Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer on my last 4 Nurgle #BloodBowl players. Just the tar bases, gloss and blood FX.
These final little things have a habit of killing momentum stone dead. As it has also deviated from the Genestealer Aberrants it feels like I have no current motivation for them either.
Realistically though I've usually had a post-Christmas malaise long before this. The Tyranid VSG put paid to that though and all this progress had kept me motivated.
Despite completing the Adeptus Titanicus Cerastus Lancer I felt like I needed another win, but I think in pushing these I may have failed to get the best out of the skintones.
This purple fella, is OK, I did want a much brighter purple than my other attempts, but in so doing I've lost some depth and it is much more cartoony and less realistic.
The pus filled buboes are pretty good and although it's not a complete disappointment it wasn't quite what I was hoping for.
Now, the turquoise boy. I love the colour against the orange, it works so well but again I don't think I've captured 'skin' particularly well, even if that skin is supposed to be diseased and chaotic.
I was hoping for more realism in these but I feel I've gone more cartoon, or not particularly well defined in place.s
Now this guy was supposed to be like one of those peat bog bodies, but I think the highlight on the skin has brought a little too much warmth to him and he looks almost healthy.
I added a blob of tar to his hand as well. I'd seen some similar black gunk based models recently with dripping tar blobs. It as the old UHU, black ink and invisible thread trick. That would have looked amazing but I fear, given how Blood Bowl plays they would be vulnerable to damage.
I think the Pestigor is the one I'm most happy with. I still think the green is a little one dimensional in places, but the raw edges bring it back a bit.
The face in particular is a huge improvement on the other Pestigor and despite some elements being less than expected he is one of my favourites in the team.
