40K Deathguard Army: Proxy Poxwalkers (Probably) : CP Models Plant Creatures.

17 Jun

So, more Nurgley Chaos goodness with this possible proxy unit of poxwalkers that I painted. Now, this lot were originally from CP Models (apart from the front model, which I’ll address in a bit) and are from their sci-fi range and are intended to be B-Movie type plant creatures.

(These models can be found here if your interested: CP Models Plant Creatures)

So, seeing though I had a unit of 10 of them laying around, I thought it might be a good idea to press them into service as a sort of fleshy, diseased and pox ridden shamblers, kind of overtaken by a chaos zombie mushroom/plant based contagion. However, I’m not too sure if they’ll make the final cut and instead be replaced by zombies and GW poxwalkers.

These models are pretty low on detail, so I had a hard time trying to get what I wanted out of them. That’s why I say probably they’ll end up as proxies. They do look OK when massed up together, I had thought they would be like the infected are slowly being turned inside out and becoming a steaming pile of gore, pus, flesh and tentacles eventually as the infection takes over. Which is why I added this next model to the unit.

This is a shoggoth from Black cat bases range. I’ve had this for years, lurking in the back of my stuff, just never really had a need for it until now. I’d like to think it’s what the rest would end up becoming, sort of like a chaos spawn flesh mound.

I’m in two minds about it. On the one hand, the are quite disgusting, but on the other, I’m not 100% happy with them. I know they are not fabulous paint jobs, but they were speed painted, so didn’t get a load of time spent on them.

Anyway, let me know what you think, and if it’s a good idea to use them, or maybe I should give them a few more washes in some extra gore…

THE WALKING DEAD: Season 4, episode 2: Infected

24 Oct

In a strange way, art has been imitating life in my family, indeed most of us are actually infected (plus kids with chicken pox and temperatures), and not only do I have an unspecified knee injury, but I have been struck with a mystery flu, not unlike the gang over on this weeks TWD.

If you haven’t seen this weeks episode, check out Tube plus for it.
