The Unsinkables WIP #14 : BSB nearly done!

When motivation kicks in, its amazing! I'm having so much fun building these little fella', i almost do not see the time pass, or my kids, or my wife....

Anyway, i could wait until he's 100% finished, but i'm so excited about this model, i had to share!

Based off a plastic Chaos Lord, i added some bits from Blightkings and Maggoth lord, and sculpted his legs armor. To give his upper body some nurgle, i also did some work on his left bracer to make them corroded.

His right hands is holding a scythe, that is gonna be turned into a banner. At first i didnt like the idea, a weapon shouldnt be a banner as well, but it adds to his amazingness... sadly, beside him my Chaos Lord looks like a dwarf....

On his back, a very small alteration, i removed the sign he had on the tips of his sword and replaced it with the sign of nurgle.

I was tempted to remove this bracer, but the hand fits perfectly in it, and i figured it would be a good place to oxide to the max.

One of the faced i hated the most on the Blightkings, seems to fit perfectly with the model. For his legging armor, i trimmed pretty much everything that was on it and sculpted some nurgle armor. Its about the easiest thing to do, so it wasn't too hard to achieve an OK result.

The banner itself. I considered something free hand, but for some reason, i couldnt draw stick figure with a brush, so instead i went with a banner that will in the end look like Plague Drone's wings. That's what i have left to do. Since its a very important part of the model, i'm not taking any chances, and will do only one side of one piece night by night, so no nasty fingerprints.

Next up, i'm not sure. I'll either start a few new Warriors, or i'll start working on the presentation tray. I might keep the tray for tomorrow, while the daughters are painting/drawing...
