Finishing off my Nurgle daemons: Part 2 - Horticulous Slimux

 Greetings all.

I've been continuing my quest to paint the last of my Nurgle daemons. Of course, even when they're all done I'll have a mountain of mortal Nurgle followers to do, as well as the vast majority of a Death Guard army... one step at a time though!

My mot recent addition to the painted pile is Horticulous Slimux. I've liked this mini since it came out a few years back. It suffers from the modern GW problem of being a little bit too busy, but thankfully not as bad as some minis. It took a bit longer than planned to paint up, but on the whole was quite an enjoyable experience.

I also took a few better pics of the rest of my recent Heralds while I was at it:

Till next time.

Finishing off my Nurgle daemons: Part 1 - Heralds

 Greetings all.

I've been painting Daemons, and Nurgle Daemons specifically, for over 10 years now. I keep adding to the pile though so they never seem to be finished. I decided it was time to change all that and just polish off the last few that I have sitting around unloved. There aren't a huge amount of them to do so it's about time I got over the hump and finished them. The first ones I tackled were this trio of Heralds:

I deliberated for ages because I didn't want to paint them in my "old style", but I was a bit worried about them not fitting with the others. But then I remembered that it's Nurgle so anything goes. As it happens, they stand out a little (fitting because they're characters) but still fit the visual of the horde as a whole, so I'm happy.
