#DeathGuard #KillTeam Poxwalkers washes

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer Death Guard Kill Team. Technically my #NewYearNewArmy for #ArmiesOnParade. These are from the end of September, when #DreadTober took over all my attention. They're completed now, but at this stage I was adding some washes. Again, basecoated with AP Skeleton Bone, washed with Vallejo Game Extra Opaque Heavy Red.

These four -  basecoated with AP Skeleton Bone, washed with AP Green Tone Quick Shade.

These four -  basecoated with VGC Stonewall Grey, washed with AP Green Tone Quick Shade.

These four -  basecoated with VGC Stonewall Grey, washed with Vallejo Game Extra Opaque Heavy Red. This would give me a subtle variety among all 16. The one on the far right has also had some highlights on the flesh - 1 thin coat to let some of the underpainting show through.

The next session was even more shading and griming up with some highlights on the skin

That trench coat looking absolutely filthy and disgusting. Camera360 is once again making these images look like illustrations when seen at the right size. It's a cool effect but for these purposes I need clarity not effects.

It's great for making the background white and the Fuji Velvia high contrast film effect but I really need to come up with a better solution.

I had real concerns about these and not keeping the aesthetic from the Marines but I think despite cleaner highlights on the pants they still fit.

And the colours have come out really well too. Using the same highlight on skin means it's just the shading that different.

That way I can see enough to split them into groups, if need be or as one big mass there will be diversity in their finish when all mixed up.

Really pleased with the results, just need to take the TO DONE! pics in a way that doesn't look unnatural.

I enjoy the effect, but it's not what I need for my showcase. So I have to do all the pics again.

Luckily, I've got a few more things to photograph too, so at least I've got some new content to share. Finally finished some long term projects - Adeptus Titanicus I mean you. I can't wait to share them with you, move onto some of the other items on my palette.
