Very cool - love to see all the new built minis! I really like the Death character with the bell - looks familiar somehow... lol (like a Skaven)

They are awesome! I may have accidentally bought (and built and primed) another 2 of each the new characters... oops?!

Today I have been busy!!

Work on the bloat drone
Image

And started all the poxwalkers
Image

And made very good progress on the characters! Though my plaguecasters 'cloud' is more flamey than I wanted... I used the wrong shade wash

I'm especially impressed by the armour on the Drone and the "incense"-cloud on your Lord! Your Deathguard Army is going to look awesome, I bet!

These new Nurgle models are gorgeous aren't they. I've always been tempted by the stinkiest of the chaos gods. I think it's because my original warhaming buddy collected Nurgle back in the 90s.

You've done a great job on these Dheiti, they really look the part.

Very nice! The way you toned down the brightness of the Plaguecaster's cloud worked really well.

Thanks both! :D

Yeah some nurgling green drybrushed and athonian camoshade washed all over to tone it down a bit worked quite well!

I might still redo that bit though.... base coast it light grey then do that to it... hmmmm

The death guard models are sooo cool. Everything you'd want in new plague marines. You're paint job is looking nice and sharp.
