NURGLE CHAOS LORD
– Herald of the Locust
A rolling stone gathers no moss, but apparently a violent mass of blubbery flesh gathers some other sickly diseases.
Working on the ‘check list’ that I’ve set for myself, I started on a linchpin for the force; A Chaos Lord of Nurgle.
Nurgle is one of my favorite lores/ pantheon/ marks of chaos. It has a unique look, amazing colors and just a great way to properly gunk up things. The idea of a plague host, riddled with diseases swarmed by flies descending on the civilized countries is just all too appealing to me.
I’ve named my Nurgle army “The Locusts”, as they come only to consume, spread plague and famine and move on once they’ve gorged themselves. (more on this later)
So, here’s a step by step (day by day) of the painting. Wahoozy.
Step 1: Base Coats
- Skin: rotting flesh
- Armor/ spines: 1:1 Camo green / Knarloc Green
Bronze: 2:1 Shining Gold/ Tin Bitz

Step 2: WASHES

Step 3: Highlights

highlights w/ skull white.
the armor went the same as the ‘spines’
- 1:1 Camo green / Bubonic Brown (why they call this a brown…)

the spines got a ‘ard coat, for that lustrous shiny look that only comes from a day at the spa…or when your insect appendages burst through your flesh.
- Dwarf Bronze
- 1:1 Dwarf Bronze & Shining Gold
- red ink
- Graveyard Earth
- Skull white
- Apply Salt with Green Wash.
- Repeat when dry to Azurmen Blue wash and more salt.

‘ard coat for that slick intestine feel
