Chaos Sorcerer reworked

Initially when I painted this Nurgle Sorcerer, I envisioned him as still in his white Death Guard armor.  It really didn't fit the overall color scheme of the army, and after a suggestion from my girl, I reworked him a bit. I like this better; he's a little more interesting now and less Horus Heresy. Seriously, who could keep their armor white for 10,000 years?

Started a test figure for my Traitor Guard too. I think the yellow will contrast well with the rest of the greens in the army. I forgot how tedious a normal size figure was to paint, it felt tiny after all those Marines!

Nurgle Helbrute

Finished up painting the Helbrute this weekend, since it was cold AF outside.

Very simple color scheme, just some brass for the armor edges, and Elysian Green for the armor. This was washed a whole bunch, with Agrax and Sewer Water mostly. I spattered blood on it to add to that nasty, unclean look. I highlighted the armor some after the washes dried to make it pop a little more.

Pretty happy with him, and I like how the textured bits of Agrellan Earth came out for it's cracked and warped armor.

In other news, I got the Traitor Legions book, and there is a TON of good stuff in there. Reading it this morning I was overwhelmed; so many possibilities for our beloved Death Guard. I think they are clearly one of the early winners from the book. They got even tougher. D-FENS!

Nurgle Heldrake

It's pretty much close to being done, other than the base and a few minor highlights. I hope she'll be vomiting on Loyalists soon!
