40k Plague Marines, Death Guard Army progress…

11 Sep

Its been a while since I posted anything on my Deathguard Army for 40K, and realised I hadn’t shown off my plague marines. I have taken the same direction with all the models in the army, with very few actual GW unmodified minis. Sure there are a few, but I decided that from the start that I was going to have as unique a force as possible.

I took a few Primaris that I had knocking about and converted them to the cause, and a few old 2nd edition monopose old skool ones as well, and went to town on messing them up. There’s a couple of Ramshackle games minis there too, very nurgle to begin with, but I added a few bits here and there to make them different.

These 3 here are the converted primaris, Painted up and converted, they fit right in to the army. Plus, it saved me cash on buying more plague bois!!

These were the results of converting the old 2nd edition marines, although they required a lot more work and bits, I kinda like them, although I think the icon bearer is my fave out of the two.

These next lot are the standard GW plague marines, which everyone has, another reason to mix in as many conversions as possible. Don’t get me wrong, they look great, I just didn’t want carbon copies of them populating my squads.

Like I said, nothing special, with passable paintjob to match, I’ve given up the need for outstanding painting these days, unless I want to give a model some extra special treatment, I don’t bother too much, I just want to get them painted to an OK standard, and that’ll do for me (they are only rank and file after all…)

These are Ramshackle games figures (forgive me when I say I have forgot the actual model names) but I added hardly anything bar a smoke stack on one as the actual one had broken in “cat” accident while undercoating!! Bolters were added to make them fit.

They fit in very well just painted up as all the other plague marines rank and file.

As for these WIPs, the astute of you might notice they are “Space Rangers” converts. This line is ages old and I wanted to bolster my units cheaply, so these guys are just that. More of them when they are done, as I have a fair few of them to get finished.

Another WIP is this guy. Heavily converted from all sorts of bits and pieces. I like this guy, although he may end up as a personality for the Purge contingent I have planned.

Overall, I like the way these guys are coming along. Yeah, a few are rough around the edges, but its Nurgle, so doesn’t matter too much when ranked up together.

I’ll show you more next time, possibly spawn or some other bits…
