Well it needs painted but all the converting is done… until I prime it, see stuff I don’t like and add more to it.

So I got to Day 65 (Friday) and did so work on the Nurgle Speeder (Nurgeeder).  Saturday I was at OTT HQ playing some games and wasn’t home until 11.20pm, and I said fuck it, I’m going to bed.  Yesterday (Sunday), I didn’t do anything either so the streak is over.

Going to concentrate on a few other projects for a wee while – Flames of War, Kings of War and SPQR – but will finish the converting on the Nurgeeder first!

Day 55, 56, 57 - Nurgino Progress and I found another Blight-Hauler!

The Nurgino is currently at the stage were it looks completely shit.  Agrax Skillwash and more weathering will come to the rescue as it always does 🙂

I also found another Blight-Hauler, so I am going to do something different with it.  I am questioning myself….

Very conscious that I haven’t finished much recently, so do need to start focusing on the painting aspect of the project… as well as finishing my Germans, opening my SPQR and Warcry… Ah!!!!

Some days are good days and today was one of those days.  Added some paint to the Nurgino and experimented with some new Contrast paints I picked up on Saturday.  The Death Guard Green was deliberately painted in two thick coats with an old and too small brush as I don’t want it looking perfect (not that I would be able to achieve that anyway!)  Tomorrow I will shade and highlight the Green and then tidy up the tentacles and decide on a scheme.  The colours I used today will be grand for the odd tentacle, but I will mainly concentrate on using the greens, browns and yellows I have already used on the daemons.

I also added a wash to the faces of the wee cultists I sculpted faces for and think they look grand.  Pretty happy with myself and it isn’t often I say that about hobby stuff I do.

Finally, more rollmaker and green stuff work on the Blight-haulers.  I’m tempted to do something a bit more radical with main body on the tentacle mouthed one to really set it off as different.

Anyway, if you are looking at this you want to see pictures, not the shite I am spitting out of my keyboard!

...Another Load of Tat!

Day 44, 45 & 46 - Another Boring B-Side...

Again not much to report.  Saturday (Day 44) was spent playing games and I only built the two Chaos Marines above.  Sunday (Day 45) was spent watching rugby, eating chicken, napping and watching TV, but I did start to work on building and converting two Myphitic Blight-hauler and tonight I spent 20 minutes on them as well.  While not much was achieved, it is progress and that is the whole point of this.  A little bit every day, makes Nurgle a happy Chaos God.

Again not much to report as I have been mainly working on 15mm Germans.  Yesterday (Day 42) I added saddle brown and sickly flesh to the Floaty Thing… and today (Day 43) I primed my Nurghino (whose name is Ivana Infectu).

Day 40 & 41

The last couple of days I have been busy with other things so haven’t gotten a lot done.

On Tuesday, Chaos Army wise, I just started to built the above Warp Smith. I am 99% sure I didn’t order this, as while I am foolish, I wouldn’t have ordered this is Finecast. I am pretty sure GW sent it to me by mistake and I just put it on a shelf… I ordered something else new around the time of release and this was also in the order (possibly a Helldrake???).

Anyway, it is a terrible cast and that is the first time I have been close to binning a model but I won’t let the fucker beat me, he will be built and made look reasonable despite the shitty material it is cast in. Saying that, anything else I got in Finecast (well paid for) has been fairly decent (and mostly Nurgle)… one missing talon on Huron Blackheart has been my only problem… which may have been the same order as this… hmmm!

Day 40 & 41

The only real progress I made today, Wednesday, was undercoating the Cultists I converted. Will be interesting to add paint…

One of the reasons I haven’t gotten much done is I have been searching for models and tidying my shed so I can get back to painting in comfort and space. I found quite a bit for my Chaos Project (didn’t find Huron Blackheart though and the Helldrake is in a box somewhere). While the shed is tidy… the dining room table isn’t!

The focus is more on the photos I tried to take… nothing was in it!  Anyway, have added more detail to the Plague Drones, and did more tentacle things.  Going to do some painting tomorrow, as I have plenty built and plenty of ideas floating around in my head for paint schemes.

All the other photos were out of focus.  Still a bit to tidy up on these.All the other photos were out of focus. Still a bit to tidy up on these.

Some of you may be wondering who Bob Olley is… SHAME!  SHAME!  SHAME!

Anyway I tried my hand at a bit more advanced converting today and tried sculpting faces onto a couple of models…  Hopefully they will paint up ok… weathering and the fact they are Chaos should allow me to hid the shit bits.

Busy with other stuff but did a couple of things to keep the streak going.  Finished cleaning the Plague Drones I bought of eBay, and built the new Typhus model that came with Warhammer Conquest.  The older model is nicer – I have it built somewhere but the flies will be nice to paint.

Should get more done tomorrow.
