The Shambling Horde 2: Shamble Harder

04/30/2020 1 comment

Long-suffering readers (hi, you two!) may remember that as part of my Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge back in 2018, I managed to paint up forty Poxwalkers. Since then I acquired three more sprues from Trenchmate Tim from his Conquest sub and over the past week I’ve slapped some paint on.

If you add in the six I painted back in 2017, that gives me enough for three full squads with four models to spare.  More than enough to make Grandfather pleased!

I’ll probably revist them at some point down the line, I love the idea of fielding over one hundred of these chaps 🙂

Necromunda Ambot

Today I finished my first Ambot.  I decided to paint this one as generic as possible in an industrial-inspired scheme so that any gang can use it.

The other one in the set will be painted to form part of my Orlock gang – once I figure out what their colour scheme will be…

Chaos Space Marine Helbrute

As many hobbyists, I’m using this time to catch up on some projects that have been lingering in my Drawer of Shame.  First up was the monopose Helbrute from the 6th edition Dark Vengeance set.

I’ve been wanting to paint this since it was first unveiled back in 2012 (simpler times etc) and it’s been sitting on-sprue in my limited edition Dark Vengeance box since then!

I also wanted to get this chap done as I’ve been neglecting my Chaos Marine renegade chapter The Heralds of Desolation, since 8th dropped and I started building up my Death Guard.  Plus, I’ve two sets of the Chaos sprues from the Shadowspear set that I want to paint sooner rather than later and they’ll be joining my Heralds so I wanted to get some practice in before commencing that project.

I’m not sure what to finish next, I have some Plague Marines basecoated as well as a Catacomb Command Barge, and a nearly-finished Ambot all staring at me from the corner of my desk.

Maybe I’ll start something new?
