Swamp Terminators by Warpvermine Swamp Terminators by Warpvermine
Initially I had plans to simply make these Plague Terminators appear big, fat and bulky - I Converted the Lord first (the one with the Corpse-Banner) and Seeing how pleasing he ended up, I went and made the rest of the squad! Modeling and painting these guys took me about two weeks, on and off.

The paintjob was tricky seeing as I had modeled them to appear truly filthy, I knew I'd end up with a simple naturalistic scheme in the end - The dark metal/rust complemented to dull, decayed nd bloated armour well, but there was something missing - That's when I added the static grass from the hero basing kits I had. I think that the static grass is the one thing that they needed to truly have that ''swamp'' feel to them, and though it contrasts the armour it doesn't some out as too much of a dominant theme.

I've got plans to make a couple of Plaguemarine squads in this new ''swamp'' scheme, so with any luck you'll be seeing them soon, too.

Nice! Love the top left of the six; so heavy, and those horns are great too. Really evocative.

i like the guy with the chainfist the best

Seriously? I like his stance - I think that's the best thing about him, he looks as if he's really calculating his aim - But the one thing I dislike about him is the bandages on his chest, which I think I could (and should) have done a lot better.

very good done, this almost immobile but massive look... this would look great in an army!

They certainly do! All I did was throw glue and dirt at them really, and the painting was just as easy as everything else - Hence the reason why I'm so bored of Painting Nurgle after 10,000 points of drybrushing!

I'm not sure why I thought of this, but after I painted these I had a funny thought of a scenario where some bloke walking his dog next to a calm swamp, when these big buggers stumble all, all pissed off and such - hence the reason for the name, and such!

God those things look filthy. I LOVE IT.
Your nurgle colors are incredible. And I like the things you did with greenstuff here.
I'm still not sure if I'm doing just nurgle marines or sticking to just the Purge (Small legion that barely gets mentioned)

The Purge... Aren't they the Nurgle dudes with black armour? I think I did a one-off with one of those in one of my squads.

From everything I've seen they are a green/black with either boltgun metal or gold trim. Their symbol is also three flies. I like the look of them. I'll still be painting a lot of things proper nurgle, but the elites will be painted like the Purge. Just got some word bearers done last night :p
Warpvermine Featured By Owner May 18, 2009
Word bearers are awesome, fluff wise especially! I think I remember the purge a bit better now, I don't think I'd include them en masse in my force, the colour scheme's far too ''clean'' for my liking.

I'm going to stop taking that Khorne weapon, ugh. Too many times has it killed me. My nurgle lord will either have a force weapon to play it safe, or if I'm feeling manly he can always have a trusty daemon weapon :p
That's sort of why I like the purge. The elites and higher ups being more clean in appearance, leading the shambling masses of other nurgle marines.
