Muscomorphus

Yesterday I cobbled together the final Blightking for the five man unit. He, or rather it, is the standardbearer for the group. I gave him a fly head from the plaguebearer kit that was kindly donated to me by Erik - a fitting mutation as flies are a recurring motif in the warbands heraldry. 




Once this misfit is painted I'll move on to the sorceror and round out the chaos warriors.

  1. Great work, I'm looking forwards to se the whole group painted. I'm also exited about what I see in the background.

    1. Cheers Wilhelm!
      The ones in the background, yes... They're a super-duper-sneaky preview of some of the Pylgrym stuff I'm working on. More on that later...

  2. The head is offputting now but I'd reckon after painting it'll look great.

  3. I've always been a fan of emphasizing the fly motif in Nurgle modelling. I like this quite a bit.

  4. I love how the fly head and pose combine to make him seem as he's leering at his next voctim, and lurching forward to attack.

    It gives the impression that his bulk affects him, like wearing heavy plate.

    1. Well... Let's just say he's probably not the world fastest sprinter...

    2. I think that's my favorite part about Nurgle's servants,the death they bring may not be swift, but it is inevitable.

  5. Well done mate ! "Bee aware of the fly headed one !" Nice choice of banner, better than the original one, and more on a classic way !

    1. Thanks Dai! Fly head feels like a no-brainer on a follower of Nurgle!
