Nagash, supreme bad mudda of the Warhammer Fantasy universe is back! And it looks like he's brough all hell with him. There are few moments as momentous as the return of Nagash and this model is a fitting end level boss character for the Fantasy universe. 

The kit itself is a little tricky to put together. I normally assemble big models like his in parts, paint them and glue everything at the end. Because the cloak and spirally spirit things need plastic putty to smooth the joins everything needs to be glued together at the start of the project. apart from holding your brush at angles you'll find holding the model to paint quite difficult. Do no let these frustrations get the better of you. Take a breath, and look at the model as a whole and know this will be the centerpiece of your collection. 

As for painting I took the 'Eavy Metal scheme and added my own twist to it. For example the armour is blended from dark purple into blue instead of straight transition from black to blue. The intermediary colour adds more interest that simply shading from black to white. I've recorded the process of painting Nagash and I hope to make him my first video tutorial on youtube. 

In the mean time enjoy the Nagash and the ending of the Warhammer world.
