Captain Tripps's face looks good; one thing I really like is that when I look at him, the alternate colors and face and wings and scythe all make him not scream "NIGHTBRINGER!" to me.

Abaddon looks excellent. Your icon bearer looks nice, but a bit of the paint smeared on his standard. One suggestion that might be cool is modeling some decayed matter out of green stuff onto the standard, to make it look more disgusting and Nurgly.

My favorite paint? The glowing eyes on that random plague marine. It really does look good.

P.S. Thanks for the Necron shield.

You my friend can work very well with green stuff and paint. i think your a champ good work and keep it up.

I have a reputation, Modile, a reputation as a fair, honest man who treats his soldiers well and supports them in the face of darkness. Potentially, that reputation makes me soft. It seems I understand failure and forgive it. Some, like Kowle, believe me to be a weak commissar, not prepared to take the action my rank demands. Not prepared to enforce field discipline where I see it failing. I am an Imperial commissar. I will enflame the weak, support the wavering, guide the lost. I will be all things to all men who need me. But I will also punish without hesitation the weak, the incompetent, and the treasonous.
I am a Commissar. I am empowered to deliver justice wherever I see it lacking. I am empowered to punish cowardice. I am granted the gift of total authority to judge, in the name of the Emperor, on the field of combat.

I don't even want to think about that, to be honest.

Also, While I don't have any pics at the moment, I have decided to paint the defiler in Alpha Legion colors. Why? Because they are everywhere.

Man, I really need to start updating this more frequently.

Well, I can say with confidence that I am very nearly done with making the Knights of Entropy into a decent 1500 point army. I have all the parts for everything except the chaos lord, which will take a little while. The torso and head that I need are in the mail, and then I still have to make a Palanquin of Nurgle for him to ride, and a seperate base for when I don't want him mounted.

There have been some changes in the army. They now have a more uniform paint scheme. P3 traitor green for most stuff, and then their heads and pauldrons indicate the god they worship. Each unit type has a different color of armor trim. CSM and Plague Marines have bone, Terminators have Gold, Havocs have bronze, and the raptors will either have silver or scorpion green.

Pics coming later today, I have some stuff to do that will take a little while.

I know that the lighting in these pictures is terrible. I was trying out a different setup, because I didn't really want to clear off my desk to take pictures. But I'm going to get some better pictures taken, hopefully tonight.


Here's the Forgeworld Plague Champion, you can see how the paint scheme has changed over time.









Here's my WIP Kharn conversion


And here's a bunch of other stuff.

Abbadon, now with a drybrush of silver on the armor, to make it look more like armor.


The champion for my Havoc Squad. I need to redo the silver, change it to bronze.

In your head, screwing with your thoughts...

Dude your Captain Tripp looks... badass. In the extreme. That mask especially is just perfect. I agree, I don't think anyone's 1st thought upon seeing it would be "TeH NIGHTBRINGERz!!!!1!!1101!" Also where are his wings from, and what did you do to the mask? It looks like you did something to it other than painting it. I dunno, it could be the lighting.

And in an earlier wip picture of it... Was that f***ing BLOOD on his robe and on the table?? Because it looked like blood to me. If so, that would explain how he turned out so badass.

No, all the FW thing comes with is the torsos and pauldrons. The PF is from the terminator sprue, since there's little to no size difference between Marine powerfists and Terminator Powerfists

I did nothing to the mask, and the wings are the Dragon Wings. GW sells them in the Warhammer (fantasy) section. Just go to bits, and there's a whole section for wings.

I think I know which WIP pic you're thinking of, and no. my blood has never come in contact with any of my models. It's just red paint on the table, and some brown paint on Captain Tripps.


I've decided to abandon the Lash Prince idea for now. I really don't need it, except if I want an army that will dominate on the tabletop, and I'm trying to make mine centered around some rather vague fluff, instead of "what is the absolute best stuff to win with". I'm mainly focusing on the Plague Rhino right now, waiting for some bits to come from the internet, and some Brownstuff that I ordered a week or so ago.

After I'm done with the Knights of Entropy, I'll probably start another CSM army. I'm trying to decide between Alpha Legion and Iron Warriors. Either way, at least I won't need to worry about finding a good color scheme. I'm also planning on getting a bunch of CSM, and painting one for each legion/warband/whatever that GW has given a paint scheme for. Should be fun.

As for the Palanquin Of Nurgle that I'm making for the Lord...anyone have ideas for that? I know it's supposed to be carried by Nurglings, but I don't feel like buying any. So far, my ideas have been to convert 4 of the AoBR orks into plaguebearers and make them carry it, or make a bunch of maggots out of GS and put them on the bottom. Anyone have any other ideas? Or you can just tell me which one you like best.

Update for those who might actually read this:
I've been working on a sculpture project for something I'm going to at the end of July, so my 40k work has slowed a bit. Nevertheless, I have managed to start work on a Nurgle Dreadnought, converted from the Plastic Venerable Dread kit. I'm about 1/2 to 3/4 done with the conversion work, and then the painting will begin. Once that's done, I still have to fininsh painting the rest of the bloody army, since most of the stuff is about half finished at best. The Nurgle Lord is being painted as we speak, and I will probably just put him on a dreadnought sized base with a horse from the Chaos Knights set, rather than bother with the Palanquin. Then, I'm probabaly going to make at least 2 more daemon princes, one with the old metal one, since I want to get one before they go oop, and one with the new plastic DP. Possibly the metal nurgle prince too, although I don't think I will. I kind of want to model one that's really thin and ancient looking, a sort of wasted 'father time' thing to be the Warptime prince. I'll try to get some pics of my sketches up in a day or two.

DP looks ace !

Everything looks great. I think you have more special characters and elites than troops though...Unless I'm missing something. Can we have a big group shot?

Btw: Dakka's giving me the 3 month warning, but this is in your signature, so I guess it's okay

Yeah, I probably do have more HQ than troops. I'm working on that though. Or I would be if I didn't have all these ideas for Daemon Princes. I have the new plastic one, a river troll which will become another Nurgle DP, and a vague idea for a Tzneetch DP. Pics will come after I have some lunch, hopefully.
