Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 44: Troops Finished!

09/14/2018 Leave a comment

Today I’m happy to report that the final unit of troops for my tournament army is completed.

Plague Marines 01

Three of these are from the Dark Imperium and with the separately bought Icon Bearer and the three easy build Plague Marines I completed a while ago, I have full squad*.

Plague Marines 02

Now it’s onto the final characters and plague engines.

 

*Yes, I know you can have up to twenty in a squad but points are in short supply and seven is Nurgle’s sacred number. So there!

They’re done! The bloody Poxwalkers are done!

With these four I’ve finished the two full squads (plus a few extra, for variety).

And with their friends.

The end of this part of the project is in sight! I finished these four PoxWalkers today and have started on the final four which I should complete on Wednesday.

Wow, it’s been quite the twenty five years days, hasn’t it?

I’ve managed to finish – you’ve guessed it – four more PoxWalkers today.

Here’s the current state of the challenge.

Completed

• 14 PoxWalkers

• 1 Sloppity Bilepiper

• 1 Beast of Nurgle

• 1 Foetid Bloat-Drone

In Progress

• 8 PoxWalkers

• 1 Spoilpox Scriviner

To Do

• 4 Plague Marines

• 1 Foetid Bloat-Drone

• 1 Myphitic Blight-Hauler

• 1 Plague Surgeon

• 1 Malignant Plaguecaster

• 1 Lord of Contagion

• 3 Nurgling Swarms

• 3 Plague Drones

It does seem that I’m more or less half way through the project at the halfway point, genuinely didn’t think that would be the case 🙂

Now, back to work!

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 24: The NeverEnding Unit

Please, just make it stop! I’m really beginning to struggle with these PoxWalkers. I got these finished today.

I have twelve more to go and I’m going to power through them. The next three are already base coated so at the very least they’ll be done tomorrow.

Man, I love this model.  I always wanted one of Forge World’s Greater Blight Drones but never really got around to it (yet) and when the first images of the plastic Foetid Bloat-Drone surfaced early last year I nearly had a heart attack!

Anyway, here it is 🙂

In my enthusiasm to get started I stupidly assembled the model into one piece (excepting the base) so it took ages to get the tendrils and Plaguespitters painted even half-properly.  I still have one more to do so I’ll keep the weapons and turbines as sub-assemblies so at the very least it’ll take less time start to finish.

Now, back to the Poxwalkers…

Quite literally as I returned to my grown up job after two weeks holiday. Never mind though as I’m determined not to let up until this bloody army is done!

Today I finished up yet another batch of Poxwalkers and, as you can see from the image below, made decent headway on something else…
