Painted five more Nurglings to round out the Death Guard.

With the plague boys (probably) done it's time to figure out a scheme for the Nids. I think I've confirmed I like bone rather than black for the claws but other than that I'm still unsure. Could just paint a rainbow squad of Hormagaunts until something works I guess!

Nice work on the nurglings (and their friend!)

My advice would be to go with white and orange for the nids, but that's mostly coming from hard lessons learned vis a vis darker paint schemes and visually popping (or, as the case may be, not) during play on the table.
Feel free to call me Dave!

The orange does pop and I'd win points at home going with Yomiuri Giants colours. I'd just need to work the black back in.

Had another friend suggest going with orange but using the Aeldari Emerald for the exposed brains on the various big bugs.

Not even I am entirely immune to the charm of the models themselves.

Especially squigs.

Further iterating the nid scheme. It's easy to paint, does it sell the Giants theme? Dunno. The brain does not fit the theme but you run out of colours with sports teams pretty fast so it was always going to be something contrasting.

Land Raider Proteus, to be run as a straight Land Raider.

(Er, probably. Haven't checked if it has Legends rules)

(Edit: it does and they are *extremely* similar. Proteus is slightly faster and cheaper but can't have all the guns I assembled it with. Easier just to call it a normal Land Raider so the guns are WYSIWYG, I think)

I'm not sure what the difference is supposed to be except "30K/40K can't play nice together." :lol:

If I'd built it with the comms stuff the distinction might make sense, but then you don't have the assault ramp I think, and the 40k datasheet always have the assault ramp. It's very odd. I suppose not bloating the Marine Codex (more than it will be anyway) is good but it's still weird that it happens to nice new plastic kits.

Today's follow up effort, a Gravis Captain who is less captainy because I dropped him and snapped off some of his accoutrements.
