Jarvis We're back in Hardware Mode...

Plastic-crack is a helluva drug - I don't even remember buying this stuff!

Anyway, playing with fortresses and crazy siege scenarios are right up my alley so I've started some new projects and rekindled an old one:

Phase 1 of the defense network waiting for paint (3 defense lines, 1 comm, 4 lascannon batteries, 3 quadguns):

So a project I've been 'working on' for years is finally getting some love; I've been converting the old Warhammer castle for 40k and now the time is right.  I used extra sprue bits to mount these turret guns so they can still move; next I have to add the stone-wall around the gun placement with textured plasti-card and green stuff. This is just a glimpse of a very early WIP stage:

Yeah, so where have I've been for the last 2 months? The Nurgle Chaos army is still (very) slowly progressing but my attentions have been almost entirely focused here:

Amera Vacuum Molded Terrain WIP - Phase 5!

Another quick terrain offering. It's not complete yet; still needs moss, grass, sand etc, but I'm pretty happy with how it looks so far.  As you can tell, I love this Amera stuff!

For US shoppers this Amera terrain is not quite a bargain but still comparatively cheap.  With some love these pieces look pretty good and the simplicity of the mold makes them very durable as well...

Some HQ and Elites awaiting paint...

Well this is admittedly a rather lame blog post but for my own sake to keep things moving here are some unpainted minis hah...

My Nurgle Chaos Lord with some small conversions; basically the bolt pistol, the mace (The Black Mace), and banner post and the backpack. (Raging Heroes mini):

My Nurgle Chaos Sorcerer with some conversion work; the cloak and weapon details etc...:
Same dude on a smaller base; I'm still trying to decide between better game-play or the base I prefer (the 40mm):

My Great Unclean One (Ultraforge mini):

And finally the ForgeWorld Dreadnought/Helbrute with shooty arms:

Getting stuff done? ...the slow crawl of papa Nurgle.

Well this is usually where most of my armies come to die; at the cleaning flash and pinning stage.  But I am determined to finally make some headway on this... Here are the infantry for my 1850 CSM-CD Nurgle list:

They are not much to look at yet... after this I have to build 3 rhinos, a predator, a soul-grinder and a fat-boy GUO.   The Lord and Sorcerer are basically waiting for my bases to arrive.

Which head?!? (CSM Nurgle Sorcerer WIP)

I'm torn between these two heads; one (the plastic head) looks more like a proper sorcerer and sort of matches the theme; the other (the metal head) is just awesome. This blog doesn't generate too many comments hehe but if anyone is out there send me a clue...

Head 1:

And here is Head 2:

Amera Vacuum Molded Terrain WIP - Phase 4!

Yeah this blog stayed idle for over a year but I'm back... here is a piece of Amera Terrain ...the crashed ship/chopper.  I plan to sand down the moss a bit once it dries but I didn't want to wait before I took pictures... so here it is:

Chaos Space Marine Revival...

So that enormous pile of unbuilt Chaos is finally getting some love.  I've only gone as far as opening all the boxes, cleaning a little flash, and working on Lord and Sorcerer conversions.  Nurgle has been my God of choice since back in the early 90's, when I first read through the 'Lost and the Damned - Realm of Chaos' book.  It has taken me that long to get started...

Here are my Veterans of the Long War:

My old Chaos Lord built many years ago; I have already stripped and cut him to pieces for my new Sorcerer, but here is the before picture since I have nothing else interesting to post:

I'll be sticking to Nurgle throughout this army with likely some Chaos Daemon additions, since I already have the models.  All of my models are old, and metal, even the Daemon Princes - boo.  I'll be rolling out mostly infantry and no flyers to start.  Anyway I hope to have some more progress to show soon!
