Plague Marine Squad #6 & friends completed

Finished my last Plague Marines today meaning that all 41 inc. 5 Dark Imperium sets and 2 lots of the easy-fit Marines are now all painted.  Just leaves me 3 of my Blight Drones, a Plague Caster and 20 odd Poxwalkers.

WIP - Death Guard Hellbrute

Quiet night and due to a lack of the right glue I haven't been able to finish basing my Plague Marines so moved onto a Hellbrute.  Few hours later and its looking pretty good...

WIP - Nurgle Rhino

Had some Green Stuff and a spare Rhino so had a go at Nurgling it up.  The Nurgle stuff turned out ok in the end but as usual when it comes to painting large flat areas my results look awful.  Also made a start on my 2nd & 3rd Foetid Blightdrones.  Slightly quiet week painting wise so it was good to get back into it.

Nearly finished my last 10 Plague Marines as well - although I suspect I'll be getting more once the new plastic kits hit the market.  New CSM Codex pre-ordered and should turn up in the next day or so.  Looking forward to it.

Typhus conversion completed

Finished this guy this afternoon after getting him onto the table the other night.  Enjoying the Deathguard - they are very slow but still fun. Blight Drones are awesome.

Also looking forward to getting my copy of the new Chaos Space Marines Index this week... should arrive in time to use it at a one-day tournament next month.

WIP - Death Guard Typhus Conversion + Blight Launcher Shotgun

Had a spare half hour tonight so had a go at converting one of my Lords of Contagion into Typhus using a mixture of bits from my slowly dwindling supply. Also found another Deathwatch Shotgun which as allowed me to create a 6th Blight Launcher with the addition of an Heavy Bolter ammo drum.

The conversion process involved cutting the weapon haft away from the hands and then cutting off and rotating the left hand.  The weapon haft that was between the hands was added below the hand to form the base of the weapon haft.  The other bits included a green stuff blob on the models back with 6 cut off exhaust outlets from some leftover SM backpacks.

Death Guard @ 2000pts

Planning on getting my 2nd game with the new Death Guard in tonight.  2000pts against either Necrons, GSC, Tyranids or Tau - have no idea what my opponents bringing.  Going to give the following a try

Outrider Detachment
Foetid Bloat-drone
Foetid Bloat-drone

8 x Marines - Blight Launcher, Plasma Gun
20 x Poxwalkers
19 x Poxwalkers

The Hellbrutes are something I want to include with my Deathguard just because and Typhus is being proxied by a Lord of Contagion while I work on my conversion for him.
