I didn't take a picture for every single death guard, just three to show some cool conversions and give a general idea on paint schemes. In a previous post (also from a long time ago) I stated I was going to mix two separate color schemes into the Death Guard army. The first color scheme, as on the leftmost and center figure, consisted of overbrushing Scorched Brown, drybrushing Bleached Bone, smacking down some heavy Devlan Mud, and drybrushing Bleached Bone. The second color scheme, as on the right most figure, was overbrushing Catachan Green, slathering on that good ol' Devlan, drybrushing Cata Green and drybrushing with Camo Green. Any tubes were done with Mechrite Red followed by a 50/50 drybrushing of Mechrite Red and Dheneb Stone. The metal bits were simply Boltgun Metal and Devlan Mud. The skin on the Death Guard started of with Adeptus Battlegrey, followed by a wash of Asurmen Blue, highlighted with Elf Flesh. The trophy head held by the champ was given a further highlight of Skull White. The thing I love about the paint schemes above is they're relatively quick, and I was able to complete fifteen troops in the course of two evenings, probably eight hours total.
The other thing I completed was my 'Hulk SMASH!' Greater Daemon of Nurgle. The model itself was a conversion I decided to do after I did my Daemon Prince (see post of that from last year), as I had a complete body from the GD to work with. I just needed a head and arms. I rummaged through my bitz for a while trying to decide what exactly would fit on the body, when I remembered this now defunct game called Vor. Vor had these awesome creatures called Growlers, that were described as a cross between a gorilla and a t-rex. I was lucky enough to have purchased some of these before the game went to the wayside. So after relieving the Growler of his head and arms, I decided that wasn't enough. Fortunately, there were Growler Pups (lil' baby Growlers). I thought the three-headed look was great and each had a single horn to boot! Very Nurgle-y!
The paint job was done in the Catachan Green scheme as described above. The only thing to add is the open sores were painted with Dark Flesh and washed with Baal Red. Oh yeah, the whole 'Hulk SMASH' thing...well, initially I said that due to the look of the model, but it quickly became evident during a game with Oni that this thing likes to smash a lot of things, like dreads, termies, marines. Fun times :)
