On the Road to Cathay? | WHFB

so...WHFB fever has set in.  I love ancients, but I need a break from painting them. Plus I love to do Conversions.  I picked up the new Deamons book, looks like I need to make some units to fully bring my Nurgle Army out of retirement. Some new furies, GUO, Plague Drones, etc. Will have to clean/update the bases a bit.

What to do for a new army.

Years ago, I did some Asian Themed conversions for a client. I always liked how they looked (I'd like to think I'd do better now though...).  IMHO the theme is a nice fit for ogres.

Rhinox Riders. 


Not quite sure where I was going on these...  Note the Gnoblars... 

Butcher and Bulls. 
Next new army ?  Cathay. This will be fun. Will be doing a little cross blogging/challenge with master painter Kelly Kim (check out his Blog: Sable and Spray) who will be making his "Spirit Dragons" Samurai Space Marine Chapter. His concept won the GW "design a space marine chapter" contest years ago.  Sweet...

More to follow late Spring.

Back to the pit, need to finish Adepticon Models still.

as always, thanks for looking
