Wow, you're minis look fantastic @WARMASTERWILLIE seriously impressive.

I love the 'realistic' feel to them with the weathering and battle damage, really looks exactly how I imagined the Death Guard to look

+rep for you sire!

Great work again - I'm very impressed with the level of realism in your models and you seem to have nailed your own style in this regard. Do keep up the good work!

Based on the first batch of models, I would probably take another look at the helmet-less face though. The skin seems a bit flat compared to you awesome details on your other minis, so if I were to focus one place for improvement, it would be there. Then again, it's very few models where it will come into play so you're golden as far as I can see.

Not that I'm an expert, but your blog seems pretty good so far. Lots of pictures and relevant updates. My advice would be to try and explain your thought processes more as you go - What choices do you face, what dilemmas are you trying to solve, where does the models fit in, etc. The more people feel they are with you at the table, the more they want to read

Keep it up!

Good evening brothers.

at last i finally have some more images to share. i know its been awhile, but worth the wait i assure you.

first up is my fished Medusa. im pleased to report this model went a hell of a lot smother than the dred did! as before i used the hairspray method. this time however, i made sure that i vanished in between the multiple layers. i cant stress more if your using this method and you want more than one layer of chipping to do this. it will save you alot of pain. once again i used AK interactive enamel washes, i absolutely love these paints, if they wasn't so bloody expensive i would have used them on all my death guard.

i just fished of the crew. you can see where the squad number usually is on the left shoulder pad on the other death guard there is a scull. the reason for this is eventually i wont to use all the squad numbers and it didn't feel right just leaving it blank. dont know if its particularly fully but i think it give the artillery crew a good separation from the rest of the army. ive got some rapier crews coming as well and ill be using the same squad marking on them as well.

slight balls up here, the number on the shell being carried by the marine is white, but is black on the rest of the shells. probably should have had the Medusa close by so i could check lol.

next up is the dred not a massive update on this one, just finished the base.

now its time to show the first finished tac squad. its taken about 3 months but we are finally at lucky number 14! with the second batch of 7 i tried to add some variation in the squad. i deliberately left a few minis with minimal weathering hoping this would show that the squad has a few new recruits in there. i also used 2 washes in the recesses unlike the rest of army so far. the washes on the other minis was just a wash of sepia (heavily diluted with medium). on these i started as normal with the sepia but then went over it with a black wash as well.

last but not least is Durak Rusk. hes have a fair bit of work done since the last update. i had being looking at the mini as it was for about 2 weeks and it just didn't sit right. one of the things i love about the HH is the HQ models. forge world dose such a fantastic job at making the named guys look so good, and this guy just looked like a bit of a lazy kit base by comparison. so i decided to go back and do some re sculpting of the face and find some cool part to make him stand out. first thing was to cut away at his face. fluff states this guy is realy badly scared. the next was hair, dont know if its fluffy or not i just liked the idea of this guy having long greasy hair. i then gave him a new eye. i liberated parts form the ad mech and scions kits for his back pack. i used an ad mech pistol had to give is pistol a different style. the only thing left to do is add some piping on his chest plate, something ive never done before but i think this mini calls for it.

thats it for now. i wont be painting Durak until i have everything else build and painted. i still have 4 despoilers to paint, to get to lucky 14. and 2 thud guns and 10 missile launcher heavy support marines. all of which are on there way. with any luck i should have a new more painted models to show you all in a few weeks.

Splendid work as always mate - A really decaying and rusty army. I love it!

Have you considered making a tutorial on those chipping effects? It would be a great read as more and more people are trying it out
