Grandfather Nurgle by artleshiy Grandfather Nurgle by artleshiy
"Children of the Nurgle, our lovely, our pets ... How Nurgle loves his little children! how Nurgle loves his kids..."

He is known also as Grandfather Nurgle, the Lord of Pestilence and the Lord of Decay. He is the oldest of the four Chaos Gods and is the most directly involved with the plights of mortals, particularly humans who suffer so acutely from a fear of death, perhaps the oldest fear of that species. While Nurgle is the God of death and decay, to be certain, he is also the God of rebirth.
After all, decay is simply one part of the cycle of life, without which no new life could grow...

//=================================================================================================
«Дети Нургла, наши прелестные, наши любимцы… Как Нургл любит своих маленьких детей! Как Нургл любит своих малышей…»

Нургла описывают как щедрого, общительного бога, которого называют Отец или Дедушка Нургл - Властелин Разложения, повелитель чумы и болезни. Нургл так же Властелин Всего, ибо несмотря на то насколько неразрушимым кажется что-либо, нет ничего вечного.
Как человек относится к неизбежности конца жизни? Ложиться ли он на землю и ждет когда смерть придет за ним? Нет! Он летит через жизнь, радуясь и разочаровываясь, мечтая и сожалея. Так что человек поставленный перед неизбежностью все равно смеется и вдохновляется...

I think what I like about this piece is how it manages to be grittily detailed and yet have a playful feel to it. The lighting really helps bring out the cheerful expressions on Nurgle and his Nurglings making them actually appear surprisingly endearing. This image really brings back the comical tones of Warhammer 40,000 that, to me, have been greatly overshadowed in a lot of artwork featured in official Games Workshop publications.

Thank you so much for making this!
=)

Just love it! The best and most realistic depiction of Nurgle.
I especially like the expression in the eyes of Nurgle, you can litteraly see the pride he feels over his children and the joy watching them having fun.
A true grandfather! ^^

Seriously best Nurgle pic I've seen. Really captures that he isn't like the other gods. He is rather cheery and happy. But that cherry and happiness is perverted by nurgle. And this picture really shows that. Nice job!

Rather cheery bloke. I don't know much about Warhammer, but isn't he the one that's married to the Eldar Mother Goddess?

 (Married, has locked-up in a cage and force-feeds her diseases, po-tae-toh, po-tah-toh... In all seriousness though, she is basically his prisoner from what sources I read. But he absolutely adores her despite that. It's like how at least some of his demons think that they're 'Playing' when they violently murder people.)

So he's a bit of a chauvinist too?

 (I Don't actually think so... Now please bear in mind that while I have a working knowledge I'm not an absolute loremaster, but I'm pretty sure it's... the only way can think to show his affection. By force-feeding her diseases and seeing if she can cure them. The Chaos Gods are all evil in their different ways, and Nurgle's evil runs along the same lines as his affection. He blesses his followers by inflicting them with poxes and pestilences, diseases and blights... He favors them by cursing them... Maybe the best way to think of him is as a well-intentioned sadist. He lovingly inflicts horrors upon those he loves to show he cares. And to show the Eldar goddess that he cares very very much, he hurts her very very much... Embodiment of an unhealthy relationship perhaps.)

 I cut down my viewing time of  negative news.  It's so depressing.   I also stopped watching horror films for the same reason.

 (It is indeed depressing. And I actually do fine in horror films. It's mystery and crime thrillers that I have trouble standing now. Mainly because in crime thrillers it typically feels more real and likely to happen than most horror movies do. That said, I also tend to lean towards ghost based horror movies, so... different strokes I suppose.)

Да там даже шансов не было у противников... и все же почему Дедушку Нургла нарисовал?

По статистике он на последнем месте.. на первых местах кхорн.. на втором\третьем тзинч и слаанешь.. и на последнем Нургл.

Почему Нургл :3

Very few artists really *get* Nurgle. But you do in spades. He takes such patriarchal joy in freeing us all from the tedious indignity of living.
