Slimux

He was always a crazy model and one I have looked forward to painting, yes I have takenΒ  the eyes and the feet but dammit he look so derpy as-is in my opinion.

Plague Monks

Everyone needs a chaff unit, its just you have to look for rats when it comes to nurgle…

Or you paint up some Flagellants in a suitable scheme and they give you a nice mortal look to the units and lets be honest plague monks could be anything..

Beasts of Nurgle

So I really really really dislike the Beasts of Nurgle models both the old and new ones. So decided to make my own, yes not original using the drones but I do like them and I think they work so well.

Plus the idea of the stubby little legs pulling themselves along makes me smile

Great Unclean Slug One…part 2

For those keeping up my GUO is getting there from where it was in post number 1Β GUO1

So I am at the stage now where I think he is done! As hopefully you will see..

The next stages I had to do were the arms which you can see came out very very well, thanks to some blue stuff that let me make some molds of the arms just to help me get the scale OK, as I was nervous about getting them right especially the right bend/lengths.

The other side of things was to ensure the size of him matched the official model.

As you can see I think I have that nailed from the Birdseye view, so at least my original sketches are measuring up OK πŸ™‚

I also ensured that I kept checking things sat OK and as you can see the hands are almost perfect fits as is the head, however I then knew that the belly needed to be more substantial!

Then the fun could really start, the green stuffing of the details, as you can see I did go mental but hopefully not too mental that details are lost in the crazy!

But then I also wanted to make sure I didn’t create something too large and next to his brother Rotigus I think we have this nailed πŸ™‚

So something I did learn from this is Green Stuff is shiny and can be difficult to actually see some details. So anyone out there wanting to give it a go on any sort of big scale then make sure you undercoat the model at a stage you start to go green blind. As it helps immensely.

Which leads me to the stage I am now, some more work on bits I had missed before undercoating.

The spots of white allowed me say I am happy with an area, as I am now at that stage in which I could keep adding more and more detail when really I wont get any benefit for it other than I dont get to paint him.

So soon he will be hit with paint and hopefully I dont mess him much.
