The Story of “Lumpy”: A Rotten Inspiration for a Nurgle Daemon Prince Conversion

  One night not too long ago, while I was painting some Warmachine Khador infantry, I got suddenly inspired to get back to my love of the 40k Nurgle CSM / Daemons faction. I had lots of bits recently sorted and recently purchased some FB Vargheists for some CSM Spawn conversion, and the wings were super cool and rotted looking. I had bought some bits to build a Tzeentch Daemon Prince as well (one of my many back burner projects… oy…) and then a flash of inspiration hit me. What followed was a marathon night of converting and building into…

Chaos Space Marine – Nurgle Rhino Hatch commission

A recent request came in through this blog to do a custom commission “Nurgle Rhino Top-Hatch” similar to the ones I did for my Nurgle CSM army. The request came from a posting of a Facebook battle report and link to some pictures that were took at a local gaming shop >Heroic Knight Games in Issaquah, WA. I spent a lot of time getting my Nurgles custom-built and I’m happy to share the love! Check out the details of the bits used and the pics of the top hatch – all hail Father Nurgle!

Chaos Daemon Prince conversion – done!

Well this guy has been a long time in the making. I finished painting this guy in the winter of 2013 and he sat on the shelf waiting for the weather to get better before I sealed him with clear coat. Now he’s done (well not 100% done, I need to put some metal flake on the rusted parts but that won’t take long) and he’s ready for the battlefield. I started this guy a long time ago with progress shots here and I’m glad he’s finally gotten completed. He’s one of my favorite conversions. Some pics below of this…

Tyranid Barbed Heirodule!

Well then. My blogging on hobby and gaming related stuff has started to follow the pattern of this little gem of my collection – a little too long in the updating! I bought this Tyranid Barbed Heirodule in a Forgeworld purchase WAAAY back in mid 2011. It’s been sitting in it’s package, untouched, in my hobby projects box for over 3 years. 3. YEARS. I finally decided to get around to working on this, after I’d put together a large amount of my Tyranids, took a 2-year hiatus to focus solely on Nurlge CSM’s. I’m as of December of last…

Battle Report – 40k 7th Edition first look – Tyranids

Well 7th edition of 40k has been released recently and the 40k community and the internets have all been abuzz with the update – what works, what doesn’t work, and how it’s going to impact the meta. I’m excited about the changes and as a big fan of 6th I was looking forward to seeing what 7th was all about. However, being recently in a hobby rut and needing some inspiration to get my 40k back on, my good friend Chris and I agreed to give the new 7th edition rules a whirl and see what all the hubub is…
