nurgle reinforcements are in:

the 'foetid claw' escort squadron.
some simple conversion on these. I have never really liked the look of the chaos escort vessels much. aside from the iconoclast that is. the others just seem a little odd looking. I know this is a purposeful design choice to show that the vessels are based on hybrid human/xeno technological elements and the disparate and 'spikey' forms are very obviously chaotic.
however I like my escorts to be more or less baby versions of the cruisers in essence. as such my chaos escorts feature a more streamlined aesthetic (using parts from the imperial sword escorts and my trademark domes) that ditches the excessively spikey bits and points it all forward, giving a greater sense of forward momentum.

also here are my prototypes for a nurgle specific 'blight' torpedo.
Image
in rules terms either a boarding or regular torpedo but, in truth, simply an excuse to create a torpedo that looks like ginormous maggot with an engine grown out of its posterior that rides across the void to chow-down on imperial-lackey ships...
yes... Rank.
(made from the engine vents off a Valkyrie with bits from imperial aerials as engines)

and before the foetidity of the chaotic forces soil my eyes and or brain any further, I've gone for a gentler kind of heresy, here is the latest addition to my rogue trader flotilla:

final parts of the nurgle fleet (for the foreseeable future anyhow)

the 'filth incarnate' A slaughter class cruiser.
Image
Image
for this conversion I decided to redesign the bridge (thanks to an old chaos battleship bridge) to be much more forward to suggest at the speed of the vessel. she is the fastest cruiser in the chaos fleet after-all! the nurgleisation has been kept to a minimum to again further emphasize the speed factor. stripped down and slick.
I used imperial turrets and aerials for a slimline look too.
however I could not resist a bit of scumming-up, namely the greenstuff guts hanging out of the port side midships and the spines thrusting their way out of the stern-side hull. (I shaved these off of the chaos vehicle spikey sprue spike-plate) also I did a lot of drilling to do the old maggot/woodworm-eaten look I did before, especially on the courtyard just rear of the bridge (keeping most of the holes in the triple circle nurgle symbol where possible) and a little greenstuff 'pustule' triplet (a nurgle design staple if ever there was one) on the starboard 'socket' just behind the prow.

the next up is a second murder class. having at least a pair of these gunboats is an essential in a chaos fleet if you expect to achieve any sort of victory. the slaughter is the cheetah of your fleet, that's a given but these are your workhorses without a doubt. stick a carrier like despoiler or a styx in the back with an escort of idolaters, and sling in a few iconoclasts and infidels and you've got yourself a good working fleet.
still, I digress. here is the 'most unclean'
Image

Image
Image
this conversion was actually something I've wanted to do for a LONG time. as you can see it features another pair of horns like the previous murder class, this time taken from the tyranid warrior shoulderpad (the same component used on the styx's nose) I 'broke' one for a more lopsided look that nurgle is famous for. also, It cant have escaped your notice, the enormous great unclean one riding the ship from behind the bridge! (the bridge is from a chaos escort) this is actually a lone nurgling from the boxed set. I just loved the idea of a greater daemon riding the vessel out of the warp and this image harks back to the very early days of 40k (a similar image is in and old rulebook I believe, there's a challenge for you: go though your old rulebooks and see if you can find it!)
I used the small bridge to not over-shadow the daemon. as crazy as this seems I feel it works as a parody of the winged angels and eagle tributes to their corpse-god that the imperial lackeys like to smother their ships in.
I just love the way he is spewing up nasty nurgle-filth to spread all over the very hull of the ship itself...
I tried something new too, agrellan-earth to create a crusty splitting texure to the hull. it did get a bit lost in the basecoat but soon reappeared after the wash/shade coat, and to good effect if I do say so myself...
the success of this, plus the particularly overt appearance of having a greater daemon sitting on the hull made me leave the chaosisation to a minimum. this time, apart from the horns, I simply added a chaos star with added nurgle symbol to the starboard stern. simple but effective imho...
Image
here are the two together.

sorry for the less than perfect pics, the light is horrible today...

more imperial stuff next!

Man, really love that Nurgle daemon on the ship, never knew such a model would work! :D

The Deathwatch hit the stars!

the 'Daedalus'
Image
an Ordo Xenos inquisitoral strike cruiser filled with black powerarmour clad space marines with high tech bolters and bad attitudes ;)

as seen in wip shots this cruiser uses several other bitz to alter its shape. I feel it really encapsulates the personality I was going for. high-tech but brutal, as space-marines should be.
Especially the inquisition, who have access to the very newest of the cutting edge tech available to the Imperium...

here is a shot of the two Inquisitorial strike cruisers together:
Image the right and left hand of the inquisition, rarely seen together except in extremely dire circumstances... someone gonna get purged...




some dw thunderhawks soon...

the Righteous Infliction is here...
Image
Image
Image
yep a voss retribution class...

yes I know she has a nova cannon not torpedoes but I field her as such and swap out torpedoes for nova at no extra cost and why not eh? its more than a fair trade for the opponent. strength six torpedoes swapped out for a single novacannon..?

I had been after one of these voss battleships for what seemed like forever and a friend of mine ditched his entire collection and donated this (and many more) ships to me.
I couldn't believe my luck, I had coveted this ship since he bought it! and back then funds were even worse than they are for me now! so I knew i never had a chance to own one.
anyway, bit of stripping of paint and some re-jigging here and there the Righteous Infliction was re-born*

why not simply do an apocalypse class? well to be honest; style. pure and simple. not to blow my own trumpet, but this conversion has everything I have ever loved about bfg stylistically; massed weapon batteries, arches, buttresses, voss prow, church for a bridge section, eagles, golden winged angel, chunky-assed-engines with horizontal protection plates and the ability to purge a planet from orbit with a single broadside volley! To be honest battleships aren't really my style but the retribution is faster, gunnier and blunter in tactics than all the other battleship classes. to my eyes its pretty much an over-amped overlord class isn't it? :D

classifications aside this ship is the perfect centrepeice to my ever growing armageddon sector battlefleet and was a fun conversion and painting challenge.

that being said, conversion was bare minimum. its pretty simple, for those not in the know the weapons batteries are helian and the bridge is off of the planet killer. but, who am I kidding, you knew all that already didn't you... ;)

*I say re-born as my first retribution class had the same name and was in gothic colours. in my fluff, the Righteous Infliction suffered terrible damage after fleet engagement with the dark chaos lord henreticus (the same buddy who donated his fleet(s) to my cause ;) ) after limping her way to the Armageddon sector she was re fitted with reclaimed weapon systems and a new voss prow. hence the nova cannon...
what a fine excuse not to convert that voss prow eh?

just keep on truckin'...

transportation is a precise business

Image
'tis the 'yellow Snork' part of the yellowline trucking company of transports I have.
Image
here they are all together...


Image
although owned by Jago Kane, founder and operator of yellowline trucks, this high conveyor class transport barge is mostly run and crewed by the miner's guild, mining asteroids and dead planets for minerals and gasses via the extensive launchbays filled with ore-transport and drilling craft.
as the flagship of yellowline, kane himself commands the yellow snork to make sure no underhanded sneakiness or back-alley dealing goes on that's not his own...
proof of the dangerous nature of this work is evident by the small moon that has accidentally been dragged out of orbit by the extensive mass of this vessel and has embedded itself into the port side. now mined and integrated into the very ships systems.


I took two other shots to show other angles but the colour ended up less yellow and the prow less white and more grey for some reason... not enough light I'd say...
Image
Image

for those not in the know this is a conversion of the incredibly talented LordBorak's High conveyor transport barge model. the conversion involves the rather obvious addition of the moon (miliput) and the wings are from an imperial cruiser. there are a triplet of helian laser lances added to the prow and the launchbays are also helian.

this is the merchant fleet where my system ships I made in the wip thread go too.

Image
the system-ship sized transports.
I've shown these three scratch-builds with my yellow transport escort and one of the gw system ships (back two) so that people (malika ;)) can tell the scale a little better.

at first I had them simply yellow/white and dirty but the one directly under the transport escort looked a little shite so I added steel damage and a bit o' rust effect and it looked so much better. I then felt I had to add a bit of this to the others too. gotta say that after that I'm real happy with the result. obviously they look better in the flesh as the gleaming metal catches the light better than a single frame shot shows but I'm sure you can use your imagination on that a bit and just take my word for it I guess...
