Sorry I have been away for a while, I have been having a bit of a hobby break. I think its good to step away from the paint brushes for a while and recharge the creative batteries.
So whats happening? Well I crashed out of the 40K tourney I was playing in, my Quarter Final was against a Daemon army (OLD BOOK) that was designed to fight power armour and I got wiped. Flamers are just amazing, especially against a low body count power armour army. I thought I had a good plan to win the game but by the end of turn three I was pretty much done.
What this does give me the chance to use is my ForgeWorld Plaguehulk, I bought the model when it came out at Gamesday a few years back, its a lovely model, basically a big Nurgle Daemon on a Soul Grinder chassis. I painted this using the same technique as the previous Nurgle models and I am really pleased with it. The skin is just a White Undercoat and then several layers of washes with some detail picked out. The metal is the basic Boltgun metal with a Bronze and Orange motel effect which is then washed. This gives a really nice rust effect. I will be getting second one soon which I will convert slightly to make it look different, maybe taking off the sword arm and putting the big Powerclaw on there from the plastic Soul Grinder kit which comes when you order the ForgeWorld model.
The rest of the list will be made up of large units of Plaguebearers, Beasts of Nurgle and a Greater Daemon. I am leaving the Greater Daemon to the end in the hope that GW release the rumoured new plastic kit. I would like to get the ForgeWorld one, but if there is a new plastic kit coming out I suspect it will be pretty awesome.
The club is running a game at Salute this year and some of my new Nurgle models will be making an appearance as part of that game. If your there make sure you come and say hello.
Until next time...
