Epic 40K Chaos Nurgle Plauge Blight

The pictures below are my first take on a Nurgle PlaugeBlight, an Epic 40K VTOL.

The first picture shows the basic model that I used for the conversion.  It is a Mech Warrior plastic model of a Hawk Moth Gunship.  It makes the perfect base.

The next shots show the basic paint job I did on it so that the Mech colours would be hidden and I had a plain base to begin with. I used a green mix for the bodywork and then GW Bleach Bone for the engines and weapons.  As this blog grows you will see the theme of 'bone' coloured weapons for my Epic Nurgle army.

A liberal application of Green Stuff, I use pre-mixed MMD Green Putty.  It is quick, simple and dries quite fast.  As you can see there was no real need for 'modelling' the putty just a rough coating and then some tweaking with a toothpick to create the 'holes'.

Once the putty was dry I applied a good coating of GW Devlan Mud wash, I love the stuff it does so much to improve the look of the model.

The final step was a gentle dry brushing of GW Bleach Bone over the bone coloured areas to add a little highlighting.

The model was then sealed with a spray of Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish.

Epic 40K Chaos

 Chaos Nurgle Reaver Titan

This miniture I bought off Ebay, it is one of about 7 I bought from a guy called Desperado, nice little conversions that work perfecty with my Nurgle Chaos forces
Based sprayed white, I used Army painter white and found it a little 'chalky' I think GW gives a smoother finish, however foir Titan size models it works.

The above two photos show the 'basic' paint jobs of Model Color Lime Green, GW Bleach Bone and Model Color Bronze.  The Lime Green does eventually get maksed by a wash.

Now I have liberally covered the 'rotten' areas with  GW Thraka Green wash, works well as a base coat for Nurgle.
Above it the model with a very genorous wash of GW Devlan Mud, really adds the bepth tones it all down.

Here is the finished model, minus the basing as I do not have an appropriate circular base with me at work. 

After the GW washes I simply heighlighted the 'bone' metal pieces with GW Bleached Bone, very simple and quite quick.

I have also picked out the 'sores' and 'boils' that the bless of Nurgle induce.

Overall I was quite happy with this model and feel that the photos do not really do it justice but I was never good at taking pics of models.
