Painting Minis with Nurgle Style: Next Level Tutorial

To start the Nurgle themed base, mix Viking Blue, Alien Purple, and Wolf Grey by the Army Painter together in the airbrush. Spray the mixture across the rocks of the base. Add in Mummy Robes by Army Painter to create a lighter grey and spray across the edges as a highlight. Use the airbrush to blend in the transitions up to almost pure Mummy Robes.

Next, use a dry brush to apply Mummy Robes across the base and rocks to bring out all the peaks. This will bring out even more contrast.

Mix Jungle Green and Viking Blue by Army Painter in the airbrush again and spray them into the holes to create a Nurgle-green glow. Add more Jungle Green and continue to build up the greens. This will take a few thin coats to build up the final green glow. Finally, add a little yellow to the green to create a highlight on the top.

Let the airbrush work dry and work on the base details such as maggots and skulls.

With some water and flow improver mixed with Jungle Green, glaze the cracks to create the illusion of glowing green. Go over this with a few passes until it’s as green as you desire.

Finally, wash parts of the base, such as the skull and rocks, with Strong Tone by Army Painter. For a final slime effect, apply some Realistic Water by Secret Weapon Miniatures. Apply this in two to three thin coats, allowing each coat to dry completely before applying any more.

There it is, an easy way to get a sick Nurgle-style base with glowing slime. To pick up the Plague Prince for yourself, and to see other fantastic models, check out Spellcrow. To see the entire process, be sure to check out the video below!
