Nurgle Helbrute / Dreadnought 1

Here is the short term project I am doing as a break from the Karrier. Should only be a three or four days I think. Enough to come back to the Karrier refreshed and re-energised.

Basically I am taking a Dark Vengeance Helbrute and turning it to Papa Nurgle.

So tonights work...

On the rear I carved out part of the back before proceeding to fill it back in again (ignore the stray hair that got into the pictures).

As you can just make out I have also removed the exhausts. I'll be doing some new ones.

Now onto the front...

I removed most of the horns keeping one for that Nurgley feel. Lots more to do round there. Also planning a new head to go in there.

Working downwards I removed the old belly detail and added a shed load of GS. I also removed the tentacles and carved out the body before adding more GS.

Lots (and lots) to do yet.

Basically I am making it up as I go along so I can't really give many details. For example I don't know what I'll be doing with the weapons. Or legs. Or the rest of the rear. Or the top. Erm, so yeah.


  1. Your nurgle stuff is always a treat, will this be sacrificed to the ebay gods like the rest of them though?

    1. Well I wouldn't put it past me to just sell it once finished.

  2. Well well well, I know who I'm shamelessly stealing/copying from for my second Hellbrute model.

  3. Im doing something similar, but nowhere as near complex. thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Cheers. You can never have too many Nurgle Dreads and the Helbrute seems perfectly suited as a base for one.
