Following the fun of the 2013 ToEG (The Nurgley Appendages) I'm carrying on from where I left off.

With a solid base of well over 3k of Nurgle Death Guard my plans for this year are as follows:


1. Take any existing base-painted models from the 2013 project and fully finish the paint jobs:
Plague Reapers x 2
Plaguehounds x 2.1 (one just needs a few finishing details)
Contagion Engines x 4
Defilers x 6


2. Rebase the older Death Guard and Beast of Nurgle stands - less because they are on square bases, more because the green doesn't match the mud of the newer models:

Image

To match these:

Image


3. Build a 2k EpicUK AMTL list based around the Plaguehound conversions and Plaguelord conversion, possibly with a Reaver-equivalent in there to take it over 2k.

Image

Image

Image


4. Bulk up the Death Guard force by increasing some of the formation add-ons and increasing the options I can field.

Based on what I've been proxying or want to use but haven't tried out yet, this is likely to involve:

  • 'Stretching' the Death Guard stands a bit when rebasing, to get three Retinues rather than the current two plus some random bits. I will need to do a third Lord from scratch.
  • A seventh Defiler is needed, possibly by Jan 18th! More will be done as inspiration strikes.
  • Death Guard Terminator formation.
  • A few Vindicator conversions.
  • Enough Rhinos to take at least one DG Retinue.
  • More Contagion Engines, possibly simple conversions from some mk 1 Bombards.
  • At least one Plague Tower, either scratch-built or based on an existing Capital Imperialis model.
  • Adding a spacecraft or some aircraft, preferably aircraft that would do double duty in the Nurgle AMTL list.
  • Paint the Great Unclean One.
  • Make/convert a Daemon Prince.


The first deadline is the Winter Warmer in just under two weeks. In theory I've got everything but a seventh Defiler.

Roll on the Dribbly Gribblies!

I'm definitely considering tealing your idea for the bonejacks although probably as a Plague Tower equivalent instead and glad to see this continue.

Ta all! Here's an update, this time in the 2014 thread instead of the 2013 thread...



Mockups for a couple more Defilers.

Image

Image


Components:

Image


All made a lot easier by having proper tools...

Image


Yes, I pinned all four legs.

Image


Mostly assembled. Note that the 'head' went through a lot of different variations having originally started with the top half of a Plaguebearer, this is the turret from a 15mm GZG wheeled drone.

Image


Basing started.

Image


Based and fully assembled. The beetleback head both gave it a better rearing angle and allowed three feet to be attached to the base.

Image

Image

Image

Image


Sandy Paste drying on the base, plenty of plastic putty gloop on the underside helping hide some of the gaps where the legs don't quite meet the body.

Image

With a bit of luck I'll get this one undercoated today so it can be painted in time for the Winter Warmer on Saturday...

Ta! Inspiration for this one came from one of the painting competition entries with legs stuck on a Rhino.

The four legged defiler has some great weight to it. Leaning back but reaching forward, great!

Paint has been applied!

Image

Image

Image


Now with yucky wash on the metallics, a mix of Coat d'Arms Black, Chestnut Wash, Vallejo Smoke and a little bit of the old GW Imperial Strike Green.

Image

Image

Since these were taken I decided to go back to it and add some edge-highlighting to the claws to make them look like a harder material and highlighted the Titan head/gave it some orange gem eyes as it was making the model look unfinished.

I also applied some of the metal wash to the existing Defilers as I had some left over.

I stuck some models under proper lighting this afternoon. In the interests of keeping things in the same thread I'm sticking them here even though these first models were finished last year...

Contagion Engines. Ideally the bronze areas need a wash, the tanks at the back could do with painting to look transparent and the eyes need doing. Not sure whether to shade the Bilious Green areas.

Image

Image

Image


Death Guard Havocs. I'm calling these done.

An oddly appropriate SEVEN Defilers.

Image

Image


Close-ups of Defiler No. 7, the tank on the back still needs liquid sloshing around and I may need to pick out the gloop. Done apart from that. Note the Tzeentchian colours on the Titan head. ;D

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Scale shot with a plastic Rhino.

Image

Image


While I was at it, a scale shot for the most finished of the Plaguehound conversions.

Wow, these look awesome painted up :) I can imagine the Ultras going "it's right behind us, floor it!!" ;D
