I painted the Plague Marines using the same method as the Poxwalkers – i.e. basecoating the models, then shading them down with washes. I kept the highlighting minimal, as well – concentrating on the faces, but otherwise just edge-highlighting as and where it seemed necessary.
So, basecoat the power armour with Death Guard Green, or any similar colour (I used a Humbrol spraypaint, then painted over any missed areas with Death Guard Green):
I used orange-brown for the cloak; but the other details are painted in obvious colours:
Wash over the entire models with several coats of Agrellan Earth. I thinned it slightly with water, but this isn’t vital – it’s best to avoid letting it pool in the recesses, though; otherwise it can look a bit blotchy:
For the champion, I used the same colour-scheme:
The fly’s wings were painted with Celestra grey:
The only difference between this and the rank and file Plague Marines was the higher number of pink, fleshy areas – which were washed with Reikland Fleshshade:
Rather than go through the fairly laborious stage of layering-on highlights, I just added detail to the cloak by painting on scratches:
If I get time, I may return to the champion, and add more detail to the hood – as it looks a bit plain; but we’ll see.
