AoS28: Chaos Lord

The Gulliman conversion I've been working on the last week is finished. I entered it in the painting competition today and won!







The model is based on GWs newest plastic Primarch, Robute Gulliman. His head and cape are from FW Mortarion. The shield and loincloth are from the Blightkings. I filed away all the stupid details from Gullimans armour, and moved his legs closer together. 

The paintjob was very quick and experimental. I did it all in two evenings. The armour was painted black, and wet blended with black and grey to give it a little contrast. Then I sponged the edges with dessert yellow, followed by an edgehighlight/stippling with pallid flesh. I glazed everything with the green camoshade.
I think the base turned out really great on this one. I wanted something to really contrast the dark armour on the model. I painted the base in brown and red to get an interesting basecoat. Then I added the orangeish rusty water. This was done by adding a pool of orange shade on the base. While the shade was still wet, I randomly added watered down yellow and let the two colours mix naturally. I added gloss varnish to the orange, to give it a watery look.

  6. I had to re-re-read the post just to make sure I'd read it right. I just couldn't see Robute Gulliman in your Nurglii champion at all the first couple of times. Wow you've made a monstrosity into a great model....that is also monstrous.

  7. A super impressive conversion! It is hard to see that it actually came from the big G at all. Fantastic job on the paint job as well

      The big G model is terrible, but it was actually a quite nice kit to work with. Some cool details among all the ridiculous trims.

      Sorry for the extremely late reply. I must have missed your comment.
      The weapon is a mix of several kits. The handle is a plastic rod, he metal balls are from the flagellant kit, as you say, and the chain is small jewlers chain. I think I bought the chain from greenstuffworld.

    1. Thanks :)
      This one, and a lot of the other skulls I use are from the old Tomb Kings horses. but they're out of production and quite expensive, so I've tried copying a few skulls in greenstuff. I've also tried sculpting a few animal skulls recently.

  10. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
