This is my take on Typhus, Death Guard champion of Nurgle.  Added a nurgling to his base and swapped his scythe blade out for a glaive because I thought it looked more awesome on him and I wanted to steal his scythe blade for a daemon prince conversion.  Note, I have decided that taking pictures of Nurgle paint schemes is a major pain.  The nastiness looks awesome for the force but taking pictures is a bear.  <_<

he is pretty monotone.  I think some simple edge highlighting would give you some contrast without losing the look you have.

He probably could use a bit, though in person the contrast is better.

 

often true.  so often we end up painting for the camera.  pretty crazy really.

For me Nurgle troops are especially difficult to find the balance on. I really don't want them to be too bright or pretty since they are supposed to be corroded and rotting, but that often leads to me getting a bit too happy with the 'wash of disgustingness'. :lol:

I have the same issues when I paint plague marines/anything Death Guard. You've done a good job on him.

      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.
