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:


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.

Individual shots of the Foetid Blight Drone (sadly the first one didn't really come out)


The second Drone, converted to have a different look for melee.


I  should probably get some Nurgle's Rot or other technical paint, and cover up some of the more unique battle damage on the second drone to make them look a bit different.

Looks great!


Now I feel shame because I haven't even gotten all of the Primaris Marines assembles yet, let alone paint anything...and I've had mine since they became available.

Now for some Troops!

Plasma Gunners, the only in this post worth anything.  Head and backpack swaps:




And the generics...well, as generic as Plague Marine can be!

I almost forgot the most pathetic of Dark Imperium forces, the Poxwalkers!

I haven't painted near the full set yet and probably won't.  I actually traded the second set from the second box.  While I don't mind the super-mutated new look, I had plenty of Plague Zombies done already and don't want to spend all that time detailing miniatures that are just a trash horde unit in game.

I've tried to convert all clone sculpts into being also fantasy-appropriate or also usable as Cultists.

Good painting, and very interesting conversions, grandfather Nurgle is quite pleased.

I'd be insulted if it wasn't a Nurgle project.

It would also be acceptable for Undead.

I was also wondering what that cobblestone mat that your figures are standing on is...

It's a Christmas Village mat that Michael's gets in for the holidays.  I can't remember the brand.  They also do a brick one.

Okay, this guy snuck in, and isn't really from First Strike:

      Presenting Ensign Roxy "Hotshot" Malone, the colour scheme test Voidsman for my Starstriders set.
      I think she came out pretty well, and the group should look rather striking, when I eventually get the rest painted.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Finally got around to take pictures of my Warhammer diorama.
      I entered it into a local competition, and was lucky enough to win the Warhammer category. Thanks to everyone who wrote a comment in the WIP thread.

      Some more 3D prints for my recent Dungeons & Dragons games.

      First is my fiance's Half-Elf Warlock, designed by HeroForge and printed on my Ender-3.

      Next, a Goliath Barbarian in the same game, the file was designed by the talented Miguel Zavala/DM Workshop.

      Last is the infamous Strahd von Zarovich, printed for our recently finished "Curse of Strahd" campaign.  This design was also by Miguel Zavala.

      Adding even more to my Thundering, here's a duo of Giants designed by the talented Duncan Shadow Louca.  I printed and painted them.

      The Frost Giant.

      Here he is with his compatriot, who I had posted earlier.  Smart reuse of parts.

      The Fire Giant.

      A set of Orc Shamans recently released through Duncan Shadow's Patreon.  All were printed on my Ender 3.

      My favorite of the batch, the, ahem, "Vomit Mage".  The design was apparently inspired by the Warhammer Ogre Firebelly, who has always been a favorite of mine.  This was my first print using clear filament:

      The most generic looking of the Shamans.

      The corrupted Warlock.  I think I'll call him Dan.
