I've been thinking about a doing a Nurgle army for quite some time. The release of Dark Vengeance made me finally get some of the models and start the army, but the true catalyst for the creation of this dread legion was a miracle. A local hobby store that was my nearest GW stockist decided they weren't selling enough so they would no longer carry GW stuff. Thus was created the Half Price GW Blowout! Needless to say I grabbed most of their CSM stuff and a few of the loyalist sets too.
I'm sorry to say I should have started this log back then (september) but I figured I might as well start now. I have nearly 1000 points pretty much fully painted but there is a lot more in the pipeline (that's my reasoning for this being a project log, and I'm new so if this shouldn't be here please do alert me)
Without further ado, here is the Corroded Host thus far:
I hope the colour scheme is interesting! I want this to be an example of an obviously Nurgle worshipping force that isn't sickly green. The emphasis is on rust, hence the army's name. Here is the as yet unnamed first Dreadnought:
Plague Marines squad 1:
Plague marines squad 2:
And the Rhino:
You may notice there aren't actually any dark vengeance models there... That's because I was unhappy with the colour scheme and changed it to the new one you see above. I have not yet repainted the dark vengeance models so you can see the original scheme here:
The problem with the old scheme was the lack of definition. Everything was very brown and muddy. I now paint the fleshy areas in a contrasting colour and add sections of white armour to break things up further. I feel pretty good about it so far.
Here is what I am working on at the moment: The Terminator squad.
And this is the Blind Lord:
I feel kind of like I should have made him more disgusting and that's why I haven't started painting him yet. I may increase his dose of Nurgle's Rot!
My plans for the immediate future include a biker squad, a heavy bolter Havoc squad, a team of Raptors and a second Dreadnought. All of the components for these guys I either have or is currently on its way in the mail. Also I plan to strip these guys to make a further squad of 7 Plague Marines:
They are relics from about 8 years ago!
I have some background story for the army as well as more detailed plans, but I've said enough for now. I'll try to update fairly often.
