Seventh Death Guard Marine from Warhammer 40000 Dark Imperium set is finished. This was the final mini of this set. Now it’s time to paint something different 🙂
Finally, I can share some photos of the commission work done lately!
It came to me in two parts – Dark Imperium Nurgle minis and Renegade Knight + Armiger Helverins. While painting Dark Imperium was really quick and easy – standard miniatures, on a Basic Table-Top level, the Knights detachment was little more challenging 😉
My main assumption when painting for a Basic standard lvl is to make things really quick and easy, as much as I can, but with a good, clean and well-looking finish, at least at the first sight 😉
Citadel Washes and Contrast paints are just perfect for that, and I used them a lot here.
To achieve the certain shade of green, I started with painting Plague Marines’ armour using an airbrush, then painted some details and metallics, and then, almost dipped whole miniature in Agrax Earthshade to create shading and dirt.
The Bligh Drone was painted using the same techniques as the Plague Marines, it just took some more time to paint such big surfaces 😉
Then, the time has come for the horde of Pox Walkers – only 10 of them are in the pictures – It’s half of the amount I’ve painted, rest are just exactly the same 🙂
They are almost 100% Contrast Paints, with the solid coat of Agrax Earthshade at the end to make them fit better with Marines.
As I said Before – the real struggle begun with the big boys. They are not only very big and detailed miniatures, that comes in many, many parts – I also had to customize them a little bit, to fit the Chaos standards better and please the Papa Nurgle. Nonetheless, they are still in Basic lvl painting (and modelling), so nothing so very amazing or unusual here, just some spikes, horns and pimples 😉
Da Biggest Boi n da Hood was in need of the fourth arm, to make the emperors minions evaporate even faster!
So, I had to build one from the scratch, using some modelling putty, bass guitar strings, plastic pipes, and some old bits and rubbish.
Of course, all of his arms are magnetized to make weapon swaps quick and easy!
That’s all for now, but some very cool and exciting projects are in progress, so stay tuned for more, cheers!

There is only one nurgle marine left from the set 🙂
