WIP Deathguard

Alright, don't ask how I've painted the daemonprince, as it was hours of layering random greens, browns and purples until it looked how I liked it lol. Let me know what you guys think so far. Believe it or not, the Plague Marines were based with a mix of 50/50 Catachan Green and Tentacle Pink (Valejo equivelant), then a drybrush of 1/3 Catachan Green, 1/3 Tentacle Pink, 1/3 Dehneb Stone (I think thats how its spelt 0.O ). After that, I drybrushed Rotting Flesh, did a heavy wash of Devlan Mud, and did the details. I wanted to go for a look similiar to The Cleaved, with toxic looking goop comming out of the eye sockets and face grill, as well as random parts of the armour. Have 9 done so far, need to do the Nurgle Herald from FW, another 12 Plague Marines, Two Rhinos more Rhinos (built and painted) and then possibly some heavy support.



  1. Haha thanks, I'm going to do some more conversion work, the Plague Marines were sort of a tester for the paint scheme. I'd like to individualize each Marine a bit more and I'm planning on basing the fluff of the army, along with special characters on the Deathshroud from the HH book Flight of the Eisenstein.

  2. Hours of random colors appears to be exceptionally effective. Very nice.
