Nurgle month-week 3: Harbingers Death Guard

Nurgle month-week 3: Harbingers Death Guard

Today’s post is just going to be a visual post, as I’ve not planned any real backstory to the Harbingers Death Guard side.

The collection is only recently been started, after buying myself the Death Guard Codex and Mythitic Blight hauler after Christmas. My collection will only be a small warband, as I don’t want to build another big faction (I’ve got no more room left for new big armies to store up for now) as well as commitments to finishing off my Stormcast Eternals army.

Just a quick note, not all models have had their basing finished, as during the time I took these photos, I ran out of Astrogranite texture paint. I do apologise for any terrible basing.

Plague marines

Poxwalkers

Malignant Plaguecaster (converted)

Mythitic Blight hauler

Later on next month or so, I’ll be detailing how I’ve painted my Death Guard Faction with simple step by step process. I think you guys will be curious to know how I’ve done the rust effect and all, so I’ll be sure to let you know the colour scheme once I find a new pox subject (I mean volunteer) to paint.

That’s all from me for now. I hope you have enjoyed this post, your support and positivity has helped me to really get a lot of models painted lately.

Nurgle month- week 2: Harbinger Legion

Nurgle month- week 2: Harbinger Legion

Back again with another Nurgle themed post for Nurgle month. This week, we return to the Harbinger Legion with more new units primed and ready. Including a flyer, Sorcerer, Warptalons and Havocs.

The Stormtalon (or Stormdrake) was made from two kits of Stormtalon/Interceptor, which I’ve used the spare parts to assemble this model. Since I’m basing the flyer on the Haldrake datasheet, I’ve equipped it with two flamers (although it will still be classed as on attack).

Next up are the Havocs, and by heck they’ve had a rough time!

Followed by some very enthusiastic Warp Talons, with some grizzly claws of fresh blood.

Finally, my personal favourite model, the Chaos Sorcerer!

That’s all for now for this week. I hope you have enjoyed this post! 🙂

My enthusiasm and energy is running low at the minute due to course work taking much of my time, as well as doing other projects. So either next week or the week after will be my final week of Nurgle month. The last post will certainly be a good finale!

As ever, a teaser for you guys and girls!

12 days of winter [day 7]: Dark Millennium Faction Collection- Daemon Prince of Nurgle

12 days of winter [day 7]: Dark Millennium Faction Collection- Daemon Prince of Nurgle

[A quick message to you guys readingthis] It’s strange now that I’m posting loads of Chaos Space marine models on the blog for months now, I would never have imagined that I would be able to paint as many as I am now. To be honest, many of the models you have seen so far have only been painted this, when I’ve actually had them for nearly eight years now!

It’s thanks to your support with likes and comments that’s really gotten me motivated to get this army painted. As of typing this post, my collection is just about inline with a demi-company (half a battle company size) with extra support and elite reserves.

I wouldn’t have been able to do it without your support. So from me to you, to papa Nurgles little Nurglings, thank you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now back to the post subject! Today, I have a model that’s not plastic, nor resin metal, but instead the dreaded Finecast!!!!!!

However, this is only one of the two Finecast models that haven’t been too messy for me, in fact, this Daemon Prince model came out pretty good ( but still, Finecast is still S#!£)

I love this model so much! The painting scheme works really well with the cracked armour, skin and glowing decay. I will admit that Finecast did have its pros when it comes to sharp crispier details from mould.

I plan to have this model be an equivalent to a Chapter Master of the Harbinger Legion, as I find it would suit the model being a wise, diseased, old and generous prince of Pestilence.

12 days of winter [day 5]: Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Dark Apostle

12 days of winter [day 5]: Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Dark Apostle

We are now officially just near the halfway point in the calendar count down, and what better way to celebrate the season of joy, and happiness than to have a zealot priest cast you down to oblivion with his religious proclamations of the Dark Gods! That’s right. Doom and gloom descends down to this post to spread the grim darkness of the 41st millennium!

Since I’m on a tight schedule getting as many posts done as I can for the calendar count down, I won’t be able to add any lore background for this model today. But not to worry, as I have, instead, photos of my latest model painted to show you guys.

This model was part of the Dark Vengeance starter set for 6th/7th edition for the Chaos Space marines faction. Originally a Champion for the unit of Chosen, I’ve decided to make him my Dark Apostle as he looked more fitting with the gear he’s equipped with.

I’ve used the same colour scheme as usual, however, I’ve painted his shoulder pads and helmet strip red to represent his office as a Dark Apostle, being taught by the Word Bearers to preach the galaxy about the undivided Dark Gods (well, this one decided Nurgle was badass to be shared with the other three gods).

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Defiler

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Defiler

A short post today on a model that I’ve shown before, and for the last time hopefully, the Defiler.

I’ve made some improvements to the model with rust trims and some minor details on the model. There’s not much to say on the model, however, here’s some photos to show the model in all its weird damnation!

I didn’t want to make a long post today because this model wasn’t that interesting to talk about. As I’ve painted this model awhile back, and I’ve shown it in past posts.

However I thought I’d show you guys an updated progress on the model for my collection. I apologise if this post was too short, but fear not, my next post in the series will be an exciting one for sure!

The next post will be taking a look at the Dark Apostle of the Harbinger Legion. Once part of Lorgars fanatical zealots of preachers, now an outcast for devoting to one of the Chaos gods, this Apostle devotes himself only to the God of disease and Pestilence.

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Warpsmith of the Cult of Chimera

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Warpsmith of the Cult of Chimera

Bind the flesh to metal with flame and misery.

Tear the emotions of mortality and goodness until nothing but void.

Combine the strongest components and materials from only the strongest subjects.

We much create the Chimera.

~chanting of the Cult of Chimera, during the creation of the Flesh Beast.

Working alongside the Harbinger Legion, the Cult of Chimera are a valuable asset to the legion for it’s war machines and ancient technology. Having proven their techno-Heresy skills when invading the Hive world of Torvalion, the cult has gained recognition and funding to build their influence for others to join.

It was the heretic Warpsmiths of the Cult of Chimera that created the unique breed of Helbrutes, the Flesh Beasts.

The Cult wear unfamiliar marks of armour that aren’t recognised by existing marks, nor altered marks of the renegade space marines. It is in fact suggested by the Tech priests of Mars, that the Cult has produced its own identity to distinguish it’s inner members.

The model was made using many spare bitz from many kits, including a classic resin metal model of a Dark Angel Space marine (I clipped its head off like a heretic 😏). The most obvious kit bashing was the helmet, taken from the Kharadron Overlords Set. I thought the alteration would look even more in line with the Dark Mechanicum.This kit bash model had saved me money and less hassle, than if I brought the official resin Warpsmith, having brought a few *cough* Finecast models in the past, I knew it wasn’t worth buying the resin one.

Whilst there’s no Mechatendrites on the model, I can just imagine it, and I think the model would look a tad bit silly with metal tentacles.

Anyway, that’s all there is to say for now on this model, but I will say that you should keep your eyes peeled for future posts, as the Cult of Chimera has influenced certain marines into their cult……

Next time, walking on four legs, bashing it’s two big claws and walks like a constipated sea crab, it’s the Defiler!……….yes……that’s all I have to say to be honest………(anti cliffhanger moment).

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Flesh Beast Helbrute

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Flesh Beast Helbrute

During the campaign of decimation in the year 477.39M to take over the Hive world of Torvalion, the Harbinger Legion used ballistic and chemical missiles to smash the Imperial defences. These strikes would weaken many Imperial Guard defences, but only on the surface, for the Hive world has underground layers of habitation and strategic defences.

Whilst it would only take a simple bombardment of torpedoes or corrosive plague to tear down the Hive, it was however not that simple. The legion needed something from the Hive that was vital for the mission to succeed, something which the Daemon Prince Nal’torvul needed intact.

So, the priests of the dark Mechanicum, notably the ones of the mysterious cult named ‘Chimera’, devised a plan that would give the Legion a chance to raid the lower layers of the Hive without structural damage. They’ve created a new form of Helbrutes that combined both the dark arts of the machines, the flesh of the slain and the blessings of Nurgles diseases into a new kind of monster. The ‘Flesh Beast’

These monstrosity are both flesh and metal with the essence of life and death in eternal cycles. The beast is neither mortally alive nor dead, it’s abnormal state is achieved by means that only the cult of Chimera can master.

Once released from their chains, the Flesh Beasts made short work to tear the walls down, charging into a frenzy as they clear the way down the lower Hive layers.

This heavily kitbashed Helbrute was made using parts from various kits including the Maggoth Lords, Vampire Zombie dragon kit, Garden of Moor gates and Blightking parts. All used to create a very disgusting and very imaginative model.

With such an kitbashed that offers different textures, forms and shapes to test paint, I found this to be a great time to do some creative painting. I’ve really enjoyed testing out colour schemes for the Daemon Flesh, meat racks and bone.

This is probably one my favourite models from this faction collection, as it just screams (literally) to life with character and imagination. But it’s not the only model I’ve kit bashed for this collection……

Next time…………
