How to Paint the Servants of Nurgle: Death Guard

1. First prime your models in a black undercoat, or if you don’t have the $8 (about €12) paint them black manually (although I find the primer is more feasible and works much better).

2. After your black undercoat, apply a layer of catachan green over all the armour. After this paint the trim boltgun metal or chainmail (they both achieve the same effect).

3. Details on the model (boils, pus sacs, or ooze) can be painted either bleached bone or rotting flesh.

4. The main part of the armour (not the trim) will now need to be drybrushed in bleached bone. It looks better on the shoulderpads if this is done in a circular motion.

5. The pus sacs, etc. now need to be painted all over in scab red, leaving bleached bone in the recesses.

6. Any metal parts of guns, or special weapons now are drybrushed with brazen brass. Also, any metal parts of the trim or guns that are too shiny will now be inked in black ink (this step is not necessary if the metal parts were appropriately drybrushed).

7. The pus sacs, etc. are finished off with a drybrush of rotting flesh or bleached bone.

8. To complete the model, paint the base all over in scorched brown. Add rocks from packages (or even off the street) to the base. Patch areas of the base with random chunks of static grass.
