Come to Papa!

The plan was to follow up the tzeentchii champion with a tzaangor, but as I was rummaging around in my chaos bitz box an unused blightking caught my eye. The lure of Papa Nurgle was simply irresisteble... 

Tzeentch may be fun but Nurgle is more fun!

  1. There's something about this guy that really does it for me. I think it's the amazing asymmetrical balance you've created with the horns on the helmet and right shoulder, offset by the smaller spikes on his left shoulder and his juxtaposed arm sizes.

    1. Cheers mate!

      The broken horn sort of made sense - if it was whole it'd catch on the shoulderspike all the time...

  2. The open beckoning pose is great!

    Now you've said Tzaangor, it needs to be done - can't say I've seen many of those.

    1. Yeah I know - there's some old RoC models of them but tzaangor haven't exactly been featured a lot lately.

  3. I'll take the lure of Papa over any other any day.

    This bloated sack has plenty of character.

  4. Man, putrid blightkings is the best kit to come out of End Times, imo. Just a cool aesthetic with an appealing array of bits. So many options. Nurgle Rotbringings + Clan Pestilens is my next army project for Age of Sigmar, and the blightkings would need very little conversion work to them. Who am I kidding, I will be converting them anyway lol.

    1. Yeah, they're great. There's a very old school vibe about them.

      I wish they'd release some skinny nurglii guys as well - in the old days they weren't all fat...

  5. I just had the same thing happen to me. I was painting some Slaaneshi chosen and the I decided it would be more fun to paint my Glottkin sorcerer. It WAS fun and it turned out great. I can't wait to see how your Blightking turns out.

    1. That gross boils and obesity should be so seductive...

  6. Awesome! Looks like there may be something putrid in the water. I just put up my own Blightking WIP. Such amazing models. I can't wait to see this fellow painted!

  7. Great looking Blightking conversion. The pose looks really nice. I particularly like his shield arm.

    The only thing I think I would modify is the angle of his pick ax. I think it would look better if it was facing downwards a little more and rotated in towards his body.

    I look forward to seeing where he goes!

    1. Cheers mate!

      I tried that angle with the pickaxe but this more open pose worked better - like he´s slowly advancing forward.

    1. Cheers manu.

      There´s actually quite a lot of conversion work - the different parts for the blightkings aren´t interchangable so you need to cut and greenstuff them quite a bit to make it fit a different body.

    2. Yep, but it's so fine..... perfect

    1. Cheers - I rather like him too. This was my last favourite blightking body - that's why it was the only one left to build. But in the end he turned out pretty darn cool.

  10. Awesome as always man look forward to seeing some paint on him.

    1. You will soon - warming up with a plaguebearer first though.

  11. It's great to see a more martial looking follower of Nurgle that still has all/most of his organs tucked in.

    1. Yeah - I went for something more like a "normal" chaos warrior than mr.Kreosot after his leaf thin mint chocolate. Obviously devoted to Nurgle, but still recognisable as a chaos warrior.
