Im painting a nurgle army and have been having trouble with the armor. I painted the armor white and DA green inked it. It looks pretty good, but I want to highlight it. Would scorpian green look good? Also how could I make the armor and stuff look old and dirty? Well thanks for any help.....

I usually go for Snot Green to highlight anything DA green.Originally posted by SotekRocks!@Dec 1 2004, 22:19

depends on the effect you want to achieve. you can highlight DA green with Goblin green, Jade green or even yellow. the latter two give your minis a more "demonic" look (for a lack of a better word)

there are many ways to do this.
you can wash the entire mini in a watered down brown or black ink,
you can paint them grey instead of white,
you can put dirt on with a tooth brush.
you can wash them with a watered down green ink....
you can drybrush soot (with chaosblack or scorched brown)
or do a combination of some of them.
Shut up and play.
Shadow grey with a snot green wash works well. Maybe scar the armor a little bit with your knife. Maybe wash the fig with with with bestial brown and/or tin bitz to make the armor look worn & rusty..etc., etc., ad noseum.
I hear voices...and they don't like you!
Is this Hordes of Chaos or Death Guard?
I would suggest Chestnut Ink mixed with Green Ink, or maybe a drybrush of Catachan Green, then inks.

I just undercoat black, then paint Dark angels green over the armour. then drybrush Goblin green, Bestial brown and then a light drybrush with Scorpion green, looks really cool but needs an ink to give the extra depth. haven't tryed any yet, maybe black??
Drybrush it camo green, that looks really good.
if u want relly swampy armour prime ur models black then paint them with boltgun (no drybrushing!) then ink most of the model /w dark green ink (leave a few patches of boltgun here and there) then wen its dry ink the whole thing brown, then repeat inking green then brown till it looks really swampy
Yello. I found that deathly works with a mix of vermin brown, and fortress gray, at about a 5:1 ratio. Looks something like if you've ever seen LOTR: FOTR (first one) in Lothlorian, the second elven place, it's like so white and muted. Think of a darkly muted bright brown watered down and put on the edges of your armor.

sounds a bit long winded, but trust me, they look just like the 'eavy metal death guard marines, basecoat camo green, lots of brown ink washes, then drybrush goblin green and bleached bone mixed, then drybrush bleached bone, thinned brown ink it again then highlight the bleached bone areas bleached bone then white I found this by accident and they look cool
