Warhammer 40K Nurgle Cultists: Part 2



The weak-willed and the desperate are the first to be seduced by the corrupting influences of Chaos. Nurgle Chaos Cultists are foul and sinister heretics, who have pledged their souls to Old Grandfather Nurgle, the God of disease, decay, death and destruction. Like other Chaos Cultists, Nurgle Cultists form the bulk of the Chaos horde, serving as expendable rank-and-file troops.

I completed five more Nurgle Chaos Cultists using components from a variety of kits.  The main model kit I used is the Frostgrave Cultists set; the mortar and the mortar team’s arms are from Wargames Factory’s Shock Troops Heavy Weapons set (this set is currently out of production).  As well, the weapons for the remaining cultists are either from the Cadian Shock Troops set or Wargames Atlantic’s Raumjager Infantry set.  Plus, Mantic Games’ orclings were used as proxies for the nurglings on the bases of the figures.

Warhammer 40K: Iron Warrior Chaos Cultists



Iron Warrior Chaos Cultists are vile and heretical humans, who have sworn loyalty to the Iron Warriors, a Traitorous Chaos Space Marine Legion. Like other weak-willed human servants of the Dark Gods, Iron Warrior Cultists are seen as little more than insects by their Iron Warrior Masters. In combat, Iron Warrior Cultists are used as expendable shock troops, often sacrificed in the first wave of an assault.

I built and painted six Iron Warrior Chaos Cultists using components from a variety of kits.  5 of the 6 cultists were built from the Frostgrave Cultists set; the weapons/arms for these miniatures came from Wargames Atlantic’s Raumjager Infantry and GW’s metal Adeptus Arbites sets.  The sixth cultist is a Bretonnian Men-at-Arms, with the weapons and gear coming from the Cadian Shock Troops set.

I did some ‘kit bashing’ and conversion work to create five Nurgle Chaos Cultists.  The primary model kit I used is the Frostgrave Cultists set; I used this kit for the bodies and three of the five heads.  For the weapons and gear, I used components from Wargames Atlantic’s Raumjager Infantry and GW’s Cadian Shock Troops sets.  One of the heads came from GW’s Flagellant set and I used Mantic Games Orc ‘orclings’ for proxies for the nurglings on the bases of two of the figures.  Plus, I added a metal Adeptus Arbites’ boltgun to one of the cultists.  The head and enlarged arm on the heavily mutated cultist are from a Reaper Bones miniature (77159 Ghast).
