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. With the March to War in full swing at that point, all my efforts were focussed there, and the amount I felt I had to do on Mortarion left me a little… More Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 6

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. I used a mix of watered downWhite and Citadel Ushabti Bone. Next came the corrosion. As these are pretty… More Death Guard Deathshroud Bodyguards – Part 2

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. When they arrived I was both made up with them, and perplexed, as I thought they’d have more poses and options, but it doesn’t actually matter, because the models you can… More Death Guard Deathshroud Bodyguards – Part 1

Hobby Guilt – The saga continues

Rob We’ve been at this a few weeks now, and despite everything, I’ve still not stuck to the exact script of trying to clear out the backlog. This has been in no way helped by Necromunda being released. Since it’s release, I’ve primed all of the scenery with Games Workshop’s Stormvermin Fur spray and put… More Hobby Guilt – The saga continues

Hobby Guilt Season 3rd Update

Adam: Hi all. Apologies for missing last week’s instalment. Travelling with work got in the way, so all that really happened was that my models from Perry miniatures arrived, and there was much rejoicing. Unfortunately, this week’s progress hasn’t been particularly exciting either. This hobby challenge is definitely proving more of a grind than Blitzkrieg.… More Hobby Guilt Season 3rd Update

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

Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 2

Last week I posted about painting up Mortarion’s legs (here), and this week I’m carrying on with him, but in a slightly different way. I’d planned on painting him up in stages, so legs, cloak and backpack, etc, but discovered that in order to paint him like that, I kept having to handle each side… More Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 2

If you’ve not read Part 1 yet, it’s here, and it will bring you up to speed on how to get to the start of this one. Where to start with the final part? The base.

How to: Paint a Death Guard Bloat Drone part 1

The Bloat Drone from the Dark Imperium box was one of the most revolting miniatures I’ve seen in a while. It’s battered armour plates, corroded and mottled spikes, and bloated and sagging skin give the model an overall hideous look. If the Emperor does indeed protect, he’ll hopefully see his way clear to swatting them… More How to: Paint a Death Guard Bloat Drone part 1
