Typhus the Herald of Nurgle

Typhus is easily one of the coolest characters in the CSM army.   He's also nasty on the table top and looks great. I didn't spend a lot of time on him but enough to get him looking decent enough to use.  My hobby time is pretty limited these days so I've taken to spending less time on individual models so that I can still manage to get armies painted up.

I need to get a better pic of his scythe.  I used the typhus wash and some rust pigments and I think it turned out fairly cool looking.

Plauge Toads Counts as Spawn with Mark of Nurgle

I loved these toads as soon as I saw them.  So cute and cuddly.  The make excellent spawn of chaos with the mark of nurgle. They are a joy to paint and have so much character.

Khorne Daemonkin Lord on Juggernaut

The CSM Lord on a Jugger is really a tough character in the khorne daemonkin codex.  Riding with blood crushers or spawn gives him plenty of protection and they are really fast.  I wanted to make a model for the character.  I bought a box of WFB skull crushers to use.  I would call this a conversion because I really didn't do anything to it.  I just swap out a few items to make him look slightly less fantasy and slight more sci-fi.  Its nothing fancy but it was quite and easy and will serve the purpose I set out for.  Once he's painted up he should fit in nicely with the rest of the murderous band of homicides.

I also took this pic with my phone so its a bit crappy.  I'll get some better ones once the painted has been started.

One of My Favorite Traitor Guard Units

This is one of my favorite units.  The bits go together so well.  The arms and legs are from Victoria Lamb and the torsos are, of course, FW.  They are not complex by the Vic bits look so good with the FW bits.  The arms and legs are from the Penal Legion squad so they have shackles around their hands and feet, chains dangling from them, some are missing their shoes, etc.  I'm not sure why I painted them completely different from every other unit.  I guess just to be different.

Lost and the Damned Mutants

I was scratching my head for a bit trying to figure out how to make some decent looking mutants for my Lost and the Damned list.  I searched for bits to buy but there really weren't a whole lot out there.  So I just took lots of stuff I already had and cobbled together some mutants.  I reasoned that they didn't need hands since they would surely die on the battle field.  So I took to chopping their hands off and replacing them with spikes, blades, clubs, flails, etc.  I used lots of bits from lots of companies and various kits to threw these guys together.  They don't all match but that's okay, you can't expect a bunch of mutant freaks to have time to co-ordinate their outfits.  These guys don't even have hands for crying out loud! :)

I made a few guys into chaos 'arco flagellents' in case I want to run a radical Inquisitor Lord.  I already have the model just not all of his posse after I liquidated some stuff.  Here they are though.

Here's the whole gang from the other figures I painted up for this merry band of degenerate freaks.  A few blokes were hiding out when I took the pic so its not quite the whole gang but pretty close.  If you look closely you will see a flamer or two.  Mutants can't get a flamer but I thought I may use these guys as conscripts or renegades as well so I might as well model and paint up a few flamers for them; just in case.

Counts as Ratling Snipers

In my burst of painting mutants and zombies I threw in a few other units that needed to be painted but I just hadn't done it yet.   One of those units were my counts as Ratling Snipers for my traitor guard.  They mashed together from all sorts of bits; Empire Free Company, Ungors, Kroot, Catachan, CSM bits, SM bits and lots of other misc items.

The guy holding is gun standing up right is the boss.  Ratlings don't actually have one but I wanted to make a model as if they did.

Gors as Lost and the Damned Mutants

I wanted two units of 30 mutants plus a unit of 30 zombies.  I decided to be lazy on the second unit of mutants and just use Beastman Gors.  I had contemplated some alternate heads and arms but monies a but tight so I didn't want to spend the money on it.  I already had these figures laying around.  I need to get 10 more though.

I still need to convert the mutant boss as well.
