I am afraid I've caught a nasty case of filthy nurgle-itus!
I couldn't resist the new Death Guard Models, I was really inspired by the old Deathguard.org site of Ryan Powell, and thought i'd be really cool to do a CSM force along similar lines in the old legion colours, unfortunately this never really happened but the awesome new range gives me this opportunity. I wanted to put these guy well and truly in the heresy era, so that I can use them for both 30k/40k i've adapted the base models slightly by de-nurlging them as much as possible. I wasn't a big fan of silly belly mouths and overly 'deformed' tentacles, as I see these as more 'possessed' sort of features.
It'll be a welcome change painting up a highly weathered and dirty army after having to be extra neat and clean with my Third Legion pretty boys! Dirty, scruffy Death Guard are just about as far as you can get!!
Anyways, here are a few WIPS of the first of my plague marines/ heresy era tactical squad
I plan on getting some of the new Deathshroud and Blightlords to build up a small zone mortalis/ foot slogging list, manly using the Dark Imperium set and a few other bits n bobs.
