Here Be Daemons
Here is a Nurgle Daemon Prince with wings. Something you will notice as I post my Daemons, is that I made a specific effort to avoid the standard GW color palette. My Nurgle wing is painted with a wet gore tone, with more than one nod to Hellraiser and Silent Hill. The rusty barbed-wire and skinned flesh aesthetic just seemed like a better representation of eternal suffering and undeath. I wish that was the first time I ever typed the previous sentence.
The model itself is an inquisitor gladiator named Krieger "Krash" Thrax, which you can see here. I split two Tau vehicle engines in half, bonded them together, and pinned it to his back as a jump pack, stormboy style. The base has been built up with piled fantasy squarebases, light weight spackel, PVA glue, sand and flock. This is one of the first models I finished for the army, as I started the collection with the Nurgle wing.
I will explain the metal and flesh treatments in a future post; I am exhausted at the moment. I just wanted to put up something Daemonic before I head out to the Warstore Weekend tomorrow night. I hope you enjoy the pic, and if you do, there are about 100 more HD daemon pics where that came from...
Thanks again, Chris!
