About the Project

Hello people,I started a death guard painting thread on the old forum, and now i wanted to continue her. For starters I will load some of my old pictures from the old thread, and show the simple paints scheme im using for them. I will maybe talk a bit about my own lore for them, and the same time in this thread. And as always, comments is welcome :)

So as I said the last time that i have painted 13 of my 20 cultist. Ive been using some more paints, but still tried to keep it with the theme I have made with my other models. Ive add blue and orange. Again its the same principle as the rest of the army base paints and wash. Im not trying to be to neat with the wash, because i want it looks, dirty, grim and sickly.

And so fare im pretty happy with the results

Im gonna do all the bases when all 20 is done. Again using GW Astra Granite, then drybrush with AP Skeleton Bone, and then a GW Nuln Oil. And then i start playing with GW’s Nurgles Rot, to make it look… well nurglish…? The side of the base used GW Steel Legion Drab.

I will hopefully get painting a bit again tomorrow.

My death guards humbling begins, started with the warhammer 40.000 starter set Dark Imperium. My first goal at the time was to try a fast but still be tabletop standard. I saw some different methods using a white base coat and some washes, that really made the figures pop.

So i started by base coat the whole lot white. I’ve used both GW’s white scars, and when i emptied it, I used Army Painter Base white.

Then basically the plan was to base coat every thing, and then give them a wash and done.

 

And mostly the plan worked out, but I need to paint some bits in other washes, but otherwise i was very happy with the results

The paints ive used so fare was: (there where probely more 😉 )

AP Army Green

GW Screaming Bell Bronze

AP Chaotic Red

GW Seraphim Sepia

GW Carroburg Crimson

GW Nurgle’s Rot

AP Plate Mail Metal

GW Astronite Granite

GW Nuln Oil

AP Skeleton Bone

GW Agrax Earthshade

 

At this point all the figures from the starter set was painted. But know i wanted to add some more to my army, and what could be better than a dreadnought?

But it was of course not enough. Ive found some old Plague bears, and bought myself a mini demon tank. I started with the same approach as the rest of the death Guard, but i went maybe a bit to heavy on the wash on the mini tank, but it still fits with the rest.

Because you more or less always see Plague daemons as green, I decided to use some other colors than just green (some of them are green) but some other sickly color. But judge for youself. Ive used GW washes for all the daemons, but cant remeber there names right now.

And her we have all have painted at the time.

And finally at last where we ended in the old forum.

Ive started painting on 20 cultis, and her you can see the 3 first painted and some easy build death guard my sweet sister gave me.

And this is where i will continue from in the future.
