Following on from yesterday’s post, here’s the second unit I managed to compete.

Some of you may remember that in my Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge from last year, I painted up my first Myphitic Blight-hauler, now finally I have completed the squad 🙂

Plagueburst Crawler

Okay, okay, I know this is not a Necron unit – but I have a really good excuse!

Last Friday I had arranged a game with my mate Bruce (of Games and Theory), who happens to be the husband of one of my childhood friends (small world etc…).  Given that there was no way I’d be able to get my Necron force ready in time, I decided to park my shiny chaps and return to my… less-shiny chaps and get a few more units ready.

I had a long-overdue week off work and with my wife’s permission, I was able to devote the first three and a half days to getting this and a couple more units ready.

I’ll post up the other units over the next couple of days, and if I can make sense of the photos from the game, maybe some kind of battle report.

The Rotspawn!

I loved  working on this model, it’s only the second FW model I’ve completed but I think i’m hooked!

Plus, this means that for the first time ever I have a full sixteen player Blood Bowl team ready for action 🙂

Blood Bowl Six Nations – Les Escargots Putrides (France/Nurgle)

03/01/2019 Leave a comment

Towards the end of last year I was invited to participate in a Rugby Six Nations themed Blood Bowl tournament.  For those of you who don’t know what the Six Nations are, it’s an annual Rugby Union competition featuring England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales that’s played in February and March.

It was determined that the following BB races would represent the teams:

  • England – Skaven
  • France – Chaos
  • Ireland – Orcs
  • Italy – Humans
  • Scotland – Dwarves
  • Wales – Elves

I drew France so I had the option of a basic Chaos or a Nurgle team and given my recent hobby track record, I went for the latter 🙂

And with one notable exception* here they are!

Nurgle 01 - Whole Team

Nurgle 04 - Pestigors Front

Nurgle 05 - Pestigors Side

Nurgle 06 - Pestigors Rear

Nurgle 02 - Bloaters Front

Nurgle 03 - Bloaters Rear

Nurgle 07- Rotters Front

Nurgle 08 - Rotters Side

Nurgle 09 - Rotters Rear

Nurgle 10 - Game Aids and Balls

*I’m sure you’ve noticed the absence of player number one.  I’m saving that for a Rotspawn, assuming that FW ever release it 😦

The tournament’s currently underway, the first two games have been played and the next are scheduled for the middle of March.  I’ll do a write-up once its over.

I also hope to persuade the other participants to share their teams here, watch this space!

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….
