Thanks

And I have not really decided what they are going to be yet. They will eventually get their own datasheets, but for now they are probably count as Defilers, as that is what they are (mostly) made of.

They were also designed before true LoS

And yes, they love Papa Nurgle.

Really like the gritty, rusted shades on everything. Definately plays to the rotting Nugle look. The paint on some of the Marines' heads looks a bit thick, but everything else looks really great

O H I am in the Webway...

The walkers look like defilers for sure. The main criticism I have for them is only game-wise. They will be VERY easily to see and VERY hard to hide. Otherwise the models are looking very nurgly lol ;D.

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster and if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you

Yeah, they are not exactly subtle. At least it means that they will not lack for targets to shoot at (assuming that they last long enough to shoot at something anyway)

And thanks for the comments

Nice job! That wep on Famine looks like one of the Grey Knight staves - Nemesis weapons I believe they are called? Anyway those are the best looking weapons in the game IMO and I love how you've adapted that to fit Chaos. I don't particularly like the look of Nurgle models (tends to make me throw up; I prefer Tzeentch) but I can't help but admire this. I also like the Dread - especially the Ultramarines symbol on the ground. Makes it look like some sort of "recently possessed" Chaos Dread (as in, the daemon just burst out and the Dread went berserk, tearing the symbol off etc.) As for the army as a whole . . . Looking forward to more!

@Styles1005:

Yes, Famine uses a Grey Knight arm with the blade replaced.

I like your interpretation of the dread. Although it was not what I intended, I like that you are able to make your own story from the model. That is something that I love people to be able to do , so I am glad that you posted

@ Everyone:

Thanks for the positive comments. If anyone has any suggestions/tips, just let me know, thanks

DP1(famine) deserves a complimentary "eeeeeeeeeewwwwww!!" and a thumbs up.

When you call an intimate moment with your partner "the Assault Phase"

Is that followed by a pile-in move?

That brings a whole new meaning to the term "Hit and Run"

Can that be following a deep strike, or do you have to wait until the next round?

I've had a few people asking me via PM how I painted these, and I did promise (quite a while ago now - oops!) to post a step by step.

The great thing about my method of painting is that it requires very little skill, as most of it is done with washes, it is also quite fast. The slowest part is painting the armour trim, which I hate doing.

I will edit this post at a later date with some pictures, but for now, here is a text only version of my "Silver's lazy painting of Nurgle Maries guide":

--------------------------------------

1) Basecoat chaos balck (or a mid-dark grey if you want a lighter colour final model).

2) Wash skull white (approx 2-3 parts water, 1 part skull white. Adjust the mixture depending on how white you want to make the armour).

2) a) OPTIONAL - wash with other bone colours, such as bleached bone, in areas that you want to be slightly richer. Works well for anything you want to look particularly bony, such as the feet on plague marine models, horns etc.

3) Paint on the armour trim - most of my models use a dark olive green colour I mixed a while ago. I can't remember the paints I mixed or the ratios, but it is about half way between black and goblin green, but any colour trim you want to use is good here... blue, green, red; whatever you want your war band to look like. Just do a couple of test models. The models in squad 5, the dread and the rhino all use plain ol' camo green.

4) Paint the bits and bobs - I use a slightly watered down (same thickness as milk) dwarf bronze for the armour joints, pipes etc, as well as painting any decals or badges you want on the armour.

5) Wash with flesh wash. Dilute the wash depending on how grubby you want the final armour to look. I think mine varies from about 2:1 (water:wash) to about 5:1.

6) Touch up details if you want.

I use a relatively large brush to apply the main washes, and it only takes about 30 seconds per model, per wash, so it is great for getting lots of models painted up fairly quickly.

--------------------------------------------------------

I will also post some WIP pictures of my LR later (I was going to enter it into the weathering contest, but I am way too slow at painting and it is nowhere near done... plus I have not really got any weathering products, so hey ).

Ok, brief update:

Some WIP shots of my Land Raider. It was going to be my entry into the nitty gritty armour contest, but I did not have enough time (ie I was too lazy) to finish it. Still a WIP at the moment, but enjoy.

Pretty cool stuff, I prefer a greener and "corroded white" scheme but your doing a great job on all the conversion work. Also, love the freehanding on the LR.

Thanks for the comment

I have to say that there is more to Nurgle than green slime. I am going for more of a rusted, fungal, unwashed look for my guys. Plus I don't really like green all that much, so the brownish hue offsets it somewhat

I think you mean too bad you are in the USA

Have you taken a look at the fluff on my site? I have not uploaded a whole load of it for my IG yet, as it keeps on crashing the browser every time I try and edit my wiki (stupid thing). Would love for your feedback, even with the fluff in it's current basic state.

Glad you like the models.

you may have said this but are you basing this fluff somewhat from the historic group the black hand?

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

Yeah that's cool, it's all personal preference. I'm just saying I really like the Post-Heresy Death Guard scheme, but it's good to see something different for a change.

I have to admit that I did google the group after I posted. I had not based my army on the faction, but I may see if I can find any interesting bits to include in the fluff.
