I was going to make some comment about how good that yellow is, but then I saw the banner. Wow, man, superb work!

Re: Winterdyne's Nurgle Project

Wasn't keen on the banner. I'm tweaking it.

Yellow is really, really easy by the way:

VMC Red leather basecoat. This is a brownish orange, and has excellent coverage over black.

Drop a bit of Agrax Earthshade or similar brown over that.

Relayer with red leather, avoiding recesses.

Layer on VGC heavy ochre. (Alternatively use a mix of flat yellow in this).

Layer on VMC Flat yellow (work toward edges, feathering style).

Extreme highlights with VMC Light Yellow.

Edit: I almost exclusively use vallejo paints these days. VMC = Vallejo Model Color, VGC = Vallejo Game Color, VMA = Vallejo Model Air, PA = Panzer Aces (great browns and mud colours, but kinda thick).

Stunning work catches the feel of Nurgle brilliantly without the overload of rot often used.

Re: Winterdyne's Nurgle Project

To be honest, both banner iterations look fine to me. I can't free-hand to save myself, so it's doubly impressive to me. Love the take on the standard bearer too, never seen him painted up yellow before. Great work man :)

Re: Winterdyne's Nurgle Project

Looking very good, old-school feeling mixed with some more modern painting styles. Weapons in particular remind me about Warhammer 3rd edition pictures. Bases look a bit garish and someone might complain about yellow leaves on clean, green grass, but OTOH it enchances the paintjob's effect. Very sexy!

Re: Winterdyne's Nurgle Project

Nothing's varnished yet - I may tone things down (tint the basework all a bit brown) a bit yet.
