Daemon Prince of Nurgle with Black Mace

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a Daemon Prince of Nurgle with Black Mace. This guy also has a converted jump pack which counts as wings. I’ve fallen a little bit out of love with Chaos Space Marine since the 6th edition codex came out and recently decided it was because the Nurgle list I was using didn’t feel Chaos enough. I’m hoping the addition of this Daemon Prince will help remedy this problem slightly.


This model has quite a simple conversion job. The mace used parts from the Warriors of Chaos Dragon Ogres boxed set. I carefully kept the original chains from this model and attached them to the mace. The jump pack is made from a couple of exhausts I had spare from a Forgeworld tank (cannot remember which one) as well as a spare cannon from a vengeance weapon battery. I used green stuff to represent flesh that has grown around the jump pack to make it part of the Daemon. A chaos marauder shield and a couple of demon faces from the Chaos Vehicle accessory sprue finished the jump pack off.


I’m very happy with the flesh in particular on this model. It was painted with Caliban Flesh with a thin wash of Agrax Earthshade and highlighted up by adding White Scar to the Caliban flesh for successive highlights. I then applied a thin glaze of Carroburg Crimson followed by another glaze, this time of Druchii Violet. Extra glazes of Druchii Violet were used on the chin and belly area. I also used the Citadel Technical paint Nurgle’s rot in several areas. The red blistered areas were given several layers of Blood for the Blood god.

The armour was basecoated with a 50/50 mix of Ogryn Camo and Karak Stone. Like the flesh this was also given a thin wash of Agrax Earthshade. Screaming Skull was added to the basecoat for highlights. I also wanted to use as many of the new technical paints as I could on this model. As well as the Nurgle’s Rot and Blood for the Blood God, I used Typhus Corrosion, Ryza Rust and Nihilakh Oxide. The metal areas on his shoulder pad and jump pack were given a thin wash of Typhus Corrosion before random areas were given a drybrush of Ryza Rust. The Nihilakh Oxide was applied to the brass demon faces on the jump pack.
