Work continued on the Nurgle marines right up to the night before my holiday.
The armour had a continuous cycle of highlight, shadow wash applied until things were where they needed to be.
The metallic elements had Boltgun Metal randomly applied to the Scorched Brown basecoat. I then added random Bestial Brown but in quite a sparse fashion. Finally another coat of Scorched Brown was randomly applied followed by a Devlan Mud wash. It looks rather like bronze in the photo, but it's quite a flat colour in reality.
The Nurgle marines had a similar treatment applied. The next step was to paint certain areas as fleshy. The basecoat was Dark Flesh – a couple of thinner coats to get good solid coverage over the Black. I then applied a couple of highlights, adding more white to the base colour each time.
In the mean time, there is something much bigger and nastier waiting in the wings…
The progress continues here…
