Time for the next fortnight challenge entry, this time with the theme "Favorite Character". I went with a Nurgle Daemon Prince to celebrate the loving touch of Papa Nurgle. Chaos has always been my favorite faction in Warhammer and now that I sort of restarted it by digging up old minis it had to be the way to go. Of the four Chaos gods Nurgle has somehow always been my favorite. The disease ridden greenish hordes just somehow caught my eye.
To lead my new forces I of course needed a mighty hero and what would be better than a daemon prince. Sadly I'm not too thrilled about the Jabba the Hutt style aesthetics of Nurgle Greater Daemons etc. and then the regular Daemon Princes just look a bit too clean to be aligned to Nurgle. So I really had no choice but to convert something a bit more suitable for myself. I like the looks of GW's Plague Drones and thought that a bloated corpse fly would be the best shape for a mighty champion of Nurgle to morph into when he is bestowed with more and more of Nurgles gifts. The mini itself is made up of parts from GW's Daemon Prince, Plague Drone and Chaos Spawn box. And a helluva lot of green stuff...
All the oozing pus and paint was done with GW's special effect paints.
Mostly worked out great, but I put a bit too much on his stomach area
and wasn't able to clean it up afterwards. Didn't have time to repaint
the area with the skin tone so I just had to add more pus to get him
done in time for the challenge.
Unusual and very nice!VastaaPoista
Thank you Phil! Bit different from my usual, and I guess from most of the other entries in the challenge too :)Poista

Great painting and conversion! Your prince really looks like he's Papa Nurgle's most favourite champion.VastaaPoista
Thanks! Hopefully looks will help him on the battlefields! Or else I need to get weighed dice...Poista
