Hello, fellow Warseers,
I welcome you to my little painting blog. As the title says, it's main focus lies on a Nurgle WoC which I started to build up, mixed with some Dogs of War and Greenskin pictures.
Although I'm in the hobby for 7 or 8 years now (maybe more?), my painting speed is slow to say it positive.
Most times I kitbashed models, but I never used Green Stuff or other sculpting material. Now, for the Nurgle army I'm planning more conversions, so some stuff seemed inevitable, and I purchased a Pack of GF9 Grey Stuff!
The WoC army is aimed to roughly 3000 points (or 2996, to stay at a multiple of 7) and will contain only Nurgle marked units, a hellcannon could be the only exception.
But enough brabling, here comes my first ever work with G(rey)S! A exalted hero of Nurgle, still WIP (maybe he gets the Battle Standard, the Knights Kit got this nice chained standard). He was build using the Games Day Archaons legs, the backpart of a chaos warrior as well as Knight Weapon, shield, Breastplate and helmet. Grey Stuff was used to connect torso and legs and to mutate his arms a bit, in form of (when painted) pale flesh with the Mark of Nurgle burned in. Roughly one head size bigger than ordinary warriors.
The army will be led by Rhomkar the Pushearted (Rhomkar Eiterherz in German) on his mighty Chaos Dragon Scourgewing/Blightwing (Pestschwinge in German). So I was able to grab a little bargain and got a Baudros without rider, exactly what I was looking for! But Baudros' shape was a bit pitiful:
You may ask "How dare you defiling Archaons legs and discard the rest? That's a Games Day miniature, and an awesome one!!"
Well, I would not dare to do this, as you will see. My first plan was to use the Nurgle General on Daemonic Mount's Torso for Rhomkar, the pointing gesture and the scythe was quite nurgle-esque, I thought. Then i saw Ana's chaos Dragon on coolminiornot and thought, I could do the same (well, not the paintjob... ) and use a Chaos Knight as rider.
Rather out of curiosity I fixated Archaon on Baudros and it turned out quite well! (The white stuff you see is Uhu patafix, usually used to stick stuff and fix holes and leaks...it's quite awesome to test metal miniature poses without glueing them)
The last thing to show you for the beginning is a christmas present for my dad. To tell a bit of the story behind it: Some 6-7 years ago, a local store (well, 25 kilometres away) started to sell Games Workshop stuff. Before my friends and I had to buy stuff on ebay or one of them bought it in Munich (which is around 100 km from my home). Anyways, my dad was at the store's opening by accident and know I played Warhammer, so he bought me a 40k Ork bike. While not playing Space Orks, or 40k in general back then I was overly happy and painted it with all the enthusiam of a happy 13 year old boy...you can imagine the rest.
So I bought a Ork bike again, packed it on a base from tabletop-art and decided to paint it properly and give it to him as a christmas present.
He is a collector of old toys and Harley driver, so the old crude Ork bike is somewhat fitting, as is the spiky helmet and the grim face of the biker.
It only needs some paint:
Soo...that's my first blog ever, hopefully you enjoy reading it a bit!
