Carnival of Carnage : Violent J, prince of Nurgle

Hey! I'm Violent J. And I'm here... Well, I'm here to kick your ass!
Riddle Box

My big Daemon Prince is advancing near completition. I'm not 100% happy about him, and hearing someone this weekend call him hippo didn't help. The more i paint him, the more i realize that a green stuff job has to be more than just "adequate", otherwise once painted, you see all the faulty details.

Carnival of Carnage : Oh the horror! a pink horrors story

What is better to give you a boost of motivation to paint? Win games. I was slowly loosing motivation, especially since i couldnt manage a win to save my life, so the painting was slowly stopping. Then i tried a new list (not involving Kairos), and i started winning. And all of a sudden, i want to finish this army and add even more to it.

So my Pink horrors got some love, and i started my first test model.

Carnival of Carnage main attraction : Daemon Prince, Soul Grinder, steeds and horrors

oh how i love vacation ; the perfect time for doing stuff you usually don't have time for, like cleaning up your working space. This is exactly what i did for two straight days ; cleaning up my paint spot, storing correctly my armies and terrains, and basically, cleaning up all the crap that was laying everywhere.

But, this post isnt about how i cleaned my workspace, its instead about my new additions to my army being worked on ; the Daemon Prince of Nurgle, the Soul Grinder of Nurgle, the Steeds of Slaanesh, and the Pink Horrors.

Carnival of Carnage ; Soul Grinder's Hall of Illusions, or the ride of your life...


My creative juice is flowing again... i love it.

Almost done with a whole 100g of green stuff, and my daemon prince is still far from finished. but my Soul Grinder is almost done.

I had tons of idea today while listening to old recording of ICP on Howard Stern (i really recommend the one against Sharon Osbourne, funniest shit ever...).

First, i had an idea the whole time about making a rollercoaster out of him, and i think i finally decided on how to make it look like one, while avoiding making something stupidly complicated out of it. At first i though about rollercoaster rails around the models, but it was such a complicated thing to do, i just couldnt.

So instead, he's gonna swing at it ; I'll make him a bat, and he literally swing at the cart for the ride of your life.

You notice the plasticard, i decided to make him like the cart on "Halls of illusions"... the the giant guy running and screaming inside.

The second part was the underbelly of the beast. I didnt quite know what to do with it ; it had a correct shape, but was too rough to be kept as is, and i knew i couldnt sculpt something great under there, so i went with plan B ;

once i was done, i looked at it, then i looked at a soon-to-be-painted model i owned from mad clown miniatures (https://www.facebook.com/MadClownMiniatures), the creepy mouth monster, and damn... didnt mean to copy it, but i guess subconsciously, i did.

For the record, the little thing coming out of his front isnt his... yeah, i figured if i made something where his 4th leg should be, it'd be better... might add some small toes...

Nurgle Carnival now the Carnival of Carnage

Yes, i have to admit, i finally am forced to start adding more than nurgle to my army. Not that i am forced, but some variety is good, right?

For that reason, my nurgle carnival is now my carnival of carnage (and you can bet my Daemon Prince will look like Violent J).
