Nurgle Death Guard Biker Test Model

Toughness 6, big move and shoot and an extra CC attack?

OK

I put these guys off as they are not too fluffy for Death Guard, and I do not like the Chaos bikes.

I started with a brand new Marine bike, ( should have used a built and beat up one ) filed away flash lines and drilled barrels and pipes and went to work on it with a Dremel tool, then went over that with brushed on liquid plastic glue.

Forgeworld Death Guard torso and shoulder pads, Kroot bag, guard bedroll, skeleton skull, greenstuff Rot.



and painted

How many should I make?

  1. How much points is one such guy? 40? 50?

  2. Absolutely beautiful contrast between the orangish and green hues. Really lovely stuff.

    oh, and seven is the only number.

  3. I'm working on some pretty involved chaos/ Nurgle bike conversions right now too! They're so expensive points wise, you just gotta do something to the models to make them special (especially when you see how much fun the Ork Bikes are!).

    I'm going with 6 bikers (2 flamers) + a biker sorcerer, it's a very expensive squad (500 points or so).... but fast moving template death.

  4. Any chance of a step-by step painting guide? I love the rust effect you achieved on this guy!

  6. Fantastic job - I'll echo folkert and bsmoove, it more or less needs to be a squad of 7. You'll guarantee favor from Grandfather Nurgle that way. :)

  8. 7 it shall be.

    Magiler- 33pt each plus 50pts for the squad to get the mark of Nurgle, so 281pts for 7 with no upgrades.
