Hello there Private Benjamin !

I do get quite a lot of enjoyment of making something out of nothing, or at least giving new life to old models.

It's been too cold and wet outside to spray paint a base coat, so I tried one by hand.





A quick paint job, so it looks more Kastelan than Hulk Buster

I spent the weekend talking Adeptus Custodes and Chaos Daemons with my gaming friends. Custodes are a bit out of my budget at the moment, but I did figure out how to add Flamers of Tzeentch and Brimstone Horrors to my Chaos Daemon forces using an eye for conversion, clippers, and saws.

Those look cool. What are they originally from?

Heroclix: Avengers Vs. X-Men.

They are fragments of the Phoenix Force.

The Flamers are Colossus Fragments simply rebased.

The Brimstones are Cyclops Fragments that I cut up with wire cutters to chop off the head and wing to use.

The original plan was to simply use them as is, but even the smallest fragment (Namor) was taller than an Adeptus Astartes Space Marine

Thanks. They turned out nicely, that was good thinking and good work.

I figured that I'd make sure I had 90 Brimstones, just in case the supply dried up. Wanted to have enough in case I couldn't make matching models later on.




Not that I needed them, but I also wanted to try 20 Slaanesh Furries



They still need to to be painted, but I love the sculpt.

Nice stuff, good eye for models.

What are the Furies from?

Brimstone is a stroke of genius, excellent work.

Furies' are Heroclix? Great spot and by the time you paint them up will look spot on.
How much and where?

The model I used for the Furies is a Heroclix Chaos War Dinah Soar.

Inspired by Miniatures Mashup on this one

Furies are looking excellent.

Second bot is looking spot on, nice work on the arms.

Thanks Cam!!

I was trying to channel into the Furies having a very Beastmaster Winged Devourers vibe.

Spoiler:






I remember seeing that movie as a kid and all I really remember about it were those monsters.

Walked away from the local gaming shop with a box of deals soo good I almost felt guilty.

One of these deals was a bad of nearly 400 d6 for $5.

My wife questioned the wisdom of my purchase.








5 people just spent more than an hour playing with them.

I call that a bloody bargain...

Never had enough dice to make a dalek or a tardis...

I have a dice addiction. If I threw dice out as I used them, I'd still have enough to game for months, if not years.

Mostly it started with dice for D&D, but when 7th Edition 40K came out and I was rolling 60 dice at a time for my Ork boyz I started to feel the need to have sets of 30+ identical 6 siders.

I've been out of the 40K scene pretty much since Chapter Approved last year. We had a great D&D Campaign, played Gaslands for half the year, and played ICRPG, but then KILL TEAM came out...

So I refused to buy the starter box, but I broke down and bought the rule book. A quick perusal of the rules and I decided to use some of those KNOW NO FEAR Death Guard I had sitting around unused. F

Figured out my KILL TEAM and I needed a dozen models. It just kind of spiralled out of control from there..















Then there were 3 different Labor Day Weekend Sales that I got involved with where I scored models 30%-90% off. All those sales and I didn't find a single Plagueburst Crawler so I decided to scratch build one.

That is brilliant. Looks absolutely spot on.

I am not sure of the tank in general, I love yours and you have nailed it, but I struggle with why the completely different design. It's weird, I like it, it looks cool, and like I say you nailed it, but in my head it doesn't scan. I mean this is supposed to be a chapter of blokes who defected thousands of years ago and got corrupted, so no new kit in a long time, surely they should have some variety of 30k rhino, corrupted but still a 30k rhino. Or do I have it wrong, they didn't have rhinos in 30k!

Seriously love the design you have though, did you use a template?

Thanks Cam for the kind words.

About the tank, it's a Deathguard Plagueburst Crawler. They are not built on a Rhino Chasis.

There is a paper model for it that I used as a starting point. It saved me a lot of time by not having to determine scale measurements.

I was wondering why we hadn't seen you on dakkadakka in a long time. The other stuff you were doing sounds fun, and welcome back to 40k. The Plagueburst Crawler is looking good.

Yeah, I have a ton of hobbies but I only seem to really be able to focus on them one at a time.

Got a bit more work done today.



I changed the front armor to something a bit more curvy and more like the GW model.



Glued down the gears that the Cannon sits on.



The new 3 of each dataslates per army thing may bite me in bottom. I have a FIRST STRIKE, 2 KNOW NO FEAR, and 4 DARK IMPERIUM's worth of Death Guard on deck to be built and painted.

So a quick search of the GW website, some cut and paste plus, basic math and my Death Guard Collection looks like:
- 6 Death Guard Lord of Contagion , a huge, terrifying Chaos Space Marine covered in spiked, corrupted Terminator armour armed with a plaguereaper.
- 4 Death Guard Noxious Blightbringer armed with a cursed plague bell, plasma pistol and a tocsin of misery;
- 4 Death Guard Malignant Plaguecaster armed with a corrupted staff and bolt pistol;
- 41 Death Guard Plague Marines – 5 armed with boltguns and plague knives, 1 armed with plasma gun and plague knife, 1 plague champion armed with bolt pistol, plaguesword and power fist; 8 armed with boltguns and plague knives, 2 armed with a plasmagun; 1 wields a boltgun, 1 is armed with a blight launcher and 1 – the Champion, who leads the unit – has a plasma gun, power fist and plague knife;
- 6 Death Guard Foetid Bloat-drone – a huge, buzzing machine held aloft by rusted turbines – armed with plaguespitters and a plague probe;
- 106 Death Guard Poxwalkers – the rotten, shambling core of the army – armed with improvised weapons (hammers, claws, bayonets and metal pipes are featured.)
- 1 Myphitic Blight Hauler
- 1 Plague Burst Crawler - Heavy Stubber and Plague Spitters

During my 40K down time I also acquired a 7E Nurgle Chaos Army that I can pull models from. I'm pretty sure I'm going to convert 2-3 Biologus Putrifiers

Rivets, tracks, guns, all added. I think it may be ready for paint.





Already started building a second Plagueburst Crawler. This time I'm just wingin it and eye balling it.

I just built 100+ Poxwalkers, Deathguard, and cultists. Taking a break to post some pics.

Built a second Plagueburst Crawler.

Link to the gallery here: https://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-5462-59622_Adam%20Deathguard.html

There are 25 or so pics of it each step of the way.
