The Plague Hulk Painted


This is probably it. My largely finished Plague Hulk. As far as I know, there are no rules for this (anyone know) but I guess one can play it as a Soul Grinder.

I undercoated this by spraying with Vallejo olive green. I then filled in any gaps with a diluted mixture of khaki and dark green. I kept varying the mixture to give different colour blands. I then painted 'internal' detail in a burnt umbar (Citadel scorched brown) and metals in Citadel Tin Bitz. I worked the green up through multiple layers ending in lemon (Citadel Badmoon Yellow), the brown up with layers of dilute bright red (Revel Ferrari red) and the metals with Citadel Shining Gold. .
I then dumped rust pigments all over the model using a white spirit medium. After it dried I brushed off the excess then wiped upper surfaced with a damp cloth so that the pustules (etc) showed through.

I seled in the pigment with Vallejo acrylic satin varnish ( a nice 'soft' varnish that doesn't destroy the paint detail, as Citadel varnishes do) and then used Citadel Ard Coat to highlight a few key areas, such as the eye.

It took about five hours. so it was not exactly a fine art job, but I hope you like it.

Actually, something about the smell interested the rabbit, so he urinated on it, and my camera,

  1. I'm pretty sure there are rules for it in IA7.

  2. We should get a ruleset for that rabbit while at it.

    The Plague Hulk looks absolutely brilliant. That was really, really fast. Nice work.

  3. I'd say. Bad Rabbit! But being a demon engine of Nurgle it is probably fitting.
    The camera on the other hand. Boo! No interrupting the feed of pictures Bunny Foo Foo. Or would that be Bunny Pee Pee?

  4. Now it's a daemon engine of Nurgle, complete with smell!

  5. I think you did a great paintjob regardless of what the bunny thinks.

    Found the rules. They were in FW's Apocolypse II.

    Rabbit pie is definitely looking attractive.

    The bunny has no artistic appreciation.
