Plague Marine Update

I’ve been working on the Plague Marines that I need for an upcoming Warhammer 40k Combat Patrol tournament that I’m playing in on September 10th, and they’re coming along pretty well. They’re starting to get close to done; I’d say they’re at 70% or so.

The group of them are getting a bit closer to completion

Their weapons and bases still need to be painted, obviously, but their main armor and whatnot is mostly done, minus some details here and there and a final, all-over rust wash to really make them look a bit dirty and gross.

Next step: painting the weapons

There are a lot of layers of Games Workshop washes on these models, from brown to sepia to green to even purple in some areas. There’s a bit of drybrushing here and there and some watery metallics (like on the trim of the shoulderpads) to act as old, tarnished gold.

Next, I’ve got to come up with a good color scheme for the marines’ bolters and chainswords, then I’ll try out the rust wash (video tutorial from Awesome Paintjob) for the first time and then be ready to hit ’em with the Testors Dullcote, which I still find to be the best clear matte varnish spray, even if it does probably change your DNA if you inhale it.
