Hello Heresy I have been playing Pre-Heresy Death Guard since the Newest Codex came out and well lately I have been in search of a new army. I have tried the Necrons, the Tau, the DA, the BA, The Orks, and a few SM styles of play and I kicked them all to the curb. So I have decided to create a grotesque Nurgle army. My first Project that I have been working on is my Defiler. I never use them in my lists but I decided it would be a fun project and I could use if as a part of my Display in a tournament that I will be attending in about 6 months.

Here are the starting pics. (does not look like a full defiler yet but thats why its a WIP >.>)






Any techniques, items used, comments and/or suggestions would be appreciated (links to photos would be wicked as well). I never have used GS, and I have always used Loyal Death Guard so the deformities were never something I had to take into consideration.

Thanks everyone!

Cheers,
Chaosftw

I like it. cant wait to see it morph into a defiler, and for someone who has never used greenstuff you are doing extreamly well. hope you keep up the good work.

It's going to be interesting to see how you go from Rhino to Defiler, for sure.

A couple of things occur to me:

• Are the end of those 6 cylinders meant to be rough like that? If so, one thing that can make them look more interesting is to make short lengthwise cuts from the 'muzzle' of the cylinder and then slightly separate the sides along the length of the cut, so the cylinder splays out a little at the end; you can either fill the gaps with GS or leave them open.

• The 'carpet' of GS is interesting, but looks a little single-textured. When doing stuff like that I would suggest do the round bits at the centre of each flower-like pattern separately, first, and give them a very smooth texture - rubbing them gently with a wetted finger is a good way to smooth out the surface of the GS and get a very even surface. Then, when those are cured hard, add the other stuff around it and give it a different texture. This way the final GS area has a lot more variety and depth to it, which also carries through to what you can do with paint effects afterward.

You might want to have a trawl through the Nurgle 101 tutorial in my sig, as well; it has a variety of things that can be done to help turn things into loyal subjects of the Lord Of Decay...

The greenstuff is very characterful.

I am looking forward to seeing more of this.
Nice work on the gs man, looking forward to seeing more.
Nice GS work, I look forward to seeing how gribbly it becomes!

Thanks all, yes I am quite excited to see how it turns out myself. Only time will tell.

The Nurgle 101 link is broken.

As for the cylinders they are not suppose to be rough. They will be sanded down.

As for the rest of your suggestions I will attempt to try things if all else fails with this model it will at lteast be a good test subject. :)

Listen to Svartmetall
He is Nurgles greatest champion.
Haha I have seen his work for 2-3 years not if im not mistaken. I am well aware.


Thanks for the words of encouragement! I will hopefully have more up soon!

I think Relicnews itself is having issues right now, the forum won't open at all; try again tomorrow or something :)
Ya figured something like that. I will definitely do that. I am really pumped about switching over form Pre-Heresy I just want to GS everything. I feel like a child in a candy shop again!

Alright so Work has been stupid busy and I have had 40k tournaments for the last two saturdays. So not too much progress but progress none the less.

Ill start with the updates

First are my Melta Gun Marines, No green stuff yet but they are positioned and ready to be 'Nurglafied' lol




Here are some more marines. What I did was is Create 10 that have bolter held in one hand and CC weapon in the other, Then 10 marines with bolt pistol and CC weapon, and the last ten will be bolter being held in both hands. Then once they are all done I will then interchange them to make 3 squads. (hope that makes sense)









Here are a few great shots from a tournament I was in with my Pre-Heresy Chaos. The first is my Daemon Princes baiting the Eldar Boat and the bikes then turned around and Ate them >.>


These are a play by play in a City Fight game. Where the other Chaos guy (Green/Black Vanilla Marines) thought he could push his whole force down one road, then I was able to immobilize his lead and rear rhino's which basically got him stuck and well... this is what happened....

The jetpack one with the flames looked awesome. Got any close-ups on it?

Good job on the good ol' column block :D Always so rewarding when you can get it done.

I think the symbols of chaos are a good indicator that they are in fact Post Heresy
Hehe actually no the army is PRE HERESY, but I arrived at the tourney and brought the wrong vehicle case and had all my Post heresy Rhinos, LR's, and Preads :S but no one really noticed .... lol SHHHHH

Lol Chaos.

Go to Belloflostsouls.com and check out Bigred's Death Guard. Stunning army.

Liking that marines mohawk lol
Ya I have seen their Pre Heresy army its been there for several years. That among other sources were my inspiration to start Pre Heresy. But with the endless possibilities with going Post Heresy I just have to convert.



Side Note:
Been working like a mad man hoping to have a big update by next monday!

BE PREPARED!!!
