Howdy ho guys i am starting a brand new chaos army nurgle of coursebut i have a problem how do you guys paint nurgle figures i saw the guide on GW website but its orange?i wana know how to paint it the green colour thx8Y
I don't know how the 'Eavy Metal team does it, but for a simply Nurgly look trying painting to desired area with a solid coat of a brown you like, then drybrush with say a mix of Dark Angels Green and White (sort of a light green with a pastel feel).

I used wagames foundry paint called plem green. It comes in a set of 3 shades with a dark colour similar to catachan green and 2 lighter shades almost up to knarlock green.
- Black undercoat
- Drybrush gun work with tin bits and then boltgun metal.
- Phlem green (dark shade) on armour.
- Brown/chestnut ink wash (50/50).
- Hilight armour with phlem green mid shade.
- Hilight again with lighter shade then a few flecks of komando khaki on top hilights.
- Ink wash (very weak) of flesh wash.
- chestnut/terracotta for any flesh bits poking through the armour including those fused flesh stringy tendon bits. hilight up to dwarf flesh for these.
- other detail such as eyes, belt pouches to taste.
- final drybrish of silver areas and use brazen brass on some other parts for a bit of metalic variation.

I get some really nice plaguemarines with the following method.
1. black undercoat on armored areas
2. Scorched brown base all over
3. Snot green on trimmings,
4. tin bitz on metallics
5. drybrush surfaces of plate with bestial/snakebite 50/50 mix, drybrush trimmings with camo green lightly.
6. chestnut ink to segments, metallics, face
7. drybrush rotting flesh on trimmings
lightly drybrush plate with khaki kommando, very light... too much makes it look like powder.
8. brown the base, get some brazen brass/tin bits mix on the metallics, and some bleached bone on the horns, bone stuff etc. lightly put some brown ink on the bones...
9. if a face, pale color (you choose) plus fleshwash, make it look dity. lenses on masks, i go with a ruddy yellow and chestnut ink.
use black ink on all hosing, etc.
snot green plus some scorpion green if you want the slimy stuff to pick out a bit, otherwise put a bit of goblin green and after drying, put some chestnut ink on it... works wonders to make it look phlegmy.
If you are a sculpter, green stuff user, you can make some nice boils, pocks on the model, or entrails, for added nurgly-ness.
Thats my way...
Ill see if i get some pics up

I like to use all diffrent colors of green and brown for my Nurgley folks. I used a diffrent one for each of my squads. How I do it:
1) Pick a color of green (or brown) and basecoat the model
2) Water down some brown ink and apply liberally
3) Drybrush a slightly lighter color (or bleached bone) over the entire model
4) Paint any metal parts you want on the armor with brazen brass
5) Paint any nurgle icons with blood red or putrid green
6) Paint guns and backpack black, then heavy drybrush with boltgun metal
7) Pick out details with desired colors
I leave the base up to you, cause that is probably my weakest area of modelling/painting. Another thing that is easy: take a bit of green stuff and smoosh it down in a blob on any given section of armor, smooth it out, then poke a bunch of holes in it with a toothpick. It gives a nice diseased look with minimal effort or skill required. GL 2 ya!
edit: Oh yeah! Check out my deamon prince! Maybe it'll give you some ideas.

Before and painting I put some green stuff on the bellys and some in various other areas like shoulder pads, legs etc. I then use elmers glue to glue patches of sand in random areas. To paint my Nrlge Marines I base coat with Dark Angles Green then dry brush Snot Green. I then wash in Thraka Green and dry brush Scorpion Green and then paint the sanded areas Scorched Brown and then dry brush Bleached Bone. *Note* Each time I dry brush it gets a little bit lighter dry brushing.** After the Bleached Bone I paint the trim in Shinning Gold and put on a wash of Gryphone Seppia. Im going to try and get some pics up there eventually.
Do be sure to check the last posted reply on an older thread, prior to responding. In this case, the thread had been idle for over a year. I'm not even sure if rifle540 still visits these forums. In the future, if a thread had been inactive for more than 60 days, it's best just to let it slumber
