tutorial – White scars gone bad, white nurgle theme

apr 24, 14 tutorial – White scars gone bad, white nurgle theme


I really like how Tom Adriany’s daemons look (Scheme by Geert Cleynen), so i asked him for the scheme, changed it to fit Chaos Space Marines.

I love the raptor kit, so I chose one of these models to test my version of the scheme on.

It sure took a lot longer than I thought it would take to complete, but I’m very happy with the result.

Not all pictures are of a great quality but I cleverly included the used paintcolour in the picture. (You can find transition charts on the web to find the new names of some of the old paints I’ve used)

STEP 1 : assembly and basecoat spraycan black

STEP 2 : astronomicon grey, leaving the deepest parts of the model  and the soon to be metal parts black

STEP 3 : Boltgun metal applied to weapons and various other “metal” parts in the armour and jetpack

STEP 10 : Repaint the “white” parts with Skull White, staying away from edges and parts that don’t catch the light, like a applying a broad highlight

STEP 11 : Scorched Brown on the spots where you’d like to have the rust effect. Ogryn Flesh on all “white” parts to dull it somehow

STEP 15 :  Tune the rust down using Agrax Earthshade on the rustspots situated on the “white” and Ogryn flesh for the rust on the “metal”. Because I want the rust effect to be less on the armour compared to the metal parts. Let dry.
