Nurgle Daemon Prince

And here is my Daemon Prince. Need to pick up some wings as what good is a DP without em.

Looks great overall. You should pick out the teeth and the eyes though. It's such a large model that the face draws a lot of attention and it looks slightly unfinished.

Damn dude! When did you get so good with the paintbrush?

You've become a much better painter over the last year, and that looks absolutely fantastic.

Can't wait to see the rest of the army.

Great work! I think wings on a daemon prince are a certain requirement. But, I have run some without, and the do make a serious fire magnet!

thx. I agree about the face nick... this is the head that I could not stand, but im living with it. definitely going to be doing some touchup on it. Anton, as far as brush work, this paint scheme requires little to no talent, its all about the washes :)
thx jabber too!

Dasanton said...

I call BS on the "little to no talent" statement. You did a good job on it. I've seen models that were washed that looked like absolute garbage... This is not one of them.

There's no shame in using time-saving techniques if they look good, and in this case, they do!

If you must take some criticism, I'd add some rust or weathering (or blood!) to the sword. It looks too plain, and for it to be such a large part of the model, it could use some sprucing up.

Pedro Kantor said...

Oh I can take the criticism for sure :)
I will definitely be adding some rust on the metal parts, as Im doing the plague hulk now and there is just too much metal on it to not have rust, you got any good recipes for adding rust? was going to google shortly

I really like this stuff:,7532.html

...but it's not cheap. I also have been using colored pastels ground up with a thinned down mix of a light brown to pretty good effect. The micromark stuff really works wonderfully though. I used it on my Van Saar hide-out for adepticon last year.

I have also heard of people using rust that they scrape off of something and just use alcohol as the medium, and that's supposed to work pretty well too.

No matter what method you use, don't use a nice brush!
