Greetings all, so last Friday I went a bit off menu and decided that I would paint some Plague Bearers for a four player 40K game I was hosting so I could try out summoning. I had heard that the new plastic Daemons were a joy to work with and that really nice results can be achieved with relatively little effort.
I spent 6 hours on these guy guys if I include the time spent building them, here is a list of the paints I used.
Base ColoursGame Air - Leather Brown (undercoat)
Game Air - Dead Flesh (basecoat)
Game Air - Bonewhite (highlight flesh)
Mephiston Red (eyes)
Zandri Dust (teeth and exposed bones)
Athonian Camoshade (flesh)
Seraphim Sepia (horns, teeth and Claws)
Carroburg Crimson (guts and wounds)
Krieg Khaki (boils)
Averland Sunset (dot in eye)
Ushabti Bone (teeth exposed bones)
Terminatus Stone (base texture)
Typhus Corrosion (sword)
Nurgle's Rot (wounds)
Blood for the Blood God (belly teeth)
Seriously these guys make me want to puke they look so gross but at the same time I am really pleased with how they turned out and I might even paint the Herald next. I am not sure what I will do with them long term, I might just have them sit in my cabinet looking cool or I might sell them and there is even a small chance of some Nurgle allies.
As usual please leave your comments below and be sure to check back soon as I promise you my Stormfang Gunship is almost finished.
