Ace as usual, when is the FW unclean one coming along?

Dagnabit, I didn't know you were this far with your nurgly host
All I have to say is "Yuck!", which is the greatest compliment any Nurgle player can receive

Thanks for the positive comments lads .
I have painted vindicator in the mean time, but lack of camera means that I will be posting it sometime next week.
In other news: I've decided to make another big FW order including the big bad boy, the greater unclean one and at least one blight drone. I'll be adding a medusa as well for some much needed long range fire power and it's anti tank ability, plus it's a nice model in it's own right. I'll probably add some more artillery later on since I'm still lacking in the heavy support category.
I'm also considering getting either the nurgle or khorne daemon prince, the nurgle or deathguard dreadnought, a hellblade or very maybe a carmine dragon. Curse you Forgeworld for making so many awesome models. Any advice on this choice will be much appreciated
I finally got my hands on a camera again, so I can show you my vindicator in all it's rotting glory.
In other news, my forgeworld order has been placed and I've gotten the following:
Greater unclean one (the big one )
2 Blight drones
Medusa with renegade crew
I have the week off next week so hopefully they'll get here soon so I can start working on them.
Smaller update. I've finished the two remaining heavy weapon teams and gave the first one the new skin colour. I now have three chemical mortar teams at the ready.
I had to adjust the contrast in Photoshop to make them more visible, but you'll get the gist of it with these pictures. The mortars look more worn in reality and the colours are a bit more saturated.
Hopefully I'll get some work done on the 2 remaining 10 man squads soon so that I can finish that part of the army. When those are done I'll make a shot of the army so far.
Chemical-mortars??? I don't know what part of combining those two words I like so much, but it makes me go "yesssss". I mean...that just makes the zombie crew even more appropriate.
Chemical-weapons...hmmmm. Might have to borrow that notion for my Boogeymen
The Vindicator looks great too. Like what you did with the Demolisher cannon, like it puked the shell out.
Good stuff, Fawful.
I've gotten some work done in the mean time. I finished another 10 guards men and received my Forgeworld order. I've already built quite a few models from that so I'd say check out the pictures.
These are the 10 additional guardsmen I finished together with the original 10. I changed my mind on the skin colour (again) and added a light badab black wash to make all the colours fit in better. I also added markings to I (and my opponents) can see which squad they belong to.
I build a medusa, not much more to say about that.
I also decided that adding a lascannon to the company command squad might be a good idea, so I build this. I've used the cadian Heavy weapon team since I still had those laying around. The torsos are from the renegade enforcers fw kit.
And of course I made a couple of real enforcers, the two on the right in this picture. The other three guys are the artillery crew that will be serving on the medusa.
And the best for last:
The forgeword great unclean one. This is work in progress of course but it is a fantastic figure to paint. All the little details make it quite daunting though since there are so many disease ridden spots on the model. I'm trying to use a fairly restricted colour scheme to prevent a carnival of colours on the model. I think I'll stick to browns, yellows and some reds for the wounds and keep the 'regular' skin in white colours, not entirely sure though.
To top it all off, I also managed to get some more daemons on the cheap including epidemius, plague bearers and nurglings. Expect to see those soonish.
Update time. Finished the great unclean one and the medusa and spent some time rebasing the daemons I bought. I also found some time to build the first blight drone. It came together rather easily, the only problem is the base. It comes with a 'flying' pole but the hole doesn't really fit with the end of it. As such I had to drill out the pole, but I think I ended up cutting to much rod away so it's a bit unstable right now. I'll have to think up some solution for that before it falls over and shatters.
This is the box with an old greater unclean one and quite a few nurglings. They came on 8 bases, but I'm not sure if I'm going to use them all as swarms. A few of them might end up inside vehicles or as a base filler. We'll see when I get there.
This is the blight drone, the plague marine next to it is to show off the scale.
Now unto the good stuff.
This is the finished Medusa, the freehands on the side boards (don't know what the official term is) don't really show up. I tried out some weathering powders on the tracks and the mortar itself. The results are quite good so I might end up using it on more stuff. I might even give my necron army a good coat of the stuff but that is a different story.
And the big man himself, the great unclean one from forgeworld. I wanted to keep him in line with my plague marines and as such I avoided using any greens on the model (the tentacle being the only exception). This is a very fun model to paint and all the little details really make it come alive. The nurgling playing with a part of the gut coming out from his belly is a good example of this. Pictures really don't do this model justice.
I kept the skin colour as close to white as possible, without it feeling to clean. the wounds are painted with a brown basecoat, orange highlights and some parchment colour skin drybrushes to make it look like it's decaying and somewhat healing at the time. The guts are a more traditional red and had the same kind of highlights applied as the regular wounds to make them tie in with the rest of the model. I finished the wounds by adding 'ard coat (glosh varnish).
The sword was done with a tin bitz basecoat which was then 'dirtied' by adding browns and oranges to it. I finished it by adding some green and metallic weathering powders.
The above picture is with flash turned on, this one with the flash off. In reality it looks closer to the one without flash, but the one above shows more of the details. The plague marine is there to show off how big this blob of decaying flesh really is.
Looks lovely but kind of hard to tell with the flash. Could you take some pics in daylight?
I think you had a really great thing going with the purple parts but they're kind of hard to see, even if I can tell that you've highlighted up to red in some areas. :-)
Have you managed to find a base for him yet? I got one for my big gribbly from Dragonforge IIRC...
Great job, and great plog. Keep it up!

MD: You got a christmas gift?
House: Yeah, 'cause I worship Santa. Or wait, is that Satan? I always get them mixed up.
I will try to take some more pictures tomorrow, if I can get home early enough. Daylight does result in better pictures . I originally bought the honoured imperium set and was going to use the broken aquila that comes with that, but it might be a little to large. It also came with the valkyrie base so I might just whip up some pools with playing nurglings in it, could be a nice little side project.
Man the finished model looks more putrid and disgusting then the unfinished one! Nice work
Update time. I finally have a camera again so I can show off what I've been up to the last few weeks. I haven't painted a whole bunch since I have been quite busy with school and work. Either way, I managed to finish a couple of models.
First of are the two priests of Nurgle, I had tons of problems getting these undercoated since the paint wouldn't stick even after washing them three times. So I resorted to using matt varnish on those spots and painting them black, works like a charm so if you ever run across this issue that may be a solution.
These were hard to photograph so I upped the contrast on the image of their front since they came out fairly dark.
I have been working on the old great unclean one as well, this is a work in progress shot. It will probably end up comparable to the greatest unclean one.
Also finished the first set of plaguebearers. I started out with the same base colour and added a different wash to each of them. As such they look similar in scheme but still somewhat different. I will probably paint the next five in a dark brown or red base so I could use them as two squads of five.
I also picked up the plastic Nurgle lord, I'm going to use him as the leader of my mutants.
Oh man, really nice work with your models here, expecially the Great Unclean one. Will be looking forward to future projects.

Man liking the looks of these more and more!
The old school unclean one has a certain charm to it sort of a 'how about a hug!' in a twisted sort of way
Nice stuff Fawful, I followed the link in your sig and it's looking really nice. the GUO and the priests particularly look fantastic I'm not sure I'd have the courage to take on something like the GUO myself.
Anyway, I'm subbed to the thread and looking forward to more.

Brimstone. Gone but not forgotten.
And I've finally taken the time to do some more painting and of course I have pictures to proof it. First in line is The herald of nurgle whose name I constantly forget.
He was quite interesting to paint due to the many nurglings on the model. I think it came out fairly well. I tried to keep the colours complementary for the nurglings, the washes helped a fair bit here since it gives the same sheen to everything.
