LXIII: My 1st Nurgling (completed)

"Nurglings are tiny, mischievous daemons, resembling a chubby miniaturized version of a Great Unclean One. They normally appear in large numbers."

7.) I added the horn, filled-out the back side a little more and (not pictured) sculpted a little bone for him to hold

8.) I neglected to take a picture, but there was a step before this where I added a nub of an arm, prior to adding the hand/ bone.

9.) Bulked-up his left shoulder and elbow, also his right haunch.

And now he's pretty much done. There are 4 nurglings to a 40mm base... I may push myself and try and get 3 more done this month.

(sorry for the bad pictures, the lighting here is terrible)

LXII: My 1st Nurgling (continued)

4.) Here you can see I cut out the sides of his mouth to make him more smiley (why so serious?)

5.) Starting to plump-up his cheeks/ chins

6.) You can't see from this angle, but I've given him a little bum, and I've continued plumping him up

I thought this would go faster, but it's actually pretty tricky sculpting at this size!
Legs are coming up next. Arms are going to be a challenge.

LXI: November Nurgling Challenge begins!

My 1st Nurgling!

1.) Here I go. I'm not a green stuff master, so I'm taking it easy my first time out. I'm using scrap GW plastic bitz from my bitz box to form a base.
(bitz used: 1 SM shoulder, 1 bloodletter face--horns removed)

2.) Glue them together

3.) Bulk-up with a little green stuff. This is just to get it to sit-up properly, and to start to get our shape.
(no details yet)

that's it for part 1! Up next: time to add some details and finish him off!
