Old School here with my next entry for the DFG Painting League; my Nurgle Vindicator! This vindicator was something I converted two years ago and while it has a couple little modeling flaws, it has always been close to my heart. Let's take a look at a few photos of this model ...
Before we get too far, I want to let you know that this model is a re-paint. Yes that's right. I was very new to painting when I converted this and was scared to touch it. With a few e-mails, it ended up in the hands of Goat Boy of BoLS fame, where it received it's first paintjob as seen in this photo:
With that being said, I busted out the airbrush and with a couple fell strokes, primed the model with Vallejo Model Air's Olive Drab.
LBursley Death Guard tut, I then sprayed the model from a 45 degree angle from above with Plague Brown from Game Color. I then followed that up with a few sprays of Game Color Dead Flesh from directly above the model. This is where I broke away from the Bursley Method (though I do recommend it, as it is amazing).
In the meantime, I sprayed the raised areas of the possessed boils (all over the tank) with some tentacle pink and then washed that with Baal Red, making sure to let a little run over so it looked like the flesh was Incorporated into the hull around it.
All in all, I am very happy with how it came out, especially with the re-paint, though I must admit, it is time for a better model camera. The hull is a Phlegm green that gets darker as you move to the bottom of the tank and there are some gradients that I don't think translated well.
Despite that, I hope you all enjoy it almost as much as I do. I had a lot of fun converting this a couple years ago, I have had some fun playing it and I had some serious fun and learned some real lessons while painting it at long last.
This is now my second Kill Point for the League this week, putting me ahead of schedule!
Feedback is always welcome, so please let me know what you think of Vomica, the Possessed Nurgle Vindicator!
