    It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG



    Hello all and welcome to my second stab at a long running project log filled with completed works and tons of progress. That's the plan anyways.

    And what better way to celebrate my thousandth post than to get the ball rolling?

    Here's a pic of my WIP game room, affectionately called Deep 13. Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans will recognize the reference. Pooka, my Familiar, is overseeing the construction of my game table.




    More to come, thanks for looking

    Here is a 'before' pic of my Beasts of Nurgle. I've been using them as Counts As Spawn, I'll upload some pictures of the completed figures soon, I think there are some in the Warhammer Painting Support Group if you're interested.

    * Sadly, it looks like the pics were lost in the Great Warseer Crash of 2016, I'll post them here at some point this weekend.

    Pictures of the completed Beasts of Nurgle will arrive this weekend, most likely tomorrow.

    Progress on the game table, here's a pic of it assembled and sealed

    Better late than never, my gaming group actually got together over the weekend and ate my free time, no complaints here!

    The completed Beasts of Nurgle:

    And two more shots:







    I am happy but a bit embarrassed to say that these are the FIRST completed figures I have ever painted, I've been into this hobby since the early 90's. Now, I have a lot of painted stuff floating about, just not completed, based, and sealed. I intend to correct this folly.

    Next up, two squads of Plague Marines. Thanks for looking!

    Plague Marines and lots of them! I absolutely love these old sculpts and had lurked on eBay for a couple of years to amass them.

    The first squad with some paint:




    I have to take care of those plasma coils and hit the wooden bits on the older guns with some light grey, they don't blend in as much in person.

    Nice paintjob, and I always loved those old Beast of Nurgle models! Where did you find them!?

    The 2ed/3ed design of the PM is really nice, I used the same era of models for my PM. Just something really cool about them.

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    Thank you! It was super simple, spray base, drybrush, details, and two washes. I'll post a link to the thread with the instructions with my next update.

    I really like your Plague Marines! That's a new take on them!

    The Beasts of Nurgle were bought in a lot from a friend who probably bought them new, I really wish he had more of them! The lot included some of the above Plague Marines and a heavily converted Predator as well. I recently switched phones and am working on getting pics of everything on my new one, I'll get a pic of the Predator in my next update.

    That style of Plague Marine is absolutely iconic, the hoses, damage, and WW1 style helmets, just brilliant sculpts. I just wish there were more variations but no complaints here. They're in a different class compared to the newer sculpts where it was considered an improvement to smear Green Stuff on a regular Marine and call it a day. :confused:


    More pics tonight or tomorrow, Plague Marine Melta squad and Demon Prince, maybe more if I get out of work on time.

    Plague Marine Melta Squad as promised:




    And a second shot as it shows the Sergeant off a little better:





    Here is the tutorial I've been using, very effective and pretty quick. A good way to get my feet wet and in the swing of things, a big Thank You to Latro_ for sharing!

    * I made a small change and used Army Painter German Armor Spray as a base, it complimented the Rotting Flesh (Yes, I still have some of that left) very nicely.

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    thought i recognised that style of plague marines! To be fair i stole the idea from someone who was doing a load of plague bearers quick!

    I like your ones more than mine, they pop more, mine were a lot darker.

    Kudos on the old school models, i'm a bit jealous you have some i dont have!!!

    using those old school beasts as spawn is genius

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    Thank you! I actually redid a couple of them because they turned out too dark, those washes can pool up quickly if you apply too much. As it stands there are some dark spots on some of the legs that I've just decided to live with.

    Some of those old figures are a real %#@#$ to acquire, there are a fair few that I still don't have myself. I'd like to do a squad of just the old school 2nd edition ones.

    The Beasts as Spawn was super obvious, it was played out like: These figures are awesome, I must include them in a list, what do I need? Easy!


    Speaking of old school, here are a couple of shots of my Nurgle Demon Prince, Thrakazog:






    Hmmmm. There's nothing quite like posting pictures online that really reveals just how much work a model still needs.

    Thank you! A pretty straightforward conversion, just some Tomb King Carrion wings and Greenstuff to hide the gaps / add some pustules.

    I have a ton of the old, metal Plaguebearers but not nearly all of them! Well done!

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    Not a whole lot to report from this past weekend, I did manage to apply two coats of paint to the tabletop though:





    Any suggestions on a protective coat that isn't glossy and won't get sticky in the the heat?

    There are other works in progress that I really want to share but they aren't quite ready yet, hopefully soon. Thanks for looking!

    A quick tease of what has been distracting me of late. Your one hint is that it's inspired by one of my all time favorite movies. I really wish GW had used it more heavily for reference during the design phase...

    I'm loving your plague marines, Garanual the Black! For a minute, I thought that the melta squad sergeant was an ork conversion. These old school models are amazing. I cannot wait to see more!
    Then suddenly I saw it. With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slide into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds. I think I went mad then.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the encouragement!

    Coming up next will be some Plague Marine plasma coils, I found a technique I like and picked up the paints yesterday. The Plagues are my test subjects as they can be a bit sloppy and still look ok. It's in their nature after all.
    I'm hoping to sit down with them one night this week, I'll post some pics.

    @ LostCarcosa25: I am a big fan of your signature! Oddly enough, the movie I had mentioned a few posts up (with the blurry pic) was inspired by a Lovecraft short story. Any guesses?

    Thanks! I am thinking "Nyarlathotep", "The Dreams In the Witch House", or "The Whisperer In Darkness".
