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. :;):

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
       
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I wasn't planning on ever doing any more Work In Progress threads (The number of threads I've abandoned outnumber my finished threads by a pretty ridiculous amount at this point), but I'm trying to get back into the habit of painting every day and my brain is being a real jerk about it (he'd be a lot happier if I gave up on this whole painting nonsense and just stared mindlessly at a screen all day).
      So the idea is if I post an update a day, regardless of how much progress I've made, I'll shame myself into making sure I've done enough for a worthwhile update or something.
       
      Day 1 (Which was yesterday):-
       

       
      The King and his Seahorse have been undercoated, washed and I've started on the base, I got part way through applying the pumice paste before I realised I couldn't get to the middle without getting it all over the Seahorses tail/tentacles/tail-acles?
      Today I want to try and finish the base, and maybe start on the Seahorse.
