maybe the nurglings bring back dead marines for it to feed on? So I added two "absorbed" marines to the side, slowly being integrated into the Gnarlmaw.






And last, but not least, some nurgling bases! I'm going for 6 total, but I was short one 40mm base lol. Nothing special about these, just added a few missing arms from stretching them onto multiple bases.

C&C is always welcome!

Trying to come up with a paint scheme is becoming pretty hard...

Being The Host of Flies, I feel like dark grey armor would be extremely suiting; kinda wish there was a grey-green. What are others thoughts?

You have really gone mad with green stuff. I like it. Maybe invest in some silicon sculpting tools?

That said you can do medical scrubs green.

What up buddy! Silicon tools... I think I saw people using those in videos. Thats an excellent idea, I've been using hair combs, butter kives, tooth picks, pen caps and plastic paint mixers for my trextures and flattening. I like the results, but maybe silicon tools are a better solution?

They wont stick too the green stuff as an advantage. I often use olive oil as a coat on green stuff to prevent sticking for the tools you described. When cured i was the model with dish soap.

I said it eariler in an edit. But maybe medical green would be good color choice?

I'm definitely gonna get some tools, I've been using just water with great results with non-stickage, I know oils better though. Actually someone messaged me a picture of the "Dusk Raiders" (https://terraluna5.deviantart.com/art/Dusk-Raider-505349982) and that scheme is very much like what I was thinking. Might swap the red for green, though. Guess this was the paint scheme "before death guard"?

Looking sick there nurgle man. Bulking pox walkers can be soul crushing at times.

Seems like you are using washes over white technique?

Yessir! I've landed on three skin shades: Agrax Earthshade (dark brown guys), Seraphim Sepia, and Camoshade. I primed everyone with Krylon Paint + Primer matte white, then did two coats of their skin color. The minor tidbits are all painted red (cloth) and grey (belts and "leather"). metal was all done in leadbelcher, horns in rotting flesh then washed with earthshade. Lastly, I highlight the teeth and hit them with nuln oil, wash any clothing with earthshade, and hit the weapons with some Nuln Oil. This helps me to differentiate squads by skincolor if I want to, but also ties the Poxwalkers together with my Dark Grey paint scheme I'll be doing. I did minimal highlighting because I feel like a Nurgle army would be very grimey, and not very clean.

I also just got in some Tamiyra Red and Green Gloss, I tested it on one walker and it makes his bloody guts look much more convincing! I'll try and get some better pics, but I appreciate the support I'm gonna hit up the game store here this week and pick up a lot more paints, plus one of the base texture paints (doing nurgley swamp bases from the Citadel Paint app) to get these guys finished!

The texture paints are a good choice. They work well!

I did all the admech in them... sure i have photos in my gallery. That said I like your method. Would love to see the blood effect. I find GW's blood effect good - pretty sure its a red and gloss mixture.

Keep the momentum going for me.

Thanks bud! I'll get some better pics here in a few weeks, parents are in town next week from Albuquerque, not much painting gonna happen for a while. I did batch paint the skin colors and bone bits on my remaining walkers, and started on the red cloth (got 23 done, 13 to go!)

These are some amazing Nurgles! I just started collecting them a few months ago but have yet to even assemble them. You are so incredibly skilled with GS and those Poxwalkers are looking awesome. Loving the skintone!

I want to dig into my Nugles so bad but I already have so many things built and primed it would be such a naughty thing to do to start more projects before finishing what's already started...

I appreciate it! I returned to the game and instantly chose Death Guard; I've always been a huge chaos fan back in 5th, and having a reason to collect my favorite faction (Demons) and some cool Marines was enough for me! But yes, back in my 5th ed days I had 4 armies that were completely unpainted, and eventually (over time) I finished painting 3 of 4 of the armies. However, it wasn't to a very good standard I feel, so I'm trying to take a bit more time with these models.

I feel you though... After these 50 poxwalkers, I have 40 cultists to paint... then I need to work on my tanks/HQ's for my primary list, plus 30 Plaguebearers and their HQ's, and some nurglings. Its daunting, so I definitely feel for people with (even more) than me! However, as many have said, it feels good to finish painting.

I just need to not go ADD and start painting other models though.... it gets kind of boring painting the same models over and over, but once you have your method down, it seems to go much faster. I actually enjoy batch painting because its a bit mindless after a bit, lol!

Thanks for visiting!

Howdy all,

So been a while since I updated. Been slowly painting all my poxwalkers, its a slow process, but they're lookin good IMO. I also got to test paint a single cultist... I'm slowly building my paint collection, its slow though, so bear with me. I've also gathered 30 plaguebearers, a scrivener, a ton of nurglings, and more to add to my army... nothing too special, but I wanna get all mu cultists and walkers done before I dive into the larger stuff (plus it gives me time to buy more paints).

Without further ado: MOAR POXWALKERS!





My first Cultist. I picked an extremely neutral scheme that way playing them as mark of XYZ wouldn't matter much. I like it, though it was time consuming.




What are your thoughts? Also, my wife has agreed to lend me her light cube and DSLR for great pictures once all my Poxwalkers are completed and based. Stay tuned!

Thanks so much York That means a lot coming from you! I do love how they turned out, I still have 39 more to finish though. 20 need based, the other 19 need finished painting and basing. However, I just finished my Bachelors degree, so now I have a lot of free time to paint while the wife does homework!

Finished ALL 48 Poxwalkers (dullcoated, flocked, and all that jazz)! So excited to see all this work completed....










Next up: 39 more cultists, then I get to work on some Plague Marines to get my armored scheme down. Thinking something akin to pre-heresy Dusk Raiders.....

C&C is always welcome!

Finished my first Plague marine modeled after the pre-heresy "dusk raiders". I wanted his armor to look like it was peeling and underneath was corroded armor, befitting a plague marine. What do ya'll think? (sorry for the bad photo quality, didn't have time to set up my light cube!)












I also started on my 40 cultists... I have my first tournament in 3 weeks, so I want to have my Cultists at least done; even if the rest of the army is primed or bare plastic

Howdy all,

Time for a monthly update! Recently I took 3rd in my first ITC tourney, which made me super stoked. My wife (being as awesome as she is) bought me a third PBC, which I don't have images of currently sorry :( She also got me more paints, and a box of Pusgoyle Blightkings! These I turned into Epidemus and a third prince, which were both used in my tourney list. I'm loving all this conversion work I get to do!

So first up is my newest demon prince, Chime: Demon Prince of Nurgle. Chime was once a great banner bearer and bard for the Death Guard legions, playing the song of nurgle wherever he tread. Papa Nurgle loved his music so much, as a price for ascension to demon-hood, he was required to carry the Bells of Nurgle with him for all eternity. Chime is a being of pure corruption, dragging his bells and playing the songs of papa nurgle for all to hear. His legs regrow as he moves, leaving pools of corruption and decay wherever he goes. On the tabletop he is a Demon Prince with Wings, hellsword/talon, and he carries the Corruption artifact.








The pictures are slightly outdated; the barrel was there to hold him up as he dried, the holding points being his bell and the leg of GS. Hes dry now and holds up just fine. As well, I removed the toothpicks from his top; they were supposed to be bone spikes, but I didn't like how they turned out. Instead he looks kind of like he has a plague hive, which I like.

Next up is a nearly completed Foul Blightspawn. After looking over my previous marine, I really didn't like how he turned out; he didn't have much depth and it felt too.... busy. So I simplified the color scheme, and instead of "reinventing the wheel" I used a dark Death World Forest as the base color, and the results I really liked. All thats left is dullcoat and some flock!




The only things I would really change with this guy is that his orbs don't have the green dots on the sides; I was trying to simulate the tanks of the original model, but it looks pretty meh. The next one I'll leave them all black with green gloss, or I'll paint the tanks various hues of green with the green gloss to simulate the ooze inside them. Otherwise I really love how he turned out!


Last up is my version of Epidemus. like many, I hate the original model; dude looks like a big pile of ass on some nurglings. I also wanted mine to be more unique and fit with my established demon prince theme... so, I used a pusgoyle blightking kit, added some plaguebearer bits/death guard bits, and wala!








This is also slightly outdated as well. I have since removed the front claws to make it look less tyranid and imposing (dudes only str 5 after all), I also modified in some more tentacles in place of the claws. Lastly I added more nurglings, so I'll remember that dang rule.

C&C is always welcome!

Another quick update!

Traded my buddy some Plague Marines (because who uses those anyway? lol...) from my Dark Imperium/normal box for a spare Rhino, Bloat Drone, and poxwalkers I owed him for before.... of course, I had to nurgle-fy it! Take a gander

Thanks for stopping in Kernal! I got him primed up and in my Queue, after I get my bazillion plaguebearers completed the princes and Epidemus are next Can't wait to get to them, but I'm enjoying painting the PB's!



Speaking of Plaguebearers.... another update, I got 6 of them done; need to finish the bases, and maybe rework the pox pustles (I don't have a yellow... so I did neon green with a wash of nurgle rot), but they turned out better than I hoped!







Last pic is a finished one next to one I blocked in, but haven't finished.

Overall extremely pleased, these guys take a lot of work, but the results are awesome. I really like the new PB's versus the old ones!

Thanks for the comment York!

Yes, I recently took 3rd in an ITC (they weren't even primed back then lol) and used the money I won to purchase some army painter green primer and some more paints. Finished em yesterday and they're gonna hit the table for my next battle report here in another couple weeks! Plaguebearers are amazing, I wish I had 30 more, but alas.... adulting sucks.

Howdy all,

So I've been working diligently the past 2 days to finish my Gnarlmaw, and after much work, he is done! I also got around to finishing some Nurglings and flocking my spawn and plaguebearers, so I got more photos of em all. Couple notes: 1) sorry for the bad photo quality and weird lighting, taking cell photos sucks (one day I'll bribe my wife to use her camera...) 2) once I applied dullcoat my blood effects gloss went away for the most part, as well as the nurgles rot on all the pustles. Lesson learned! I wanna send a shout out to Winterdyne (who posted his Oldhammer nurgle army) for the inspiration and motivation to complete mine.

Without further ado.....

Gnarlmaw pre-dullcoat and flock


Gnarlmaw post flock/dullcoat




Gnarlmaw details (because everyone likes close ups)












Nurglings






PB's + Blightspawn








C&C always welcome, super excited how these turned out!

Thanks for checking in Monkey!

Yes, the Gnarlmaw is an incredible model, and I'm excited to have painted one; really want a few more, too bad they're not as good as their AoS counterparts Still... I would recommend anyone who can build and paint one just for the experience

Thanks so much York! I will agree, my skills have improved; partially because the demon models are so much fun to paint!


That said, yet ANOTHER update! I got around to priming all the rest of my stuff, but also I painted one of my demon prince conversions! I think it turned out pretty neat

Howdy all,

Short update; getting a game in sunday, started some work on a PBC. Think I got the armor down to how I like it, just needs rusty streaks added. PBC's are a lot more work than I figured, took 3 thin base coats to cover all the white primer! Take a look.

Hey Fango thanks for stopping in! Yes, Sennacherib has some awesome stuff! I have his bookmarked



As for an update, I finished my PBC today. I think it turned out exceptionally disgusting. I went for a "wartorn" look, but heavy corrosion, rust, and lots of blood on the tracks from all his victims. I also painted the head with a lot of nurgles rot (AKA Puss) and painted a lot of eyes. Makes it creepy as hell. The only part I wish I could redo was his teeth... but oh well! I need to also get around to taking some high-res shots of everything, my cell makes a lot of stuff look kinda... meh.. in comparison to in person. I also need to finish up his magnetized guns; but that will take like 30 minutes tops. I wanted to get photos up of him

Please leave some C&C

Howdy all,

So TREMENDOUSLY HUGE update here. Please bear with me, because this is a massive one.

This month was a big one for painting because I have an upcoming ITC tourney... and then I changed my list and got some new stuff so.... there goes that! haha. But it doesn't mean I have slowed down, not by a long shot!

First up we have my second coverted Foul Blightspawn, I call him "Mega-Spawn" (because I like megaman...). He has been based since these pics






Second set up, I painted my five blightlords which I was gonna use.... Not gonna use them currently because my list idea kind of fell through (Typhus + Blightlords didn't work as well as I figured lol). However, they turned out FAN-FRIGGIN-TASTIC! Bases are still WIP




















(This was to show how they are magnetized)




Automatically Appended Next Post:
For the second half of my post....

I bought and converted up two Helverins to add to my army for some much needed ranged firepower. I call them Snot (the slimy one) and Rattle (the damaged/dinged up one).

I have a whole story for them but thats for another time...

Hello again all!

Quick update:

Painted my ahriman up. I used purple because, well, I realized I had no blues in my paints... so I have a slanesh looking Ahriman. But ya know what? He looks neat.




Next up, I finally based and finished my blightlords. My wonderful wife also took some photos for me with her DSLR!




Also got some more photos of previous models done





PBC new photos







And last, but certainly not least, Rattle the helverin got some paint I think he turned out excellent







On the building front I kit bashed two bikers (pics to come), also built 21 more Plaguebearers including a custom instrument bearer, three plague drones, and 9 more nurglings. I also have two normal demon princes, which my goal is to prime all of this in the next week or so.

Stay tuned!

Howdy everyone,

So wanted to post a quick update. I'm in the flood/hurricane area for hurricane florence, so had to evacuate; hopefully all my stuff doesn't get lost in the storm, but what can you do? More important stuff had to come over my models. That said, I wanted to post an update at what I got finished before I had to hightail out. I'll post an update whenever I'm allowed home as to what survived!

Heres one of my Undivided Demon princes, he has a magnetized right arm with all options available


I also changed all my objective markers to double as nurgling bases









I also used three plague drones to make actual plague drones! One with axe/mace is the leader, then we have a banner (Instrument bearer will be with my next group whenever that is)






My second poxbringer, influenced and inspired by Dark Souls...


Second plaguebearer squad instrument bearer; its a blind, peg legged plaguebearer with a nurgling drummer. Hard to see in this pic


And last, but certainly not least, two Chaos Biker Lords; one is Power Axe/Combi-Bolter, second is a Power Fist (or lightning claw) + combi-whatever. Both are super kit bashes







C&C as always is welcome

Howdy all,

So made it through Hurricane Florence! After getting back home, I was without power for 4 days, had a hole in my roof (flooding in my aster bedroom/bathroom), but otherwise nothing really got damaged. So I had a bit of time to paint... so behold my two Black princes; Undivided demon princes with magnetized weapon options. Both are used for whatever non-nurgle demon prince option I want. I tied all four of the gods primary colors into the scheme, and I think they turned out pretty good! Just need to flock them and paint the weapon arms.












Painting otherwise is slowing down; I have a couple other large models to paint, but its mostly masses of troops (rest of my cultists, new plaguebearers, etc.) so probably won't have another update for a lil bit. C&C is always welcome!

So slight update...

After the nerf to Tzeentch (poor dudes), I'm gonna focus more on the Nurgly bits. As such, I invested in buying a Renegades box which is supposed to be here monday Will give me a good basis of a Renegade Knights detachment, having 2 Helverins and 2 Knights. Pretty excited to get converting these beasts into Death Guard knights

Post by: Zid


Howdy all,

So my Knights came two days earlier than expected

Using the magnets and GS I had on hand, I started on one... this is where I got to (NOTE: HEAVILY CONVERTED!!!!)







I used the following in my conversions:
- Chopped off claws from Plague Drone arms I had leftover, made teeth and "hair" for the skull
- Skull came from the piece of terrain that came with Renegades, I cut it off and filed down parts, then filled with GS
- Knee Mouth is the belly from a Blightking
- Codpiece mouth is a shoulderpad from a plague marine
- the shield emblem is a filed down Blightking shield
- Pilot thats mounted in his chest is the banner from the Pusgoyle Blightlords


I also converted a second Gatling Cannon; needs some GS to finish hiding the Q-tip tubes though


This used a Havoc Launcher, and the parts to the Thermal Cannon, plus some Q-tips chopped down to make the basis for the length. I'll GS around the Q-tips to make it look cohesive.

C&C is always welcome, my goal is to have this finished this week with the second one right behind (the second one will be far easier, I am using most of my bits on the first one )

Howdy all,

So been hard at work spending many hours working on my two Knights of Chaos... and my efforts have borne fruit!

Behold the first completed knight; dubbed "The Hallowed One", this knight is a work that would make Papa Nurgle proud...

















Here are some pre-primed close ups for those interested





As you can see, everything is magnetized, and heres some shots of some of the weapons









And finally, my pride and joy: I call it the Thermal Gatling Cannon! This weapon doubles as either a gatling cannon or a thermal spear.... kinda lame Renegades came with only a single damn gatling cannon :/


So my thought process behind The Hallowed One was I wanted the Knight to be much more organic and fleshy, with metal being less prominent. I also wanted to test myself doing demonic iconography for the first time, and doing a lot of bulbous flesh and things. I think he turned out pretty neat, I especially love his face leg and shoulder

The second Knight I think I'll call "Dominus Putridium", which I guess is latin for Putrid Master... anyways, I wanted metal to be the highlights of this guy, with a lot of sharp angles, damaged metal, like a demon was aching to burst from him at any moment. I think hes pretty damn cool!
















He is also magnetized, so everything is interchangable. I also made sure both halves are magnetized, so I can separate the knights for easier transport.

Heres a group shot of both with weapons on; obviously loadouts will vary...




C&C always welcome

Now that you mention it... yeah, I guess he looks very plague-marine esque.

I just wanted one to feel like he was more machine than demon, and vice versa, kinda like how I did the Armigers.

I'll be taking one of these to my next Battle report game (its up in the Batt reps forum) and I'm so torn... I love the look of both. Putridium will probably be the one I take though, mostly because its a very death guard centric list and I'll need the powers of nurgle to win against 4 knights

Howdy all,

So some more updates. My wife surprised me with tons of plasticard, some droppers for my paints, and another get started nurgle set! So I was able to build some new stuff, I also traded the terrain from the renegades box for a box of bloodletters.

First up, some bloodletters modified with tails








Secondly, I was able to complete a full 6 Plague Drones building now, so... awesome! I might want 3 more eventually to complete a unit, I used my first box tko convert two demon princes (and traded the third for a ton of bits when I was new)


Lastly, I started painting on the Knights! This is about 4 hours of progress, with a lot of tweeks based on some local feedback









Then I got more feedback and someone gave me the excellent idea to water down Ryza Rust to get some depth in my shades of rust....






My brother said it looks like it was dredged up from a swamp on dagobah... so I'd say thats pretty successful! Looking for some feedback before I progress onto the details

Dang! I love those Knights!! Fantastic work -- particularly the conversion and greenstuff-ery. You can practically smell the chaos reek coming off of those creatures.
What I particularly appreciate about your work is its narrative dimension. Corruption and consecration to the Ruinous Powers should be... well, ruinous. More than a matter of slapping on a few icons or spikes. It should be a process that wrenches and re-constitutes its engines and vessels. As you have done here. Well done, sir.

Thanks Tinfoil! I appreciate your words of kindness; getting feedback about my work really reinvigorates me I do enjoy how you can literally take anything, nurgle it up, and use it in your army... we're like the Chaos version of Orks.

So a slight update, getting prepared for next weeks battle rep by finishing a few Knight weapons.... so Rustbucket is mostly finished. I might get around to the base before the game... maybe.

















All magnetized and snazzy


Once his base is finished I suppose I'll get started on all the cultists I began long ago, but never got around to finishing >.>

Thanks Monkey! And thanks for stopping in again

On an update, I got ol' rustbucket on the table; check out the rep in the battlereps forum! Turkey day is next week, and a couple weeks after that I leave to texas for a while, so it may be some time til I get around to painting again... but I do plan to pack and bring at least a 2k force with me to Texas to throw some dice.

Oh, and I picked up two second hand Defilers and a blightspawn for $65, which was a great deal; the defilers loadouts are terrible, but I'll fix em good!

Howdy all,

Ahhh.... the day after thanksgiving. After playing some Red Dead Redemption 2 this morning, I decided to get some modeling in; as I mentioned previously I got two defilers secondhand for a banging deal; $50 for both was a steal! Th guy who sold me them even found the Power Scourge arms for them.




As you can see they were in OK shape, terrible loadouts though. I'm lazy and I don't strip models unless they're metal, but they sat on my desk all week... staring at me. I asked around to see how people play them, and while 1k sons sounded the best, Nurgle is my thing... and I have green stuff... so I tore off the arms and head off the red one, and the head and left arm off the green one.




Then I rummaged around my bitz boxes... I knew I wanted both to have a power scourge, and I knew I could make something look like a heavy bolter. I also wanted the heavy bolter one to get a combi bolter; maybe both will get a combi...







At this point I saw someone post a spider defiler on one of my facebook groups, which looked pretty neat! Of course, I'm not as good as this dude was, but I told myself "I want something to really stand out!"... so I decided one defiler would maintain its "defilerness" and the second would be radically altered; both would have nurgle elements, of course.

So with defiler one, I wanted to change the head (the tiny defiler heads look stupid) and make it slightly demonic. So I just tossed some bitz on him, light GS work, and wala... 20 minutes and he was essentially done.






I know its not super impressive, but that was kind of the idea... this seems to be "my thing"; when I do pairs of models, like my knights, one gets a ton of GS work, while the other gets mostly bitz additions. I like to maintain a good mix of organic and machine elements; nurgle is known for having both in spades!

Then the second one I went balls deep on. This guy was chosen to be the spider model because I had to tear off both arms anyway, but also he wasn't glued very much, so just prying with a screwdriver dismantled him easily. The idea I wanted to go with was a sort of scorpion/spider hybrid, using the helbrutes power scourge as a "stinger", and mixing demon and machine both in equal parts.











At this point I still had not figured out how to craft my "counts as" heavy bolter... but the general idea looked great. I also disliked that it was too organic, and I wanted it to have more machine to it. Digging through my bitz I came across a bunch of hoses and tubes, as well as exhausts, from my Armiger conversions.... herm.... then a lightbulb











Ahhhhh... yes, much better! He still needs some green stuff work over whats done; creating more flaps of flesh, making it more bulbous overall, and combining the machine tubes and parts to me more cohesive. But overall I think the idea is there! Hes drying on the table and I should get to finish him tomorrow I need to really paint more, but I leave for texas in three weeks :/

C&C is always welcome!

Post by: Zid


@ Graven: Thanks buddy!

@ Monkeytroll: Hell yeah! Defilers have good parts to make other stuff from.

@ Lindsay40k: Haha... I'm glad someone noticed I love sneaking a Nurgling in when I can

So I went ahead and finished up the modeling on both Defilers today.

First up, the green one:





Bulked up his scourge arm a bit more, then added just some fleshy pockets all over to just add a bit of contrast... nothing much there.

Now onto the real guy: the Arach-no-filer:









Some close ups of all around him, including the bottom:



















So I placed GS anywhere I put bitz on the model yesterday, and slowly worked around the bitz to make them look more incorporated into the fleshy bitz. Overall I think it looks like something straight out of Doom, which I dig. I also wanted the Nurgling to look like he clawed his way out of the spider, so made the flesh peeling away, and lots of little gashes. On the other side, I incorporated the mouth a lot more, and made some small eyes; I really like how I did the eyes here and might do this to all the eyes on this model. I pushed the beads in, then folded the GS over the bead to give it an eyelid so it looked demonic and angry... surprised myself with this. I like it when you get inspired to do something and it comes together.

Now the question is.... what to name him?

As always feel free to leave me some C&C

Sorry for the long lapse in updates....

Recently took 1st in an event with my chaos! woo hoo! I haven't had jack all for time to paint with a recent promotion at work.... oh and I got smash brothers, lol.

That said, I picked up 5 more Blightlords and will be (hopefully) painting them you before long and paint my last Armiger. This will give me what Don Hooson ran at BAO, which I feel is a solid ITC style list and at least gives me SOMETHING fully painted... at least until I can paint all my nurglings and run my version.

I also picked up another 20 Bloodletters, and my wife got me a box of Blue Horrors, plus a get started Khorne set... so I have a bunch of building. I think this will be it for buying new models for a while; I really need to get what I have painted so I can run anything I want in events without feeling dirty with unpainted and unprimed models.

I appreciate it! I learned to GS on this army, the beauty of nurgle is... even your worst work can work


Another update for everyone: scored 3 Contemptor Dreads for $45, two boxes of bloodletters, and a box of Blightlords... as well as a Maulerfiend Time to get to work... just a teaser; heres the Blightlord Sergeant; the clainfist counts as a bale axe. He also doubles as a Death Guard Terminator Lord

Haha, thanks! Actually for xmas i just got the mauler, one box of letters, and some horrors. I found the contemptors second hand and horribly painted and the guy was getting out of 30k... the lords came from tournament winnings. And the last box of letters i traded the death angel board game for (i never played it).

I will say my new years goal is that i cannot get any more models til i build and paint what i have.... and doing a rough tally, i have a lot of work ahead of me!

Howdy everyone,

So as I mentioned earlier, I was able to pick up 3 Contemptor dreads for dirt cheap from a local player who got some given to him. They were, as you could guess, very poorly painted... but whatever!

Anyways, I've been sent for training to Texas, so I figured what better time to go ahead and make my Death Guard Contemptor squad finally. Not to mention I just got a Maulerfiend, so his gatling cannon arms would make some good butcher cannons...

Thus I packed up a lot of tools and a bag of bitz, and off I went! I picked up some small tubes of loctite at the Walmart here to assemble the models, flying with super glue would be a horrible idea.

What I started with was three dudes not much unlike this guy...


Way too loyalist for my liking. I pried off the arms, and popped them off their bases to make them easier to work with. As mentioned, I do not strip models unless they really need it... the spray paint coats over it anyway, and these guys didn't have gobbed on paint.

I arrayed everything I had brought with me, and picked through my bitz to find what I may need:


Perfect. I had pre-planned and looked up various Contemptor conversions on the ol' google-ator, and had found some neat ideas. Because I was going to go ahead and use my Forgefiend Hades Autocannons as one set of my "butcher cannons", I wanted the other sets to look similar.

So the first one I did up was this guy:










He is still unnamed, but the idea was gathered from a conversion I found online. Essentially I built the cannons by hallowing out two of the dreadnaught fist arms, I had to cut and reposition one because they only came as left hands> Next, I cut lengths of plasti-tube to make a gatling barrel. I had one hallow tube, and one solid tube, so I used hallow ones on the outside and the solid one in the middle to hold them together. I did try and reform the tubes, but I think cutting it make them perma-deformed :/ Anywho, once the arms were made, I used GS to make it look more seamless, added on a demon prince loincloth and some chains, a death guard plague marine head, and some nice spikes. I really liked how he was posed, so I'm not disappointed at all how he looks. Feels pretty dynamic to me!

Next up I already had glued the cannons together, so I figured I'd make the next dread using those arms. What I created... I mean, look at this guy!





He screams "badass", reminds me of a mechwarrior or some menacing death machine. His pose I really love, definitely gives off the "come at me bro" aura. Obviously I glued the arms to two of the dread shoulders, then added some chains to make them more... mean. I had a couple heldrake pads laying around, so I trimmed and fitted them as leg plates, which I think look really unique. To pull together the heavy metal vibe I added more chains, then green stuffed some of those rhino spike plates I have a ton of but never use. Finished him off with a topper I chopped when I converted a lord of contagion to typhus, and wala! I think hes friggin awesome.

And lastly... this dude.






At this point I had ran out of my smaller plasti-tube, so I figured I would repurpose the assault cannon arm. I added a blade from the heldrake plates to make it more like the "official" Butcher cannon. Then I converted another dread arm, only this time I had to use thicker tube; makes it look like a triple barrel shotgun. I'm not too stoked with him compared to the others, hes alright. Definitely not my best work. I feel bad because it feels like he was cobbled from the scraps I didn't use on the other two lol...

Family photo time!




And luckily when I bought these the owner had some spare Havoc Launchers he threw in with the deal; so I magnetized them as shoulder weapons I kind of wish I had done them sideways, but meh...

Zids model Tally
So I had to do a tally of what I have, painted and unpainted, because my resolution this year: get everything friggin painted. I have finished building everything aside from my Maulerfiend, which hes not getting anything special... lol. I want to keep him basic because hes not a death guard option, and I may use him outside of my Nurgle lists. So heres what I have painted and unpainted:

PAINTED MODELS
1 Demon Prince of Nurgle
2 Generic Demon princes
48 Poxwalkers
11 Cultists
30 Plaguebearers
6 Nurglings
1 Renegade Knight with Gatling Cannons and Icarus AC
1 Armiger
Ahriman
2 Foul Blightspawns
1 Scrivener
1 Poxbringer
3 Plagueburst Crawlers
1 Plague Marine (Counts as Lord)
Typhus
5 Blightlords
1 Gnarlmaw

UNPAINTED
1 Death Guard Rhino
6 Plague Drones
3 Bloat Drones
2 Demon Princes of Nurgle
2 Defilers
3 Contemptor Dreads
1 Maulerfiend
1 Armiger
1 Renegade Knight (plus all the other weapon options)
1 Foul Blightspawn
1 Slopity Bilepiper
31 Plague Bearers
30 Bloodletters
29 Cultists
10 Khorne Zerkers
1 Chaos Lord of Khorne
2 Terminator Sorcerers
5 Blightlords
3 Plague Marines
12 Nurglings
10 Blue Horrors
10 Brimstone Horrors
2 Biker Lords of Chaos
Demon prince weapon arms (for the generic princes)

Whew... thats a whole lot!

I think they make a good differentiation to be called butchers cannons instead of another weapon.


So slight update,we have a narrative tourney in February and i have deigned that i will play a painted list in the event... as such, i have to paint 6 terminators, 2 drones, and 2 dreads before then. Can i do it...? Stay tuned to find out!

Today i did prime and basecoat all the models i need to paint; tomorrow i plan to get all armor washes done and paint my armor colors completely; hopefully i can get some of my minor base coating done as well (i.e. fleshy bits). Ill get pocs up when i can

Howdy all,

So getting ready for a 1500 point event next month and decided I wanted to enter in for Best Painted for once; I might lose, but damnit... I'm gonna do it!

Being a narrative event we are limited to a single Battalion, single codex (forgeworld allowed)/faction, and max two of any non-troop unit... oh and no special characters. Taking inventory, I realized Death Guard was my best bet at creating a fun, well rounded list. I decided to "fluff it up" and center the list around Terminators; everything supports them, and this kind of fits the Vigilius narrative. I would have done Poxwalker hordes, but I need Typhus to do that :(

So the list (boiled down):
Demon prince (painted)
Terminator Sorc Lord (unpainted)
10x Blightlords w/ bolters, axes, two flails, two blightlauchers (5 unpainted)
10x Poxes (painted)
10x Cultists (painted)
10x Poxes (Painted)
2x Bloat Drone w/ spitters (unpainted)
2x Contemptors w/ dual butchers and havoc (unpainted)

The list will play very well I feel, and not be overwhelming for newbies; everything is killable within a well designed list. I purposely avoided using my PBC's, while it would have lightened the painting load, dealig with 10 termis and 2 PBC's is rough, especially because there will be no Knights or Primarchs in this event. It should be fun.

That said, I have a bit of work to do:
6 Terminators
2 Dreads
2 Drones

To paint within... 3 weeks? Maybe 4? So I hopped on it.











Welcome Bloaty the Bloat Drone to the fold!










And... Dready the Dreadnaught!

Yeah I know, creative names... lol.

6 terminators, 1 Drone, 1 Dread left! C&C welcome as always.
