Finished with my 5th squad of 10 Nurgle Plague Marines. This guy seems to be the stand-out of that painting batch – the ForgeWorld Nurgle Sorcerer. I believe his name is “Necrosius” out of the Siege of Vraks campaign books Imperial Armour 7 – The Siege of Vraks III). Any which way, he looks pretty hard core, and I’m really happy how the paint job came out. I himmed and hawed on this guy for a while, not wanting to paint him – not sure why, but pretty pleased with the results.
Kind of a left side view. You can’t really see the converted force weapon I put on him in this pic, but you get the idea. Next pic shows it better.
More of a front-on view. This guy is a slight conversion from the out of the bag Forgeworld mini you’d get. The polearm that he comes with is very thin, brittle, and fiddly, and I just don’t want to have to worry about bending or breaking tiny little parts. So I made a conversion out of him by carving off that hand (his left) and replacing it with a carved down version of Abaddon the Despoiler’s arm (old pewter version of him). I carved down the blade a little bit, as the blade as-is was HUGE, and made the minature a little side-heavy, and frankly it just looked to big and out of place. Seems to be of the right scale and works with this guy. The greenish glow of the blade was done with successive lighter shades of Scorpion Green from the last iteration of GW paint range.
Here he is showing his right side. Lots of details with the cracks in the armor around his belly, his right mutated leg, and the flowing robes around him. Stellar sculpt on this guy.
Back view. The mutated right leg really shows here well, and the Abaddon sword / force weapon is pretty visible here too. The backpack has a nice Nurgly buboe touch to it as well. Them Forgeworld minis are nice – worth every penny in my book. Intense amount of detail and just a pleasure to paint.
