The Others: 7 Sins – Gluttony Faction Completed! Also – Nurgle’s Children 2019 #18: Proxy Plaguebearers of Nurgle

The Others: 7 Sins - Gluttony Faction

Today we have a completed boardgame faction. Not quite as impressive as a finished army, but hey, 8 figures fits into that same kind of size as a squad, or a (smallish) Necromunda gang or Bloodbowl Team. The biggest appeal(s) of the 7 Sins factions was that I could probably get them from none to done pretty quickly – and in that process – clear a box from my boardgame shelves as these will obviously have to go on a painted model shelf or at worst a figure case rather than residing in a giant box.

The Others: 7 Sins - Controller of Gluttony

Here’s the controller. Pretty much a woman dressed for the business end of a bondage session, including a complete lack of pants, who got his by the tenticular bloaties. She doesn’t seem to have really noticed much, though.

Usually, a model like this would get its own post pretty much right after I completed it, separate to the Abominations – but since we’re playing catch-up this month for April’s models still – we’ll do the whole lot in one post. Not that this particular figure is in any way amazing or deserves it’s own post based on the sculpt or paintjob, so it’s all good. She ain’t the Avatar in terms of impressive models. that’s for sure!

The Others: 7 Sins - Abominations of Gluttony

Here are the Abominations of ̶N̶u̶r̶g̶l̶e̶ Gluttony (sorry, don’t know how I got confused there!) As you can see, Adrian Smith’s Vagina Dentata obsession rears its head once again on the head-parts of these little mini Great Unclean Ones. We don’t just have a “leech mouth” here, as there are some pretty clearly-shaped labia on show. I mean, if the model design on these was more of a one-off, sure. You could say it’s in my mind, but when you see a pretty consistent leitmotif throughout a range, then smoke usually means smoke…

The rear ends of these guys is much more “traditional” Zombie-Nurgle, as you can see. Not that I’m claiming that Nergal is a wholly-original creation or anything, but GW has codified a bunch of aspects of the whole “plague demon” thing pretty well over the past few decades, and these fit in there pretty well from the designs of a former GW artist.

I just thought I may as well throw in a box shot for this faction here again – what with it being the completed faction from the box. Dunno if I’ll ever play the actual game, but that wasn’t a strong consideration when I purchased it as a set of “should be able to proxy these in the Warhams” models.

To finish, here’s a size-comparison shot, so you can really see how the controller is very slight (maybe she’d fit in well with Eivor?) while even the Abominations are just a little undersized from what I’d assumed (and hoped) that they’d be to fit in with my Plaguebearers. I mean, they’ll still work and I doubt anyone outside of a GW store or officially-sanctioned GW-tournament would complain, just not quite as well as I’d hoped.

    • Well, it was a Kickstarter bundle, but now they’re all done and dusted. Besides, the big guy amongst them is a pretty cool model, featuring no extra-gross reproductive organs!

  1. Nicely done mate, they’re pretty damn cool. That controller is a nice mix of tropes – Slaaneshi and Nurgley… Nurgeshi? Slaanurgly? That might explain all the mouthgina! 😱

    • At some stage, I’ll be up to painting the “Lust” faction. There’s a lot more Nurgley feel to those than you might think, though. To the point where they feel more like more Nurgle Proxies with mammaries than Slaaneshi ones.

    • Yeah, I believe that this particular game was essentially a vehicle to get models made of weird/horror based shit that was in Adrian Smith’s sketchbooks. For whatever reason, the amount of dentata didn’t really occur to me on the KS page, and became much more evident once I had the figures in hand. On the tabletop, ingame I won’t be pointing them out “hey, lookit that face-vag right there”, but as the blog contains all manner of my ramblings, it does get pointed out here! 🙂

  2. Very suitably gross! Grandpappy Nurgle will surely be pleased!

    At first, I thought the “Plaguebearers” were based more on radial symmetry, and it was a little bit of a bummer when I got a better impression of their actual builds. They look good for Plaguebearers, tho, a little shorter, a little bulkier, averages out alright in the end.

    The leader, for me, that sculpt just doesn’t work. It looks too much like two very different things shoved together, rather than a person who’s being warped and mutated. And the clothing (such as it is) is well in the “why even bother” range.
