What I did on my winter vacation

Hello Everyone!
I just got back from the "Wine Country" of Missouri on a little break with the Mrs. I had a great time and am back, rested and rejuvenated with some new models and projects that I am working on.

First off let me show you my 2nd finished rhino:

 As you can see this is very much a copy of my 1st rhino I did in the Nurgle style.

Here is a side by side, the new one is on the left. I am very happy with how they both turned out. They even kind of look like each other! Imagine that...

Now on to my Exalted Plague Champion of Nurgle.

As you can tell he is still a WIP. I needed a simple, cheap HQ to lead my forces until I can get my version of Necrosius done. At 90 pts with all of the bennies of a plague marine AND lightning claws I think he will be more than enough to lead my guys.
If you were wondering, he is just a champion from the standard Chaos Space Marine sprue. I clipped and repositioned his hands so his gauntlets would match up while he was doing his "Karate" pose. Other than that it was just a bit of greenstuffing and plasticard to get his lightning claws and shoulder/boot detail. I hope to have some more completed photos by the end of the week.

Finally, I will show you a quick glimpse of my 3rd project:

Thats all I have time for today, I got to get ready for work :(

As always, questions, comments and constructive criticisms are always welcome.

Have a good one


  1. That Nurgle champion looks awesome... those holes in his armor make me feel a little itchy...

  2. Everything with that fungus on it makes me feel itchy. It's very hard being your friend, sir.

    Nice work, can't wait to see the champion all finished up.

  3. Thanks muchly for the kind words. I am glad that I took the time to do the shoulder pads and foot guards the way I did rather than using my previous test models methods(just a bunch of the "sacks" stuck all over a CSM). It'll take more time but I think it will be cleaner overall and give them a more distinct look.

    As for the itching, I would suggest tough actin' Tinactin. It works well enough for John Madden.
