Plague Marines! (How To Paint)

Im still working on my how to paint series, slowly but surely its moving along. Here is the end result of my how to video:


Also playing this fun, but tough list as of late... It both fun to play and play against, and can compete against even some of the top tier list. With Tau gunline and Wave Serpent spam on the decline, its got some legs.

The Plague Father takith' and Plague Father givith'

I have got a few games in as of late, and with my daemons rocking about they have proven to be a rather strong contender on the tabletop. Normally I would be rocking Fateweaver, a GUO, a DP, screamers, oblits, and a heldrake. With that combo packing a punch, it delivers it and delivers it hard. So to try and make more of a friendly list, I am going to run an army which all troops have feel no pain (Typhus with Zombies, Plague Marines, and Plaguebearers with a Herald and LGoC). Do do that i had to finish up several units of plague bearers (finished the 20th tonight). Here they are:

A side of Daemon Prince

While I wrapped up this DP a few weeks back, I never did get around to posting him on the blog. I ended up going with a more generic color scheme rather than try to paint him specific to any of the chaos marks. I tried to paint him up with a brown scheme as opposed to the red scheme to begin with, but it did not turn out well at all... I dont know what exactly went wrong, but it really looked bad. Into the dunk tank it went and onto a red scheme. I primarily used vallejo model air paints with ferrari red, orange, and yellow to create a transition from low to highlights. Enjoy, and happy new years!

Busy with Daemons

Sorry for the lapse in post as of late, but its certainly not from a lack of hobbying! I usually tone done the updates around the holidays as other priorities certain take focus this time of year. With that said, here is a Lord of Change I'll be using as Fateweaver which I painted up this weekend. He (She) is going to take a lot more work, but its off to a good start.

My Despoiler - Kitbashed Abaddon

I decided to try to run a deathstar in my CSM/Daemons army which is composed of Abaddon and Typhus in either a squad of 30 zombies or with 3 obilts (depends on the matchup). As I didn't like the idea of shelling out 25$ for what is currently an awful mold, I turned to the bit box. With some limited lord bits (only front torso, one shoulder pad, left claw, axe, and spike racks), a csm head, a ork nob should pad, and a black reach terminator I went at it and craft this baddddd dude. I really like how he looks. I decided to also for the first time try a non-metallic metallic paint job on the axe blade.
