Plague Crawler complete

After painting the rank and file plague marines, I decided to switch to one of the larger models, the plague crawler

I used the same method as for the plague marines, but appied it to larger surfaces. Mixing the two contrast paints (Snakebite Leather and Militarum Green) created a mottled finish that I think suits the model.

The model looks quite difference from the side or back:

This is a theme across the plague marine range, the vehicles are essentially armour plates bolted over a fleshy mass. Ew.

    Nicely done! I think you’re right about the mottled finish, it looks the part! 🙂

    I agree, it came out looking good, and I also like the mottled look. The flesh looks nice too.

    Yeah, it’s a nice effect with the mottling. I’ll keep it in mind as a reference when making the final choices for my own Nurgley DG stuff. 🙂

      I’d be lying if I said it was planned for – I think it’s an effect of semi-mixing two contrast paints and then using them over a larger flat surface area.

    I always use how repulsed I am at a model as a measure of how ‘nurgley’ it’s been painted. Congrats this is as bad as Anne’s normal fare! I’d say I like it but that’s not quite the right expression. Perhaps ‘Mings me out’ is closer 😉
