As usual the name of a project hit me around the corner and mutilated me until I accepted it as a friend. STAR IRON DESCENDANTS started as a technical tryout and ended up to be a project I just needed to finish. No great feelings here, but a background is wide and open due the manliest name ever. Even Manowar would be jealous. Power!!!!!

The next thing that I actually enjoyed was this nurgle marine. For an apparent reason I have 6 FW torsos in my shelf and I decided to give 'em a go. I tried space marine hands and legs, but overall feel was too much bonkers. The next thing was to try weapon options, and ork gun seemed to work perfect. And as the weapon itself is quite large, I took terminator legs to make the mini look somewhat normal. And I like the result.

Here's also the next guy waiting to be finished. It seems the group will have quite a lot of variation in their sizes - the guy below has plague bearer legs...

The paint scheme goes well with DV- chosen.



  1. Wow Turska!
    That nurgly marine is epic. The pose is pitch perfect - it manages to be grounded and animated at the same time.

    If you wan´t to go all out Manowar may I suggest the name "Brothers of True Metal" ?

    1. Thanks Jeff! I also like his pose quite much. Bliss to paint!
      Wait, there's more manly names to come! My style is to have a reasonable name and mix up the order to make it sound Manowar. "Soul Carcass". Metal!

  2. Hey, wow, somebody still updates this blog! Well done man, the rest of us are really bad at this.

    1. That's my intention he he he he he he he he he... hhhh.

      Brushes United truly needs some violent facelifting with more posts and eye candy. Let's see if this works out during the decade.

    1. Thanks Schwager! Nurgle really ain't my favorite chaos entity - I do not like chaos too much at all to be honest. But making the scheme a bit different to match your modeller's or painter's eye is the key to make "boring" projects reasonable. Yep!

  4. Love those colours pal!
    I've been out for so long I know , work and other things keep off :/
