Poxgut

I did this plaguebearer as a warm-up before painting the converted blightking. 




I simply adore the plastic plaguebearers - they look exactly like Adrian Smiths illustrations in Realm of Chaos. They're also ridiculously fun to paint. 

While fairly new models, they have a lot of oldschool charm with grinning jovial faces  instead of angry ones, tiny nurglings mischievously pulling on intestines and so on. The only thing I don't like are the swords who look like pointy sticks so that was replaced.

Here he is next to the rest of Mawgut Gloops warband.

  1. Nice warband my friend ! I love the colours, it gives an impression of a sepia photo... Old school vibe, rusty, dirty... hell yeah NURGLE ! love the different sizes that really add to the warband's visual

  5. Beautiful work as usual - really inspiring for my own Nurgle work, both with the conversions and the painting.

  6. The sword switch was a great choice - I too am not a fan of the pointy standard option they come with.

    Really great PB. Your colouring for nurgle skin schemes is perfect.

  7. That's a lovely warband, Jeff!
    I like the different sizes of models, and the way your colour scheme links them together.

    It is hard to tell which one I like the most... Probably the one based on the Ork Runtherd for it is the most unexpected conversion! He looks really grim too!
    I while probably steal the idea for a Hearlad of Nurgle conversion if that's alright...

    Great stuff!

  8. Very detailed, though I believe it should lance its abscesses! Don't you think so?

  9. Really nice stuff. I guess I'm a little bit late (like a year and half), so I'm not sure if you'll see this. But what did you use for the plaguebearer's blade?
