    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the nocturna paints
    The skin tone on the second bust is very specific, but I like the result you got. The "kind of sad/worried" look you gave to his gaze matches the lowered head and gives it a nice touch!
    Feel free to come by my WIP or have a look into my Gallery

    I really do need pointers for:
    - skin (looking ok or not)
    - organs, tentacles and stuff... how to make it better, a lot better
    Forgot, that it works again.

    Maybe having a look at the severed head of a dragon on the last work form Sprocket gives you some nice insight?... You could try to add little pale maggots to level up the disgusting feeling...
    Not sure on the skin, I think there is something missing or wrong but cannot point out what may be... deepest shadow colour I see it as a very dark green? (on my screen)

    Will most likely follow the GW official guides, tweaked here and there for my liking.


    The plagued bust will be the "face" of the army

    Damn Maxx, that's one hell of a bug you've been infected by :P

    granted, with 8th edition out, I'm starting to a get a bit of a itch myself that only painting could soothe.

    On the plague bust, do you have a more neutral/grayer background to take pictures against? It looks to me like the man's skin has a warm undertone, but the plague/blood/organ bits have a cold undertone, and that may be causing one or the other to look somewhat off; Maybe it's just me.

    Otherwise, my gut would say adding glazes of colors to the highlights and midtones may bring the skin into a more lifelike form; Blues for bruising, red's for a couple patches of warmth, yellow's for (I assume) warm sunlight overhead. The plague/organs part could use more color variation as well. Perhaps the tentacles change into a darker purple or blue the further they get from the central mass; You could also do patterns on the tentacles, similar to a octopus or other fish. Maybe the veins of blood (or ichor) inside the plague mass could be showing through the "skin" of the mass itself.

    Another thought, is the damage to the man's skin: You could add dried blood from the wounds, as well as bruising/necrotic wear to indicate his ignorance/acceptance of the damage his body has suffered; Blood for the blood god may be good here to indicate a trickle of blood coming out of an open wound.

    As usual I got derailed by something else. Wanted to finish the TTQ Vile-Tis army before I start with the Nurgle one.

    Here is a wip(mostly done actually) of them
    Name:  Vile-Tis Army.jpg

    The black is not as smooth as it could be, but for and army it's ok. I'm still waiting for the water on the bases to clear up. Then I might do a second coat with tinted water and maybe some smoothing on the armor.


    Derail no 2.:
    I was in the GW shop today to support them by ordering the boxes from next week there (that way the shop gets a share) where they told, that they do a painting 'competition' for a single Primaris SM. I agreed to it, as it's much more likely that I finish with it as with finishing the DG army before the end of juli (especially as FF12-remaster comes out next tuesday).

    So I got a free mini and my questions on this to all of you, what and how should I paint it?
    - showroom vs battleworn
    - chapter??? (thinking mentors / howling griffons / IF-s)
    - strong colors like the mini from Hendarion (http://www.coolminiornot.com/414875) or more 'realistic' muted colors

    what effects could be added to SM minis?
    - Urban camo? Rackham circles? ???? I absolutely have no idea how to make it more special than a simple paintjob. What could be added to the plain armor plates to make them look great?

    Thanks for any ideas.


    PS:
    I ordered the 'how to 40k' booklet that comes out next week with another free Primaris, so if not here, than on that I'll try to replicate Hendarion's IF. (Likely without success, but I'll try anyway)

    Great group there mate, the simple matching colour scheme is a winner
    "we reach for the stars, forever looking to the heavens, our minds filled with wonder and the glory of the cosmic all; stretching the boundries of human knowledge and securing the solar system for the Human Species out there beyond the final frontier so one day our decendants will be as gods!
    You hold our hands so we don't blunder into things........and do the photo shop.

    Nice Vile-Tis army, maxx! It's always a good feeling to finally finish a project.

    For the first marine, a Battleworn Mentor's marine would be pretty cool. You could probably do a off-white/gray urban camo as a replacement for the white on the model; Not sure if a digital camo green would also work for the green areas. As an additional detail, aside from battle damage/dust/blood/etc, you could also add campaign icons and battle honors. Another choice, if you wanted to do a chapter that regularly uses camo, could be Raptors. Though, most of the pictures I've seen online have been jungle camo or tundra camo.

    On the second one, if you wanted to do a high contrast mini, but don't want to do Imperial Fists, what about Lamenters? Mostly yellow, with some white/black checkered areas and red accents could work well.

    Whatever Vile-Tis is, yours look really cool. I really like the pale one and the green one in the back.

    For your Primaris, could you 'convert' it by using maybe a 7th ed. Deathwatch shoulder pad & weapon, perhaps? Don't think I've seen that yet. Have fun & viel Gluck!

    Can I make an umlaut on CMoN?

    thanks for the replies.

    In the mean time I went with a mostly "Mentors" SM, but using turqoise instead of the green. The basic SM is done, now comes the freehand, chipping, rusting, etc.

    Vile-Tis: an army from the game confrontation. Even though they are not, I still call them BDSM Wolfen.
    Which one is the green one? I pretty much painted all of them the same way:
    - Skin: PaleSand shaded with MediumFlesh highlighted with Ivory
    - Skin v2 (specialists, I think the "pale one" (with the red clothes) uses this too): RakhartFlesh shaded with ReiklandFlesshade highlighted with Ivory
    - Clothes: GreenBrown shaded with StrongToneInk highlighted with Ivory
    - Red Clothes on "Master of Carnage": MephistonRed shaded with StrongToneInk highlighted with MediumFlesh
    - Armor: Black highlighted with DarkSeaGreen, then LightGrey, then Ivory
    - Armor trims, weapons: Gun shaded with DarkToneInk highlighted with Steel
    - Leather parts: some brown (either LeatherBrown or BeastyBrown) shaded with StrongToneInk and DarkToneInk.


    SM can't be converted
    - first it was the rule, that it must remain unconverted
    - it's a snap-fit, monopose model, where the shoulderpad is cast togeter with the body.

    Ää (apparently works )
    Forgot, that it works again.

    Haven't painted anything awesome lately (or ever), but I did finish some armies. Hope you'll like them.

    - Confrontation Vile-Tis army (they were already done, but photo might be somewhat better)

    With a bit of luck (no new models for a while) I'm finished with the Dropfleet.

    And managed to do a repaint on one anime figure too, 2B from Nier Automata.
    I wanted to see how the model looks in warm whites with a white ceramic blade instead of the normal black.

    Man, loving the effect on the PHR fleet, looks superb! Really wish I could find the Dropfleet range out here - fancy me some honking great spaceships.

    Like what you did with the colour swap on 2B, though her hair looks a little flat (could just be the pictures though).

    Wow the rework on 2B is awesome! What paint did you use for the golds?

    thanks for the comments.

    The hair... likely the pic, the colors go from black to VMC-LightGrey (which actually looks like the old CodexGrey, so darker than the name suggests).

    Gold: I used simply GW's Retributor Armor. It's a nice dark shade of gold. No real shading or highlighting there, just what the metallic flakes in the paint + the color behind(white / light brown) the metal give.

    Now it looks like I'll have a few Nier figures
    - 1 Chinese version B2 of the LE Black Box figure
    - the white B2 I painted from e2046
    - a black studio painted B2 from e2046
    - a black studio painted S9 from SquareEnix in october
    And hopefully Square will release A2, Commander and Popola/Devola figures too (not sure if I want to have Adam/Eve).



    also does anyone have good tips on painting filligree easier? Picking them out was painful even though I tried to use a flat brush with very little paint almost like drybrushing it.

    Those fleets look really cool massed up like that. 2B looks wonderful in white. I was going to say the hair was not at the same level as the rest, but you already said that was due to the picture.
