Default When Nurgle and Eldar meet!

I started a thread in Staff Focus, but have decided I need a project log to track this experiment with kit bashings and GS.

I am building a Deamon army that is based on Eldar infected with Nurgles rot. I intend to have various eldar of one sort or another in different stages of corruption. After doing some work on it I imagine that the wraithbone constructs (armour and such) are infected by the diesis and are forming pustules and inflaming with plague.

I will have a few fully formed plague bearers in my main squads of troops. I have so far completed 5 of the partial transformed deamons and I am happy with the results. I have another 3 on the table, plus a couple of fully formed deamons makes about a quarter of the troop selections. I estimate the building process for these will take no longer than 6 months.

Anyway here are the first 5 I have completed. Some fo the GS looks a little off but this is due to the petroleum jelly I use to stop my tools from sticking.









Let me know what you think.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

OK so I have painted the first plague daemon. I am happy with the colour scheme and it has turned out as good as I wanted. Just another 44 to go.

It's looking good! The yellow seems a bit clean for something infested with Nurgle's Rot, but that's just me.

What about a kaki wash över the legs to show how the rot is working it's way down?

I think moriouce hit it on the head. Heavier towards the top as well and then have almost pristine at the bottom to show the spread of the decay which hasn't fully manifested itself yet.

nice idea and very nice conversion. The paintjob looks cool, but i would seek a bit more of contrast between the daemonic flesh and the eldar armor, perhaps using a darker and more brownish skin tone for the daemon part
