I proudly present our favorite painter from Finland: Pake, and his NEW Death Guard army, following up his fabulous original pre-heresy Death Guard army of 2 years ago. Take it away Pake:
“I re-built my Death Guard army just because I wanted a project.
I wanted them to look more battle-damaged than my previous army and I read somewhere about a “weathering with Marmite” -technique and it was just what I was looking for. The Marmite Technique can be found here: http://www.tabletop-terrain.com/archives/2008/02/19/852/ I just took it a little further and added some of my own secrets and a few texhinques that can be found in Imperial Armour – Model Masterclass vol 1.
This time I wanted to make the army more coherent and plasticard was the solution. I started chopping pieces of plasticard and glued them on basically everything.
I think it gives the army a very coherent look.
Even though the army looks a little pre-heresy, it’s definitely post heresy. I didn’t want to go with the bloated and rotten look but still maintain the pre-heresy feel.
The Mortarion was a commission job done for me so it’s an original model but not sculpted by me.”
-Pake lives in Finland. He’s been playing 40K since Rogue Trader. (his first copy of White Dwarf was issue 104.) He feels DG players are the most passionate about their armies and everything related to DG. Pake started collecting a Plague Marine army because he thought it was easy to paint, but as soon as he had painted his first unit, he knew there was no coming back. After almost two decades of painting, he’s still learning new techniques every day and trying to improve the stuff he already knows.
~Lets give it up for Pake. If you have any questions for him, I’m sure he’ll be along soon enough. I’m pretty impressed with that chipped paint technique of his. It’s a really fantastic effect I hope to replicate one of these days. I’m also officially green with envy over that Mortarion model. My pre-heresy Deathguard feel inadequate without their Primarch. Also, great work using our Pre-heresy Death Guard logo sheet for both plasticard and decal work.
