Plaguebearers finished

I finished my 15 Plaguebearers for the 40kFightClub.com 2011 Painting Challenge for this month. I got them finished yesterday afternoon. Unfortunately due to the time crunch of needing to get them done before today because I would not have any time to work on them today, I was not able to finish the tutorial that I started in my last post as I would have liked.


Here is a quick summary of what I did for the rest of the painting. I painted the swords with Chainmail and washed with a thick wash of Chestnut Wash. The tongues and wounds were painted with Scab Red and Highlighted with Blood Red. The leather wrappings around the arms was done with Dark Flesh, Snakebite Leather, Highlighted with Bubonic Brown and washed with a thinned down Chestnut Wash. The bases were painted with Bestial Brown, overbrushed with Bubonic Brown, and drybrushed with Bleached Bone.

I like em, but i cant help but think they look a little bit too 'clean' for plaguebearers, the pics before the final dry brush look better to me, maybe its too much? or perhaps its just the pictures themselves not showing them as well as they are in reality? :) good work either way.

Thanks Dalinair. They are a little on the clean side, this particular painting scheme is really subtle though. Most people like my army better when they see it in person.

Nice work mate - they look great as a unit. Are you planning on flocking the bases? If you do you should use a dead or burnt grass rather than the green to suggest the plague they carry has killed it off.

Thanks RoguePom. I will be adding static grass to the bases. I think the grass I use is called Autumn Gold/Autumn Harvest, something like that. You can see it on pictures of my other daemons.

NIce work! I like the red tongues and flesh, I bet it stands out well on the battle field which is what you need with nurgle.
