Maggotkin of Nurgle: 2nd Plaguebearer unit complete

Just a quick post this time. Hot on the heels of the last post I have finished my 2nd unit of Plaguebearers for my Maggotkin of Nurgle army.

There's two champions. One is for the previous unit because I had a bit of  mix up... Doh!

I just thought I'd leave a run down of what I have left to do to complete this force:

  • 1 Poxbringer Herald: Banner, a few details to paint, basing.
  • 20 Plaguebearers: Several details to paint, blood/pus, rust/oxidisation, basing.
  • 9 Nurgling Swarms: Highlights, a few minor details, basing.
  • 6 Plague Drones: Wings to paint, few minor detail washes, rust/oxidisation, basing.

So they're all very near completion now. I'll keep pecking away at them but take breaks to work on other things to keep myself interested/motivated.

I think I want to get back to texturing my Necromunda terrain so I can then see how the sealing went when it comes to priming.

I'm also kind of chomping at the bit to get on with my Assassinorum set... We'll see what I end up doing soon.

Until next time, take care.


  1. I love the way they look. Menacing, rotten, daunting. Outstanding work!

    1. Thank you very much. I think they are an experiment that turned out really well.

      I tried to keep the overall colours muted and dark and play with contrasts in colour and texture/finish. The orange of the bases and rust to the grey/green skin. Then the matte finish of the bases, to the slightly more satin of the skin and the glossy areas of detail.

      It could have all ended up a big mess but overall 'm pleased with how it's been turning out :)
