Hey peeps thought it was about time for me to get on with my own army blog here.

As the title states I am in the progress of making a 2000pts fantasy nurgle army for a tournement here in Norway in November.

Now my thing with the army is that it will most likely not be a very hard army to beat gaming wise, and becouse of that I intend on putting stuff in to the army wich I think would be cool and look nice.

I have painted some allready like a 16 man Warrior unit and a chariot.

what I have left to paint is:

Nurgle Lord (Archaon on foot model)

2 Nurgle Sorceres.

1 unit of 15 warriors.

1 chariot.

8-10 Furies or flying blobs..

and finnish my chaos giant.

Its not to much to as you see, as it is a very small army.
But I will see if I cant get it done by the time I need to have it all finnished.
(knowing me I will start painting alot of other stuff in the meantime).

So if I can manage to do this here are some pics of my warriors, chariot and WIP giant.

Nurgle Warrriors as you see the banner is not painted yet:

My Nurgle chariot, wich I had some problems with, couse the chaos chariot has 2 crew men. But the chariot I have used doesnt have room for 2 warriors. Hence the litle Nurgling with a whip(driver) :

and for last here is my WIP Nurgle Giant:

so there you have the start of the army..C&C are more then welcome:)

Very nice army. If you ask me, Tzeentch is by far the coolest chaos power! But I have something with mutants... I remember how much I liked Ninja Turtles when I was a kid, lol :P

Wow excellent stuff so far Muffe. I like the conversion work on the Chariot. The Nurgle Chaos warriors are looking good too. I also like all the boils you have sculpted on to the giant. Looking forward to seeing some more updates.

Everything sure looks good! The warriors and the horn on the giant are nice.
However, the snow looks a bit like... keso... cottage cheese:p ?

Only if 'cool' equals 'naff', off course, otherwise it's either Papa Nurgle or the Fonz. :D

Nice stuff so far, particularly those sick boils on the Giant and the purplish flesh on the Warriors.
About the army list - if you've got some time left, make the Lord an Exalted Champion (3 Wounds and 4 attacks is quite adequate), make the Fury unit 5-7 strong (I normally use 5, 7 when I know I'm up against shooty opponents) and use the points spared to add some Nurglings to the army.
The Nurgling Swarm is one of the best Swarms in the game - decent S and T, Fear, a semi-Ward save and the abilty to assist the Warriors with their Cloud of Flies. Your opponents will hate you for fielding them, and they look cute as well. ;)

Squiggoth: I will think over that. might not be such a bad idea.

and thanks for the comments so far. And on the comments on the blisters and that, im glad you like them. they are my first atemt at paitning something like this and I am pretty proud of the result:)

Now I have started on the second warrior regiment and I am almost half way threw them and I have bought the second chariot.

Now I am looking for ideas for what might pull the second chariot. any advice or hints would be cool, so far I have heard spawn, wich in itself would be cool.

and I could also need some help with making some furies, if any have any great ideas on how to make them then that would be awesome!

Hmmz. I made seven of them from Kroot bodies with Ungor heads (old and new), Genestealer arms (the ones with the hands) as legs and Fury wings:

They looked alright, but the models had the lifespan of a china plate at the WWF wrestling championship .... wings, legs and flying stands snapped as soon as you sneezed near them. So now I've eBayed 7 old Harpies (the ones with the warts and ugly gargoyle heads) and they've survived for a few months already. Quite nice models as well. :)

A good alternative for when you want Nurgly-looking Furies is to use Plaguebearers with Fury wings, or to model big fat flies from greenstuff.

Nice looking stuff but I find that the skin from the giant still looks quite healty for have got some blessings from nurgle, but apart from that it looks nice.

Very nice looking stuff. The Chariot is a very good idea. Why not continue it for the second one? Maybe the Ogre can have back piercings which are linked to the chain. Again, great looking figs.

Well the giant hasn't got the mark of nurgle. He just hangs around with folks that have...

those are some nice looking furies..

I had one idea with trying to sculpt some big flies or something, but we will see what I have time for.

And as for the chariot I might go for another ogre..or maybe a troll or something?

You should have a team of, say, 4 people dragging the next one.

I like the idea of keeping it in theme and have another Ogre drawing the second chariot.

The army is certainly looking great. Much better than the Khornate Soace Marines you use. :cool:
