Plague Marines

So in the theme of all things true scale, and in celebration of the up and coming 8th edition, I’d thought I’d break out my Nurgle Plague Marine project. These guys will eventually be part of an army with the Raptors that are still needing finishing and a massive Plague Worm as the centre piece. All in all a lot of work to do.

I wanted the marines to be true scale and the Blight Kings box set is the perfect foundation for them. It’s a lot of work converting but it pays off I think and makes for a far more imposing model. Hopefully they will be intimidating on the battle field 🙂

As for the colour pallette, I chose to go for a dirty bone look with rust, blood and oozing sores, with the flesh parts a necrotic purple and flashes of green on parts of the armour.

Anyhoo I hope you are pleasently disgusted by them.

A few more Nurgle Raptor pics

Here we have a few more pics of my Nurgle Raptors.

They are just a combination of Plague bearers, Raptors, old space marine shoulder pads and 3D printed bits for the bases, oh and a load of green stuff 🙂

They will be painted in the same fashion as the rest of the army. Rusty metal, flesh and bone with hints of green and blood.

Nurgle Raptors

These unpleasent fellows are the Raptors of my Nurgle army.

I have tried to model them to look as if the jump packs have morphed with their bodies with diseased flesh and muscle, that coupled with their daemonic form makes for some fast looking Plague Bearers.

I have two more to go and then it’s onto the Herald and finally finishing my Plague Worm.

Watch this space 🙂

Plague Marine in colour

Hello everyone,

So I’ve been absent for a while and that’s due to being the proud father of yet another bundle of joy. My little future Golden Demon winner has been taking up, as you would expect, a lot of my time but now things are getting more managable and so it was back to the man cave for some much needed creativity.

Getting some paint flowing on my Plague Marines is what I’ve started and I’ve managed to get one finished. Overall I’m fairly happy with him, but I know I can do better. The rest of the sqaud has been started to and in the process of finishing them I’ll refine him to match.

By the way I’m loving what I’m seeing on the Blogs I follow. You guys are an endless source of inspiration and I thank you for it 🙂 Keep up the excellent work.

Plague Marine 1

Hi all! So I’ve got the first of my Plague Marines finished and primed. He took a bit longer to convert due to other things going on but now he’s done and I have to say I’m pretty proud of the brute.

Hopefully will get a chance to paint him next week.

All feedback welcome 🙂
