Death Guard & The Angels of Ecstasy: A story of filth and debauchery
 
Fellow heretics, I have decided to put my filth ridden Death Guard and their allies in search of perfection and debauchery, on display for all to judge. Be kind (or don't be, I don't mind), but most of all be truthful.

I have played WHFB before and decided to get stuck into it but with Warriors of Chaos (instead of high elves which is where i started from) after my brother bought some skaven, played some games blah blah blah - now we are fully into 40K for the first time!

My army, obviously, dedicated to to God of disease and pestilence, and their newfound allies devoted the the Dark Prince, is CSM.

This is their story!

I like what you've done with the hellbrute, and it's always nice to see a smurf getting stomped. Keep the pics coming.

I like the colour scheme you choose. To me it fits the model better compare to the usual red flesh tone that most people go for. Nicely executed.

Welcome to the Heresy Whittsy,

Great start! Always nice to see miniatures given a new lease of life; or death depending on how you look at it. :)

If you haven't seen this already then allow me to introduce you to Papa Nurgle himself: https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ad.php?t=28554

and his distant relative, me: https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...d.php?t=107072 (I will return to this project one day haha)

all the best and keep it up!

I like what you have done so far; perhaps its face could be made a bit more detailed, but otherwise it looks fine. Will be fun to see how you will continue with them.

looking good cant wait to see more

Varakir 10-15-13 09:04 PM

That scheme is beautiful - you've balanced it nicely so your eyes are drawn to all the right places :victory:

My only suggestion would be to add a bit more colour to the base - it might just be the light but it looks very flat compared to the model. A quick drybrush over basing material does wonders to bring out the detail.

Hey Awfun, and fellow heretics. As a matter of fact I have seen his work and admire it a lot. Unfortunately I am not that way gifted in the artistic side of things, but I try to put my own into my minis.

Saint, I know what you mean, but from a distance, it looks decent enough (for my standards anyway - but i am always trying to improve my painting with each mini)

Varakir, I did this base, along with my cultists, with GW sand and tufts of grass. Since then I have been using the Stirland Mud texture paint. It's on the list to scrape off and re-do with the paint to fit it into the scheme of my army.

Thanks Khorne, Wookie and Blighted for the comments. Appreciate it. More pictures to come today.

My cultists in full force, again the bases need to be redone in the Stirland Mud.
