Within Nurgle’s legions, the rank and file are embodied by the repulsive Plaguebearers. These loathsome Lesser Daemons are formed from the corrupted essence of mortals who have fallen victim to Nurgle’s Rot. Forever marked by the disease, a Plaguebearer’s visage is barely visible beneath a canvas of oozing sores, tinged with sickly greens and vile browns.

As you assemble each of the ten Plaguebearers of Nurgle, prepare for a stomach-churning experience. Each model offers a unique combination of grotesque details that will leave you both fascinated and disgusted. From festering sores of varying sizes to severed heads clutched in their hands, these creatures proudly display their trophies. You may even spot a mischievous Nurgling peeking through their diseased flesh or playfully tugging at entrails. Exposed tendons, bones, and protruding horns further contribute to their nightmarish appearance. Sporting rows of sharp teeth, most Plaguebearers possess only one eye, although exceptions exist. These daemons firmly grasp their rusted and infectious Plagueswords, ready to spread Nurgle’s contagion.

How to paint the Plaguebearers of Nurgle set

  1. Step 1: Base Coating
    Using a medium-sized brush, apply a base coat of sickly green or vile brown paint, such as Moot Green or Gorthor Brown, to the skin of the Plaguebearers. Ensure even coverage and don’t worry about being too precise at this stage.
  2. Step 2: Sore Details
    With a smaller brush, carefully paint the sores on the Plaguebearers bodies using a contrasting color, like purple or yellow. Use paints such as Genestealer Purple or Flash Gitz Yellow to add depth and highlight the diseased areas.
  3. Step 3: Horns and Bone Details
    Using a fine brush, paint the horns and exposed bone areas with a bone-like color, such as Ushabti Bone. Take your time to achieve clean lines and add a weathered effect by adding subtle washes or drybrushing.
  4. Step 4: Eye and Teeth Details
    With a fine brush, paint the eyes of the Plaguebearers with a bright color, like red or yellow, to make them stand out. Use paints such as Evil Sunz Scarlet or Flash Gitz Yellow for vibrant eyes. Paint the teeth with a bone color, like Zandri Dust.
  5. Step 5: Rust and Decay Effects
    Using a small brush, apply touches of rust and decay effects to the Plaguebearers weapons and armor. Use colors like Skrag Brown or Typhus Corrosion to simulate the corrosive nature of Nurgle’s Rot.
  6. Step 6: Wash
    Apply a wash of Agrax Earthshade or Seraphim Sepia (depending on your desired effect) to the entire model. This will bring out the details and create shadows, enhancing the overall appearance of the Plaguebearers.
  7. Step 7: Basing
    To complete the painting process, focus on the base. Apply texture paint or a mixture of PVA glue and sand to create a textured ground. Once dry, paint the base with a dark color, such as Rhinox Hide or Abaddon Black. Drybrush or apply washes to add depth and realism to the base.
