I just love the old school "Realm of Chaos" feel of this mini, perfected by the wonders of new plastic technology. Hats of to GW for this splendid kit.
I think I'll call him "Mawgut Gloop".
The base might need some extra work - it lacks some details like leaves or similar. Otherwise he's more or less done.
Great work. Top stuff.ReplyDelete
I am full of respect of how fast you can finish these guys and still be able to achieve such stunning work :)ReplyDelete
I love the small details like the checkered pattern, rust and stain patterns on his armour. Good idea with the leaves to make it fit into Oldhammer.
Creating all those textures is really what makes nurgle so much fun.Delete
I'll what I can do about those leaves. I've never tried that technique - if anybody has some tips on good leaf-making I'm all ears.
Birch Pod seeds. They scale well and they're everywhere! Or secret weapon make a nice leaf litter mix.Delete
Nurgle with yellow scheme works as solid as bread and butter ;) Top stuff! And yes, seems you sold me the blight knight box. Gotta get one or 5.ReplyDelete
And oi! Forgot to share my thoughts of the leaves. I've used birch seeds cut in pieces: http://codfishparings.blogspot.fi/2012/10/halloween-countdown-pt2.htmlDelete
Some seeds are fine as is, but usually they're so massive you need to crumble them a bit. Looks okay!
Thanks Turska! If you dig a nurgly mini then I consider it a success.Delete
I was thinking about birch leaves - I think that´s what the Spiky Rats use. It sure looks great on that necromancer!
Also I can´t shake the feeling oregano might have other uses than seasoning...
Also tobacco grounds work quite well! But with oregano you get the pizza smell. Candy for eye and nose eh?Delete
I´ll probably end up covering the whole damn thing in pout pourri...Delete
Those worms on the base really complete the composition. Awesome work...ReplyDelete
Lovely work, your color choices are spot on.ReplyDelete
Cheers buddy! I think the verdigris on the shield turned out an overly vibrant blue. Might have to fix that. Other than that I have to agree - the colours work really well.Delete
I see what you are saying, but I feel the bluer hue works well with the grimy yellow/orange. Perhaps desaturate it a little, but i'd try to keep its "blueness", if that makes sense.Delete
Well yeah, I just want it to sync more with the hue of his topknot. A more muted seagreen.Delete
PERFECT! He screams "Realm of Chaos". I must get back to converting my own blokes now. Did you use washes exclusively?ReplyDelete
Glad you dig, mate!Delete
And no, I didn't only use washes, but mainly.
Mawgut Augustus Gloop.ReplyDelete
This is a special piece. Love the choice of yellow for the armour parts.
Will you do more fantasy efforts in the future?
Well... I think mr.Gloop needs a retuine. Don't you?Delete
Have you considered the old "Realm of Chaos" stuff?Delete
Definitely a retinue. And a pet pig.Delete
TRO: yep. Something along those lines. I might even use the old RoC warband tables to get ideas.Delete
Dai: a mutant pig!
You're one of the people who I think Games Workshop should seriously consider giving a commission to, for the number of people who're inspired to buy things based off your work. :)ReplyDelete
I'll ask John!
Don't get me in trouble! ;-)Delete
