It's time for Kronos's big unveiling. Not bad for less than a month's work. Please let me know what you think.

I'll soon be posting the next project with a breakdown of what I have left to paint, which is actually increasing rather than decreasing.
The death guard release was just the inspiration I needed to reinvigorate my interest, even though I still doubt I'll be playing any games.

Some nice stuff here. Sure it's more flavoured of pus and pestilence than years and pleadyre, but I'm not adverse to a bit of multi-culturalism

Great conversions, that old rhino is excellent, perfect example of corrupted splendour. But you definitely had me at the help-squid - I do like me some tentacles in my chaos.

Nice work with Kronos too, big fella looks ace.

I like your overall take on a more vibrant, almost gaudy, scheme for Nurgle, really nice.

Much gratitude for the exaltation monkeytroll.
I've got a lot more to paint, but the rest will be a bit light on conversions. I believe the only conversions I have left on the drawing board are 9 more Cold One Riders/Bikers, 5 Spawn, 7 raptors (which are just using wings), and technically I have the parts for a second Hellsquid if I ever get around to it.

With that in mind here is a complete list of everything I have left to do.
Death Guard

Mortarion
Plaguecaster
Lord of Contagion
Noxious Blightbringer
7 new Plague Marines
4 old Plague Marines
20 Cultists/Traitor Guard
10 Poxwalkers
2 Rhinos
Foul Blightspawn
2 Blight Drones
5 Chaos Spawn
Myphitic Blighthauler
Spartan Assault Tank
Decimator

Chaos Marines
7 Raptors
9 Cold One Riders/Bikers
7 Havocs
3 Off-brand Obliterators

Daemons

Great Unclean One
Daemon Prince
Herald of Nurgle
16 Plaguebearers
4 Nurgling bases
3 Plague Drones

Other

Plague Angel
Possessed Dragon
Spider Daemon
Pincer Daemon
Warrior Daemon
Vulture Daemon
Zombie Dragon
Tree Walker

That totals 118 models, so it's best to think one step at a time. The present step begins with Mortarion, or more specifically waiting once again on even more paint. I'll be building and painting in stages, which means there won't be much to show until he's nearly done. After that it's the Great Unclean One, then I may actually do the Plague Angel. Let's see how much pestilent goodness I can accomplish in two months before school starts again.

While I wait for paints I started to work on my five spawns. You'll have to forgive the lack of proper bases, but I have the necessary 50mm ones ordered off ebay.
I still have more to add to them, but this is the basic makeup. I'll have to get more green stuff soon though.

Thanks inmygravenimage, I had to replace a couple whose parts went missing.

My paints are in but I did these 5 Plaguebearers and Herald while I waited. The one conversion is the musician. It's my attempt at bagpipes.
However the remaining plaguebearers, spawn, and Mortarion are all being pushed aside for some even more new models. First is the Glutton Daemon and eventually will be the Lord of Virulence, and Lady of Anguish.

He's about the same size as the current Great Unclean One, but he's going on a slightly smaller 100mm base. I already have his 2 heads magnetized, although I think the alternate looks a bit goofy. I've got him undercoated and intend to start tomorrow.

As you can see I still have work to do on the arms of the Glutton Daemon, but I couldn't resist showing him off so far. I've named him Balthazar after a daemon that showed up on an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He was so fat he was physically unable to get out of his giant tub. His feet didn't line up right with the slots on the rock base, but it seems solid enough with some putty put in the gaps.

Thanks again inmygravenimage, I'm grateful for your continued support.
Even though his girth makes him the most expensive model available from Creature Caster, he is still cheaper than the gw GUO. You can equip him with a sort of bone mace, but I couldn't pass up this intestine grappling hook thing.

I was also proud to notice that since the last post my plog was featured on the site's homepage, which I never really expected to happen.

So without further ado, here's Balthazar pretty much finished other than to clean up some putty at the joints, a matt varnish, and a bit of gloss. He towers over the old metal GUO I have done.
I should do the alternate head first, but I'm thinking of attempting the Lady of Anguish next. I find female models to be a bit of a challenge though, and she is definitely on the smaller side compared to the other models in the line.

Thank you both. He's also heavy enough that I had concerns whether my glass cabinet would support him, and I love your inquisitor plague marine btw insaniak.

I only have the wings left on the Lady of Anguish, but I decided to post ahead of time since they'll be rather fiddly to finish. She's about 5" tall without the wings and her alternate weapon is a pair of punch daggers.
I've named her Freya like the Norse goddess. I'm a big fan of the new God of War plus she represents love and fertility.

Afterwards I should go back and do Mortarion, but with summer soon coming to a close I've decided to try one of the two non-chaos themed models I own, the Creature Caster Zombie Dragon.

Thanks a lot monkeytroll, always nice to hear from you.

Here is the finished Lady of Anguish, although I can see now I missed a spot on one of the wings. With her wings she stands just over 6". I'll try and get a comparison shot for all the big models moving forward.
The zombie dragon is going to be another big project, so it might be a while til the next post. Since I have the kickstarter version it comes with a back plug to make him riderless.
I would have gotten a vampire lord just to complete him, but I don't know what legs would properly fit the saddle option, and the included howdah doesn't include a bottom. If I went with the howdah there would be a glaring square hole in his back.

Thanks a lot for your interest Bash the Bosh. It's always nice to come back to see more positive feedback.
To answer your question I've abandoned the Zombie dragon for now. I realized I was never going to finish it before school starts, and I was worried if I continued with the dark grey color scheme I had planned he might just blend in to his rocky base.

So I switched to a smaller project, my Foul Blightspawn. I would have gotten him done a while ago, but I've been distracted watching the complete Sons of Anarchy marathon.
I still have to put ardcoat on the tank window, but I was leaving it until after the matte varnish since I've read they can cancel each other out.

I've since gotten a Biologus Putrifier and Sloppity Bilepiper to add to the list in order to get free shipping on some Nurgling green (my local store is an hour and a half away). So I'll try and get some work done on the latter. I wasn't pleased with how light my Plaguebearers turned out so I'll be starting with a black undercoat rather than white this time, and the same scheme as my Glutton Daemon.

Thanks again monkeytroll and inmygravenimage. It's so lovely to have regulars on my plog.
I was trying to emulate the tank from a youtube video by the Brush and Boltgun.

Unfortunately this update could be the last for quite a while as I'm now in the thick of school work, but on the off chance I do finish anything I'll be sure to post it up.
So here is my Sloppity Bilepiper who has been dubbed McIntyre. I nearly lost his accompanying Nurgling disposing of a pile of paint chips on my desk, but thankfully I didn't have to replace him.

Happy painting to you all, and Papa Nurgle bless.

Thanks inmygravenimage for yet another compliment. I always appreciate the feedback.

Well I'm back with some progress. I managed to finally finish Mortarion over my Christmas break, although I had started him quite a while ago.
He's a bit of a departure from my normal paint scheme, but I decided to focus on drybrushing the armor since there is already a fair amount of line work on the wings. I would have completed him earlier, but I had to fight off a bugger of a cold that took up most of my holidays. I still have to add the snow to the base, but I'll do that after the varnish. I ended up leaving off the smoke from his back because I was sick of trying to get it to stay in place while the glue dried. It was bad enough that one of the wings took an entire day to set, and, even though it's an exquisite model, I'm eager to move on to a different project by now.

Speaking of which as if my backlog wasn't big enough already I was lured in by some black Friday sales so I got a few more Creature Caster models, a bunch of Lust Elves from Raging Heroes, the new Noise Marine, two battleforces, and the Wrath and Rapture box. Some of this is straying from my devotion to Papa Nurgle, but I'll probably still post it in here rather than make a whole new thread. I have some of it assembled, but since school starts back up again tomorrow I don't know how much I'll be able to accomplish before summer rolls back around.

What a pleasant surprise to return to a wave of positivity. I'm glad you all like my version of Morty. I'm also a big Rick and Morty fan, so I enjoy your use of the moniker inmygravenimage. I look forward to the day you finish yours. The red looks cool too.

Welcome to my putrid little corner of the web amazingturtles. I wasn't sure the blue was going to work out at first, but I also plan on doing a similar scheme for my Plague Drones. The green on the lower portion I borrowed from miniwargaming.

And thanks monkeytroll, I love those hauler crawlers you're working on btw.

In other news I just finished this limited edition Creature Caster model of the festive daemon Krampus. He's only a bust mind you, but he stands about 3.5 inches tall. There's a bit of a gap to be filled in one of the joins of the horns and I had to place him on a base to keep him from keeling over, but he went pretty smoothly. It's not often I can finish a project in just over a week.

I've also started on my first Lust Elf who is riding a daemon steed, but I haven't quite settled on the colors yet.

So I was working on my Plague Angel, but got the urge to work on something smaller for a change of pace. That something is my first Lust Elf, a Medusa.
I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures, but these are with the flash set to automatic which never seems to be able to focus properly that way. Normally I have the manual flash on all the time, but in this case it really highlighted the areas where the Fang spray was in the deep recesses. When viewing it in person it's not very noticeable, but on camera it makes me regret ever buying that color of spray. It provides a good base for color, but getting rid of the recesses is next to impossible.

I'm happy to be beginning my summer break once again since I was too busy to finish anything during the semester. I did get my Plague Angel about one third done, but I didn't have the motivation to complete him yet.
Instead I did my favorite part of the Shadowspear box, the Venomcrawler. I haven't done a mostly black model since my vindicator, but I didn't think my normal green color scheme would make sense for a spider. There's not really anything special about him, but hopefully it's gotten the ball rolling for more relatively soon.

I'm back again with a bit more progress. Here is my first of the Nightmare Hulks, although I won't be painting the others for a while. He's not actually as bright as he appears in the pictures, but things get too obscured without the flash on full. I've since made a few small corrections. I'm not sure what I'll be working on next, but I have a lot to choose from.
