So I ended up canning that idea, and I painted one up in nurgle colours. I've cropped image together on my paint program so it's easier to fit in. The basecoat was done with Castellan Green, which did end up making it far darker than I imagined, and turned out quite nicely to be honest. I worked it up to a Warboss Green highlight, but then reverted to highlighting up to a bright white after a heavy wash of Athonian Camoshade. My basecoat brush and detail brush are all worn and flayed so I think it could've been better if my Kolinsky was delivered beforehand, but it's supposed to arrive near the end of the month or so, so oh well, maybe next time my lines will be more neat.



The brown looks especially good on the cape and gloves, and I think it was the right choice to go as high as you did on the white highlights. Maybe go a little higher on the fur on the back, though? Or maybe make the white highlights more even. All in all, it's very nice.

I'd love to get into Mordheim at some point myself, but sadly I have no idea where to start! The GW in London's big mall White Oaks is actually pretty busy and active, you should take a drive down there sometime if you want to. They've got some GORGEOUS display pieces, even those old gigantic space marines that were put out, and the overly expensive forge world one. It's where I get all of my supplies since it's roughly a 20 minute drive from my house.

GW no longer prints the mordheim rule book but you can find it online and the rules are super simple compared to regular fantasy. It is a great game to play if you like customizing models too as it adds a lot of fun to the game especially in campaigns. I will definitely head out there for a little trip to check it out and probably leave with no money lol.
Post more pics so i can feel bad about my inadequate painting skills

Funny you should ask that I post more miniatures now, as I had just finished up my SM Captain last week and put some finishing touches to make him look pretty decent as of late. I'll get you some pictures in the next post! Mind you he's not of any chapter I know off the top of my head, just felt like making my own scheme.
