Within the decaying depths of the Great Unclean Ones, vile pustules fester and burst, giving birth to malevolent entities known as Nurglings. These tiny daemons, nourished by the filth of their progenitors, emerge as personifications of boils and pustules. Their razor-sharp teeth leave festering wounds upon their victims, setting the stage for a slow and agonizing demise steeped in disease.
This kit offers an abundance of Nurglings, allowing you to construct three towering hordes of these repugnant creatures. Each swarm is comprised of front, back, and middle ranks, featuring wriggling horned beasts covered in sores, cuts, lumps, and oozing orifices. With an assortment of characterful poses, albeit sickening, the kit provides limitless possibilities. While you can create an astonishing 27 combinations of Nurgling towers, you’ll also have an abundance of individual Nurglings to enhance the bases of your entire army. Prepare to immerse your forces in the foul presence of these twisted daemons and witness the spreading corruption they bring.

How to paint the Nurglings set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Nurglings
Apply a basecoat of a pale green color, such as Warpstone Glow, to the entire Nurgling model using a medium-sized brush. This will provide a starting point for the overall color scheme.
- Step 2: Highlight the Sores and Wounds
Use a smaller brush to carefully apply a lighter green shade, like Moot Green, to the raised areas of the sores and wounds on the Nurglings bodies. This will create depth and highlight the festering nature of their ailments.
- Step 3: Paint the Horns and Teeth
Using a small brush, paint the Nurglings horns and teeth with a creamy off-white shade, such as Ushabti Bone. Apply thin layers to build up the color and ensure a smooth finish.
- Step 4: Add Details and Accents
Use a fine brush to add additional details and accents to the Nurglings. Paint their eyes with a bright color like Yriel Yellow or Fire Dragon Bright to make them stand out. You can also add spots of Blood for the Blood God to simulate fresh blood oozing from their wounds.
- Step 5: Apply Wash for Depth
Dilute a brown wash, such as Agrax Earthshade, with water and carefully apply it to the entire model using a medium-sized brush. This will add depth to the recesses and enhance the overall grimy appearance of the Nurglings.
- Step 6: Varnish for Protection
Once the paint is dry, apply a layer of matte varnish to protect the paint job and give the Nurglings a finished look.
