And so my descent into the howling interstices of the Immaterium continues with the latest heretek Warglaive fresh off the assembly line. It's not quite freefall; I just bought the Primaris Apothecary model which is so good I daren't convert it. I might finally pluck up the courage to paint a marine in white armour. A crisp marine would be just the right palate cleanser after this fella.
The beast is an attempt to placate Grandfather Nurgle. I have a feeling it might not be fecund or tumescent enough for the Great Plague Lord who likes his corruption bloated. If machines could have weeping sores however, I hope they would look like this.
I can hear something grinding inside it now as it rotates and the bottom has come loose. It's probably time to get a new, industrial strength turntable that can take the weight of a spitting cat. That could provide a lifetime of fun.
Speaking of animals, I not sure what I was attempting here. Something raptorlike and Dinobot for sure. I think it ended up a bit ratlike however, skittering through the wasteland. Spewing filth from strange, ventral orifices like a 41st millenium muck spreader. I'm not sure you'd want this particular bio-mechanical horror to fertilize your crops. Not unless you were hoping for a very grimdark version of Jack and the Beanstalk outside your window when you woke up the next morning.
I've been dicking around with the model for months now. When I finally realised that I was never actually going to finish it, I just stopped. I painted the rim, washed my brushes and started taking photos. I think it was the right decision really, I was in danger of over-egging the pudding. GW Technical paints are too much fun. Whoever invented Nurgle's Rot deserves a medal in my opinion, but you've got to stop short of pouring the damn stuff all over the model.
