Nugle Horde

9 Stands worth of Nurgle Plauge Bearers to act as minor deamons from the summond deamon pool.  They make a great addition to my Death Guard Space Marines.

World Eater Khorne 

A band of small deamons, of Khorne Warhounds if you like.
These are nice models quick to paint and look the beastie buisness.

World Eater Khorne Army

The second Bazerker detachment, this one will be led by a Deamon Prince, hence only 7 stands.  I have a selection of Deamon Prince models at hoem and will find a suitable one later.

Nice gold face masks for the Princes Detachment
World Eater Khorne Detachment

My first World Eater unit of 8 stands including Champion, Standard and Icon.  I will have atleast 3 of these in the World Eater Army one of which will accompany the Deamon Prince.

The basing may look simple but my Epic armies fight for control of a desert plannet.

Below are the World Eater standard bearer and the Icon bearer, just to add some boost to my Bazerker Detachment

Epic 40K Chaos Nurgle Plauge Blight

The pictures below are my first take on a Nurgle PlaugeBlight, an Epic 40K VTOL.

The first picture shows the basic model that I used for the conversion.  It is a Mech Warrior plastic model of a Hawk Moth Gunship.  It makes the perfect base.

The next shots show the basic paint job I did on it so that the Mech colours would be hidden and I had a plain base to begin with. I used a green mix for the bodywork and then GW Bleach Bone for the engines and weapons.  As this blog grows you will see the theme of 'bone' coloured weapons for my Epic Nurgle army.

A liberal application of Green Stuff, I use pre-mixed MMD Green Putty.  It is quick, simple and dries quite fast.  As you can see there was no real need for 'modelling' the putty just a rough coating and then some tweaking with a toothpick to create the 'holes'.

Once the putty was dry I applied a good coating of GW Devlan Mud wash, I love the stuff it does so much to improve the look of the model.

The final step was a gentle dry brushing of GW Bleach Bone over the bone coloured areas to add a little highlighting.

The model was then sealed with a spray of Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish.

Epic 40K Chaos

 Chaos Nurgle Reaver Titan

This miniture I bought off Ebay, it is one of about 7 I bought from a guy called Desperado, nice little conversions that work perfecty with my Nurgle Chaos forces
Based sprayed white, I used Army painter white and found it a little 'chalky' I think GW gives a smoother finish, however foir Titan size models it works.

The above two photos show the 'basic' paint jobs of Model Color Lime Green, GW Bleach Bone and Model Color Bronze.  The Lime Green does eventually get maksed by a wash.

Now I have liberally covered the 'rotten' areas with  GW Thraka Green wash, works well as a base coat for Nurgle.
Above it the model with a very genorous wash of GW Devlan Mud, really adds the bepth tones it all down.

Here is the finished model, minus the basing as I do not have an appropriate circular base with me at work. 

After the GW washes I simply heighlighted the 'bone' metal pieces with GW Bleached Bone, very simple and quite quick.

I have also picked out the 'sores' and 'boils' that the bless of Nurgle induce.

Overall I was quite happy with this model and feel that the photos do not really do it justice but I was never good at taking pics of models.

Here is one of my favourite armies in Principle's of War 19th Century, Dervish and Fuzzy-Wuzzies, hundreds of them!! I like the PoW gaming system, they work over many periods and handle them very well. 

Here my opponent, Al is using the British Camel Corps against me, that is another army of mine (no decent pics yet).

On the left is Ken, our resident PoW Rules expert, he is our 'go to' man if we don't know the answer!

Sorry for the bright light I will try and get some better pictures the next time they get an outing.

 Above is a Dervish Command surging forward to smash the Colonial Oppressers!!

Here is a Fuzzy Wuzzi Command, these tried to smash in the British flank but if I recall correctly they never made it before the centre broke.

Fantasy Armies

Here are the battle lines drawn up during a demo game at PAW 2008.

The two sides are Hordes of the Pits (Demons) and Beastmen.

I use many ranges including GW, Demonworld, Ral Patha (both of which are no longer produced 'shame'), Fighting 15s and Pendraken.  basicly I will use any figures that fit.  It adds to the 'Fantasy' look of it all.

 These are from the Horde From the Pit, basicly a Demon style army.  The figures used in the army come from many different companies.  The 'Juggars' on the left are used as 'Bohemoths'.

I use a modified Principles of War Ancients rules.  These have not been published but are free in their Yahoo Group.  My home made Fantasy additions amount to about two sides of A4 at the moment.  The basic rules and the fantasy add ons do good a rather good game!  I have uploaded the Fantasy additions in the file section of the Yahoo Group.

Here is a view from the Hordes Of The Pits 
looking at their Beastman opponent!  The temple was one of the battle 'objectives'.  In the Beastman line you can see  Warhammer Minators, who are giants at this scale and Demonworld Bear Riders.


Welocme one and all.

I have been encouraged to make this blog to share my love of wargaming and show my wide ranging intetests and how easily I get distracted in my projects!!

I have been playing with toy soldiers since I was a child but got into wargaming seriously just over ten years ago when I joine Illford Wargames Club.

At Ilford I was able to indulge in my main love 15mm Fantasy Mass Battle by playing and helping to develope DBF, thanks Madan, Pete and all!

However as I have said I am easily distracted and have a wid and varied wargames collection but only a few projects completed.

I'm now at Plymouth Association of Wargamers (PAW), a very friendly club for anyone in the area, and play a wide range of periods.  I also paint figures for other club memebers from time to time.

I will post some pictures of my armies and those painted for other soon.

My 'main' projects for this year are

6mm Sci Fi, Epic and DRM
10mm WSS Reichs Army
15mm Alexandrian Macedonian
15mm Late Mycene (for Alan at PAW)

So as you can see quite a list so far........

Check back soon for some eye candy.
