I hope to knock off a lot of painting in this army in the next few months, so lets hope I can keep this thread current!

Firstly- my test model for the plague marines (a decayed version of the pre-heresy style, made some waterslide transfers which worked out nicely)

WIP Aspiring Champion- I dropped it and snappend and lost the hilt half of his sword :S must make a new one soon.
This will be mounted on the same sort of base as the plaguebearer (any asp. champ with daemonic visage will have orange eyes and a daemon base)

PlagueBearer (sweet bases from Back to Base-ix)
( I had another that i fully finished off, after i gloss varnished it i went to dullcote it- BUT didn't read the label on the spray pack- ended up spraying half the poor bugger aircraft grey :S ony took a couple of hours to do him in the first place so I happily placed him in the stripping tank. This one turned out a lot better especially on the base, so I have another 6 to do)

A rather disgusting spawn (click thumbnails to enlarge)

Some WIP nurglings!

I love it! your colors are very sharp, they seem to be very smooth.

the only thing id critique on is the spawn. it looks like it doesnt have enough contrast.

may we get a like to the site of your bases?

20-10-2006, 17:16
I agree with the spawn, it didn't come out quite right, i didn't do enough shading. I do like the gore though :D

Here is where i get my bases:

good and cheap! I'm hanging to see what his 25mm Round Industrial bases will look like, will probably suit my mechanicus when i get round to making skitarii

sweet, always loved the detah guard. are you gonna use all classic minis, or mix them inot the boxed ones for a variated army?

subscribing to this, keep it up.

20-10-2006, 23:43
They're all the classic ones pretty much, have one or two plastic guys thrown in too- only new minis will be the HQ (terminator lord used as a sorceror) and I bought havoc heads to put on new imperial terminators for converted chosen.

i have 4 squads of marines, an old rhino, 7 nurglings, 6 more plaguebearers, an old predator (mutated hull), a GUO and an FW dread to do

Looks like I have a 1000 point tournament in Janurary to attend, so production shall be ramped up :) my FW dread arrived yesterday, which is good fun. I will try to finish the dread and my commander soon then move onto the rest of the troops a squad at a time. Tourney army list follows.

Group shot! lots of work to do

22-10-2006, 05:11
nice! Classic deathguard are some of my favourite models, and the paintwork on them thus far is ace!

can't wait for more! :)

23-10-2006, 09:12
Dreads base is painted, legs have been basecoated and 'rustcoated'. it's all part of the same painting process as the test marine, so as ugly as it currently looks it shall all work out :)

love the army and colour could be so kind and share how you painted the armor?

17-06-2011, 05:13
Jesus i didnt even remeber owning death guard :P
it think it was dheneb stone, washed with very thin bestial brown, cracks shaded with (i would now use) devlan mud, and then some manual labour highlighs of dheneb stone/white mixes

17-06-2011, 15:25
It seems that you are using the old Chaos codex, is this deliberate?

Otherwise, very nice, especially trhe Daemons. I agree the spawn needs another colour (I would suggest some bone) top contrast all the red.

All minis long since sold or traded :P
