Chaos Legions Painting Progress; WIP Death Guard Shots
Instead of trying to fight it anymore by picking one and sticking to it, I am going to just make the models and paint the legions I want as I think they would look the best. I rather like this idea as all of the traitor legions have taken some serious hits in fighting over the last 10,000 years - so fighting together with loose and treacherous alliances makes sense and satifies my hobby needs too.
I have had some computer troubles recently, so I too some photos on my phone of the Plague Marine Squad I just revamped and if you aren't too picky about cell phone photos, here are some pics
Here are three of the first squad, the fellow with the melta gun was given a "mossy" treatment with a couple patches or rougher coat and darker washes in those areas. The middle Marine used to be an old techmarine model, which turned out pretty well with the hose on the helmet and the lurched position of the helmet. The fellow on the end was the one pictured above. Like I said, all of these guys are about 85% done.
Here is the full WIP 1st squad, numbering the sacred number 7, including their Champion there with his possessed backpack and Plague Fist (Matt Ward moment). I like the feel of the paint scheme all in all. I wanted some bright, irritated flesh growth on the armour and bellies to help catch attention and to break up the dull green everywhere.
