So when the book was released, i purchased the book, the magic card (obviously) and 2 Plague Drone of Nurgle, without really knowing if they are good or not. I just figured i'd field them anyway, so why not buy enough to do whatever i want? In the end, my list this weekend will include 6 of them.
So lets see some pictures
No we do not fly, we "hover"
As you can see, they are using the yellow from my Nurgling. A pretty weird choice, but i figured if i painted them with a green tint, it would end up a green plaguebearer on a green fly on a green base... too green for me. So i went with Yellow.
The armor is black, as i figured there was enough color in there already, and it was a good color for the small bits like the tips of their many legs.
Hovering less than 1/16 of an inch above the swamp...
At first, i really wanted to give them transparent wings like my Fly Plaguebearers, but after some quick test, i didnt really like how they looked ; too fragile and too thin.
So instead i "faked" the look, going with a white and the same technique i used on the wings. The effect is pretty nice (imho), and wasn't too hard to reproduce on everyone. And most importantly ; it was much, much faster than any other idea i had.
The other 3. A quick tally put me at roughly 40-50 hours to build and paint them. They were fun to paint, but i sure am happy they are finished.
