Old School here with a post about a model that is near and dear to my rotten heart ... I speak of course of my Nurgle Vindicator. This model has been through a lot and seen quite a bit of paint, but let's take a look at the fresh coat I laid down on it before we get all nastalgic.
I made this Vindicator back in early 2009 in the infant days of Dark Future Games and in fact, this was the first conversion I ever featured on the blog. It has been called many names, but it has found it's permanent name: Canker.
The big highlight was the use of the (brand new at the time) corpse cart bodies (which I bought with winnings from my first tournament victory). I basically took the two halves of the bodies that belong in the cart and laid them across the blade. I used some green stuff to stick them in and a few random skulls and guard bits to make them seem like they belonged in 40k.
The tank was then green stuffed. I don't mean a little here and there. I counted the total time and I actually put 24 hours of total green stuff work in. This is crazy to me now, but back then ... well, it was my first real green stuff work.
The tank was an absolute pleasure to build and has alwasy been a joy to field. People alwasy get a kick out of the sores and the nurglings.
I have and will continue to run this tank as a Daenomically possessed Vindicator. I just love not being shut sown by shakes and stuns and now my blasts are more accurate thanks to the blast rules!
At the end of the day, this really just goes back to my soft spot for old models I made. I really looking at something I made and seeing that it has stood the test of time. This model is just that!
Here is the model in the conversion process.
Here is it in June 2009 after getting it back from Goatboy ...
The Chaos Re-vamp is moving along and I am nearly done with my old Nurgle models and have started on the Iron Warriors. I would love to here what you think of this tank or what you are doing to re-vamp your own Chaos army!
