Got the plastic Chaos Lord Terminator at the local hobby shop recently. I decided to do my best to come up with a terminator lord that has Nurgle-themed, whether I decided to give him the Mark of Nurgle or not, I wanted him to fit with the army.

Not quite as mighty as it was in 4th edition, but still a big gribbly to be reckoned with. I put together 3 Carnifexes lately – all of the “screamer killer” variety.

I’d like to get some better pictures up here as well at some point. I like how the wings turned out especially. I am happy enough with them that I’ll use the same pattern on the wings for my gargoyles and my shrikes, when I finally get around to finishing those guys up. I got this guy done in record time, just finished the clear coat on him before a…
I’ve finished my first set of Tyranid warriors paint job, and very pleased with it.
