None of your treasure is safe!

 Welcome back to the Vault! I had intended to start painting some Plague Marines over the weekend, but the weather conspired against me and I was unable to prime the models.  Not to be undone I decided to chip away at one of the myriad of other projects; in this case my D&D bestiary.

I had been very kindly gifted some Wiz Kids pre-primed miniatures for my birthday and so some of these jumped to the top of the painting queue. First up is Rusty the Rust Monster.

Pestilential Painting: First Outbreak

 Welcome back to the Vault. Usually at this point in the blogging year I would have been working towards Octoberfest and writing about the process, culminating in the Punditry Posts and Tournament Report. Alas the tournament has been cancelled and with the local area heading into Tier 2 lockdown even games with friends at home are not possible.

So this means my hobby focus will continue on modelling and painting, and I've written my first Death Guard list to guide my efforts.

Pestilential Painting: Myphitic Blight-Hauler

 Welcome to the Vectorium! This week's hobby time has been spent in further dalliance with the Death Guard. Having previously painted a test Plague Marine I thought I'd try the colour scheme on a vehicle. I decided to paint up one of the Easy To Build Myphitic Blight-Haulers as these are comparatively small models (for vehicles at least).

Mortarion's Musings

Hello Venturers and welcome back to the Vault! October is normally a busy time on the gaming/hobby calendar with both Octoberfest and SELWG to look forward to. With social distancing in effect this Autumn looks as if it will be a much quieter affair.

I've been thinking about what to share on the Vault going forwards. In the four years I've been blogging I've completed a new 40K army to a respectable point level (the mighty Carcharodons Astra), and added various units to other forces (including my Dark Eldar, Imperial Guard and Grey Knights). I've also completed various smaller painting projects including terrain and kill teams/warbands for skirmish games.

I've never completed a Chaos project; I've dabbled with the odd test model but never committed to a force of Heretics and Daemon Worshippers.  I'd like to change that, and have decided to paint up some Death Guard as my autumn/winter hobby project.
