This time around we have the Star Player “Guffle Pussmaw”.
I ended up painting him alongside the Chaos team, as he can play for Chaos Chosen as well as Nurgle teams. He is a conversion from a few parts, and features a tongue made of green stuff.
A very odd one indeed. I took his most identifiable characteristic ‘mouth in torso’ and ran with that. He’s also a Catcher, if memory serves…so the outstretched pose and head kinda made him look like a guy who was getting ready for the ball to come down.
The tongue proved a little trickier than I thought. Originally it was not twisted to the side, but sticking out more in front. Well, imagine the word “penis”, and you can guess why I tried my best to change it before totally drying.
Unfortunately, I also forgot that green stuff really likes to obey the laws of gravity and just started to sag. Had I remembered, I would have tried adding some wire in there beforehand. Oh the joys of figuring out green stuff.
The head was a bit challenging. I never did find the perfect one. I wanted something a bit more thuggish and chubby. This was about the closest I could get.
Colors wise, I went with red and green. But chose a more sickly green to tie-in to the Nurgle team. I also added the ‘slug things’ to his base in a Nurgle symbol pattern.
Lastly, I managed to base and varnish Morg N Thorg finally.
Originally painted up for Ann’s Challenge, but I was waiting forever on a shipment of plastic bases. I’m not crazy about the grass terrain stuff I used. Don’t think I’ll be using that ever again. To spice up his base, I added Ye Olde Painted Line and a spare Mummy head. Undead are one of the few teams that Morg won’t play for, because he has some deep seated hatred for them. So, a decapitated Mummy head seemed pretty appropriate!
And that wraps up my work to date on the Chaos team. I would like to tackle the Star Player “Lord Borak” at some point. Either a conversion or a good third party mini (yea sorry, not crazy about the expensive ForgeWorld model). But other teams are calling, so it might be a good long while.
Up next would hopefully be my entry for Ann’s next challenge, but I’m not sure if I will make it in time. I did have a mishap with an Exacto knife that cut back on my painting time, but I’ve mostly learned to work around that and I couldn’t say that was the main reason for my missing a deadline. A lot of it just has to do with work in COVID19 times (plus childcare) being super busy and taxing. As with everything, there are pluses and minuses. So I just have to take it day by day.
Hope you’re all doing well with your own projects, and I have some serious blog reading to catch up on at some point!
