WIP – 40K – Nurgle Titan Apocrypha. (the Plague Doctor) part_13

I then highlighted with Vallejo Pale Blue Grey, and gave all the panels and metal an oil-wash of sepia. I left it overnight for the turpentine to fully evaporate.

I used first cotton ear-cleaners, dipped in turpentine to clean the excess… Don’t do that. I had to spend an hour cleaning small fivers out of the legs. I then rolled a small square of absorbent kitchen microfiber cloth (aka Vileda) and fixed it with a wire to a chopstick…

When it all had dried again, I coated it with matt varnish spray… I should have then started working in the organics, but instead I went and begun with the weathering of the panels… because… Well, I like to see the most progress possible, for the least effort, I guess… And if I screw the panel-work with the next steps, I’m too far past the “fix with base-color” stage… sooo… More reason to keep it tidy.

GW’s Nihilakh Oxide and an “Iron-like” paste from DecoArt… I used it as a wash, and somewhat diluted on the steel-like metal-parts.

I lost the one chain with the incense burner I had in place… but didn’t glue. I just realized now, while uploading this pictures… I tried to find it between those floor boards to no avail. First World’ problems… it made me sad. Only four left.

  1. Wow, that’s coming along nicely! I’ve been working flat out lately so haven’t had the chance to keep an eye on this as closely as I’d have liked – you’re really making progress with it (and the results are putting my slow progress to shame! 😉 )

    1. Thank you! I think this has been the longest painting “flare-up” of my life! Also, on vacation…
      I dunno… This Nurgle theme is giving me a lot of confidence, and I feel like I’m making progress, which feels nice in the middle of the forties crysis!
      I’m getting a lot of pleasure from looking at the collection grow… But I’ll soon will have to sell my old stuff so I can keep going, and not drive my missus insane.
      You think a bootleg-pattern titan like this could be sold? I could put another one together for about 50$ with parts to spare… Do you “move” your creations at all?
