Embrace the twisted humor of the Sloppity Bilepiper, a delightfully merry and infectious daemon in the service of Nurgle. While the glum Plaguebearers may not appreciate the jokes and songs infected by the Chortling Murrain, the other daemons of Nurgle find the Bilepipers antics absolutely hilarious. This contagious disease can leave mortals laughing until their sides literally split. Though their role is to amuse the warbands of Nurgle, the Sloppity Bilepiper ultimately meets a grim fate, as they are transformed into a set of pestilent gutpipes for the next victim of the Chortling Murrain to wield.
This multi-part plastic kit enables you to assemble your own Sloppity Bilepiper. This surprisingly nimble and cheerful daemon is posed in a lively manner, with his marotter held high and his gutpipes cradled in his arm. The marotter is a peculiar weapon—a large stick adorned with a Plaguebearer’s head wearing a jester’s cap, and equipped with spiked censers on each of its three flaps. The gutpipes, on the other hand, are a unique creation—a haphazard assortment of valves, pipes, rags, and leather, forming a large and grotesque organ. The Bilepiper himself is adorned with jolly bells on his ankles and wrists, wearing a hood embellished with icons. Notably, his pot belly is split open, revealing his dangling guts in a hilariously grotesque fashion. Accompanying the Bilepiper is a dancing Nurgling, joyously frolicking to the wheezing and groaning sounds emitted from the gutpipes sphincters.

How to paint the Sloppity Bilepiper set
- Step 1: Prime the Miniature
Start by priming the Sloppity Bilepiper with a black or grey spray primer. This will provide a good base for the paint to adhere to and enhance the dark and eerie appearance of the model.
- Step 2: Base Colors
Begin by painting the Bilepiper’s skin with a sickly green color like Warpstone Glow, ensuring full coverage.
Use a bright and vibrant color like Evil Sunz Scarlet for the jester’s cap and the flaps of the marotter.
For the bells on the Bilepiper’s outfit, use a metallic color such as Balthasar Gold or Retributor Armor.
Paint the gutpipes with a mixture of rusted metallic colors like Leadbelcher and Runelord Brass to achieve a weathered and decrepit look.
- Step 3: Washes
Apply a wash of a dark shade like Agrax Earthshade or Nuln Oil over the Bilepiper’s skin to add depth and shadows.
Use a wash of a contrasting color like Druchii Violet or Carroburg Crimson over the jester’s cap and flaps to enhance the details and add richness to the colors.
Apply a wash like Reikland Fleshshade or Seraphim Sepia over the bells to bring out the metallic sheen.
- Step 4: Highlights
Using a lighter shade than the base color, carefully highlight the raised areas of the Bilepiper’s skin to add definition and a sickly glow. For example, you can use a lighter green like Moot Green.
Apply a lighter shade to the edges and folds of the jester’s cap and flaps to create highlights and bring out the intricate details. For instance, you can use a brighter red like Evil Sunz Scarlet or Wild Rider Red.
Use a lighter metallic color like Gehenna’s Gold to highlight the bells and add a shiny appearance.
- Step 5: Finishing Touches
Paint the details such as the Nurgling, the icons on the Bilepiper’s hood, and any other small elements with appropriate colors. For example, you can use Rakarth Flesh for the Nurgling and White Scar for the icons.
Apply a gloss varnish to areas like the gutpipes and bells to add a shiny and wet look, enhancing the overall disgusting and chaotic theme.
