3.5 Wave Warhammer Plaguebearers of Nurgle Command 2007

If you’re sick of Plaguebearer posts, you’re not alone. I’m sick of them myself. The good news then is that this post represents the last of all my metal Plaguebearers painted and completed. Sure, I’ve got a ton of plastics to paint up at some stage, but since I ain’t touching my plastic kits until ALL of the older metal is done, we have a reprieve.

I’m sure they’ll still feature in some other posts. I should do an “Nurgle Daemon Army-so-far” post sometime soon and I’ll do a personal Squaduary wrap-up in the next few days, though I still need to put the final, finishing touches on the Wolfpack first. I’ll do the same for Fembruary, though that will be closer to the end of the month, or even the first weekend in March, since the month ends on a Wednesday and then I’ll need a few days to photograph and then write up a blog post. And of course, there will be my final February wrap-up post encompassing everything I got finished this month, but after that I can only see them turning up in batreps or subsequent “Nurgle Daemon Army-so-far” posts as the force continues to build up.

Here they are, united with the original batches of “green” Plaguebearers.

    • Cheers Mark. That’s the plan with these guys. The metal’s been waiting a lot longer after all, so it’s only fair to give it preferential treatment in the queue.

  2. Excellent work and congrats on meeting your targets! Something random always seems to catch my eye when looking at people’s minis. This time around it was the metal on the weapons. I noticed that their metal weapons have a very matte appearance. Which looks quite different from the standard ‘black undercoat/dry brush metallic’ approach. Are you using Non-Metallic-Metal techniques on these or something else? Whatever you’re doing, it looks quite nice! 😀

    • Sorry – didn’t see this (or the above comment) until just now. The dull metal on these is really simple to do. I just use a flat coat of Vallejo Plate Mail Metal Surface Primer over (usually) black undercoat with a brush (not drybrushed.) Sometimes/often I’ll give it a light drybrush with Army Painter Plate Mail Metal, then once it’s completely dry just give it a wash/glaze with Army Painter Dark Tone. Some of the Nurgle Swords will have a 1:1 mix of Dark Tone (black) and Strong Tone (dark brown).
      I find it creates a nice, flat metal look.
      Depending on what I’m painting, I’ll sometimes do the sharpened edge with Vallejo Model Air Chrome before washing, and when I do wash them I’m careful to wick away too much excess with a brush to avoid puddling.
