Plague Terminators Finished

Well, the first squad at least!

These took me a while to get around to finishing, but once I started painting them they came along pretty quick.

Here’s how they started off after taking the Dark Angels iconography off and adding bloated bellies and horns with Green Stuff:

I used Blu Stuff molds to make the shoulder pad icons:

Then I did the monochromatic preshading:

Close-up of the preshading – this is with the light pretty much behind the camera, but it appears as if the light is directly over the head of the model.

With the airbrush painting the base colors took just a couple of minutes, and with Nurgle stuff there can be very little detail work to do (like blisters, sores, horns, etc.). These guys had very few boils and pustules on them, but painting over them with various flesh and bone colors was very quick. Doing the Champion’s power sword took longer than doing all the blisters and stuff!

Pretty happy with how these guys turned out, and it was very quick too.

    • Thanks! Not quite as gory as yours though 😉 and a bit too ‘clean’, wondering if I should hit them up with some weathering powders

      • Yeah, what does this word “moderation” mean and why do people keep saying I lack it? 🙂 I actually like the cleaner, vivid green of your models. It gives them a nice comic book feel.
