Realm of Chaos – The Death Guard #4: Poxwalkers #8-13 (Contrast Paint Experiment #12.2)

Nurgle Poxwalkers, Zombice Green Horde Orc Abomination

I’ve completed the next six Poxwalkers. At this point I need to either find the missing parts from the two other sets I’ve clipped off the sprue, just use the parts I have and go all Wuduast in converting them lightly and get another set ready, or put them aside entirely and sort out a new set and not lose the parts this time. Here they are alongside the Zombicide Orc Abomination from the other day – all the Zombie-ish figures from May’s painting all together, and also shows how well the Abomination would fit in with the Poxwalkers in my Nurgle force, as well as obviously with a Fantasy Undead force.. This works as a scale shot for the Abomination.

For their clothing I’m trying to keep it reasonably logical – at least for those that are wearing clothing or regognisable scraps. In this case it means work pants that match the ones used in the initial bunch, some scraps of a lab coat, and a pair of white over-pants that looked to me like PPE.

I added a little bit of bloodstain to the PPE pants, as well as some trails on the maggots. These really are brilliant sculpts across the board, with subtle details to the point where you can sometimes see that the maggots are supposed to be underneath their skin or clothing. When I see these, I tend to paint them as though they’re on the outside, since the detail is so subtle it just won’t be seen at all otherwise. Though I certainly appreciate it being there.

The poxwalkers that wear more nondescript clothing like loincloths have just continued to get the dark green ones. No point going bright or too different with them, the way I see it. I went more “crusty” with the rust effects on this batch, though I’m sure they’ll still fit in just fine with the first ones.

The rear view of them. I’m not being as creative as Ann is with them all being individually painted – nor as I noted earlier – Wudugast in converting and kitbashing each model – but varying them by each small batch is a happy enough compromise for me.

And lastly, a group shot of my Poxwalkers so far. Not too bad so far, but there’s still a ton more of them to go…

WAAAAGH! Pt.25: All of My Painted 40k Rogue Trader Space Orks (so far!)

Oldhammer 40k, Rogue Trader 44202/3, RTB02 Space Orks (1988, 1989), Kev Adams

A very simple and straightforward post today for my 25th on the Orky topic – a single pic featuring all of my currently completed Rogue Trader Orks. Not a ton of Boyz by today’s 40k-horde-standards, but I think a decently respectable little group of models from the day. There will of course be many more, bit by bit…
