Hellpit Abomination to Daemon Prince Conversion...

Some of you may have seen these photo's over on Dakka, but since I am completely done with the conversion, thought it was time to post it here.
So, as some of you may know, i am working on several armies these days... one of them being a Death Guard inspired army. When I saw the Skaven Hellpit Abomination model come out

I immediately thought of Nurgle and how that might be a good conversion for a Greater Daemon of Nurgle, so bought the model and decided to give it a go...
first up are some picts of the model in its infantcy.

Really took alot less green stuff to make it work than I thought it would.
Next up are some of the first go at painting it with the addition of wings...

Not too bad, but the more i stared at it, the less i like the look of the legs.. plus, i really don't like CSM Greater Daemons (no wings, no eternal warrior) so decided to try and cut the legs off and make him a bit smaller and closer to the Nurgle Daemon Prince model. I am now happy with it, here are some of the finished picts.

and finally here is a pict of him compared to the Nurgle Daemon Prince.

Thats its for now, hope you all enjoy...
next up is another command squad for my AdMech army made up of melta toting RT Robots!!!!

The Freaks Come Out at Night...

So, here we have another army that I've never played with, and probably never will... My 7th Edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle Night Goblins... Sans 2 Shamans that have gone and hid under a mushroom somewhere...

I realize that I have way more interest in painting armies these days that playing most games.

And... like most things I'm involved in, this army was done on the cheap;
I got the Giant as some sort of prize in a tournament when that box first came out a few years ago
The 2 spear chukkas, the fanatics, and the wolves were picked up in trades.
All the infantry is BFSP, and hence, very cheap.
The snotling pumpwagon was an Ebay purchase that needed to get dripped and stripped.
I think that the only thing that I actually purchased at a retail outlet for this army, was the Big Boss on the Giant squig, which is a really fun model to paint.

Now that I've got it done, I've decided that I don't really want to learn 8th edition fantasy, so I'm going to sell it... On to new armies.... Currently being worked on are several epic armageddon forces, Dark Eldar (which is soon to be my only remaining 40k army), and a sci-fi skirmish game called Wreck Age that me and my friend Matt have been working on. (shameless self promotion).

I really would have loved to do one of these goblins in a wide brimmed hat, and maybe another one break dancing... Maybe next time!

Discos don't open till after dark
And it ain't till twelve till the party really starts
And I always had to be home by ten
Right before the fun was about to begin
Crowds of people lined up inside and out
Just one reason, to rock the house
But in the day time the streets was clear
You couldn't find a good freak anywhere, 'cause

The freaks come out at night
The freaks come out at night
