Flashback Friday - Nurgle Titan

 Hey everyone!

Welcome to Flashback Friday, where I revisit old armies I have painted from the past.  I have painted thousands of models and who knows how many huge armies on commission, and each one holds a special place in my heart. I enjoy looking back every once in a while at the photos and remembering the joys and struggles, the hard work and the pure enjoyment of making someone's vision a reality. But enough of that emotional stuff, let's get on with it!

This time around I have for you a Nurgle Warhound.  This goes with an existing army you may have seen before, but it was done earlier with some other titans.  It was a lot of fun to do the weathering and coloring effects on such large plates, and can't wait to do another one.

The void shields were resculpted to be large eyeballs, and spines and pipes replace stock parts near the rear of the carapace.  Not a huge conversion but definitely enough to make it unique at a glance along with the paint job.

The guns are magnetized and rotate.  Funny painting just the gun is like painting a tank!

The base is cut from MDF and sculpted over to make a unique scene.  If you have seen later images of this model, you will notice the infantry are not added here.  Extra models were painted along with the army to be placed on the base.

That's it for this week!  Check in next Friday for more trips down memory lane. Always feel free to follow on twitter or facebook if you prefer.  Thanks for reading!
