Pestilential Painting: Plague Burst Crawler Part One

 Welcome back to the Vectorium! I now have 2 units left to complete my initial 50 PL Combat Patrol; a Rhino and a Plague Burst Crawler. I've decided to tackle the Plague Burst Crawler first as I've really been looking forward to tackling this model (it's one of the reasons I decided to start a Death Guard collection in the first place).

Look at the beast; a great big slab of armour that'll grind towards the enemy whilst lobbing shells at it's cowering foes from that massive mortar! Oh and it doesn't need a crew on account of the angry Daemon bound into it. What's not to love?

The Planar Winds

Welcome to the Vault! Today's post is a new subject for the blog; 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons. I've been involved in a campaign for a year or so now and really enjoying the play experience.

One of the aspects of 5th ed I like is how overt extra-planar influences have been baked into the core game; Celestials and Tieflings (extra-planar lineage species) are available for players, and Celestials and Warlocks have a variety of multidimensional bloodlines and patrons to choose from.

Pestilential Painting: The Second Wave

 Welcome back to the Vectorium! One of the great things about a long Christmas holiday is the opportunity to focus on a bigger hobby project or two. This year I've kept focus and painted up the second Plague Marine squad for my Death Guard Combat Patrol. I'm pretty pleased with the models and so here's a bunch of pictures documenting my efforts!

The unit is 7 models strong (that being Nurgle's number), and I've focused on spamming Plasma Guns in the squad (2 on line troopers and one on the Plague Champion).

Happy New Year from the Vault

 Happy New Year everyone! This time last year I was blogging about my gaming and hobby activities during 2019; how different 2020 has been.

Lockdown and social distancing has meant there has been a lack of face to face gaming, however I've filled the void with plenty of painting and gaming/hobby activities via the wonders of the Internet.

Without the regular tournament events in the diary my painting has been driven on the basis of whim and fancy, starting with a number of fantasy models and culminating with a mini-40K Death Guard project.

Pestilential Painting: Foul Blightspawn

 Welcome back to the Vectorium! This week has been interesting for Death Guard news; the Codex is delayed until the New Year, but GW have been previewing some of the updated rules. I won't go through these in detail as there's plenty of analysis on the Web. In the main these look pretty good aside from the disappointing changes to Disgustingly Resilient. I'll have a minor vent about that at the bottom of the post so feel free to give that an ignoring if you wish*.

I have finished painting the Foul Blightspawn model, and I'm pretty pleased with the end results.

Pestilential Painting: Foul Blightspawn Work in Progress

 Welcome back to the Vectorium! Hobby time has been scant recently but I have managed to slap some paint onto a couple of models. I've been focusing on the "Elite" entry of my Death Guard Combat Patrol, the particularly vile Foul Blightspawn,

Doh! Bad lighting and washed out colours
