This is the Nurgle Palanquin I've been working on. The idea is Nurgle's favored champions are ocassionally blessed with a great palanquin. They're born on the backs of great plague beasts or mounds of swarming nurglings.
All in all, I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along. The slime beast on the bottom is really a ball of foil I covered in green stuff. I've seen the idea in a couple of places and it's turning out to be a great way to make a base shape. Cheap, and you don't care if you mess it up!
The actual palanquin is just square plasticard made to look like hewn wooden planks. I added some nurgley mounds on top, some little clumps of stuff on the bottom hanging down, etc. The real problem I'm having is trying to differentiate between the wood and the leathery skin. The idea is several planks were laid down in a solid base, then a section of hide, presumably from a great kill, was laid across it, and then the four framing boards were put down in a square to make the border.
My real problem is differentiating the two in color. Any suggestions for leathery hide or wood?
Other than that I'm planning on one big eye on the front, with mouth similar to the beast in the pictures and some tentacle things dragging behind it leaking/spewing/dumping filth behind it. Nurgle's kind of gross like that :)
I really hate the post editor here for trying to layout pictures...
