From the Games Workshop site:
For ten thousand years Mortarion, Lord of the Death Guard, has crushed his enemies upon the field of battle. Surrounded by chittering Daemon mites, droning flies and noxious plague vapours, Mortarion swoops into battle on vast, creaking wings. the thudding beat of these foul pinions fills the enemy with crawling dread, even as they waft the reek of death across their lines. To even stand in the presence of the Death Lord is lethal, opponents choking and collapsing as they succumb to the myriad plagues that churn the air around him.
And to be honest this does this fantastic model justice! It’s one of those rites of passage models, full of detail and character with lots of little details and lots of different techniques required to get him ‘Just Right’. He is painted to our Level 3 Standard as befitting a Daemon Prince and has been a a pleasure to work on! This is just a a quick WIP as he is actually finished and awaiting his time in the photo booth!
