Death Guard


Loyalists, Traitors and Pointy Hats!

First on deck is the first five Assault Marines for my Horus Heresy army. These cats have been a lot of work - mostly due to the fact that I think I'm hitting burn-out for painting yellow infantry. That said, I'm super happy with them. I need to get cracking on the next five. This will bring me to about 4,000 points/200 power levels for my Imperial Fists.These guys are a mix of MKIV and MKII armors, with shields and jump packs by Kromlech.After these cats were done, I needed a break so I turned my attention to a single model for my Death Guard army - a Foul Blightspawn. The current Death Guard are just such a treat to paint up. I've still got to work on a base for him, but he should be finished up pretty soon.This guy is literally dripping with detail.And I loved every nub and bolt.I'm pretty chuffed with the painted liquid in his tank. I've also been nattering away on more High Elves. I've still got paint up a command group for the spearmen, but the rest are finally based and ready to go. Pretty soon I'

Chat: Conquest Issues 15 – 18

It was the first week of September that I received my first few issues of Warhammer Conquest. We’re fast approaching five months and I’ve managed to keep up to date by painting every issue before my next delivery arrives. I’ve truly surprised myself. I thought I would have fallen behind a long time ago. After the jump I’m going to share my secrets on how I’ve managed to keep on top of this.More after the jump

Finished! Mortarion, Primarch of the Death Guard

Mortarion, Primarch of the Death Guard. But I call him Buttermoth. This was my second time painting this model, which is always and interesting experience on such a large figure, spending that much time again on the same model. What did I like from the last one and what would I have done differently? I forgot but here are some pictures.

Showcase: Death Guard Contemptor Dreadnought by Silvernome

Hey everyone, Silvernome here back with more Chaos Legion goodness!I’ve always been a fan of the Chaos Legions, but since I mostly play Death Guard and Thousand Sons I never really have had the chance to paint the other Legions without building out a force. I’ve always had a soft spot for dreadnoughts, they are just so iconic to Warhammer, so I decided to start collecting Contemptor Dreadnoughts from each legion to give me that chance to paint them all. When I’ve eventually collected and painted them, the grand plan is to make a small diorama to show them off.More after the jump

WIP: Death Guard Biologis Putrifier

Just wanted to share my progress on the Biologis Putrifier. The main miniature is finished and I'm currently painting up the base so I can glue him to it. I'm procrastinating a little bit because I'm dreading painting those back pack spikes with all those vials on. So much intricate detail. It's definitely helping by painting it in sub assemblies. The Get a Grip painting handles are helping loads.  You can get your own handle by clicking these links. UK sales, Global sales, alternatively just search eBay for Garfy's Get a Grips.

WIP: Death Guard Foul Blightspawn

Here's my work so far on the Foul Blightspawn. A Grenadier with a penchant for concocting foul diseases and spraying them over his foes. He came with Issue 12. Wow,  that's three months I've been working on the miniatures from the Conquest publication. If you're wondering why he's hovering in the air, I'll explain after the jump. More after the jump
