Nurgle Death Guard Daemon Prince Kitbash

With plans to bring the Death Guard to Balitmore in just over a week, I am thinking of adding a second Prince with wings, my last Prince was a simple conversion, but this time I decided to try to make one from some bits and a few new parts.

I picked up the new plastic trolls, and used a torso and arms as the basis for this kitbash.

As my troops are a mix of expensive (based on the Forge World torsos) and cheap ( finished with recycled bits from the junk box) after using the new and expensive troll torso and arms I decided to pull the rest from the bits box.

I also decided to use only GW stuff on this as I want it to be "legal" for everything.

The new troll legs are very short so I decided to use a set of old sentinel legs, and pushed the bio mech thing a bit further with a jump pack made from speeder parts, like the other Prince this got an Ogre head also, terminator shoulderpad and a banner loincloth and some old metal wings, all recycled.


I will start painting and have him ready soon.

    He looks Tough! Also, he looks a lot more Nurgley than the new GW plastic kit.

  2. yeah, I looked at the new Daemon kit as a starting point, and decided it was too Khorny.

    I decided the Troll kit had more grossness for the money (3 models) and some extras for the bits box.

  10. Thanks everyone, I have added a pic of it with some paint, more photos in a bit.

    Derina- I started on it but I kept breaking the staff, so I am now replacing it with a bit of brass rod, you will see him soon enough, but I must get my army ready for Games Day, and he didn't make the list...yet.
