|Morteus, Sorcerer of Nurgle|
I wanted this model to look like a former librarian and not simply a marine who became a sorcerer after pledging to chaos. To fit in with my Emerald Fists, I also didn't want an overly stark contrast which would have happened if I'd gone with the typical dark blue. To combat this I base coated with a mix of space wolf grey and adeptus battle grey. He was then painted with space wolf grey, washed in black and dry brushed with space wolf grey and skull white. Standing with the rest of the army he looks like he belongs yet stands out. This model is really cool and the amount of little details is nice. I'm always happy to paint forge world models and this was no exception. From the armour damage and gaping wounds to all of the little nurglings following him around and nestled in his armour, there are a lot of little features to look at. I'm glad I picked this model up as the forge world paint job is pretty brutal on their website and almost turned me away. I was a bit suprised actually as their gallery is usually top notch.
