Plague Marines (Part 1)

Yep thats right, Plague Marines.

My test model is coming along nicely, I read around looking at the ways other people have painted their Plague Marines but settled on my own method, working from a white undercoat I've used a Scorched Brown basecoat, working to Khemri Brown, then Gretchin Green, then to Rotting Flesh followed by a Devlan Mud Wash, so far so good I think, it's mostly about the details then.

With this chap almost done I'm now making a start on the rest of the first squad.

Lots more Nurgly goodness/corruption to come!

Good work sir! Nice to see that you're making the most of your time off. Fancy a 1500 pt shindig one day over the weekend at the shop? Bring your guard, I'll bring the sisters!

Col.Gravis said...

lol thankyou Tim, I would say yes, but alas the Guard have not yet made the move to Exeter! I am army'less pretty much for the time being.

Col. Corbane said...

I thought I'd stumbled on the wrong blog. Excellent plague marine mate, the colour look really good.

Paul Chana said...

Great looking test model, but isnt it going to take an awfully long time to paint a full unit doing each model in the unit to that standard?? Or do you have a quicker (cut down) scheme for the unit?

Plague Marines?! That's a bit of a change of direction for you isn't it? :)
These fellas look great though - nice work, sir. I like all the detail you've done on them - it brings out the crevices and highlights of the metal body very well.

Tim said...

Dude, the guard are eight miles away! Get the bus and bring them in!

Col.Gravis said...

Thanks guys :)

Is a bit of a departure for me aint it eh Col.Corbane & JabberJabber? ;)

Paul, they're actually far quicker to do then Praetorians on account of the more limited colour pallet, I've used washes quite alot as well for me which helps speed up the process further.
