    Nurgle dread.

    I've just finished my new Dread for my Death Guard.

    I was going for the traditional humorous GW look. Kind of like the classic Beast of Nurgle

    My painting is a bit crude but I hope it gets the job done.

    Comments appreciated!

    That looks freaking awesome! the eyes are well painted.

    It's good to see a model in 40k that doesn't take itself seriously, this definately ranks up there with the Christmas Orks. Well done. :yes:

    If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.

    Such an adorable little freak.
    I agree, it's awsome. I often have a problem with humorous minis, they tend to be just funny and very silly. But this one is funny in the same way as a killerclown is.
    It's really freaky and I love it.
    The only thing that bothers me a bit (apart from the slightly manical giggeling and a tendency to want to look over my shoulder that this mini produces) is the painting. I'm not an ink-man myself so the abundant use of it on this...thing makes it a bit ...hmmm..inky.
    Why not give it just some more paint on the raised ares of the skin to give it a bit more depth.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I agree, it is indeed inky... I am a crude painter, but when I get more guts I'll try to tidy it up a bit... I'm afraid I'll just make it more sloppy (if that is at all possible) if I try to put some more paint on it.

    It makes me want to laugh, but those TL Lascannons will end my laughter quickly. Great painting and nice use of GW.

    You might want to paint the eyes on that nurgling from red to something more contrasting. At first it just looked like the dread had taken a dump.

    You're hiding behind the 'this is a funny mini' routine.

    I say rubbish to that.

    You've created a masterpiece. This captures nurgle and chaos better than many thing I've seen.

    How did you sculpt those eyes? They're phenomenal!

    Well done!

    Jaffar: Haha... A nice sized dump would be in place. Makes me wish I'd gone in that direction. But point taken, the eyes need to pop. I'll fix it! Paint them blue perhaps to match the violet eye of the big guy...

    Karmoon: Thanks mate. The eyes were actually rather easy to sculpt. I took some paper clips and put a little ball of GS on the top of each one and let it harden. After that I just covered the clip with GS and let i run up the ball to create a sleeve of sorts... Pice of cake really. Try it!

    Nugz: Thanks, I don´t know if the happy face will make people shoot him more or less... The mouth is anyhow the belly(!) from the classic GUO.

    May I suggest something?

    Sliming up the base a bit.

    That'd really add the disgusting factor to the model.

    Simply mix some suitable nauseating shade of green/brown with PVA and apply a dab here and there to the base.

    When it dries - gloss varnish it. Voila - (not quite) instant slime.

    I LOVE the reaction of none chaos players when they go 'Eeewww' at your models. I've found that with the base also diseased.. it's like your models will somehow infect the opponent's models.

    This is great. Especially against those damn fairies and their hankies... always the hankies. *gibbers*

    Acctually I havent done any basing on any of my DG models yet (and I have 1500 pts + painted) so this is my prototype... So far my bases are just painted brown...

    I just hate basing. It's not fun... But I will tart soon and your tips are appreciated!
