CLXX. Great Unclean One Sculpted

Wilhelminiatures blog is holding a Great Unclean One competition. It allows any version of the Greater Daemon of Nurgle model, custom sculpts, and even artwork. You can find the rules here: GUO COMP. Still a couple weeks left until the deadline, so if you have a potential entry you may still make it.

I saw this challenge as an opportunity to do some sculpting, and opted to make my own GUO from scratch. Now, I don't need a full-sized one for gaming (especially not the size they are now, with the latest plastic iteration), so I rather made a downscaled one. It will take up less space. If I ever want to use the model, it can be cast as some kind of lesser daemon. It's roughly Blightking-sized, and sits on a 40mm round MDF base.





The sculpting is not perfect, but I like what I've made here. Waiting for putty to cure so I can move on to the next bit is still so difficult! I wanna do everything at once, but I can't. Training patience.





I've seen some of the entries already, and they're excellent. I'm sure the comp will be a lovely collection of different GUOs. Wish me luck. :)

  2. What a great model! He's like a diseased little gnome, or a toad. A gnoad.

  3. Not stopping to ask HIM for directions.

    I think he's rather charming. Good luck in the comp!

  4. Really well done, especially love the antlers. If I ever were to build a GUO I'd steal that idea (but alas I find nurgle very unappealing)

  6. Terrific! I far prefer it to the official ones; it's both menacing and poignant.

  8. Love thebutterfly "eyes" on the antlers. A very nice Boschean touch.

  9. Simply awesome! His face reminds me of the Slug Baron from Berserk manga, which is very fitting for a GUO. You also managed to make him look kinda playful, which is fitting too :) Good luck on the competition!
