Fantastic Nurgle Conversion for the Lord of Skulls

It is clear that the Chaos Space Marines Lord of Skulls kit by Games Workshop, which has been released this week, is a divisive one. A lot of people hate it. A rare few love it.

Me, I can absolutely see where most of the criticism is coming from, though I’ve always felt that there is no such thing as “too goofy” or “too silly” in 40K. Quite the opposite, 40K is always at its weakest (in my opinion) when it tries (in vain) to be more sober than it’s inherently silly premise.

A few top painters, however, have taken a liking to the kit, including French painter and sculptor Morbäck. Take a look at his nurgly vision of the Lord of Skulls.
