I started getting the Conquest magazine for the Primaris Marines but I could not resist having a go at some Death Guard... The models are a great example of the gifts of Father Nurgle.
 
 
Here is the WIP on the first 2 Plague Marines and a Plague Marine Champion.

This is not planned as a new army in my collection but as a change from painting DA and Tau but who knows what may happen ;)

Well good news is death guard is one of the most forgiving factions to paint I feel. The models are all new and full of detail, but with the usual death guard colors and their growths alot of it blends together so little missed details are unnoticeable I find. They look good by the way!

Well done, so far. The only thing which I don't like about the Death Guard models are these random spike/ bone-growth things...

I have another 3 in progress - unfortunately the same models but I will try an arm swap so as not to be too boring...

Tis a nice start!

 

What I like to do is add nurgle's rot technical paint to the bases around the feet. It adds nice depth and the feeling that the plague marine's very presence is destructive to the environment.

 

Maybe you could try something like that? I just feel that the bases are a bit too clean if you get me :)

I love the bruised flesh colour on the latest guy without a helmet - its really effective, both as a contrast with the green and in showing that the guy really isn't very healthy.

Those are some sick looking Plague Marines!  I'm hoping mine turn out half that good.
