Worship of the Worm. The Great Worm and The Excreted.

The next installment of my AoS28 war band is the Great Worm itself. This beast of a model has been sitting around waiting to be finished for quite some time now and I’m actually relieved it’s finally done.

The painting technique I used on this large model was to create a few washes out of really dirty paint water and while it was sunny outside fling the paint at the model with a big brush. With the hot weather it dried really fast and created a wonderful effect for the skin. I would then apply more washes of dark green and black and then drybrush areas with terminatus stone. Details were picked out with nurgles rot and blood for the blood god. All very satisfying flinging paint around, I felt like I was back in art class when I was ten ๐Ÿ˜‰


As you can see the Worm has a few hangers-on. The biggest one being one of the repulsive Excreted. These disgusting chaps get, you guessed it, excreted from the Great Worm itself and followย The Women in Whiteย in her quest to bring the worship of the great worm to all and have them consumed and reborn for the glory of Nurgle. The following members of the band are the Excreted champion and banner bearer.

And to round things off, an image of the whole gang as it stands at the moment. More Excreted will follow soon.

  1. It’s done at last and it’s well worth the wait! ๐Ÿ˜€ Glad I didn’t see this just before dinner though! Great freehand work on the banner too.


  2. That’s incredible mate! I really love the papery look that you’ve achieved with the skin, it reminds me of ant eggs somehow – a very cool effect. The gang is shaping up nicely (?) too, and wow, what an amazing banner! Fantastic ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Thanks my friend! Yes I’m rather pleased with my freehand attempt and I’ll be doing more. It’s very rewarding.
