Upcoming project: Nurgle Lord of Gore

Yikes! Has it really been that long since I’ve posted?

Sorry about that, I’ve been really busy! I’ve been doing scale models recently, I was on a holiday, plus sick this week, but I’m getting back into the swing of things!

Inspired by the Hammerfest/Goonpocalypse last weekend at Warhammer World in Nottingham, England, I’ve decided to try making my own version of the Khorne Lord of Skulls:

No, it’s not like I don’t have plenty of other projects to do! In preparing for the Apocalypse game I built up several models I’ve had laying about for a long time, plus rediscovered models that I’ve been wanting to paint! what am I doing…

I’ve been experimenting with casting stuff, so I’m hoping to make much of this as repeatable as I can, meaning I’ll make a master and cast it using one- or two-piece silicone molds. So the insect legs, the weapon, the head and hopefully the body as well, although that’s a big chunk of something! Even if I just use the molds to make a couple extra pieces for myself they’ll be quite handy.

And yes I’m planning to use this at some point as a counts-as (or proxy) Khorne Lord of Skulls from Warhammer 40K Apocalypse/Escalation, and hopefully look cooler (at least in my head) than the Khorne version…because it’ll be the Nurgle version!

So here’s how they started off, with zenithal highlighting as I’ve been doing lately:
