Jesus Christ, dude!! What the fuck happened?!! Have you seen a doctor about that??!!!

I look a better look at that and that is a serious bacterial infection  (you can see from the discoloration and the swelling at the foot). If you haven't gone to see a doctor yet, you really need to go to emerge. You can't fuck around with infections like that - one of my best friends contracted flesh eating bacteria that way and he almost died. 

Keep us updated man, and take care.

I have been informed to calm down and that you're already in a hospital. Lol. 

Get better soon, buddy.

So, here are the models with the metals applied and a brown wash applied to the metal, green and khaki.

Also... I wanted to mention  that I get my inspiration largely from a studio called Third Eye Nuke. Here is their YouTube greater daemon of nurgle. 

 

She's really good. Here is a tutorial on using an airbrush for you folks who don't know. 

I'll be updating later today.

This is the last step before adding the blood.

20170625_220045.thumb.jpg.3db516ea42cb12c2684dc26fdfd81b69.jpg

I've added pus using Vallejo's pus special FX paint, and then I added about 1:1 dead white to the pus, and then watered it down a lot - close to 5:1 water to paint  I then proceeded to put a dot on all the pustules to make them look like they're filled with liquid.

Now onto the blood and gore. I'll post again when I'm done.

I've put the caked blood on the models.

This is kind of a base coat for the wet blood. It is about a 3:1 mix of blood SFX paint and black paint. This is what it looks like in the palette.

I've also decided to include the front and back for each miniature. It was just 10 grabbed at random.

Bonus points if you noticed the bits of crushed skull and matted hair in the bloody bits of the random bludgeoning weapons. 😆

I'm pretty happy with them. Let me know what you think in the comments.

The models look great. I do find these photos very hard to look at, just seems there is a general orange hue to the photos. hard to pic out details. Could just be me. But sweet models none the less.

I didn't adjust the temperature of the photos this time. I'll cool them down a bit and repost.

Are these better? Unfortunately my photo space has yellow light instead of white light, so photos sometimes reflect that. Here I adjusted the temperature of the photo - so that should solve that problem.
