Now that's awesome! Shame it's missing the bell, but that crazy amount of bodies makes up for it! Those shades of brown and green look great together

@Borgnine Ha, you're right! I didn't even notice! It's lost the bell sometime since it was built. I can't imagine where that might be. Thanks, man! This one's been fun. I think it'll be a cool addition to the troops.

I'm kinda throwing quick pictures up as I'm finishing this stuff. Maybe I'll do a round up of the whole thing at the end to have a few pictures in focus at least. Also, 2nd Corpse Cart in the tin!

Not much left to go now. Thanks for coming with me.

It's one of those simple, obvious things which I'm sure I wouldn't have done - my version, I'm sure, would have a grey/black/brown horse and not be half as good.

I bet all over the hobby this horse model is used more often for undead than nurgle :D A really really cool take on the CC! Like it man! I have a movie in mind that this is pushing me to, but I can't yet tell it...anyway, love the idea and execution!

@Theerteen He's a fan favorite. I really like when Nurgle stuff ends up in Skaven armies. Clan Pestilens all day. It may not be the one you're thinking of, but if you haven't seen The VVitch (directed by Robert Eggers), now is the time lad. Peeped it recently myself, and I wouldn't steer you astray. Thanks for the kind words, brother.

I commented earlier that green and brown look great together on it - but the green shade itself is superb too! It's so wonderully... toxic ;) especially those lanterns on the back.

Did the necromancer lost the top oh his staff too? ;)

@Borgnine Thanks, dude! Gunna have similar lanterns on the 2 Screaming Skull/Balefire Catapults (learning Kings of War names for everything is a pain). Gives an excuse to have my accent green on more units in my army. That necro's staff was so over the top, I thought a more simple look would keep the focus on him instead of his stick.

Gunna be at the artillery pieces this week!

He's higher than normal and he's not alone, I didn't thought about it, but it's a perfectly valid point ;) Good call!

Are you using Mantic catapults, or tomb kings ones? Also, from where are you getting all the tiny rats? xD Skaven sets or something else?

@Borgnine I found 2 metal trebuchets from RAFM. They're historical models, so that made them very inexpensive but kinda bland too. Good thing I have a ton of undead bits lying around to dress em up. The ratties are from two Skaven kits, the Abomination and the new Thanquol model from End Times (which can be kinda hard to come by. A bits site had to email me when they were finally back in stock.)

I have added more square footage to the Good Doctor's graveyard. Decided to start from the bottom up on my Screaming Skull/Balefire Catapults..that are both trebuchets. Bases finished, and I'm pretty happy with my attempt at matching the Casket of Souls.

I think the warmachines will come together quickly. Next time!

@Theerteen Thanks, homie! Those lanterns will be the same as on my latest Corpse Cart, and there's the ghost and burning skull brazier to bring my green in too. Barrow Toxic Theme in the house!

Wow, those are big! Really nice models, reminds me of the bretonnian one. Really nice work on the bases and the lanters are a really nice touch :) What are the trebuchets made of? I can't make it out from the photos...

Spirit powered undead trebuchets? great work! and amazing bases, by the way. But casket of souls is the best I've ever seen, I like this one more than the GW one.

Resin I guess, though not necessarily, of course.

@Borgnine Totally giant (metal) artillery from RAFM Miniatures. It took some extra bits to Undead them up, and I think the bases go a long way to that. Thanks, man.

@Menkeroth Much obliged. I've got models planned for warmachine crew, but since KoW doesn't bother with them they aren't on the paint table just yet. There are more pics of my Casket from this time 2 years ago a bit further back in my plog if you want some better shots. That model was a blast.

I'm excited to see how your trebuchets come along.

I was thinking of using a skaven plagueclaw to make a screaming skull catapult. I never did like the original model and they are hard to come by these days.

I look forward to using your work as inspiration again.

@The Gunslinger RAFM was a very cheap alternative, like $14USD for one if I recall. Both my Plagueclaw kits are gunna be built as the Warp Lightning Cannon, if I ever get to them. Such a cool model too Thanks for the kind words!

Those took forever! But I'm pretty happy with what I've come up with. Tried to keep them matching the Casket of Souls scheme as closely as possible. That's all of my Undead artillery finished!

It's on to 3 vampires next. They'll determine how much time I have for any kind of display board. Thanks for taking a look! And for anybody keeping score, that puts us here:
