WoC Update - Nurgle Warriors
As I mentioned in my previous article, I've been working on my Nurgle Warrior unit in a desperate attempt to get them ready for Trickster's Blade. After the major green-stuff (GS) work was completed, the Bestigor arms were fitted and any major gaps were filled using more GS.
While the conversion as a whole is a little fiddly, the liberal use of GS and plastic cement ensure a solid enough join once the drying process has completed. Amusingly for me, the command section of this unit was amongst the easiest conversions in the unit, with very little GS work required.
To keep with the theme of the army, the unit is escorting a collection of prisoners which have been captured from the defending Empire forces that the army encounters. I'm not sure yet if these slaves will come from another empire province or whether I'll stick with the livery I've used in the Tzeentch unit. Either way, they'll provide a pleasant distraction from painting the warriors as time goes on. Another pleasant distraction will come in the form of Nayr, the Minotaur that accompanies this unit to war. Serving as a similar plot device as the Wolves in my Tzeentch units, the Beastmen models will not only reinforce the fluff around my Nurgle element, but will also act as points of interest, allowing me to make my army a little more unique.
With the construction process complete, I can move onto the painting side of things. While the majority of the painting process will be similar to my existing units, I'm intending to make some minor alterations to the scheme to give the unit a distinct 'Nurgle' feel.
Catch you all later
