well how do u paint nurglies?
You mean fantasy or 40k? Death Guard or Chaos Warrior? Nurgling or Great Unclean One? Please be more specific in requests for help, it is rather hard to help with such an ambigious question.
Basecoat - Chaos Black
Dark Angels green
Dark Angels green mixed with camo green, leaving Dark Angels green in the recesses
Camo Green over this, leaving the 2 previous layers visible
Camo Green mixed with Rotting Flesh, leaving the other colours visible
Pure Rotting flesh highlight, thin line.
Paint any growths/boils and such like this, then add a wash of magenta ink. Soak up any excess with a cloth or another brush so it stains the growth.
Boltgun metal on any metal parts you want, with a light drybrush of brazen brass.
Add chestnut ink to the metal parts to add grime.
comes out sort of like this:
The fleshy growths there are actually liche purple base, liche purple with bleached bone overlay, more bleached bone into the liche purple/bleached bone mix, wash with watered down magenta ink for a fleshy appearance.
The short answer: Any way you want.
To elaborate: I would do some searching - wether it be magazine, internet, etc. and find a variation of a Nurgle theme that you like and emulate that. Or if you have an idea in your head but that to paint and brush and see what happens.
I have painted quite a bit of Nurgle themed stuff. My style has changed somewhat since my first but currently I am liking a striation effect on the armor.
I start with Vallejo Game Color Cayman Green
Apply a Brown Ink Wash
Re-apply Cayman green to the majority of the armor leaving just a hint of the brown ink
apply a thin layer of Vallejo Camoflauge green (watered down to make it transparent) in very fine lines leaving some of the cayman green showing
Apply a thin layer of dead flesh in very small lines - leaving some camoflauge showing.
As for other things - I prefer a brass look to silver so I trim all the pads with brass. Intestines I paint pale flesh and wash with purple and red inks. etc. etc. etc.
Here are some examples:
For plaguebearers and Nurglings I have been experimenting with green and pale flesh patters. Basically start the greens as above and for the flesh areas start with a dwarf or elf flesh, apply a flesh wash, and highlight up to a pale flesh or pale flesh and white mix.
I have been experimenting with making it look patchy by starting the base colors in a random blotchy pattern and overlapping the colors on the highlights to blend them all together. For the most part I am very happy with this effect.
