This entry is basically just to give a couple of group shots of the 500pts. 

I don't think the 20 plague monks I just finished are going to win any beauty prizes. 

but I'm certainly pleased with the way the force is shaping up so far. 

I'm Excited about the next deadline. 
Which is to add another 500pts to the whole thing, and should be announced during Today's hand in. 

I think next on my list for this is 
Verminlord Corruptor
Plague Furnace

8 Giant Rats or 2 chaos familiars 
which should be 500pts on the button adding to this lot for the full 1000. 
also considering adding a bunch of Nurgle demons if I add anything to go for 2000, maybe some plague toads. 






So Deadline 1 had me painting Nurglich (Epidermis) and 10 plague censers. 
Model count 11 
Deadline 2 currently consists of

20 plague monks (140pts)


I know, but I am getting there slowly, I think this round may have to just block, dip and highlight. I hate painting non-character infantry. 
plus I still have 20 bases to do too. 


Fen beast (Beast of Nurgle) 60 pts. 


this is him not finished, but after his first dip in the quickshade. 
A bit more work and definition and he will look less like a sh*t demon, although, kind of appropriate for a beast of nurgle. 


The model itself is a Malefaux, bad Juju mire golem. 


This takes my total model count up to 32. 
which for a skaven army, isn't too bad. 

I was thinking for the final deadline, given we will have another 500pts to play with. I might go for a Plague Furnace, A verminlord and a couple of chaos familiars. 

the next hand in is this coming Monday, and I will pop up another entry to show you the finished results on these figures. 



it's no secret I'm a fan of Skaven. 
Recently, I became involved with a painters challenge at a local wargames club. 
This challenge has been an interesting way for me to get back into the swing of things in terms of painting, as I tend to have periods of inactivity between picking up a brush. 

The Idea behind the competition is simple enough, pick an army, build towards 1000pts in manageable blocks. 
score points on how much of it is painted per deadline. 

the first deadline caught me off guard, as I only really got involved when there were just under 2 weeks of the first deadline to go.
owing to the fact they make up the largest chunk of my unpainted lead mountain, I chose clan Pestilens. 
The theme I chose was the early days of pestilence, during the great migration, when plaguelord Nurglich (the first) pushed his way into Lustria and the new world. 
That is before he got his tail handed to him by the lizard folk and their winged serpent god. 

for this theme, I decided I would make some Incan-inspired path bases. 

My first 300 points:
Nurglich on great Pox rat (using the warscroll for Epidemus) 180pts

10 Plague Censer Bearers. 120pts 


I met the deadline, had everything based, everything painted and got 15points in the painters challenge, coming second to the person who got everything painted and won the best painted model\unit bonus. 

The next deadline is the 19th of June and the challenge is to add a further 200pts to our army. 
for this I have chosen: 
Fen Beast (Beast of Nurgle Warscroll) 60pts

20x Plague Priests 140 pts


Wish me Luck.
