Nurgle, Nurgle, All Hail tiny Nurgle...

Painting on holiday means just one thing, Warmaster! This time it's the turn of some Chaos Daemons that I bought with the intention of using as quick-to-paint stand ins for Chaos Marauders in my Mortal Chaos army. It turns out that they are quick to do, though I'm not sure my scheme quite does the miniatures justice as they're really nice sculpts with lots of fun detail, much of which I've largely ignored. Anyway, here's the test strip lurking amongst a pile of dead beetles that I found in the garden today.

Purely for my own reference, the speed-paint scheme went like this:
  1. Spray Chaos Black
  2. Paint everything Coat d'arms Olive with a massive brush
  3. Sword Chainmail
  4. Red bits Blood Red
  5. Horn Kommando Khaki
  6. Base Graveyard Earth
  7. Wash everything Devlan Mud
  8. Wash swords Ogryn Flesh
  9. Highlight horn Kommando Khaki then Bleached Bone
  10. Highlight flesh Olive + Camo Green
  11. Eyes white
  12. Boils etc Rotting flesh
Really quick and, I think, pretty effective. Some of GW's very bright static grass should bring them out a little more, I'll post pics of the unit once they're based to see how this works out.


  1. Despite these being completed quickly, the attention to detail is very impressive. Painting the eyes, the mud wash on the swords - super stuff. I like 'em. I also like the dead beetles - will you be keeping those?

  2. I'm already annoyed with myself for ditching the beetles, there are so many uses for such things...
