NURGLE SELF CONVERTED DREADNOUGHT

Post by demarcosg » Tue Mar 31, 2009 2:27 am

Blurb - Plague Brother Mortemis, once a champion of the emporer encased within the blessed dreadnought's armour of faith. At the time of the great infection, plague brother mortemis was under massive fire, his armour peeling away as missile after missile hit the armoured sarcophagus. Just as the protective casing was about to give way, father nurgle called to him, whispering promises of eternal life and eternal suffering. Mortemis gave in, misguidedly believing that his continued service was the emperors will. As the fluid sustaining his dying body began to leak into the open air, father nurgle seeped into his life fluid, corrupting and spreading contagion. His armour burst open as the power of chaos sprung and was given new life. His skin began to rot and unholy secretions appeared all over his torn and worn body, pus bubbles and corrosion began covering the once majestic machine. As the fluids leaked, brother mortemis was granted new life in disease and contagion. The rot which had spread and replaced his feeble skin granted him protection against bullets and ordnance. Once more would he serve his god, but it was no longer the false emperor. It was the all benevolent savior from whom deliverance from death is granted, the giver of eternal life through suffering. Grandfather Nurgle.

Special Rule - My Skin is Not my Own
Grandfather Nurgle blesses and protects. Counts as Front Armour value 12.

Commentary - People. This is my greatest achievement yet, and i felt compelled to give it my all in entering this competition. This is the miniature that i have put my heart and soul into, every pus bubble, every covered surface, was lavished with care, concern, countless washes, hours of blendin, and now.. it has come to fruition. I modelled this miniature because i believe in a unique death guard. i believe in conversions and though forgeworld models are nice, i refuse to conform to GWs cast molds. I proudly present this model for your gazing. I enclose the full complement of 10 pictures because i just want to show it off. Itmay not be the best this competition has seen. But it is something that i must do because i am simply so proud of myself.

Kindly excuse my ego trip. Comments are welcome.

@zeruel13 - sincerely thanks for your comment. i am really hoping that my model gets to be in the top 10 or something. it'll be cool. =) i have never entered any painting competition before ahaha.

Thanks for the comments everyone! I hope A Luna sees this. I am eager to see how my model compares to his awesome fw dread.

It looks great, very similar to A Luna's one, they are both revolting. It's one of the best conversions although I have seen something like this.

Your conversion work is freaking awesome. Had you entered it in the previous conversion How-to contests I think you would have had a good chance of taking my prizes away from me. :)

The painting is pretty good too. :)

After picking up my jaw off the ground i really saw how much work you put into this. It is simply amazing!! I love the puss bubbles, although there are quite a few of them...
