Death Guard Vindicator Conversion

This project began as just a vindicator that I happened to keep from a Space Marine Strike Force box. I added some spikes and a chaos symbol, but there was just too much about it that screamed 'Loyalist Dog!'
I never fielded it and it gathered dust for some months.
I ended up going to North Carolina for a few weeks on business and found the Hobby Chest, a pretty awesome Gaming Store and the people there really like my plague Marines. I started to get a lot of questions about them and it got the old wheels in my head turning.
I bought a huge pack of Gale Force green stuff and got to work on this vindi ... honestly I figured that if I screwed up it was no loss since I never really used it.
I started with the GS in the top hatch with the Nurglings, but then got a brilliant idea and added the bodies from a corpse cart to the Seige Shield and before you know it, I had something pretty exiting going on.
For about two hours a day over the course of a week, I would add some green stuff to it and pick away with a long scewer stick (the kind you eat Kababs from.) Now I am at the point where I think I am happy with the GS work and I think I will add some battle damage. Nothing too harsh, just some pits from loyalist bolter fire and such.
I would love some feedback and wouldn't mind hearing some comments or critisism. Let me know what you think.
You will see more of this bad boy in the future,


  1. Looks great, the bodies on the front of the dozer blade are a great idea.

  2. Beautiful ... in a Nurgly way! Great work mate!

  3. Very gruesome looking, good use of the plague cart bodies. Top idea!

  4. Oh wow! I agree. The Plague Cart bodies are awesome.

  5. Thanks for the compliments. I really appreciate the support. I will continue to post the progress of this model once the painting process begins.
