Plague Marines On The March

Oh, hi there! Long time, no see! The following are a few updates on what I've been up to over the last few months in terms of Nurgly goodness foulness. In spite of not posting anything, I've done quite a bit! Here are the rest of my Plague Marines that I started over a year ago, for starters...

Chaos Terminators - A FULL Squad At Last!

For at least a couple of years, I have had a half-finished unit of Chaos Terminators lurking around my KR Cases. I successfully painted my mutated Champion, and my Heavy Weapon guy, and another interesting chap who I did some greenstuff work on. And then I hit a wall...

This week, I FINALLY finished the final two in the unit! A chap with a Chainfist and a Combi-Bolter, and a Twin Lightning Claw guy.

It was a great opportunity to get to grips with some of the Citadel Technical Paints, which allowed me to apply some much-needed weathering to the models.

This guy didn't feature quite so much weathering, but I painted his claws so that he tied in with Lord Octavius Kal Mazog, the leader of my warband.

A Nurgley icon for a bit of verticality in the unit, and to represent an Icon Of Vengeance or Despair on the tabletop.

I continued to use Space Wolf Heads instead of the CSM Terminator ones, because I hate the tusked helmets.

Et voila! The completed unit and my Warlord! Woohoo!

Lord Octavius Kal Mazog

After having my army being led by a Chaos Sorcerer for so long, I decided I wanted something that was a bit more of a blunt instrument. With that in mind, I constructed this Chaos Terminator Lord for my Sons Of Entropy.

I have similar issues with the Terminator Lord as I do with the Chaos Terminator kit (details a bit too blocky, for one), but at least the elevated position makes him seem a little more imposing.

Although the two weapons are painted in a similar style, I actually selected a Lightning Claw and a Power Fist. This will ensure that he still gets an additional attack for having two 'Specialist Weapons', but gives him the option of either speed or power.

I tried to use some greens in with the flesh tones, to make his cloak look a bit mangy. I think it worked...

Some Reinforcements Arrive

Here's my Nurglite Chaos Land Raider, offering a bit of added firepower to my Sons Of Entropy warband.

Replete with Forge World doors, even!

The Blessed Of The Father

This is my first attempt at a "modern" Plague Marine, and aside from the fact that it is made of Finecast (BLEURGH!), I love these models.  I bought this set off eBay, so they were a little damaged, but I patched them up, and I think they look pretty good.

The wonders of Papa Nurgle come to the fore once more - no need to be neat or tidy when it comes to painting Plague Marines!

The Shadow of Death

Here's my Heldrake. My pain in the arse Heldrake. This model took me longer than any other model has ever taken me.

Due to the fiddly nature of the wings and varying components, each part had to be hand-painted prior to assembly, which is not only time-consuming, but also very very frustrating, as it means you can't even play around with the unpainted model first.

In the end, though, it was worth it - everything fitted together perfectly, and the Heldrake looms over the rest of my army like an ominous cloud.

The Damnation Of Gorgax

A Chaos Vindicator! A much-needed Large Blast template comes with this chap. Hurray!

I've tried to make it as mucky and battered as possible.
