Hellpit Abomination to Daemon Prince Conversion...

Some of you may have seen these photo's over on Dakka, but since I am completely done with the conversion, thought it was time to post it here.
So, as some of you may know, i am working on several armies these days... one of them being a Death Guard inspired army. When I saw the Skaven Hellpit Abomination model come out


I immediately thought of Nurgle and how that might be a good conversion for a Greater Daemon of Nurgle, so bought the model and decided to give it a go...
first up are some picts of the model in its infantcy.







Really took alot less green stuff to make it work than I thought it would.
Next up are some of the first go at painting it with the addition of wings...






Not too bad, but the more i stared at it, the less i like the look of the legs.. plus, i really don't like CSM Greater Daemons (no wings, no eternal warrior) so decided to try and cut the legs off and make him a bit smaller and closer to the Nurgle Daemon Prince model. I am now happy with it, here are some of the finished picts.








and finally here is a pict of him compared to the Nurgle Daemon Prince.


Thats its for now, hope you all enjoy...
next up is another command squad for my AdMech army made up of melta toting RT Robots!!!!
Cheers,

FYI the new plastic daemon prince now uses a 60mm base so a larger footprint is definitely ok. Great conversion!

wow... not much else to say. You took a nasty looking model and made it even nastier, in a good, nurgle way that is. Incredible conversion.

Awesome came out really well.

Very cool looking, but it kind of looks like roadkill... possibly a rat, or a possum...
