Welcome,

This thread will be an ongoing blog of my various projects for my Death Guard army.

Here are a couple of WIPs of a Chosen champ:

He is also painted now, but I'm just waiting for some Water Effects to dry before photographing him.

Here is my first Terminator so far (minus GS and basing):

Yes...yes I like what I see, the gut plates are a nice touch!

I love the decomposed leg on the Champion. :blink:

Their hand is at your throats, yet ye see Them not; and Their habitation is even one with your guarded threshold."

Very nice, the power weapon conversion on the terminator is really subtle, and the sculpting does the job fantastically.

I wasn't so sure about the unpainted marine, but now that I've seen the paint scheme: these are going to look awesome.
The terminator in particular is fantastic.

Here's the second terminator so far. Still trying to decide about any extra bits or guitar wire. Maybe going into his left shoulder (e.g. an eye of the skull shoulder pad) or perhaps directly into his head? There will also be some green stuff guts bulging beneath the chest plate. Extra bits used are a Flagellant parchment, Ork big shoota barrel, and Chaos Knights halberd.

I attempted a freehand homage to the chalice of maggots seen on some shoulderpads on page 60 of the CSM codex, but it didnt turn out too great. Next time I'll try an hourglass instead.

Some more Chosen are taking shape:

And I have also constructed the centre-piece for my terminator squad - the icon bearer!

Components include Ork shoulderpads, Empire battle standard, Flagellant scythe blade, Chaos Warrior head, Ork trukk(?) engine and exhaust pipes, Chaos Knight spear shaft and arm, and Skaven rat.

I can't decide about the rat, I think it's maybe a bit large - I could simply put a bubbling puddle of slime there instead. Opinions?

I will also be using green stuff to fill some gaps etc.

I've decided to go with some green stuff bubbles instead of the rat, I felt its size took away from the massiveness of the termie a bit. I also thinking of mounting a stormbolter on his chainfist so he still has some wysiwyg ranged power.

Awesome looking conversions mate, I love the pseduo steampunk vibe these guys have going on. Those extra engines, pipes and stacks coming out the back look ace, and really fit the clunky 'chokey' image of 40,000 Nurgle that I have.

Your Death Guard look awesome! I love the use of orky parts & I agree with Vredesbyrd they do have a steampunk look to them! Very original :wallbash: You should so make a dreadnaught, with various Ork deff dread parts, that would really fit in well with these guys :)

That sounds fun, I adapted my current dread from the AoBR one before I'd hit on this Orky, steam-punk vibe:

I think I should focus on models that actually add to my tactical options though, especially as I don't see much role for dreads in my army.

These are really great.
The best part is the bolted-on armor plates that seem to be intended to hold their guts and viscera in. Awesome.

Love these dudes! The scheme is very unique, and even though you get a lot of different colors in there, it doesn't come across as too busy. So many interesting bitz, too. Keep it up.

After a considerable creative block trying to work out how to pose the remaining 2 termies, I've now assembled the whole squad and done the bulk of the green stuff.

- this chap is the least finished

- what's the verdict on the halberd tentacle? It was a bit of an experiment.

I need to finish basing them up, and maybe adding a few trophy spikes (without cluttering them hopefully), and then I'd say they are done. Any final suggestions welcome!

I like it, good job on keeping it well sized, something I struggle with hugely.
The horns breaking through the shoulder pad are brilliant.
