Nurgle Daemons Feculent Gnarlmaw

This week I've a couple of Nurgle trees to present!

Very interesting models to paint - and I think they came out quite nicely!

Nurgle Daemons Plague Drones

Now on to some of Grandfather Nurgles finest! Plague Drones.

These were a pain to pain! Aside from the PlagueBearers I fully assembled the modes so found the wings harder to airbrush than if I'd have kept them separate.

I painted the PlagueBearers using the same colour scheme covered here.

For the Plague Drones, i used the following paints:

  • Body - Death World Forest > Ogryn Camo > Ushabti Bone
  • Wings - Zandri Dust > Karak Stone (around the edges)
  • Legs - Loren Forest > Castellan Green > Dryad Back
  • Carapace - Abaddon Black > Eshin Grey > Dawnstone

Sylvaneth Drycha Hamadreth

Next up is Drycha!! What a model this lady is. Fantastic design... it was a tad awkward to paint even using subassemblies but it all came together nicely in the end.

As Drycha is a named character, instead of following my standard Sylvaneth colour scheme, I followed the suggested colours on the reverse of the box. The only change was I applied the shade as the final stage - after gloss varnish and mixed with Quickshade Mixing Medium.

Sylvaneth Spirit of Durthu

Whilst I had my camera and lighting set up for the Fellowship of the Ring models, I thought I'd take some good shots of some models I haven't posted about. First up is Durthu!

This is the 3rd Treelord type dude I've pained so I'm very used to dividing the model into the most appropriate subassemblies and how to get the best out of my colour scheme - which is described here.

Fellowship of the Ring

Following my first foray into playing MESBG I bashed on through the remaining Fellowship models... and here they all are!

It's nice to have my first MESBG army finished! - especially when its only 9 models.

Of particular note; painting the Hobbits was the biggest challenge. I've not completed such small miniatures before but it was a great way to practice brush control.. and I think they came out ok!

First games of MESBG

My first trip to Warhammer World on 3rd Jan was to play my first games of MESBG with a chum from up north.

For both of us, these were our first games so we kept it to 400 points. As I'd been working on the Fellowship of the Ring models and completed Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas, they represented my army list. My opponent took 400 points of Minas Tirith.

We played 3 games in total. It was a very enjoyable session and I was surprised in how quick MESBG was/is to play! Considering the 100+ page rule I feared it might be cumbersome... but it wasn't at all! Can't wait to play more games.

Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas: Fellowship of the Ring

At the turn of the year, I was busy working my way through the Fellowship of the Ring set. I finished the 3 hunters first - Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli.

I'm quite happy with how they turned out - the difference in scale between the MESBG models and 40k/AoS was fun to deal with! I also deliberately used a large brush (Redgrass Games size 2) in an effort to improve my brush control.

Blood Angels Army Work in Progress

This post is a bit of a photo dump of many of the WIP photos I've taken, over the last few months, of my Blood Angels army.

This project has been my main hobby focus since September/October 2018 and I have recently just completed all the models shown below.

At some point, I'll post about the finished project and update my BA scheme recipe/process but for now... here the photos!

Trying to get back on track with blog updates. To kick things off, here's a photo dump from the summer gaming day I held in August.
