Nurgle Palanquin by Falassion Nurgle Palanquin by Falassion
This model has been hanging around in my brothers room for what seems like forever, I had to do something with it eventually so I made it and painted it as quickly as possible just to get it over and done with. Turns out it wasn't as painful as I was expecting it to be. Also the Nurglings have been a pain in the ass to paint, they were 2nd hand models which had an undercoat of purple or bright green, my army is primarily brown so that took some sorting out, couldn't just blackwash them unfortunately.

Okay, these are awesome. I'm a Nurgle-player, too, and I love your dark colour-scheme! May I ask what colours you mainly use on this army? Everytime I try to paint my models in a dark way they look kinda boring, but yours are just badass! :)

I use a regular light/dark brown for the undercoat, black wash to make sure all the creases and crevices are as dark as possible and then dry brush with rotting flesh, thats the main idea behind the whole armies colour scheme. Some of the models have a dark green undercoat, same method though :)

Also don't be scared to be minimalist in what you do, notice large parts of most of my models are simply a olour washed and drybrushed. Most models have a good texture to them so washing then drybrushing is king! :D

Ah, less is more, hm? I will remember that. I tend to loose myself in all the details, forgetting the whole model itself. Also your method should be a pretty fast way to paint. Will try that. Thanks again! :)

It is fast if you don't include the day or so waiting for the wash to dry :) but then you can always get on with other things whilst that happens!

The palanquin is one of the coolest minis GW ever made. :)

I wonder why it was removed?

If they'd remake some of the old Realms of Chaos-era minis with modern technology and materials I'm sure GW would be able to pick up a lot of money.
But I guess that's a bit too much to hope for. :D

The Lost and the Damned style of model and artwork by John Blanche are what have kept me interested in 40k for so long! :) Even now they still use his art in the new rule book 25yrs on!

Just shows how important he is to the imaging of the Warhammer worlds, both Fantasy and 40K.
