40K Deathguard Army: Proxy Poxwalkers (Probably) : CP Models Plant Creatures.

So, more Nurgley Chaos goodness with this possible proxy unit of poxwalkers that I painted.

(These models can be found here… Continue reading 40K Deathguard Army: Proxy Poxwalkers (Probably) : CP Models Plant Creatures.

So I'm trying to get some kind of 8th edition 40k nurgle Deathguard army together, just to get back into the game (haven't played it since 4th edition) but I really wanted to use as much customised and independent companies stuff instead of GW's VERY expensive stuff. Don't get me wrong, I love their stuff,… Continue reading 40K 8th Ed: Deathguard Army: Custom Hellbrute W.I.P. 1
