Nurgle: Great Unclean One #2

Finally found the time to not only continue working on this miniature, but also report about it! I have managed to put in around two days worth of painting all with highs and lows. All the wound areas were re-painted in a more fitting rotting flesh colour, the original choice was far too pink for my liking and has been limited to the intestine areas only, it took a lot of time to get a decent coverage of the new rotting flesh colour, but I think it has been worth it. As a colour break, more red glaze has been added to areas of broken skin, giving it a more sore look, this should work well with the clear blood effect at the end of project. Ideally I will get to work on the intestines tomorrow,extra tentacle details and if time permits any horn/bone areas (spine included), I am purposefully leaving the head till last, so that I can give it maximum attention when the time comes. I am estimating two to four days solid painting before completion, of course getting a 'full' painting day is the hard part!

Rumours of a new Daemon reinforcements/codex have been surfacing on various forums and blogs, chief among these are descriptions of some sort of Nurgle battle fly (undoubtedly to fill the flier gap in the codex). With this in mind I am leaving Daemon Princes out of the painting queue until I know more, I hope the fly does turn out to be true, the concept of giant bugs harassing my opponents will be to cool to pass up.

So what do people think of the Daemon so far? I should probably try to pick up the pace a little so I can start the second one...

Thanks for reading,

  1. hey there, unbelievable tutorial ... truly disgusting haha i was just wondering what it was you did to the rotten flesh areas? I just started collecting nurgle and would really appreciate it. thanks and keep up the awesome tutorials!

    1. Hi and thanks for the comment, I am glad you like the miniatures! For the Rotting flesh areas, a wash of Agrax Earthshade was applied to give it a unnatural feel (it is a nice green/brown wash) this was then highlighter with rotting flesh mixed with a bit of white to make it stand out. Hope this helps!
