Bonecruncha’s Pariah Conflux and Nurgle Lord of Plagues

 

John2

November? Was that really the last time I posted? I’m genuinely shocked how quickly time has flown by this year.

On a more positive note, however, 2017 hasn’t been all completely “hobbyless” for old Boncruncha… Not at all. In fact, things started out relatively productive on the painting front – at least by my poultry standards – and I managed to put the finishing touches to several units which were clogging up my workspace.

If I’m being totally honest with myself, I would have liked to have had more to show by now, but with moving house recently my mojo for painting pretty much upped and left. It doesn’t take much, as you should all know!

Now that I’m moved in, happy, and settled into my new pad, I thought it was about time I applied myself towards tackling the mountain of models on my desk that are so desperately in need of some colour, as well as updating Slow And Purposeful more frequently.

To make life easier for myself, I’ve downloaded the WordPress app to my mobile phone, which in theory should make blogging far simpler, and I won’t have to use my old, donkey of a laptop to update my progress. Trust me, you wouldn’t believe how painful using that laptop was at times!

Before I go, I’ll leave you with some images of my most recent projects – a Pariah Conflux of cursed Flayed Ones and Wraiths, which I used to great effect in a kill teams tournament earlier this year, and, of course, a Plague Lord for Warhammer Quest (which, sadly, I’ve yet to use in a game).

The New Batch

John2

Having applied the final touches to my Plague Marines over a month ago, this one’s well overdue. I won’t bore readers with a bunch of irrelevant excuses, although I beleive a more stringent process for updating Slow And Purposeful is certainly in order. If anyone out there cares, why not leave a comment below and let us know what you’d like to see more of in our updates. As much I enjoy blogging, I’m still relatively new to this game and bringing you all enjoyable content is what I strive to do – and our followers’ collective input would be extremely helpful to us!

Plague Marines

Since my last update, I’ve  made some decent headway with the unit of Nurgle Spawn, which are gradually getting closer to completion. Here’s one I snapped last week against a beautiful Play-Doh backdrop:

Until next time,

A Glorious Host – Maiden of Slaanesh

Elazar 2

Made a start on painting the Daemons to go alongside the mortal denizens of the Space Hulk The Orchestra of Sin.

The photos highlighted a stray spot of pink that I’ve since fixed. Also got a family portrait of the 3 painted minis so far:

Just need to decide what to paint next!

WIP: Nurgle Spawn

John2

Instead of painting Plague Marines yesterday, I thought I’d take a break and start work on some Nurgle Spawn conversions I’ve had in the pipeline for a while. Being that I’m not a massive fan of the actual spawn models themselves, I decided to opt for some Forge World Plague Ogryns to act as my nigh-unstoppable toughness 6 unit, which I reckon are a pretty sound alternative.

As there isn’t much scope to mix and match the parts that come with these models, I built the first three the way the sculptor intended, but, after acquiring two more from eBay, I thought adding some additional parts and green-stuff would be a great way to add some suitably-horrific variations.

With a bit of luck, I’m confident I can have these guys on the painting table as soon as next week. In the meantime, I should have the first five of my 14 Plague Marines completed to go towards the 1000 points worth of models I would like finished before Christmas.

More to follow soon…

An Orchestra of Sin -Lord Vardas Soulchewer

Elazar 2

Seems to have taken a while to get this guy finished. He initially started life as a Crimson Slaughter ‘Prophet of the Voices’ with a Mark of Slaanesh but in the couple of battles he’s fought so far he’s been a Black Legion Lord with the Spineshiver Blade or a counts-as Lucius The Eternal. Lord Vardas Soulchewer. Although I’m hoping he’ll earn the epithet Wulfenchewer against our regular Space Wolves opponent…

The mini is a Forge World Gal Vorbak marine with the head from the  Slaves to Darkness Chaos Chariot kit and the claw-spear from a Hosts of Slaanesh Hellstrider.

I might need to add something extra to his base just to finish him off though.

An Orchestra of Sin – The First Oktavist

Elazar 2

I’ve had my first painted Noise Marine finished for a little while now but only just managed to get some photos of him that I actually like!

Took a while to find a ‘rank’ title for him that I was happy with. The Kakophoni in the Horus Heresy are split into Orchestrators and Chora which I wanted to keep for Champions and Sonic Blaster armed Noise Marines respectively, but I needed something for the Blastmaster armed Noise Marines and after some research Oktavist stood out…

Just the rest of them to paint now! Any comments, feedback, critique welcome!

A Rustle In The Warp…

John2

Following on from the brilliant new additions made to James’ Tzeentch army recently, I thought I’d take this opportunity to share one of my own. Well, it isn’t exactly a new addition, as such, but rather a completely fresh start for my Death Guard. That’s right, the rest of my models are sat in striping solution as I type this update… (Gulp!)

You see, when I painted Typhus late last year, I decided upon a slightly modified technique for painting Death Guard armour. By doing so, of course, I created a problem for myself – my models simply didn’t match! It could be argued that Nurgle models don’t need to share the uniformity of, say, White Scars or Ultramarines – this much is true. But for me, personally, having a degree of uniformity is still important. The contrast between Typhus and my older stuff just plain irritated me, to put it frankly. Therefore, starting over mightn’t be all that bad, really. Most importantly, however, I’m hopeful this could signal the end of the hobby-slump I’ve found myself in lately.

Fingers crossed.

Peace J.
