Edit - infections rise, we had the 1, now 2 more, for a total of 3 COVID cases from my building alone.
So in case I get infected myself and get hauled off to quarantine...here's an update to my Nurgle stuff! It's my ongoing Monsters & Warmachines Armies On Parade project, Patient Zero.
His story: A lone Guardsman, the sole survivor of a detachment devastated by disease, wanders from base to base to warn others of the impending epidemic. Little does he know that HE is the primary carrier, because...like all humans...he can see corruption everywhere except within.
Strangely apropos, considering. DISCLAIMER: I've posted most of these before, but some notable new additions.
+++ OVERALL VIEW +++
+++ PATIENT ZERO and NURGLINGS +++
Patient Zero is the Warlord character of this army and counts-as a Herald of Nurgle, his chainsword is actually all greasy and rusty to reflect a Balesword. I've modeled him with a backpack from one of the Chimera kits, like he's been backpacking around.
And, well, when I say he's the Warlord...actually the little Nurgling wearing the Astra Militarum helmet looking at the map is. Patient Zero sees him as a very helpful giggling cherub, leading him to the next uncorrupted for his "pandemic warning".
I previously modeled him as just a Guardsman dragging a dufflebag, but I think this update reflects him even later in his journey, he hasn't bathed in weeks, his laspistol long ran out of ammo and even his chainsword is just a rusty cudgel now.
The Nurglings I painted in Dr. Mario colours, like those germs that are red, yellow and blue. It was to differentiate from the military greens Patient Zero would wear...plus I thought it'd be funny for Boomers (for Zoomers, Dr. Mario was a Nintendo game from before they invented the Switch, where a plumber threw giant pills at a patient, who gobbled them up, and has to arrange them in his innards to fight the germs).
+++ THE BROTHERS GRIME +++
2 Chaos Armigers with Autocannons converted to resemble Plaguebearers, because they got that hunch and if you take off their shoulderpads they look like they got gangly arms, also their head options gives one Cyclopean camera eye? I love this because it's like someone thinking Nurgle can only infect organic stuff and Nurgle's like "hold my beer". Because, at least, the pilot is still flesh and blood, right?
I've named one Duncan and the other Peachy, after Duncan had that meltdown on Warhammer TV about Chaos Knights. But generally, I refer to them as The Brothers Grime.
+++ NEW WINGED NURGLE DAEMON PRINCES TO COME +++
I've already started, in fact. Will post soon assuming I don't get dragged into real quarantine.
