Today I’ve been building up more units to add to my ever growing AoS combined Nurgle army, including some alternative uses from spare kit parts. I got myself a maggoth Lord kit that I’m altering to be greater daemon of Nurgle, and a Lord of plagues as a foot leader for the Nurgle Rotbringers General.
This is the overal built model of the greater daemon of Nurgle, which I’m so far pleased with. The nurglings are added on the base to add some scenic detail (which will please grandfather Nurgle very much!)
From this alteration option, I’ve got two spare beast head parts and three spare rider parts to use for kit alterations. The rider parts were used to create two harbingers of decay by using two spare horses from the chaos knights kit, with a little bit of creativity to combine the mounted rider parts onto the horse.
Now that I’ve got three harbingers of plague in total (see the first one from my last post), I’ve decided to give each rider a role in the factions hierarchy, which covers all three Nurgle force respectively (for example, the arbiter that looks close to being a daemon of Nurgle will lead the daemons of Nurgle respectively).
Next, the maggoth kit also gives you two spare maggoth head parts from the kit. From this I’ve used these and made two beasts of Nurgle, making them look like sea leviathan heads coming out of the swamp.
The maggoth Lord kit has not only given me the option to creatively make a greater daemon of Nurgle and two harbingers of decay, but it has also given another use to create units of beasts of Nurgle. It’s well worth the time and patients to get the best out of the kit when you have spare parts in hand.
Finally, I’ve painted my Lord of plague and one of the beasts of Nurgle from today’s hot weather (thankfully it wasn’t as hot as yesterday). I’m looking forward to getting the second beast of Nurgle model to be done to complete the unit.
That’s all from me for now for this update. My thoughts so far on this collection have been very positive, I’m feeling more self confident to try out new ways to make the most out of my skills in painting, with a constant motivation to be invested into my collection completion.
If you have any questions, post a comment below and I’ll reply back as soon as I can. Thank you! 🙂
