Blood Bowl - Nurgle Team skintones

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer Nurgle Blood Bowl team members. With disadvantage of having so many projects on the go that I can fall back on when I get stuck is what happens when you get stuck on the majority of them? Well you grasp onto that one project that is keeping you afloat - and that's these shambling bags of pus. This guy was supposed to be an exploration in yellow skin, but I ended up with a raw and painful looking mass of flesh instead.

I'm OK with that though. It's not what I intended but the result is pretty cool.

This Nurgle green guy is less successful. Granted the red fleshy bits and rawness is there again but the green is just boring.

Luckily this isn't putting me off, I'm seeing it more as a challenge, an opportunity to play around and get a green skintone I'm happy with.

With all the other projects so unappealing it's great to have something to look forward to.


  1. The first one looks like something Hannibal Lecter would leave hanging upside down from the bars of his cell. The second one doesn't look quite finished but its all good mate.

    1. Totally agree. It was confusing how I could get it right first time with the first one but really struggled with the 2nd. I think I've got it much better in the end, the gap in effect/finish is greatly reduced. I'm just struggling now to take pictures of them, can't seem to focus properly. I've a new phone coming next week though so I may be able to take better pictures.

    1. Thanks Mike. Sorry to hear about your Indomitus problems. Maybe GW will fix it and and make up for it in the end.
