Really like how the green pops on these new guys. Also a nice improvement on Typhus!


 

Thanks Verux! My scheme has gradually chnaged over the course of painting him so I thought I'd give the Big Boy the update he deserves biggrin.png

 

 

 

I got the 4th and 5th Plague Marines finished yesterday:

After 10 days of quarantine  I've painted 10 models which I think is a new record for me:

I have only 2 Death Guard models with me at the moment but I'm going to be painting my Dark Eldar  for a bit, they've been neglected for far too long sweat.gif

It was my birthday not that log ago and my lovely mates pitched together and got me Mortarion, I was going to buy him myself but instead I bought some more plague marines and more pox walkers and also the Wurmspat Beastgrave team because they're just too nice not to have.

 

Over the last 2 weeks I've been slowly working on Mortarion. I built bits of him and then sprayed him to make sure I could get to all the nooks and crannies, although as it turns out I managed to do loads of details on parts of the model that were never seen once put together yes.gif

 

So here's the WIP so far, I've still got the scythe and pistol to go. C&C is always welcome!:

The orange is looking good! I forgot how much the model has going on and all the extra details like robes. When I first read the Mortarion post prior to seeing the picture I thought of a small traffic cone with moth wings haha. Definately not a traffic cone, looks good. What colors you doing the wings?

Haha, I defintely had that worry when I started painting him, will this supposedly scary model look dumb? Thankfully so far he looks alright biggrin.png

 

Here's the wings, I forgot to add them in the original post:

They're a little darker than they look in that picture

I was working on my Dark Eldar until I got Morty, I love this army and this project and I'm always looking for ways to continue working on it!

Thank you very much Verux! sweat.gif

 

So, I got him done and I'm really proud of how he's come out. He's a very menacing model and didn't come out looking like a winged traffic cone!

Morty looks great, but I think you need to put some pale blue highlighting around the holes in the front of his plasma pistol, and make the holes white rather than black - right now, the pistol comes across as just being blue rather than the glow effect I think you are going for.

Thanks Dr, I did go back after I took pictures and have brightened the blue (especially on the heat guard) to make it look more energy esque like you suggestted biggrin.png

 

It's been pretty quiet on the painting front for the last few weeks, with work being super busy but I've managed to make progress on the new lot of Melee plague marines:

I used a lot of Putrid Blightkings arms and weapon bits for the 13 new plaguemarines just to spice things up a bit, get some more poses and some different looking weapons and so da they're looking great

Here's all the Melee squad so far, 9 done, 11 more to go sweat.gif

I've gotten my way through 10 of the melee PM and started on a Foul Blightspawn. I'm still waiting ona delivery of Thunder hawk blue so that I can highlight the black panels on the armour but otherwise these guys are done so far:

I've started on the Blightspawn too, glass on the tank is done as is the Nurgling, still plenty to go on the rest of him:

I managed to get a Defiler cheap on ebay as it needs a lot of work. This will be my first jump into Greenstuff as I need to fill gaps and  a missing leg as well as the missing pistons on some of the legs, I'd like to Nurglify it too. I also managed to get a properly old school metal Chaos dreadnought, I believe its the 1995 dreadnought. Lots more work to do!

I got the Blightspawn done, the tank has grown on me I think I need to varnish it for it to look complete I think. I'm still waiting on my Thunderhawk blue to arrive so I can highlight the black trim. C&C is always welcome:

Looking to the future I still have:

4 melee PM

Wurmspat warband

MBH

40 Pox walkers

1 Defiler

These are here with me and ready to be painted but I do have the Indomnitus box to do when that arrives this Saturday. Because I'm currently seperated from my stuff (very long story but my dad is high risk and me and the missus moved out just before he went into lockdown), I actually have more stuff that I have to paint for this army which is:

Rhino x2

Landraider

Another MBH

2 Helbrutes

Felthius and his merry men

Some more PMs

 

Plenty for me to do for these guys and I'm loving it!

I'll be GMing a crusade  with my group which is going to be great, I'll be taking my DG. I've self imposed some rules where, for example players can't take special characters unless they are really desperate to run them or have a good narrative reason to have them. For this reason I won't be running Typhus and will instead be using a Lord of Contagion so I decided to paint one up and get him ready. Here he is done:

The Indominitus box has side tracked my attention for now but next weekend is my first game of 9th! I'll be using my DG with a small 500 point game so that'll be cool!

Thanks Plague_Lord, it definitely is derpy but I absolutely love it for it to be honest. He's so happy to be here! biggrin.png

 

Also managed to get my Defiler painted up, still waiting on the milliput to dry on the scourge to get that on. I got him ridiculously cheap on eBay and have done some work to fill gaps/ give him some mutations. The skin on the chest is too bright due to the light and the orange is super washed out but here he is so far:

Nice defiler! I'm still converting mine up, waiting on a couple bits. They are looking prime point wise now and it's nice they can multi task with ranged and melee. You plan on giving yours DR or trying it without for a few games?

Oh nice...

 

I recently painted some plague marines that were"extras" I had lying around here. I made them off-white/greyish but wished I foud this thread earlier.

 

Good thing I still have some on sprue, might go for orange on the rest.

 

Really nice work!! :)

Oh man! I haven’t been on your thread in a while... Morty looks awesome! I wish I could blend anything as well as you did his wings.

Lord Felthius looks awesome in your color scheme too! I normally hate his face, but damn if you didn’t pull it off!

I noticed going back through your older pics too, your line work is rock solid. Super jealous.

On a side note, I’ve been working on AOS stuff at the moment. Filling out all the war bands for Warcry, and just started on a blightking warband (15 so oops a little big)... anyway, I was looking up pics online and came across some blightkings done in a very similar color pallet to yours. It totally made me think of your army.

Anyway. Awesome stuff, I can wait to see more, keep it up!

Thank you Putrid! I'll mostly be playing Crusade for a bit so I will likely be giving this guy DR as strategems like that in the crusade system are perminent and cost RP instead of CP.

In normal games I likely will as well, it's so worth doing imo

Lord Felthius looks awesome in your color scheme too! I normally hate his face, but damn if you didn’t pull it off!

I noticed going back through your older pics too, your line work is rock solid. Super jealous.

On a side note, I’ve been working on AOS stuff at the moment. Filling out all the war bands for Warcry, and just started on a blightking warband (15 so oops a little big)... anyway, I was looking up pics online and came across some blightkings done in a very similar color pallet to yours. It totally made me think of your army.

Anyway. Awesome stuff, I can wait to see more, keep it up!

 

Thank you Tango, you're too kind happy.png

I love Felthius just because of how derpy he looks, he's been nicknamed "Mr Potatohead" and it's stuck biggrin.png

I think I've seen those Blightkings, orange isn't a normal colour scheme for Nurgle so they do stick out in my mind

Wow, this army is really bright! I'm loving the orange, it's bold and will make your miniatures stand out on the tabletop. My only criticism is that the whole army appears to be banged up, mutated or otherwise... except for the Rhino. Don't get me wrong, it still looks great but it does stand out compared to the rest of the army. That said, you've done all the models justice. :)

Thanks man! For me personally the Rhino would be seen as disposable, it gets the marines from A to B. If they're trying to take an implacment, it's the first thing to be hit and probably destroyed. They probably just mass produce rhinos when they're about to take on a planet rather than keep them in storage, so in my head they wouldn't be mutated or banged up as they haven't spent enough time on a ship.

One-horn the Mad, his real name has long since forgotten.
Thought to be one of the oldest death Guard legionary, he only screeches in a long dead language that few speak which is how his name came to be

I'm back in the saddle again with the smelly boys! With the hype hitting me hard for the new codex, I'm jumping back in after working on my Eldar for quite some time.
What better model to start with than a Forgeworld dread? I still have no idea why these went OOP.
I also have started on another bloat drone with a alternative paint scheme to the previous one to shake it up a bit
