The most recent project has been a return to working on my Nurgle forces for 40k. I'd been finishing up some Plague Zombies I had started before 8th even hit...I'll have more of these guys in the army than the actual Poxwalkers:
They were a bit cut out, but you can see the also in progress vehicles in the background. From some fun sales events, I have the bits for so so many Mantic Zombies sitting around, and plan on diversifying the Pox horde to represent most of the 40k forces post-life.
Distraction, however, arrived in the form of Marine reinforcement!
I love the fact that the new Marine models actually live up to their reputation of gigantic bio-engineered super-soldiers. While it is a bit sad to slowly upgrade my Chaos forces to a more focused Legion, I wound up selling off or trading my older Plague Marines who look silly compared to these new guys.
The new models, while having less options and more strict builds, are quite impressive.
The Deathshroud basically only have head choices (and a few swap outs for the Champion), but they do stand out:
While I plan on converting most of the new character options from the Death Guard codex like the Biologus Putrifier, Foul Bloatspawn, and Ichor-Bearing Gooeycopyrightablename, I had to get the official mini for the Tallyman. Power Abacus!

After some time, I finally wrapped up my two sets of Death Guard from the new Warhammer 40,000 starter set, "Dark Imperium". The entire second set is converted, I'm not a fan of clones in my armies.
The rotting masses:
The Lord of Contagion, no real work done to him other than the paint:
Rotbringer Goth'ma, my count-as Typhus, built from the Lord of Contagion:
The Malignant Plaguecaster, another standard build:
And an Icon Bearer, converted from the Plaguecaster:
The Putrid Blightbringer:
A Sorcerer conversion from the Blightbringer. He could also count as Necrosius:
The Plague Champion:
He's the only non-Poxwalker who I didn't convert for the second copy. I set him aside, as there's another Plague Champion coming in the First Strike starter set. Maybe he'll be useful for one of the new entries when the Death Guard codex comes out.
I grabbed some Chaos Cultists from the Dark Vengeance box from a buddy of mine. Don't know what I'm going to use them for. Maybe Shadow War eventually.
Anyway, didn't want to spend a lot of time on them so I just spray primed with the AP color primers then applied some basic base costs. I finished them off with the AP strong tone quickshade followed by the anti shine. I think they turned out pretty well.
thanks for looking. Comments and critiques are always appreciated.
Ok so a little background, a friend of mine had this mini laying around for many years. He had inherited it from a friend many years ago and it had been primed, sort of. It was covered in a really nasty thick white paint that covered much of the detail. He asked me if I would paint it and I said sure. I tried all of the usual stuff to remove the paint with little success then resorted to oven cleaner which worked but I don't recommend it as the fumes are nasty. So here she is hope you like her.
Taking a break from working on my Kingdom Death stuff to paint this:-
Choose this one because I need to learn to paint without leaning forward so much, so a big, chunky dude seemed like the best place to start.
I'll make a start on the skin tomorrow, if I'm up to it.
