[Archive] The festering legion of Tamurkhan (currently FW Infernal Guard conversions)


So I’ve finally decided it’s time to start my own Army blog, which probably won’t live up to the expectations of its watchers but c’est la vie.

And there’s more but I’ve got to go out now. Will update later :slight_smile:

Let me know what you think (keeping in mind the above is not an army list, just my collection)



Nice collection, can’t wait to see finished models.


Cheers :slight_smile: Have started on the Toad Dragon which arrived today and I must say, I’m starting to partially regret it (as the trimming and pinning is nigh impossible) However, the model itself is truly HUGE, being a near 25cm long and about 4 times as large as a stegadon. The pictures on the FW website really do no justice to the model.

Tamurkhan himself looks like a rather sickly and massive ogre, which I like. This, with the bile trolls will be this coming weeks’ project :slight_smile:


Pyro Stick:

Once this is all painted it will be pretty impressive. I think you should paint the Hellsmith first lol.


@Pyro - cheers :slight_smile:
I aim to get it all done before August, when I have to go over to Tasmania to see the in-laws :frowning:

I bought the hellsmith liking it at the time, but I find it rather bland, so do not know if I’ll paint him first. My army’s primarily Nurglitch, so I’ve started converting my Temple of Skulls so it looks more fitting - with oozing pus and stewed body parts in the eye sockets of the skull-statues, as well starting on covering the monolithic obelisk thingies with Nurglitch iconography. :slight_smile:

Really hoping that I’ll be able to keep my actual painting up to my conversion standard, as I’m much better at sculpting and converting than I am at painting.


Attached are some links to photos of my toady and my scratch-built Chaos Sorceror of Nurgle playing, and hopefully showing size comparison.

Please note - not me in the photos. I don’t wear nail polish… much :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


I was also wondering if someone could make this into an avatar for me:


Thankyou :smiley:


Lord Archaon:

Will this do? :slight_smile:


Those are brilliant, thanks :slight_smile:

How do I downsize it though? It’s 2KB over the limit :frowning:


Pyro Stick:

Downsized it to 24kb for you:


Cheers guys! :smiley:



Attached is a pic of my sculpted Sorcerer.


Said Sorcerer meeting Toady :smiley:


An idea of how big he is. FW said in their newsletter that he’s their “biggest resin kit yet” but I’m pretty that both the Mammoth and Chaos Dragon are bigger… can anyone confirm this?


Just picked up an extra toad dragon (which I’ll convert into a pouncing pose with closed mouth hopefully) a khorngor box set and 7 pestigors w/champion. These will likely just be fillers for my WOC list. I really do miss the good old days when daemons, beastmen and WOC could fight together in one army list. I suppose in this edition they’d be considered “trusted allies” :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:



Also just won the Braganzas Besiegers set for 10 quid. Pretty happy with that :slight_smile:



Woha, its huge! :slight_smile:

This message was automatically appended because it was too short.


@Tjub - hehe, yeah :slight_smile: I was pretty surprised by it, as in the FW photos it looks small due to the size of Tamurkhan - but that’s only because he’s in his huge Tyrant form! Apparently it’s their biggest WF resin kit yet, but I think the Mammoth and Chaos Dragon are much bigger personally.



Update: Won about 20 pestigors and 10 oop daemonettes (6th edition, when they were allowed to have breasts and look like females)

Figured I’m going to do some part-swapping so that my pestigors can be used in my chosen unit.

Got them for about 50c each (Pestigors) and $1.50 each (Daemonettes) so I’m pretty happy with this.

Have also ordered/won a lot of scenery. Enough to make a castle with keep and a fortified manor surrounded by townhouses. I aim to make this a board where the Chaos Legion has occupied it and, after the obligatory looting, killing and drinking (in no particular order) have restored it to some form of order.

As such, it will be done in a Nurglitch style, but with still intact, though showing battle damage.

An example will be that I will have an enslaved/ brainwashed village of corrupt Empire and Bretonian troops and villagers living in the town and serving their dark lords. To show the leader of these cultists I have purchased the Green Knight model, which will be heavily converted into a Nurgle Lord, that will lead a Marauder Horseman unit.

As usual, all comments are appreciated :slight_smile:



Great looking model , it is allot bigger than what the pics show , did the tongue go in ok , when i saw it at games day last year i thought that could be hard to get in the mouth, looking forward to seeing it all painted up and also looking forward to seeing how the army comes together


@Loki - It’s much bigger than the pictures show. To put it into perspective, Tamurkhan in Ogre Tyrant form is about as tall as the plastic Giant model, and he manages to look small on the Toad Dragon. I’ve had to order two Arachnarok bases to make the base for Bubebolos (I know, right?)

I’m also looking forward to painting the army - I think it’ll be a great way to spend this year and can’t wait to see it all done.

Also, the Gamesday model is actually quite different to the final product. They played around more with the eyes and tongue before the final version, in the end making it more appealing and easier to assemble. Haven’t had a problem with the tongue at all, just put a small blob of GS on the tip, inserted it into the main part of the tongue (which is part of the mouth) and super-glued it :slight_smile:



Updated with my plague ogres and plague toads. With the current proxy rules plague riders are too expensive for what they

do. I love their grins though :smiley:



Will be getting my two Chaos Mammoths soon :smiley:

Not putting them on my list just yet, but will do so once I receive them.



Converted my own Siege Giant today, which look pretty good in my opinion. Is now outside letting its basecoat dry, but I’ll hopefully get around to painting it soon.
