Chaos Champion of Nurgle showcase

At the very moment this miniature was released I just knew that I had to get and paint one. The bulky proportions of its swollen body, combined with the oversized axe, gives the model a very heavy and rigid feel. Even though the pose is quite static it gives an impression perfect for a towering chaos champion, well fed on the corrupting powers of the dark Gods. I painted this miniature in about 2,5 hours. Once the base flesh colour had been achieved with some layering and glazing, I cut corners by simply applying pigment-based rust on his armour parts, which were finally edge highlighted to give a sharpened look (most notably on the blade of his axe). From there on it was only a matter of picking out the final details.
Although I don’t play any chaos based armies, this model will make a fine addition to my collection.
