    Red face to begin anew...

    Hi, let me start off with this; it´s been, over 10 years since I last did a mini. And i can´t say that I was a good painter.
    And it´s been alot of changes in life to finally come back to this hobby.

    I´ve always been looking on your works, either the real pro´s or the beginners, and it´s a joy to see every time.
    Always looking on tutorials, "how to..." and other peoples/artist work makes you wanna go back and rediscover all the fun, pain and headaces that this hobby can give you. Hopefully, I will learn alot ( I allready do, cause the market/world of minis has truly changed) and I hope I can give up some tips/tricks. Or have you throw critics and ideas my way.

    So I deciseded to go with everyones favorite; Nurgle. So for my first mini i bought the "Lord of Plagues" and some basic colors. Just to Catch up again. So while unboxing this freak, I realized… Have the minis change? Are they smaller? Nah, i quess not.

    So, i quess it´s time to make haste, and start preping this little unclean one.
    And I hope to post some progress along the way. I will see if i can find some old pics on the web of my old work. And hopefully learn from the older ones. Take care!

    welcome back to the hobby and nice job on the Nurgle dude. I really like the rust effect you have on the ax and armor bits (I still struggle with that)

    Thank you ekipage! Im not quite happy with it. Lack some colors and my order has been delayed but rust is easy. Look at references like old cars, industrial equipment etc. I think the rust on the helmet makes it look like leather. So gonna fix that!

    But still Thank you. Looken at your work and it is awsome!

    Looking nice & nurgly. Especially for a 10 year hiatus. The pale skin with the purple bruising is very effective.

    Some really nice work going on in this thread, I especially like the job you did on that lord of plagues.

    You don't have to go green, you can paint them a yellowish tone, red, purple, etc...whatever you feel like for the plaquebearers.

    I like the variations of skin tones on those fellas! Any pics of the front of them?

    The bruising and colour nuances on your plaguebearers is awesome. It works well as blood pooling on their undead bodies. I also really like the intestines. Your take on rust is also well done. I’m not normally a fan of Ryza rust but you’ve made it work by achieving a good degree of tonal variation rather than just a big glow in the dark almost lump of orange. I’m not sure, however that ferrous metal that would rust like that would also have overt verdigris as well. I like the fact you haven’t settled on a plain base. Adding a few broken pieces of cork or stone in different sizes will help avoid the look of a couple of artificially uniform pieces stacked on top of each other. Also work that same amount of tonal variation into the base.

    A 10 year hiatus, eh? I'd love to see some of your work back then, because sir, you haven't missed a beat. Those are awesome, and I think I need a set, but the ones I've seen doesn't have the bellringer dude.....

    Great work.
