Hi guys - so here is my first attempt at 8th

So here is my progress now that the wash has dried. I'm kinda doing this tutorial style, as a couple of people have asked how to do my version of nurgle flesh (you're welcome OJ and Alex). 

So, first off we have the pox walkers. They're zombies, according to the fluff.. something I have a lot of experience painting. 

20170618_122157.thumb.jpg.8a169d48a56e92658146fc1cddc1624d.jpg

I first primed everything black. The reason being is that light paint on black, then washed with black, will bring out the dark colour underneath the base coat. 

After the primer dried, I based all the models with Vallejo Heavy Warmgrey (72.148). After that had dried, I washed everything with Vallejo black ink. Be messy at this point and make sure the entire model is covered. 

The result will look like this.

I've decided I want my nurgle marines to have metal, rusted armour - as if the paint flaked off a long time ago. 

The first step was to cover the models in gunmetal, over the black primer. Then, afterwards, I liberally washed each model with Vallejo black wash.

The result should look like this.

And that's as far as I got last night.. but here is a quick bonus pic to demonstrate how big the plague drones are.

Lemme know what you think! I'll post more tonight.

The pox walkers have been given a weak purple wash.

This is what it should look like.

So, once the purple wash is dry, you need to do a dry brush of heavy warmgrey, then a lighter dry brush of Vallejo Off White (72.101) mixed with warmgrey  (about 1:1).

Each model should look like this when you're done.

Once that step is done - you need to apply one more wash - @kyriosepoch a very diluted black wash - which is black wash mixed with water - about 5:1. This will smooth the drybrushing and soften the edges. 

20170618_203000.thumb.jpg.703ed495f33102054fecad64af6135a9.jpg

Here is what each model should look like.

With that done, I'm going to move onto the clothing. As each one of these unfortunate bastards was once part of the Cadian Imperial Guard - I'll be using khaki, greens, and blacks for their clothing.

This is confusing because Vallejo has an actual "Light Grey Wash" and watering down black doesn't make it look grey lol

Yeah..  that's why I included how to make a grey wash using black wash .. and didn't just say "use a grey wash" - cause the grey wash made by Vallejo will not give you the result you want. 

Trust me... if you water down a black wash 5:1 with water, it will look grey.

I feel like watering down a black pigment doesn't lighten it, though. it just makes it leave less black. Doesn't it need white to turn grey? :P

No. It'll look grey. 

You'll also notice that the wash you posted is called Pale Wash.

I give Brear a lot of leeway in the morning. He's already been at work for 4 hours. 😉

Thanks dude. I'm actually really happy that I kept both sides of the boxes. I really like these models. GW did good this time around. 

Also, fair warning that this plog/tutorial is going to get real gross real quick. I'm going to be explaining how to do caked blood, guts, and rotting fluids complete with reference pictures. Keep in mind, the photos I will use will be from a special effects/movie site and not ACTUAL photos of caked blood, guts, and rotting fluids... but all the same - it won't be for the faint of heart or those who have weak stomachs.

Well.. I finished the green clothing last night - just gonna do the khaki and black before reposting photos. After that,  it's going to be doing a tutorial on stretched flesh and stretch marks.

Sorry I didn't get any pictures done last night - i had to put khaki and black on the remaining models - and it was pretty tedious work. I'll be doing some SFX on the models tonight and taking some pictures.

Phew.. so that was a big step.. but probably the biggest I'm going to have to do. As you can see, I painted the clothing on the model green and khaki, and the booths and horns black.

20170621_224708.thumb.jpg.9d817f7b14920069baf338ecaa7a3e6f.jpg

The next step is where I add more washes.. sepia to the green and khaki, and red to where the tumours, cysts and wounds are - mainly to look like a rash.

So.. I'm not done all of them.. but what I'm doing is adding a red wash over the wounds and cysts. It is the start of a rash pattern I'll demonstrate how it is executed. 

Here are some of the ones I've started.
