Deathguard Lord

Just as I was finishing the second coat of paint on the Time Lift Security, I got distracted by the Games Workshop Nurgle Chaos Lord I bought a couple of weeks ago for conversion into a Deathguard Lord.

Here are some work in progress shots.

The figure (plastic) is very cleanly moulded. The main modification I made was to cut and file off the neck and then drill out the neck stump to take a standard Spacemarine head. For this figure, the Nurgle head from the Chaos Marine accesory sprue was an obvious choice.

I added a pistol and holster from the Chaos Marine sprue plus a hanging skull from the Terminator Lord to the right hip.

The backpack is from the Possessed sprue, so far the only modification is to cut one of the hoses and rotate it as if it has fallen out. I also drilled out the other connection point. I am going to have a look at the Forgeworld Nurgle Sorceror Lord's back pack to see what else I need to add.

Now I could add the Nurgle Icon to the back pack but that might overwhelm the figure, I will think about that.
