The pictures below are my first take on a NurglePlaugeBlight, an Epic 40K VTOL.
The first picture shows the basic model that I used for the conversion. It is a Mech Warrior plastic model of a Hawk Moth Gunship. It makes the perfect base.
The next shots show the basic paint job I did on it so that the Mech colours would be hidden and I had a plain base to begin with. I used a green mix for the bodywork and then GW Bleach Bone for the engines and weapons. As this blog grows you will see the theme of 'bone' coloured weapons for my Epic Nurgle army.
A liberal application of Green Stuff, I use pre-mixed MMD Green Putty. It is quick, simple and dries quite fast. As you can see there was no real need for 'modelling' the putty just a rough coating and then some tweaking with a toothpick to create the 'holes'.
Once the putty was dry I applied a good coating of GWDevlan Mud wash, I love the stuff it does so much to improve the look of the model.
The final step was a gentle dry brushing of GW Bleach Bone over the bone coloured areas to add a little highlighting.
The model was then sealed with a spray of Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish.
Here is one of my favourite armies in Principle's of War 19th Century, Dervish and Fuzzy-Wuzzies, hundreds of them!! I like the PoW gaming system, they work over many periods and handle them very well.
Here my opponent, Al is using the British Camel Corps against me, that is another army of mine (no decent pics yet).
On the left is Ken, our resident PoW Rules expert, he is our 'go to' man if we don't know the answer!
Sorry for the bright light I will try and get some better pictures the next time they get an outing.
Above is a Dervish Command surging forward to smash the Colonial Oppressers!!
Here is a Fuzzy Wuzzi Command, these tried to smash in the British flank but if I recall correctly they never made it before the centre broke.
Here are the battle lines drawn up during a demo game at PAW 2008.
The two sides are Hordes of the Pits (Demons) and Beastmen.
I use many ranges including GW, Demonworld, Ral Patha (both of which are no longer produced 'shame'), Fighting 15s and Pendraken. basicly I will use any figures that fit. It adds to the 'Fantasy' look of it all.
These are from the Horde From the Pit, basicly a Demon style army. The figures used in the army come from many different companies. The 'Juggars' on the left are used as 'Bohemoths'.
I use a modified Principles of War Ancients rules. These have not been published but are free in their Yahoo Group. My home made Fantasy additions amount to about two sides of A4 at the moment. The basic rules and the fantasy add ons do good a rather good game! I have uploaded the Fantasy additions in the file section of the Yahoo Group.
Here is a view from the Hordes Of The Pits
looking at their Beastman opponent! The temple was one of the battle 'objectives'. In the Beastman line you can see Warhammer Minators, who are giants at this scale and Demonworld Bear Riders.
