For Adepticon I’m building a 1000 point Nurgle Warriors army for tge Rodgepodge event. The Gore-grub chariot will be a centerpiece to this force.
Rather than have a Gore-beast pulling a chariot in a conventional manner, I think that a massive resurrected swamp-grub, enslaved in undeath by the foul magicks of Nurgle, toting a Howdah would be very in theme with a highly mutated Nurgle army.
The body of this model is made from a tinfoil armature and layered with super-sculpy and Apoxie-sculpt. The details are primarily done with Greenstuff.
Check out my insect leg tutorial to see how the legs were achieved: Sculpting Insect Legs
The crew for this beast are coming together. More on them later!
I will be posting quasi-weekly (occasionally I am away from the internet, yup) tips on things that I learned over the years about sculpting, modelling, and general hobby tips. Follow me on Twitter, and keep an eye out for #SculptingModelingTip on posts. If you have any questions about these tips, please feel free to message me here, or on Twitter!
With Adepticon right around the corner, I am busting my butt to get my chaos army wrapped up. Here are some new images of the converted chaos warriors, and the Demon Prince.
The Demon Prince is the first fully sculpted miniature I have created. There is a GW head from the zombie kit stuck into the armor of the demon. It represents the soul of demon’s final adversary, who’s defeat which triggered his final accent to demonhood. It was very fun to design, and create, although it took forever to complete. The wings took an especially long time.
These are two different chaos warrior units armed with halberds. The center 4 warriors, including the standard bearer, and the musician are represented by the giant mutant, and the task master behind it (not pictured), whipping it to motivate its rush into combat.
Thanks to John at Plastic Legions for help with the photos!
Here is an interesting link to an article in The New Yorker about Guillermo del Toro. I wanted to share this partially because I am a fan of the director, but mostly because of some of the fantastic bits about creature design. If he wrote a book about this, I would buy it in a second.
