Nurgle "tutorial"

Lot's of folks have been asking me to make tutorials for working with white primer. Here's a small picture compilation of the past hour or so. Here you can easily see the steps I usually progress with my mini's.

 White primer. 50% of the work done already...

Some orange and brown ink splashed over the armor. As you can see, I'm not too much into details at the point. 

More color in - some pink and black.

A sepia ink wash over the armor to make the details visible.

White and bleached bone sponged roughly over the armor to bring some damage and highlight.

Tamiya clear yellow over the armor to make the colors pop. Added some shadings to the red and black!


Metals in. I used leadbelcher diluted with brown ink.

Shadings. I used al the leftovers I had on my palette at the moment... Black/brown inks for metals. Green/brown for bases. Purple/green for skin.

Highlights. Metals were highlighted with silver, skin got a a white splash. Banner got a jolly little skull on it's surface. Bases were drybrushed with white.

Some layering with bleached bone. Touchups there and there...

Soon to be done. Gave red and brown glazes all over the miniature. Added verdigris.

Phew. Only lenses and some minor details missing.

Hell flute & Sonic warhorn

After a while I made a stop at hobby world.

Last months have been more or less hectic with other real-life stuff - but of course at Christmas I got a furious stomach ache and was not able to get involved with the usual season's celebrations. Stomach ulcer gave me inspiration to chop up some plastic and make some Nurgle guardians to be accompanied with my 'Thug'. I still have 2 FW nurgle torsos to play around with...

So, here I represent you Brother Ulcersån (piper), Admiral Syphillaeys (banner bearer), and Brother Tinnituetus (OMFG BLUNDERBUSS)

This last picture is funny. Here you can see the stage before white primer - There's agrellan earth, liquid GS, static grass, bits and bobs, general junk and  other misc stuff that will be covered in pure white. What a mess at the moment. Mr. Blunderbuss is my top favorite fella of the bunch due his massive blunderbuss. I imagined him to be an "engineer" of sorts. He has a "warhorn" (his own intelligent invention) and ultra heavy foot to anchor in place and burst out a hail of bolt shards, organic mass and junk...  (Of course he is a total idiot with his inventions of massive destructive power - maybe it's the fungi growing inside his helmet - but his brotherhood is also too dim-witted to care)

This project gives me a giggle. Cheers everyone!
