I believe there's a rule in the Nurgle team that if you kill an opposing player there's a chance they come back as a Rotter. I don't know if that still exists or not but just in case I had a suitable Poxwalker and spare helmet that I could make a less-armoured reserve player.
Not that I ever play or need one, but it was a quick conversion and been sitting around for a while so I finished it off.
Thankfully he fits in with the rest of the team too, not much difference at all.
The Kurnoth Hunters come with a variety of additional tree sprites, most of which I didn't use, but three come with little bits of tree stump that I though I could do something with, but settled on just these two.
Naturally I painted the tree stump as Silver Birch and positioned these BB balls on top - so they could be use as balls for the team.
Now these balls are in fact original 2nd Edition balls, I've a few floating around that I thought fitted the purpose perfectly.
I painted the sprites themselves in the same way I did them for my Y'lthari's Guardian sprites.
Starting with Iyanden Yellow contrast paint, then some sepia shading and VGC Sun Yellow highlights.
Eyes were dotted black, white highlight and a spot of gloss varnish - little Pikachu's
Alternatively, I think either of them could be proxied as Akhorne the Squirrel - they look cool on my flock test base. A lot of fun and some extra bits to add for my Armies On Parade board.
And this gets the second Bloody Great Big Bloody Minor Stamp of Bloody Approval or should it be two of them?
