Default Painting Deathguard

Hi people, I've got an idea of a paint scheme for Deathguard but not sure how to carry it out seeing as im new to warhammer 40K. I have 10 CSM with a deathguard conversion kit from forgeworld and i have them all basecoated in "Death World Forest" and am washing them with 2 coasts of "agrax earthshade" for a really dirty filthy look (just the way a deathguard should be). As for the back packs, do i just do them the same colour as the armour "death world forest"? or do i mix it up a bit? Keep in mind im not the greatest painter in the universe, if i knew how to post some photos up of them to show you guys i would, but i haven't yet figured that out yet. Any help on painting idea, or how to post photos, that'd be great. Cheers guys n girls!

Sounds like you're doing well so far. What colour have you painted the Bolters? I would suggest you paint the back pack in the same colour. Leadbelcher is a good colour for the bolters and back packs, it's a dark silver metallic colour. Agrax Earthshade would be a good colour to shade it too.

If you need to highlight the armour a bit, try adding a little bit of Nurgling green to the Deathworld forest and give it a light dry brush. A purple shade wash (can't remember what it's called) around the gribbly bits works well on Plague Marines.

There are so many different ways of doing Plague Marines.

I liked this tutorial:

Warhammer 40000 Death Guard Painting Tutorial | Sprue Grey Toy Soldiers

Then from there I deviated as I saw fit. It was super easy and I actually enjoyed painting my army for once! lol

Best of luck!

@ SonofVulkan - ive done all the metal bits (backpack grills and cords and bolters) in leadbelcher). I've got nurgling green s i can use that, I've also got Castellan Green, Ogryn Camo, and Elysian Green if they could come in handy too? I'll try doing what you have suggested.

Can't really comment on the DG, but looking at your cultisits I don't think you'll have a problem figuring it out. They look very nice. The pic of your Helbrute is a bit small though, can't make it out too well.

I've finished painting my csm unit. Took them into GWS on Sunday for my first game (which I won!) But had a few people give me really positive comments on them which im stoked about. Id post some pictures up but whenever I try it only poats tiny pictures? Any idea how to make them bigger pictures?

Hellbrute. Hopefully this is a big picture, if not I have no idea how to make it big.
I'm taking the pictures with my phone (galaxy S3) and then uploading them to my computer.
