A bit of background...Id started off this army a couple of years back, and got a few units to various levels of finality but then decided to change my colour scheme.

A few of these units I started on for my vow last year, but never got them finished as ended up going through a lot of stuff in my personal life (and hadnt painted since).

 

However with the forces of nurgle now running rampant in the proud streets of Edinburgh, my forge has has enforced full lockdown and got round to enacting reinforcement protocols. Have started this thread to make sure these new demands are met smile.png

 

 

 

Onagers

 

I've finished up my last 2 onagers, and just have a bit of highlighting/basing to tidy up with these. Getting the one to have a sassy leg cocked up on a rock was interesting, might shift the rock about a bit though so his leg is more central on it (it currently looks a bit like itd tip the rock over)

Kastellans
 
Andy and Ollie were mostly done, but have finished up a bit of basing and swapping their old reds for new blues

Servitors & Daedolosus/Alpha conversion
 
I picked up a squad of genestealer cultists to make some servitors with (i run a breacher maniple). These along with various leftover breacher/vanguard parts have made some decent servitors.
 
I then used some other leftover parts with the mining laser from the GSC box, plus parts from sisters of silence, datasmith, infiltrators and vanguard, to make a 'counts as' daedolosus

HQ
 
The Daedolosus counts as join my other HQ units which have been finished up (apart from the blue techpriest - hes missng an arm and a few other bits).
 
My white techpriest has his pseudogenator buddy along with him too (this guy was made from leftover negavolt cultists parts, which ive been using to make electropriest conversions)
 

Theres also an engineseer in there i finished basing/highlighting. He's made from a leftover datasmith.

Infiltrators

 

I have 2 of 3 infiltrator squads pretty much finished up bar details and final basing. The 3rd squad is half done

Breachers
 
These guys have taken aaaaaaaages. Probably taken over a year on and off in varying forms. Both 6 man squads are 75%+ there now though, mainly basing and a fe weapons to go (some annoyingly went missing - am still missing 1 arc rifle)
 
gallery_65541_12634_8078.jpg
 
gallery_65541_12634_139692.jpg
 
 
 
Although a lot of these were already started, im really pleased with where Ive got them to in a week of painting, its been way too long since i last picked up a brush smile.png
 
Theres also about 40 vanguard/rangers on my desk in varying degrees of completion, and a squad of electropriest conversions hopefully coming soon.

I'm quite a fan of your tech priest and servitor conversions. The Pseudogenator is also quite creative too.

Cheers!  The GSC servitor idea I totally stole off someone else from this forum, cant remember who though (so thanks fellow priest!)

 

First greenstuffing id done in aaaages so was pleased with how they came out (especially the extra hood/robe parts I did - they could certainly look smoother but still learning)

 

The psuedogenator is basically 3 negavolt cultists faces, stuck back to back on a ball of GS and then lots of little mechaterndirls from the same kit. I then added the space marine arm/hemlet for grimdark purpose. Was really fiddly and spent way too much time getting everything to sit right but its a fun little model ive had a few comments on at games smile.png

Like the colour scheme and you did good work on the lighting effects.


A challenge is a challenge till it is beaten, then it is a victory.
The greater the challenge the greater the victory, so I challenge the impossible.

One skorpius ready to ride some dunes.

 

Need to find where Ive stashed the gunners and get them added inside at some point (I previously kept them off so I could switch it between the tank version, but now never use that)

That really dark coppery colour is interesting, it looks good with the white and blue.

Cheers, yeah its a nice contrast. I used to have them painted more metallica red on the stripes etc but found the brass was lost, but it stands out nicely with the blue.

 

For those interested the copper metallics are screaming bell (heavily drybrushed over black), then a heavy wash with agrax earthshade, and a highlight with hashut copper. The blue is simply the fang (my other army is SW so had loads of this kicking about!)

 

 

So this evenings been productive too. Managed to find the parts for the dunerider gunners (and a ladder) so built/painted/added them to the skorpius:

 

gallery_65541_12634_223098.jpg

 

gallery_65541_12634_254604.jpg

 

 

I then finished off the final layers and basing on my third infiltrator squad. Just some very small detailing left to do on these ninjaboys (the photos are really annoying me that the helmet lenses on the leaders base arent painted hah). Ended up doing the taser goads after the light went and im not 100% happy with them so may redo tommorow in better light.

Finished up some detailing on my third infiltrator squad (happier with the goads now after a glaze).

 

And then have finished my first (of 2) squad of vanguard

It's good to see the spoils of your down time. Everything looks incredible! I've been strumming along trying to keep pace weaving in and out of my several different armies. I compliment you on staying on just one. Looking forward to seeing more.

Ive never really liked the electropriest models, and a box of 5 is pricey.

 

Of those adepts who join my explator fleet, not all complete their studies

Some skitarri are found wanting upon the battlefield, or return as the only member of their squad.

Those in need of repentia are placed into the electrocult, where they redeem themselves through holy combat in the omnissiahs name.

 

 

Basically what you get mixiing up negavolt cultists with leftover skitarii/rustalker bis to proxy as electopriests msn-wink.gif The light is going so hard to get good pics of these, but fairly pleased with how menacing they look. Theres a lot of bad greenstuffed robes going on but the paintjob has hidden these alright!

This week ive finished up my breachers and a few other bits and pieces.

 

1850pts done!

 

Super pleased as this is the first army ive ever 'finished' in nearly 20 years of playing on and off. Quarantine has its uses.

 

I have a couple more squads ready to go to get this up to 2k points, but need to wait until a few extra bits/basing materials are available to order again.

 

Ill get some proper photos done when I have better light,  but for now, a cider and praise to the omnissiah:
