There is this idea floating around that painting nurgle is quick and easy. Just slap on some greenstuff, glob on the greenpaint, and call it a day. In fact, this is one of the things that attracted me to making a death guard army. I thought it would be quick with few models to paint. Little did I know I would spend months struggling to find a colour scheme and painting style I was happy with.
The pictures above and below show the model I have partially painted as a test of this colour scheme. I airbrushed Vallejo Model Air Olive Drab and the dry brushed layers from catachan green up to rotting flesh, line highlighted in places, then washed with vermin brown and devlan mud. I added some battle damage with paint and painted the rust with a stippling technique. I still need to make the eyes glow, paint the flesh and skulls, and paint and flock the base. So this model is definitely a WIP.
Here are some pictures showing my chronological attempts from left to right:
This neon green abomination was painted today too. Horrific. I'm glad I decided to test this scheme out before doing it to a whole squad!

Feedback on the incomplete test model above would be great. Too bright? Too dark? Boring? Sloppy? Crisp? Comments and tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
