Nurgle Contemptor Dreadnought

I love simple paint schemes!  This chap only took me five hours or so to paint.

This model forms the effective start of a small Nurgle contingent for use with my main Heralds of Desolation Chaos Space Marine army.  I’m still working out the details but my plan is for this warband to be significantly older than the Heralds, so much so that whatever livery they possessed has long since decayed away.

Next up should be some Plaguebearers and a CSM Nurgle Sorcerer.

Nurgle Contemptor Dreadnought – WIP 1

Keeping with my Nurgle force, I decided to adapt the Betrayal at Calth plastic Contemptor for the service of all things icky. 


The build itself was fairly easy as the kit is once of the simplest to put together. 

The only real difficulties, if you could call them that, we’re shaving off the Corpse-God’s iconography and cutting out the sculpted helmet so that I could put in the Aspiring Champion’s one from the Chaos Marine box. 

The icon on the chest is a wet green stuff (two parts yellow to one part blue) cast of the Nurgle icon from the Chaos Vehicle sprue. I elected to use a sculp as wet green stuff is very pliable, unlike the plastic original. I used BluStuff to make the cast, if you haven’t tried it yet I strongly suggest you do, it’s awesome!

I dotted some green stuff boils here and there so I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to start painting as I’m sure it’ll take some time to properly cute in this accursed heat. 

Typhus – Herald of Nurgle

It’s so good to both build and finish a model that’s been sitting on the shelf for a while, therefore I am very happy to present my interpretation of Typhus, the Herald of Nurgle.

This model was an absolute joy to paint, so much so that my next project is going to be a Nurglefied Contemptor Dreadnought from the Betrayal at Calth box.  You might notice that I didn’t include the Nurgling that goes on the base, I thought about putting the little guy on, but I don’t really like the older Nurgling design and all my plastic ones are reserved for a far bigger project…

Orpheo’s Lament – Knight Paladin of House Orpheo

Well, it’s certainly been a while, but there’s a very good reason for that.  It was my birthday near the beginning of June and with some of the Hobby Money gifted, I decided to pick up a copy of Imperial Knight Renegade (available from Element Games for £99.99) and I got to work.  Here’s the first completed unit.

House Orpheo is a home brew Knight House which is void-based due to reasons I’ll detail in a separate article. That piece will also reveal why their Knights ensue heraldic markings (well, I had to come up with some kind of excuse…), I hope to have it up within a week or so. 

As for the other Knight from the box, that’s going to be a Nurgle-aligned monstrosity which I’ll start on soon.
