So we've all seen the pix, we drool at them, and some of us (one of us) are.am.is? whacked enough to spend the bucks and get one.
Now I have to paint this puppy (and buy the rest of my Nurgly crew to boot). The question? Oh, yeah, the question: apart from the one example painted by Mark Bedford that FW/GW has on their website, has anyone else seen one of these models painted? And are there pictures up anywhere on the web?
FWIW, I also paint anatomical models for personal injury lawyers, so I am confident I can produce a suitably disgusting belly, back, pustules & buboes, but I'd like to get some guidance on producing a suitably slimy buccal cavity. Any idea, resources, et c. will be appreciated, and I may even cast a nurgly spell your way. Then again, maybe you would prefer that I refrain from so blessing you. No matter, Father Nurgle loves you anyway and I will be thankful as well as infective :x
I haven't seen any painted pics of this thing other than the one you metioned. I suggest that you work with inks and various rotten browns etc. When something begins to decay it will change into a huge variety of putrid colours and shades as the various bateria, moulds and fungus get to work on the corpse.
With this in mind you should make sure that you use a wide variety on colours. Drybrush, ink, drybrush and ink again etc. Always trying to use a variety of colours. Inks work great on Nurgle's minions and will help to subtlely blend the colours you are using together.
cyber, I have three or four well painted images of the F.W. G.U.O. on my old hard-drive. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble accessing it at this time. With any luck, I'll have it up and running by the end of next week, at which time, I'll post the painted images here for you.
Let me know if you need any other images of 40K models. I've got thousands of them.

I have this beast but I haven't started painting him yet. I am going to start with a base coat or 2 with an airbrush and then use inks and glazes to get much of the details in.
There are so many ways you can go with him. Dark purple blacks, reds over a grey base, purple and flesh mixed together and glazed... I will definitely post pictures as I paint him but I probably won't start for another week or so...
Good luck and please share your progress.

Colour scheme from cool mimi or not website. This is NOT my work, just thought I would help you with the visual effects;

To make them intestials really slimy and worthy of the good old Papa (no not you Karmoon, I'm talking about Nurgle) you should use layers of Gloss Varnish.
First you paint the base colours you want, then a layer of Gloss, then next layer of really thin paint ( a wash really). Mix blue, red and green layers -each of them with a layer of gloss in between.
Then you can always add some really low-quality glue as slime-strings after the model has been finished and sealed. Let it dry for a moment then use a stick of some sort to pull strings of it from one side of the wound to the other.
I'll soon get some WIP-pics up on one of my Nurgle Dreads so you can see what I mean.
Good luck with the behemoth, says I with no envy in my voice at all...seriously....who'd want one of these guys. Bah! The thought never even crushed my mind.
Sorry about that, Kuffy. Duly noted.
You can also use 'realistic water' to add additional depth, once the model is painted. It dries clear and has the appearance (as the name suggested), of water. The consistency is like honey, which enable a generous amount to remain where it was placed. Of course, it runs slightly, but for Nurgle, this usually is a good thing. I use it to fill exploded pustules and the likes. The end product results in something of a ooze or slime effect that adopts the paint color underneath it.
'Realistic water' runs around $15.00 at your local hobby shop. You can also purchase the stuff on ebay.
