Vive la Franc... Nurgle

Post by minamoto » Mon Oct 16, 2017 2:32 pm

Hey,

maybe some of you know this French blog: http://leskouzes.blogspot.de/. They have some really talented painters and converters, with one guy having one of the most spectaculare nurgle/Death Guard armies araound. You probably know his conversion of a lord of skulls - the only conversion that made that model look ever reasonable.

On their blog is a little talk through of him about the new Death Guard miniatures, which he contributed to.

Plus he is coming to Strassbourg on novemeber 11th, so that is about 15km I try to visit him on that saturday. Fingers crossed I speak little to none French XD luckily Alsace is still stamped a bit German so some of them are able to speak native tongue - do not them expect to speak prper englsih :nono:

XD


Sadly I have to buy these guys now... since he designed them... get 'em signed like a little nerd boy :eeew:

Yes, that's the wonderful Maxime Pastourel who works for Games Workshop.

Some of his models are in this post: https://gunsandwaffles.net/forum/viewto ... t=10#p1091
Notes on his design lecture are here: https://gunsandwaffles.net/forum/viewto ... t=20#p1097
His notes on the Plague Brethren are here: http://nurgle.stelio.net/book_PlagueBrethren.php
There's a showcase of his army here: https://www.warhammer-community.com/201 ... ge-post-4/

See also the October 2017 White Dwarf for more designer's notes from Maxime.

Sooo the day has come, it rained, it did not stopped and we went to Strasbourg.
Funnily November 11th is a holiday in France - celebrating the end of WW1, so many shops had closed and it was rather quiet in France's seventh largest city - coincidence?!?

Anyways, like excepted talking no french was rather difficult, although Maxime was rather polite shaking everybodies hand in the tiniest of them all GW-Stores and could communicate with me nicely in english.

He showed some of his concept sketches and signed stuff for the people right aways.

For me it was a rather short stop as the shop was so cramped with people, it was not possible also for me to follow any of the dialogues in french. So I tried to follow along the best i could, but with Elisabeth waiting in the back I decide to buzz off, after getting my card signed.

Just as a side note: he signed a card of the "Plague Brethern" Box - he designed the models - with the John Blanche illustration. That particular illustration was an inspirational source for that Plague Marine -> see image below.

A nice thing that the designers come visit the GW stores, even on holidays, but a bit of a pitty that the store manager did not arange anything more than a seat for Maxime, on the other hand with such little space it's rather difficult to do anything bigger.

Morbäck is Maxime's internet nick -> see his blog: http://leskouzes.blogspot.de/

That Plague Marine on the left, do you see any similarities ;)

Different models he brought to show off, in the front right the new Dark Imperium Minis, in ivory are his famous Plague Bones Marines and the Avatar Conversion is part of his Dark Eldar army (if I remember correctly). Loved the fact that also his models had some imperfections :luv: makes us blokes look not that bad painters :smug:

For a moment there I thought it was the Nijmegen store... they look kind of similar don't they. XD
Anyway, tres bien for getting to have a chat with the guy. His models look pretty spiffy. :thumbsup:
