Assembling the puppets – Sorceror of Tzeentch and Tzaangor

In a rare show of progress, I have assembled the Tzeentch Sorceror and spent some time on adding a few starting models to the warband. Here is a converted Cyclops from Heresy Miniatures.

Joining these two heroes will be the forces provided by the Silver Tower. I have begun by assembling 3 of the Tzaangor to test paint.

Now, to paint them!

Nurgle day! More Oldhammer Plaguebears and Palanquin

It’s Nurgle Tuesday and so I have painted some more unique Nurgle models. This time I’m back onto the Plaguebearers. The scheme is pretty simple, so I did another 3, bringing the total to 6 unique Plaguebearers. I have 19 different models so far, as follows:

1997 Plaguebearers

1997 Plaguebearers

2000 Plaguebearer command

2000 Plaguebearer command

The original Plaguebearers

There’s also one later generation of metals and the current plastic ranges, but they’re not on my radar yet.

Oldhammer Pestigor

Continuing the challenge to paint something Nurgle every 7 days, I’ve done a tester piece for my Nurgle Beastmen – aka Pestigor. This is the first classic Beastman I’ve painted and it’s certainly very different from the plastics. I wanted to combine rusty metals, with pale clothing and ill-looking flesh.

I quite like the idea of working reds into the low points to make it look like the skin is almost bleeding and very unhealthy. I will experiment more with this on the other Pestigors I’m collecting and hopefully have a very putrid looking group of beastmen!

Oldhammer Minotaurs

Trading has been fruitful. I’ve amassed quite the pile of Minotaurs and Beastmen now, so I am starting to work on assembling and painting the models!

Deciding how to paint models that are almost as old as myself is quite intimidating, but I am eager to get to work.

Here are the first 9 I’ve assembled. They’re mostly Bob Naismith sculpts, with a few I am unsure of. I’m loosely planning on using the “lords” as champions for each unit, so here they are pictures in 2 units.
