So I really wanted a defiler for my army since I really like the new changes our codex had for them, however gw were completely sold out of them and getting hold of one proved nearly impossible. I then had an idea, there was that really cool death guard artwork with the strange walker that looked like a malignifier with spider legs.
I then went about trying to make said walker. Here's is my attempts using a AOS spider as the vase with a malignifier hacked up into segments to fit the back abdomen with some tyranid, bloat drone and other bits to try give it an organic fused with metal look.

I love the malignifier model but dislike the idea of a static terrain piece that just stays in one place as it doesn't fit my army playstyle or how I view death guard. Instead fluffwise this is am attempt by a plaguecaster or warpsmith to give a malignifier legs and a demonic presence to run it at the enemy

It's quite nice as long weekend here due to public holiday so getting lots of painting in for a change getting the 7man plague marine squad all painted up. I know it's not smart gamewise and the experts all say min maxed plague marines squads better but ive been collecting Nurgle for years and just feels wrong not including nurgle's sacred number. The whole army even will have exactly 7 units in it

A Blight Hauler painted up as well as an army shot of the whole army partially painted and assembled. Just waiting on ranged weapon arm for the Contemptor and some of those technical basing paints to base whole army.

So I finished converting up a contemptor Dread using some skaven parts to arm it with chainfist and Conversion beam Cannon
Contemptor are amazing models I do miss I can't take butcher cannons on them anymore they were great, trying out conversion beam cannon as I thought using a skaven warp lighting cannon would look cool for it don't care if volkite the better option

Your stuff is amazing mate but all that resin makes me shudder.

Please paint the INCREDIBLE Defiler. It reminds me of a time when I was thinking of converting a heldrake from the WFB goblin spider... Keep up the good work!

Welp it took nearly a year but I finally painted the Defiler I converted when I first started this topic
I'm not the greatest painter but hope I did him well, may need to touch up some detail I missed/ messed up but like how he looks
The Death Guard Defiler known as "the Corpsemaker" stands ready to bring death and Decay to the enemies of Nurgle

The army looks great and it's come together nicely - I think it really needs the metallics doing, though - a dark or corroded iron might work? Orange rust would stand out on the green and yellow, or a bronze/copper colour?

Painted up the Contemptor, I tried metal trim on a couple of test models but prefer the more bone like trim instead also far easier to paint, I don't really know what I'll try doing next maybe some daemons like a plague bearer or great unclean one

Been a while since I've done anything more with them but have started converting a Death Guard levithan for my army
Just some liquid green stuff to fill some of the gaps. So going to love it if they ever do a plastic levithan for the heresy update as plastic ones would be so much easier to convert.

Have played a couple of games with my painted 1k force and have found both the defiler and plaguecaster to do really well, haven't tried a game since AOC has come out so once I can get the levithan plus a drone and another plague Marine squad assembled and painted will hopefully try and get some more games in

Edit: oh yeah nearly forgot here is a converted Putrifier
