From the Shed: Nurgle forces.

I’ve used some of my lockdown time whilst I’m not studying to get some bit painted for my nurgle force.


First up are the Plague Marines. i tried to use a wide a selection of weapons as possible to give me options for kill team. Also I’ve enough for 3 fivve man squads in 40k.


First up we have the Champion and icon bearer.



Next the two special weapon marines: blight launcher and plague sprayer (think chemical flamer).


Then we have three close combat marines- pretty powerful when you get them into a melee fight.


The Plagueburst crawler is a great kit, lots of detail fun to paint and build- adds a decent amount of firepower to my little force.


The plan is post lockdown to start with some 500 point games of 40k and see where it goes. At a stretch I could put out about 2000points I think but I want to work my way up there first.

  1. Nice to see you are keeping busy Pete, nicely done.

  2. These look great! Pete! 🙂 All the colours and the bases work well together! That Plagueburst crawler is brilliant – I’ve never seen one before!

      Thanks John. Loved doing the vehicle- lots of different techniques on it. I’ve a few more smaller vehicles to do too which I’m looking forward to tackling.

    Looking great, Pete! I like the plaguecrawler a lot. I’ll be painting mine once I finish my current tray and this has given me lots of guidance!

    Frightenly good! That is an impressive piece of artillery! Great work!

  5. So cool man. Is that chunks of sprue on the bases?

    Those are all looking great, I really like that nasty green armour. The Death Guard range are amongst my favourites from GW, looking forward to seeing what else you have planned.

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Thanks. I’ve a load of terminators and some characters to do. I use a wash of Army Painter’s Military Shader over the Death Guard green to give it some depth.



  7. You did well here Pete – a lovely group.

  8. Do you have a step by step guide to your bases?

  9. Steve says:

    Brilliant work Pete- I love the faded pink creeping in on the bottom of the tank, and the rotting effect you have on the Plague Marines’ armour 👍

  10. Looking good bro! 😎👍

    Another great bunch of lads Pete ! sorry Pete but we are allowed one person to visit us and I have with me an old mate from Watford just out of the old London ,Pox of a place and I’m sure it only produces wasters like im ,any way he wants to know what background you us as a background as it reminds him of when he was a tacker and lived with an old aunt when he was sent to Newcastle ,Sorry Pete but I did say that I would ask!! one would have thought a it of concrete paving would be just that ! Thanks for your patients !!

    The Death Guard look bloody sweet, Pete. I’ve managed to hold off on startiong my own while I try to finish other things but you’re sorely tempting me here…

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Thank you. You should go for it- I’d be really keen to see what you do with them.



      • Azazel says:

        Cheers Pete. I’ll probably try to finish the assembled armour I have before starting new stuff that needs assembly first. Have I mentioned how much I love assembly?

      • Pete S/ SP says:

        Other than my mate Bill I don’t know anyone who prefers assembly to painting.



      • Azazel says:

        There was a bloke on Dakka I used to talk to a fair bit who loved assembly but was indifferent to painting. We were chatting at one point about kits and he said hed love to assemble a ton of the stuff I have sititng here (plastic kits, forge world, etc) for me – just for the enjoyment that he gets from doing them – shame he lives on the other side of the world!

      • Pete S/ SP says:

        I have a reciprocal arrangement with my frind- he’ll build for me and I paint for him.
