From the Shed: Nurgle Daemon Prince

This is going to be the leader and centrepiece for my army- I really enjoyed painting him up and went to town with the washes and detailing. I imagined him as a Chaos Marine who has achieved his aim of becoming a Chaos Champion, rather than ending up as a Chaos Spawn, as seen in the previous post. Those 40k fans of a certain vintage will remember the Chaos campaigns you could run from the Realms of Chaos books. I alwasys fancied that sort of narrative driven skirmish campaign. I guess Necromunda fulfills that need now but I may yet go back to the old Rogue Trader ideas.

Cheers,

Pete.

  1. Since I can’t find the most appropriate words to describe this denizen of Nurgle, I’m gonna have to go with “truly disgusting”! 😉 Despite how it sounds, that is meant to be a compliment!

  2. Nice centerpiece of infective leadership!

  3. Jeff Groves says:

    Very nice! You’ve been quite productive!

  4. You certainly are churning these chaps out at the moment! Though I have to add at an incredibly high standard of quality too, as said above he is truly disgusting, but in a good way!

    Cheers Roger.

    Awesome looking DP, Pete! You’re really wanting to make me drag mine out and get it painted. Which reminds me I’m really going to need to pick out a summer painting project…

    A really complex figure to paint – nice job! 🙂

      Thank you. Yeah there is a lot going on – I stuck to the same colour palette as I used for the Death Guard character models but I added more washes aand glazes.

      Cheers,

      Pete.

    Another great figure, Pete!

  8. Excellent Pete. I love me some Nurgly goodness, or should that be badness

    Great work on the nurgle Pete, I’m starting to get to know them pretty well now!

  10. Steve says:

    Great work, Pete- a fearsome looking model 🙂

  11. Wudugast says:

    Nice! I really like that model, one I must pick up for myself some day. I wonder if, when the new Death Guard book is out, there will be crusade rules to allow a champion or chaos lord to work their way up to become a daemon prince (or devolve into a chaos spawn!)?

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Thanks. Worth picking up- the resin isn’t too bad to work with.

      That sort of champion progression would be great- like in the old Realms of Chaos books.

      Cheers,

      Pete.
