40k - Blooming Life

 As we move into Spring here in the Southern Hemisphere, a young man's heart turns to Nurgle (the giver of life).

I've decided my next painting projects will be finishing Nurgle Daemons and then rolling into a new Death Guard army (my 4th).

First cab off the rank will be the Daemons. Here I have a Creature Caster (boo hiss) Maggot Daemon from their Kickstarter as well as GW's Sloppity Bilepiper and Spoilpox Scrivener. I then have three Putrid Blight Kings I intend using as Beasts of Nurgle. 

My Nurgle Daemons currently have FW Plague Ogres as my BoN but I had a box of the Blight Kings and the models are too nice not to paint.

This morning I have sprayed them a few different green layers and intend painting them over the next few days.


  1. What happened to the first 3 Death Guard armies?

  2. All sitting downstairs in my cabinets. The first won Best Painted & Best Army at 2002 GW NZGT, the second Players Choice & Best Army at 2004 GW NZGT. They are both heavily converted.

    The third (circa 2013) is 30k Horus Heresy - it's in cabinet in lounge.

    If I've created and painted them, I generally keep them.
