Your Nurgle dudes are looking great, in as much as a disease and maggot ridden lump of flab can! The Hell Dorado guy makes a great objective marker, I love it when you can make a link between two different miniature ranges seamlessly. The bases look grand as well, great stuff Theo.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I really like the plaid purple skin tones over the greenish hues normally seen on Nurgle models. I really want to stress the fact that they were human once and have succumbed to the influence of Nurgle more than all things green = Nurgle. Once I start to develope my demon side of the army I’ll think about doing more green skin tones, but I just like the sickly rotting flesh, which may become my demon colors too.

Anyway my Maggotkin army has exploded like unchecked Corona Virus. I found some great deals on Maggotkin starters (so I bought them )
My Army looks like this to pull from.
5starter boxes of Maggotkin
5Lord of Blights
10Pusgoyle Blightkings
25 Putrid Blightkings on foot
1 Lord of Plagues
The Wurmspat Underworlds warband
The Glottkin
And conversion parts
The previously posted objective victim
The old Mordheim Town Cryer
And a new add on from the dents and dings.

A plastic mammoth from somewhere which has no ears, tusks or tail. Perfect starting point for a converted Harbinger of Decay. Hopefully no one would have a problem with it being on a larger base (shown on a 50x90 oval above).

Painted my test Pusgoyle yesterday.

Started on the Wurmspat.

And the old town crier is ready for a repaint.


Stay safe. Working at a hospital I should entertaining right now .

The pusgoyle is great, the maggotkin minis really lend themselves to washes and contrast. A good start to the Wursmpat as well, I am also very interested to see how you turn the mammoth into your Harbinger of Decay.

Thanks everyone. The Pusgoyle is a model I’m really proud of, came out a lot better than I hoped.

Did some assembling this morning.that Glottkin is a big Mother

5” round base is huge, pusgoyle and Blightkings for scale. The Blightking is also larger than a typical human, so he really is massive.

WIP of the mammoth, more done since this, but it’s set up so a model with a 20mm base can stand on its back.


I’ll have more to show soon....ish.

Thanks guys. I’ll be checking out other threads shortly, I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus with reading threads lately . Really burnt out of most hobbling and time crunch with The Coronavirus stuff happening. All three of my kids and my wife (teacher) were on spring break this week and I had taken some time off to hang out with them. The pandemic has made it into much more hang out time and togetherness. Lots of Monopoly played until people cry , tv watching (love it or list it) and teaching how to drive as both of the twins got their permits.

Assembled the rest of the swarm and got them primed today.

Also assembled about a dozen more Blightkings, no photos of them yet.

More to come and lots for me to catch up on shortly.

Excellent stuff but Monopoly? Surely you have enough Zombicide painted for a game of that instead? After all the family that slays together stays together.........

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Yes, covid19 and Monopoly, the doom of mankind. I’d play Zombicide, but my wife won’t because of zombie-hookers and other oversexualized models. Plus my kids still aren’t interested at all in my games .

12:01 tonight starts a 30 day stay in place order here in St. Louis. So my wife and kids are stuck for 30 days with no school or friends in person. I in the other hand will get to return to work at the hospital (last day of a five day planned vacation), still unsure if I’ll be working at church or not as the stay in place order limits even non essential not for profit work. Also with no services allowed (no gatherings of more than 10 people), it’s hard to justify working when there’s less revenue coming in. It would be a great time to get some big projects done, but we heed the law as we have been told to.

No pics yet, but I polished off a bottle of Reikland fleshshade on the Glottkin. He is a huge beast to paint Nd trying to find a good way of holding him is hard as all the horns are either sharp or have sharp bits on them.

Managed to assemble and prime the last 18 Blightkings models I had purchased. Tons of left over bits from the 5 start collecting boxes. Each of the 10 Pusgoyles I have have options for riders, so I have I believe 10 upper bodies for more Blightkings, which just need legs to make two more units worth of dudes. All the options from these kits allow for great customization. I may need to start practicing with putty to make legs or maggot lower halves like centaurs.

Pics later. Cheers.

Edit: wife and kids went out to grab crafting stuff for themselves. So here’s pinky-McGlottkin.

He got some more washes done to him, and I think the rest of the swarm will have these dark blue wings instead of the purpley wings. Just have to do the tops of the wings to decide on them.

Sitting down for more painting now .

Thanks Graven.

Well last bit of work, probably, before returning to work today.

Next to Glottkins leg.

Glottkin hasn’t more layers than an Ogre.


Still a long way to go, but that stupid job (which I shouldn’t complain about with all the people out of work) is going to slow things down a bit.

Thanks guys, they really knocked it out of the park with these designs and models. Plus I’m having loads of fun with painting them, so they really did a solid on design.

Took a few minutes before I left and added purple to give more depth and bruising effect.

Purple Nurgle Nurple, say that three times fast

So not so quick update, and non-gaming related.
Spoiler:
So I took a job as a janitor in the Hospital 6.5 years ago for many reasons. Most importantly it worked around my kids (who were young then) schedule for school, worked around my wife’s schedule (teacher), and had great benefits. Four years ago. Finished my Bachelors degree, which was paid for (one of the benefits) by the hospital, and have been trying to move up in the chain with many roadblocks in the way. Family sickness and death have kept me from truly pursuing a change as well as the kids schooling needing my schedule to be flexible. This year they all started high school and have done fairly well in getting themselves off in the mornings. Combined with my moms health stabilizing and a better nursing facility for my wife’s grandmother, has meant pursuit of a new position was on again. I interviewed a few weeks ago for a spot and totally killed it in the interview, was really sure I had the spot. I got called for a second round interview and nailed it, absolutely sure I got the job, especially when they started with introducing me to the rest of the team as John, the guy taking the spot at xxxxxx and telling me about my office. Was introduced to not only my bosses boss, but their boss and the Vice President over that section of the business and having a great 15 minute unscheduled discussion that ended in a “It’ll be great to have you aboard!” From the VP.

Then the Coronavirus hits big . Hospitals are in a crazy fight right now to protect employees and patients. All non-essential surgeries are cancelled, office employees are put on furlough as they are not seeing patients or scheduling appointments, nurses in surgeries have only emergency cases so are asked to take vacation time. Basically one side of the business shuts down as the other side braces for the tsunami of Covid cases to come. We currently have two at my facility, and one of our sister facilities lost a nurse who had contracted it . The date set to call me back to offer me the position passed and when I tried to contact the people who interviewed me they had all been inundated with dealing with patient appointment cancellations, office closures and prep work for the crisis. Got a late email saying the position is being temporarily put on hold until things shake out. Yesterday I followed up to see how things were progressing to be told I’d know at the end of the day. End of the day comes with no answer, sleepless night, long morning with no reply. Worn out and trying to get the kids started with the online schooling which started this morning.

Finally phone rang, informed I got the job, but pay and details are not worked out yet. Start date still in the air as training classes have been put on hold until further notice.

In the end, super excited. Can’t wait to begin this new chapter in my life. I may be laying down the mop at the hospital, but still going to work it out at the church on the side.

One of my co-workers said to me the other day. “John, you deserve this, it’ll happen. It’s just taking a pandemic to slow you down, but it’s not stopping you .”

Many of you have been on my blog for YEARS, and I thank you. It’s been a hard, long, difficult time. In the end though it has been worth it. I know others are struggling right now. Ive been lucky that I have two jobs that I can still work at while many others are being laid off and trying to make ends meet. All I can suggest is keeping your nose to the grindstone even when it feels like you or it has been worn through.

It gets better.

Thank You all again.
John Mathews-Theophony
