From the Shed: Nurgle Daemon Prince

This is going to be the leader and centrepiece for my army- I really enjoyed painting him up and went to town with the washes and detailing. I imagined him as a Chaos Marine who has achieved his aim of becoming a Chaos Champion, rather than ending up as a Chaos Spawn, as seen in the previous post. Those 40k fans of a certain vintage will remember the Chaos campaigns you could run from the Realms of Chaos books. I alwasys fancied that sort of narrative driven skirmish campaign. I guess Necromunda fulfills that need now but I may yet go back to the old Rogue Trader ideas.

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: Death Guard Characters

I’ve been using lockdown to get my Nurgle army painted, getting very close to it being finished now.

Over the next few days I’ll put up a series of posts showing what I’ve added to it…

First up some Character models:

Felthius, Typhus and a Lord of Contagion.

Tallyman, Malignant Plaguecaster, Plague Surgeon and Foul Blightspawn.

Some of these I’ll be able to use in Kill Team too which should be fun.

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: The latest expansion for my Van Saar gang.

Given that the local club where I play Necromunda has been closed since lockdown I thought it would be a good time to get the next 10 of my gang painted… I know that makes 30 but it gives me plenty of options to swap out models as my gang grows in campaigns (which will hopefully restart sooner rather than later). Also I still had some of the Forge World Weapon parts to use up.

The only down side is I’ve gone off the colour scheme I picked for them now. I’ll still use them as they are a good gang but I was less enthused about painting them than I thought I would be.

Still on with the pics.

The full 10.

The shield carriers – hand flamer, plasma pistol, flamer, multimelta and las carbine.

Gangers with melta gun, combi plasma/ las gun and servo claw, Graviton gun, stave and sub las carbine, twin plasma pistols.

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: NBC troopers and assorted GW figures.

I rush painted these for the Zone Alfa game that I featured in my last blog post.

The NBC troops are, of cource, early Copplestone sculpts (still available from Moonraker minitaures) . I can’t say enough nice things about this range….

The Ur Ghouls and Spindle drones are from the Blackstone Fortress exapansion pack that I picked up.

They should be useful for lots of different things. The Ur Ghouls (the blue ones) were to  stand in as mutants in Zone Alfa.

Cheers,

From the Shed: Chaos Cultists.

I love these little models- painted up 30 of them now. Great fillers as horde type cannon fodder for either my Death Guard army or to be worked into a Necromunda campaign.

I went for a mix of colours, keeping them fairly bright too, green, blue and a pink/ purple mix.

If you are interested… here is where I take my photos. It is a nicely waethered bit of stone by my back door (yes I need to tidy it up a bit).

Post will be a bit sporadic going forward. Nicola and I have come down with a mild case of Covid-19. Nothing too serious but it is surprisingly debilitating.

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: Pox Walkers.

Whilst I had some painting mojo I got these finished that had been sat on my painting tray from well before xmas.

 

I wasn’t happy with my first attempt at some pox walkers so I experimented with these. a mix of GW contrast paints and normal techniques with plenty of ‘nurgle’s rot’ added for slime effects.

A bit paler than my normal style but I like them- Will do the rest I have to do like that.

From the shed: Aeronautica Imperialis.

I got the starter box set of GW’s Aeronautica Imperialis for xmas and wanted to get the planes painted before I played it.

The orks’ aircarft were easy to do – a spray of red paint and adding some details.

For the Imperial planes I also used a spray can, grey primer first then green over the top after masking first. Then just an easy job to add the details in and finish off with a wash.

Rather pleased with how they turned out.

I’ll be sure to post when I’ve played the game.

 

Cheers,

 

Pete.
