I found a “lost post” from just before my shoulder surgery back in April, 2015. I needed some plague bearers just in case I needed to summon them in a game. I’ll post a full tutorial when I work on the next batch of plague bearers, this is just a quick how-to. I have some older metal models that I need to paint as well.
I started with multiple thin coat of Vallejo Grey Airbrush Primer.
The flesh was a simple 3 step process (airbrush 1 & 2, brush wash 3):
- Basecoat – VMA US Dark Green 71016
- Zenithal Highlight – 7:5:2 VGA Dead Flesh 72.735, VGA Moon Yellow 72.705, Distilled Water
- Wash 3:1 – Citadel Athonian Camoshade: Distilled Water
I sprayed a thin basecoat on the Plagueswords, Instruments, Banners, etc. with Daler Rowney FW Ink (FW for short) Burnt Umber 223
After this I picked up a brush and hit all the nails, broken bones and teeth with VGA bonewhite 72.734
Then I brushed on a coat of Squid Pink 72.713 on the guts, tongues and about half of the exposed wounds.
Once it dried I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson heavily on all the wounds, and Citadel Agrax Earthshade on the nails and teeth.
One final touch was VGC Orange Fire on the pustules.
