Risi Vortapt, part II, Blight Drones


I've just finished a few more miniatures for my Nurgle Titanicus Legion; the Blight Drones. In my last post I showed the sculpted unpainted miniatures. If you missed the post, you can read it HERE

I painted these guys quite simple and quick. The white is just a few drybrushes of lighter and ligher grey, finished off with a drybrush of white. The shading and weathering were mostly done with AK-interactive technical paints.

I really enjoyed making these, so I'm planning to make a few similar creations.

  2. I love these, Wilhelm, especially the drones.
    The variety in designs adds a lot of character, and they are very cleverly converted/sculpted.

    Good stuff!

    1. Thank you :D

      I was very inspired by the small blight-drones/nurgle flies you've made to your Plaguebone army. Your stuff are a great source of inspiration.

  3. I myself just started Titanicus. I have played a demo game with a single Warhound. I have ordered a pair of Warhounds and a Reaver so far. I plan to convert them to look similar to the old chaos titans with bestial metal heads, tails and strange melee weapons. What do you plan to use your drones as in game?

    1. That sounds really cool!

      I'm not sure how the game will work yet. I haven't looked much at the rules. I might make some simple home-brew rules, as this game will just be with friends.
      Another idea is to use them as regular knights, as knights are the smallest miniatures in the game.

  4. That weathering really stands out on those white metal plates, they look great for such a simple scheme!

      I really enjoy it when I find simple colour combinations and techniques that work well together!

  6. Nice and grubby white, looking like its been around a while - perfect. Much better than the pristine whites that people usually do.

    Whats the technique behind getting it looking dirty? (unless I've missed that in the posts somewhere?)

    1. Thanks a lot!
      The white is mostly drybrushing and stippling. I started off with blue grey, and added more and more white to the mix. Then I added rust and grime. This was mostly oil-based effect-paints from AK Interactive.
