I think it’s the background and tree, but you last Nurgle pic has a real Christmassy vibe. All Reds and Greens and Bells! They look awesome though, a real horde of slathering death!

That is one incredibly generous friend! New on sprue must go for a pretty penny. I hope you keep us well informed on progress.

Thanks gobert! And you're right, Allen Blount IS a very generous friend and I'm very grateful to have him in my life.

If you didn't get to experience them in your youth, let me introduce you to one of the greatest sprues GW ever made!


The giant rat in particular was always a favorite of mine, but these 4 little gribblies were a great bargain combo of fantasy creatures.

They took way longer on moldline removal than I would have expected, but it's time to get some paint on them!

Got a test snotling done, whaddya think?

I had some contrast paint I wanted to use so I used the recipe from the painting coach, which is plaguebearer flesh shaded with biel-tan green.


I thought it made for a nice bright skin tone. Any thoughts/changes before I finish the rest of them?

I mean he's just a snotling but I gotta start somewhere...

That’s a great looking snotling, I say go for it! The Contrast paint works well even on these relatively simple sculpts. You’ll be done in next to no time if you stick with the Contrast. *buckles up for the ride

I’ve found the old stuff I have is much harder to clean mould lines from. I guess that’s part of the improvement in the moulds over the past millennia. Saying that, some of the new stuff is so detailed it’s hard to spot them until you get some paint on them

Well I can't go against your advise gobert, so I'm sticking with that snotling skin! Yeah the moldlines were a little silly, but I wonder if that isn't a little difference in the plastic, it seems slightly more brittle on the older ones.

Got a test rat and bat done, thoughts?



The rat was super easy, guilliman flesh all over followed by gore grunta fur.

Ratty looks good. I’d probably have gone for blacks, greys or dark browns. The bone colour helps with definition, but I think it might be a bit stark against the black.

Agreed on the old plastic, I wonder if it has just aged or whether it was always like that. My old brain can’t remember what it was like Back in the day

Better? Darker still?

That is a very cool gift you got there for Christmas and already making a good start. I like actually both bat color schemes, maybe use them to get some variety into them. Excited to see more of this set painted!

"Just a snotling..." Famous last words.

He looks good, as does the rat. I like the second bat over the first, but agree some variation would be cool.

Yep, I like him better. Viterbi’s idea of mixing them up would be good, maybe throw in some more colours, like Black Templar and do some mixing for variety?

Nice to see you back! Raising a glass to generous friends.

Love the snotling and the rat, I like the darker toned bat myself, and if it wouldn't drive you crazy having a mix of colors as suggested above would be really fun.
