About time I made a new log. So it`s back into my bitz box as with my last plog, the Damned Stirlanders (VC) trying to save a few coins and reduce the amount of bitz as much as I can. That means a lot of old minis and a few new ones, kit-bashing, and converting.
With that said, here`s the obligatory work station pic:
I know...it`s a right old mess but when inspiration gets me I start going through boxes and picking out sprues and bitz I want to use. Took me two days just to get off the floor as it was the only place I had space after the first few evenings.
As for obligatory pet-pic, don`t have any at the moment, but I do have kids, three of them, between the age of 2-6 so don`t have the time for pets yet! It`s amazing I have any spare time, lol!
Okey, with that out of the way, let`s get to the matter at hand. I`m going for a Night Lords themed army, mostly because of (in my eyes) the epic Knightmare plog, Re-Inventing Fear, The Knightmare Project. One of the very first plogs that really caught my eye, but I hadn`t thought about for many years until I stumbled on this plog, Night Lords 18th Battle Company. So a new colour (blue) that I`ve never painted before as base colour on an army, and a ton of inspiration from those two plogs (and of course a lot of others plogs but you get the point..).
I won`t be doing any "count-as", at least as far as codexes go, I`ll be using the CSM codex.
First up you have a quite standard, out of the box CSM unit:
I really dig the missile launcher-, icon bearer- and aspiring champ minis. I just did som minor conversions but I wanted them to stay as close to original as possible. Will be some more stuff added, severed heads, skulls, etc.
Here`s my fav conversion so far in the army:
A Chaos Lord, not count-as Abaddon. Scaled up and refined. Still some work to do on the lower legs, but getting there.
Per now I`m in build-mode so I`m struggling along with painting another CSM unit than the one I`ve shown so far. I hate showing my PiPs so don`t expect any of those but plenty of WiPs and hopefully completed ones as well.
Not the most frequent one to update, but I hope that some of you find the time to comment, ask or come with ideas for further conversions and builds. I plan on doing some really cool conversions so we`ll see how that goes.
Until next time!
