View Full Version : Brother Fandango's Royal Nurgle Army

23-07-2006, 20:25
Hi fellow Warseers.

over the last year, ive grown very fond of Nurgle in 40k. and I also devoloped a liking for the line of thought of "its your army, do whatever the Queen's English you want"

My Nurgle is going to be Gaelic-Scottish themed, with some Norse elements in there. NOT the uber 1337 demonic image GW put on Chaos. heres my ideas. please critique:

Lord: Based on Typhus, flesh-like vents taken off, with a Knight-like Helm. drum- fed bolter.

Demon Prince: Based on the Standard Bearer from the Storm of Chaos Boxed Set. Will be on a rock to look taller, and painted to mathc army. (bolter and plauge sword)

Demons: WFB Flagellants, Painted to look like "spirits". greens, blues, whites. there will be one model to represent the hermit who has been in the wilderness for years and summoned them to the spot where his homeland was getting attacked.

Marines: talabrads, capes, etc. looks royal. crests on helms. very clean.

Preadetor: crisp and clean, possibly a fleur de leur on there

Greater Deamon: new Giant, painted to look living, and the background will be that he was in the forest, and was treated nice by the King, and a messanger had to be sent to summon him, thus why he arrives late. (still need to think about the while deep-striking thing)

Plauge swords will be explained as ancient weapons used by the most revered warriors of the clan, thus endowing the user with uber 1337 mad skills.

I was planning on using cultists armed with kilts in friendly games to represent the oppressed scots who seek revenge for the wrongs doneto them by the British Empire. (sorry to any brits here, nooffense is meant. its just the history)

Pics will come soon, so please give honest imput.

Sounds like a good idea, but why Nurgle? Apart from toughness 5 troops?

sounds good, i saw a scottish themed space wolves army before, they looked the part. I've never been too fond of nurgle, but you're doing a different take on them, cant wait to see some pics :D

and none taken about the oppressed scots, we british were ******s to every1 non english back in the day!

23-07-2006, 22:28
Ahh but we became british because of the scots (the whole union thing)

I dunno, please no tartan, it wouldnt look right. In fact this sounds a lot better as a fantasy army, but then again try reading daemon world - you could do a fantasy army with some bright marines (in the book they had the pink/purple fantasy slanneshi forces along side the bright blue violaters, they sounded so cool).

@ asmodi..... whats a tartan?

the reason I chose Nurgle is beacuse 1)the Toughness 5 Troops, Scottish where ******* determined, and determination in my mind is represented by either the Fell No Pain rule, or high toughness. and 2) beacuse i thought as a funny take on Nurgle's Rot would bethe bag-pipist who's music repels every one and has them dumbfounded.

Hers a WIP of my G. Deamon, in the form of a Giant. Im thinking of adding mutton chops, and am wondering if a scottish style hat would be supid.
im considering adding pelts sewn togeather of different animals to the shoulder.

as for the base, besides the bike on the ground im going to keep it simple, add a little tallgrass, and to make it look swampy, possibly some water effects.

id like to make the crashed bike on my giant's base Blood Angels, but i need tips on how to make the colour red look really weathered and chipped

30-07-2006, 03:47
Paint the red as you normally would (scorched brown, red gore, blood red), then give it various washes of browns, and in the red, paint black patches, then paint botlgun metal onto these patches, but leaving a very small black outline, so that th epaint appears to be chipped.

Hope that helps, nice project BTW :).

I think the black templars will be your friend bitz-wise. The scott stuff will need to be Gs though.

heres an almost ready for final touches shot. the base is almost complete. i like the effect the water effects gives, painted over a catachan green/desert yellow mix.
i still need to weather the bike.
