Nurgle Painting Blog Finished!
The Dark elves are complete and safely made it to their new home in Italy. Here is a team pic taken shortly before their trip.



I have also finally completed the Nurgle team for DukeTyrion I started over a year ago. It was quite an effort to bring together such disparate elements to form a nurgle team, implement an unconventional uniform with both white and purple as key colours and get the right amount of dirt and battle damage without them looking a mess.
I find it helps having a deadline to keep, but sometimes when inspiration is lacking I need extra time to do justice to a team. For many of my projects (such as the dark elves above) I already have a good idea of what they will look like before I start. But I came into this team fresh so they needed more work, but I am very happy with the results.




Of all the players on the team the beast gave me the most pause. The mutant I used was already pretty ugly and disgusting, but not quite nurgly enough. I needed to raid my chaos spawn and plaguebearer bits box to find some parts for extra tentacles and to add rotten wounds to his body. The new clay shapers I bought were invaluable for blending the joins.
The addition of a couple of nurglings give him some extra character and a little humour, appropriate as Nurgle is a rather cheerful chaos god.


Duke asked me to make him a turn, score and 5 re-roll markers (4 normal and 1 leader). This again had me turning to my bits box. I had already retrieved a bunch of old metal nurglings and they were ideal as normal re-roll markers.


For the leader nurgling I had a spare nurgling without arms as I’d used those for the held nurgling. I chopped metal arms from another nurgling, used the cloak from a plastic gutter runner and turned an ork vehicle exhaust into a crown to make the nurgling king. Some greenstuff gave his crown and cloak an furred trim.
There was already a plastic nurgling standing on his hands looking like he was doing a little dance. With the addition of a spare ball it now looked like he was doing a TD celebration making him ideal for a score marker.
I had another spare plastic nurgling pulling on guts, identical to the one i’d used on the Beast. I replaced this with a bit of wire and stuck a sign from the plastic flagellants spruce so he was holding a sign and could be used as a turn marker.
These markers were painted to fit in with the rest of the team so were green, white and purple.


The rest if the team have been based and numbered now, so just need to have a coat of varnish and then some static grass added (I do this after varnishing as the grass tends to come off and caught up in the varnish). Then they will be ready for postage.



With them done I am can turn my attentions to the 3 other projects I need to complete by May 2015. Of Topper’s models just Deeproot, Roxanna and Morg are outstanding, along with this fling who will be used as a marker. I am going to turn his helmet into a bobble hat using greenstuff since he is a fan.

I’ve just received a full team of Neomics Orcs to paint up for Jan in early 2015. They are a bit lacking in the armour department, I will be raiding my extensive Bloodbowl bits collection for more suitable heads, shoulder pads, loin cloths and other armour bits. We still need to decide on a colour scheme with red or yellow and black being the front runners.

Yes - I second DukeTyrion and adds converter of Gods grace ;) Again a very great idea - really love the Nurgling additions to the team.

Oh and forgot the Des dark, red and gold theme looks great - especially the blitzers with their ornamentations

Looks like an awesome paint work!
Thanks for sharing these pics.

Both look great, though any roll of 10 should be +AV to anyone using those delf minis. =)

Truly magnificent Spubbbba!

I know for a fact Duke Tyrion is delighted, and for that I salute you.

However, it does mean that when he get's this team out to play me, my miniatures will look like a 3 year old just painted them in marmite and crayons in comparison... The sick feeling of jealousy will envelop me, and I am bound to go greener than the Beast!

I would put in a commission, but I don't think I can afford you! :)

I must learn about "the greenstuff", never having used it before (don't even know where to get it let alone how to use it)... and my next learning is basing everything properly...

It would be great if you could do a separate blog for great hints and tips for us mere mortals... :)

Yay for my Darkies!

Truly magnificent work, and that goes double for the Nurgle team, which is absolutely awesome. The Beast, in particular, is truly stunning.
