Sample Plague Marine

Finally got to play in my man cave!!

So for you today I have a sample Plague Marine. This is how I want my soul rotten marines to look like but in true scale. I managed to convert him in one evening and paint him in the next so if I can stick to this (and if time allows) I should have a squad of five done in two weeks. Unfortunately now that I write that I think it is wishful thinking, but hey you have to have targets right?

All thoughts and comments welcome. All hail Nurgle!!

Femme Militant

A little walk down memory lane for me this week, with a model I painted years ago and a series of minatures that had me so excited I nearly exploded with joy.

The Femme Militant range from the legend John Blanche was, lets face it, awesome! I bought a few and have sold a few and have some unpainted still, which like all things in this hobby I will eventually get around to, but the one pictured below was my first one, Praytorian.

I wonder if Mr Blanche will ever release them again, probably not but we can dream 🙂

The current works in progress

Here’s the current line up of what’s on my bench and it’s all about painting.

So we have The Blight Mother, an Anatomica Praebitores and a 54mm Inquisitor conversion, which has been going on for a while as I’ve not come up with a good right hand yet and it’s rather frustrating. So I’d like to ask all you talented people for some thoughts on what I should do. Parts suggestions and any ideas you would like to share would be most welcome 🙂

Cheers!

The Blight Mother

The descent into Chaos has begun! I hear the nurturing call of the Blight Mother, mistress of decay, chosen of Nurgle, the womb of plagues and she is sitting on my work bench primed and ready for painting.

I have been collecting grey bits for this project for a while now and I finally have enough       ( at least to start with ) for my Nurgle army. This first model is a 3D print of one of my champions, the Blight Mother. She was an experiment that turned out well and I plan to offer her as a model to buy through the Black Earth shop very soon. More on that later.

So for now here’s the first pic of this project, one which I haven’t undertaken in quite a while. Building an army worthy of Nurgle!

Black Earth

As teased a few weeks ago, I have been busy designing a range of scenery and bits. I now have a few items that are currently in the printing faze and once that is done I’ll be able to make the molds and get the models up on our sites shop.

It has been slow as I’ve had to do what people refer to as “proper work” but I feel I have made good progress really and I hope you guys like what you see.

I will be adding more images in the coming weeks and updates on my progress as well as explanations about the various pieces and what they can be used for.

Feed back is more than welcome and yes I will be sending out some samples once I have them made. More on that at a later date, so watch this space.

The Penitent Heart in colour

Well I finnally got some time for hobby action and decided to paint my Pilgryme The Pentitent Heart.

On the whole I’m pretty proud of him, the only thing is the free hand and my need to get more practice in. Painting images on miniatures is a whole different ball game compared to doing it on paper, but with more ideas in the making and more armour to paint I will have plenty of practice 🙂

As for his fellow Pilgrymes they are on hold at the moment, as I find myself caught in an unavoidable descent into Chaos!
