I’m a bit of a sucker for picking up a random paint pot when I enter a GW store, on most occasions I don’t even need that particular paint but I’ve found buying my paints this way reduces the financial pain when I get a new model as I’ll have most of the colours I need.
I picked up a Nurgle’s Rot technical paint using the method above and left it sitting with my other paints, unopened and unloved, until recently that is. As I’ve now started painting up my Death Guard – who are big fans of Nurgle – I’ve found that I’ve been using Nurgles Rot on every model as it adds a nice slimey, puss filled look to all the boils and open wounds the model may have and if you’re favoured by Nurgle that’s a lot of boils.
For my Death Guard models I’ve been using Nurgle’s Rot sparingly as I wanted it look like the layer area between the marine and his armour is full of rot and puss with this being seen as it seeps from the holes in the armour. I wanted this to look subtle and not detract from the rest of the work I’d put into the model.
I used Nurgle’s Rot again on my pox-walker to add a little gooey, wet look to boils and sores on the body. Again I only added a little to the model.
All in all I’ve found Nurgle’s Rot to be a great technical paint for adding a diseased look to your model. I suspect that it’s best to use this in moderation otherwise the model may end up looking like a wet mess!
