Been working on this for a while, mostly posting on Warseer and Thousand-Sons.com. Thought I'd share here.

Here is some of the artwork I hope to emulate in my True Scale Death Guard.

Wow... what can you say? It's just an awesome piece of artwork. I'm not ambitious, skilled or hardworking enough to attempt a true-scale Mortarion though; the closest I plan for is a Captain in Iron Armour with the same Dark Gold/Bronze armour with laquered off-white sections on it.

Again, an awesome piece. These are the Deathshroud, Mortarion's bodyguard. I really like that this keeps the DG imagry, but pulls away from the plain-jane style they are usually depicted as.

Here's what I have on the Marine so far:

All that remains is to add definition to the left leg, bulk up the right leg so it can be covered by a robe, and do the robe itself. The backpack/powerplant will be glued on last so I can paint more easily.

Good job so far :D

The only problem I have is the chestplate. It's way too long...the skull of the "chest"plate should be on the chest, not somewhere around the belly. Also the lower part covers the cod piece...not good ;) fix that and you'll have a nice PH warrior . Also have a look at the Mk3 Khorne Berzerker Helmet, it's perfect for Death Guard.

Well... it's supposed to cover the codpiece. That's how Mks III and IV armour was.

I understand about the skull plate though...

Nope, the chestplate didn't cover the codpiece. The picture you shared shows this very well. The codpiece is a piece separated from the chestplate.

Deathshroud artwork is very impressive, would be awesome to see that as a figure set.
