Greetings Terrans, I hope this finds you well. I have December’s ‘warband ‘Realm of Warcry’ additions to share today – painting time has been pretty compressed so far in December, but I did manage to paint up the ‘Mage and 3 Cultists’ roll from my original warband generation. As soon as I rolled that back in September, I knew what mini I wanted for my Mage… Or should I say, Witch:
Officially this is ‘Fecula Flyblown’ from the Wurmspat Underworlds warband, and I don’t see any need to change that name for my warband. She is a fab mini so no conversion work needed, and she was just a really nice paint. I took it easy and muddled my way through in my usual way. A particularly nice touch is the weird Nurgle-Cat thing:
Next up, Fecula needed three cultists to accompany her – enter some Rotmire Creed from the Heart of Ghur set:
These guys make for perfect Nurgle cultists if you ask me – deffo on the turn, but not yet the full-blown Nurgle schtick. Again, great minis so no conversions, and painted to suit.
Of course, if you’re painting 3 Rotmire, you might as well do the whole gang, right? Here are all 10 from the Heart of Ghur boxed set, plus a bonus mook that was given away at the FLGS:
Here they are in groups – mooks, Lieutenanty types, and the Leader & tank:
I really like these guys, though some of the design choices do get on my wick… The leader’s weird froggy hat thing leaves me very cold, and the whole stilts thing for the more important members is just stupid, but I can overlook these gripes for the absolute quality of the mooks & the tanky ‘Bloated One’ (aka, Fat Wolverine).
Painting was very much business as usual, and was very enjoyable for the most part. One small note on the painting – for the first time ever I had to concede defeat when it came to painting the eyes… They are sooo teeny, and are really hard to get to! I gave up trying & just gave them glowy blue eyes because swamp juice or some shit, right?
Anyway, that’s all for this week folks, I’m hoping to get one more post out before Christmas, but in case I don’t, I hope you all have a good one.

Excellent additions to the warband Alex, and great you were able to find models that perfectly suited. Have to agree on the helm and stilts very weird.
Cheers mate, glad you like ‘em – I think they work really nicely 😊
Some beautiful work again mate, this is a very creepy looking range of figures.
Thanks mate, creepy is the word! 👍
Damn, Alex – these are beautiful in a disgusting way. Your paint style on these models has come up perfect. I’m going to have to steal the speckly thing for some of my own Nurgle-ish models!
Cheers dude, turned out ok eh? I’m quite enjoying the whole Nurgly vibe tbh – suits my preferred painting ‘style’ 😊

Pretty cool! The use of those yellows and greens make them look very Blanchesque, with means of course extra points!
Cheers dude – wait, so you’re saying I paint like a 74 year old?? 😂
These are brilliant, but the witch especially so! :-) I reckon her familiar is really one of Hell’s Chihuahas (we have Chihuahuas and they can pull faces like that when they have to)!
Cheers mate, she’s got bags of character for sure, but that familiar definitely steals the show 😊
Excellent work as always Alex. Have a good one. 🙂
Cheers mate, you too 👍
Nice work on them. The cat thing is crazy. My fave is the guy who is completely hooded. Because you know he’s got to be something really awful if he has to keep his face covered so that this lot doesn’t retch! 😂
Cheers mate, I’m with you – all the mooks are really nice minis but the hooded lady is the best… apart from that freeky cat thang of course!!
Corrr, lovely and creepy. Great work Alex
Cheers dude, looking good eh? 😊👍

Super stuff. Your choice of colours is spot on, as usual; I think that the cultists in particular benefit from the limited palette.
Cheers mate, I’m happy that they came out looking suitably bedraggled 😁
