Hi guys, this thread is to run alongside my White Scars Task force WIP as a mix up to both keep my interest in the scars and also get this heavily converted army up and running rather than sitting in a box waiting for some love.

I have bought most of the list below and have started to build some of it already. Nothing has any paint on it yet and I am still working in a colour scheme that will be simple yet also one I am happy with.

It's very much a nurgle only army with probably some Death Gaurd in there so that I can use them in 30k if I go down that route.

Similar to my Scars blog I have put a poll on here for you to vote on what to build next and I will build as I am painting the scars so it keeps me happy. I have started off with a few WIP photos that will give you an idea of where I am going. http://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-81825-38457_Nurgle%20CSM.html

The Forgefiend may have nurglings coming out of the front of the sac yet or I'll just green stuff it up.

The reaver has got lots more green stuff to go including having some spawn travelling round his body. The mourngul coming out of the crotch was something I am particularly proud of, it just fits well.

This is what I have at some stage or other

Reaver Titan
Typhon & Typhus
Grave wardens and Death Shroud
Winged DP
Mammon
Great Unclean One
20 Plague Bearers
28 Plague Marines
3 Heldrakes (1 on will be on a building like Megatron in the first Transformers movie, 1 on a Valkyrie like in the codex and not sure about other)
2 Forgefiends
3 Blight Drones
4 Rhinos
3 Vindicators
3 Deimos Predators
Warp smith, Dark Apostle and Lord
105 Zombies
3 obliterators and 3 mutilators

Still got to get a Warhound too

Loads more to come and all C&C is welcome as are suggestions, hints and tips.

Thanks guys...

That converted Fiend is looking good, I look forward to this one progressing. Also, I can't wait to see the Drake vs Valk if it's anything like the codex art.

So Nurgle fans........

I have had my fill of Scars this week and fancy a break.

This weekend will see me assemble at least one Heldrake (prbably the one gripping the tower) and I will endeavor to take photos of the rest of what have so far (although a lot of it is standard build at the moment).

Wondering whether the drakes would look good in a battered rusted pre heresey Death Gaurd colour?? What are your thoughts people?

Death Guard is white/cream with green right? How would you break up the drake? Do all the raised bits in a rusted metal, with the recessed bits mostly white, with green as an accent color somewhere? As a color palette I think it would work, the hard part is figuring out what goes where.

I might do one of the two “shoulders” layers over the wings green. Either the top on or the middle, not both. For the wings two options stand out. Either just do the middle or rear wing green, or mask off some/all of the wingtips and do them green. Or stripes.

Of course the best way to paint heldrakes is with AA fire, and then use them to paint the landscape. You filthy heretic.

Nev, you make me chuckle.

I was thinking of doing a green toxic gas/flame on wings and DG on the body and head. Going to clip and petrify the wings loads aswell. Will make more sense after I put a picture up I hope.

I'd love to do more! How ever, i'm restricted by a few things:
-distance (I dont drive). A few people I met at Storm of Iron said they'd be happy to de-tour to pick me up for any future events, providing it's not ridiculously out of their way. They're from nottingham, so it's basically anything in the south they'll be able to give me a ride to.
-university. March is going to be rammed with work (5 courseworks and 4 weeks to do it). Not to mention may/june when end of year exams start.

I've not really shopped around for up coming tournaments, but if there is one worth doing over easter, i'm down.

I guess the points still stand. Are there any in april? I'd definately be up for going to a whw tourney (never been there before!)

I'll have to think about that one.

I'd need to be back at uni for a 9am lecture on the monday after. And I dont even want to think about how much GW will charge for the event...

£100 for the ticket for 2 people, so £50 each, isnt bad.

I fancied it because I havent been to a tournament of any sort before, so I was hoping to get my friend emissary1701 to come along for the ride.

But bills and a broken car have thwarted any plans that I had.

Cheers mate, hope the problems are notr that bad. 40k world problems like rifts in the imaterium seem simple compared to REAL life sometimes.

Started on Heldrake number 1 last night then realised that I had made a schoolboy error and not charged my dremel. There is something both satisfying and scary about chopping and scarring a model (more scary on an expensive titan) but will put some pics up this evening or tomorrow. Built some zombie bodies too but will put heads and arm to them over the next few days.

Got a real sense of enjoyment (sorry Nev) being back on the 'dark side' last night and am looking forward to some progress. May even throw some effort into the titan soon too, although my Thunderhawk on the white scar blog needs to be finished first I think!

The big problem is stopping myself buying a couple of Knights. Wouldn't use them in game but like the models and have some nice conversion ideas.

Dude, lovely model but as I go to GW tourneys and they won't allow any non GW product (not even sheilds) I could'nt use it.

Do the Nurgle army mate. Loads of fun!!!

I don’t blame you at all. While I love the loyalist side, we do tend to be straightjacketed into doing things the right and proper way. The evil side gets to have all the fun on the modeling bench. While I’m doing a simple head swap, or kit-bashing a combi weapon, you get to replace some guys leg with a mass of tentacles and graft a bolt pistol onto his head. Every time I see a chaos or ork kit, I feel the pull the pull of plasticard and greenstuff; the potential to embrace the change and kitbash something fun and unique.

And then I shrug off those dark whispers. Unlike you, you weak-willed heretic. When I’m basking in the Emperor’s light after a lifetime of service, your soul will be the plaything of your dark gods. So enjoy your fun now.

(Back when I was still working on both 40k and fantasy armies, my undead and warriors of chaos let me scratch the modeling itch. Evil in fantasy, good in 40k)

But how can I compete with the size/scale of your nurgly goodness?

And that really sucks about using GW models... That model is awesome, and it's a real shame you cant use it.

You should never need to compete with my army mate, although I thank you for the comment and just remember that it was YOUR army that me me join this site and has forced me to take my hobby to the next level.

Here is a quick shot of my crate of nurgleness to be built and painted.

As signature suggests I have approx 10k of points so will not be a quick build and blog. Those of you who have visited my White Scars blog will know that whilst I can acheive quick resluts it gets me down so I am going to take my time. They are not earmarked for any tournament (yet) and are more about the conversion than the playability.

I can see a Nurgle one happening and also a Slaanesh. Just can't use them with chaos. Need to check on the ally rules for them to see if there is a way. If not it would have to count as a lord of skulls.

.........rumour on the street! is that Forge world will be doing some extra stuff for these guys? and that includes Chaos!...now if there going to do that? I'm sure there will be rules for it's use?
so I live in hope! plus, I think the Knights will be big sellers....so I don't think GW/FW will miss a trick with this one? and has you say it will be nice to model one even if you don't play it?........Hmmmmmm? a Nurgle one (of course!) opens up so many possibility's!..........
