The deathwatch ultramarine looks splendid with the edge highlights like that, almost like true Ultramarine colors shining through the armor paintjob .

The Celestial Lions are looking positively awesome. Some of the best chapters are ones with so little cannon written about them.

The poxwalkers scheme is simple and effective, I like 'em.
Calsius is looking cool, the alternative grey makes the black quite cold. For his left arm have you washed the silver in blue?

@Theophony: I am quite fond of the Lt as well, am really pleased with the miniature. Agreed on the lore of the Celestial Lions, I can make it up as I go along.

@Tyranid Horde: Yes, all of my DW have a blue wash on their silver arm and pad as I like the cold steel look.

@Commander Cain: Thank you Sir, not as good or interesting as your armies but I try.

Have gotten my second delivery complete with the issue 6 Plague Marines now painted, here they are:

Champion with plague knife, powerfist and plasma gun on his backpack. Power fist and knife are from the multi part PM kit and the head is from the Deathshroud kit:



I converted the Blight Launcher marine to a standard bolter guy, arm and head from the multi part PM kit:



The simplest was a mere head swap, courtesy of the Blightlord Terminator kit:




And a group shot:



And here is my Conquest unit of 6 from issues 2 and 6:



I am now probably two weeks away from my delivery of issues 7-10 (Primaris Librarian, 2 shade pots, 6 more poxwalkers and a myphitic blight hauler) so I am at a bit of a loss as to what to paint from my pile whilst I wait. I am probably going to try and paint the 2 Myphitic Blight Haulers I already have and maybe a Helbrute. Maybe even Ekene Dubaku. Any preferences from the blog readers out there? Thanks for looking.

A little converting goes a long way, great job on the Plague Marines.
Can never go wrong with more nurgle so why not go for what you were planning?

Very nice! Only suggestion: I'd water down the "verdigris effect"-colour a little bit, so it doesn't stand out that much and appears a bit more natural. Just nitpicking, though, nice paintjob!

As it was I decided on painting the two Myphitic Blight Haulers that I have to paint, I aim to get them done by some point over the weekend so hopefully there will be a progress update soon.

@Commander Cain: One of my fears by subscribing was that I would just be adding to the pile, but the every 4 week delivery is proving a great motivational factor to get things done. As for the bases I always go pretty basic, I marvel at the work and time that others spend on basing. I just cannot see myself picking my game up that much.

@Tyranid Horde: Nurgle it is!

@LordMcAllister: Fair criticism on the verdigris, I was looking at the pictures and thought that it was a bit much so will revisit it and minimise it over the weekend. I was lazy and just slopped some Nikilakakakak Oxide on it.

And remember, the flesh is weak:



I plan to sell the GSC half and probably the Space Wolf pack leader, that leaves me with a Redemptor Dreadnought, unit of Aggressors and another 5 Intercessors. Looking at the sprue for the Intercessors the extra bits will be extremely useful in converting my as yet unbuilt Conquest issue 1 Intercessors, so there is plenty of scope there.

Thanks for looking!

Before you go selling off the gs cult part you may want to look and see if any of the bits would make good conversion fodder to add to your Nurgle army. The models are quite easy to chop up and change, combined with some poxwalkers and renegade militia (which I believe come in the conquest magazines) you could net yourself some great looking mutated infantry

@Commander Cain: Good call on the conversion parts, but I have already made a GSC army so have a good few conversion parts in my bits box (with the exception of the new Aberrant bits). But you have definitely got me thinking on converting the cultists that will arrive at some point.

When the Myphitic Blight Haulers first came out I think a lot of DG players slept on how useful they could be. They are armed with a Missile launcher, Multi melta and Bile Spurt (12" range, assault d3 strength 6 , -1 ap Plague weapon). Add to that 3 close combat attacks at ws 4, -2 ap, also a plague weapon so re-rolling 1's. Have a unit of 3 of them and you add 1 to all hit rolls because of the Tri-Lobe rule, effectively making them bs 3+. They have a Daemonic +5 Invulnerable save, are toughness 7 with 8 wounds and also a base 3+ save with the bonus of Disgustingly Resilient. They do not suffer the penalty for moving and firing with heavy weapons and have a move of 10" giving an effective range of "58 with the missile launcher or "34 with the multi melta. They are also a moving cover platform for infantry with all infantry that are entirely within "7 of a hauler gaining the benefit of cover when making armour saves. Phew.

A unit of 3 is in excess of 400pts, so they are not cheap, but I think they offer some great anti armour (or horde) for the DG and a unit of 3 takes up just one fast attack slot. Anyway I got my other two done, here they are:






Here they are with my first painted one to create the Tri-lobe (note that the red portion in the Nurgle symbol indicates their position in the tri lobe)







Until next time.

I think you're missing one of the other key selling point of the Blight Hauler - they're one of the few GW kits that are reasonably priced! You can pick a trio of them up for about the same cost as one crawler and that adds 400+pts to your army.

Three Crawlers is probably a more optimal choice and costs a similar number of points, but it is three times as expensive.

Too true, I do love the Plagueburst Crawlers though, such a great kit. And whenever they are delivered with Conquest I will have my third. There was a DG list that ran 10 of them at tournaments to great success.

Am halfway through constructing my Tooth and Claw Primaris, must say that I am very impressed with the intercessor kit, so many bits!

You're really knocking it out with the nurgle stuff at the moment.

Those blight haulers sound nasty to go up against. The fleshy pink mouth parts make a nice counter point to the greens and brasses of the rest of the model.
The plague marines have quite a range of colours on them, yet don't suffer from it. The grossly lurid yellow boils make really nice spot colours.

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated. In terms of progress my next delivery of Conquest is not due until at least late next week so I have been playing around with a few things.

Firstly I bought some Micro Sol and Micro Sel for transfers, here is a test on my Intercessor Sgt. Basically I used Micro Sol and Sel as advised (I forget which is which) and then used some Lahmian Medium to take the shine off the transfer. Ultimately I am very happy with the result, the product really helps the transfer to conform the curved surface and the medium removed the shine. So a vast tranfer-a-thon may be in order as well as an order to chapter customiser (s not z damn you!).



Your thoughts?

I have also gotten my Tooth and Claw Primaris made up, and started with the Redemptor Dreadnought. Here is a very early WIP, obviously the gold needs a lot of work, but I love this miniature:



Finally I visited my local GW this morning to purchase the 500th Store Anniversary Lieutenant :







So onwards and upwards with the Redemptor today.

Thanks for looking.

That transfer went on really well. I've been pondering an order from chapter customiser myself, but the shipping is insane for a single transfer sheet. Would you be interested in doing a combined order to split the cost?

Gah, would have loved to split an order but I already placed it yesterday prior to you post. Agreed that $13 shipping for a single transfer sheet is extortionate, but it seems that is the way that global shipping has gone.

As it is I powered on and got my Redemptor Dreadnought done, just waiting on my Celestial Lion transfers to truly finish him off now. But it is nice to add a heavy hitter to my Celestial Lions:











Apologies for some of the lighting in the photos, it is a weirdly mixed sunny and overcast sky here today. I plan to either paint the special edition Lieutenant or Aggressors today.

Awesome! Very nice looking gold. The only thing I would be tempted to change is the blue aquilla, I think it might look better if it were silver to match the rest of the army. Keep up the good work

Just catching up, the blight haulers are looking sweet, I've yet to play against them but they sound nasty!

I have however, gone up against a few of those dreadnoughts in small points games and that not assault cannon is a real menace if you can't bracket it early. Great job on the model, and the transfers do add a lot to the models.

@PGMason: the potential output of the gatling cannons and frag launchers is a bit daft.

@Commander Cain: I think I will revisit the aquilla, originally it was blue because only the shoulder pauldrons had the blue. I then added the blue to the knee pads as it was all a bit too gold.

@Youwasshock: And a mighty fine mini it is.

@TyranidHorde: yup, the combined 18 shots of just the two galing cannons (heavy onslaught and onslaught) is a lot, throw in 2 d6 frag launchers and the d3 Icarus launcher and it all gets a bit potential overkill.

As it is I have completed the 500th store lieutenant, am generally happy with him but the eyes were a distinct pain. I am in that "do I, don't I?" mode as I think revisiting it may make them worse. We shall see. Anyway, here he is:









Not really sure how useful he is being armed with the heavy 1 master crafted stalker bolt rifle but who knows? Rule of cool prevails. And I guess Lieutenants are there to buff other units rather than expecting much of them in their own right. I also have to think up of a name for him, I will be researching African heritage names later tonight.

Conquest wise my latest delivery has been processed so I hope to see it by the end of the week. Really looking forward to working on the Librarian (or Spiritwalker as they are called in the Celestial Lions).

Thanks for looking.

While the primaris marine style has grown on me, the look of the redemptor still is off putting to me, but your paint job is exceptional. Can’t wait to see them with the transfers added.

The blight haulers are neat little models, not sure if I like the style (again the sculpt, not your work) or not, but they are definitely different.

The Redemptor is definitely a divisive model, personally I love it and this is my third as my Deathwatch already have two.

I got more Tooth and Claw Progress having completed the Aggressors. Originally I was not sure if I like the miniatures but after having built and painted them my opinion has really turned. They are suitably chunky but with lots of nice details. Even better news is that issue 11 of Conquest will come with the 3 Easy To Build flamer Aggressors. Here they are:













It is nice to have added another unit to the army, it is beginning to feel more like an army now moreso than just a couple of units. I reckon I have about 700 odd points painted up, so what is next? These boys:

@Theo: I tend to use it as a go to power cable colour as I tend to not use green elswhere other than laurels and lenses.

@Youwasshock:

Why not? The only unit not game legal here is the three man Reiver unit:




Not even 20 models strong yet, but the addition of the Librarian with the new delivery will change that. You may also notice that the Intercessors now have their tactical/ battleline markings, just waiting for my lion transfers to arrive next. As suggested by Commander Cain I changed the Aquila on the Redemptor to silver to match the rest of the army:



And finally some more to add to the pile, today was delivery day!

Your army is really shaping up well! Actually quite interesting to see you got the big pots of shade instead of their small bottles, I would have expected that. What'll be first on the bench?

@Youwasshock: I have no idea how I am going to paint the Librarian, I am thinking of going non codex and repeating the gold armour, blue pauldrons and helmet and red robes. We shall see.

@Tyranid Horde: I think the small shade pots are discontinued now, not totally sure though. Issue 7 is great on two fronts, the shades are always useful and it means nothing to paint. I think I will be starting with the Librarian.

Here are issues 8-10 constructed, no converting just a bit of base work on the Blight Hauler to differentiate it from my other three:







I also had a go at differentiating my remaining issue 1 Intercessors with some of the multi part bits, here are the results:










I also got my Chapter Customiser Lion transfer sheet today, so the boys already completed will be getting their chapter markings. It is my last night of work this week so I aim to get a lot of painting done Thursday through Saturday.
