Alternative demon prince for my army

My recent project is Multiple Small Unit (MSU) Demon army for Warhammer Fantasy and I am planning on using two demon princes. I already kitbashed one Tzeentch prince some time ago for use with chaos space marines, now rebased for WFB. I needed second one though and it is meant to be a Nurgle one. Since I am not a big fan of way the Hurgle models look in general, i decided to look for something alternative. Amazing range of models from Enigma miniatures provided me with good options. I purchased their Caernus model on ebay some time ago and now decided to use it to represent my Nurgle prince. Some plastic eagle wings and green stuff later and here we go:

Growler creature review

 

Every orc&goblin player (well, or at least big majority of them) love their Mangler Squigs. At the same time most of us cringe at the though of spending 36 pounds for a model that most of the time dies very quickly and on top of that is made from Failcast ( which for me personally is a big no), so search for alternative models started pretty quickly.   Some time ago I spotted on Da Warpath forum pictures of a “Growler” creature sculpted by Juan from Spain. I really liked them and not long after that they became available to buy!

I ordered myself a couple from the few options available and they arrived very quickly. They were not packed that great, but this is a very solid resin, not some brittle excuse for it, so the bubble wrap was enough 🙂

First of all- practically no flash. Very clean, nice casts, lots of detail, no bubbles- top job in my opinion! Assembly was easy and after some greenstuffing (not a lot, just some gaps near jaw) they are ready to be primed and painted.

There are more options for the creatures, I only got two of them (I liked the armoured look).

If you want to get them, those are the details and prices:

contact email: Juan.abella@gmail.com 

15€ Each.
With the possibility of choosing among all parts.
You get 1 body, 1 mandible, 1 left leg and one right leg.

You get the 4 models (All parts are different).
4 bodies, 4 mandibles, 4 left legs and 4 right legs.

For 4€ more you get enough metallic chains to mangle them or 2x extra 60mm round bases.

Postage 5€ for Spain, 10€ for Europe, 15€ worldwide.
Comes with tracking code to check your parcel

All in all it was a great buy and thoroughly recommended!

Grot Mega Tank (nearly) finished

My Gort Mega Tank was (nearly) finished for the super heavy tourno. Still more painting to do, as I just got it to the acceptable standard plus need to make some more weapons for it to have all options possible (FW supplies two of each, which kind of limits the options a bit).

All missing parts arrived by courier from ForgeWorld as promised, so very impressive customer service I have to add.

I have to say I absolutely love that model. In game is bit random, but added to a theme very nicely and survived fair bit, whilst killing good amount of enemies.

Kaptin’s head snapped off after upper turret fell on the floor and I found it only after the tournament, so I had to improvise. Luckily “red army” grot head from MicroArt Studios fits great.

Scratchbuilt Grot Tanks WIP

So few weeks ago there was a super heavy 40k tournament, type of event that I absolutely love as it gives me a chance to do some conversions and painting for my Orks. This year I went with armoured company theme for them and since I wanted to use my FW grot mega-tank, I needed grot tank mob as well. Using my ork bits box for that purpose I managed to put together 5 little tanks, including one driven by Kaptin (rerolls for the random move distance are helpful plus he gets to choose two weapons, so extra rokkit comes in handy). They were great in the tournament, as most of the time they got ignored due to more dangerous targets being on the board and this way they managed to kill fair bit of stuff.

 

Painting is only basic, so not finished yet by all means, but you get the idea :
