It lives! Lumpy the Nurgle Daemon Prince is painted!

May 11, 2017 Posted by cranky

Hey everyone, Cranky Old Gamer here and I excited to finally say that a project that has long been on my “to be completed” shelf is finally done. A long while back I started a little conversion project for a Nurgle Daemon Prince, who I named “Lumpy” (for hopefully apparent reasons). Well, he sat in my “needs to be painted pile” for long enough, and I’m happy to say I’m really happy with how he turned out. It didn’t take me too long to paint him, and maybe it was just that I was working on other projects. But I got inspired to come back to him. What do you think?


Nurgle Chaos Spawn Conversions

June 3, 2015 Posted by cranky

I’ve wanted to convert up some Chaos Spawn for my 40k Nurgle CSM force for some time. I wasn’t too thrilled with the stock models, although they did have some nice bits in that kit, and didn’t look too Nurgley. You know me – when it comes to my Nurgle CSM force, it pretty much has to be a labor of love conversion. So I started on these conversions a while ago, set them aside to work on some other stuff, and finally got around to finishing them. Super happy with the results! Check inside to see the results!


Nurgle Helbrute Conversion Commission

April 17, 2015 Posted by cranky

A little while ago I was asked to do another Nurgle conversion commission from my new friend Tobie, and I was excited for the challenge. This was off the heels of creating a Nurgle Rhino hatch with the erupting spine, and he had a need for a Nurgle Helbrute to complete a collection of Helbrutes for each of the four factions of Chaos. I was happy to take on the commission for trade of some painting services, and I’m pleased to say the commission is complete and in the hands of it’s new owner, getting painted up! Check out the pics below to see the green-stuff customization to the basic helbrute kit…


The Story of “Lumpy”: A Rotten Inspiration for a Nurgle Daemon Prince Conversion

January 10, 2015 Posted by cranky


One night not too long ago, while I was painting some Warmachine Khador infantry, I got suddenly inspired to get back to my love of the 40k Nurgle CSM / Daemons faction. I had lots of bits recently sorted and recently purchased some FB Vargheists for some CSM Spawn conversion, and the wings were super cool and rotted looking. I had bought some bits to build a Tzeentch Daemon Prince as well (one of my many back burner projects… oy…) and then a flash of inspiration hit me. What followed was a marathon night of converting and building into the wee hours…


Chaos Space Marine – Nurgle Rhino Hatch commission

November 3, 2014 Posted by cranky

A recent request came in through this blog to do a custom commission “Nurgle Rhino Top-Hatch” similar to the ones I did for my Nurgle CSM army. The request came from a posting of a Facebook battle report and link to some pictures that were took at a local gaming shop >Heroic Knight Games in Issaquah, WA. I spent a lot of time getting my Nurgles custom-built and I’m happy to share the love! Check out the details of the bits used and the pics of the top hatch – all hail Father Nurgle!
