Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm looking for advice on how to model a nurgle daemon prince.
I have the Be'lakor model (which is totally AWESOME) but I don't think he would suit as a nurglish prince.
So, I've started thinking. My initial thought was to use my Great Unclean One that I have since the old days, and put some wings on him. The first response I got about the idea was "It won't look like he is able to fly." But what if I use big wings? Like Balrog wings, or such. I think it could be really cool.
What do you think?
You could always adapt the 40k nurgle daemon prince, depending on how 'Space Marine-ish' you think he looks.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
I made mine from a Doom Bull, with carrion wings, gorger head and major greenstuff work. I will post pictures later on
I would give him tiny butterfly or elven wings.
Something full of gas doesn't need much wing to fly.
40k nurgle DP with some conversion work.

Helldorado - fat boy is also something really awesome - I like the more dynamic pose + you can fit a giant fork in his hand like he's ready to eat everything.
You can always convert a giant fying disk/throne or a floating piece of rock.

yeah it's a cool mini but expensive 59$ although it's one of the cheapest mini's they have.
If you really want wings the 40k DP and the ultraforge mini probably are the best option.
Great unclean one on a flying piece of decoration is the cheapest option.
Great unclean one with wings will never look right.

I would use whatever you have available/think looks cool for your model, and not worry about making it "look" like it can fly. I'm a WYSIWYG nut, but only to accurately represent the "as fielded" units, i.e. marauders with flails should have flails, not hand weapons and shields. Warriors with halberds should have halberds, not hand weapons and shields or two hand weapons.
Since flight is an innate ability of the daemon prince, and not a purchaseable upgrade, no one has any grounds for complaint if your model doesn't have wings. After all, it is a supernatural creature. Superman doesn't need wings.
