Grandfather Nurgle by xLeShiYx Grandfather Nurgle by xLeShiYx
"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! ^^
