I'm plugging away at painting 70+ Plaguebearers at the moment, and it's going slow and steady. After I basecoated and then washed them yesterday, it occurred to me that I needed a Daemon Prince for my Fantasy army. I can't always roll with the big man every game, so I went searching through my bitz to kit bash a Prince of Filth to lead them.
I'm a big believer in rewards in hobbying. Painting is never my thang, but I set the reward for getting a bunch of them done, and it motivated me to finish the Plaguebearers (well, at least the first stage of them), and then get to my favorite thing in the hobby: converting.
So I went tearing through my bitz and came up with this guy. The body is a Forgeworld bile troll. One arm and the axes are from the minotaur kit. The head is leftover from a giant I put together years ago and the wings are from the plague drone kit.
If Fantasy sorta peters out, he's going on a round base. I love the story of Ignatius Grulgor from the Horus Heresy books; this could be him once he reappeared in the Medusa Campaign as a Daemon Prince. That expression on him just looks so pissed off and tormented, perfect for a prick like Ignatius!
