Four Year Blog Anniversary - Nurgle Army Time!

On the day four years ago I started this blog. I had no idea what this would lead to. Quite early on though a Nurgle project took shape starting with creating a warband which then evolved into an army. This has since then been my main focus.

So to celebrate the anniversary I thought showing the army so far would be suitable.

There has been other projects as well, in particular the 40k Nurgle warband (link), The Adventure Starter Set (link) and the Exorcists Space Marines (link) but that is for another post.

Thanks for all your visits and comments so far. All very much appreciated and inspiring!!!

So here it is - the Nurgle army so far:

Overall army:

One thing I have done lately but have not posted about is creating movement trays for the units lacking them. Also done an overhaul of the bases to get a more homogene look. This will likely be a never-ending project, adding stuff for a long time ahead. A quick calculation using WFB3 + RoC gives roughly 3400 pts.




Leaders and others:

Still have to paint my army general and army banner (link) but the recent Nurgle Palanquin is the general at the moment. Here flanked by my latest additions. Behind them a few of the older once including a Troll, an Ogre and the Zebrotaur.




Beastmen / Creature unit:

This unit includes mostly C38 Beastmen but also a few random creatures such as the Giant snail. The leader in the Minotaur Lord.




Cavalry unit:

Will use these as Marauder cavalry. All are converted to a lesser or higher degree.



Chaos Dwarfs unit:

The first unit I finished. 14 chaos dwarf.



Thugs / Marauders / Warriors unit:

A mix of Thugs, Marauders and Warriors. Current plan is to paint a lot more of these and have separate unit for the three classes.



Creatures unit:

A mix of creatures and monsters from Citadel and Asgard and even a Giant. Haven't decided what rules to use for these. Possible Beastmen rules.




Whats's next:

With completed units my focus is characters and bigger miniatures. Working on prepping the Citadel Chaos Kegox Dragon at the moment. Will do a post of this soon. A baggage train and war altar is also being worked on.

That's all folks. Hope you have enjoyed my blog so far!

  8. They look amazing Don, just a superb vision all together on the table top, creepy and freaky, just that way chaos army should be. They are really coherent. Can't wait to see them in a game.

  14. I've been following your progress with some zeal. Both the conversions and painting are of a meticulous standard. The army is breathtaking and the basing is glorious. The whole thing is nothing short of sublime.

  16. Happy Anniversary!

    It is really lovely army and it's always great to see what you paint next. Your choice of colours and how you mix them are really quite inspired.

    I love the work you have put into the conversions and the breadth of the miniatures you have used. I still love those bases and the way you have done the shields.

    Nice to see the army all together. Look forward to seeing Kegox!

  20. Amazing... One of the most beautiful army I've ever seen. I have watched these pictures many and many times, finding new details each time. Conversions, colors, painting, the choice of the miniatures, I love everything. And it has a very typical style and can be immediatly recognized as your army and not another clone of a eavy-metal-style-army.
