We return to the foul forces of Nurgle to view my Death Guard Dreadnought from Forge World.  Played with matte (corroded, dirty) and gloss(puss and other nastiness) surfaces on this one. No real conversion on this one, just added a couple of Nurglings to the base.

Straight up nasty.  Looks great.  Especially since this one looks more "infected" than rusted out.   A lot of us sort of cheat with Nurgle machinery by just concentrating on dirty and decrepit rather than Nurgles real focus of rotteness and corruption. I like that you extended the Nurgle-ness to the base.  makes me think that it's corrupting the very ground it stands on. 

 

What shades of green did you use?

Funnily enough I can't think of any of my Nurgle stuff that I went the rusty route with. I've always with the corruption, rot and disease theme for Nurgle.

 

All my Nurgle schemes start with spray basing either flat black, white, bone white, or as in this case a green. The green varies depending on whichever olive drab or medium green I have handy, I'm pretty sure this was a Testors flat medium green from their military line. The specific shade doesn't matter that much to me at this stage since it's going to change so much. It should be noted that my force is a mix of color schemes based off those basecoats held together visually by their shared corruption washes. I conceive of my force as a hodgepodge combination of squads and vehicles brought together by Papa Nurgle's joyous corruptive embrace.

 

Next step is a home brew mix of green, brown, and black wash with a touch of red in it that I refer to as Nurgle slime. I usually do one sloppy overall wash. Then I go in and drybrush and blend a color that compliments the base that I used, in this case it was Cadian Green. I then add the other detail colors and make a highlighting pass over everything.

 

Final step(s) is more Nurgle slime washes until the model fits the look of the rest of the force. Sometimes straight black washes are spot applied and occasionally some strategic gloss medium on specific details after the model is dull coated.

 

Glad you like the Nurglization of his base. Your impression is pretty much exactly what I was going for. I envisioned the dread as having paused on a rise to look for targets and in that brief time his general aura of corruption is already oozing into the landscape.

And thus, you have added a couple more nurglings to my heart  :wub:

I really love the sculpt on this, it's a really great, clean (but, you know, filthy) paint job!

Papa Nurgle has plenty of nurglings for everybody, he's a giver that way. :;):

      When I first started miniatures gaming, my first game was the classic Space Crusade. That game will forever have warm feelings from me.  
         
       
      However, I soon started converting minis from the set, and using their bits in other conversions and I found that I really wanted to play Space Crusade, but didn't have any of the parts that I'd need.  
       
         
       
      So I went to my "bits box"- which is quite extensive these days, with parts catalogued- and found that I could pull a full Space Crusade force out of it.  
       
         
       
      For painting, I've decided to create tributes to forces that I've painted in the past- some for clients, others for myself.  None of them will match those forces too closely, as I'll be creating a new take on them.  
       
         
       
      Here's the first squad I finished:  Salamanders  
       
         
       
       
       
         
       
       
       
         
       
       
       
         
       
       
       
         
       
       
       
         
       
       
       
         
       
       
       
         
       
         
       
      I painted up my first unit as Salamanders as a tribute to the Salamanders forces I painted over the years (they'll be 'counts as' Imperial Fists for the most part).  This version of the Salamanders doesn't quite match any of the other color schemes for Sallies that I've done, and it was nice to have a slightly new take on them.  
       
         
       
      PS- I've posted them to CMON for anyone who cares to vote.

      Yet another new mini, this time it's The Visarch, a mysterious Elfin knight.
       

       
      I wasn't actually planning on starting him yet, but made a nice dark red mix for something else that I thought would look great on the inside of his cape:-
       

       
      It's 1:1 Scarlett Red/Black > Black Wash > 1:1 Scarlett Red/Black > 1:1 Scarlett Red/Black with a brushtipful of Ochre Yellow.
       
      Since this guy jumped the queue it could be a while before anything else happens to him.

      Sometime in the middle of 2018 I pulled out this old GW Mordheim Ogre Mercenary mini, and poked at it a bit, intending on painting him up pretty quickly. If I remember correctly, I did the base intending on using it for the dire boar, but then decided that it didn’t work for that mini. I have only a vague idea of how I primed it, but I think I mixed Reaper’s Brush On White Primer with… Grey Liner? Maybe? After priming it I started painting the flesh with… maybe Tanned Shadow? Maybe Ruddy Flesh? Since then I haven’t done anything with it, and he’s been looking at me accusingly the whole time.

      Blurry picture cropped from the background of a work table shot where the ogre sat unloved 
       
      So time to get it done.
       

       
      Going back over the skin, I reblocked in with Ruddy Flesh. I used a bit of Walnut Brown to darken it for the shadows, and Rusty Red for the nose, cheeks, ears, and lip to make it look more fleshy. I used Linen White for the eyes, teeth and nails. Both the teeth and nails are going to need significant yellowing.
       

       
      The shirt was painted with Muddy Olive, while the jacket was painted with Rusty Red, while  just about everything else has been painted with Walnut Brown.
       

      More to come!

      Tzeentch has always been one of my favorite parts of the Warhammer 40,000 and Age of Sigmar settings. I love both the concepts behind the Changer of Ways and the brilliant deformed mutants and demons that form his legions.
      Here are some Tzeentch minis that I’ve gotten to paint up recently. They’re actually from a few separate clients who were all excited about Tzeentch in this similar color schemes.

      I've been working on this guy for well over a year I think, really just finished his base off b ut here he is in all his glory. Wonderful sculpt, typical FW resin (mold slips etc) but he's a beast in 30k games vs flyers so really really love him! :D
