Rotbringers For Warcry

A couple of months ago I put together a warband of Nurgle Daemons for Warcry. Since then I’ve had it in mind to make a warband of Nurgle worshipping mortals as well and now the moment has arrived. 

I took a look at the models I had available and decided that two more Blightkings were just what I needed to complete the group. Of course I didn’t actually have any Blightking models to use so it was time to do some kitbashing. 

Plague has made this chap thin and warped rather than bloated like so many of his peers, but he’s more than capable of carrying the banner on behalf of the group.

I always like to see beastmen as part of Chaos collections so I wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity to add a filthy pestigor to the ranks as well. Like the chap with the banner he’s converted from the Nurgle Blood Bowl team.

For the rest of the Warband I’ve used Fecula Flyblown as a Nurgle Sorceress, the two Blightkings I’d already painted and my Death Guard Daemon Prince who once again finds himself moonlighting in a Warcry warband, this time as a Pusgoyle Blightlord.

Speaking of the Death Guard I have one of those filthy power-armoured and plague-infested swines lurking on the desk too so I’ll aim to get him painted shortly.

    Very nice Wudu in a kind of revolting sort of way. Can’t believe just how much you are getting done at the moment, most impressive. I can only assume you are spending more time indoors than normal, that the TV is broken and your better half isn’t talking to you! 😉

    • Wudugast

      Thank you – they’re a filthy-looking lot aren’t they? I’ve got to say I’m very pleased with how much I’m managing to get done at the moment myself and as it happens you’re kind of right about why I’m managing to be productive. I’m on the road a lot for work at the moment and spending a lot of nights in hotels so I’ve brought a few paints and a lamp with me and I’m getting in a few extra distraction-free evenings.

    Brilliant warband mate – I always thought the emaciated look to be far more creepy & diseased for Nurgle, so always good to see a skinny dude mixed in! That Pestigor is spot on too mate, great stuff!!

    • Wudugast

      Thanks dude! Yeah, the emaciated look always makes me think of those medieval paintings showing wars, the Black Death and so on, with the skeletal figures walking or dancing through the streets whilst we poor mortals suffer and die. Whereas fatness always makes me think of Slaanesh, excess and gluttony. Obviously GW have gone in the opposite direction, Nurgle piles on the pounds and Slaanesh rocks a bit of heroin chic, but I wanted to sneak a skinny dude in there somewhere if I could. And of course I was never going to miss out on the chance to include a pestigor!

    Production is up and you’re on the road? Brilliant and kudos. Very effective painting, grimy and hellish to boot. Now where’s the hand sanitizer…

    • Wudugast

      Thanks Mark! I’m trying to turn being away from home a lot into an advantage, and so far it’s proving to be a big success. Keeps me entertained on what could otherwise be a few boring evenings and it’s putting a dent in the backlog into the bargain!

    Thoare are really nice- my favourite has to be the icon bearer.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

    Sorry to hear you’ve lost your job mate… well that’s what I’ve come to assume because how else are you getting so much good stuff done?! Haha great work man. I love me so disgusting plague ridden nurgle stuff. I like how the first chap is struggling to hold his hefty sword.

    • Wudugast

      Haha – no, I’ve not lost my job! Actually it’s kind of the opposite, I think I said to you about a month ago that I was thinking of taking some paints and miniatures on the road with me whilst I’m travelling a lot for work. It’s turned out to be a big success, I’m sitting around in hotel rooms a lot at the moment and I don’t have a whole lot else to do once it gets dark, so I break out my little lamp and some models and crack on. Plus I’ve got a lot of half-finished miniatures just sitting around and I’d like to make an effort to get them painted up. So far it’s proving really effective, I guess we’ll see if I’m able to keep it up through the rest of the winter.

      Sometimes I find the outsized weapons on some models look a bit daft but with this guy it just seemed perfect, I thought it really emphasised how frail and diseased he is. Mind you I bet he can still swing that sword like the best of them, and the smallest cut from it will carry all kinds of diseases…

    After hearing your secret to success (painting while on the road), I want to know just how much paint have you spilled on hotel room floors? C’mon now! Fess up! 😀 In all seriousness, you’re really making this new way of painting work for you as you’re knocking out minis seemingly every day or two. I love the conversions on these guys. They came out nicely or as nicely as anything Nurgle can anyway! 🙂

    • Wudugast

      Haha – none so far but give me time, I’m sure I’ll have chucked gallons of it around by the end of the winter! 

      Glad you like the Nurgley boys, I had them in mind to convert up for ages and I reckon the results are pleasantly hideous. 🙂

Speak, damn you!
