This is one of my latest figures. I will probably use him in my 40k Nurgle army (haven't fully decided yet). I talked a bit about how he was painted in the painting contest above - but to recap here are the paint summeries:
The armor was painted by starting with a cayman green basecoat, this was given a brown ink wash. At this point I started striation lines by first going with cayman green, then camo green, camo green/dead flesh, and finally dead flesh.
Gold started with brassy brass, followed by a brown ink wash, then the darker gold, followed by a purple ink glaze, and finally highlights were picked out with the lighter gold.
Flesh spikes are pale flesh, a mix of purple and flesh ink wash, highlighted with pale flesh and a light grey, and finally small veins were painted on with purple ink.
Here are several more views and close ups of various parts of the model. I took him to Games Day LA but unfortunately he didn't place. Nothing humbles you more than Games Day!
As per usual - comments, suggestions, critiques, etc. always welcome. I look forward to hearing from you. Here are the pics:

Excellent work! The fungus like exhaust vents are brilliant.
I particularly like the way how you painted the brass parts, the shading looks very realistic.
The old static looking metal chaos terminators are perfect for this kind of slow rotting zombie style terminator, i've seen deathguard terminators made out of the new plastic terminators and they're way to animated. I like the static look you've gone for.
Its beautifully painted, but i can see why it didn't place at GD, because it lacks that creative spin. That ingenius conversion or effect that drops your jaw on the floor. But like i said its beautifully painted.
I don't like the new termies for some reasons, I always look at Terminators as resting before they began to fight, in continuous action.Originally Posted by Gareth
Anys, I like the armor texture the most, that by far looked the hardest and most taxing of paint jobs. the streaks look awesome.
Yeah there are probably several reasons it didn't place at Games Day. While I think there are areas of the figure where I believe I have painted my best the overall figure falls very flat - especially compared to some of the other competition. It probably didn't help that I put him together about 2 weeks ago and painted him up last week. I had too many other things going on and I kept pushing him further and further behind. My fault really.Originally Posted by GarethThe fleshy tubes were made with greenstuff. I pre-drilled holes along where the trophy racks would go and inserted paperclip pins. Then I rolled some green stuff out into a fairly thin "snake". I then cut off small links of it and inserted them onto the pins. Finally with the sculpting tool I shaped the topes into "openings" and added small holes, etc. I then pressed the arms into place to make sure they would fit properly.Originally Posted by Capt. Phil
The is the first time I tried this - it didn't go quite as planned. If I were to do it again I would probably do less of them and vary the length.
Thanks again for the comments. Keep 'em coming!
I like it except that you painted some parts RED! I'd like if it had a more rotten look or something.. but not red.
Things go better with Petter

Eh - not quite following you on this one. I am guessing that you just don't like the color red? What specifically were you addressing when you talk of having more of a rotten look - the red areas - the model as a whole?Originally Posted by Kills
It would definitely be more helpful if you were more specific. Speficically what would you suggest as far as making something look more rotten?
Thanks in advance!
