Showcase: Carnival of Chaos Plague Cart (3D Printed)

    Hello everyone! Cadaver here from Home of Cadaver, giving you an update on what’s happening on my painting table right now!

    Quite a while ago I had a small talk with a friend of mine about how great Mordheim really is. He and his local club had just started a small campaign and I thought that it would be really nice to jump into action and remember the good old days. My all time favorite Witch Hunter warband would be glad to burn some witches once more but I thought that a new one would be much better. In our talk we also discussed about the ridiculus prices Mordheim models and warbands are sold on ebay and the discussion ended on the Plague Cart of the Carnival of Chaos.

    the original model that Games Workshop released

    This model goes for prices of up to 150 Pounds on ebay and I really didn’t want to spend all these money on such a (not so great after all) model. Therefore, the idea really came into my mind, I should make one of my own.

    Not so long ago, I have purchased my own 3D printer and since then I had a ton of fun creating all sorts of things, so I have decided to use it for this project as well.

    I have found a nice file over the internet for a carnival cart and I decided to use this as a base model.

    After quite a few hours of printing the end result is the following.

    The end model have been extensively converted and modeled to create that slimey and rotted look that papa Nurgle always favors. The driver is based on a plastic Skaven model with lots of sculpting to create the robes. Tiny bits and pieces were added to the cart, trying to avoid going overboard. I wanted to keep that one simple yet full of character.

    The paint scheme is mostly based on the original model. I liked the contrast of the boney white areas with the dark brown ones.

    I hope I you like the model as much as I do, I would love to hear your comments and see your votes on CoolMiniOrNot.Thank you, till next time, take care! :)

    Awesome job! Man, wish I had a 3-D printer…

    I really like the colors on here. It looks Nurgley without being pure green, which is great.

    One of these days I’ll get a printer.

    I like your approach to Nurgle. When people just paint green all over something and call it Nurgle, it’s just uninspiring. This looks much better.

    Really cool, one of my favourite war and from Mordheim too! Would love to see the rest of the warband sometime!

    Way cool. The colors look fantastic, a great mix of nasty green/brown and yet realistic enough that it could actually be a gothic cart.
    We are getting a 3D printer for the office and look forward to trying a few things like this on it. It’s a while yet before it could do full minis, but will be great for building up parts like your main cart structure.

    Well played, you ended up saving a lot of money and creating something more original and all.

    Really great piece. I would have never thought it was 3D printed. It looks fantastic and the paintjob is great!
