Blessings of the Plaguefather - Daemon Prince & Decimator

Daemon Prince 4

Spent a fair amount of time on the Daemon Prince, most of which is filling in gaps after attached the two hands as well as on the shoulder joints.

As such the pictures below don't seem to show much progress but it's taken a while to get those gaps all smooth etc.


As you can see I have removed the wings so I could clean up the joints on the wing tips


On the right wrist and and armpit I added some pustules/boils. Had the Black Death in mind...



Next it will be adding the wings. That should then be that for the Daemon Prince.


Decimator 10

On the Decimator I took the Dremel and GS to the Torso, Shoulders and Arms.



With some blu-tac he looks like this:


I think I will add more GS to the right hand side of the torso, I won't it to really look like it has really been bulked out but the Nurgle Daemon inside. With the shoulder pad hiding so much I need to have more coming out from under it and behind the head.

I've not decided yet if I will add the Decimator exhausts on top or do something different (couple of ideas as alternatives).



Something I was considering was using the Nurgle head from the spawn kit. Size wise it matches up with the regular Decimator head well, but it's just not clicking with me at the moment.


Still a fair bit to do on this guy, but he's getting there.

  1. That head does seem too small, especially the back of it. It's "neck" is way too small. I'd recommend testfitting a head from either a plague drone, it should fit together better.

    1. Size wise it is fine, it is on a par with the normal head. I just don't like the look of it in place, too jarring compared to the rest of the model.

  2. Great stuff, I reckon a single horned Plaguebearers type head will look best?

    1. Cheers.

      Plaguebearer head would be far too small, it is about half the size of the spawn head in the pic.

  3. Both models look great! What is the base model for the daemon prince, he looks terrifying

      The base model is the very nice and creepy Mourngul from FW... https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-GB/Mourngul

  4. I'd almost keep the decision head, I think that's what makes that model, but maybe add the odd nurgling popping out from under the armour, or in a gap or two.

    1. Yeah I'm going with the Decimator head, but I may add something to it to set it apart from the stock Decimator I used on the first Decimator.

  6. All the greenstuff detail is really bringing these pieces to life. Such fantastic work!
