Nurgle rides to war....on BOARS

Porcine Putrefactors of Nurgle

As promised this will be the post going through each unit in more detail, some of the conversions and paint.  Overall this was a really fun project to work on up until I got to the paint side.  Converting up Nurgle had to be one of the most fun things I've worked on and the new boars from GW (well not really that new anymore) are amazing.  I really wish the Boar Boyz were better in the game so we saw them on the table more.  I was excited to paint until the deadlines started getting too close.  Next thing I knew I had only 5 days to paint the entire army for Adepticon.  That is why it wasn't as much fun, because my fingers were bleeding by the end and I was sleep deprived!

Thick Skin For the WIN - Nurgle Warriors

I had/have been dreaming about building a Nurgle Warriors army since the time my friend Kent painted up some Nurgle Warriors.  I say both had and have because I still dream about having a Nurgle warriors of chaos army as the one I have built isn't quite a full army yet.  I played 3 practice games with proxied models against him and some friends back in the day but just never got around to it...

AoW: Marauder Champion - Call to Glory General

Before I bailed on the Call to Glory campaign, I finished this guy to lead the force.

It's the Avatars of War Marauder Champion model.

I'm not enthused by the pics. They're a bit washed out, but oh well. I'm sick of waiting for a nice cloudy day to take pics.

Orc of the Realm #6 - The Standard Bearer

I've finally been able to get some decent pics of the latest finished Orctonnian OotR.
I went with a muted skin tone, and bright heraldry.

Call to Glory Battle Report

Most of our Call to Glory games occur on our bi-weekly club night. Lately, the action has been spilling over to pre-arranged games in between those campaign sessions. We’ve been dubbing these babies ‘raids’ and this post chronicles one such combat fought between Raj and Legend!

SkullBros Escalation League Introductions (Part 1)

Hey y'all,

As I mentioned in the intro post for this shindig, all of us dummies in the league would be writing up introductions so that people could get a picture of how awful we are. And what a stinky picture it is. Let's start first with the SkullBros:

God we stink.

Vote for your Favorite General!

As part of our ongoing Call to Glory campaign, we are having intermittent painting contests to help encourage everyone to paint some damn models. This is the very first and we need your help to decide!

After reviewing your all the entries, vote for your favorite either by posting in the comments below or replying to the Magnificent Bastards blog thread this post will generate.

This challenge is to paint a General model for our initial forces. They must be a legal unit choice according to the campaign so far, so you will see Chosen and Blight Kings below!








Comment below to vote for your favorite! You can choose based off the painting, conversion, colors, theme, whatever strikes your fancy!

We will tally the votes on Thursday, April 9th, at 5pm CST so don't wait. Whoever gets the most votes counts as winning a campaign challenge and will get to take home this sweet ass spawn!

The Beginnings of Stupid: The SkullBros Inaugural and Invitational 40k Escalation League of Extraordinary Gentlemen


With summer fast approaching and WFB being terrible (seriously, who's still playing End Times?), SkullBros have decided to get weird.

Okay, not THAT weird. Fuck.
So we're rocking 40k for the foreseeable future. Not only that, but those boners have put me in charge of an escalation league. Poor choices abound.
