Diseased Sons: Nurgle Chaos Space Marines

Welcome to the homepage for the Diseased Sons, a Warhammer 40,000 Nurgle Chaos Space Marine Chapter. Playing games with miniature soldiers is a hobby I was introduced to in highschool by teammates on my rugby team. I've kept on collecting and painting model soldiers when I've had the time, energy, and money. I've also contributed to various online communities including building a miniature painting news aggregator which is currently badly in need of recoding, alas I haven't had time to update the code in a while. I've had this army for a long, long time. I've dragged it across the continent and back. I don't play often, but when I do, people usually enjoy gaming with me. This army is very old and now quite larege. It is slowly being updated for 10th Edition.

For the record this army was started during 2nd Edition of Warhammer 40,000, during the days of the black codex and some may still remember praying every day for a Chaos Codex. I famously played Orks during the Rogue Trader era, something folks like Dave Handy may yet remember. Currently I am in Calgary, where there was once a Grand Tournament. We are no longer playing a narrative campaign at the Sentry Box in Calgary but may again in the future. It is by far the closest gaming store to my condo in the Beltline.

If you want to look at pictures of models and miniatures devoted to the greatest Chaos god ever to be ripped off from Babylonian mythology or just read about what the hell is Nurgle? Then you weary traveller, may finally be home. This is one of the oldest Warhammer 40,000 fansites on the Internet and it has been maintained by one humble servant through thick and thin for over two decades. Take that Chaos Lord Beard, Bill hasn't even heard of you.

If you just want painting advice I maintain one of the most extensive collections of links online. I try to upload photos of completed miniatures to Flickr, there should be an embedded gallery of models I've painted to the right. The amount of Nurgleness varies, however I have painted over 100 Nurgle Renegades and over 60 Nurgle daemons. New and old painted miniatures, often in WIP form, now appear on Instagram irregularly.

Even More Nurgle Goodness

A picture of my entire army along with a full force composition circa 2003 was taken, I've since painted many more models. I don't know how many points I have painted, my army is far from optimal. I've become more of a painter and schemer than a competative gamer. At some point I attempted a video tour of my painted miniature collection. I'll have to make a better one someday, but it can be seen below. In 2005, I put up a gallery of some of my plague marine miniatures it has interesting recollections and tips. Also of interest to old and new painters is this before and after progress page that shows improvements I have made in my minature painting technique over the years.
