GW Chaos Warriors of Nurgle

Recommended Posts

So here's my February resolutionary challenge completed in one fell swoop.

 

1 unit of Nurgle (god of disease, rot, and decay in Warhammer) devoted chaos warriors. The unit is 15 strong including a musician, champion, and standard bearer. They may eventually (hopefully) see the table as part of a Kings of War army, or they may just add to my growing chaos horde as a long term hobby project. Time will tell. The unit is composed of the older 'hunchbacked' plastic warriors with a few way old school metal figures added in. There are a fair number of conversions present as well. This marks my first serious attempt at freehand (shields and standard).

 

Full disclosure: I did not assemble, paint, and base these guys in 12 days. They were already built and spray primed green when I started back on them. The basing isn't that awesome, I may revisit it at another point in time.

 

The whole unit:

C&C and/or questions are welcome. Thanks for looking.

 

 

 

ETA--Hmmm...The pics are clickable, just in case the paint jobs didn't scare you enough in the smaller size. Interesting....

Oh I just love your standard bearer. I actually thought to myself how cute (which it probably not what this unit generally conveys :;): ).

 

I love the fabric and his face poking out from behind it. The unit looks good together very cohesive.

Yes, cute is not generally a compliment I'd expect from these guys. :lol:  Thank you very much, glad you like 'em.

 

@Joshuaslater and Ub3r N3rd--thanks!

Nice job - it was fun that you used actual fabric for the standard bearer.  I've never done that since I was worried that the scale of the weave would throw things off.

 

These models must be a great addition to your army.

I'm glad you like it; it was actually an experiment to see how it would work. I think it turned out fairly well.

 

Thank you all for the kind words.

      All the information you need should be here.

      As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

      January and February 2019

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Finished - not perfect! Paint 4 minis from your 'shelf of shame."  A lot of our minis tend to end up there for a myraid of reasons - but a common one is 'can't get it to look just right" Don't get hung up on perfection - most models can be re-purchased again later

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Bringing back a favorite for whatever absurd reason - Fingerpaint February! Paint a non-object/non-terrain miniature using only your own fingers. The exception is that priming and sealing may be done with a brush/airbrush/can/etc

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Since most of us are in the winter season, and appropriately chilly, take a nod to the Greyhawk setting and the Land of Black Ice. A region of the world covered in black-blue ice. This inhospitable land is often haunted by arctic terrors, black-skinned trolls, and blue-furred bugbears among others. Your challenge is to paint an arctic terror (bonus points if it's a black-skinned troll or blue-furred bugbear) based on this 'sheet of black-blue ice.' Crackle medium may be very helpful for this. The more inhospitable, dark and dreary, the better!

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      This year is the year of giving miniatures as birthday gifts to the friends I game with. One of these fine fellows--my oldest and dearest friend--has a birthday in a couple weeks. He loves magic-users and is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I painted up a 25th anniversary Domur as a classic "Gandalf the Grey" style wizard for his present:



      Tried to layer the flames to give some interesting and pleasing texture. Let me know how I did.

       
       
      Also, given his love for all things Potter, I did my best to modify Domur's spellbook to a more familiar book cover...

      I'm actually surprised I could keep the brush steady enough for it to come across at all similar, to be honest.

      All the information you need should be here.

      Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Frostbite:
      Considering the sheer cold that's gripping most of us as of this posting: Paint a mini that looks like they've been outside in the winter a little too long - snow in the hair, icicles on shields, etc. Have fun with it

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Our annual challenge returns. February Fingerpaint! 
      This is pretty self explanatory. 


      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Pending...


      Good luck

      Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a “Hard mode†which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

      January and February 2017

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge – The First!
      In honor of having a Friday the 13th, Paint a mini up in your best rendition of a classic horror creature. It does not have to resemble the actual creature/character in physique, just paint job.

      Bonus Challenge – The Second!
      A return of our challenge from last year: Fingerpainting! That is, except for priming and sealing, using no other paint applicator besides fingers. And no – enlisting the help of a smaller friend/family member/minion does not qualify. WITH an adjustment this time: It must be a creature of some form or another – no easy ways out with chests/crates/etc.

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Monochrome Microbust: This is easiest with a bones figure for obvious reasons. Take a mini and cut off part of the body so that it resembles an otherwise normal miniatures bust. For purposes of this challenge, the figure must be no larger than a ‘medium’ creature (but should be at least vaguely humanoid) and “Bust†will be defined as – arms no longer than just above the elbow, and chest no further down than the navel. The exception is if the hair goes further down, you may preserve the hair but the rest of the body must still be gone. Monochrome may denote any singular color you want (even grayscale) but you may only use black and white to change the color of the base one chosen.  – Please reserve any questions on this challenge for the chatter thread.

      PLOT TWIST!
      Hidden challenge:
      Fancy Date Night Makeover: Paint up a miniature that's wearing normal medieval or sci-fi armor/clothing into a fancy tux/suit/dress appropriate for date night. Minis that are already wearing appropriate date night attire don't count. (Think kind of like those tuxedo tshirts or similar - full plate armor with a suit and tie painted on it or so.)

      Okay, this paint job actually has kind of a funny story behind it. I'd slathered Brown Liner all over this mini and the two others I'd planned on working on that evening, and I was working on one of the others when Mr. Boot wandered in and kinda watched me for a bit.
       
      Actually, lemme back up a little.
       
      Mr. Boot was looking for a few minis to be used in an upcoming session in our Pathfinder game, and initially he asked me if we had any minis that looked like an Enderman (a monster from Minecraft: a tall, skinny, black humanoid creature with glowing purple eyes and a terrifying scream). I was like:   "Uh...noo...?" Then he was like "Well, how about something kind of wraithy?" And I said "Um...well, I think we have a kinda skeletonish scarecrow, I'll see if I can find him."
       
      While I was poking around looking for it, he continued to look through our Bones bins for inspiration. By the time I returned, he'd pulled out a small assortment of wizardy types, and asked which looked the most evil. After considering, I picked Darkrasp out. And then he asked if I could paint it "pretty much all black." And I asked "You mean, like an Enderman?" And he was all like "Noooo, just kinda wraith-like." And I couldn't help but ask "With glowing purple eyes?" And he responded with  . And I  .
       
      Fast-forward back to the actual painting.
       
      Anyways, so he wandered in, spotted Darkrasp with sloppy Brown Liner all over him, and got all happy and excited and was like "Yeah, this looks great!" And I was all      "I...haven't actually done anything with him yet, that's basically just primer." And he was all "But this is just what I wanted; with it all blotchy and uneven, it really makes him look ghostly." And I'm like "Uh, okaaay..." But I could not in good conscience leave it in such an unfinished state, so I got him to clarify a few things, painted the chains, his beard, the scythe, and the bone holding the scroll in HD Solid Black to try and help them stand out a little bit (not sure how successful that actually was). I also, at Mr. Boot's suggestion, did a drybrush of Solid Black all over to "make it look blacker." Which predictably did absolutely nothing, lol. So instead I grabbed a gray at random and did an all-over drybrush of that, which helped. Then I decided that he needed something more, so I gave him scary red eyes (which...you can't even really see because of the hood, but I know they're there), and some red runes on the scroll.
       
      Without further ado, here's Darkrasp the wraith-y guy:
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      The lovely yellow bits that appear to be on his cloak and robe are not, in fact, a beautiful first attempt at OSL. That's just a reflection from one of the desk lamps I use in my ultra-deluxe photography studio:

       
      Super high class, you guys, you have no idea.
       
      I think I might need to replace my Brush-on Sealer; it definitely didn't go on as matte as usual, which I think really affected the final appearance of this figure, given that the color distinction between the Brown Liner and Solid Black areas is minimal enough to begin with. The shininess kinda makes it all blend together. I'm going to see if my FLGS has a decent brush-on matte sealer; I don't have anyplace I can really spray stuff.
       
      Huzzah!
