Default This is my plague! (updated)

Well, here it is!
The entire thing was just simply based upon all the junk ive accumilated over the years: an old land raider that my GW just gave to me cause it was to be thrown, some old tyranids, a bassie bit and some no more nails!

What?

Im serious! this stuff is a god send for ANY nurgle player, hell any player for that matter! ive found loads of uses: from stones on bases to free form plague! Its dead cheap and behaves similarly to green stuff (if you let it settle for a minute) and paints really easily. I wouldn't recomend it for any fine sculting, but it works a treat for gap filling.

The building only took an hour, and the paintig was done in two separate 15 minutes. And with the exception of the metalics, not a single pot of GW (or other special paint) was touched: it was all done from a box of acrylics from WHSmith that cost 4.99. Oh, and some indian ink i pilfered from school.






theres also an entire army coming along aswell!

That thing is disgusting! It looks like you barfed on your land raider, threw some spikes on it, then sealed it with superglue.

[size=7pt](In other words, Papa Nurgle would be proud!)[/size]

All kidding aside, I like it. It seems to really capture the feel of disease and decay. The only thing I don't like is the nearly untouched Imperial Icon on the side (and any others that I may not be able to see...) It should be defaced somehow - maybe large scratches through it, or some of that "no more nails" coming out of the eyes and across the wings like slimy tentacles or creeping vines of pus? (Is that even possible...? Oh wait, its Chaos, anything gross is possible!)

The Tyranid guns replacing the Lascannons on one side is a great touch by the way - and I love that you didn't do it on both sides. The effect is more striking that way. ;D

You know your opponents will never move that thing for you, even if it's all the way on their side of the table and you have to limbo to get over there. Too afraid of either getting sick or at the very least getting goo on their hands.

With any other army that'd be an insult, but with nurgle, it's a compliment!

EDIT: Told you it was good. Now that I've seen it I can't stop sneezing!

Gosh don't you have a 'filthy' imagination! ;D

I like the Organic/Daemonic look to it, makes it more revolting!

Made me want to puke.
Seriously, I don't think I can face a properly painted nurgle army, and that thing is one of the ugliest, vomiting, repulsive and disgusting thing I've ever seen. Good work.
