New Blightlord Color Scheme

I spent the months leading up to the release of the new CSM codex strippging my Blightlord army in anticipation of re-painting it once the codex was released. I was not entirely happy with the previous color scheme; it looked too much like the Dark Angel scheme. Also, with the release of GW's new paint line, it seemed like a good time to redo it. Here is my test Chaos Marine model.


The paints I used are :
  • Primed - Chaos Black
  • Armor
    • Base - Death World Forest
    • Armor Trim - Leadbelcher
  • Bolter - Administratum Grey
  • Eyes - Khorne Red
  • Wash - Agrax Earthshade
I like the new scheme much better, although I am not sure about the grey on the bolter. However I cannot think of a better color. Any suggestions?

I also painted a test Blightlord Plague Marine.


The paints used on this model are mostly the same. The paints used are :
  • Primed - Chaos Black
  • Armor
    • Base - Death World Forest
    • Armor Trim - Leadbelcher
    • Wash - Agrax Earthshade
    • Highlight - Nurgling Green
  • Head
    • Base - Nurgling Green
    • Wash - Reikland Flashshade
    • Highlight - Ushabti Bone
    • Highlight - Pallid Wych Flesh
What do you think?
