For my birthday, I received a mini I'd had my eye on for a while, Slimux and Mulch!

 

Slimux:-

He's a gardener, a demon gardener.

 

And Mulch:-

Is his loyal plough-snail.

 

Started on Mulch today:-

His shell was based with Hexed Lichen, then had drybrushes of 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Warlord Purple > Warlord Purple > 1:1 Warlord Purple/Squid Pink > Squid Pink, and then I painted Pure Black into the cracks and deep recesses.

Finally I glazed over the whole thing with some thinned Blue Ink.

 

As usual I used too much Glaze Medium, so I'm going to work on Slimux while it dries, if it dries.

Thanks!

 

I'm thinking a pale flesh colour at the moment.

While Mulch's shell slowly dries I've made a start on Slimuxs skin, so far it's a base of 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Dead Flesh with a Flesh Wash.

Somehow I managed to miss painting the palm of of his left hand, so that's my next job once he dries.

Finished his skin with highlights of 1:1 Dead Flesh/Dwarf Flesh and 1:1:1 Dead Flesh/Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh.

I also did his eyes, but yellow was not a particularly good colour choice for them, need to line the edges.

 

I'm leaving all his wounds and nobbly bobblies until I do Mulchs skin, which I've started but it's going to take a few coats.

Three coats of basecoat (1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh) done, another couple and it should be solid enough for the Flesh Wash stage.

I'm not sure why but when I first looked at the most recent pic.  I thought I saw the shell as a purple to black cosmos.  As always your stuff looks amazing.

Thanks! The satin varnish did a great job adding a nice sheen to it.

Finally got a decent basecoat layer down, so I could complete the skin (1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh > 1:3 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh > Thinned Flesh Wash).

 

Now to pick out all bumps and things on both Mulch ans Slimux.

There is something delightfully disturbing about the Nurgle miniatures. They do have a certain charm to them.

Your WONDERFUL technique is just the thing to bring out all the qualities of the Beasties. Have FUN with it all.

Thanks guys!

 

Yeah, I really like Nurgles demons too, they seem like the most fantastical of the four for some reason.

Somehow I missed painting Mulchs mouth.

The inside of mouth is 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Pure Black, the tongue is 1:1 Squid Pink/Old West Rose > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Squid Pink/Old West Rose, the lips are 1:1:1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh/Squid Pink/Old West Rose > Flesh Wash > 1:1:1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh/Squid Pink/Old West Rose > 1:2:1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh/Squid Pink/Old West Rose, and finally Olive Green eyes.

 

I then did Mulchs teeth (Ochre Yellow > Brown Wash > 2:1 Bonewhite/Ochre Yellow > Bonewhite with two brushtipfuls of the previous layer), this was also used on Slimuxs nails and horns.

Then it was Mulchs nails and tusks(?) (Bonewhite > Brown Wash > Bonewhite > 1:1 Bonewhite/Off-white), this was used on Slimuxs teeth and his chewing bone.

Finally finished their skin.

Their wounds were done in Warlord Purple > 1:1 Warlord Purple/Off-white, and their bumps were done with their flesh colours plus Ochre Yellow (this worked much better on Slimux), Mulch also had a big spot that I painted Light Green > 1:1:1 Light Green/Ochre Yellow/Off-white, but I could only find the one so it looks a little out of place.

They then both got a very thin glaze of Flesh Wash.

 

I also painted Slimuxs blanket seat, this was a base of  Blood Red shaded down with Scarlett Red and Scarlett Red with a brushtipful of Pure Black, then highlighted with 1:4 Red Orange/Blood Red and 1:2 Red Orange/Blood Red.

With 1:1 Bonewhite/Light Flesh maggots and Cork Brown stitches.

      I did these guys a few months ago.

      I challenged myself when I painted these guys and avoided using washes. I'm very happy with the turnout.
      I'd love to hear what you all think.

      Compared to some of their other models the 40K Imperial Sentinel is ALMOST a reasonable price.
      So for some reason I decided to do one in World War 2 German camouflage:

      Here my latest work. I keep trying and trying with black: highliting black. I tried with blue for a while till I was quite happy with it, and now I’m trying with grey which is more difficult... it does show here, since it completely reads as grey skin but oh well, it’s still a job I’m happy with. 
      That’s Be’lakor, one of the finest demon figures ever made by any manufacturer. First chaos everchosen, first mortal to ascend to demonhood, blessed and cursed, the lord of the dark...

      I don't usually paint Warhammer miniatures, but there is a local painting contest which has very specific rules so I figured why not.  I've never entered a painting contest before, so there is no time like the present.  I've decided to carry on with my experiments in object source lighting and apply wht I've learned so far in this project.  One of the big challenges will be doing the OSL in the metallic armour of the knight.  I've never tried that before.  The two figures are "Neave Blacktalon" and "Wight King".
       
      Here is my planned layout.  The white line is to align their line of sight so they are looking each other in the eyes.  The source of light will be a big glowing rune on the ground in between them.   I chose these two figures becuase they both have cloaks that are blowing in the wind, but they are blowing in opposite directions.  That means that when they are facing each other, the wind direction is consistent.  I intend to make the grass be bent over in the same direction as well.  The wind is blowing from the wight towards the knight.  I am very tempted to name this project "Fus Ro..."  That might not be genre appropriate though. 
       

       
      I had some in progress shots of the base but I lost them somewhere.  Drag and drop error, probably.  I used milliput to make the rocky base.  I used the base of another rocky miniature to make impressions to give it texture.  The wight's foot is incorporated into his base, so I incorporated his whole base into the milliput mass.  I sculpted the runes/rock circle into the milliput and then added sand to it.  In the crevices.  I made my first big mistake at this stage.  I added the grass tufts too.  I should have waited until after I primed the whole base and then painted the ground where the grass would be attached.  My thinking was that the grass would look better if it was highlighted with the OSL effect in the same way as everything else.  However, it has proven very difficult to get paint through the grass tufts to make them shadowed underneath.  Other than that, I like the way it turned out.  I prepainted the whole base using the stone greys triad.  I highlighted the base with the greys and added white to get the areas that would be hit by the light from the rune to be brightest.  Today I spent the morning painting the OSL effects onto the base.  This lets me make sure the OSL on the figures and on the base will line up with each other and also be the same colours.
       
      I am using these for the OSL effect:
       

       
      Here is where I am at so far.  The figures are beside the base on their cork handles so you can see how they will line up eventually.  I need to darken the areas around the outside edge of the base a lot more still.  It is actually a lot darker than it look in the picture already.  I added progressively Nightshade Purple and Brown Liner to the Stone Grey for the shadow areas on the base.

      Something I painted for a friend. This is tiefling #2 of 5 so far. Hoping that before he starts the new campaign that players may pick as their characters.  
       
      A short work in progress can be found on my just for fun blog/website EYEDAMAGEART
