So for a quite a while I have had the want to do a Plague Marine Army.
After a Fantasy Nurgle army years back, it was always on the cards.
Now after buying Dark Vengeance ages ago, Dark Imperium a while ago, and starting Conquest magazine. It finally seems the time to get started on it!
A big part of the delay, aside from not having the time
, was being unsure on a colour scheme. Didn’t want to just do Death Guard, but still green and such.
So I’m working on that still.
Problem two to overcome, was repeat models, something I hate.
I have the Dark Imperium characters twice, and all of it coming inconquest again too.
Also the ETB marines have come from the magazine and I already had them. So now I have three sets.
Converting them up is the next thing, which is what’s at the beginning of this project.
(It will be slow going on this project. I’m in the middle of a tale of painters with friends doing Necrons, which may itself be a log).
On to the first pictures. The conversions of the ETB’s so far.
(Excuse the pictures, I’m gonna take in daylight going forward when it’s better).
They’ve all pretty much had some bits switched around using the Plague Marine Kit spares.
I still have three bolters, three Blight launchers and three champions. But they are all varied in more interesting ways now.
Champions (one with Plasma Pistol, one with one with plasma gun/ bolster as interchangeable backpack, then the last with power fost and same interchangeable pack). Gives me 5-7 champions total all with different options depending.
