I'm leaving for Outgard now, with my warband in their personal transport box.

Outgard: Tankhut

The tracked wytch hut I made for Outgard is painted up, and ready to be deployed in Helsinki this saturday. I'm really looking forward to the Outgard game!






I'm leaving for Helsinki tomorrow! You can expect some great pictures of the Outgard warbands in action next week!

Outgard: The King's Champion

My Knight riding a mechanical steed is complete! This turned out to be one of my favourite models in the warband. I was a bit sceptical at first, because the model has some really fancy technology compared to the others. But mounting a Medieval Knight on the robot horse suggests that the people don't understand the technology, even though they have it. Which I think is an important aspect of 40k, and especially the Outgard setting.








The steed is based on Forge World's Mechanicum Vorax Battle-Automata (the robot bugs with miniguns), with a horse head from Tomb Kings. The rider is an old Bretonnia Knight with a Space Marine chest armour, and Gorka Morka mutant legs.

Black Pox part II: More Pestigors


 Here are some WIPs of two other Plaguebearer based Pestigors.


This first one has a Genestealer Cult shotgun, Tyranid legs and Wood Elves antlers. I really like its long insectile legs. 


This other one have been shared on this blog a long time ago. It has been sitting on my desk for several months, and now I finally got around to continue working on it. The legs have been replaced by longer horse like legs from a Wood Elves steed. It has also gotten a set of antlers to match the other members of the warband .


As I said in the previous post, this project is started by me and three other hobbyists. Rebecca is currently working on her Tzeentch warband. Her leader will be riding this brilliant Dali inspired beaked pig. 


Lastly I have a picture of a fun little character by John Blanche. I'm planning to make a miniature based on this creature.

Black Pox part I: Pestigors

Me and three other Norwegian Hobbyists are starting a new INQ28 project. The participants are Tommy (aka Bigbossredskullz), Rebecca, Mikkel and me. We made a program in MatLab that randomly generated one of the Chaos gods to each of us. I got Nurgle!
I was actually hoping to get some of the other Gods this time, because I have done a lot of Nurgle models, and wanted to do something new. But now that I've started, I'm really glad it I got Nurgle after all. It's definitely my favourite of the Chaos Gods. 

I have countless naked mutant blobs and daemons, and an army of Nurgle Space Marines. This time I wanted to make something different. I'm also really exited about the new Tzaangors box from GW, and want to convert a couple of models based on them. Because of this I want to make a warband focusing on Abhumans or Beastmen. The first two models I put together are my idea of Pestigors (Nurgle infested Beastmen). 



This first one is a regular Pestigor, based on a Plaguebearer with Tyranid legs, a Tom Kings horse head and antlers from the Blight Kings. The model is wielding a chainsaw, based on a FW Solar Auxillia flamer, and a blade form a FW Mechanicum model. 



The second Pestigor is mutated into a Centaur. I was inspired by Red Skulls Tzeentch Centaur, and a Slaaneshii one made by John Blanche. I think both of them is based upon the same horse as this one.
This model also features bits from a Plaguebearer, Tomb Kings, Blight Kings and FW Mechanicum. The horse part of the model is a Wood Elves steed.

Some Outgard updates

It's just over a week until the Outgard game! I'm almost finished with the last couple of models for the project. 


I practised a little freehand symbol for my Warband on my palette. Even though it was quick and messy, I really liked it and decided to cut it out and save it. Maybe I'll glue it to the top of my transport box. 


The housetank is almost done!


Originally I wanted this guy to be a classic Black Knight. But the black looked a bit boring, so I changed it to a rough stippled blue. I used red as a spot colour to tie the Knight in with the rest of the Warband.
