Finally I have cracked my Nurgle Lord!!!

It struck me whilst reading the feedback I received on warseer how important it is to embrace the critique of others and try and constantly improve your ideas and technique.
I have a very strong vision for most of my projects, but it's helpful to have an outsiders point of view once in a while. With that in mind I tried one more version of the lords head.
I'm much happier with this than previous ones and I am pretty certain he is now finished!?!
I also got some more accurate colour representation photos.

Nurgle Lord 99% finished on the painting

Nearly done on this bad boy. The Nurglings need some re-working to vary their colours and I have a few details and extra glaze's to do on the lord.
Hopefully get him finished tomorrow and then I will wait for natural light to get some good pics as I'm finding it hard to get the colours looking right in the photos with artificial lights.

The painting begins

After what seems like ages from starting this bad boy I finally got sometime to lay done some colour on him. I'm experimenting in painting in a slightly new way for me. I got some glaze medium to try and I'm trying to paint one area to 99% finished, then I can make minor adjustments once the model is 'complete'.
The skin has only had it's first coat, but the armor is 'finished'.

The rust is done using MIG pigments (The new Flames of War branded pack)

Nurgle Lord finished!!

After what seems like an age, I finally got him finished :D
Although I will be magnetsing the Nurglings to the palanquin so I can sculpt some new ones when my skills improve.

Nurglings (why do I torture myself?)

Inspired by a few peoples work on various forums and blogs I decided to have a go at making my own Nurglings for the palanquin of my Nurgle lord.
These are what I have managed so far, I need to add in more of the little fellas to fill the gaps and give it a nice dense appearance (like a swarm) plus add boils etc.
The faces are maxmini zombie heads.
