The XIV Primarch by saint-max The XIV Primarch by saint-max
Mortarion, XIV Primarch, the Death Lord, son of the Emperor of Mankind, Leader of the Death Guard Legion, Chosen son of Father Nurgle. ruler of the Plague Planet.

--------------------------------------------
Thoughts:
I decided to go with a more demonic scythe rather than a mechanical one that i have designed earlier. rather than having a chain-scythe kind of design i thought of a more poisonous blade, something so corrupted for the mortal minds to understand its power. i add some heat smoke coming out of the scythe, then i changed my mind and repainted it as a dark thick green poison gas generating out of the blade it self.

Hope you like the piece. :D
c&c are more than welcome

THIS is the creature that had a grandmaster's name carved into his heart? Matt Ward I swear to Nurgle. Brilliant artwork, very creative and I love his fusion pistol design, brilliant.

 Since Mortarion here looks positively daemonic I believe it's from after his ascention to Daemonhood, yes?

Still before Daemonhood, hmmmmm not sure if I like his design when it comes to daemonhood, I think the making him look as a grim reaper is kinda meh :S

I've always had a unique liking for Nurgle. The way he and his Daemons fight is dangerous since 1) they rarely feel pain and 2)even when they do, they simply laugh in joy. Along with the fact that simply being near Daemons of Nurgle is dangerous enough to make someone sick is amazing in it's own way.
