"The other week I had my unpainted Epidemius conversion to show off, well, now this week he's back in his fully painted glory! I'm really happy with how he turned out and I'll go over a bit of how I painted him as well as some issues that turned out to be great opportunities!

This guy has been quite the journey to complete. After fully finishing the conversion of the model, I went ahead and primed him to start painting. Everything was going fine until I primed the Nurglings that hold him up and disaster struck! The primer fuzzed plus it went on too thick in spots and basically ruined the model. Normally I could just strip the paint off, but I was out of Simple Green and right now is not a great time to find some spare cleaning supplies out at the store. After debating a few options, which included just trying to salvage the fuzzy model, I decided to build a new Nurgling pile. I still had half a Nurgling kit left, which was just enough to get the job done. The most challenging part was making sure the new pile lined up with his chair since I had already sculpted a hand onto it which needed to match up to the arm of a Nurgling. After some careful placement I got it to work and I think the new Nurgling pile turned out even better than the last! I was able to fit more Nurglings on it and make it look busier, plus I got more of the Nurglings to be interacting with the palanquin. I was able to salvage the scroll carrying Nurgling from the first build since the fuzz on him was pretty minor…"
