WIP Nurgle Daemons

So I am back from my holiday in the states.  I am a little bit heavier and in far worse shape gym wise but otherwise I had a fantastic trip.  1 day in LA, 3 days in NYC and a week in Boston were just what the doctor ordered after a really intense end of term.

Now I have not done much with these since leaving but I realised on my trip that I had not actually posted pictures of my WIP Nurgle Daemons.

I decided to try the Army Painter product and I thought this would be the perfect project for what it claims to be able to do.  Now I had hoped to get the army done for Book Of Grudges but life and work got seriously in the way.

I sprayed the entire army the Army Painter bone colour and then painted all the metal items Red Gore. I then stippled the metal bits orange and cleaned up the skin with bleached bone.  I followed this up with the Army Painter Strong Tone.  Besides stinking and killing a brush (both of which I expected) the stuff worked the charm.  I applied the dip with a brush and waited 20 minutes before cleaning up pooled areas with the tip of a dry brush.

I then waited 24 hours and highlighted the metal bits with Mithreal Silver.  I think the rust has come out perfectly (or it will once I finish detailing and dull spray the whole army down).

Anyway...  Here are the photos....
