Default Stuff's dealings with Chaos.

I have recently been getting back into warhammer with a couple of mates (played a bit while i was in primary school), i feel my hobby skills have improved since then and as no one gets to see my models apart from my two mates i thought I'd post a log here.

To save myself some cash as i don't have much, I have taken some of my old models and stripped the paint off them and done some conversions and painting.

I am base my army around thousand sons and plague marines (an odd mix but I like the models). I don't really like the thousand sons sorcerer mosel so i have converted one using my old cypher model:




I filed cypher's head down and then drilled his kneck out a bit using my dad's power tools. Painted him the other evening:





My painting I am pretty pleased with considering i am just getting back into the hobby and lack much patience. Any advice on how to improve would be much appreciated!

And now for my Nurgle daemon Prince! I stripped the paint from an old cave troll and add made him a new head with a gas mask sort of thing, a bigger belly with some guts showing and some boils forming the nurgle symbol. Here he is so far:




I am rather impressed with how he has turned out so far considering this is my first encounter with green stuff! I have to say the guides here on heresy helped A LOT for me as a beginner. Any crit. would be appreciated here too. I ordered a pair of "winged nightmare wings" to add to him also.

That's all the pics I got so far but i am nearly finished my first unit of thousand sons so you might see them up here tomorrow or the day after!

What I have and will start painting soon:

-2x Obliterators (hopefully a couple more soon!)
-unit of chosen with 4x meltaguns
-unit of death guard

What i have and hope to re-paint:

-Land raider

What i am still to buy and paint:

-another unit of deathguard
-another unit of thousand sons
-rhinos for my troops
-more obliterators
-unit of flamer chosen

awesome conversion work! I envy your greenstuffing skills. The Cypher conversion looks great, and so does the paintjob

As a devoted follower of Father Nurgle myself, I feel obliged to rep you for a worthy Daemon Prince conversion Is that a 40mm or 60mm base? Part of my brain tells me that Monstrous Creatures should be on 60mm bases, but I could be wrong; if you end up using a 60mm base, though, I'd strongly recommend adding a couple of Nurglings to the DP's base to add flavour - I mean, who can resist them? They're so cute

By the way, I'm intending to produce a tutorial on making Nurgle Obliterators in the near future...keep your eyes peeled...

I second the 60mm base idea but take it a step further magnetize the nurglings as wound counters!

Its looking good so far fella, very nice painting and sculpting!

Nice bit of recycling going on there.

For a first attempt with GS that DP is very good indeed. The mask is a great idea that I will be purloining when I use a plastic Troll that I have stashed for the same purpose.

Keep an eye out for Svartmetall's tut when he posts it, it will be well worth the wait.

For just getting back into painting that Sorceror looks ace! Love the energy effect on the sword, very cool.

The Cave Troll conversion is flipping awesome, I'd not thought of using Trolls for Daemon Princes. Might have to give that a go at some point in the future. If you're having trouble with a 60mm base for the Prince, just drop me a PM btw as I've got a couple going spare.

Have some rep.

GW Edinburgh should have Nurglings on the shelf, but otherwise yeah you can get them from GW's online store, or from someone like Maelstrom Games.

I've no experience of magnetising myself so I'd not know how to go about doing that, but if I remember correctly some of the Nurglings come with pegs on them, just like the legs on larger metal minis, and if you make the right sized hole in the base you could just that to secure them.
