´ello

I've been a very infrequent user on this forum. But I still hope that some of you would like to see the Nurgle army I've been building over the last two years. And also give me some response on it.

Some of you may even have seen it over at Da Warpath :)

Anyway, the idea behind this army, was to make an army for my Nurgle Champion to lead (a model I converted years ago). Hence, I wanted it to be all Nurgle, or at least look "nurgly" enough.

And here's what I've done so far...

Nurgle Sorceror:



Exalted Hero:



Warriors:



Chariots:




Warhounds:

Very nice indeed! Great champion conversion, love the chariots and like the additional touches here and there which make it very unique. A tad heavy on the blood for my taste, but it does tie the army together nicely ;)

dude! Your army has blood all over it!!!..... what's that?....it's ELVEN BLOOD??!

All is forgiven. :) The blood looks great!!! :)

I like the look alot and the army paint scheme is 100% Nurgle. Even the skin on the Dragon Ogres and Giant looks dieseased! Very nice!

My only... minor irk.... with the army is that your Chosen and Warriors are the exact same unit. Painted the same, looks the same, and there's no decernable difference between the two. If you fielded them on the table across from me I'd make you put a piece of paper that said "CHOSEN" next to them so that we wouldn't confuse the two. lol!

I would HIGHLY suggest some sort of conversion or, at the minimum, a new banner that literally says "CHOSEN" for the unit so that there's some way to tell the two apart. (Although I understand why you wouldnt want to drop the $4 trillion dollors to buy the actual chosen models.)

No insult intended, all just my opinions.

Nice job indeed - I'm used to seeing the blood splatter on Khorne armies so it's quite original to see it on an army painted in Nurgle colours.

The Orc chariots look far more appropriate for Nurgle than the rather too-tidy chaos ones.

Looking forward to more!

Thank you very much :) What can I say, I love Nurgle and I love blood!

Tremendous: Yes, I've been thinking about that as well, but I think it helps a little that both the units carry different weapons (and that one of the units is stalked by a warshrine).
And so far, no one has mistaken my warriors for chosen or the other way around :)

Again, thank you for your nice comments. And I'll try to finnish the rest of the lot in the next couple of weeks. And hopefully bringing them to a tournament here in Sweden in late august :)

I have to admit,. I also looked at the two units of Warriors and could not tell which was which.

The army is very nice, and has a suitable Nurglish paint scheme, but I am not sure about the large amounts of blood. Maybe if you toned down the colour, make the blood look like dried blood, then it wouldn't look so out of placed.

Come on guys, the chosen have knights heads rather than the usual warrior heads. Granted I would've loved to see more different head and shields.

Other than that, very cool army. Are there anymore units you plan on adding?

I couldn't tell the difference either! lol

Looks good, but maybe a touch too much blood.
