Butcher's Holy Wars GT prep...

Working away on my stuff for the upcoming Holy Wars GT in Feb. Decided I wanted to roll out a little End Times. My Army will feature the Maggoth Lord Morbidex Twice Born...


All primered up...


I wanted to make this model really stand out, so I went with a "flying" version using plague drone bits. This will also tie in well with the rest of my Nurgle figures. I also wanted the model to be versatile using magnets. I built the Magic User and Morbidex bodies so they can easily be swapped out as well as used an inset 50mm base so the model could stand-in for several things.  Maggoth Lord (2 versions), Chaos Lord on Mount, and Demon Prince are all viable IMHO.

Magic User body and inset base...

I'm really happy with the basing also
There is lot of obvious and subtle conversion work on the this model. I worked on it incrementally during some commissions.




I used a heavy Brass rod to suspend the model and covered it in guts.


Also Building 2 units of Chaos Warriors using Avatars of War bodies, scratch built weapons, and GW helmets (and shields). I plan to plane down the shields and freehand the shields on the unit that carries them. I hate trying to paint raised shield detailing for the most part, prefer to hand paint designs and symbols. I also tried out using height to bulk out the unit's visual profile. I'll do the same on the second unit...

Shield Test design on lower right.
Second warrior unit will have Halberds...



Still to build, two Exalted Champs, two Shaman, and two Gore Beast Chariots... gotta get hot.

MTF...

Those conversions are awesome! Top notch work on your nurgle stuff as always. Very inspiring!
