Greetings Nurgley Friends. Today I just have a quick post for you with a couple of completed models (and one not so completed).
First up is a Spawning Point and Dwarf model from Super Dungeon Explore. I picked up the box for this brand new on Ebay, the aim of which is for me to paint half of it and my girlfriend to paint the other half, hopefully fairly quickly so that we can play a few games. So far I'm in the lead however as she hasn't picked up a brush yet.
I have also begun work on the Paladin figure (only painted the basecoat colours so far). I am really impressed with the SDE models, they are lovely figures to paint, and I'm pleased how well the colours are coming out on the white primer.
I have also finished my test model for my Dark Angels (just in time for the new codex!) I'm pleased with the colour scheme I have gone for here, as due to the Army Painter Angel Green spray I should be able to shift these out fairly quickly (I only do a subsequent wash, re-layer and edge highlight after that).
Next up on my paint station will be my test model for the Deathwing, which is currently being primed with Army Painter Skeleton Bone spray, and which I can't wait to get working on.
Until next time, keep the pestilence flowing in the name of Nurgle.

Hello and welcome back faithful warp travelers to Nurgles favored cupboard. As you may remember a few weeks back that I had been working on something that was a surprise for you all.
I was shopping some time ago and came across a paint it yourself bauble set. Admittedly this is aimed for kids and I think it was pretty cheap. I looked at it and thought that if I prime and paint them with my model paints they will turn out rather well. I finished they last week and I think they have turned out rather well.
I will be painting another 5 cultists soon and I will have pictures posted up for you all as soon as they are done.
Until then may Papa Nurgle bring you something nice tomorrow for Christmas!

Hello and welcome back to our favored cupboard of Nurgle. We have returned after a long traverse of the warp. It is also our 100th post, so I hope with my offerings of my first 5 painted cultists will suffice to Papa Nurgle.
I have painted my cultists to fit in my my Chaos Marine Army. The colour is a darker version of the Red Corsairs. The colour scheme is black and burgundy with a trim of brass. The models where pretty nice to assemble and paint. The only problem was the one cultists with bare chest. His front did not seem to clip on well and I had to try and sort it our with some liquid green stuff.
I am currently painting something for the current festivities I wont spoil the surprise, but they should be done this coming week. I will then be starting on another 5 Cultists with Autoguns.
Until next time I hope that Nurgles blessing fall on all you faithful followers of the lord of Pestilence.

Greetings all you pestilent friends. Recently I have become a bit bogged down in all the Skaven Slaves I have been painting, and so decided to have a break. This coincided nicely with the start of the NFL season. It got me thinking, I am a big Cleveland Browns fan (unfortunately as there isn't much to love at the moment), and I wondered if I could create an Orc Blood Bowl team with the look of the Browns, but looking as Orc-y and as mean as ever. So here is the 1st member of the Cleaver'land Greens:
One Lineman down, once I have a few more I will probably add numbers to the metal plate on his back, to help designate his position. I shall have to see what other Orc/Ork bits I have lying around and plan the rest of my team, I'm thinking a couple of Black Orc Blockers, a goblin or 2, and hopefully a troll in there somewhere also. I know Mighty Simo has an almost complete Norse team, so hopefully if I continue building the team there could be a game or 2 in the new year, maybe even on Superbowl Sunday.
That's all from me for now, just a quick post, then its back to the Skaven Slaves, and a test model for my Dark Angels :)

Good afternoon and thank you for joining us again at Nurgle favored cupboard. Now firstly I will apologise for being away for some time now, but some as you know I have had an entire house to decorate and let me tell you it is not fun. Most of that has now been done and the time I have had I have finished my crashed Aquilla lander.
I purchased some Vallejo gloss varnish to paint over the glass sections once I had finished protect coating the piece with Army Painter's Matt Varnish spray. I think the end result has turned out rather well and I am pleased with the 'glass' effect I achieved The only thing I don't like is the 'smiling faces' you will see in image below. It almost as if a lone guardsmen survived the crash and is beaming a smile outwards from the glass. 'Haha! You didn't kill me. The emperor is watching over me!'. Also as you can see below I ended up going for a golden Aquilla rather then the white one I was deliberating over.
On another note I picked up my new shiny Chaos codex today. The sultry voices from the warp are already calling me to read it entirely and decide what to buy from the new stuff, which will be hard because it all looks amazing! The new style of codex is awesome though and it well worth the extra cost. I have one of the new fantasy hardback books and they feel more sturdy.
Until the next time you grace Nurgle's favored cupboard, may Nurgles blessings fall on you.

Good evening worshippers of the Plague Father and thank you for joining us again. Today I would like to offer up a simple alternative to the small flying bases from Games Workshop. I have made this as I have broken more than my fair share of these on Destroyers, Hammer Heads and Crisis Suits.
I was going to attach a magnet to the plastic rod but then I saw a set of Geomag toys on ebay for a couple of pounds which came with 36 rods and a large selection of ball bearings. The rod itself is a hard plastic with a rare earth magnet stuck in each end so you could easily make something similar yourself with a bit of dowel and a sunk magnet though with the cost of magnets alone I liked them.
I started by priming the rod black, as the ones I have are a mix of red, blue and yellow. I stuck this onto the plastic base with super glue as I wasn't sure how poly cement would behave with this type of plastic.
To attach it to the destroyer in this case I used a flat headed screw, if you go this route remember to check they are magnetic before attaching. You could easily swap this out for another magnet or a piece of steel rod which would work nicely and could be made to sit flush with the model if you attached it inside.
I have used this stand on my Destroyer Lord in a couple of games now and is has served me wonderfully compared to the standard ones I used to break on a regular basis.
Until next time keep spreading his word to every corner of the universe.

Greetings pestilent friends. I have been slow with my painting recently, but have finally finished my Warlock Engineer.
I wanted to reflect the twisted technology possessed by this character by using a Warlock-Augmented Halberd, and so followed the guide in White Dwarf no 362 for painting crystalline surfaces (Eldar power weapons), and swapped the blues for greens (namely snot green and scorpion green in the old gw colours). I'm really pleased with how the effect turned out, as well as the model as a whole.
I also had time to paint my poisoned wind mortar team, and went for a swirling warpstone infused gas look for inside the globes.
Next up on the painting agenda is a blood bowl orc for the new team that I am hoping to make. I have simply used a spare model from the assualt on black reach set and chopped off his weapons and posed him in a position where he looks like he is about to smash into someone. Here is how he looks so far:
I plan to add more AoBR orks for linemen, some WFB Black Orcs, a few goblins and a stone troll. Early days yet though as I also want to get started on my Dark Angels from Dark Vengeance and make more progress on my Skaven. Until next time folks...
