Who doesn’t love a good Nurgling? Well, apart from Tzeentch?

And here is a host of Nurgling butts for your delight.

Space Marine Captain – Master of the Arsenal

Yet another blast from the past, this time and old metal space marine captain. This chap has been waiting for a paint job since they were first released, but here we are. If memory serves this chap is the captain of the 3rd company, which is the Master of the Arsenal. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

Classic (ish) Harlequin Troupe

I continue to work through my Pile of Glory (Shame…). These metal Harlequins have been on the pile for err.. well… so long I am pretty sure their weapon load outs aren’t actually legal anymore. Anyway, cool models, and the inspiration for the current Harlequin plastics.

Typhus – Herald of the Plague God

When Mortarion and the Death Guard were first released, I pretty much bought every model. And they stayed on the pile of shame for the most part. I plan on painting Daemon Primarch Morty soon, so wanted to test out a scheme on his wayward son Typhus. Lovely model, not sure about the Cloud of flies, very nearly didn’t include them.

Dark Elf Cold One Knights

First unit of actual troops added to my Old World Dark Elf Army. Some Cold One Knights. I did want to do some Black Guard, but they never seem to be in stock.

Vashtorr the Arkifane

Another bigĀ  mini done, on a roll! This time Vashtorr the Arkifane. Yet another model that had been on the pile of shame that I am finally getting round to painting.

Mortarion, the Reaper Primarch

Hot off the heels of Horus, I thought it was best to finish off Mortarion. I have had this model since he was released, so I thought it was about time.


I tried to avoid going over the top with any dirt or damage to him, as I wanted him to reflect a time he was slightly less nurgleified (new word?). The temptation to do some freehand here and there, especially the cloak, was strong, but he was meant to be the primarch who didn’t like embellishments too much, so I managed to resist.

I know people will disagree with me, but whilst I think this is an amazing sculpt, much like the Horus model, I just found a lot of the detail to be slightly off due to the casting process. Horus was much better, but even then, the details seemed a little dodgy in places.

Horus Ascended

A year ago my wife bought me Horus Ascended for my birthday (I know, she is amazing). So after sitting on my pile of shame for too long, and given the final book of the Horus Heresy is out, it was about time I painted him.
