This time it isn't for those loyalist marines but for an unbound Chaos force. Specifically Death Guard and Nurgle daemons. Always had a bit of a soft spot for the pestilent one and I am surprised to say that my enthusiasm is still strong.
I thought I'd take this late night moment to post some WiP photos. Sorry for the quality. All I have to take them with is my camera phone.
Typhus himself. I decided that rather than the usual green colour scheme that I would go with something more resembling the old pre-Heresy colours. I figure it'll make him stand out a bit on the battlefield. I'm also pondering giving him a terminator bodyguard squad and I may paint them the same colour.
Cholic, sorcerer of Nurgle. This is a very much WiP figure as I can't quite get the face and horns right. He's the fantasy chaos sorcerer figure but I wanted something to look a bit different than the regular models. Somewhere I have the normal 40K chaos sorcerer figure (painted as Emperor's Children I think) who shall be redone as Ebolas, favoured sorcerer of Typhus.
This Helbrute I bought ages ago when I was thinking of doing Chaos marines before. I almost sold him and I'm glad that I didn't. He's the figure so far that I am most pleased with.
Other than these I also have enough figures to build two twenty man Death Guard squads. Mostly regular CSM but with a handful proper plague marines thrown in for appearance. There is also a box of plaguebearers sitting on the shelf to join them as well.
Not sure how I feel about vehicles yet as traditionally the Death Guard are ground pounders whose tanks fell apart centuries ago. I also don't want any of those silly daemon engines. I just can't see the Death Guard utilizing something like that too much.
Tomorrow night is going to be a painting evening to get some of those plague marines done. Photos as I get them done.
