Nurgle Tank tutorial: Get the brushes!

So long, too long… oh so too long.

 

But let us begin!

For those who are new to this page, it may not be updated often but when it is the content is quality.

So along with it all:

If you haven’t read my other painting guides then please go to them to find out what I use for the base coat.

(Sorry I sprayed the tank ages ago and I am not sure what it is now.)

Other than the base coat… here we go.

So the first layer I did a heavy and rough layer of Elysian Green:

To follow this up I did a drybrush layer of Ogryn Camo. This gives a bit more life to the vehicle as well as some light and dark contrast:

As always dry brushing pulls the details out and adds some texture to the creation.

 

the next layers on it were very simple it requires adding all the detail in with… of course my two favourite ways of adding detail. The paint colours I am using for this is the same as I always use Skull crusher Brass and Rakarth Flesh.

I then applied my favourite paint which GW have made. If you haven’t tried there basing paints… Well where have you been all this time. I personally go for Stirland Mud (I believe that is the name).

So I applied to the tracks and around the edges to give another layer of realism.

The last thing I will mention is do not wash the tank but if you feel compelled to.

Only put it in crevices as it will make your tank sparkle otherwise.

That is all

Sorry for the long wait and what I feel is a boring post.

Life has been getting in the way.

Remember you can never stop the rot

HG out!!

Update on the walking rot

Well my army creation has ground to a near standstill only because of the dreaded four letter word… Work.
I have been working for asda as a delivery driver which takes up time as well as being tasked with doing all the sound for a feature length film.

The movie

I can’t lie I’m very grateful for being allowed to work on it, but it is a lot of work yet it is ready fun.

Paint needed 750pts only on the shelf

The army is out and just in need of a lick of paint!

Basing models

Now that my brother has displayed how simple his army is to paint I’ll show both him and you how easy it can be to base models.

What’s basing?? I hear you cry

Well basing is when you apply some sort ground to the base of your model. It use to be this complicated faff involving PVA glue and sand or fake grass, and by the end your models looked worse then if you just left them standing on nothing.
Although this has changed for the better you can now buy base paint’s which look good on your models base’s. I personally use the mud coloured one.
So it’s super simple, don’t believe me? you just simply paint it on.


 

I tend to put a bit on the feet as I believe it adds a bit of authenticity to the mud.

Super easy right.

Why painting Nurgle should Rot in hell

So the title is slightly in the direction towards overdramatic I shall admit, but consider this Nurgle needs to look like they are rotting. 40K Death guard are all green. How do you get that rotting feeling?
I will try to present my attempt at a quick way to get that rotting feeling while attempting to simply explain why Nurgle will triumph

Without further waffle let’s begin.

First off there are some techniques you will need to be able to do, I am not going to make a horrible attempt to explain them as google is your friend for learning, these are:

Spray painting

Drybrushing – Being good at drybrushing will get you far.

Wetbrushing – I don’t know its actual name but its the technique used when painting which isn’t dry brushing so I’m calling it wetbrushing.

So the actual painting part.

—–Step 1 to that rotting feeling—–

Spray paint your models Caliban Green in a well ventilated area*

It’s a bit like Dark Angels Green if you remember that

 

*Sooooo basically go outside for that…… trust

 

—–Step 2 to that rotting feeling—–

Do a heavy drybrush (STOP and listen… no wait if you don’t know what drybrushing or wetbrushing is then go google it) Rakarth Flesh (or white, white works just as well) I just prefer the flesh colour as you know flesh rots.

Painting is like an Ogre….

—–Step 3 to that rotting feeling—–

Again you need to do a heavy drybrush with Elysian Green but not quite as heavy as before.

Then a light drybrush of Ogryn Green so that it just highlights the raised areas

Sorry for the poor quality image

…They both have layers

 

—–Step 4 to that rotting feeling—–

Using a colour of your choice now with the touching parts up I personally used a brass colour to create a slightly rusty effect. And the flesh to touch up the skulls and horns.

Then finally a thick green wash.
