Here are the first couple of test minis for my new deathguard force. I started collecting in anticipation of the next imperial armour release, and will consist of mainly troops led by a terminator sorceror lord, i plan on adding traitor guard depending on what rules forgeworld comes up with.
Anyway, the paint scheme is 'post heresy', that is in the period following the horus heresy when the death guard have accepted nurgle and are beginning their decay, thus they have a version of the pre-heresy colours on the chaos deathguard miniatures.
Since i took these (shoddy webcam, sorry) pics, i came up with a nicer rust effect, which I will also add onto the marines. It isnt pictured as i came up with it just after these photos, but basically, you paint heavy chestnut ink splotches into the rusting areas and allow it to dry. You then do a light drybrush of the area with chestnut ink to dirty it up if need be. Finally, you use a mix of blazing orange paint, purple ink and water, about 3:2:3, and paint it within the area of the dark chestnut patches (as messy or neat as looks appropriate). This dries with more orange at the edges, and the purple ink and water fades it more towards the centre, coming up with a nice rust finish. I might post more pics and a tute when i get my hands on a digital camera again.
Anyway, here are the minis:
test marine: he needs some lighter orange rust and a shoulder insignia (have ordered some inkjet decal paper )
