Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Corrupted Alchomite Stack

This was another piece of terrain I picked up on the cover of Warhammer 40,000 Conquest. Since I’ve already painted a couple of these as part of the terrain I bought in 2017, I wanted to do something different. So I did:

I put the terrain on a card board base (old packing material) and scattered some bits of the sprue around as bits of twisted metal and broken railings. I also added a trio of nurglings to further suggest that yes, this terrain has been taken over by the forces of Nurgle.

As some of the cables now pulse with the green taint of corruptions, the nurglings gleefully help things along. What I was trying to suggest with this part was the nurgling wielding its green flame to corrode the railing until part of it drops to the ground.

On the other side a larger nurgling leaves a trail of slime as it snails its way across the terrain.

I had a lot of fun modelling and painting this piece and I will consider this my entry to Ann’s January 2021 painting challenge.

    Looks very good and I think it has a certain verisimilitude that one does not find with terrain made with deo roll ons etc. as they still reveal their original function.

    I also enjoy the Nurglings, they add narrative and make this much more interesting as a piece.

    Awesome work. I never ever found any terrain versions of the magazine.

      That’s a shame, I missed out on Typhus myself, but was able to get these, the Rhino, and the Plagueburst Crawler, plus some other pieces, so I’m happy enough.

    This came out really well. I like how dirty it looks which is perfect considering Nurgle’s involvement!

    That’s a nicely rusted bit of terrain and a great miniature to start off 2021. The yellow nurglings are a nice touch too. Probably something to do with why it is so rusty and/or perhaps they were attracted to the lovely oxidation?

      I like to think they caused most of it!

        Yes, I’m sure they probably did. šŸ™‚
