As a huge chaos fan and daemons invocator, I couldn't resist buying this daemon prince of Nurgle from Gams Workshop, even if it wasn't completely to my taste. A small conversion work was done to update him to my gimmicks, I mean I added him wings and a tentacled head. I didn't like the head he has so I've found an insectoid head was suitable for a Nurgle daemon. I added even more mandibles, the Nurgle front horn and a long tentacle, with wires at the back of the head to plug into the backpack. I replaced the left hand with the one of a Chaos spawn, and gave him a small, ridiculous tail, also taken from the spawn. I used the exhaust tubes from the original demon to put them between the wings. And finally I added another spike on the left arm. The conversion was done few months ago, then the motivation came back two weeks ago when I began reading the excellent Horus Heresy novels from Graham Mc Neil. There I find the spark of motivation to paint him. The paint scheme isclassical, though some of you may find he's not disgusting enough.
Here's the result !
This model was really fun to paint, because of all those nasty details you have to pick, the funniest parts to make were his belly and the sword. It was good to come back to smaller miniatures after all those huge, neverending projects.
I hope you'll enjoy the Lord of Flies ! :)
