The Fat and the Furious

After Nordics tzeentchean interlude we're going back to the warm, moist bosom of Papa Nurgle. This time with the second painted blightking for the planned five man unit. 





Here he is next to some of the older models. The colours doesn't match exactly - I used a tamiya spray on this guy - but it's close enough. Some minor variations in hue makes the units more interesting.

  1. Great colors, as always. I think he fits right in with the other guys :)

    1. Cheers! He's a bit more khaki than the other ones who have a more saturated yellowish tone. But he does fit in - variety is the spice of life after all...

  2. That's a fantastic shade of yellow-/brownish armour :)

    1. Cheers. Basically it's just a sepia wash over a midel sprayed with black brown and last bone/khaki. It gives that warm earthy yellow tone.

  4. I love your take on Nurgle. It steers clear of the cliched palette of icky greens and yet manages to look incredibly Nurgley.

    1. Thanks Monkey!

      Earthy colours used to be standard for Nurgly back in the day, but somewhere along the line green became the norm. I think I prefer this though.

  6. I think he fits in just fine. Dour enough that he matches the rest of the schemes, but different enough to make them look like a bunch of individuals with a common goal.

    1. Yep - that´s what I thought. The third one is almost finished and he´s got a slightly different hue as well. It really fits Nurgle to have some variation.
