Forever the hobby-butterfly...

... Although this time it has a cause - of sorts.

My Khador project got stopped in its tracks. I had meticulously airbrushed all 11 jacks, painted all the metals, airbrushed them with varnish, and when I tried the oil wash, as I had used on the last 3 I'd done, it didn't look anything like them - more brown, dirty and just... Not good. Until I figure out how to do them, they'll be sitting on the shelf for a bit.

Anyway... Cue Age of Sigmar. At least I know exactly how to paint these guys, having written every process down.

I painted 10 blight kings, a mounted lord, and a gurgle giant about a year ago, but things have been a bit quiet regarding this little Nurgle project. Now's the time to get to work again.

In a flurry of inspiration, I've been painting 3 Plague Drones (the plague bearer carrying flies - sorry, not done yet, pics to come), and I've been inspired to do some conversions for the army; a beast of gurgle, a soul grinder (I DO love me some big monsters), a Maggoth Lord based great unclean one, and a skull cannon of khorne, made nurgly.

Here are some WIP shots - I've done a lot to them in the past week (fall vacation here in Denmark), so expect more soon.

The beast of gurgle:

The Skull Cannon of Kh... I mean Nurgle: 

Soul grinder - just a basic mockup:

  1. brilliant conversions! I love the use of the spiders as the bodies.
