I think you're off to a good start. The death guard look great.
Your raptors need a bit of work, the brass colour on them looks flat. You should take just as much time with weapons you would with anything else too.

could be the lighting, damn clouds kept coming and going, or the paints, they are ageing and getting a bit thick...though the Raptors, are repainted, Tin Bitz with a watered down Chaos Black wash, GW washes weren't out when i painted them, will look at weapons again as well. cheers.

as i stated in my Ork WIP thread, i plan on purchasing the foundation paints and washes from GW, so i'll be able to do some more stuff with these guys, ie bothering to highlight and adding some washes. thanks for the rep fatmantis.

Go damn more nurgle crap why can't peaple dare to be different, and do more Tsons conversions or slaanesh... that right its because its really hard to do good conversions for those factions compared to death guard.

Ok now that my rants over I would recommend dropping the red elements all together in favor of a light green or a sickly pink since the red really clashes with a otherwise very stunning set of conversions and paint scheme. Not to mention red is the color of Khorn, and is generally not a color you would see on a half dead zombie marine mutated or not.

Two Slaanesh daemons on the first go...hmm I guess the fates have spoken emperors children here I come

PICS!

Typhus got himself pimped!




I used a wash of Snakebite Leather on the fleshy-red parts of the Death Guard, it dulls the red down, but still keeping some of the red colouring, I'm happy with it.



While sitting there looking at my Oblit,


I decided...really hate that Oblit. head...so i got a new one




I've washed one arm of the Oblit. with Snakebite, and you can already notice the difference.

I was pleased with the...mutation...with the GS on the Oblit. so I grabbed one of my spare LC-ed Termies and made him for Nurgle-y.






enjoy XD

PS; I guess this is almost a Project Log now. so if a friendly mod can move it...Cheers
