It seems that I also spent some time putting together more terminators using the Forge World upgrade kit to make some Death Guard terminators. And obviously, me being me, I put them aside for ages.
Well, this past week, I actually managed to paint one. Bit by bit. It was a bit of a strange experience, as I was returning to my Death Guard scheme, and I hadn't painted that particular scheme for a good few months. I'm reasonably happy with the outcome, and I'm pleased I've not tried to take any short-cuts or owt.
As you can see from the pictures, I've given this fine young gentleman a massive gnarly claw. Not entirely sure where it came from, asides from it being a gift from my good friend Fulgrim's bits box. It looks possibly as if it might be from some sort of incarnation of the Keeper of Secrets or some other large Slaaneshi model. Regardless of whence it came, it certainly seems to have worked out well, and doesn't seem out of place on the model.
So here are the pictures...

feeling that from time to time, I may have overdone the rust
effects on some of the Death Guard models I've painted.

is unbelievable. If I was better at painting, I'd try
and do it more justice!

hopefully achieve that using the Vallejo metal medium.
