Here's the latest of Papa Nurgles minions in color. Turned out browner than planned, I was aiming for a dirty off-white, but I'm still quite happy with the armour.
Here he is next to the gunslinger for a sense of scale (he's mounted on a round 30mm base).
It's nice to be back painting after the concussion - even if I had to paint it slowly with a lot of breaks.
Looks fantastic Jeff! I like the brown a lot and the turquoise blue (? only on phone so hard to see the exact tone) is a great spot colour.ReplyDelete
I am glad to see you can paint again; he is quite a fantastic return! I like the brown, off-white look. He is clearly a plague marine, but the scheme is unique. I really like the blue accents coupled with the sparing use of red. The little heraldry shield looks wonderful, the pointy skull with three glowing eyes and a serpentine tongue is pretty rad!ReplyDelete
Wow! Looks very nice, I like the colors!ReplyDelete
The shoulder-shield is epic!!
Incredible looking, man! It actually looks like a legit 40k model kit with your wonderful paint job. I love your use of blues on your nurgle minis and the red spikes give him an old school vibe as well. /thumbs upReplyDelete
Cheers guys! Glad you seem to dig the paintjob!ReplyDelete
Wow mate. What a return. Simply brilliant like all of your other stuff.ReplyDelete
The only thing that niggles for me is the painted Nurgle buboe on the bolt gun casing. I think the damaged pock mark is enough without the painted effect too.
It's not your standard Nurgle theme but you still know instantly what it is. Brilliant.
Glad you like it Muppet!Delete
The little symbol on the bolter was a spur of the moment thing, but I did feel the bolter needed a dash of the red/orange spot colour for balance.
You're the artist mate.Delete
What bit have you used for the back pack? I thought it was a Killa Kan engine but it's not big enough.
No, its some worky gubbins from the flash gitz kit. There´s loads of great little biz like that in there. http://www.bitsandkits.co.uk/images/FLASHGITZ%20(81).JPGDelete
Oooh - shiny - very cool. Cheers for the tip.Delete
This is just superb! The conversion is ace, and the paintjob is even better.ReplyDelete
Thanks Ana! I have to admit I'm quite pleased with how this one came out.Delete
Very nice indeed. I particularly like the tilt shield and the blue tone accent color.ReplyDelete
Is his left arm flesh though? It does not quite look like the other arm...
Yeah it´s flesh. Didn´t chop off the left arm completely as I really liked the shoulderplate and was afraid to damage it. Normally I dislike bare arms on marines but it kinda worked on this one.Delete
Great model. I was a little in doubt about the scale because of the slightly larger base you are using. But since I have got a box of those Nurgle plastics myself I do know that he is huge. Awsome work. Keep 'em coming. btw, that black scroll in the belt is a nice touch. Very intriguing.ReplyDelete
Yeah they´re big - but not too big. They really are the perfect size for a truescale plaguemarines I´d say. Fits perfect on a round 30 mm base - 40 mm would be a bit roomy.
Really looking forward to see what you make of them!
Another fantastic job, he looks great, I love the backpack. I really must get a box of those flash gits for the gubbins. I looks like you use zenithal highlighting , is that the case?ReplyDelete
Fantastic work all around. Love the conversion, especially the big old chunky 2nd ed Boltgun it really fits the scale of the piece. The colours and weathering are wonderful. And I really like what you've done with the base on this guy.ReplyDelete
