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!

Another Icon Bearer converted.  I wasn't a fan of the wind chimes.  I'll just have to sculpt a tentacle holding onto the pole.banner.thumb.jpg.f69bd067c8362a47162380ccc29e0efc.jpg

Your 40K adventures will be a joy to follow. You have some SPLENDID looking pieces. While I think most all the Space Marines are a boring lot. Nurgle's Guys are delightfully disturbing & wonderful twisted.

The tentacle(s) sound like just the thing to hold the standard. Have FUN with it all!

While they dried, some Rad Wasters were converted:

While most of the rabble also works as Mutants and Poxwalkers, I don't care for twins in the ranks and converted the leftovers for some alternate options for fantasy or feudal 40k:

The Cave Goblin King was also slapped together.  The source for his crown was unexpected!

I apparently posted the link of the completed Plague Zombies in the wrong thread:
 


Also, The Brotherhood of Rust got a bit more colorful:

Some conversions for melee armed Plague Marines.  Shields pending...I want to do a Shock Troop style for them.  I don't picture Plague Marines dual-wielding.5a1458d27a1b0_buboticwip.thumb.jpg.c782ae26519190c66b7d6d53186680af.jpg

      So this is my Super Secret Christmas Project for Mrs. Gargs (don't worry, this isn't all she's getting).
       

       
      Holiday Mouslings wonderfully sculpted by Gene Van Horne.

      I'm going to be giving this a go as a stocking stuffer for Mrs. Gargs. Now, I have no hope in heck of matching the beautiful paint job seen here, in fact, I'll be thrilled with a high table top quality on this as I'm just still new at this and don't get near enough time to paint as much as I'd like to in order to improve. That said, I do think I can at least get a halfway decent job done on this (by my standards anyway). However, it won't be without its challenges. In fact, I've identified three major hurdles already:
       
      1. The Super Secret. You see, my painting desk happens to be the dining room table and sits roughly 15 feet away from where Mrs. Gargs is usually sitting while I paint, and we very much have an open floor plan. So, keeping it a secret will be the first hurdle. I will at least have a decent amount of time on Saturday while she is at work in which to get a good start, but I am very much a slow painter, so in addition to trying to do the best I can, I will also likely be trying to get stuff done quickly.
       
      2. Ummm, yeah, there's a snow man. He's white. I haven't ever gotten a handle on white (admittedly still new). No getting around though, gonna have to give white a go. (Yeah, sorry, not gonna do a yellow snow man ;P).
       
      3. Basing. I'd love to do something a little fancier than the stock photo, but that's probably the best I can hope for. I may have to go searching for the main piece of base though as I don't think these guys are all going to fit on a 50 mm base, which is the largest I have at the moment. I'd gladly sculpt something (and will consider any and all suggestions) but the next thing I sculpt will pretty much be the first. That said though, for using snow on a base (I have some snow flock from Army Painter) do you normally put down a layer of green stuff for the ground, or just throw it on the plastic/wooden base directly?
       
      At any rate, I strongly encourage/appreciate/request/etc. any and all feedback along the way. Criticisms, critiques, suggestions, etc. Its all good. One of the things I hope to accomplish out of this is actually improving! And if I pick up some new skills along the way, even better! So don't hold back, I'm going to be trying a lot of new stuff along the way here, so I really do appreciate any comments and feedback!
       
      As always, thanks in advance!
