So, I managed to snag two pretty terrible pictures of what I have put together and primed of my Nurgle army. Keep in mind, I still have six 10 man squads of plague marines to put together, as well as two ten man raptor squads which I will be making using Forge World Plague Marine bodies/shoulder pads, as well as some "Heresy Era" jump packs from either Chapter House Micro Art Studios. I can't remember which. I have two Blight Drones put together so far, with 3 more still in the bags. There is a Nurgle Demon Prince and Herald primed in there, the two different Nurgle variant dreads, some chaos bikers with Plague Marine bodies, some Plague Ogryn, Renegrade Ogryn, a Nurgle Space Marine Sorcerer (with two more still in the bags, although I will green stuff them so I don't have triplets), a 5 man Terminator squad, also Forge World, and finally two Land Raiders and a Predator, all with Forge World upgrades.
While I am not normally one to throw rumors out there, I love the way this one sounds so I am going to play devils advocate and throw this out there. The Back 40k had some amazing rumors on the direction GW is taking with 6th Edition, which I hope truly turn out, and some disparaging one's about GW's already controversial business model. I can't say that I am too surprised with GW's moves to further lock down the global market selling of their product, because with their last changes it showed how ruthlessly adamant they were about doing this. I was however hoping that they would have looked at all the criticism and hatred from independent retailers and gamers and thought about it, but I guess not. As for me, I will finally be moving to Colorado this weekend, so I have been out of control busy with the preparations. If I get time, however, I will try to throw up some pics of all the Forge World goodness I got in the mail last week. I spent well over $500 on models, so my Death Guard army is going to be out of control once I paint it. Anyways, I am off to more pointless meetings in my attempts to get out of the army, so wish me luck!

So it's been a while since my last post, and let me tell you, I have been BUSY! Not with the hobby as much as I have wanted, but with real life issues this time. I got my orders saying I am being medically retired from the Army last week, so I have been scrambling trying to get my stuff packed and moved to Colorado. It's been chaotic to say the least. On the plus side though, I will be getting paid for the rest of my life, so yay me. Anyways, check out below to see what I have been up to since we last spoke.
