I have a pre codex Deathguard army but hadn't done anything new for them in years.
I made a Nurgle Ork, was asked by Pandorasbitzbox to paint one of his possessed (plague child), i've seen amazing Nurle work right here on B&C and then watched the Cinematic Trailer for Inquisitor Martyr with all the exciting Nurgle goodness in that. My fall was complete.
For anyone that still hasn't seen the trailer..
The Helbrute had to be made...
There aren't any stills yet but there is this pic too to help...
This guy has a cannon from the plague hulk but I prefer the look of the assault cannon style gun.
I love all the horns on this guy and think he's a great Nurlge Helbrute. Although bizzarely ruggedly handsome. He's supposed to be a hulk not a hunk. Aside from that he's great.
Here's my efforts...
The horns come from the maggoth lord kit. I had that kit lying around for ages intending to do a Morback (Le Blog de Kouzes) Maulerfiend. I could see there would be a lot of spare horns but I couldn't tell which ones would be spare. I quickly put the maulerfiend together and started putting those horns to good use.
The one in the trailer has a rockin' bod'. So i used a spare Daemon Prince torso to replicate this. I have also tried to get him to be taking a step like in the trailer. I'm not overly happy with this so might try again or forget the stepping all together.
I thought I would use the hades autocannon from the Forgefiend but these are a little big. Then i found two Space crusade dreadnought assault cannons! Space Crusade being my first introduction to GW about 25 years ago.
Here he is with the gun in place. I still need to straighten out the ends of the barrel and put some spikes on there. Possibly it's a tad long too. In the meantime I discovered the Gatling Psilencer from the Dreadknight kit could make a great end of the gun. Pandorasbitzbox has a spare he's kindly said he will give me. Although it has 7 barrels and this one 6, is that a psign? I would need to redo the whole gun but lets see.
Here's a size comparison next to a kheres assault cannon that i nearly used.
Got a lot of Nurgle stuff planned now.
and I will get started on all those new Deathguard models at some point too.
