I finally got some paint on to these Plague Marines...it's been roughly a year since I bought them!

Sofar I have finished one 7-man squad (can be seen below) and I'm currently working on 6 havocs (2 plasma, 2 flamers, 2 meltas).

In addition to this I will try to paint the following: 6 Nurgling bases (well under way), 10 Plague bearers (not even undercoated), another 7-man Plague Marine squad (basecoated) and a Daemon prince (no work done on him yet).

looks good, I very much like the use of purple on the exposed skin, gives a nice effect.

more of the family, nice start, dominius has the right advice, a bit more ooze, actually check the dads army log and look at rictus's landraider, hes got a good balance of decay with colour

The purple decaying flesh is a really nice touch, and the colour of the armour is very impressive; it contrasts nicely with the bone.

Thanks for the comments!

I was trying to achieve a pale and unhealthy look on the dead skin, and I think it turned out quite well, even though it was really simple to do:

basecoat with rotting flesh
wash with watered down purple ink
drybrush with rotting flesh
coat of gloss varnish for a slimy effect

The purple works well on the skin, the do look like they are rotting away slowly.
Good look on the armour, looks like you spent a lot of time on it.

On to the Nurglings! Too bad there aren't any Nurglings anymore...I'll use them as "counts as" Spawn methinks...

I've finished the Nurglings (or Chaos spawn as they are known these days)! Whoo!

Method:
Basecoat with Rotting flesh
Black ink
Green ink
Drybrush with rotting flesh
Done!

I added a coat of varnish to make them look suitably slimy...
