Thanks. The skin and muscles came out a bit sloppy, but he looks good at arms length!

No pictures yet, but I purchased the ogor half of the Feast of Bones, a butcher, and some accessories, and I'm starting Fyreslayers!

No, obviously it's going to be the Mawtribes, but I'm excited, because for the first time in a long while I have an actual idea and lore for a project, lack of which made working on my sce a chore. I've now got enough AoS-themed bits accumulated to sufficiently spruce up the old world designs I hope.

Experimented with a more muted palette with these guys. A nice finished effect, but repetetive to paint.

Love the scheme on those raven guys Gideon, very gloomy, suits the models well. As for me I've finished re-working my Morathi model, changed the base to a marble and blood theme and changed a few colours, notably on the robes. Hope you guys like her, you can see more pics on my painting log here on dakka, link is in my signature.

Really like the choice to keep the wing "fingers" flesh coloured, I think it works really nicely with your scheme and makes sense. Somehow more horrific too, like it no longer looks like a pretty lady nestled amongst all these monstrous bits but more of a monstrous whole.

Well said (and excellently painted!)

Thank you very much Da Boss and Ninthmusketeer! It always amazes me the stories we can tell with our miniatures by just using colour and hearing your interpretation of this matching very closely to my own makes me very happy that I was able to at least tell part of the story I wanted with this model.

Getting into AOS after man years and Éditions away from Warhammer (5th edition I believe). Always had a soft squishy spot for Nurgle, so maggotkin looks like the way I’m headed. I prefer the fallen/corrupted human side over demon side.

First test figures including a model I had stored away from Hell Dorado I believe which may be an objective or a familiar.


Have about 1200 points assembled currently, two Maggotkin starters and a lord of Plague.

Hm, I really like the overall image you are going for here but the color choice just strikes me as a bit too... healthy? I feel like tinting the skin one way or another to give it a pallid/grimy/jaundiced look would go a long way. But that is only my personal opinion. Regardless I like the 'clean' and organised paint work you have done here, it looks like you really have an eye for 'coloring inside the lines' so to speak, in a very good way.

I dunno, I really like the palid, purplish skin tone there.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I really like the plaid purple skin tones over the greenish hues normally seen on Nurgle models. I really want to stress the fact that they were human once and have succumbed to the influence of Nurgle more than all things green = Nurgle. Once I start to develope my demon side of the army I’ll think about doing more green skin tones, but I just like the sickly rotting flesh, which may become my demon colors too.

Anyway my Maggotkin army has exploded like unchecked Corona Virus. I found some great deals on Maggotkin starters (so I bought them )
My Army looks like this to pull from.
5starter boxes of Maggotkin
5Lord of Blights
10Pusgoyle Blightkings
25 Putrid Blightkings on foot
1 Lord of Plagues
The Wurmspat Underworlds warband
The Glottkin
And conversion parts
The previously posted objective victim
The old Mordheim Town Cryer
And a new add on from the dents and dings.

A plastic mammoth from somewhere which has no ears, tusks or tail. Perfect starting point for a converted Harbinger of Decay. Hopefully no one would have a problem with it being on a larger base (shown on a 50x90 oval above).

Painted my test Pusgoyle yesterday.

Started on the Wurmspat.

And the old town crier is ready for a repaint.


Stay safe. Working at a hospital I should entertaining right now .

Spent around £500 on Ossiarchs, tools and paints.

Been meaning to do this for a while, and given I’m working from home (and given the IT problems we’re having, that may not prove viable much longer) I’ve more time on my hands. So seemed the perfect time.

Oh wow that paint scheme on the plague drone looks awesome!

As to base size, generally speaking having a larger base is OK (within reason) but having a smaller base is a no-no. Smaller bases are generally advantageous. Fortunately one can simply blue-tack or magnetize smaller bases on top of larger ones if it really comes to that.

Lovely model Thadin! I really like the bone scheme and the contrast with the skulls. I noticed the fore-arm skulls didn't get done in the same contrast though. I think your armor could use another layer of highlight to really make it pop too, but may not be worth it if it isn't your strong suit (broad layering like that isn't one of mine). The model it beautiful as-is.

Very different approach to painting these. Underworlds is pretty fun to experiment with  though.

So, my lockdown project has been finished. These models where assembled, but locked away into a shelf for a loooooong time... I never seemed to find the time to get them finished. That is... Until now of course.

I've decided to for a custom colourscheme/stormhost that I decided to call "the Templars of Solitude". Seems fitting for these times.

Currently rehabbing a bunch of misc. goblins that've crept into the boxes over the years thanks to being left overs from Ebay lots etc.
Forming them into units/adding them to existing units, matching paint jobs to my existing force....
In the end I'll end up adding a few more spears, 5 wolves (got riders but no mounts), and tracking down about a dozen oop metal forest goblin archers to round out the units.
I'll also pick up a "newer" 6e(?) Doom Diver to operate alongside my goofy looking 4e(?) one. It's not really needed, I just want one.
