Nuln vs Agrax


Recommended Posts

I was confused as to the difference between agrax earthshade and nuln oil. I don’t deal in GW stuff too much. 


So I took some zenithal primed mummies and put it on. Left is nuln, right earthshade. 




I think the left one is pretty much good. I’ll probably take the bunch and dry brush some linen white on them and give them red eyes.

I quite often use a 50/50 mix of the two. Pure Nuln Oil is too stark and cartoonish, pure Agrax Earthshade is too brown and warm. The combination of the two gives me the darkness I want, with a touch of colour.


Alternately, I'll do an overall wash with Agrax and then come back in with Nuln in selected areas to pump up specific shadow regions.
