Following on from the grubby Nurgle worshippers I painted for Warcry earlier in the week, I’m now turning my attention to their power-armoured cousins over in Warhammer 40k – the Death Guard. Nurgle and his worshippers seem to have a real obsession with bells, something which reaches it’s apex with the Noxious Blightbringer (really Games Workshop, the Blightb-Ringer?!). I started working on a pair of these, one built as standard and one converted, back in 2017, but then life happened and the models sat untouched until now. Carried along by the infectious wave spread by getting the Blightkings painted I decided it was high time I got one of the Blightbringers done as well.
For now I don’t think I’ll be pursuing Nurgle any further, mostly because I really ought to be concentrating on the Adeptus Mechanicus, but at least this filthy swine is finished at last.

Thank you – he’s just foul isn’t he! 😀

Awesome job mate, I love the pale & decayed armour & all of that gorgeous putridness! (if that is even a word) – love it 🙂

Thanks mate – I really like the look of Death Guard in pale armour (for one thing it shows up that nasty gunk nicely!).

He looks great, mate! I like the bell best of all even if it tends to make me think of Skaven. I’m excited to see some more Ad Mech. That’s more my speed than Nurgle as you probably know 🙂

Cheers mate! I’m the same really, I tend to think bells = skaven, but I think they work really nicely for Nurgle as well. Fear not, there’s plenty of Ad Mech on their way, in fact all being well there should be some posted up tomorrow.

Putrid mate, I love it. That bulbous head is spot on
November 14th, 2021 at 12:22 pm
Cheers mate – that head was just too foul not you use!
November 13th, 2021 at 4:33 pm
That’s a really successful headswap, with a suitably disgusting paintjob!

Cheers! When I first saw that head I thought it was so disgusting I had to find a good use for it somewhere!

Great work as always Wudu old chum. 🙂
November 15th, 2021 at 5:44 pm
Thanks muchly mate! 🙂

Really like that- especially the head.
November 16th, 2021 at 8:10 pm
Cheers – the head is just gross isn’t it! 🙂
