My Nurgle palanquin:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The angle is a bit weird, but the Nurgling pile is pretty tall (around 3cm, so a bit taller than an inch).
I just need to fill the seams with greenstuff, sculpt a few things here an there and add a few final nurglings.

Ideas and criticism are always welcome. ;)

How are you going to do the back of the seat paint-wise? It looks very un-busy compared to the base level of the model I guess, and unlike the front of the seat you haven't got the actual lord to stand out against it.

I've made some wood grain on the that plasticard panel (both in front and in the back), but it's hard to see it in the pictures since they're a bit too bright.

But I could use some ideas...
But I don't want to add too much details either, since simplicity was always a Nurgle-y thing in my opinion.

I guess you could use the paint job to make it look more stained/mouldy/licheny?

I've actually remembered that I have an unassembled box of chaos knights and that they have this icon:




So I've replaced the icons... This one is much bigger and covers most of the free space on that panel.

Just a small update.

I've managed to get 20 Bloodreavers (Khorne marauders) and 5 Blood warriors (Khorne warrriors) for 12 pounds.

A glorious day. ;D

Did you need to donate blood for the blood God to get such a sweet deal?

Not yet.

That's what I'm worried about...
The Gods of Chaos work in mysterious ways.  :P

Go Jubal! ;D

Do you have any specific project in mind? Or are you going to go and sculpt like you're a block of butter melting on a hot August day? :P

I don't know - I have an ambition to try sculpting a vehicle for my Sontaran squad, and I'd like to try a couple more 12th century figures from my period of study. We'll see :)

I vote for the 12th century figures, would be cool to what you study in miniature people format.

It's taken several years but at long last I have 30 Shoota Boyz (click for higher resolution images):

Head coverings and accessories are the theme as you've no doubt guessed. Yes that is a pink tiara at the back and there's also a rather obscure reference in there too.

Whilst taking the photos I took the opportunity to snag a few promo images for my products too:




As I really need to get some good photos on the front page of my site soon. The way I have it setup at the moment is a bit of a shambles!

Now I've started on an Ork Nob to lead the unit. Top hat, I'm thinking. Perhaps a waistcoat too.

They look great, good stuff!

Well, I have now been introduced to Charlie Chalk and feel slightly less sure of my sanity than I did a few minutes ago.

Cheers! I've made a start on the Nob for them!

I love Charlie Chalk. I still have a VHS tape from when I was a child. This may explain many things...

I pasted the message from another forum. Each system has to introduce a bit of variety for reasons best known to the gods. Anyway, it was a URL tag  ;D
