Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 25: Halfway There!

08/26/2018 1 comment

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.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 22: Droning On

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…

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 19: Back to Work

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…

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 18: Music to My Ears

What a week it’s been!  My productivity slowed a bit as Edinburgh during August has a number of pleasant diversions that can take a chap away from his painting desk 🙂

No matter, I’m still on track.

I painted this Sloppity Bilepiper over the weekend.

My wife got me this an a Spoilpox Scrivener for my birthday earlier this year so I’m especially pleased to finish this.

Next up is one of the Blight Drones from the Dark Imperium box and more Poxwalkers.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 11: A Beastly Business

You know, I’m not even remotely sorry for that.   Besides, I’ve just finished one of the most fun models I’ve ever had the privilege to paint, this chap!

With thanks to Trenchmate Tim who gave me this Beast of Nurgle for my birthday a while back 🙂

Now, onto something a bit musical…

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 9: First Squad Done!!!

08/10/2018 Leave a comment

Yep, with these four below my first squad of twenty Poxwalkers is done!

While you can probably make out four more on Painting Handles at the back of the photo, I’m moving on to some daemonic models to give myself a bit of a break.

My plan for the remaining ‘Walkers is to do four at a time between other units in order to keep myself sane.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 7: Getting Cross-Eyed

08/08/2018 1 comment

I’m definitely getting into the groove, so-to-speak. Churned out these dudes today:

And started on these:

Yes, I am one of those awful people with multiple Painting Handles, but they’re really good! Seriously, before I’d often get hand cramps after ninety minutes or so painting but now I can carry on pretty much indefinitely.

Well, until either the cat, wife or hunger get the better of me 😉

Once these ones are done I’ll have painted up a full squad so I’m tempted to take a wee break from Poxwalkers and do a special unit or character. I’ll decide tomorrow.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 6

With these four I’m now 30% of my way through the Poxwalkers.

I’d have hoped by now the pace would have increased however I’m still just ahead of schedule.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 4: Back to Work

No sooner had I started, I had to take a couple of days off thanks to some social engagements. But I’m back!

Today I managed to get these dudes done.

I’m now on holiday for a couple of weeks so my plan is to power through twelve more Poxwalkers before moving on to either Nurglings or a character or two.
