Well, I’ve started painting my Nurgle Terminator Lord, and I’ve been hemming and hawing for several weeks now on how to paint him up. He’s not finished, but I think I’m in a place where I’m happy with where he’s at and I think the scheme is really going to work. He’s my first Nurgle Chaos Marine paint project, so he’s setting the tone for how the whole army is going to look. Remember this guy doesn’t have any arms because he was magnetized, as described here.
My Chapterhouse Studios Space Marine heads just arrived today – they’re going to be for my Nurgle-themed Raptors. Can’t wait for the other parts to get here. Here’s the heads parts that I’m going to be using: http://chapterhousestudios.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=85_112&product_id=174 I think they’ll look sufficiently Nurgly / Death Guard-esque to be convincing helmets for Nurgle Raptors.
I’ve put several of these guys together now (see this post), so I felt like it might be a good idea to show how I’m actually doing this. It’s a pretty involved process. See the Project: Nurgle Obliterators post for the list of materials needed to make these guys. I’ll reference a lot of them in the step by step process laid out below on how to make them.
In my work building a Nurgle-themed Chaos Space Marine army, I’ve been looking for a uniquely-Nurgle way to have heavy support options for my list. Reading the Codex, and all the meta-game information on-line, there’s a real value in having Obliterators in one’s list. I wasn’t originally a big fan of obliterators from a fluff perspective, but they have certainly grown on me to the point that I’m actually a really big fan now of the concept behind them. To add to my oblit-fickleness, and something that I’ve been torn for some time, is that I’m not a huge fan…
Got the plastic Chaos Lord Terminator at the local hobby shop recently. I decided to do my best to come up with a terminator lord that has Nurgle-themed, whether I decided to give him the Mark of Nurgle or not, I wanted him to fit with the army. Of course, with my recent decision to magnetize, he was the first out of the blocks to get the treatment.
