So I’ve been making good progress on my bloat drone as my primary goal for completing Azazel’s Painting Decemb-uary Challenge by the end of January. But hubris waxes eternal with us Eye of Terror types so I thought I’d add a few more things to the challenge. If I succeed then I’m the Glorious Chaos Lady of Painting and all shall worship me and despair (to paraphrase another Chaos Lady) and in the unlikely event that I fail then I’ll cast all of the blame on my minions and/or vague tzeentchian machinations of conveniently shadowy, anti-painting entities.
A unit of plague drones and some nurglings in the priming box. I’m not sure why that kroot slipped in trying to pass himself off as a plaguebearer. As for the nurglings my plan is to stretch the three bases they give you in the Start Collecting box into six bases by using some of the many individual nurgling bits that seem to spread in the old bit box like a disease the moment one decides to add a couple of Nurgle units to one’s forces.
Got my snap fit Myphitic Blight-Hauler from the game store one day after I asked the owner to order it for me. Now that’s service! I put it together over the holiday. The kit certainly did go together easily and I didn’t use any glue to see how it would work out. I was pleased with the results.
It is a simple kit but since blight haulers don’t have any equipment upgrades it is all good. A missile launcher and multi-melta are just the sorts of things my forces need, actually. For some reason my armies tend to deal with tanks and such by beating on them with swords. This seems less effective this edition with the notable exception of my daemon prince of Khorne. The shrouding the hauler provides accompanying infantry is welcome too.
Unfortunately the conditions of Azazel’s challenge state that the models have to be no smaller than an Age of Sigmar hero or an ogre, so no mouthy, work-in-progress nurglings allowed! Even if they try and make themselves look bigger by forming up into daemon pyramids and such like a bunch of Blood Bowl cheerleaders. You really do have to keep these lesser daemon types on a short leash.
