30k Death Guard - First steps

So, after the wash-athon, the stick-athon and then the undercoat-athon, over recent weeks I have been making real inroads into my fledgling Death Guard.

So the most important point to make is that this simple colour scheme with the worn "we don't wash as if we were teenage boys" look is complex, time consuming and a great project. I did not want to throw these together base coat and drybrush and throw them on the table.  I wanted to focus and get back in the modelling and painting side of the hobby.  Lastly, I need to be able to take better pics - these are stunning in real life and the light camera combo does not work.

Anyway, to date I have painted and weathered to completion

17 Legionnaires
2 x Radio Men
5 x Grave Wardens
1 x Champion
1 x Master of Signal
1 x Apothocary
5 x Destroyers
5 x heavy support with Lascannons.
1 x Rapier
Sicarian
Medusa
40k demolisher which started as a test vehicle but I painted to completion, as I will loot this from the Imperial Fists at some time

Half painted

1 x Spartan
3 x Rhinos
1 x Apothocary
10 x Deathshrouds
10 x Legionnaires
5 x Flamers

Then I go back into the wash-stick-undercoat routine for:
10 x Breachers
2 x Sgts
5 x Destroyers
Mortarian
Typhon
5 x Grave Warden
1 x Achilles Land Raider


Anyway, to the poor pics

Very nice indeed! The vehicles are especially ace, the weathering really sets them apart.

The time you've put in on the weathering has really paid off as the vehicles look great!
