Lord of Blights and all the similar chubby chaos warrior models are really cool. Bluish green is a good shout for the base coat!
Here is my completed Nurgle Army. Possible I might add a Beast of Nurgle to it at some point in the future, but for now I am happy to be done painting boils and guts! Most of this was painted last year but the one squad of Plaguebearers was actually painted ages and ages ago.


I think the thing I am happiest with apart from having a completed army is the purple "realm of chaos" bases.

My 5th AOS army(gloomspite gits, mostly squig style for now) 2k+ is almost complete. Just minor base detail to be done for 3 models and then do base and 2k done and painted.

So FEC, Lumineth, Ogors, Stormcast and gits done for 2k games. Next do the slaves to darkness. Then back to stormcast that have biggest pile of models to paint...

Been working on my Bonereapers. Finished my Boneshaper, 10 Mortek Guard, and a unit of Necropolis Stalkers. Really enjoying working on these models. Now I just have to wait for our lockdown to be over before I can meet with anyone from my club to throw them on the table.

Thanks!

I'm painting them as the Stalliarch Lords, who are known for using fresh bone, which seeps blood. Lots of fun to add to the models and contrasts well with the bone.

I painted my Teclis/Celennar. I wasn't a fan of either of their faces, so I gave Teclis a light of Eltharion helmet and filled in the spirit of Hysh's face and painted a star scape on it.
I still have to paint some of the bits on the base though.

Two projects coming along nicely.

1) Undead halflings.
I recently finished cleaning & building a 2k pt Legion of Nagash force using TTCombat's undead halflings. As every model is resin there was considerable clean up & washing to be done. The clean up on each 1 piece model took as long as if I were building multi-part GW stuff....
And I think I have enough resin scrap to make a whole extra unit.

Last week 1k pts worth of these tiny undead hit the table for a playtest. Mostly skeletons & zombies + necromancer. The intent was to get some xp with thier magic.
It was a close fought game with the elves just barely winning.

2) I'm about 3 models shy of finishing building a Marauder/Darkoath themed Slaves to Darkness force. Lots of Msrauder foot, several horse units, + some chariots.
This week was thier initial outing. 2k vs orks & a solid victory.
A pair of things were made abundantly clear in this game.
First- I'm going to have to have some movement trays. Moving 80 guys on foot (4 units) is a PITA.
Second - bases must be color coded by unit for those foot guys. I had a heck of a time keeping them from getting mixed up when fighting near one another.
And as I've got mixes of ax & flail in each, the fails will need to be further color coded. So "green squad" will have green base lips with dark green for the flails, red/dark red, etc. I want to tell at a glance how many fails I've got in a unit.

Both of these forces need primed/base coated. Especially the undead.
All I need is about 2 hours on a nice day....
So far I've had time but poor weather, or nice weather + busy as ***.
And within the next 2.5 weeks I've got to get at least 500 pts of the undead painted.

I think they FAQ'd our units to not be able to mix loadouts so that particular color coding step might not be needed.

Slowly tipping away at my beastmen force. My productivity painting wise has fallen through the floor due to my job at the moment. But I'm painting up some Nolzur's Aarakroca and Harpies as "bird folk" harpies in a unit of ten, and I also have a Deep Cuts big minotaur (the Labyrinth Guardian) that I'm gonna do as a Doombull. Then it's just the Gnolls, chaos hounds and centaurs to finish.

As a break from all that brown and grey I also painted up some Tzeentch daemons, but I realised one of my screamers is missing a tail so I stopped while I make a new one for it.

Well that's inconvenient for StD players overall. There are reasons to include mixed weapons in units.

On the personal lv that FAQ change won't affect anything.
1) The force was actually built for more narrative purposes. It's meant for an upcoming scenario/event in our D&D game. I've found that it's easier to run mass battles using miniature wargame rules (with some custom rules to represent the PC party) than run things all with D&D rules. And Sigmar is a nice simple system that the non-wargamers in the group can grok.
I blocked out the forces using the Sigmar pts/unit sizes for convenience, but in the actual game the Marauders will be running about in many individual random groups of between 1 -? as they raid the town.

2) The people I play Sigmar with A) don't know StD or their FAQ at all. And wouldn't care if units have mixed weapons if they did.
They'd read the Tome, they'd read the FaQ, and say something along the lines of "That's stupid, it's supposed to be a chaotic hoard of barbarians waving mixed weapons."
So the color coding is still needed.

3) In the unlikely event that I ever used them in some more formal setting or vs someone anal about it? I'll just sticky tack spare weapons to the back of x models to create legal units. Nothing says the model must be posed wielding the weapon. Or can't be carrying around excess stuff they can't use.
Though truthfully for the price of 1 Marauder unit I'm sure there's something more effective.

They made the hand weapon the strictly better option anyways.

Not relevant to me considering the reason I built the force in the 1st place.
It also functioning as an actual AoS army is just a bonus.
As for how I decided wich weapons to arm my foot & horse squad models with? I rolled a d6 for each individual.
So there's a mix of ax/shield & flail in each unit and a mix of ax/flail/javelin in each horse squad.
Clearly I'm not building for max efficiency. (If I were I'd not be building StD Marauders

I really need to get a different camera. The quality is nice, but the focus/blurring is so damn aggressive it makes it impossible to get good group shots, or looks at big/long models. Ugh.

I started my Nurgle Army in January, I always wanted a Great Unclean One and with a bit of time on my hands decided to get stuck in. I really enjoy painting Nurgly goodness;

Made up of A GUO (magnetised), Nurgle Daemons and Maggotkin Starter sets, Gnarlmaw, Chaos Knights, Lord of Plagues and a Chaos Sorcerer I've since added 10 more Blightkings and Gutrot Spume (unpainted just now, next to do).

I painted every model one at a time which is a bit of a departure for me. I'm so used to batch painting orks I forgot how much fun it is to just spend a bit of time on each sculpt. These were an absolute treat to do



This is my favourite shot of the GUO, he looks so disturbingly threatening from this angle.



What an awesome sculpt Rotigus is.



I like to get my money's worth from every set and magnetise all my large models to give options and variety. Not so keen on this head though.





10 more Blightkings to add to the army. I was careful to ensure every sculpt was as different as possible. Absolutely loved painting these.



Finished Gutrot Spume last night. Sadly that's it for my Nurgle army for the moment, I'd like to play it first before buying some more models.

Love that Nurgle, always good to see more painted GUOs about!

And dam that grey on Teclis really transforms the model in an interesting way.

Thanks. I liked the look of the white blue and gold as the main colors on the lumineth box art. But felt like stacking on more light colours, like the pale blues, pale yellow/tans seen on the box art was a bit weird. Sure, they're elves from the realm of light, doesn't mean they shouldn't have some dark colors to make the bright ones show up better.
