Death Guard Terminator #2

Ages and ages ago, I did a bit of a kit bash of Death Guard terminator, affectionately known as Malarius, Thrice Blessed by Nurgle.

It seems that I also spent some time putting together more terminators using the Forge World upgrade kit to make some Death Guard terminators. And obviously, me being me, I put them aside for ages.

Well, this past week, I actually managed to paint one. Bit by bit.  It was a bit of a strange experience, as I was returning to my Death Guard scheme, and I hadn't painted that particular scheme for a good few months. I'm reasonably happy with the outcome, and I'm pleased I've not tried to take any short-cuts or owt.

As you can see from the pictures, I've given this fine young gentleman a massive gnarly claw.  Not entirely sure where it came from, asides from it being a gift from my good friend Fulgrim's bits box. It looks possibly as if it might be from some sort of incarnation of the Keeper of Secrets or some other large Slaaneshi model. Regardless of whence it came, it certainly seems to have worked out well, and doesn't seem out of place on the model.

So here are the pictures...

Life's not hard, you're just soft.

Those truly blessed by chaos always bestride channels of
toxic slurry.

Hopefully the rust has come through well on the bolter. I get the 
feeling that from time to time, I may have overdone the rust 
effects on some of the Death Guard models I've painted.

The amount of texture on these Forge World parts
is unbelievable. If I was better at painting, I'd try
and do it more justice!

I'm toying with the idea of trying to make the wings of the fly iridescent. I'd
hopefully achieve that using the Vallejo metal medium.

Ever wondered what it would be like to have a massive purple eye for a belt
buckle? Me neither.

Here he is, with his old mucker, Malarius.


  1. I think your painting skills have only improved tenfold since you painted old Malarius mate. This termie looks pretty effin cool.

    1. That's really kind. A real boost to the confidence - thanks man.

  2. As usual, lookin' good! The claw hand works perfectly on him.

  3. That claw looks distinctly Chaos Spawny to me....

    Great grime here, man, and the purple works well as a subtle spot colour.
