Finishing 'The Contagion' - my August Painting Challenge Projects

The Contagion is my WH40k Nurgle Chaos Daemon army and it is one of my favorite armies, both to model and to play. I have been working on this army on and off for two years now and with my recent Forge World purchase, I have finally gotten everything I wanted for it.

I am very close to completing this army. I have just four models left to paint before it will be fully painted, making it my first fully painted army ever. The models I have left to finish are Scabieathrax, a third Nurgle Blight Drone, Epidemius, and a Herald of Nurgle. I am going to make all of these my 40kFightClub.com 2011 Painting Challenge Projects for the month of August. It is ambitious, but it will be worth it to finish an army for once.


Once I finish this army, I can then concentrate on my Ogre Kingdoms army since the new book is coming out in September.

You are gonna need more Blight Drones... they aren't much use on the table solo.

@Mr.Esty: Not an issue, this is my third one. :)

Nice!!
They're such a sweet model.
Possibly my favorite Nurgle model ever.

Where did you get the base for Big Stink? I've had the hardest time finding one for mine :[

Hi Jason. The base is just the GW large oval (or flyer) base. It is just the right size.

Ah, I thought it was a round base. Thanks!
