Rotigus WIP + GUO clay body sculpt

Postby effullbao » Sat Jan 13, 2018 11:51 pm

Hey crew, been a while since a made a post here. I just bought The new Great Unclean One after work and those who know me know that I love collecting different sculpts. I’m about to finish green stuffing some gaps and other weirdness but here’s Rotigus.

And here he is in a criminal line up. The standard flyer base is a little small for him but he seems to sit nicely on an imperial knight base like my glottkin.

Best part is that, with the leftover bits from this kit and the maggoth lord and some new confidence in sculpting, I’ll be able to make two more Great Unclean Ones. Disgusting.

That’s awesome dude. I have never sculpted much more than hair blobs for my BAngels and some very rough loincloths for my tomb kings, but it seems to me like the nurgs are the way to go for developing those skills.

Nice collection! I'm gonna pick up the new kit eventually but I'm not sure if i want Rotigus or the regular one, he's pretty badass looking. I've got a spoilpox scrivener for now though!

Going to brush on pastels, seal, and dry brush the skin in the next two days.

That's coming out great. How did you do the bruised flesh effect?

I’m airbrushing a mix of cadmium red and violet (think wazdakka red and druchi violet) onto the shaded areas onto the model and I’m going back and drybrushing my skin mix plus yellow and white as I go on later. I’ve crushed some mixed orange brown red pink pastels and sealed them in (not in the above picture). Now I’ve washed the entire model in agrax earth shade. I’m gonna do maybe 2 to 4 dry brushes but I think I’ll be almost done with the skin. Most of this is to ease the harsher transitions on the model, particularly in shaded areas like the gnarlrod holding arm.

Basic model painting convention says not to wash again after highlighting but on a model this big, you really have to make the judgment call as you go, especially in comparison to the rest of your army. That being said, I think this is coming along really well but I don’t have a base prepared for him yet! :(

Oh and Fecus is done.

For a model of that size, why not use an oil wash? That won’t harm your highlights.

Mostly it’s a matter of material familiarity. I’ve been using the same paints I got for school for almost 10 years now so most everything I’ve used is what I already have. The oil wash technique uses mineral spirits which would just add to the list of stuff I don’t have. I’ll keep it in mind for the next big model that I work with.

I also tried to find a toy to use for a GUO body that I saw earlier but no avail. Going the action figure route isn’t good because the prices for those are too high for my taste so I’m gonna order some clay or milliput or whatever tonight.
