Chaos Daemons - Daemons of Nurgle - 40k Additions

Hi All,

So the final 'Daemons Additions' for now, showing my completed additions to the Dameon army in the form of Nurgle units.

Great Unclean One

For this model I opted for the fail/sword combo. The model was based with Death Guard green, with dark angel green added to the parts that would be in shadows, then a highlight of an old goblin green colour, followed  with a wash with green/agrax to build up the colour. The boils were picked out with a deep yellow, and all the open wounds were painted similar to sights I've seen in operating theatres, with the opening of the wound having red outer colour, with a deep yellow for the 'fat'. The deeper recesses of the wounds were painted with a richer red, and had blood for the blood god added to add a shine to it. The intestines were painted purple to stand out. I then added Nurgle Rot into folds, and over certain parts of the model to add further details to the model.

Rotigus was painted similarly to the Great Unclean One, however this was over a Zandri Dust base to alter the hue of the model. The tentacles were painted going from purple to a pink tip. I also added some bright green to the 'force rod' to try to make the rod pop.  
Scabeiathrax the Bloated

Again I kept a similar scheme to the first GUO to keep the units looking like a force, I swapped the washes around so that the green went over the Agrax. The sword details were picked out with A rust dry brush which was strippled onto the sword to mimic rust. Typhus Corrosion was also added to add further detail to the sword.

Cor'bax Utterbright

For the Cor'bax model I moved away from Greens to make the model stand out, using a Zandri dust base, washed up with Agrax. The tentacles were painted to match the tongue in a deep purple to match the other units. Plenty of Nurgle Rot was used on this model!
Mamon Transfigured

I redid the initial scheme over Mamon to fit with the other models, further washes of Green and Agrax was added, as well as Nurgle Rot. The wounds were also picked out like the GUO.


9 Bases of Nurglings, all painted as per the Great Unclean one, with details added to stand out such as the wounds, tongues and eyes. I really like the overall look of all 9 together, that they all tie in, but also would look good as a single model.
Giant Chaos Spawn

This conversation used the 'watcher from the Deep' model (Which I loved the moment I saw it) as a Giant Spawn, pulling its weight over a down Imperial Knight, (Which might be of a similar colour to Siph's..) The model again was painted a similar scheme as the GUO, with the knight painted Blue, with plenty of browns around the edge to represent mud and dirt.

Hope you like the Disgustingly Resilient amounts of Nurgle reinforcements...

Cheers, Lord Halfpenny (64 points to the annual painting total)

Legio Astorum Reaver Titan Up-Gunned - Dual Turbo Laser Destructor

Hi Titan Engineseers, welcome back. So, as I mentioned before, Reaver Honorum did well at the June's Titan Owners Club Walk UK 2018, despite the standard Reaver armanent of Gatling Blaster, Apoc Launcher and Reaver Triple Laser Blaster... for the next walk I wanted some more hitting power for Titan Vs Titan, so I completed a Reaver Volcan Cannon and now a carapace Dual Turbo Laser Destructor.
The WIP pictures of the conversion are HERE, and now completed I think it looks epic, the additional pieces blend in well and look the part.
I added some colour with the red Lenses and laser-sights, and trimmed the Astorum Blue with gold.
The additional hatch cover blends in well now the gold rim matches the trim. I kept the hatch metal and functional.
Here is the cap mounting piece, with magnet for a firm hold. I also coloured the Aquila even though no-one will see it.
The barrels were heat stained with a simple recipe of Sepia, Purple, Blue and Nuln Oil with a light black drybrush on the business end.
And here it is on Reaver Honorum in all its glory, now bristling with Titan stopping power! A certainly more powerful punch than a Gatling Blaster and Apoc Launcher, now with 3D3 S10 Laser Blaster, D6 S25 Volcano Cannon and 2D3 S16 Turbo Laser Destructor weaponry tailored to kill Warlords!
I think my additions to Honorum match fairly well with Slayer Sword winner Richard Gray who did the titan for me, what a genius, my gold is a little warmer than Rich's recipe but I don't think it is too noticeable. His blending is a whole lot better than I could ever achieve and his airbrush work is spot on. I used transfers from the Legio Astorum Decal Sheet now OOP... but I bought a few in the last chance sale.
Ready to face the TOC traitors once again... Lyden P's Legio Fureans!
How many Lasers is enough? My next Reaver (after the long suffering Warlord..) will be a dual wielding Triple Laser Blaster and carapace Dual Turbo Laser Destructor - so eight barrels of titan killing Lasers!
And a final shot of the new up-gunned weaponry. Cheers for reading this far, thanks for dropping by.

Cheers, Siph. (10 Painting Points for Titan sized additional weaponry)

Legio Crucius Warhound Titan - WIP #2 - Construction of Torso

Hi All,

I am beginning to make some progress with the 2nd Legio Crucius Warhound, with the body of the Warhound pinned and glued into place using JB Weld. The torso and pelvis has already had magnets added to allow the legs/body to be separated for transportation.
I've started looking at potential poses for the legs, with progress of this should be ready enough to be shown next week I'm hoping.

Thanks again for stopping by!
