After my bout with real life disease I have actually finished the whole of the Nurgle half of the Blightwar during my recovery. I managed Horticulux, the ten Plaguebearers, three Nurglings and three Plague Drones, and I have managed to throw in a Feculent Gnarlmaw as well just for fun. I'm going to take them down to the Rotherham GW store tomorrow for the Malign Portents painting competition. As part of my #365challenge I was wondering how close I have been getting to having at least one of each Maggotkin Unit. I'm well on the way to achieving this, although my issue will be finding the funds for two Great Unclean Ones and also getting two more of the Maggot Lords. 

Here are the Plague Drones in their finished state:

So I took these down to the Games Workshop in Rotherham today for the first month of the Malign Portents painting competition. I was impressed with the quality of the other entries. Having been down for Armies on Parade and other events I haven't been blown away by the standard, but this seemed to be a little better. There was a very nice Moonclan Grot force, some good looking Khorne and Ironjawz forces.

Month 2 is a Harbinger so I'd better pick up the Darkoath Warqueen!

Love those plague drones! I was annoyed to find that 1 in 3 of them don't fit on the bases or pegs they provide, as the pegs aren't long enough! Have you got them permanently attached to the base or are they removeable?

The Nurgle models look great! The only thing about them is they seem to not pop that well when placed together. The work on the green seems to be lost a bit when you stick em all together. Maybe some more yellows or oranges would help? Just adding critique since you asked for it haha

I also really love the night goblins with the skin tone. They remind me of mole rats.

I drilled out the holes with a 5mm drill bit and super glued acrylic rod into them. I then did the same into the playback on the base. It makes them very secure. Wings are pinned as well as I have seen them pop off very easily.

I've got some of the Pusgoyle Blightlords to paint up next so I'll certainly look at varying up the greens on those. They also have a few more areas where you can put in extra colours. I agree when the plaguebearers in particular are on the bases they don't jump them! 

I was a big fan of the goblins too. I'd like to have seen a few more of them!
