Nurgle boys finished!





Finishing touches: few highlights and shadings + some washing. Also added gloss varnish over the base's wet parts, as well as to the rims. For some reason I love glossy bases. I also killed an old brush to make the reeds... Overall I think this is crazily messy group - just as I wanted.

The reason for not explaining the exact colors and amount is because I don't know them even myself. Using wet palette gives you the freedom to get goofy with the colors on the palette, but it's incredibly hard to describe how much you use certain ingredients. There's spots of colors all around the palette and mixed up pool of those various shades... This is the way I learnt to use colors - no borders. One big palette with freedom to mix anything with everything.


This defines the joy of painting. There's no right or wrong. Just a WAY to do.
Zen as f*ck.

  1. They look fabulous Turska. One can almost feel the textures (and the smell...)

    1. Thanks Vader! I guess I managed to match the colors with older models - that dreadnought is painted a year ago. And plaguebearers in 2012...

  2. I really like how you approach painting! It seems very natural and it's something I'd like to explore myself in the coming months. Very inspirational stuff altogether. Your Nurgle boys look amazing and you should be very happy with them! Outstanding result.

  3. Now that is how a Nurgle Blunderbuss should look like!

    They are incredible. Very, very nurglesque and pure Blanchitsuu. Brilliant :)

  4. These are amazing. I shall make some pale attempt to do something similar in the future which won't even come close. The tutorial stuff was brilliant - thank you so much for posting so much of your process.

    1. Do not underestimate yourself - I have shaky hands and 0% skills in concentration but still this is fun to do. Trying things out and learning new techniques should be just for fun! Go for it!

    1. Thanks David! The rich pallette comes from tamiya clear paints. They have so much tone...

  6. Wonderful! I'm particularly drawn to the simplicity of the skull banner too, I love the way that's painted and is something I might "borrow" for my Nurgle forces... Thanks!

    1. Thanks Stuart! I also like more simple banners with complicated characters... Sometimes less is more and vice versa.

  7. Has to be the best representation of nurgledom that I've ever seen. Love the cohesive whole, but the way each trooper has its own individuality shining through. Completely amazin'.
