Default Pestilent Plog: Nurgle Warriors of Chaos.

What to do to get myself back into the Hobby??

After talking with the missus about ideas a shared Army to try and get something finished and playable it came down to Dwaves or Nurgle WoC, a great idea but we couldn't agree
and although her painting is good I couldnt bring myself to hand over conversions anyway...

So what's the plan? Well I went with the Nurgle and she took the stunties, Doesn't really cure the getting things done issue though.

With that in mind we made a purchase and paint pact, no new boxes of minis till the previous one is painted. We both went mad buying stuff before with other armies and ended up with large piles of minis which we are both convinced has kinda killed our enthusiasm for actually laying paint to mini

So off to the local GW to get a box of warriors and Army book for me and a box of Dwarf Warriors for her (she'll buy the book on her pay day), typically No WoC book, so Dwarf book for her and a box of Warriors of each type ( Now she'll buy me my book on her payday which also happens to be GW delivery day).

For me conversion is king so time to get at those Warriors..

Working a rank at a time from the back, guessing at about 15 for a unit ( no book ) the first job is to get rid of the pesky Undivided iconography off those shields and make the Warriors a bit more Nurglely without going overboard.
Simple horn cut offs and single central replacement to give the guys a more followers of Nurgle feel.
Bit of GS (well brown stuff in this case,, no, not that type) to hide the cape fur join, horn joins etc





Now shields, that is where the interest really is with WoC, such a large area waiting on attention, almost a shame GW put stuff on it and stopped people doing their own detailing (I miss all the wacky hand painted stuff people used to do).
Gonna pretty much wing it on these, grabbing all ideas Nurgle and GSing them.

Here is the first shield with a Forgeworld Death Guard shoulder pad that inspired it.




Now to get some more done.

Got to love nurgle, the conversion possibilities are endless.
And it must be great to have someone building a new army parallel to you, keep the enthusiasm up.
Look forward to seeing more.

I look forward to seeing how you stretch your creativity to fill in so many shields...

Thanks for the comments so far folks.

Just a couple of shield fronts to post up this time...

I said I was gonna wing it, so Classic Fly with a little junk on a cord.


Papa's Kiss.


Sorry bout the picture quality. I really need to get a new camera but you know how it is, camera Vs minis, minis win.

Two more shields to think up and GS and then the back row ( I say back but I'm sure my favs will shuffle forward lol) is ready for paint.

A fantasy log? A Vash one at that? God does exist.

Just another couple of Shields yet again.

Tri Tongue


Plague Bearer face.


I have a sneaking suspicion that the second one will shuffle from the back rank somewhat because atm it's probably my favourite.

Well thats the rear rank done and Iv'e started prepping the next one, gonna have to start fishing around for some more design ideas in a couple of shields time.

The idea is to make this unit up to 15, so with the the 2 Warriors left from this first box and an older metal Champion I found lurking in my 40K bits box I am annoyingly 2 short of the full 15. So I can see another box of Warriors in the not too distant future.Not sure if that breaks the Paint before next Purchase rule or not.

Still no army book as the local GWs automatic ordering system has failed to order so next Thursday before I can plan anything out which leaves me with a bit of a dilemma.
Champion, Standard and Musician is it safe to just make them or should I wait for the book in case they need a specific weapon or some such modeled up??

Those are some splendid shields! I like the helmets as well. I'm really curious to see the finished unit.

Thanks for the comments.

Slow week on the hobby front as real life intrudes.

Finished the basic prep and conversion work on the rank and file.(Not the shields.)


Prepped a Champion, not overly keen wrong weapon but a temporary stand in until I dig up another few warriors.


Started a 25x50 filler tile to bulk the unit up to 15 ( again until I get some more warriors).



I have painted a test mini, but due to my terrible camera I can't even manage a half decent picture until daylight.
In other news a box of Dragon Ogres has been rather surprisingly gifted to me so they will be up for the Nurgle treatment soonish.
