Loopy Paints Unto Others - Dan's Nurgle Daemon Princes

A little while ago, I had the opportunity to paint some Daemon Princes for a buddy in my local gaming group.  I've always wanted to do some of this stuff, so I agreed to take the job and get a few nice hours of something different.

Remember to CLICK to ZOOM!

First is the usual Nurgle dude.  I went with a gray pallor.  It was already primed with a purply red which I quite like for Nurgle.  That pooling blood and fester... I'm finding I like using purple for the shade color and gray for the skin color on these Daeomons who are "far along" in accepting Papa Nurgle's "blessings"

Next is a Nurgly Be'lakor.  He looks rather lean and cut, so I decided he was a bit more "ripe" than the other Daemon.  I went with a more fleshy color, but used Tallarn Sand for the basecoat to give it a sickly tinge.  I also added some red, oozing sores on his body and made the chaos brand on his chest still raging red with infection.  I'd have done some pus oozing from the brand, but I think that might have been difficult for the casual viewer to figure out.

Overall, I was pleased with these.  I liked figuring out the dried blood effect on the swords could be nothing more than some purple which has been rubbed off with my finger or shirt.  I guess I should have figured that out by now, but I don't often go for that look.

I really like the Nurgle's Rot when applied conservatively. It's a really nice effect.

I hope to do more like this in the future because it was good fun.
