Looks like his entire skull, eyeballs and all, with his brainstem leading back into his helmet. Gross AND funny, brilliant work mate.

Thanks guys,

about the ball his holding: My first purpose was to make a marine which is blind and uses its demonic eye to see. I saw samekinda conversion in 3rd edition chaos space marine rulebook so I wanted to make a modern version of it. Special thanks to Yodhrin..mmm brainstream..Thats what im going to do to it. I need to make the ball more brain like. thanks for the ideas. Cheers, bye.

GW should cast them up! Everyone would do DG then!!!

I can see it now...

"Yes that's right sir, 6000 points of Death Guard, yes, that'll be 50p thankyou!

Cos DG will be the only army they'll produce, thus costs will drop and ease of painting will increase!!! Splish, splash, splosh - there we go - a finished DG marine!!!

Hehehehehe

I pefered the eye idea to the brains out of his head (why carry your brains outside your head?) Other then that they look great, I allways thought that Nurgle was the best god for fun conversions

Those are really sharp, man. You did a great job on the guts spilling out and especially on the one with the hose - looks like an old plaguemarine minus the stupid spiked helmet. Really great way to build on what was already there (the tubes every SM helmet has) I really like it. Hope to see em painted up soon :) - Nice touch with the cloven feet too.

Becouse it looks cool, Splatter horror death guard ya know :). Although the eye would look quite silly compared to the brains. And brains always look sick enough. and I have already made the brain conversion. I also included eyes.

About the painting. Im mayby the laziest painter ever, so it may take some time to finnish these guys. You might see an painted aspiring champion after 2 weeks :D.

Great!

One minor comment, I'd try and tidy up the face a bit more. . . try and make it sharper and more realistic. That aside, models and other armour looks well hawt!

The painting style isn't to my tastes, but the colours are good and the modelling is superb, a top notch set of models. :).

Really Nurglly models, what the hell are you taking to get the inspiration for them and can I have some:)

I feel a cold coming on already, any others painted up yet?

Well actualy my schools food makes me feel really sick so propably my schools food gives me the most of my ideas. And I can say, you dont wanna have some of it. :)

Talking with serious face, HL2 gave me some inspiration, especialy the "zombies", all kinda zombie movies, Kill bill vol.1 for the blood. I love blood. not the real one but painted. and The Thing! I love the movie.

I have almost finished my rhino. Demon prince is waiting for greenstuff. I try to paint some figures on this week end. At the moment da aspiring champion is the only one painted.

Thanks, cheers, bye

Great models. If i where to ever do a chaos army it would be DG just because they are so easy to paint and they still look good.

I disagree with this to a certain extent. DG models can be as complex or as simple as you wish, just like any other models. If you can find it look up FW's Will Haye's Death Guard army. It's really top notch.

05-05-2006, 23:10
well I guess your right but what i ment was that you could basicly throw paint on them and when people ask you could just say that they are DG. I guess that doesnt really make any sence! lol

Don`t think I`ve commented yet on this army, but it`s great to see a fellow DG player really getting down and dirty with his greenstuff :evilgrin:

Looks great and I can`t wait to see more!!

(cue more pics ;) )

Nah, stick that 40 onto the middle of a 60. Then green stuff and what-not the base to look all cool and scenic.

Dave out.

02-06-2006, 11:18
I think it looks ok on that base Dave, its just you and your love for 60mm bases, because of all those silly Gaurd Heavy Weapons you have......

@Malalkian your DG are looking awesome, very nice converstion work, and the paintjob looks good, can't wait to see this Rhino.

Well Im going to use those bugger things for all my aspiring champions. I hope i answerd to the right question.

pure gs and wire


Nah, stick that 40 onto the middle of a 60. Then green stuff and what-not the base to look all cool and scenic.

Well actualy I might try that. We'll see

Well the rhino isnt so censored as my DP. I hold my nurgly spirit behind my back while i converted it. But when it comes to the dreads and predator I will convert them as nurgly as possible.

Thanks, cheers, bye.

In a Nurgle kinda way that is :p

Wow. This looks really cool and Nurgly. The Rhino is a good example of this, compared to MFV's completely resculpted Rhinos yours is actually more proper and good-looking. Kudos, matey.

They look great. Feyd and I sold most of the deathguard we were working on and are starting over. We are going for a more space marine feel but still big and bloated, not so OTT either. It should be fun.
