Default heresy death guard and Tau

Good morning fellow hobby geeks,
ive been on this site for about a year but haven’t actually posted any. ive decided that i should start sharing my work as im a bit of secret hobby scrillal. i horde models like nuts
ive been working my death guard army for about 2 months now and have 1 heavy flamer unit all painting up and well as 10 of a 14 man despoiler unit.
im working on the second tactical squad ATM
here is some of my work in progress pics, sorry for the blurriness of some of the pics

this isnt the most upto date pic but ill post them today or tommrow. hopefully ill have the highlists on the metal and gold finshed on my next post
[img][/img]

here is a few pics of the finshed heavy flamer squad. i used a flat base coat on these models which worked but i havent used of any of the other models and probaly wont on the rest.

these pics are of my despolier squad. atm i still need to add anouther 4 men due to a list change as both tac squads will be 14 men. the seargent in the pics above will be joining the despoliers.

on theres models i used a zenithial style hight ligh. i used a black base coat and then airbrushed with Gorthor Brown trying to leave sum black in the resesses. i then air brushed with Krieg Khaki. i then brush highlighted with Krieg Khaki. i went a bit mad with the weathering on this unit but i think it works well.

I do like them very much, the scheme and weathering hints at what they are to become. Nice one.

Welcome aboard the PLOG section, my heretic friend!

I have to say, your Deathguard looks fantastic - I really like the subtle weathering and the slightly realistic theme you got going. Thumbs up from my end

In regards to the tutorials, how about I make you a deal, as I've just started on my Word Bearers: you handle the Deathguard tutorials and I will handle the Word Bearers. This way we can join forces and spread the chaos influence all over this forum ;)

Why thank you all hobby dudes tawa and R_Squared!
I’m still trying to button down what my process is. But in the meantime im kind of clad it’s still quite fluid as its creating a lot of variety in the army. Im not a fan of a completely uniform army’s. I haven’t done any tutorials before so it might take me a while and they’ll probably just be pics and text as I have no video editing skills lol.

Nordicus I was so close to doing word bearers, just had a quick look at your work clad im not competing. Your minis are gorgeous man!

It's actually your fault I've gone from "Heh, maybe get one but I doubt it" to "I could really smash through a Calth box right about now!"......

hi guys, painting of the second tac squad is coming along slowly. With any luck will be posting some progress pics tonight or tomorrow. Don’t have any pics but I am now the proud owner of my first medusa artillery tank hoping to get to build and paint it mid next month. Juggling an 8 month old and hobbying is quite a task :-) after I have finished with this squad I think I’ll be doing my Deredeo Dreadnought that has sat on the table for six months. Think I need a break with painting rank and file troops.

For the Dreadnought ive been pondering using the hairspray, technic instead of the sponge technic but trying something a little different. I was thinking of a 2 layer hairspray method. Black basecoat + metal then hairspray + rust then hairspray and then the same colour scheme but I was thinking of an enamel wash over the top to give it the grime. Or do you guys think it might be to much? I do have a tendency to go a little mad

Just a quick thanks for the motivation guys, ive never gotten this far with a hobby project before as I usually get distracted by new releases.

Tawa I feel your pain dude I had given up the the hobby “to the misses delight” the calth box dropped and I lost my tiny geek lizard brain! But what are these forums for if not to enable our collective addictions ;-) to be honest its the best starter box ive ever gotten but ive quickly realised i need anouther one but want to hold off until we get the MK2'S and 3's.

I was within spitting distance of my local GW today but Mrs and little man kept me busy. Run fecking ragged! So that stopped me from picking one up

hello fello hobby nutters.

i know its been quite some time since my last post.... turns out i update one blog and forgot to update this one. i'd like to say i was just a momentary laps in memory but i would be lieing.

first update is for my dred, model is more or less done. i still have to finsh off the base and give a good coat of matt vanish and it should be ok. i messed up badly with the chipping effect. i did all the multible layers and then soaked and chiped the paint away, bad move as i ended up taking all the layers in one go. think i managed to recover it.......was not repainting it, im far to lazy. ive since started on my medusa useing the same schem, but having problems again as i used way to much vanish before aplying the hairspray. ill be posting pic soon as i havnt taken any yet.

thanks all for the dred for now. next up is the second tactical squad. theses have since been based and are ready war. good abit longer to get done than the despolier squad due to lack of spare time. pretty much the same method i used for the others
