I painted Gutrot as an entry for Golden Demon. I managed to win Gold in the Warhammer Single Miniature Category and the 2016 Slayer Sword.

I set myself very clear goals for this project which helped me to keep my focus during the ten months it took to complete. These were :

To develop a distinct ‘nautical Nurgle’ style for the project. The aim here is to come up with something original that still fits with the established look and feel of Nurgle;

To become familiar with ScaleColour paints from Scale 75 and their uses;

To ‘go back to my roots’ and explore a strong palette of contrasting saturated colours in an up-to-date context.

To pull out all the stops and try to paint my ‘best’ mini yet!
