@Youwashock, I do think he likes his drink, probabably a good strong ale by the looks of him . The older model may be a bit more nurgly looking but when the new one is on the table it looks the part when surrounded by the pox walkers. Thanks for the comment on the blade and osl, this is the first time I have really tried OSL and did not want to overdo it.

@Gitz thank you.

@Cam Thanks, have to admit I used mostly the GW palette for color choices as I do for the majority of my figs.

Lot of detail in that Typhus piece- lot of patience. Even with a 'standard' color palette, it takes a careful hand and some skill to apply color in such a way that it flows together- as Cam said, it glows. Nicely done!

@meercat, thank you
@ Graven, thanks could not find a suitable stein :-), will have to go with his big fish hook.

So here he is finished, I thought about adding some rust or corrosion but just couldn’t do it. Perhaps later..

Typhus looks ace, York! I really like how the smoke and flies turned out especially. I recently picked up and assembled my own Typhus model, so it's good to have a little inspiration.

Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1100 | Space Wolves: ~2000

Thank you guys, sorry about not posting lately have had some personal issues. Local FLGS is running a escalation campaign, 500 the first week increasing by 500 till we reach 2k. My list was Typhus, 20 poxwalkers, 5 DG, and a noxious blightbringer.
Had 2 games, one vs orcs where my dice rolls were abysmal. The second vs a pretty optimized tyranid list. Lost both games, learned a few more things about my army. Need more guns, and not to sit back waiting for my opponent.
A few pictures of my games.

And some nice pics, looks like the quailty of painting is pretty high where you play, especially on those classic orks...

Thank you guys for the concern, life is getting back to normal and I have picked up the brushs again. My very understanding wife says I have been a bit too moody lately and is encouraging me to get out a bit more and game with my friends. Happy to report I told her yes I could manage that.

@Commissar Khaine, those Orcs were painted by a friend I have known for... well lets just say decades. He says they are not very good but I have told him that is not true he has done some amazing work.

Will post some stuff soon. Thanks again!

@CK thanks buddy they definitely will need some grunge.

Played a fun game on Wednesday night thought I would post up a few shots. It was very close but I never mind losing to someone with a well painted army.

@ Cam and CK , totally agree the game is so much better when you set down and your opponent has a painted army. Luckily most of my opponents at the FLGS make the effort to paint.

Getting close to finishing this unit. A few washes then some grunge. CC always welcome and thanks for or looking.
