Introducing the Beasts of Nurgle, extraordinary slug-like creatures that possess colossal bodies laden with slimy muscles and blubber. Despite their repulsive appearance, these monstrosities exude a friendly and exuberant demeanor. Devoid of malice or spite, their minds are oblivious to such emotions. Instead of seeking to annihilate their foes, they engage them in playful encounters as they eagerly wriggle into battle. Constantly yearning for attention, Beasts of Nurgle gleefully pursue new companions for their mischievous escapades.
Prepare to assemble your very own Beast of Nurgle with this versatile multi-part plastic kit. Eschewing conventional weaponry, this creature overwhelms its adversaries with an assortment of claws, tentacles, and a slobbering tongue. The kit offers three belly options, each attaching to the single body assembly: one displaying a toothed maw, another adorned with deep cuts, and a third showcasing a large, grotesque wound that unveils a variety of internal organs. Two sets of hands are provided, one featuring webbed fingers while the other boasts menacing claws. Each set includes one hand reaching out, while the other steadies the Beast. Additionally, two sets of feet are included to complete the ensemble.
Furthermore, the kit offers an array of faces, each more manic than the last. Choose from three distinct options: one featuring a single eye, another adorned with an iconic Nurgle symbol in place of an eye, and a third with a pair of eyes practically bursting out of the Beast’s skull. To add further character to your creation, two crests of tentacles and two tongues are also included, ensuring a truly unique and engaging model.

How to paint the Beast of Nurgle set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Model
Start by applying a basecoat of green paint, such as Warpstone Glow or Caliban Green, to the entire body of the Beast. Use a medium-sized brush to ensure even coverage. This will serve as the foundation for the subsequent layers.
- Step 2: Wash for Depth
Apply a wash of Agrax Earthshade to the entire model, including the green basecoat. This will add depth and shadows to the miniature. Use a small brush to carefully apply the wash, making sure it settles into the crevices and recessed areas.
- Step 3: Highlight the Body
Using a lighter green color like Moot Green or Skarsnik Green, apply drybrushing to the raised areas of the Beast’s body. Load a large drybrush with paint, remove excess on a tissue, and lightly brush over the raised surfaces. This technique will create texture and bring out the details.
- Step 4: Apply Nurgling Rot
To add special effects and a touch of Nurgle’s rot, use a small brush to apply Nurgling Rot paint to specific areas. Focus on areas where you want to depict decay, slime, or oozing substances. This paint will add a sickly and infectious appearance to the model.
- Step 5: Detailing and Highlights
With a fine brush, paint the details such as the eyes, claws, tentacles, and tongue using contrasting colors like Baneblade Brown, Pallid Wych Flesh, or Screaming Skull. Add highlights to these elements to make them stand out.
- Step 6: Optional Weathering
For an extra touch of realism and weathering, you can lightly drybrush Ryza Rust or Typhus Corrosion on certain areas, such as the claws or metallic parts, to simulate rust or decay.
- Step 7: Varnish for Protection
Once the paint is dry, apply a varnish to protect your work. Choose a matte or gloss varnish depending on your desired finish. Use a brush or spray varnish specifically designed for miniatures.
