So i've got a bit behind with my updates, but if you're following my lucky 88th blog you'll see i'm back with plenty of ongoing and past projects.

Firstly, a catch up from before calneage.

The venomthrope which provides sporey cover for my scythe friendly gribblies.

The base is quite calm really, compared to other models. i figured a grey marine helmet and some shells would look nice, ideally a brighter marine helmet would look better, but for personal reasons, anything that resembles Lee's damn drop pod marines makes me happy :D

My two hastily built objective markers, they have plenty of room for improvement - adding supplies or tasty morsels will actually make these "objectives" rather than simply scenes of dying guardsmen

just look at the fear in his eyes!
This guy is totally oblivious of his impending doom, im considering adding a sign post with something like "Medicentre" on it, with a bloody hand print on the other side...

And now onto new things!

With a bit of income now flooding in, i treated myself to some forgeworld goodies. First is this baby!

Introducing, an even bigger brain bug!

You can see I highlighted the faces and hands in the digestion sacks to give the impression of them streching out

And finally, a use for those pesky funny faced rippers that come with the genestealers, I figured they would acompany the Malanthrope and help chew up the tougher stuff
Theres another big one to come, he's an ugly mutha, but compared to some of the company he keeps, he could win beauty contests!

hopefully i can get some quality time this week to get him washed and based, so possibly an update later this week.

Cheers for dropping by!

The Dormant Beast Awakens

Still reeling from the virus attacks, Borlina was plunged into an unending war with chaotic daemons and renegade guardsmen fighting to destroy any sign of the emperors influence over the once royal and aristocratic planet.

The Lucky 88th along with the local Astartas chapters began to make some headway. once the mighty fortress palace of Borlingrav was recaptured, Reinforcements could be brought into the planet, boosting the Regiments of the unofficial PDF under the watchfull eye of the commissariat.

Things no longer looked bleak for the diseased hell hole, fortifications were being construced and the planet was regaining the emperors will.

Maybe the sheer optimism of the imperial troops drew the dormant hive fleet in or another one of Inquisitor Payne's dubious experiments buried forever under the great palace'smain chambers. Who can say. All we know is a tentacle of the great devourer has made it to the outer reaches of the cadian gate.

Due to borlin's unusually high number of malanthropes and rippers it is believed to be a remnant of an ancient hive fleet long destroyed, Hive Splinter Borlin is comprised mainly of the "clean up" elements of an average hive fleet. Entirely obsessed with gorging itself to capacity by means of teeth, claws and digestive acids. Ranged weapons hardly ever feature in their ranks, only slithering, gibbering rows of blades occasionally spitting venomous sprays and toxic bile to aid the digestion of their foe.
