About the Nurse Florence Series
Sometimes it seems only a nurse can bring technical information down to an understanding that an ordinary person can grasp. The Nurse Florence® book series provides high quality medical information that even a child can grasp. By introducing young kids to correct terminology and science concepts at an early age, we can help increase our children’s health literacy level as well as help to prepare them for courses and jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We need more scientists so I hope that many children will enjoy this book series and consider a job involving science.

Lord Typhus, Herald of Nurlge
Old Sculpt Miniature Paint Up by Tim Kaney
Hello all my friends amd followers! Long time since posting on my art blog. A nice and simple post here, hopefully.
II am very pleased to share my finished paint up of the old school sculpt of Lord Typhus, Herald of Nurgle. Only a few years late. I actually bought it when it came out or maybe got it as a gift. This is a model from the table top wargame Warhammer 40,000.
It was quite a nice model, albeit smaller than the current one, and fun to paint. It was one of the old all pewter models.
I utilized an older paint scheme with vomit brown base layers, brown yucky washes and yucky shades. From there I used putrid green and other green for top layers and highlights. Finally I top coated with brush on Satin Varnish and then based with some classic railroad gravel and sponge bushes. The gore bits and vlood on the scythe is the new technical paint Blood for the Blood God.
Brushes used are various and none of them super expensive. I have found that even those invariably break, deteriorate, and go bate at a rate all not too much different than mid-grade or lower brushes.
This was primed in Krylon Grey Paint and Primer.
All said and done was a few hours.
Paints: Citadel, Army Painter, Folk Art, Plaid, P3, etc.
Uhm, I'm the guy who runs this website - artist, designer, writer, father, and husband . . . big whoop, wanna fight about it?!
