Greetings fellow wargamers! What do you do when life gives you lemons? Make lemonade. So what do you do with GW gives you a plague drone? Easy, you make a fly prince of Nurgle!For the most part, this was a no nonsense conversion, simple and direct. We swapped the standard wings with the fly wings of Nurgle, and the lower body with the abdomen from the Plague Drone kit.
Although at first we considered using the legs from the drone kit, but we wanted the figure to have a distinct look from the drone kit. We opted for Tyranid legs because they were bulkier than the standar daemon prince legs, which I thought would help offset the bulky distended abdomen.
To conceal the previous slot for the flying stand, we used a ‘stinger’ taken from one of the legs. A little bad of glue and we were right as rain.
Be sure to check back with us at our website in the next few weeks to see it fully painted! We plan to go full on nurgle style with this bad boy, but also to keep our palette limited so as to not distract from the conversion.
For shoulder pads, we wanted something different, so we used these defiler bits.
We offer a variety of painting and assembly services. Be sure to check out our gallery for other custom transfigurations!
And until then, PUT YOUR MINIS WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS! Caleb, WMGWe want those pics!
