Very nice - good effort KF.
Can you advise how you did the copper with the (i assume) GW oxide technical paint? I always struggle to make it look good when i use it.


I like the conversions - nurgling and fly heads look great!


Do these new models look noticeably larger than the Mk3 plastic kit, or the old DG metal models?

I give the copper one good coat all over, making sure it pools in the deeper recesses, then when dry give it a light dry brush of the copper. I had initially just put it in the deeper recesses, but it didn't look quite right.

Considerably bigger, in bulk as well as height.



The weather has been shit the last few days, so base coating has been out of the question. I got on to a bit more converting. The plague caster has one of the worst faces of any 40k mini, so I swapped it out for one from the Blightkings box. The top of his staff is from the maggoth lord set. I also swapped the cloud of flies hand for the dagger hand removed from the plague champion mini below. That guy got the plasma gun from the CSM set, and the power fist from the box of 3 DG. The base mini is probably the best of the DI set, and makes a nice base for the conversion.




On top of all that, the Primogenitor has sold his services to the Corpse Makers. His enhanced warrior rule, along with Typhus' rules, should provide a pretty serious buff for a horde of pox walkers, or those T5 DG. Besides, I've always wanted to paint him, now I finally have an excuse.

Okay that sounds terrifying. Fabius enhanced poxwalkers is perfect.

Weather still shit, so the only thing I have basecoated is 32 poxwalkers. I now officially fucking hate poxwalkers. I have batch painted whole Bolt Action armies of 70 or 80 minis, but these 32 minis are sucking the hobby life out of me. I have 20 more to assemble, but I think I'll be hard pressed to do the 8 required to get two maxed squads. Safe to say I will not be "that guy" running poxwalker spam.

I finally finished the 20 from the Dark Imperium box last week. I found doing a few between other sets of models makes tolerating them a whole lot easier.

Nearly there. These guys have been a chore, but I must say when they started coming together I got more into the painting. I like picking out little details, and on these minis minis there's no shortage of that. All the flesh has been done with various washes, to varying degrees of success. Just the basing, and details like adding rust and the Nurgle's Rot technical paint to go. On the whole, I'm not dreading doing some more as badly as I was.

Some pleasingly disturbing flesh tones there.

Thanks. There is actually that very conversion floating about on Facebook, and it is pretty cool.

Got my poxwalkers finished. I absolutely hated them at the start, but when they started coming together, and all the little details started coming to the fore, my opinion has changed drastically. I love these creepy little bastards. Maybe not enough to paint the final 20 lying in my to-do pile, but I will certainly do the 8 more required to give me two maxed out squads. I'll probably convert them enough to avoid more repetition than I already have.
