Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 39: Daemons Finished!

09/09/2018 Leave a comment

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.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 37: Flying Hazard

It’s been quite a week but, a bit behind schedule, I’ve finished the next unit for my Nurgle army.

Plague Drones 01

I’ve been wanting to add some Plague Drones to my army since I first saw the models but never really got around to purchasing any.  These models were far more fiddly than I’d anticipated but I’m broadly happy with the end result.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 30 – The Writing’s on The Wall…

Well, tatty scroll at any rate.

This evening I managed to finish the last of my Daemonic HQ units, the briliantly dour Spoilpox Scrivener.

My wife got me this for my birthday earlier this year and I thoroughly enjoyed painting it.

Tomorrow I’m going to make a start on my Plague Drones and (hopefully) three more Nurgling Swarms.

Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge – Day 25: Halfway There!

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 18: Music to My Ears

08/19/2018 1 comment

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.

The Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge

H/T Games Workshop

Last week I signed up for a one day 1,750 point 40K tournament that’s being held on Saturday 22 September* (if you’re reading this Adam you’ll get my entry fee today, promise). I’ve decided to use this impending glorious defeat to really push myself to paint up a brand new army for it.

Therefore, I’m going to build and paint a brand new Death Guard and Daemons of Nurgle army by Friday 21 September.

Fortunately I already have a painted squad of Plague Bearers, some Nurglings, a Herald plus the easy build Death Guard and Poxwalkers so I don’t have that much to do…

Plus I have already purchased the rest of the stuff I need (mainly thanks to the Dark Imperium box) so here’s what I have to build and paint.

40 Poxwalkers

7 Death Guard inc Icon Bearer

1 Lord of Contagion

1 Malignant Plaguecaster

1 FW CSM Nurgle Sorcerer

1 Plague Surgeon

1 Foul Blightspawn

2 Foetid Bloat Drones

1 Myphitic Blight-Hauler

1 Sloppity Bilepiper

1 Spoilpox Scriviner

3 Plague Drones

3 Nurgling Swarms

1 Beast of Nurgle

Now, the observant among you will know that the list above contains somewhat more than 1,750 points. That’s because I still don’t know exactly what I’ll be taking and I like inflicting pain on myself.

Can I do it? We’ll see.

*The extra observant among you will have noticed that there are in fact fifty one days, but that doesn’t sound nearly as good, does it? Shut up!

The Changeling

The leader for my Tzeentch army (at least until I get a Lord of Change) is finally complete.

The Changeling 01

The Changeling 03

The Changeling 02

This was a fun model to paint, I included a profile shot to show my first ever attempt at wet blending on the staff’s feathers and snake.  Not fantastic but a damn sight better than I’d expected!

I would very much like to paint another of these in a few years time using Non-Metallic Metal techniques.  Once I’ve learned them, of course 😉

Also, next time I’ll paint this in sub-assemblies, not doing so was a massive pain in the arse!  Fairly sure I invented some new swear words.
