Re: Nurgle Genestealer Cult

Looks like I missed a post or it got deleted? I'll post it after this one. I finished my first purestrain genestealer. I decided to keep the Patriarch's color scheme instead of reverting to the normal scheme.

Re: Nurgle Genestealer Cult

Apparently I've been painting so fast and furiously that I missed posting my first hybrid. So here he is in all his Nurglesque glory.

Re: Nurgle Genestealer Cult

The purple skin splotches on the hybrid look REALLY good and I think you should add some to the purestrain you did. It will make the paint schemer more interesting. Your colour choises are great, but the purestrain does look a bit "boring". The splotches would really add a huge amount of fine detail to the overall effect, plus make it look more nurglesque. Plus they are not so hard to paint in.

Re: Nurgle Genestealer Cult

Thanks guys. I'm glad to hear you like the cult so far. As for the purestrain genestealers, I kind of want them to me more "plain". I think of them as kind of generic when it comes to the cult. They have no names and only speak telepathically so to me they have no real personality so I prefer the faded into the background while still having some presence within the cult. I prefer to concentrate more on the hybrids and other personalities in the group. That being said here is the second of my Goodwin hybrids. I will hopefully get to start painting my Olley hybrids on Monday. I suspect the arms I am getting will come on Monday. If they do I'll be starting on one for a hybrid paint contest.

Here is another hybrid. He is the coven banner bearer.

Re: Nurgle Genestealer Cult

Those skin spots look ace! I might give that a try myself one of these days. It's it pretty easy to achieve? Do you just dot on a few spots with paint & then apply an ink wash of the same colour in the general area around the spots?

Oh, and it's nice to see the Dark Tongue getting some use too :D

Cool freehand banner by the way. I can only dream of doing something like that in 2D :mrgreen:

Re: Nurgle Genestealer Cult

Thank you.
The skin spots are fairly easy. Probably the hardest part is making them subtle enough. Basically I get the part of the head wet and add dots of paint so the paint bleeds a little but not enough to turn into a wash. Then once that is dry I do a proper wash over the area. Its easier to do with oils because you can apply the dots then use a little thinner to make them fade since the paint doesn't dry as fast as acrylic.

Re: Nurgle Genestealer Cult

Here is the next hybrid. Just two more to go after this one. I've wanted to use this shuriken catapult for a long time.
