To add to the number of projects I'm falling behind on, I picked up the new 40k boxed set, "Dark Imperium":

I'm really liking what I've seen for the new 40k, and although I haven't gotten a real game in in a long time, I've played Nurgle Chaos Space Marines for a long time.  It's really cool to seem Marines the size they're supposed to be.

I skipped over assembly photos, and went straight to the drybrushed armor.  I think there's some shoulders and skin done in this photo, too:

I haven't even primed the Poxwalkers yet.  I already have a ton of modern/sci-fi zombie types, and while I do plan on using the new sculpts, I want to convert the second half a bit before I paint them.

You can see my previous project, the poor Cave Goblins (of The Hobbit films), literally pushed to the side.  I may work on them as a co-project, as they would make great Poxwalkers!

As I'm painting, I suddenly have the urge to crush a Poxwalker with my bare hands.  So many fiddly details!

Thankfully for the official sculpts, it's just going to be these and the First Strike sculpts.  The rest will come from my existing Plague Zombie hordes.

While I'm not a fan of Nurgle generally, you make them look sick!!


That would be the best compliment I could get for the forces of Nurgle.  Thank you.

Time for the Helforges to heat up.  Some old vehicles, either assembled by myself many moons ago or acquired in varying condition, are getting drafted into The Forsaken Sons:

Nice motor pool! What are your plans for them; any converting, or just get 'em painted?


Oh, they're heavily converted from what they were the other day when I found them again.  The pipes were added, they had icons done.

I need to dig out my gargoyle heads for the lascannons, and figure out what scraps of bits I have to build the sponsons...both on the "newer" Predator design.

Tentacles!!!! They need tentacles !!!

 

Also maybe you could use Reaper's Fly Demon for some cool conversion on a vehicle?

Or the smaller Bones one for some heads?

As stretch goals unlock, over 210 models become available to help you build incredibly detailed and tightly packed skirmish tables or larger, sprawling battlefields.
       
      The huge core set of 80+ interlocking spaceship wreckage parts is delivered as stl files. It features incredibly detailed, double sided hull plates with internal features, computer terminals, piping, machinery, airlocks, windows, rooftops, debris sections as well as attachable ship featuressuch as boosters, engines, landing gears, weaponry and hi-tech gadgetry such as sensor arrays.

      The other set of first completed miniatures of 2021, miniatures from the Dunkeldorf range from King Games.  Very inspired by Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.

      The majority of them are from the newer Prancing Peacock Kickstarter but some selections I made were from the existing line.

      The tables and chairs are cheating, I think they're from Mantic Terrain Crate and were ready already, I didn't back for any of the extra scenery from Dunkeldorf.
