Looking good! The green is a good shade, but I would recommend something a little more pale. Try adding a little more rotting flesh to the highlights, to make the skin look more sickly. You can also add some veins by watering down some blue and red paint, and drawing them on. Be subtle with it, as it is easy to go overboard. Try adding a small amount of purple to the model, as it will contrast to the green. Brilliant work on the wings and arms, a very good choice for Nurgle. Try adding a dot of white to the upper part of the eye, and some gloss varnish too. This will make it look more realistic.

Other than that, keep practicing! You are off to a very good start.

Insecticising a daemon prince! Now that's a plain awesome idea. Maybe you could have intensified the overall look by choosing some tyranid legs instead of the standard ones but it's nonetheless a great miniature.

Well.. there goes my idea of Nurgle prince with the Chaos spawn flyhead and fly wings of the Plague drones, heh. Oh well, might still try it.

Looks great though :)

You should do it! :) It makes for a great project and between the other elements of the model, the way it's positioned on the base and it's final paint job it could turn out looking quite different. I'd love to see you're version of it.

Oh, I probably will... there's no reason to not have a Nurgle Daemon prince for either my Daemons or my Chaos space marines. Right now I have a Khorne Daemon prince planned first, which I'll probably make out of a Valkia the Bloody model.

But that Nurgle prince will rear it's ugly head at some point, heh. 

Might even be worth picking up a box of Chaos Spawn... there's so many awesome bits in that box which make up for some really awesome conversion options.

Thanks man! A lot of work went into this bad boy. Let me know what you think of the Slaaneshi one, he was a big job too and most people say it's the best of the four.

Yeah, I try to stick with GW parts if I can. Sometimes however I just have to get a piece from Reaper, like my Magic Circle or the Flying Carpet I used on another model.

Same here. I use a tiny bit of Reaper here and there as well. They don't make Eldar jetbike riders with hair flapping wildly in the wind.

I feel brown give a better sense of texture than black on something like that.

Terrific conversion! Was it pretty easily done, or did it require a fair bit of cutting and/or putty?

Oh, and also a nice paintjob. Not showy, or complex, but effective, thematic and striking. Excellent tabletop work.

Thanks very much. It wasn't very hard especially compared to the Slaanesh Daemon Prince, just some careful trimming of parts and the use of 'Green Stuff' (putty) around the joins.

If you are feeling risky, maybe you could paint the veins in the wings.

Thank you very much. :) I'm so done with this model, It turned out good but I'm over working on it. It took me quite a while to paint and now I'm moving on. I've got forty Plaguebearers on the way and I can't wait to smash'em out.

Thanks dude. As soon as I saw the Plague Drone models I new that I had to do this conversion. I had to rip the head off of a Chaos Warriors: Nurgle Ogre that I had previously made but it was worth it.
