Question for whoever wants to give an answer, here's the WIP but I've got to do a cloak for him but can't figure out what colour I reckon would work. Any suggestions would be great.

I blame all the murky green nurgle minis recently.

Honestly mate Id try for a flesh colored one. pieces of skin stitched together. And fresh. So the outside would be skin colored and the inside could be a little more rough. with details such as bits of flesh and blood.

I like the idea but the FW one it comes with is a bit more free flowing and not sure how easy it'll be to give that effect tho

guess that depends on how good you are at using GS? Id go with 60 40 blue green mix so that its stiffer. Maybe even mix it with milliput. once you have the basic shape that you want you let that cure fully then you add the detail a piece at a time.

Hmm I would go with a very dark turquoise and do lighter highlights myself. You need a little more contrast in that model, and a very dark turquoise might just do the job without taking too much focus.

Something like a dark reaper undercoat, shaded in nuln oil and highlighted with thunderhawk blue or the like.

After checking with Humakt and Tawa as to whether it would be allowed i've decided that instead of workign on an army i am limiting myself to only models from the origional Heroquest box for my AP Challenge. That means that i'll only be using the origional models, plus those found in the expansions.

First up are the skeletons, the origional box comes with 6 but as i have the "Return of the witch king" expansion which includes more undead, i've done all 12 of them.

OK here is my entry for the challenge. Just finished a load of sculpting on some Dark Nurgledar in the early stages of Nurgles rot.




Nice work there @GrimzagGorwazza

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I have quite a few of these figures myself. Nice to see them all painted up.

@GrimzagGorwazza , damn those skellies bring me back. Well done. HQ was the first GW game I played. I think it may still be some in the attic of my mother's house.

It's taken longer to get around to this than I thought, but hoping to have it cranked out in the next few days. An M5 Stuart for my Bolt Action US marines.
