Inspirational work. With the rusty metals did you go light>dark?

Re: Winterdyne's Nurgle Project

The metals are very simple:

Basecoat with gunmetal.
Stipple with red-brown (sienna) all over and a bit more sparingly with some sort of orange (I used Vallejo Model Color red leather).
Wash with agrax earthshade (brown ink type stuff).
Highlight with thin glazes of gunmetal and then a mix with some sort of silver (I like Vallejo Model Air Alumunium) if necessary (sword on the green warrior dude is most noticeable).
Highlight edges with a more silver mix.

Looking very nice. Good to see the bases getting a lot of love too.

Thank you very much. I've got some Fantasy Tribe Skeletons on my painting desk and will probably use a bastardised version of this recipe for their weapons/armour.

Re: Winterdyne's Nurgle Project

I should point out the 'if necessary' part could also read as 'not very likely to be needed'. It's the edges that make metals pop and look like metal; usually you can get away just doing the edge and then maybe some hotspots brighter (extreme corners).

Re: Winterdyne's Nurgle Project

There have been far too many posts without a picture. Got another plaguebearer added (blue Doomblight). It'll be fun trying to disguise the repeated sculpts with variant paintjobs (this will be a unit of 30 plaguebearers... eventually).
