so im building this nurgle tank and thought it would be a good way to learn a new skill, so i tried using green stuff thinking that learning to sculp with nurgle would be good seeing as how you cant really screw it up(or can you?:grin:).
well you can probably tell its pretty simple work but was a cool challenge for me. as i dont really have sculping skills i used things from my nid bits to add some details, so let me know where i went wrong and things i could've done better
cheers guys.

I like it! Had to zoom in for the first pic, thought that was a body with the legs sticking out lol. All in all though, I think it looks great. Good job man!

Nice work. I've yet to delve into the realm of GS, but, I'm hoping to start later this year. What tools did you use to achieve your work?

Pappa Nurgle would be proud - Can't wait to see it painted up!

The art of GS isn't one I have attempted yet (beyond making some wings seem a bit more natural, as a addition to a Daemon Prince) so I have alot of respect for guys/girls who can make it look good.

Nice work the chimney stacks look very good. One thing I would be careful of however is covering doors over. It is a transport after all.

Its a good start, but you have only explored one facet of nurgle, you have gone with swellings and growths but you need to focus on some decay too, at the moment the rhino underneath is far too pristine so the green stuff feels stuck on rather than something thats grown from the tank if that makes sense? so it needs pock marks,rust,scratches and holes to kinda pull it together.

I think it looks great, but I feel there is a little too much going on. Perhaps less green-stuff and, as BnK said, some more decay would stand out better.

Regardless, it looks absolutely fantastic! Nice work.

funny how you do say that,,i was just thinking how i was going to paint it,,and then i thought id add some bullet holes, and attack it with my dremmel..
as for the paint i thought i might try the salt and hair brush to bring it all together and then washes for the growths...not sure what colour though.

To add on to what Bits and Dave said, if you cut into the hull and work greenstuff into the rents in the armor, then you can start to simulate Nurgle's rot eating away at the hull.

Great work fatmantis! Only thing i don't like is the blue light effect on the headlight (too strong). But the nurgle effect is quite impressive

Looking sexy! I like the pincer on the front, how did you paint the rotting bits? I agree with Nef, the OSL on the headlights is a bit strong, I think it spills onto the chassis a bit too much. My first attempt at OSL was similar, can you see how it 'floods' the bit underneath the light?

yeah i probably did go a tad OTT but hey you get that on the big jobs hehe.
as for the rotten bits its was a base of tarlen flesh then nurgle green and mixed washes from purple to blue etc.
