Like a lot of people I suppose, I appreciate when I can get more than I expected for my money. My girls just call me tight fisted but I like to think I am just being economical with my money. I suspect I am not alone in making a box of Nurglings go that little bit further by putting less on each base.
I managed to get a box of Nurglings that were supposed to fill three bases (by adding any spare Nurglings from the sprues of other sets I had etc) to fill six bases.
Chuffed was me…
It does mean I have twice as many to paint up now so not all a big win. The first base I painted up was done as a one off. This was to see if I can get a quick and easy method together that I can then use on the remainder of the army.
It needs to be simple, quick and be a close match the Dragon Rampant army that makes up the other half of this force. I spent too much time on extra washes and base colour variation when I painted that army. I know I can get the same, or a similar effect, with 2 or 3 less parts to the process.
Nurglings done, and in half the time it took to do the older process. Not a bad match and a slightly cleaner finish too (not that a Nurgle army wants to be clean…)
Now to replicate that 5 more times for the bases of Nurglings. Only then will I have to start on the huge pile of Nurgle that seems to be building up at the back of the shed…
