All That’s Left Is Blood – Part 1

I’ve had a pack of angry, Khorne-worshipping berserkers sitting on my desk for a while now, just waiting for a little love and a coat of paint to come their way. Frankly I’m getting a little sick of the sight of them, so I’ve decided to get them all painted up if it kills me (which – if the rest are as much of a slog as this one was – they just might).Khorne Berserker ConvertOrDie (1)Khorne Berserker ConvertOrDie (2)Khorne Berserker ConvertOrDie (3)Comments for the comments box, slaughter-mates? (And feedback for his throne of course…)

Realm of Plagues – Part 5

And after a slight hiatus a forth pestilent Terminator lumbers forth from Nurgle’s garden!

Unlike the others I wanted to tone down the guts and go for a more restrained horror, whilst still making it clear that this is a servant of the plague god.

I also wanted to try some new things on the base (rather than just using more green gunk. Much and all as I love green gunk…)

And here he is with his foul battle brothers. Just got a bargain on some ‘pre-loved’ Black Reach terminators so don’t expect this to be the last we see of this filthy squad. In the meantime your thoughts are as welcome as ever.

Realm of Plagues – Part 4

Following the completion of the champion for my squad of Nurgle worshipping terminators I decided to strike whilst the iron was hot and get the squad’s icon bearer finished off as well. You may recall that last time we saw him he looked like this:convertordie_nurgle_terminator__4At the time I felt that he was rather waspish in the waist – all fine and well for Slaanesh’s image-conscious lovers but hardly acceptable for Nurgle, whose followers are rotund and jolly to a man. Before he saw any paint I needed to build up the belly, and give him some appropriately horrible guts into the bargain. All of that brings him to this; finished at last.ConvertOrDie Nurgle Terminator Icon (1)

Realm of Plagues – Part 3

Cast your collective minds back to November last year and you’ll recall this happy looking gentleman; the champion for my squad of Nurgle terminators based on the Putrid Blightkings. He’s been progressing slowly ever since but a few days ago I decided to crack on and actually get him finished. Here’s how he looked last time we saw him:convertordie_nurgle_terminator__3_

And here he is now:Nurgle Terminators ConvertOrDie (1)

I have high hopes that I’ll get the icon bearer finished soon as well, and have even started putting together a fourth member of the squad. Watch this space!


Wicked Mystic

The release of Silver Tower has me rather excited about all things Tzeentch at the moment. However with a pile of partly painted plastic roughly the size of Mount Everest currently occupying my painting desk – plus the financial strain of upgrading my computer ahead of Warhammer Total War – I’m trying to reign in my desire to shell out on more models. With this in mind I’ve tried to use my resurgent allegiance to the Changer of Ways for good, and finished off this Sorcerer who’s been sitting part-painted for longer than I care to admit.

In the Service of the Gods – Part 9

I found this poor old chap lurking in the bottom of the bits box. As models go these really show their age now, even alongside the ‘modern’ Chaos Marines – which are themselves often decried as fit for retirement. Sadly he proved to be suffering from a chronic mould-line problem which defied my best efforts to cure it and drained my enthusiasm for the project, hence the rather workmanlike paintjob.
For now I’m going to call a halt on the Chaos Marines – mainly because there are a few other projects I’m itching to work on. Until I return to them here’s a groupshot to tide you over.


In the Service of the Gods – Part 7

When Squad Valaghast advances their hound goes before them, sniffing out the spoor of their enemies, its mournful howls calling its brothers to battle.
