The Hero Forge: A 40K Hobby Challenge

 Welcome back to the Vault! It's time for the next hobby challenge! It was about this time last year that I participated in the Tale of Four Santas project, and we thought it would be fun to get another project going over the autumn and winter months.

This 40K challenge is entitled "The Hero Forge" and comes in two parts.

Pestilential Painting: Blight Haulers

 Welcome back to the Vectorium! I've been struggling with a horrible cold this week (thanks Papa Nurgle), but have recovered well enough to slap some paint on a model. In my push to reach 2000 points of painted Death Guard I wanted to add another Daemon Engine, and given how happy I've been with Stuart the Blight Hauler's performance I thought he deserved a playmate.

Meet Frank aka Ol' Blue Eye.

Pestilential Painting: Spreading the Sickness

 Welcome back to the Vectorium! Octoberfest is approaching fast and the Death Guard are mustering for war! I thought it would be fun to create some themed Objective Markers to use at the event. The Death Guard have a secondary objective called "Spread the Sickness" which thematically involves corrupting objectives so what could be more appropriate than some pools of filth and nurgley grossness! 

First up are the chewed up remains of an Emperor's Spear and some sort of larva emerging from the pool having feasted upon the yummy marine bits nearby.

Yes Dave. I went there.

Pestilential Painting: Poxwalkers

 Welcome back to the Vectorium! I've taken advantage of my weeks holiday to paint up the next unit for the Death Guard; a batch of Poxwalkers. I have to confess I was not looking forward to painting these but I actually found the process enjoyable. 

Painting the models allowed me to examine the sculpts in more detail and they've grown on me (like a Nurgley rash); there's quite a lot of character to them, and not an overly insane amount of detail for what is ultimately a chaff unit.
