It's a shame it's going to be so hard to source those drop pod fans for a lot of people.


Apart from the Exodus Wars models, the Drop Pod fans are on some of the bits sites.

Anyway, the rest of the Blight Drones are mostly assembled now, due to a delivery from one of those bits sites...

I still need to add spindles to the undersides of the fans and some gloop to the three new ones.

This shot shows the newer construction method for attaching the fans:

Image


Here's the bits haul. Eight fans (four of them already used on the Drones) plus a few Blightking bits. I'm thinking of using the big bell as part of a Plague Tower scratch-build, a little like a Skaven Screaming Bell.

Ah yes I had exactly the same idea for the blight king bells!

I was thinking, I'm never going to get it perfect, but a plague tower of sorts could be kitbashed with some ruin sprue on top of a super heavy chassis, perhaps with Warhammer Ogre faces on the front?

This one got some paint today, having been undercoated a couple of weeks ago.

Image


The main base colour was a watered down mix of CdA Dwarven Bronze and VMC Smoke. Followed (once thoroughly dry) by a thick wash of VMC Smoke, CdA Chestnut Wash, old Citadel Brown Ink and a tiny smidgin of dark green to take away the warmth.

Here's the wash halfway through being applied, I mixed a bit of black in when doing the engines:

Image


Once the wash was thoroughly dry the bronzy areas got a light drybrush of old GW bronze and then some judicious application of GW's verdigris paint, something-or-other Oxide. Assorted details were picked out, including red, blue and green running lights.

Image

Image

Image

I'm happy. :)

I hadn't really been planning to do these yet, but Steve54's Death Guard list prompted me...

GRIBBLY TERMINATORS!

Image

Deathshrouds including a Lord character:

Image

Image

Grave Wardens (with daemonic assistance), the pipes on the back of the 'normal' Terminator are to represent a Destroyer Hive:

Image

Image

Grave Wardens 2:

Image

Image

The remaining fourth stand, Deathshrouds including Mr. Tentacle Head:

Image

Image

Image

Image


All ready for base landscaping and texturing...

Ta! They were fiddly but fun - and largely inspired by having only one stand of actual Chaos Terminators so they had to be 'stretched' a little...

P.S. And Warmaster bases to make them look more imposing.

I may have accidentally built a Plague Tower last night...

Bulk 'sketch' using LEGO:

Image


LEGO used to work out sizes for the side silhouette plus a trace around the final piece:

Image


Mostly-assembled Plague Tower. I still need to sort out a mount for the bell and add gloop swirls to the tank on top.
