For those of you who have yet to be awed by Cranky Old Gamer's work, please take a look at this repost. There is both some great sculpting and painting as well as a bit of Tentacle Maker use. Enjoy!
I've wanted to convert up some Chaos Spawn for my 40k Nurgle CSM force for some time. I wasn't too thrilled with the stock models, although they did have some nice bits in that kit, and didn't look too Nurgley. You know me - when it comes to my Nurgle CSM force, it pretty much has to be a labor of love conversion. So I started on these conversions a while ago, set them aside to work on some other stuff, and finally got around to finishing them. Super happy with the results! Check inside to see the results!

Today we have another great Tyranid Lictor conversion from Ron. Not only is there some impressive conversion work, but the paint scheme is pretty striking, too!

I think I've nailed down what my only serious problem with PHR as a faction in Dropzone Commander is... their dropships.
Now, I know the PHR theme is slow, good punch at long range, and high toughness. But, with PHR dropships the theme seems to have been deviated from. The difference in point cost (typically over-valued compared to the other factions), punch (virtually no real offensive power), and speed (or, more accurately, lack of speed) is a triple handicap, I think. Mitigating just one of these would really help them be less of an "uphill battle" type of faction.

A while ago I inherited this pretty amazing War Gamma Maggot King from Frontline Gaming in Martinez, CA. I had no clear idea what to do with it when Frankie handed it to me. But upon hearing the Nurgle Daemonkin rumors, it started calling to me from the shelf.

Due to a robust Dropzone Commander community, I've recently started spending my Tuesday nights at the excellent FLGS, EndGame, over in Oakland, CA. I ended up bringing some of my Destroyed Structure markers for folks to use at their quarterly DzC tournament. Never pass up a chance to do some marketing!

I just finished some more of the 10mm Dropzone Commander scatter terrain. This barricade was something I've wanted to do for awhile, but didn't have the ballz to try it until two weeks ago. I really wasn't too confident in my 10mm sandbag sculpting abilities but it was actually pretty easy (short tutorial forthcoming).

Ron here with the Facing The Grey Tide blog and today I'm posting a Lictor pose conversion I'm working. I'm running Lictorshame like all the other bandwagoneers these days, and I don't want to settle for 6 with the same identical "I'm hiding in plain sight" stance. So this is the beginning of my journey to create 6 individualized Lictors in all sorts of dynamic, stalker-ish poses (Lictors in the fluff are big time creepers hiding in the bushes and whatnot, not standing straight up in the open with jazz hands). I hope these posts inspire some crazy Lictor conversions of your own!
