One day, maybe at the end of this year or even early next year, I want to make a Nurgle Legion.
They’re vile and grotesque and just so down right ugly how could I not want to do something with them?
Having never done anything Nurgle Based before I plan on experimenting a bit beforehand with a few things. Painting techniques, greenstuff and melting plastic.
Today I built and painted some plague bearers because I wanted to see how I went with skin tones, pustules and open sores.
Suggested that I go for purple-blue tones as opposed to the stereotypical green. I decided to do a bit of both and started with a pale green and then built up layers by dry brushing darker greens, purples, light brown and a little blue. Then I followed up with scab red for a bruised look. The pustules were difficult but when I washed with Crimson and then dry brushed with blood they turned out ok. Not amazing but ok. I’m quite happy with my first attempts but looking at the photos I can definitely see I need to improve. A stand out for me is the Fly headed dude. I’ve seen him done orange, red and pale grey eyes so I went for blue and I think it looks cool.
I hope you share your thoughts and most of all any advice is always appreciated.
