Righto folks, a few Red Wolves have been done as a hiatus from the Death Guard. The hiatus came up because I decided to make one of the Possessed a tutorial stage by stage, and the taking of pictures after each stage made it seem like it takes longer than it should, which was a bit off putting. Anywho, onto the show.
Grish's Death Guard Tutorial:
These steps are used to paint my Plague Marines and Possessed.
Step 1: The base primer, I use a cheap $2-3 can from a local cheapo $2 shop.
Step 2: All armour is painted in Knarloc Green Foundation Paint
Step 3: The armour is then given a wash in Delvan Mud
Step 4: This is done here as it saves time. The trim and any other metal parts, being weapons or packs or pipes and wires, are painted in Chainmail.
Step 5: All armour and metal is given a wash of Babad Black.
Step 6: All armour and metal is given another wash of Delvan Mud.
Step 7: Multiple schemes are used here. Items such as skulls are coated in Khemri Brown Foundation Paint. Spikes and teeth recieve a coat of Calthan Brown Foundation Paint. Skin is painted with a basecoat of Khemri Brown Foundation paint and the 'Nurgly bits' like mutations and sinew are given a basecoat of Tallarn Flesh Foundation Paint.
Step 8: The skulls and skin both recieve a coat of Dheneb Stone Foundation paint, leaving recesses with the previous layer. Spikes and teeth recieve a layer of Khemri Brown Foundation paint, making sure to leave a portion of the Calthan Brown showing. 'Nurgly bits' recieve a wash of Ogryn Flesh.
Step 9: The skulls and skin recieve a Delvan Mud wash. Spikes and teeth recieve a coat of Dheneb Stone leaving a portion of the Khemri Brown foundation paint showing. 'Nurgly bits' recieve a highlight in Tallarn Flesh Foundation paint.
Step 10: Skulls and skin recieve another coat of Dheneb stone foundation paint. Spikes and teeth recieve a wash of Delvan Mud. 'Nurgly bits' recieve a wash in Baal Red. The eyes (helmeted or normal) are painted with Chaos Black.
Step 11: 'Nurgly bits' recieve a highlight of Dheneb Stone.
Step 12: 'Nurgly bits' are given a liberal wash of Leviathan Purple.
Step 13: Base your model accordingly and viola he is complete!
Here's one I prepared earlier:
I've still got another 3 Possessed for this squad to go. with the last having the Icon of Slaanesh. My method for him will to be wearing the CSM Champion Slaaneshi shoulder pad from the CSM Marine box, another the Tzeentch one and another with the Khorne one. Working on one for Nurgle, but it gives me the option to change the icons easily.
I also have a reward system for these guys. I have some Chaos Termies to paint/repaint and my Typhus, so for every two Plague Marines i paint, i get to paint a Termie inbetween. Something to keep me going for now :D
So stay tuned, more is on the way folks.
