The Hobby Guilt 2018 – Part 1

Welcome to another annual edition of Hobby Guilt, where we’ve realised that we really do have too many miniatures that need painting. With Christmas imminent, and we hope the arrival of many more models, we thought it would be best to finish off some of the things we already have. So let’s see what we… More The Hobby Guilt 2018 – Part 1

Death Guard Land Raider project – The Disco Tank, part 3

If you’ve just arrived with this Land Raider, then you’ve missed parts one and two, which detail how I’ve decorated the inside of the vehicle. With the rough base coats done for all of the tank bar the smaller detailed areas, it was time to start on the washes. Below you can see some parts… More Death Guard Land Raider project – The Disco Tank, part 3

Death Guard Land Raider project – The Disco Tank, part 2

Welcome to part 2 of the Death Guard Land Raider project. If you’ve not seen part one, you can see that here. The main ‘plan’ now was to get the interior painted up.

Death Guard Land Raider project – The Disco Tank

When Dark Imperium was released last year, I was blown away by the Death Guard miniatures, and I started collecting Death Guard for Warhammer 40k. This in turn led me to Maggotkin of Nurgle for Warhammer Age of Sigmar, and between the two of them, I amassed a lot of Nurglings. Now reading through the… More Death Guard Land Raider project – The Disco Tank

Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 6

Well it’s been a fair while since I picked up Mortarion, nearly four months in fact, the last post being the 28th January.

Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 5

It’s been a bit of a break from Mortarion, and the Death Guard as a whole really, but I’m back on the horse and ready to carry on with him. I think the miniature itself was a little intimidating. It’s so big it takes an age, and the thought of continuing, knowing I have the… More Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 5

Death Guard Deathshroud Bodyguards – Part 2

Part one of this post can be found here. Since we had all the shades done at the end of part one, I started on the longest part of painting Death Guard in this way, the armour.

Death Guard Deathshroud Bodyguards – Part 1

As with all the Death Guard miniatures that have come out this year, I snaffled up the Deathshroud Bodyguards as soon as they landed.

Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 4

This week I continued from where I left off, on the base. I started by painting all the pustules and boils with a mix of Citadel Averland Sunset and Vallejo White, before adding Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade around these areas. I also added Carroburg Crimson to the areas surrounding the tears in the flesh/stone. I… More Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 4

Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 3

As I was saying in part 2, my initial plan to paint this in stages came unstuck because of how the model goes together, so my usual order of painting went out the window. This week, I’ve mainly been painting up the base and going over his cloak. At the end of part 2, his… More Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 3

How to paint plaguebearers

Plaguebearers. They’ve always been hideous, and as Games Workshop’s miniatures have improved, they’ve become more so. With the release of Blightwar and the ongoing Death Guard releases – you may have noticed I’ve been painting Nurgle a LOT – I thought it would be a good time to expand my Chaos force for Age of… More How to paint plaguebearers
