Nurgle was always my preferred chaos god in warhammer :) Some time ago I wanted to painted a big army just to have it, hence the amount of different plague demons I have at home ::):

As for mixing different models, my army will go totally wild in this field... While nurgle models will form the backbone of it, there will be so many other things in it… Yeah, some Reaper too ^_^ Stay tuned!

Life got in the way, as it usully does, but I've finally found some time for final highlights and details. Painting of my first three units is finished. No bases yet, I plan to do them in a batch, when I have more units painted. 

Few quick shots as a proof ::):


The last one with a flash, hence the lighter colours.


What now? That big demon from earlier posts, I guess, and another rank and file unit

Well, I didn't expect to paint 36 minis in one afternoon...




Original Scarecrows from the Nighstalkers army look, well, like scarecrows and they are the cheapest unit (with expendable special rule). In my swampy army I decided to use goblins from the GW Hobbit game. I bought them second-hand, they were already primed white. So, I used different washes - brown, flesh and sepia (and combinations of them to introduce some variety again) for skin, black for hair and weapons, brown (actually brown lines with some wash medium) for leather and wood, added some GW blood effects for wound and eyes and olive paint for loin clothes, and there you go. Oh yeah, you need to forget about many details and don't care much about precision. I had to mumble "table-top, table-top" all the time to suppress a natural instinct to make paintjob better and better.


This is how they all look from a distance, good enough for gaming purposes, I hope.

For me every painted army is impressive ::): I'm so happy to see the progress here, cause it will be the first time for me to play with a fully painted army. Not only that, it might be painted before I even start gaming!


Terror will be the centerpiece, so obviously I want to spend more time on it. Not to mention that is is just plain huge...


I have used black wash first, drybrushed olive and bone colours, and then washed/glazed some crimson. Lots of the blood effect in wounds and I plan to add even more.

On Saturday I got a package with my first quick unit, Shadowhounds ( well, swamp hounds in my army). GW Dire Wolves looked liked an obvious choice for my rotting army :)

Yesterday I them primed them. Today I painted base colours ...




And used some washes (flesh for skin, stone and black for all the rest) bit later.




WeI will drybrush some highlights tomorrow and call them done. At least that's the plan :)

Yay, I have a painted/based army! It's only one model costing 150 points and it's illegal, because I can't use a monster with standard troops ::P:


The original mind-screech looks like this:



Mine swamp-screech looks like this:

      Hi Everyone,
      I'm new here, been an off and on lurker over the years, and wanted to share some pictures most recently finished models.
      Before I began, I was looking for ideas on how to decorate the models and a lot of the pictures that I found of these models I didn't think did them justice. So I looked at other treemen models. What I liked the most was using foliage and turf material to create "real" foliage instead of going with just painted metal.
      I really enjoyed working on the models, it was a lot of firsts for me. The biggest one being water, I have seen a lot of videos about making water scenes and what not. Seeing the model with cattails on it I had to have it coming out of the water. I tried going for a wet dripping algae look. For a first attempt I think it did turned out pretty good. As far as the models go, I wasn't really thrilled with the appearance of the metal vines. So I created my own vines as well, which is another first. Quite fun but tedious and pleased with the look. Cattails were made from parts of floral wheat and tacky glue. Adding foliage to miniatures in general is a first for me as well, all the foliage was self made with colored sawdust and furniture foam. The only thing not made was static grass.
      The water is Woodland Scenics Realistic Water and their Water Effects. I liked how easy it was and relatively mess free compared to the typical 2 part epoxy that I've seen.
      After doing these minis I thought of something I am going to attempt on my other 6. I'm going to ditch the metal arms entirely and use floral wire as a support so I can then pose the vines however I want.
      Lastly, these are going to be a part of my Elven Army and perhaps a start of a Forces of Nature Army for Kings Of War. So these aren't my first models. Just the ones I'm most satisfied with. If you have any suggestions, critiques, or questions let me know.

      Another unit for my Swampstalkers  I was looking for a suitable alternative for Scarecrows, the cheapest zombie-like unit in my army. These goblins from the Hobbit game looked like a good choice - gnarly, twisted bodies with some wounds, smaller in size than plaguebearers I used for a slightly stronger unit of blood worms (my other infantry unit). And I got them very cheap, second-hand - they already came primed white to me, which saved some time. Lots of different washes, picked some details (mainly eyes and wounds/warts - both with GW blood effect). Swampy base of course, as this is the main theme for my army. Cut some of the models legs off to create an effect of them rising from the mud.

      I will use these GW Plaguebearers as Blood Worms in my Kings of War army. As with nurglings earlier, I painted lots of different skin tones to get some variety within the unit, hoping they still work well together. Table-top painting, not caring much about all the details or super quality.

      Third unit for my Swampstalkers (Kings of War army). I've used nurglings from GW, and they will be my Swamp Fangs

      These GW Dire Wolves will be my Swamp Hounds
