Ibula Malarex #makingdeathguardgreatagain

Here is my contribution to the call the Wier brothers set on their blog "betweenthebolterandme" to correct some anatomical mistakes on the new Death Guard range. Being the thick bloke i am i overread the part where you was supposed to use those parts of the actual range, but well, i had a good fun converting and painting this foul heretic who will soon taste the avenging wrath of brother Crassus´ power gladius as i hope! I used one primaris lieutnants legs as base (changed one lower leg with a tartaros terminators), tartaros breastplate and some milliput to thicken even the primaris thights. I didn´t put that much effort into painting him, just splashed dirt in him and filled some holes and joints in his armor with a mix of water effect and glue to make that nurgle-stuff ooze out of him. The idea behind that was not to use all the typical nurglish features (tentacles, etc.) but to make him look still like a powerful, hard piece of evil killer on the outside, but gooish and soft, necrotic and slimy on the insinde wich would just squeeze out of him when the shell is pierced...filling the gaps...healing him...the blessing of nurgle...

  1. This is a fantastic Death Guard model! I love the texture you created on him, from the physical pitting you gauged into him, to the painting. Also I like how you didn't use any of the new DG pieces to create the model, but still ended up creating a figure that better encapsulates my mental image of what a Plague Marine is. Remarkable!

  2. He is brutal! There is an almost palpable sense of violence emanating from the model. This is what the Death Guard are in my mind.
