    The PCRC presents: Rehab of 8 Addicts

    The Plastic Crack Rehab Clinic are a group of gamers who spend a great deal of their time in the Grim Darkness of the Far Future.

    Like a lot of gaming groups, we've all got projects that have sat lurking in cupboards or simply in imagination for years. We've decided to run a 'tale of X gamers'-style blog to get back to the roots of playing with cool little armies, gradually building up these backburner projects.

    Our website has a little starmap of the Anton Australis sector, our own little corner of the Imperium, which provides the basis for our games, and gradually develops over time. While a lot of the planets have stories based on our armies and games, a lot of them are minor little plothooks that let us have a story for even little games. The planet Shale is a good example:

    Shale
    Shale was a small desert world covered in uneven dusty terrain and vast seas of finely ground rock. Small scale mining colonies designed to harvest the modest mineral resources were dotted across the solid areas of Shale's surface. So far two larger scale mining operation have been established in the dust seas, but the giga-rigs have both disappeared without trace.

    Various theories have been offered concerning the fate of these constructs, including Demiurg raids, fatal dust-static build up and attack by an as yet unidentified massive indiginous dust serpent. No evidence has ever been presented for any of these theories.

    The fate of Shale and its miners after the Tyranid Invasion is currently unknown.
    This blog will detail 'what happened next' on Shale.

    117th Lamb's World Light Infantry

    Caef Martial Johan Tacitus Springsen

    Caef Martial is a senior officer's rank in the Lamb's World military, above Caef Ordinary and below Pancaef. During the events of the Shale Campaign, Tacitus Springsen was dispatched to lead the 117th Light Infantry, a newly-formed regiment from Lamb's World.

    Capable, if not scintillating in command, Springsen enjoyed a respectful, if not overly warm relationship with those under his command; mainly for following the traditional Lamb's World practise of acting with the lowest ranks' privileges.

    Gatrog Nurgle's Cavalcade of Decay

    The seventh Arch-Deacon of Decay, Faithful of Rust and Grand Marshal of the Smells; just some of the many titles of Gatrog Nurgle, a truly ancient Great Unclean One who has been in the service of Grandfather Nurgle for untold epochs. He has led his Cavalcade of Decay on a merry dance across the multiverse, sowing disease and death throughout the Imperium and beyond.

    All the omens point to his imminant arrival in the Anton Australius sector. There have already been several potent - although mercifully contained - outbreaks of a virulent infection amongst the Autodivination Choirs of Grosvenor 6. The infected have all died within days, their limbs atrophying and brains melting under fevered visions of a sector drowning in decay and whole populations turned mad by a maddening piping. Those psykers mercifully saved under Epsilon level quarantine were only able to scream one name as their bodies were dissolved in blessed acid…Gatrog! Gatrog!
    Gatrog!

    There can be no doubt that the Cavalcade of Decay walks the stars once more, and that the Anton Australius sector will host their first "performance".

    My contribution to this PCRC outing will be Daemons. I've had this army sat unassembled and unpainted in a box for several years now, so it's definitely time to get cracking.

    We're aiming to all have 500 points painted by January, just in time to play some games after Christmas. I'm a bit ahead of the curve (for once), so my 500 points is essentially done. We plan to add 250 points each month, so I'll just get cracking with the next installment.

    Here are some WIP shots of my Daemons. I'll post some finished shots tomorrow. As you will see the army is Nurgle themed. It'll be mainly Nurgle, with a bit of Slaaneshi support further down the line.

    WIP Plaguebearers




    WIP Nurglings



    WIP Herald of Nurgle

    Re: The PCRC presents: Rehab of 8 Addicts

    Shale has an atmosphere that allows humans to breathe unaided, though the low proportion of oxygen in the air leads to dizzy spells and nausea if vigorous exercise is undertaken. This is exacerbated by the thinness of the atmosphere, which leads to optical illusions and uncertainty in depth perception.

    As a result, the CLXX Lamb's World Regiment has deployed with rebreathers that offset the worst effects. The following troopers, drawn from Springsen's Camgrup (command squad), are veterans brought in from the XXVII regiment (the Dogswatch) to help train the new Light Infantry force; and Springsen has granted a little leeway in their equipment and disposition.

    Re: The PCRC presents: Rehab of 8 Addicts

    A Closer Look at the Herald of Nurgle

    I thought post a few more pics of the Herald as I'm quite pleased with him. For those that don't recognise him, he's made from the following components:

    • Forgeworld Nurgle preacher
    • Plastic scythe from zombie sprue
    • Greenstuff face
    • Old metal palanquin of Nurgle







    Lighting Effects

    If you've seen my Imperial Fist log (or read my signiature) then you'll know that I can't resist putting LEDs in models. However it didn't work out so well in the case of the Herald. I switched to a different brand of LEDs for the yellow, but they're just not as bright as the ones I've used previously, so the effect doesn't look that great unless the room is quite dark.




    I was trying to give the impression of an eerie daemonic light illuminating the Nurgling swarm and shining up through the "eyes" on the palanquin. It kind of works I guess...

    Re: The PCRC presents: Rehab of 8 Addicts

    The Coven of the Perfected Flesh

    Deep in the bowls of Commorragh, hidden in the shadows, beyond the ken of the majority of their twisted race lurks the realm of the flesh crafters.
    The widely accepted and 'necessary' function of these biomancers is build and tend the gene vaults and cloning vats that are responsible for the production of the vast majority of the new additions to their race. not only do these produce cloned troopers for the kabals but they also enable the archons and nobles to maintain their brand of immortality.
    Though these are the accepted and appreciated skills of the flesh crafters they are by no means the limits of their abilities, if anything these are their routine functions.

    They may be seldom mentioned by them, but they are patronised by all the great houses that make up the aristocracy of Commorragh. Usually, the price for the flesh crafter's services, though high, is not unreasonable, and can be paid in many ways, from simple funds for the aquisition of raw materials, to the donation of test subjects for the biomancers latest schemes, to the recovery of certain artefacts essential to the flesh crafter's personal schemes and projects.
    If the haemonculi need something they have plenty of patrons willing to recover it for them s part of a payment owed or as credit for the next.
    but something has stirred them.
    The flesh crafters have mobilized, leaving their shadowy realm in the underbelly of the city of sin to sally forth at the head of their legions of clone troopers, servants and all manner of fantastical creations.
    rumour has it that there is news of an artefact of such a nature that the fleshcrafters covet it greatly and cannot trust its retrieval to the kabals for fear it might be lost or destroyed in the vain pettiness of their pointless squabbles.

    Re: The PCRC presents: Rehab of 8 Addicts

    and here is the first glimpse of the dark mistress of pain herself :

    some WIP shots of Freya





    obviously a classic haemonculus brought up to date with a touch of greenstuff and some new kit.

    Freya will be the haemonculus in charge of the first section of my force. Equipped as she is with a hexrifle and venomblade she will be escorted by and entourage of wracks and clone troopers.

    as her colours are already displayed on the wracks, I hope to have her painted by the end of the week. Her clone troopers should follow at the weekend. so watch this space

    Re: The PCRC presents: Rehab of 8 Addicts

    Sweet work all round already guys.

    @Lord blood: I love the colour scheme on those Dark Eldar, plus the awesome GS'ed gun.

    @bob_hunk: The painting on the Nurgle daemons is very old school - I like.
    What is the paint recipe you are using for them?

    @apologist: Those miniatures look familiar, but I can't quite place them... Where are they form?

    For my part, stuff should be gearing up next week. I am planning to start with a continuation my Farsight Tau army (recorded in a previous log), to finish painting the crisis suits, and then to move on to an as yet undecided Air Cav Guard or tank-based Eldar army

    Awesome! I love the pallid skin tones and the way they contrast with the bright red equipment. They really do look like they've just crawled out of a nightmare realm of darkness.

    Very neat sculpting on Freya's hex rifle too.

    Heh, funny you should ask, I've just put a short painting guide for this recipe here on the PCRC website.

    Hopefully I'll have some more to show on Monday. Next up: Gatrog Nurgle the Great Unclean One!

    these are the first shots of the raider for my wracks;





    it amused me to "cross the streams" and have it crewed by some old 'grotesque' models.

    An exciting project. Cool fluff. Quick progress and a lot of variation in what is being produced. Will be keeping tabs on this.

    I don't know the fluff for the Hex Rifle, so ignore this if it's incompatible, but how about having it made from stolen and tortured Wraithbone? So give it a bone colour with a sickly green (or perhaps red) light coming from the cracks?

    Freya looks good in any case.

    As you say, I think 'less is more' for these. I like the replaced crew though.

    Re: The PCRC presents: Rehab of 8 Addicts

    there's not really much of a description of the actual rifle in the book, all it says is:

    "the long barreled hex rifle fires crystal cylinders that each contain a tiny amount of the glass plague that assailed the Dark City in M36. On contact with bare flesh, the hexrifle's arcane payload spreads quickly, turning its victim into a transparent statue with an expression of shock etched upon its visage forever."

    so the ammo should be glass phials or crystal cylinders, but as to the actual rifle...

    ...I think the 'eavy metal team had it painted like a glass assault rifle...
    ...but, I love the idea of tortured wraithbone!

    bone colour with light coming from the cracks is cool,

    I also like the idea of wraithbone with evil hexes burned into it so the wraithbone is sick and going green at the edges that touch the hexes.

    Tortured wraithbone sounds great! What colour will you use between the cracks of the rifle?

    Also +1 on Freya looking awesome – that's some first-class sculpting.

    Regarding the Raider, I think adding too much to the top will kill the clean lines of the sculpt, but have you considered filling the area underneath with lots of chains hanging down? It'd give a nice horror/Hellraiser feel that would go nicely with the wracks – sort of a cross between a butcher's shop and a torture chamber, and jewellery chain's pretty cheap.

    The two with goggles and facemasks are from McVey studios, and the third is from Infinity (I think).

    Awesome!

    After getting such a good headstart on the first 500 points, I suddenly found myself a bit low on hobby time at the weekend, so the next 250 points is still a little more WIP than I'd have liked.

    The Great Unclean One didn't get past this stage...



    And the Beast of Nurgle didn't get much further!




    This cool old Beast of Nurgle was kindly donated to me by a fellow PCRC member. As he has so many extra tentacles he'll probably represent a Beast with Noxious Touch, which combined with the Great Unclean one will make up my next 250 point installment.
