Heresy Death Guard: Test model

Again! I've done it again! What a muppet!

So here I am with a whole bunch of active projects on the go, and I have added more to my worksheet. Why? Because I made the mistake of starting to read the Horus Heresy series after picking up the first 15 novels as eBooks due to the "Humble Bundle" charity. I'm afraid this particular bundle is over now, but the site is well worth keeping an eye on.

Anyway. A few years back I decided to start a Heresy army. I wanted to do it (as always) on the cheap. I'd also just signed up to the "Warhammer 40K Rogue Trader Style" Google+ Community so I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I spent a small amount of money on a large amount of models (thanks again, eBay) and added them to some models I already had.

The promptly went into "the dettol-bucket of shame" and have stayed there since.

Until now!

I proudly present my test model for the army: a metal model from about 30 years ago. He will most likely become the sergeant for my first tactical squad.

Nurgle Knight Titans - Part 10 (First Knight Finished)

So here is my fist completed Nurgle Knight!

This fella was great fun to build and paint. I'm really looking forward to doing the other two to join it on the battlefield. It turned out exactly the way I wanted it to and I'm dead pleased. I'm normally happy with the way my models turn out but they often don't actually turn out the way I'd envisaged. This model is exactly what I'd hoped for.

Kings of War: Ogres (Shooters Unit 1)

Feeling guilty about lack of progress on my Ogres I have had a small push on the heels of completing the Ogre Captain model and finished painting a unit of Shooters (crossbowmen).

This takes me past the half-way mark of the models that were in the Ogre stater set I bought from Mantic. I am, however, nowhere near actually being half-way through the models I own as I also have a Mammoth, a Chariot regiment, the other half of the starter set and forty goblins to paint up.

This is the downside to juggling so many projects - it's easy for some to get left by the wayside.

I think I might alter my approach a little - pick a "primary project" and focus on that with little forays into the others as "lesser projects". When I complete a primary, I can promote a lesser to primary and crack on.

I'll give that some thought. Apart from anything else: what would I choose to be the first primary?

Dilemmas, dilemmas.
