Dammit, KF, you've got to stop copying me. I have those exact backpacks for my guys as well! Lol

"Great minds..." And such I guess.

Loving the new Death Guard mate, and I really like the colour scheme you have gone for.
The only criticism I could give is that the purple looks a little flat. It might just be the lighting but yea.

That aside I'm excited to see more, keep up the good work!

Yeah, I think it's the lighting. I bought a cheap light box on eBay, and the LED bulbs are washing some of the highlights out of the purple. I almost went back and touched them up after seeing the pics, but they look fine outside the box.

Heads from the Blightkings box work on the Death Guard also. If your looking for a way to differentiate the second squad.
I took the big head and the nurgling looking head and attached them with GS Then made a GS tube coming out of the bug one. The effect works really well.
Otherwise, things look disgusting, as is correct. With the light box issue try putting a thin white cloth into over it to diffuse the light. Might help with the washing out effect on some of the colors.

Your stuff is looking great! I'm looking forward to getting to paint my own. Not set on a scheme yet though.

I was just wondering about Blightknights heads today, thanks!

I got my blight kings the other day, and I would disagree with the blight kings heads fitting. They look way smaller, and don't fit like a DG helmet that sits down into the neck. The BK heads fit onto a sided neck joint, so there's no back to the heads. While it might be possible to make a bare head swap or two with a lot of gs work, I don't think the work required might not be worth it. I'll take a couple of photos later for you.

Yeah you need to do a little GE work to make the connection but some of them work. The others do look to small. The nurgling-looking head and the bug looked the best.

Again, not a perfect fit but doesn't take a lot to make work.
