Personally I think the reds look spot on, it's a great contrast between the mat green olive skin tone and the fresh guts.
Looking forward to seeing more��

Thanks for the feedback guys and I completely agree on this aspect - I must admit that I like the contrast though, although I have dialed it up a bit on the bug guys compared to the rest of the army. He simply has too many big wounds and cuts for it not to be an effect. I can make some brown areas, but to make him gooey I think he is at the right place - With a few adjustments naturally.

Oh no I didn't, and thanks for the idea man - I have put the base idea in the back of my mind for now, and will take them up when I reach that certain god for models again. I promise it is not forgotten

While I'm still waiting for the correct base size for my Great Unclean One (Seriously, they changed that after I bought the model...) I finished the rest of the challenge. So here is the whole batch:



And here are a few individual shots:

Daemon Princes of Nurgle:


Heralds of Nurgle:



Plaguebearers:


Not bad for 2 weeks work, if I do say so myself.

That is some seriously impressive work there my friend, 40 plaguebearers, 2 heralds, 2 demon princes and a GUO! Awesome pace, and the quality is top notch too.
I am seriously considering an airbrush based on these results, I can knock out Boyz pretty quick by hand, but this is a whole new level.

Thanks all! I'm glad you like them, as I must admit I'm liking the feel in them more and more. I foresee more Nurgle in the near future, that's for sure!

Understandable, however the airbrushing was only a small part of the models above. The following techniques was used in the creation of the above models:

- Airbrushing
- Oilwashing
- Drybrushing
- Technical paints
- Sponging
- Highlighting

While I agree that some parts are A LOT faster with an airbrush, people have a tendency to believe that the overall work of a model is lessened by it. The way I see it, I use the same amount of time on a model, as I use the saved time on other areas. That being said, the shading and basecoating is infinitely easier!

Now, while I was having a few days off, I decided to finally paint that Aegis Defence Line that I had lying around from just before 7th was launched. It's been staring at me since, so I thought it was time to get it done.

Before I got started, it looked like this:


After I was done (15 minutes ago) it looks like this:


Nothing fancy, but it's good enough for me on the tabletop. The model, for those interested, can be gotten over at Wargamma, where they have Aegis Defence Line for a few other races than the standard and boring Imperial one.

Now to go and break down my kitchen - Yes, a new one is coming so there's a reason for the madness. I'm gonna hit that shit like I had STR D!

Kitchen 0 - Nord 1. For now my kitchen looks like this:


Good enough for today - Now it's on to more painting. I just got this model in the door:


That's right: A custom Crimson Slaughter lord on bike, complete with Blade of The Relentless and Butchers Horns. I have been waiting for this model for almost a year, so I cannot wait to get started on him! It's about time I got the possibility to put a guy on a bike and join him with some Spawn to be extra annoying - The codex might be bad, but now it's time to loose with style

I can't decide if I should paint him now or wait until next month - But that's just so far away!

(The model was made by @Blissful Brushes who can be found right here on the forum.)

Yeeeesss I remember this guy, it's been a long time since I've seen the preliminary work on him somewhere or another on the forum (was it in this thread?).

Finally a cool pose with the blade of the relentless. I can only imagine how much carving and fine cuts it took to use the sword in that pose. I know you'll do it justice.
