Nice work on the Nurgloid, the big eyes and head look really good. FWIW I think the colours you chose work well, the spots seem a bit twee for Nurgle.

The mobile hobby set up works well, I’m amazed you could take it on holiday with you. I’d be looking for a new Mrs gobert if I were to suggest such a thing!


Thanks Gobert My wife is very forgiving of my hobby, something I greatly appreciate

Super quick update today
1) I finally pulled the pin on the bug wings. If I had been able to dedicate more time and more greenstuff (or a cheaper alternative) to the project I think they would have looked great, but were simply not coming off as well as I hoped and were going to take waaay too much time and materials. So, metal bat wings it is:





I also started the true nurglification of the DP by gouging a hole in his breastplate and spilling out some guts:





converting is great, but Nurglification is the *really* fun part of this build expect more updates soon!

I think you made the right call. It was a cool idea, but the current version looks better. Going to be an awesome piece!

Looking good darkkt, the gribbly bat wings work well. The guts spilling out is a cool and necessary touch for one blessed by papa and your GS skills continue to serve the dark gods well!

Ho... Ho.... Ho...ld up.
Its not a discount Santa.
It's not (as my daughter once called it) a Great Uncle.
It's... a nurgling!



what do you mean everyone knew it was a nurgling?

Very happy with how this guy is looking at the moment, its got a more 'current nurgling' shape to it than my previous dude who was (whilst I'm still happy with him) was far further away from the current 'pear-shaped' lads.

Quick step by step of the process:

1) Armature (a kid's bead and wire from a champagne bottle top)



2) Rough shapes


3) Refinement and details (teeth etc)


4) positioning (and a few more adjustments - including the bell ring-hold and the hand he's holding the horn with.



I think I'm nearly done on this guy to be honest. I've added a load of gross details to his back to fill in space:

and changed his boots for gross claw things


Only a few more details and I think he'll be ready for an undercoat... although the undercoat can reveal previously hidden flaws, so there may well be a new round of greenstuff after this too.

Can't wait to start getting paint on him! Havent figuredd out what colours he'll be, but I'm sure it will be fine

speaking of paint:


Cheers

That’s one posh nurgling made of champagne bits, he must have slaaneshi tendencies! He looks really cool. The big chappy is cool too. Surely he should at least share a bit of his palette with your death guard?

Damn, I shouldve sculpted a top hat and a monocle for him (scribbles down notes for 'monopoly-guy' themed nurgling base...) Oh yeah, the big guy will definitely have some green and brass/bronze, but I'm not sure how much just yet.

youwashock wrote:Man, you got greenstuff powers...

Thanks

I've undercoated everything now and the paint is indeed coming on. I started with the scythe, as it was ready to go. This is where I'm at:


I didnt take many step shots, but First some brown and then lots and lots of brown-orange & orange stippling to give it a dirty rusty look:




Then I hit it with a wash of agrax in an attempt to tie the colours together, followed up by attempts at Nmm scratching using greys and white



This was ok, but the agrax went too far, and I needed to bring back some brightness. I did a light drybrush of orange and then tidied up the scratches again:





I think the after shots are pretty much where I want this to be on the rust. I *might* add the faintest little touch of blue to the scratches... the simple grey is just not feeling really 'metal' to me yet.

Apart from that, I did a quick bone base coat for Belly here:


Looking forward to hitting this guy with some more paint - Im very pleased with how its going

Cheers
KT

Thanks for the step by step on the rusty metal. I think you’re right on adding something else like blue, right now I think it looks a bit frosty. The nurgling looks like he’s about ready to steal the show though!

MOAR COWBELL!



Hehe, I'm pretty happy with this little guy





He's not quite done yet, but you can see the sort of skin tones I'm trying for - a deeper purple base with elf flesh and then a turquoise contrast colour in the shadowed areas. I need to make it a little more refined, but he's heading in the right direction.

Apart from this I've started hitting the main DP with some base coats




Much like the nurgling and the guy's head, I've started with a base of Volupus Purple contrast, then I'll shift to highlighting with elf flesh + random other colours (yellows and browns etc).

Apart from my fleshy lads I've leaned into the scythe and *tried* to drop a 'bronze' effect on the decorative parts... I'm not 100% happy with them yet, but I reckon they are pretty close.... Sigh.



Added some age to the handle


I think it looks pretty good - let me know what you think
















Otherwise I've been focusing

Looking good, the purple base for the little guy has worked well. I like the bronze effect, but maybe it’s a little on the dark side?

See, I think that too. I'm thinking I need to brighten the brown in it a touch... At this stage Im going to leave it, and work on the body. the shoulder pads are going to be bronze, so if I can get a suitably bright effect on these then I'll revisit the scythe.

Anyway - time for for the body to get 'fleshed out'.







Early days yet, but these WiP's are encouraging, so I'm happy with my choices so far .
It gives me a weird kinda attack on titan vibe... not intentional, but I'm not unhappy.

Nice and sore skin tones you’ve achieved. I think he’s either rocking out on air guitar or doing a bit of an air grab

Ah... looks like I accidentally finished it.

(quick selfie with my bestie)


AAAAHHHHHHHH
feels good to get this dude done Here's the full body shots


Front


Right


Back



Left

And some 'highlights'







to be honest there's a lot of stuff I might have done differently (the armour paintjob is too busy, the freehand on the bottom of the robes is not really noticeable from a distance and the scythe still coould have been brighter) but all that said I'm pretty Proud of the end result and Im very happy to put it down and move onto something esle!

What something? Going to try and get the June Model of the Month done so its a Sister of Battle. I've decided to move entirely away from the grim-dark chaos aesthetic and try for something more contemplative... ergo I've attempted to sculpt a bonsai looking tree with flowers on it.







No idea how its going to turn out, but I'm excited to try and get a nice clean effect in a short period of time

Anyway, let me know what you think!

the DP came out great, lots of cool details. I like how from a distance he looks to be coming out of the filth on the ground, then up close you get to see lots of details. That free hand on the cloak is something else though! Excellent stuff as usual

Update time - work progresses on the SoB. Enjoying my colour choice here
First off a basecoat of Fulgrim Pink


Then applied a heavily diluted mix of Volupus Pink Contrast (using Contrast medium)

its really acting as a shade here, just pooling in the shadows and deeps



Now I'm working on some quick highlights:


My attempted marble effect on the base using spray cans did NOT work, so I'm going to try and redo it tonight.

Meanwhile I have looked ahead at the IW discord contest for next month and apparently its going to be Tzeentch or Khorne. Decided to go old-skool and drop in some 2nd ed Tzeentch flamers!

I painted this one years and years ago:


However he and his friends are looking just a bit shinier now...


Planning on doing minimal changes to the actual structure of these guys, just looking at minor touches by adding small flamey-bits in greenstuff.

Of course Flamers of Tzeentch come in squads of 3, 6 or 9 - so time to build one more flamer - this ones going to be a Pyrocaster (so fractionally bigger and more-flamey-ier?....*shrug*)


Armature first:


Then put down a base - this can be 'unrefined' at this stage.



Mind you, this is pushing the definition of 'unrefined'


Lumpy the Pyrocaster: "Father, why have you created me? What is my purpose? Why can I feel pain?"



Cheers all and catch you next week

Finished: Adeptus Sororitas, Order of the Falling Blossom

This was a lot of fun to build and paint, let me know what you think (C&C welcome)









The sister was painted using (mostly) these:

both contrasts were well thinned with contrast medium, and obvs there was some white mixed in





The tree was painted white first, then I messily detailed all the inner cracks with a dirty mix of brown and grey left over from my daemon prince build, then a wash of watered down agrax earthshade. all the flowers were then picked out in white again.



I feel it ended up reasonably organic looking

I then went over the flowers with fulgrim pink, a dot of thinned volupus pink, and an edge highlight of pale pink (fulgrim pink + white).

The base was painted white and then i hand-painted the marble lines in. One of the 'tricks' here was that I would sometimes wet the base before or after painting, meaning that any undried paint would be diffused/blurred. I like the effect



fallen blossoms picked out as per tree.


Tree and base





A little compulsory freehand


This was pretty simple too - squiggly grey lines with tiny pink blotches. I quite like the effect

Funnily enough the hardest part of this was her face - I redid this so many times I was worried I was going to obscure her face details - I eventually just got it 'fine, I guess' and left it at that. I've seen she's got a bit of a 5 oclock shadow lol.

Maybe I need to dedicate some practice to faces? Not a terrible idea actually...

Anyway - Let me know what you think!
Cheers

Beautifully done sister Darkkt ! Love that you also did some petals fallen on the base ! And the freehand on the cape is a nice touch.

A full squad of these would be great to see ^^ !

Uh - I'm back!

it's been a busy couple of weeks at work, so I've had limited time to paint and have fallen behind on my dakka updates too. Finally got a moment to get back into it

First off - replies:

Thanks KernelTerror, I am very happy with almost all the model (I shoulda spent a little longer on the face - might revisit it in the future maybe). I think a full squad would be pretty cool too - im planning on getting the new kill team box for my birthday, so I can see me possibly picking up a box of sisters to make a sisters KT Spec Op squad ... in a few years once Ive gotten through my current box of shame of course lol

Cheers GcG - I was looking for a really simple but effective bit of freehand, I think branches of blossoms nails it! It was really quick to lay down, and was random so I couldnt stuff it up.

Haha cheers Gobert - I spam my pics pretty much everywhere, wips go here and on insta, whilst reddit, facebook and twitter tend to get finished pics only. I was calling them Sakura, but Hanami sounds good too

And now...
oh, I need to do my tax. damn. I'll post some pics tomorrow then I guess.... maybe I'll just drop off a really quick pic...
