Here be Plaguebearers

I keep finding more of these blighters! I mentioned last week that I have 19 unique sculpts for Plaguebearers so far, so I thought I’d try and work my way through them as quickly as I can to get a full unit ready. If I get that far and haven’t got bored, then I have 2-3 repeats of a lot of them and there’s a third generation to dip into to round off the unit sizes.

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

2000 Plaguebearer command

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

Nurgle challenge part 4, Oldhammer Plaguebearer

Continuing my Nurgle model every 7 days (or as many as I feel like painting, as 1 a week is too slow for me!), this week I present a… no… 3 Plaguebearers.

I’ve also been faffing around with a new camera app on my phone in an attempt to improve photos. I took all of these using the app and a pair of lamps. They look better, but I zoomed in too far for the resolution and they are a bit soft as a result, so it is my mission to keep improving the photo-taking skills I clearly lack!

Oldhammer Great Unclean One

As I continue to paint up a Nurgle model every 7 days, I present the next completed model.

Here’s a classic Great Unclean One, what we call Oldhammer now. This beasty is over 20 years old and yet has so much more charm than the modern sculpt(s).

I’m going to be working on some Plaguebearers next and because I’ve been painting much faster than one model a  week, I’m going to work on some non-GW proxies in between.

Sculpting Oldhammer Daemons – Flamers

Some classic models are easy to acquire, others are rare or expensive. In an attempt to get back into sculpting and fill some gaps in my army, I’ve decided to try and create my own versions of Oldhammer models.

I got some new styluses for Christmas, so here’s the obligatory tool shot.

I’ve been working with the blue stylus (smallest) and a basic clay shaper. You tend to get comfortable with a single weapon rather than swapping through the options!
