had some fun with testors metal paint. found a spay can of it in a box of old paint in the garage. after ten years, i was shocked it still worked. after painting i buffed with a rag to get a decent shine. then i weathered it with some pastels. i dullcoated it which lost the shine a little but still looks good i think.

not much time to paint this week. all i managed to get done on the nurgle guy is the gun. i did the yellow first in bubonic brown and shaded it with dark flesh. the highlight was bleached bone and white. after the yellow was finished, i painted the stripes in rhinox brown mixed with black.

I've had a few requests on painting my little nurgle dudes, so I'm posting a basic step by step here. this is what I've got so far.                                                                                                                                                                 

                                               i start with white primer.
                                                   then i add light coats of desert yellow. slowly building color. i let the white show through where the highlights will be.
                                                  next,  i go wash crazy. the fleshy stuff gets washed with fleshshade.
                                                  the armor gets several coats of gryphonne sepia. i don't wash it over everything. i paint it in the shaded areas and work my way out.
                                                 i paint some bolt gun on the pads and knife. then i add washes of earth and camoshade to darken the shadows and tint parts of the armor so that it isn't the same all over.
                                                 at this point i start highlighting with bone and white. more too come this week i hope.
                                                     I couldn't resist a little nurgling
                                                     I thought about experimenting with metal paints here.
                                                        and a little progress on this dude.

well I haven't been doing a good job lately keeping up on my updates. just too much work. but having the day off, I thought I'd post a few pics.
