i originaly posted this in the chaos forum but someone said i would get better results if i posted it here. so here it is:
hi, i am new to playing warhammer 40k and have chosen to build a nurgle chaos army. i was having a hard time deciding how i wanted to paint my models, until i found this on some website. so i was wondering if someone could help me out by telling me which paints were used in painting this model. that way i may begin painting my forces. thanks in advance for any help!
camo green for the basecoat of the cloth with maybe commando kaki or rotting flesh mixed in for highlights and then shadow grey as a base coat with fortress gray, codex grey as highlights,
thats going to be difficult for an inexperienced painter, but i must say, the end result is supurb
"This sure ain't no pansy Eldar Armor, Son"
185th Cadian Armored Div.
"One Shot, One Kill"
Western Border Patrol of Athel Loren
i think on the armor you could drybrush codex grey onto a black undercoat to achieve a similar effect. i'm not a 100% sure if this would work so i suggest you try it on a test model first. also i thing the green used here is catachan green. as for the chipping effect, i can give you a link to a site that shows how to do this.
i use the chiping effect often on my marines.
hope this helps

thank you for the info, it helps a lot!
Drybrushing will definitely not yield those effects. Drybrushing tends to leave a rough uneven texture where you use it. Wet blending is more likely the technique used here...
As for colors the artist may have also used Vallejo Model colors that come in numerous variations of a shade of color... My suggestion is if you know who did the work to e-mail them directly and find out what colors they used... I would be willing to guess that they probably used numerous different colors or at the very least sever different ratios of mixed colors to achieve such a smooth transition...

Yea, the effect that is used by Cyril on this mini is done with either layering or blending. Both techniques are difficult at first, but become easy with practice.
