Hello Again Everyone!

Following on from my last post, we again today progress through my models from the Dark Imperium starter set.

Having worked out my colour scheme, more by luck than design I moved onto painting the Lord of Contagion. And as before he is starting to grow on me, but the posing could be a tad better. I image the artwork was the leading factor in this, in such a way that the models themselves could be presented as per the box artwork for Dark Imperium.

Trying to build onwards from the Noxious Blightbringer, I decided that with such excessive distension of certain parts of the Death Guard range, specifically the gut on the Lord of Contagion, I wanted the armour to look rotten, but the flesh to counter balance it with a fresh bloody look.

This invariably lead into thinking about the weapons that the Death Guard characters are holding. The Manreaper the Lord of Contagion wields is a horrific weapon when you think about it (try not to think too deep about whoever it was at GW that designed it... I am sure they are completely cogent and not in any way a secret maniac 😜). So getting it all bloody... It's going to make on helluva mess to the Lords armour,so I've tried to draw the blood in arcs across his armour to mimic the blood spray.

Let me know what you think in the comments, I'd love to hear your thoughts.



  1. Looking good there. I personally feel the blood is a bit over the top but some prefer it more excessive.

  2. I will accept that there is quite a bit, and with using the camera on my phone I'm getting a bit too much bright colour showing through, in person the blood looks a shade darker. Plus I'd rather not clean up the mess that invariably will happen when the Lord hits someone with the monstrosity that is the man reaper. It's pretty much designed to make as much of a mess as possible!!!

  3. I actually like the excessive blood on these! :)

    1. Cheers Greg! Not too sure how much blood will end up on the rest of my burgeoning Nurgle army, but hopefully should have some more stuff up soon 👍
