Foul Blightspawn and Noble Elves!

Last week I posted a work in progress shot on a Foul Blightspawn for my Death Guard army and I managed to sort out a base for him up shortly thereafter. Here he is in all his feculent glory:Feculus Spew is ready to spread death and decay.                                 The weather here in Seattle has turned pretty cold, so its not optimal priming/spraying weather.
