Filed off the chain on the daemon princes sword that i'm turning into a spear with different chains...you'll see...and i found this huge hole..
This is how it's looking:
Greater daemon of pappy nurgle:
I wanted a slightly more angry pose with a tad bit o action. Hope i achieved this. Added some hooks to make it look more like a weapon as well:

My Nurgle army will be the Puss Pox Pague marines an off shot of the Deathguard Plague marines who Regenerate themselves in a cannibalistic (humans) reverse osmosis kind of way. When the Right DNA is absorbed it garners a state of exstacy that granted a wink from another chaos god, Slaneesh. The leader of this army is the daemon prince Malgathor the Wise.
Funny what goes through your head when your painting your mini's eh?
Ok got everything primed time to start the basecoats:
That was about 3 coats.
First highlight and a wash of 50/50 Druchii Violet and badab black
Next stage just a straight highlight of genestealer purple
Malgathor the Wise:

Covered the flesh and "fleshy parts" in Ghoul grey then washed heavy with a 50/50 water mix of GW flesh wash.

After and before in the back:
Yes that really is a fly i stabbed with one of my exacto knives (it's nurgles blessing i suppose).
Nedalose the Near-Sighted !
in the games i played back in third edition i had 2 of these in one of my armies, i couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with either of them. Maybe that big ass eye will help this one a tad.

Hi again for those who take a peek and see the things i like to paint.
Going back over the fleshy parts with ghoul grey i then preceded to highlight in spurts on the flesh. I forgot to take picks of that part exactly. However on the next step i decided to add some flavor to the models and you'll see it.
So please tell me, Do these look infected?
What do yall think?
The eyes and pustules will be finished with a brush into a creamy white in the final stages.

Next phase...personally i like where i'm going with this, although the pics really aren't that great they make the eye pop a bit on the table.
This is green and black ink about 25-75 ish. It shades the purples and brightens the skin in the right spots. yes yes, pics pics:
I think i might use this on my malifaux zombie mini's. What do you guys think?

What kind of airbrush do you use, and what kind of paints do you use for it? If Acrylic, what do you cut the paint with?
08-03-2012, 08:35 PM #28
I use a Master with a .2mm nozzle and a Devilbiss .35mm. I use GW new and old and even older, RMS and VGC and Andrea. The Andrea paints smell funny when you airbrush with them, i dunnno why, but they work as well as the rest. And for thinner i use windex and water.
Hoped that helped

I just picked up a Masters airbrush and swapped the .30mm with the .20mm. Anything to watch for? And what do you use to filter/strain paints?
08-04-2012, 07:46 PM #30
I don't strain my paints. You can if you want but its a hassle, a mess, and imho the results aren't much better with the paints i use. If your using older paints you might want to.
When i first got mine i was told to run around 20-25psi. Unless your doing tanks or larger models thats too high. Right now i run 8-15psi constant air pressure on the smaller stuff. Different paints will mean adjusting as you go, you will get the hang of that. Also most people say about milk viscosity but i like to be between that and water and do a lot of light coats, which btw is how i did the skin on everything you've seen.
You will also find that different paints clog differently too. I can paint with some non stop others 2-3 minutes before its clogged as the paints dry on the needle and nozzle tips.
hmmm... keep everything clean and go ahead and order a couple spare needles, cause you WILL bend the tip sooner or later. OH and always test before you spray your model.
Hope that helps
