Hello everyone,

I realize I've written too much on the first posts, so I've edited them to remove all the non-useful stuff (and OMG there was a lot uh!!)

So this is the first mini I've painted after a 3-years break:

Introducing Skritch, Clan Pestilens Novice:


He's supposed to be a young skaven who has recently joined the ranks of the Plague Monks, that's why he has no right to handle a blessed-and-rotten staff, but has to fight with the casual sword and shield... Btw, the skaven symbol on the shoulder parchment was written with a paper pen... Easier that way!
I wanted something a bit different from rust on my Skavens, so I tried to obtain a "Verdigris" effect in the recesses of the shield, sword and nails, and I'm quite happy about it...


After some errors, trials and re-doing, I came to think I had to try and have the gem on its shield glow... Not so good, but it'll stay that way anyway...




These are the most useful tricks I've learnt with this model:

How to make "Verdigris" : mix 1/1 Scaly Green and Skull White, water down a lot (something like 1/3 paint, 2/3 water), apply in the recesses of the metal part, wait for 1min: that's done!
BEWARE 1: Verdigris, unlike rust, doesn't drip from its nesting place, so don't make it a fountain!
BEWARE 2: Don't have Scaly green anymore? Erh... I guess you could use some Hawk turquoise, mixed with a bit of Snot Green, plus White... I guess it could do DA job!

Dirty robes : on a very light base (Bleached Bone or Skull White), apply multiple layers of GW Washes; your main one can be Devlan Mud, Gryphonne Sepia or Ogryn Flesh (your call); in between each "main" layer, apply small patches of Baal Red, Asurmen Blue, Leviathan Purple, Thraka Green... Yum so rotten!!!

I guess that's all for today...

Until then,

@ghosty: What do you mean by summit?!?

And as for Tyranids, since I've lost most of my army (Genestealers, Hormagaunts, Warriors and Zoanthropes), I haven't bought some more... I've used some tyranid bits for my future CSM Possessed, but I don't think it'll help...

They were from the "Custom Tyranid" era, and I had made a horde of "jumpers", I had cut all the ankles of my gaunts and warriors, repositioned the "foot" as if they were in mid-air, put a few of them on flyer bases, it looked really dynamic and great (well, I thought so at least..)

If this is of any help......


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Ok, so let's go for another stride...

After painting the first member of my distant-far-future-maybe-in-a-year-or-two Skaven Army, I got some ancient Epic-scale Paladin Knights on ebay. For those that don't know, they were some sort of Imperial tiny titans, organised in Households (usually 9 Knights), often under the patronage of a Baron (a special Knight - not so good, but nice fluff anyway).

It quickly appeared that they weren't very detailed (plastic castings in the 90's... not so good huh!), so I first came up to this:

I was quite happy with the progressive blue to white on the main armour plates, but there was nothing much to catch the eye... So I tried something I was very uncomfortable with: freehand insignas!! After a few retries on a paper, I found a nice one that I could barely handle, but could look nice on the mini's shoulder. I came up with something that looked like a Scorpio:

Oops, some mishap, I submitted instead of previewing...

Ok so on with the Scorpio...

I added a few details and the Knight is now complete:

General view


Front view: maybe I should display an epic-scaled human model to imagine its bulk!?! Scorpio insigna on right leg, Knight number in formation (#4) on left leg...


Left side: an Inquisitorial badge, to remind everyone the Household is currently under the Inquisition's command, and the Scorpio insigna on the shoulder


Right side: A quite-failed flaming shoulder... and an arabic-like campaign badge on the leg.

As for the tall plant on the base, it's a simple cut off plastic plant I got from an interior decoration shop... but I think it looks great!

So this was the story of the Paladin Knight.... nothing very impressive, I admit... but it was fun painting it anyway... And it has given me some ideas for modelling a whole Nurgle household, with pus-belching guns and close-combat tentacles!!!

Things I learnt with this model: I had never thought I could paint a freehand stylized scorpio, that would look like a scorpio, but I'm satisfied with the result... !!


Now on to a new experience: sculpting nurglesque infestation with Green Stuff!!!

With WD issue XYZ (can't remember, sorry) were "generously" offered a SM Terminator and an Ork Nob, from the AOBR base box...

Ok, so I want to try greenstuffing it into a radical Inquisitor, who's bargained with the Ruinous Powers (especially the most generous of all Gods: Father Nurgle) and who's on the brink of yielding its soul to the dark side... I want it to be a test subject, so most of the model will be realized with the disposable SM Terminator parts, with a few bitz from boxes I have...
Hopefully, I had some sprues that helped me find some inspiration: some CSM, a CSM Terminator Lord and a WFB Imperial Flagellant Warband!!!

So the idea was that the once-noble Inquisitor has found a Power Fist imbued with a Plaguebearer's essence, had mounted it on its Terminator suit.
But the catch is that the daemonic weapon is slowly corrupting the Armour, and the Inquisitor inside!

The fist would be on the left side, so I maintained the right side of the suit as pure as possible (with a few battlewear), while showing that the corruption was coming from the power fist, and slowly reaching to the other side!
I first came with this:

But it wasn't obvious he was an Inquisitor, and the corruption wasn't as pronounced as I wanted it to be...

So I went deeper into the reasons why he had a blindfolded head:

[Reckoning its mistake but unable to end his mission for the Emperor, the Inquisitor has blinded himself with a torture-helmet. Seeing this, Father Nurgle has granted its future champion with a third eye, that has sprouted from the top of the suit]

You can see the tentacle and the Inquisitor's new eye here:

Also note the Inquisitorial Seal under the barrels of the Stormbolter: the last thing the heretics are seeing when they are executed is the Symbol of the Inquisition!!!

Next is a close-up on the daemon weapon: a Plaguebearer face is emerging from the PF, tentacles are coming out of it...


I also wanted to try and sculpt one of Nurgle's favorite symbol: the Fly! So that's why he ended up with a stylized nurglesque fly on his right leg: this personal icon is named Zobi (after a French song by "Les Negresses Vertes": Zobi la Mouche (ie. "Zobi the Fly"). I guess I can paint the Icon like human skin, spread and nailed on the leg...


Last pic: a rear view, we can see some more tentacles going out of the suit, plus an extra Inq. Badge on the pure-side (the right leg).
On the base is an eye sprouting out of the ground: this is a hint that maybe Tzeentch was the cause of all this, and is now watching his work?!? (and I had a small GS ball left, so I didn't want to waste it! )


I still have to find a paint scheme to paint him, so I can still try to improve this model.....
(I think I got the feel of a pure-half and a dark-half quite well, but who knows...)



Has anyone a comment or suggestion, so that I can try and make it better?!?

Thx for reading,

Reading, Berks

He's looking really good. One thing that you could do is make the purity seal on his left leg look really tatty. Let's face it, he's not very pure any more is he?

I remember the old (2nd edition I think) inquisitor in terminator armour was painted purple. For an interesting paint scheme maybe have the right side of him a nice shiny, bright, purple, slowly fading/flaking off into a dark, corrupt, rusty aubergine type colour on the left?

Love the third eye by the way

Ah, the Inquisitorial seal on his leg wasn't supposed to be the usual "purity parchment" but more of an armour plate...

I think I didn't get it that good huh...

As for the purple scheme, that could be a nice idea.... I've always loved purple models... Maybe I'll try something like this (may have to test it on a SM model though beforehands uh! )

Thx for the comment....

As I had the free-issued-with-WD Ork AoBR Nob, I wanted to try something different from my Skavens, Undead or Daemons, so begun work on him... I had painted two WFB Orcs for my Undead army years ago, so this would be my first Ork ever... A bit daunting

I didn't like his head so swapped it for a WFB one, drilled a hole through his left eye then screwed a... screw into the hole to make a crude bionic eye...


Then added an Orkish "aimhole" (don't know the word in English sorry) + foresight on the Slugga


And a piece of protective cloth from a military detonator package, which would turn out either as a tiger pelt or a camouflage piece of clothing...


I didn't want much for the conversions, so with this done, I begun painting him...
I have always liked the "Tiger Meet", an international meeting of all Air Forces Squadron that have the Tiger as their symbol, so this inspired me for this Nob [ link: http://www.natotigers.org/ ]...
Why not having a stray tribe of the Blood Axes Klan worshipping "Da Great Tiga" as their war totem?!?

White basecoat, some bright colours, an orange+black shoulder pad, orange details, some highlights...


Decided that the more "techy" features would be close to Hawk Turquoise,

and recalled the blue bionic eye and red right eye on the rear of the choppa:


I didn't want to use metallic colours so tried to NMM the grenade, choppa and slugga, but it didn't turn out that well... It was my first try, so I guess I'll have to do better next time!

After some more work, basing finished, final highlights, armour camouflaged, I can introduce...

Gruuk, Brutish Nob of da Wyld Tigaz Klan!!!

I think he meant the purity seal next to the 'fly-plate'.

I have a question about the eye: did you do the whole thing in one go, or did you get the basic shape down and then add the eyelid once it set?

... I'm so dumb lol....

Oh I see what you mean... That's quite right actually, this was concern earlier but forgot about it...

So what do you think? Should I utterly scrap it off?

Should I keep it? If so, how can I show it's tainted? Some more greenstuffing? Only through painting?

Dragonlover wrote:I have a question about the eye: did you do the whole thing in one go, or did you get the basic shape down and then add the eyelid once it set?


I did it in 2 steps: first the eyeball fitted on the end of a "looped" wire (to make some bulk for the eyeball), waited for the GS to cure, then process the entire tentacle, finishing with the eyelids...
I also "dropped" one or two plastic spikes on the tentacle itself, as you can see on this pic and a small GS "horn" to remind of the "one eye - one horn" Plaguebearers...

I did the same for the Plaguebearer's eye on the Power Fist: first eyeball, cure, then eyelids...

Actually I had no Plaguebearer model or pic when I sculpted it, did it only from memories, plus it was my first real attempt at sculpting, so I'm pretty happy with the result... Just concerned about how it will turn out once painted... I hope it won't get too messy!!!

Hope this answers your question...

I'd go with painting it so it looks really aged, so a sort of nicotine yellow in the middle of the parchment, with quite dark brown edges. Maybe cut some nicks into the wax part?

The Inquisitor is looking great. Where is that head from?

The only criticism I have is the tentacles don't look like the come from any where. Are they supposed to be part of his body or separate creatures riding around on him? If they are part of his body then you should have the armor cracked around the tentacles. If they are separate I would paint them with a very individual color scheme to the model to reinforce that notion. If they are separate things then in game they could be his familiars which are allowed to be mounted on the same base as the inquisitor. Perhaps they are all that is left of a poor cherub and a servo skull.

If I'm not mistaken, the head is from the much abused Flagellant box. I really need to get one of those myself, thinking about it.

Dragonlover's right, the head's from the WFB Imperial Flagellant sprue...

I had bought a whole box at first for some renegade IG, and this one head was one of the ones I liked the least, but I think it fits well with the model (on a metaphoric aspect only... it was painful getting the beard fit into the armour!!!)

Ironwright wrote:

They're supposed to sprout from inside the armour, but only he (and Father Nurgle) knows whether they are part of his body as well uh... I didn't do cracks on the armour but a lot of mushy flesh where the tentacles emerge from the suit... But maybe I didn't get it right...

(Please be tolerant, that was (and still is) my first attempt at sculpting [and I've never good at arts in school ])




@ Dragonlover: Yeah, go and have some!!! Flagellants are invaluable as spare bits!!! The models are great, a lot of details & bits, that are very characterful... be it for IG, Witch/Daemon Hunters, Daemons, CSM, even Skavens (oh a lot of bells!!!)
My Plaguebearers Command benefitted alot from them: the blood-covered spikes, icon pole and bells come from this very sprue!!! Not to mention the possibilities with their bodies!!


First squad Icon bearer



First squad Instrument-bearer

Some simple conversions, but helped me avoid twin commands of both Plaguebearer squads!

Put some efforts on the rest of the Plague Monks regiment... The sprues were, as usual, quite full of bitz, so came up with a few no-mundane Plague Monks characters:


The champion's not here: somehow I forgot to take some pics of him!

These are the Monks in detail:

  • Halberdier Monk



  • Mutant Monk


  • The ratface banner top looked like a mask to me; couldn't have Wyrdstone mutated a ratling and have his head sprout from one of his arm?!? This one tries to conceal this by wearing a mask, to no avail of course !!

  • Tink, Skryre bodyguard

  • Crookspaw, the Plague Priest, had "befriended" some Skryre enginseers, who had offered him to turn one of his novices into a Skryre killing machine! This poor Novice has had his arms cut off, then was grafted a huge Wyrdstone shard to power his overstrained body and a censer flail to crush his master's foes.... But he's not aware of it anymore, for his brain has been twisted by the raw power of the Wyrdstone!!



  • Ragamuffyn, the Puppeteer



  • And I had a bit of time, so painted two of them, a Lancer and a Horned Rat Icon bearer:


    Lancer Monk, painted mainly with Citadel Washes, on a white undercoat


    And a very pious Monk with Icon... on a black undercoat... had a bit more trouble with this one

    Next will be some pics of Crookspaw, the Plague Priest!

    Hi everyone,

    It's been a while since I last posted in this thread... I guess self-threadomancy isn't that serious?!?

    Anyway, I have been working a bit on my plague monks during summer time, here are a few pix...

    First is a group shot. We cannot see that much, but it appears some of you like to see the other's workspaces, so it'll give you a glimpse!



    Next are two of the almost finished lads...

    The Puppeteer :



    And :



    And his friend, Bell-ringing fanatic Monk :



    I am especially proud of his "face", I don't know how I managed to paint all those little wrinkle-like strokes... Please zoom in on him and let me know what you guys think!!

    Thanks!!! It was pretty much a test, and it kinda stands out from the more conventional looks of the mini, but I like it as well...

    As for Island of Blood, a friend and I each bought 1 box, sharing the two armies.

    As you can guess I got my hands on the Skavens, and he took hold of the pointy-nitty elves!
    The catch is, my Friendly Games Workshop store is running a painting contest for the release of Island of Blood!
    For those who had pre-ordered the box, there was a lottery in which each guy was awarded a random mini...

    As lucky as ever, we picked up 1 Skaven lancer & and 1 Lothern Sea-guard (there were rat ogres, mages, Moudler packmaster left... ) !! So, wanting to challenge the Nasty Gods of Luck & Chance, we each settled on a race swap for the contest : I would be painting the Sea Guard, and he the Skaven Clan Rat!

    I'm not used to painting Elves, but I'll try my best... The deadline is September 25th, so wish me luck!!!

    This is the progress I've made so far:



    I'm not pretty happy with the blue basecoat on the shield, and I'm thinking of turning it back to white....

    Whaddya think?!?

    More than sixty views in 1 day and not a single note, such as "keep it blue" or "turn it white"?!?

    Well, I've kept on anyway... Here's today progress... I decided to turn the shield back in white...



    I mostly worked on the shield & the cloth pieces...



    I'm a bit disappointed by how the orange cloth turned out... But I cannot figure out what's been done wrong...

    Is it the highlight colour?!?

    I went:
    Basecoat in Macharius Orange,
    Wash in Baal Red,
    Macharius Orange coat,
    Blazing Orange highlights, adding some Skull White & Sunburst Yellow for the lighter ones,
    up to pure Skull White,
    And finished with a glaze of Blazing Orange...

    What's wrong with this?!?


    I'm much happier with the shield :



    From that close, it's a bit messy, but I'm really happy with the freehand scales - merely dots, actually - on the "wyvern" and waves....

    I still have a lot to do:

    - some more waves on the armour lining,
    - goldish NMM attempts on the shell-like items and silver NMM on the mails,
    - the gems,
    - the face,
    - the green pieces of clothes,
    - some vine freehand attempts on the helmet,
    - the base.

    As of the gem, I'm still wondering what colour would be best...

    I'm tempted by red, but it will add another colour on the mini and I'm not sure that's a good idea; a deep blue or purple also appeal to me...

    I'm no good a colour theory, so I wouldn't mind a little help....

    Thanks for looking!

    Hey, this is some very cool stuff! I would say you have a shot at winning the contest, the High Elf Prince looks very good, and he is still WIP, so that is a bonus.
