May Father Nurgle's blessings be upon you all. May his contagion and pestilence be bestowed upon you . May you know the eternal suffering that life is meant to be. May you be left yearning for the gaping maw of death in the eternal cycle of renewal. To receive the blessings of Nurgle, all one has to do is want to live and be willing to do whatever it takes to cling to life. All else follows naturally from there. The church of the Fly Lord is open to all. Hello everybody! I am Millon. A mere acolyte of the suffering of papa Nurgle. This past year has been amazing for me for the hobby I have been introduced to. I am 40 yrs old and never have I done any type of painting or modeling or building, nothing of comparison to miniature gaming and painting. A friend of mine found out about a game shop local to us, Section 8 gaming in Buffalo, NY, and he wanted to go check it out. He had been a Warhammer player decades ago before college and wanted to check this place out and maybe start again. Only, he didn't want to go alone and be the only grown man to go buy toys (little did we know about the array of individuals in this gaming community) so he asked me to be his wing-nerd. He went for the bug army known as Tyrannids. I had no idea what the hell I was doing or looking at lol so I just grabbed the team that I thought looked the cooled; The Death Guard. An army of eternally infested, diseased, warped, mutated husks of soldiers who had become the followers of The Lord of Contagion. I started watching any and every tutorial I could find on painting these Death Guard and Poxwalkers. I strongly recommend the streams Brush & Boltgun and Miniac. There are others I watched aside from those but the names escape me. Just google or youtube search 'How to paint. . . ' and a massive amount of info is in your hands. I am super proud of how well these figures came out. I never expected the reward i would get from getting into this hobby. I've rather become a bit of a paint and mini goblin, hahaha. I must have ALL the paints and minis! Thankfully I am poor so I am forced to temper my goblinhood and have to be selective in my purchases because, brothers and sisters, this shiz aint cheap! For tiny little mounds of plastic? Yeah. crazy expensive. In a way that's a bit of a blessin for me as I had plenty of time to work on each model I had without having a backlog of things to paint. (It's inevitable. If you start this, you eventually, guaranteed, end up with a back log of things to paint. Not necessarily a bad thing). I can take my time and really invest myself into this. I have a painting process. I stare obsessively at my mini for a very long time. Like. . . days. . . It's totally not because of performance anxiety or paranoia or the need to psych myself up past my anxiety to start painting. . . . . totally not that . . . <.< >.> . . . I plan out a step by step process that inevitably falls apart after the second or third stroke of the brush lol. By then though, I'm already kind of lost in my own mind. I was not aware of there being a therapeutic aspect to getting into a hobby before. I get in, and start to paint and, next thing I know, a few hours have passed by and I am totally chill. It's my safe space. It's just sad that it took me 40 years to find this. I'd like to share my Plague Boys with you all if you'd like. There's quite bit. I would love to hear any feed back you have, or questions and comments. If anyone else out here does any type of miniature painting or modeling I would really enjoy hearing about them or see you share them. Looking forward to interacting with you all.
