Some conversion work, I'm happy with the head bearer:
Looking great so far! I'm loving the head bearer, are those Skaven parts? (The high five brought a smile to my face btw ). What's next for the army then?
You make good promotion to stormvermin box.
mrtn, just wanted to ask: did you use forgeworld bitz before?
I always wanted a Death Guard warband, but unfortunately I have only a few old plague marines (several havocs and a pover fist guy). Now, when I've found your very well inspirational blog I reworked the whole idea. FW kit seems to be a good alternative to current GW's range. But I never used Forge's models.
What do you think about them?

Don't worry about your spelling it's good enough.
Today I took a relatively bold decision and took a painted and converted rhino and ripped it to shreds. The painting was good enough for table top, but the conversions were totally over the top, with a big skull in front, skeletal arms sticking out to the sides and a zombie graveyard in a corner. My army just isn't like that. Fortunately it's been glued with super glue, so a lot of stuff could be cut or ripped off.
Here's a picture of the carnage:
Yeah those skeletal arms look a little OTT. I can imagine it looked like something I would've modelled when I was fifteen.
Nice use of the plastic arm on the head bearer, good to see a Chaos Marine whose bare unmutated arm could actually fit inside his armour. The high five pic is funny, and sure shows off how much cooler your painting style has become.
@Venomblood: your written English is top notch, better than most natives.
I love the use of old bits such as the 2nd ed flamer dude, there must be an elephant graveyard somewhere of those guys all lined up bolters pointing left
Here's a "Before":
And here's a couple of "After", or at least "After converting, before painting":
While I'm not a big fan of tanks , the "After" version seems much more brutal.
Very intriguing usage of bitz, as always.
Coming along nicely.
The hi5 made me chuckle.

Didn't know this log existed. Subbed for now, and I'll have a look through later.
What other logs do you have?
Currently: Ghostly Brettonians and Mordheim
Here's a nice vid that might give you a few ideas on painting your DG:
Laurent "The Boss" Koscielny - More Awesome Than Batman
This one I didn't convert myself, I only fixed a few things later, so if something's looking good or bad, it's probably not my work...
This one I mostly made myself, with a notable exception of the mutated door.
And an armyshot. I just noticed that I only started painting these a month ago, so fairly quick work if I say so myself.
I tried to add orange weathering to the bottom of the rhinos to tie them in with the infantry.
Nice army! You have managed to make to different editions of models to match perfectly!
Wow, that's an excellent army shot.
I've been following this for a short while now, and like the style of the finished units, mixed editions, different weapons and some conversions here and there.
After finishing those cool rhinos and putting up the army shot I'm compelled to just state how nice this army looks. I'm looking forward to more updates.

I'd say all that work in a month is extremely good work! And they look great too! Brings back fond memories of classic colour schemes from 2nd ed actually. Very good choice of contrast colours.

MD: You got a christmas gift?
House: Yeah, 'cause I worship Santa. Or wait, is that Satan? I always get them mixed up.
I've been constructing obliterators, there was one unbuilt and one with the start of some conversion in the army, so I've finished those. I also felt the need for a third one, so I converted the terminator you got with White Dwarf at the release of 5th ed.
but I think it lacks one small detail: a small skull icon on the knee pad
