An Accidental New Army

06/30/2019 Leave a comment

It was my birthday near the start of June and my wonderful and extremely understanding wife bought me a 40K model.

As she knows me better than anyone and because she’s a professional artist, I trust that she’ll get me something that’s both cool and something that I’ll like to paint.

I also half-hoped that she’d get me something totally unexpected and I was not disappointed!

She got me a Necron Catacomb Command Barge!

This is cool for four reasons:

•1 – It’s a really cool model;

•2 – It will enable me to try out new painting techniques;

•3 – It’s from an army I don’t have, therefore…

•4 – I GET TO START A NEW ARMY TOTALLY GUILT FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, that’s what I’m doing 🙂

As I’ve never painted Necrons before, I picked up a box of on-spruce Warriors cheap on eBay. Tonight I managed to paint one.

Aside from the slightly botched assembly (he’s not hunched over), I think it went okay. Moreover, I really enjoyed the process so I’m looking forward to getting his mates done and, hopefully, on the table sooner rather than later.

I really can’t believe it, not only have I finished my army in time for Saturday’s tournament, I actually finished within the fifty days I arbritrarily set for the task!

Today I finished my Lord of Contagion.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 49: A Spell is Cast

Yes, this should have gone up yesterday but it’s only 17 or so minutes late so screw you!

Anyway, I managed to finish the Malignant Plaguecaster today (yesterday, whatever) so that leaves me with the Lord of Contageon to finish off tomorrow.  Plus I have an extra day if I need it since the tournament’s on Saturday.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 48: The Little Plague Engines That Could

Aren’t they so sweet?

Myphitic Blight-Hauler and Foetid Bloat-Drone

This is my second Bloat-Drone and first Myphitic Blight-Hauler.  I loved painting these however I found the ‘easy build’ hauler a bit of a chore to put together.  I ended up snipping off the majority of the tabs in order to get the bits to line up.

Anyway, it’s a lesson learned for the next two.

Two* days left and only two models to do and both are getting close to completion.

 

*There are actually three days until the tournament, but I prefer round numbered challenges.  Not that I need the extra day, honest….

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!

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 39: Daemons Finished!

With these happy little critters I am very relieved to announce that the daemonic contingent for my Nurgle tournament army is completed 🙂

Nurglings 02

I utterly adore painting Nurglings, they’re definitely a go-to project when I need a quick pick-me-up.  I am certain that I’ll be painting many more of these chaps very soon.
