After first primary colors and few ink washes. Base still unfinished.
Brass on the gauntlet and knuckledusters ink washed with Citadel Thraka green.
Back view of the Nurgle infested boils, pus and tentacles. Arm band still missing colors and highlights all round.

Initial layer of Green stuff: Red Skull signature officer leather jacket. Knife and drill work to make the left hand gauntlet corrupted the Nurgle way. Chipping away at the legs to give room for sculpted boots.
Tentacles of Nurgle now control the animate body of Red Skull - added knuckleduster to the right hand. These hands are made for casualty score not ball handling.
Nurgle's Rot has taken it's toll - boils and puss ooze out of the leather jackets shoulders. Hail Hydra armband on the left bicep.

Starting to build Nurgle team from scratch - the initial inspiration came from Easter Kinder surprise chocolate egg. The figure that came from the egg was football playing Beagle Boy - the scale was just perfect for strength 4 Nurgle Warrior.

Build a new custom Treeman miniature for Wood Elf team. Lip base with magnet to show extra skills like Guard.
Start of the build was cutting of right arm from this plastic D&D figure. Most of the Big Guy miniatures have the disadvantage of being somewhat top heavy and tend to fall down a lot unintentionally during the gameplay. With this light weight plastic core even quite tall Treeman stays upright.
Some wire for the hands skeleton structure, found Ogre Kingdoms loose head in the bit box and Secret Weapon resin base with with something that might transform itself to a tree stump.
Greenstuff rope to give better grip for Milliput arms and filled some holes with the same stuff. Added hair around the Ogre head and some extra beard to hide the wire attachment.
Terracotta Milliput arms in place and few ink washes with dark brown. The lip base is magnetized for marking extra skills and giving better balance for the miniature.
The same lip base can used for the Take Root alternative miniature to show when the Treeman is stationary.
