I finally finished it! I’ve had this model since it was released, back in 1990-1. It’s been glued together almost as long. One of the feel fell off, and was lost to time, so I had to recast it using Oyomaru (aka Blue Stuff) and Kneadatite (Greenstuff). Luckily, because Nurgle, it being slightly imperfect was fine. Despite the base feeling a little big (especially compared to the 40mm square it came with), I’ve gone for a 60mm round here rather than an oval for consistency with the new models that I’ll be adding later and mixing in.

The Main reasons this one took so long to get painted were the gaping big bloody seam down the middle of the model’s face and body, because metal (finally sorted with putty) – as well as no pressing need to paint it for anything (now rectified with that Nurgle Daemon Army I’ve been working on), and working out a scheme (just based it on the other models in the force). So now the bloody thing is finally done! Hurrah!

Here’s a nice little gathering of the old-school, original Oldhammer Realm of Chaos Nurgle Daemons. Well, except for the damned Nurglings! I guess I will have to paint them sooner rather than later after all!

I did also pick up three more of these a few years ago on eBay. And I have a V2 Beast that I bought just to use as tentacle bits who has since lost a few, so I’ve also got that in need of repairs. I also found a metal V3 beast in blister just the other day. (And I still regret passing on the pair of those I saw second-hand that one time). Once those five are assembled and painted though – all of my metal Nurgle Daemons will finally be done and I can allow myself to start on the newer plastic plastics while continuing to work through the last few resins.

Well, all the metal will be done except for the Nurglings… but they can be done on a more casual basis, surely?

Realm of Chaos – Nurgle’s Children 2019 #18: Plague Toads (again) (Forge World)

Forge World Nurgle Daemon Plague Toads

Today – Miniatures! Here’s the final three of my Plague Toads. This trio bringing me to nine painted ones. This batch being the “yellow” ones, following on from the “brown” ones and the “green” ones. And yeah, I know I need to do a new Nurgle army shot sometime soon.

Individual glamour shots of each of the three, though I skipped the profile and rear shots this time. Perhaps I went a bit conservative on the “glow” from their yellow-green eyes this time as well, but I think they still stand up decently.

You can see what I mean about it it here. It’s there, but it’s subtle. Perhaps too subtle to stand out on the tabletop.

Ah well. I’m just happy to finally have the last* of these done finally!

The nine of them, with their colour coding can be used as three distinct units of three, or they can all be put together to make up a mega-sized unit of nine Plague Toads!

*of course, I didn’t say anything about Pox Riders!
