Here are the three Plaguebearers to complete Squad Two, with the models from the Plaguebearer Command box making an appearance:


Detail shots of each (for some reason the relief of the GS work shows up more clearly and sharply without the flash, even though I prefer the overall light balance with the flash. Sigh. I suck at photography):

On the Bellringer I tried a bell at the back of the original pair first of all, but it didn't look right and was barely visible from the front, so I just sculpted one hanging down from inside the largest one; I still like the skull-on-a-stick beater for the bells, which should look nice as a character detail when painted (it'll be a solid brass skull since using an actual skull to hit metal bells with would be dumb as it'd shatter almost immediately, and you'd have to keep replacing it with a new one).

The really anal thing is that if you look closely you can see that the bell I sculpted in has pretty much half the volume of the large one, making it sound an octave higher...and the one at the back is about half way between the two, for the tritone. So he hits the middle one first, then the small one at the bottom and then the middle one at the back to make the Black Sabbath riff. Yes, I actually worked that out. And yes, I get that attached to my fluff

And the standard/icon bearer:

I guess they put the Undivided icon on the model since the Plaguebearer Command box came out with the Chaos Daemons army release to use with Daemons armies as a whole, not just Nurgle ones; but this is a pure Nurgle army so the Nurgle icon was the one I wanted, and a bit of cutting and pinning later this was the result. Note the long scaled finger of the original model, extended into a snake-like appendage curling up and around the pole before sticking out through to top; and this seemed like a good place for the Ogre club to re-appear.

And now a group shot of Squad Two:


I may well start on Epidemius next, since I've been putting him off as a multi-part metal model that's almost certainly going to be a pain in the arse to assemble; sadly no sign of a Finecast Epidemius, or I'd have sold this one on Ebay and bought a Finecast one just for ease of assembly. Oh well, I'll almost certainly make a few customising touches to him, too, so I guess it's time to break out the pinning wire - I have a feeling he's going to need as much pinning as the Great Unclean One did...



As always, more when I have it.

Wonderful sculpting work Svart! I am jealous of your Plague Bearers and wish that I had a couple of them for my own daemon army, especially the command. Keep up the good work man!

It could be the reason for the incursion: "we need 200 more skulls to keep the bell ringing."

That is definitely chortle-worthy.

looks really really nice so far cant wait to see them toads all done up. but this has made me realise that my idea of a nurgle daemons army is a bad idea.

"Death? You want death?
I'm afraid that would be far too boring.

Damn, how come? I was sort of hoping it might inspire people to do more Nurgle, not less...

I'd guess because he'd NEVER get it to look as good as yours

the key to every good DE army makeup. Always have a backup plan, try to take everything in multiples, and use everything you can to your advantage, being a sneaky bastard within the rules, as it were.

yes, but they are NEVER in stock. EVER. people are buying them up from the bitz sites like wild fire as everyone wants blasters per 5 units rather then blasters per 10.

Ooooh I see what you mean.
Well I'd say your best bet, since GW would NEVER give up the opportunity to make money, would be to convert them from the Blast Pistols, or get into resin casting / know someone who does it
