“Seconds add up to minutes and minutes add up to hours.”
I’m not entirely sure why I remember this, it’s not exactly life changing advice or insightful. What it is however is logical and logic I can appreciate.
If you’re like me, you have a lot of demands on your time, leaving little left over to devote to the hobby. Further more, the free time I can put into the hobby I want to use for game play. As you very well may know or have guessed, these things add up to model painting being placed on the back burner and this is where the above quote comes in.
I make it a point to compose some form of hobby progress each and every night. No matter how small or large of an effort it may turn out to be… I do something. Some nights I may get to spend 5 minutes painting, assembling, or trimming mould lines. Other nights I may actually be able to sit down for an hour and put a good dent in completing my next squad or vehicle. The idea here is that all of my progress no matter how minuscule will eventually add up to something larger and ultimately completion.
Don’t let painting and modeling feel like a chore. If you allow this to happen then you’re defeating yourself and the 40,000 hobby. (World’s End Radio)

- The armor was painted with Catachan Green, followed by a Devlan Mud wash, then Catachan again followed by Camo Green on the ridges. The moldy bits were then further painted with Rotting Flesh to make them stand out more.
- The skull, horns, and hooves were done with Scorched brown, Graveyard Earth, Bleached Bone, and Skull White.
- The eyes, hoses, and any other red parts were done with Scab Red, Blood Red, and just a bit of Blazing Orange.
- The left shoulder and Nurgle emblems were done with Snot Green, Goblin Green, and then coated with Badab Black to tone it down a bit. The lighter brown color was achieved with Graveyard Earth highlighted with Kommando Khaki.
- Any parchment/paper-y bits were done with Scorched Brown, Bleached Bone, Gryphonne Sepia, with some Skull White on the edges.
- The scythe handle was just scorched brown with some Snakebite Leather, while the blade was done with Boltgun, washed with Badab and Thraka Green, highlighted with Blotgun.
- Boltgun metal was used on the boltgun, with some Badab for shading, followed by Boltgun.
The mini is not entirely done yet, as I need to get some detail into the base and would like to add some more detail to the mini itself, but it's a good start. I would like to start on my actual army before I get back to finishing him, but it will happen. Thanks for reading!
