And here’s the lads getting ready for some paint.
A032C9D2-0920-4BB0-8744-30792DC70FDF.jpg
So out of the squad from dark imperium I’ve converted the champion into a plague caster and then I’ve added a plasma to my new champion and then the aiming dude’s Bolter got swapped out for a plasma too.
In hindsight I recon the one throwing a grenade could get turned into a blight spawn fairly easily.
Will get some paint pictures up next week or maybe tomorrow if I get some hobby time.

That's one of my least favourite Chaos Knight lances, but it works well as a staff.
Well I guess that’s a compliment, :wink:
Thanks Dave!

Currently I'm at a bit of an impasse. My airbrush is giving me a big headache. It’s clean as a whistle yet I’m getting air coming back into the cup. The only thing I can think of is that the nozzle isn’t sitting snug enough when I tighten it up. The brass nozzle has got some discolouration like oxidation but seems smooth. I’m going to play around a little more, as I don’t really want to buy a new £25 nozzle and find that isn’t the issue. It’s an iwata hp-cs if any one has any ideas It would be much appreciated.

Ok news, I managed to sort my airbrush with some ptfe tape, it’s stopped the air backing into the cup, though is a temp fix, but better than a £25 bill.
So here’s the dudes with the start of some paint.

Should have the base colours done tomorrow so update soon.

I wasn’t happy with the Bolter on my plague caster so swapped it for a blight grenade.

I think it’s more fitting.
Here’s a plague Marine with flail I’ve been working on. I think he’s just about there, just needs some tat to take him slightly above the rank and file.

In other news, I’ve just about finished the squad from the starter so pictures will be arriving soon.

Here’s another flail Guard

And here’s a blight launcher marine I converted from a grenade launcher and a Bolter. Again some more scary tat too add, but I’m happy enough to make another once I find another grenade launcher.

Suggestions are most welcome.

Been mad busy over Xmas so not much hobby has been achieved. But I managed to finish modelling the close assault death guard squad. That’s a champion, 2 blight launchers and 2 flail dudes.

Will get some paint on them soon. Right after I’ve finished decorating my front room.
Happy new year heretics!

Love it all!!


Champion looks great, flail-marines look damn cool (although I'd have probably just had three heads on that one guy), and the grenade launchers are ingenious!
Thanks dude!
Ideally I would have used just 3 flail heads instead of 4 but they didn’t have enough bulk to look like they are used by a space marine.

Here’s a closer pic of the champion. I just need to add some cables to the fist.

Well finally got my unit of 5 Death Guard from dark imperiam based. Still need to add some grass spots but currently my grass is winning at hide and seek.
So here they are

After looking at these pictures I think I need to do some more work on the single eye guys face.

Here’s 2 more characters I finished this week.
First up the Tallyman.

Then my Lord of Contagion.

Added a few guardsman body parts to the base. That weapon shouts a narrative from the rooftops.

Only a plague caster to go!:victory: for the infantry. Then I’ve got another RT Predator to fix up, though this one will be rocking some las Cannons and a RT Rhino to strip and paint.

Well I’ve been procrastinating over this model for nearly three years. Finally I got the balls to put it together and chuck some paint on. So here’s where I’m at with my Kytan.

The legs on this model were a total bitch to put together. But now it’s built I’m well chuffed. Enjoy heretics!
