Foul magicks

Well this one sure took it's time! 

I've been working with the Nurgle sorceror in shorts bursts for more than a week. Somehow I had trouble finding the  zen-state that usually allows me to sit engrossed with a mini for an entire evening - this was more of a "an hour here, an hour there" affair. Perhaps it's due to all the tiny details - there always seemed to pop up new little trinket I'd forgotten to paint...
Calling this one done (only thing missing are the oregano leaves on the base) - time to move along to the chaos warriors.

  1. Very nice! I like the way you painted the robes. What colours did you use?

    1. Cheers mate!

      Hard to say. A lot of zandri dust and sepia washes were involved, on top of my usual black/brown/bone undercoat.

  2. Another great model! The warband is growing at an incredible pace, and look stunning; grandfather Nurgle would be proud. I really like the fiery blisters on his arm; the ravages of an immune system battling the corrupting influence of the Warp.

    1. Yeah - there some serious acne going on there. Perhaps he's just a troubled teenager.

  3. Amazing work as usual, Johan. There's a little of the Dark Emissary about him I think. I love spotting where you've taken your parts from and where the boxset set purchased has been used by you before. Always a fun game for me.

    1. Thanks Jordan!
      You're right - there really is a resemblance to the Emissary - not intentional though. Guess that guy always had something nurgly about him...

  4. Great new edition to this little brotherhood of bubonic warriors :P
    How exactly did you go about doing your base? I want to say it's a mixture of cork tile pieces and grit, but it looks like there's also some other kind of material in there as well.

    1. There's indeed cork ,as you correctly guessed, as a base. I then built up the "moss" using greenstuff and covered everything in GW textured paint. The lighter patches of orange grass are a form of modellers spongy flock. 'The idea was to create a base with an old school feel - they often had milliput moss hanging off them.
