I finally ended my struggle with the Mary Poppins Nurgling and managed to finish the four Nurglings for my starting warband.
My biggest problem with Ploppins was the umbrella, especially at this size. After a lot of test with paper, cardboard and green stuff I finally settled on the folded paper method which worked out fine in the end. With a fitting hat, bow tie and a shrunken head handbag Nurgle’s own version of Mary Poppins came to life. 🙂
For the remaining three Nurglings I chose a clown theme, which is what Nurglings do best in my opinion – I imagine that anything which includes Nurglings ends up being a huge clown fiesta. 😀
At first a handstand and balancing objects seemed a little to athletic for a Nurglings, but I suppose the belly acts as a fitting counterweight. Topped off with a clown nose the easy conversions began.
Next up I dug up this little Nurgling and again the base models are just about to fit without any conversion at all. This one got a clown nose as well and is ready to work in the chamber of horrors or some character dance.
Nurgling clown #3 gives balloons to all children visiting the carnival. They even float and make a funny buzzing noise. Needless to say that popping one and looking for the buzz’ source is a really bad idea though… 😉
