Hi Az, good to see you floating around.

If you are counting me in the Decembuary task do you want me to link the photos I have thus far for the Monolith I said I would paint?

Hi,

I've been away from Dakka for a couple of months... come back now and check the threads I'm subscribed to.

Love those Celestial Lion Primaris, and the Death Watch look awesome as well. You have a great paint style which makes these models look great!

Thanks, Mad!



And now my final four Ork boyz – from the initial wave, anyway. The first of these is made mostly with fantasy parts armed with Slugga and Choppa. One metal boy with Big Shoota from before plastics were on offer – which is why I converted my others from the plastic boyz.



The other two are a pair of Rokkit Launcher boyz that are also kitbashed from plastic Ork parts with “rokkits” made from some Ork epic parts from the bits box. Their rokkit backpacks were made from greenstuff with some more plastic parts for the spare rokkits. The “rokkit arms” were initially made from fantasy spear arms.

While this is the last of the boyz from the first wave. We still need the two Nobz, the Warboss and a whole pile of grots/gretchin to properly complete the first wave – so still at least three posts (and a bunch more figures) to come…

These Plaguebearer models were released as part of the initial “proper” waves of Nurgle models back in 1991, alongside the seminal Warhammer rulebook – Realm of Chaos: The Lost and the Damned. If you’re at all interested in the background and artwork that got us to where we are today in terms of Chaos and how it fits in with Warhammer Fantasy, Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000, I strongly suggest getting hold of both Slaves to Darkness and The Lost and the Damned. Obviously the books are hard to get hold of – especially on eBay, but they’re worth it. I believe that Forge World is reprinting them for some special events this year, and of course, with this being the internet, .pdf files of them exist. Though of course, I’m sure that if you picked up a copy in this manner, you’d be careful to ensure that you already owned them in book form first.

Anyway, these five are all I have of the initial release. There are 11 sculpts, counting variations and not counting the “Combat Card” Plaguebearer that was never officially released. I’d love to pick up the others, but with Oldhammer being the cool, trendy-retro thing that it’s become, it has gotten much harder to pick up older models in the last few years. I always especially wanted Woundlicker, Snotsprayer and Wormrot, so we’ll see if I manage to get hold of them one day…



Many aspects of Nurgle that remain to this day can be seen on these figures, from the Nurglings capering around their bigger cousins’ legs to the overall appearance. The “joy” that followers of Nurgle hold so strongly is evident in several of their faces, though the dour expressions that have come to typify Plaguebearers specifically can be seen on Vomitrot, who just looks like a miserable bastard.

Of course, the faces of these old Plaguebearers have a striking similarity to those of the Orcs (and Orks) of the day, in that they’re very clearly Kev Adams sculpts, and he seems to have simply given them pretty standard Kev Adams Ork faces and maws, albeit with a cyclopean eye, mono-horn and a more human-ish nose. The similarity also extends across to the work he did for Heartbreaker on a good amount of WarZone’s range, including the Necromutants that will also be (re)drafted into one of my 8th edition 40k forces. Poxwalkers, perhaps?

These figures will be paired with other Plaguebearers from later range refreshes and have a lot of potential use across a number of games. In 40k they fit into the Nurgle Daemons or more general Daemonic army, they’re used as troops in the Death Guard Legion force, they can be used in Age of Sigmar and even in Kings of War in an Abyssal force. And those are just the obvious used for wargames…

Those old plague bearer sculpts look cool, when I first saw them I though "they have a similar pose in some of them to the orcs in the Hero Quest board game" which makes sense given it was similar time, and reading your post highlighted just that

You have done them justice with that paintjob too!

Not sure how you would want me to link the Monolith in that I have done for Decembuary, but with the motivation of the task you presented I have now finished it in time for work to go back into full swing.

If you let me know if you wanted to do anything with the photos I will. Otherwise pop over to my painting log to have a looksie as I will soon have the finished photos up.

Tons of stuff, James. Just finding time to post it here is the hard part. I was spending hours each week here checking other people's threads, then posting updates of my own here afterwards. I've got a lot less "free" time now because I'm spending a lot of time sorting things out for my Dad, so Dakka posts were a thing that had to give. I'm still updating the Wordpress more frequently, and will try to get stuff here when I can.



3rd Wave Warhammer Plaguebearer of Nurgle 2001, Plaguebearer Musician 2007
I’d originally planned to post up a WIP update on my Great Unclean One today, but… it’s not gonna happen. He’s currently outside with the 2-part epoxy I’m using to mount him to his base drying. He’s too heavy to trust superglue, you see. Instead, you get some more of my “warm-up” figures that I started on to get to grips with painting Nurgle Daemons.



This second batch of Plaguebearers are from the third range of the Daemons. The second being an abominably bad range of models sculpted by Aly Morrison and/or Colin Dixon in 1995/96 (the old catalogues are contradictory across their volumes, but at least they credited their sculptors back then). These models were released alongside the Warhammer Armies: Chaos Daemons and Codex: Daemons books, and are a big improvement over the previous range – though I still prefer the originals. The only exception to that is the Musician/Bell Ringer, who was released in 2007 as one of the three command models to go with this range.



What this range of Plaguebearers did well was show the dour and uncomfortable side of Nurgle’s lesser daemons. With many of their limbs either mutating into maggot-tentacles or having them emerge from their bodies, the smiles and grins of Kev Adams’ range were gone, to be replaced by pained and twisted expressions. I didn’t like these models for the longest time, but now they have kinda grown on me.



I honestly don’t even remember when or how I ended up with these. I must have found them in a (Nurgle) box a couple of years ago, then took the first 14 our to paint (these ones, plus the previous post) before they sat in limbo for ages. More recently, I opened up a (Nurgle) box while looking for the Great Unclean One that I’ve been painting for Decembuary and found a bunch more unpainted Plaguebearers from this range and the Dixon/Morrison range. It even turns out that I have all but one of the models in this range, the missing model being #2. Model #1 is not painted in this shown batch.



And so, yes, with the previous, original Plaguebearers painted up combined with the nine here, we have 14 Plaguebearers. Or two groups of 7. No surprises as to how that happened.

After (re?)basing them on 32mm bases, I sprayed all 14 of these Plaguebearers with a light green. At that point, they sat around, unloved for a VERY long time. Recently, (as in a few months ago) I’ve looked up some tutorials and ended up giving them a wash of Athonian Camoshade as per Duncan (and others’) videos. Unfortunately, they were going over white bases, not light green, and it gave these models an affect that I didn’t really like. They then sat for another long time. When I decided to paint the GUO and (hopefully) FW Daemon Prince, I decided to get these guys out again to use them as practice for the big boys. Experiments in varying their tones by using Bugman’s Glow skintone blended into their otherwise-green flesh on body parts like elbows, knees, knuckles and a little on shoulders and elsewhere seemed to work, and things like the purplish worms and tentacles also made their way across to the larger daemons.



Of course, the next time I come to paint some Plaguebearers, I’ll vary the colour somewhat. That is to say I’ll batch paint another 7 or 10 or 14 of them in a new, consistent shade, and when they’re combined and mixed in with these 14, we’ll start to see variation between them within their units. I’m thinking perhaps a batch in light browns, and another in a pale off-white.



Not counting the GUO, I have a little under 30 more metal Plaguebearers left to paint now. Then a pair of original Beasts and then Epidemius to paint to clear out my Nurgle leadpile. I’ve also got the Forge World GUO and a couple of other big boys, plus some Plague Toads and Blight Drones do to in resin. After that I can properly begin to get to grips with the newer plastic releases. I’m not sure how far I’ll get through it all in 2018, but for the time being, I’m keen to smash through a whole lot of Nurgle. Wish me (and my attention span) luck!

I really like the old nurgle daemons, I am not as big a fan of the newer, more comedic sculpts.

I really dig your chosen colour schemes and the choice of the stark bone horns really makes them pop. I like.

Here are some things from the last couple of months:

















































I've pretty much stopped maintaining my P&M blog here, and cranked it up over on Wordpress, so more pics of all of the things can be found over there. I just couldn't keep up with keeping up with everyone's blogs here, and often I'd only have a couple of replies when I posted stuff due to the traffic here, so I made the choice that allowed me to keep up my own blog and free up a lot of Dakka time that became painting time again.

I'll still do photodumps here every so often, because you guys are cool, but I'll probably continue to spend a lot less time on Dakka.

So many cool models cranked out with style.

Really loving the models that are less seen/unique, like the snail , wonderful shell and the idol of Mork or is I think Gork? I too really love the little glowing grots, makes it look like they have been working in the reactor core too long.

Glad to see you back.
