[40K] Death Guard Comission V, Part C

Well, the last models of this batch, and we return to the Legion troops

* Rhino: Second transport, but this time we left the corrupted ones and went for an original tank of the Legion, so it needs to be a Deimos Pattern. Of course ten thousand years under the hands of the Death Guard and the Warp have marked the transport, and some minor mutations have been made.

I love to paint inside the transport, maybe it usually is hidden by the doors, but there are a lot of details there...and much more when you chaotized it!

* Plague Surgeon: Another amazing model from the Death Guard range, I love how it mix technological details with tools for alchemical use. The model don´t bring a nurgling, so it needs one! A medic/nurse nurgling, always ready to help. And also I changed a bit the neck and made it longer (don´t know...he looks like he is missing some vertebrae or has scoliosis...)

[40K] Death Guard Comission V, Part B

Weekly update! This time...drones!!! Maybe the favourite models of this new range, in fact the client like them so much that comissioned me not one, but three Plague drones! and the great Miphytic (I love this one too).

* Plague Drones: From Dark Imperium, the new box and the old FW model with a little weapon swap

Again you can see the dark red/mechanicum colour, and instead a pinky skin, I choose an "almost white tone", this would be a nice contrast with the dark colour

Instead of lenses, I choose to paint eyes, big, conjunctivitis, and shiny eyes...

The plastic models have a trail of cords, and biomechanical things, so the correct thing would be to make also a trail of mucus

* Myphitic Blighthauler, such a great model, I like how it looks like a mole criket but also is almost identical to its flying cousins

In the base I made the mark that the tracks should left in the ground, I usually see models with a great paintjob, but miss this littl detail

The next week, back to more "legionesque" things

[40K] Death Guard Comission V, Part A

Hi again people! Seem I have missed  some updates (or maybe I´m just delayed) but I have painted a good bunch of models for this month´s updates. Let´s star with a Plague Burst Crawler

As you can see, the model is a mix of Legion colours and dark red, why dark red? Well, because when my client and I talked about the colour scheme, thought that this would be a nice detail that would link the Death Guard with the Dark Mechanicum, who would probably make these beasts to Mortarion (I don´t see Techmarines in the Death Guard).

You can see the weapons are diferent in this pic, another model? No, just magnetized them, so can change and combine them as the army list needs

And well, a back pic to show the paint stripped, some weathering

The next week, more models!

Death Guard Comission IV, part C

Damn, this post was suposed to be done yesterday, but I forget it...

Another character, perhaps one of the best model of the Death Guard range, the Tallyman! When I saw it, I knew I had to paint one, and this comission was a perfect chance! I think that even his rules are cool (he is somekind of Dark Apostle, and can recover Comand Points), and again my girlfriend had a great idea, sugesting me that I could give the model one or two even "freaker" details with my paintjob, Can you find them?

I´m going to change a little my next update, keep looking

[40K] Death Guard Comission IV, part B

This week update, and how will go those melta gun to be in front of the enemy? Well, tha answer is easy...transport! My client is thinking he would like to have two Rhinos in the army, so be it. The first one is a corrupted loyal Rhino, made with a standar box and the upgrade kit from Wargames Exclusive...an amazing kit but also a nightmare...so many details! Sometimes I didn´t know what I was painting...flesh? fungus? deformed metal?
Anyway, stop talking and more pics

Why Salamander? Well, first of all, this client already has the Space Hulk Terminators converted by me to look like Salamanders, and in some way this is a hint to that comission. Also, the green is a good contrast to the white-bone of the army, is true that is not a "focus model" but this way would also look more special.

I talked about a second Rhino, but is not even glued. That one will be an Heresy MK Rhino, and will have the Legion colours

[40K] Death Guard Comission IV, part A

I´m late, I´m late...I have finished these models the last week but didn´t take the pics until today, and just because I had to charge the camera, and couldn´t find the charger...anyway, here you have the last 9 Plague Marines for this army.

The new box plus the amazing Champion

Let´s take a look to the other models

Wait...two relics? three special weapons? I have an explanation, and if you look at the backpacks you can see they are painted in two styles, white and metal, and this is because if I take the models from the Plague Brethen and the First Strike we have these squads

That´s all for now, but this weekend I would upload another unit.

[40k] Death Guard Comission III, part C

Last week, the last one of this month updates. Another model with Terminator Armour...who could be? Lord Festus and the Easy to Build models? Not, they are four models and they are still waiting for a paintjob, A conversion? Not this time, but of course, I gave it my personal touch...

Dear readers, I bring you...Typhus!!! (I showed you before, all of this is just make you lost your time...)

Of course, no Death Guard army could be complete without this character (and a bunch of Poxwalkers, but they are too waiting), a fantastic model (with a lot of detractors) but still I have to do something, and as I showed before, Alex Boyd had done an amazing art years ago so I tried to honor it with a little reposition and a poor guardman.

The demon flies are a nice touch, but I thing a little excesive, so I didn´t use all the bits, and then I painted it like if it was a swarm, more like smoke. I´m not happy with the result, but it looks really good

Well, this is all folks for february, I have another 10 Plague Marines and a looted Rhino in the table, I hope to update again in a week (ja! I wish...)
