Brotherhood of the Crow part 31

As promised in my last post this post is dedicated to a labor of love 26 years in the making. It all began in 1990 when, at 11, I got the legendary tomb Realm of Chaos: Lost and the Damned. It has been with me ever since. I have not let it leave my sight since the day I got it. One of the entries in it is the War Altar of Nurgle. Like a lot of people I enjoy the pageantry of Nurgle and I've always wanted to make an altar for my favorite Chaos god, especially after looking at the amazing one in LatD for so long. I've had a few false starts over the years and this project might have gone the same way if not for three special people who made it possible. In no particular order: Andrew Dyer, Richard "Orcland" Hale, from Stuff of Legends, and a local friend Evan for their contributions to what has become my crowning achievement, as far as I'm concerned, thank you guys so much. I couldn't have done it without you. So enough lead in, here is the main event. I hope you enjoy it. My scratch built War Altar of Nurgle.

Some of you may recognize a few of the figures on this from Oldhammer weekend, which unfortunately I was unable to attend, for the second year in a row. :( Also the first person who can tell me what the main symbol on the white banner is gets 10 points for their house.

Brotherhood of the Crow part 30

I still don't have a computer, but a friend is letting me use his. So thanks to him I can post another installment of the Brotherhood of the Crow. So, without further ado here we go.

I have been on a painting kick lately and I have not only finished another couple of champions, but also a few units. I have also finished a project that has been in the works for 25 years, but that will be featured in my next post.

My Nurgle army is nearly finished. I only have a few champions to paint and I just received a plague cart in the mail today and I will be out of models. After that I'll be getting one unit at a time and finishing it before moving on to the next. The next unit in line will be a unit of either Diseased Flagellants or Plague Zombies, maybe Plague Skeletons, to go with my Plague Cart. Oh and I almost forgot, I also recently acquired a Palanquin of Nurgle and, hopefully I will soon have a rider that I will use as the Baron of Crows. Finally my army has a leader!

I recently borrowed a section of GW's plastic game board that my brother painted and decorated for his chaos army to rephotograph my units on. So, I'll be reposting pictures of all the units in my Nurgle army.

First is the new unit I painted. A unit of Pestigor with a chaos champion leading them.

Next is a unit of Nurgle chaos warriors lead by yet another champion.

The (current) army standard bearer who is a champion crossbred with a troll and an early 80's sculpt of a female chaos warrior whom I'm using as a champion.

Lastly a unit of D3 Plaguebearers from the "Chaos Creatures" chart.

OMG! It's the orky life for me!

Helloooo Orktober!
When you're excited about something you just have to blog about it. Well, I'm excited about what I got this Orktober. Massive trade of AoS minis for Oldhammer minis. With this treasure trove I can now create 17 out of the 20 types of Freebooterz units.
Now I just need 3 runtbot bomb launchers.
