Wow!! All of this is absolutely amazing something certainly to aspire to, my favourite has to be the ad mech with the hazard stripes - simply stunning! Subbed, you make me feel guilty for not doing painting since before the summer

You're right to be proud of Greyfax there. That burnished gold look for her armour is drop-dead gorgeous.

What was the technique?

Thanks guys, I should have some new painting wip tomorrow to show but for now we delve back into the gross Nurgley goodness and some tt Space Wolf guys

Greyfax's armour was the same recipe as my normal gold but I used more layers to get it sort of silvery gold. does this mean that because this is a new blog I get a chance to re do all the tutorials that ask about?

Nurgle...... Ewwwwwww





And the Wolves characters

More of Gits' Admech today with Cawl taking the spotlight and to keep the darkness at bay I also have the Celestine and friends models

The Nurgle guy is a Maulerfiend with a bit of conversion work, he'll be back with me soon to go on an Armies of Parade board!

Cawwwwwwwwwllll

Wow no love for Cawl! o.k I get it.........you want new wip?


here's my sniper scouts for my Minotaurs work in progress, I wanted them to still have the autumnal colours of the reds ochres and bronze metallic but still look as if they could hide and infiltrate and look 'right' next to their brethren the heads are from a place on Facebook called KF studios, they do some extremely cool Night Lords upgrades and models as well





and a little wip on Whaley's Enkomi, I'm approaching him slowly as i'm still working out his style. Blacker? verdigris? not sure but i'll work it out. he trusts me........

Since it's still kinda new, Nurgle needs a bit more re-love so here's the Nurgle Prince I did and something that could happily squish it into paste, probably a foul slimy rancid paste!


The Nurgley Daemon Prince!

Found some OLD pics! you may remember these models from way back! these will certainly bring back memories and I wish I had of now taken better pics of them and done more with them on the paint side of things, kinda makes me want to go all conversion-y and get gribbly again! sorry it's a bit of a mish mash!

lots of pics warning! warning!

It's funny, I actually saw those pink daemons recently trawling Google for maulerfiend conversions, didn't realize they were yours. Happy to see them again so soon Love the veiny weirdness going on with the fleshy Slaanesh dudes.

Absolutely have to follow this blog! You painting legend - I love the camo and colours on the Guard above.

Was the yellow paint you referred to last page Iyanden Darksun, by any chance? I must say, I do miss the old Foundation paints too, particularly Dheneb Stone. They all had a nice pastel hue which looked very natural. Still, the new range is awesome!

Stellar work, nerdy, thanks for sharing it all with us!

I just went and checked the paints I used for yellow work, so this is the way I do it.

The Army Painter Desert Yellow as a base, then wash with Agrax earthshade, next it's Flash Gitz yellow to start the yellow staining focused on the highest points and blended down with a damp brush after application. Next it's the same method but using Vallejo Model Color Lemon yellow, then last highlight is Vallejo Model Color Yellow Green and finished off with a wash of Cassandora yellow shade. if you need to or want to you can add another final small highlight of the yellow green again in spots.

That was the first time I tried to do the swirls! worked o.k I think, and my fave from those was the Leman Russ punisher barrel that I wanted to look like it was still glowing with heat from firing so rapidly! :-)

Thanks for the comprehensive breakdown, nerdfest! Really intricate process, and looks fantastic I’ve been using The Army Painter’s Skeleton Bone with a wash of Casandora Yellow for my Nids. It works quite nicely, but it’s certainly on the cartoony side.

Thanks again, nerdy, keep up the awesome work!

(I second the tank commander’s magnificent goggles! Clearly, The Imperium is for the kool kids (or should it be Orks?))

Do you guys want me to do a Yellow video for my youtube channel? I can find an old model or something with a few different surfaces to work on if you like? then after that i'll do my red tute!

Oh and here's some more pics...... The test models for Alpharius' army that I hopefully will be working on soon and the first time I used clear resin for effects on a base and hacked up a Lictor










and i'm looking forward to getting a Goliath gang to paint up and experiment with some new ideas.....

The Space Wolves and the Lictor are probably my favourites among your work, Damo. The Lictor in particular looks very "real": believably akin to some kind of crustacean or insect with the mottled skin effect and the natural tones.

Sweet God Damn! All of these are absolutely and utterly stunning, especially the Nurgly guys but especially the Slaaneshi daemons. Can't believe I hadn't taken the time to pore over your old plog to find these before.

Thanks for the painting tip on the silver-highlighted gold. I've just started experimenting with highlighting stuff with different colours (so something other than a lighter version of the same colour). Excited to try it on golds
