I finished the last of my Death Guard tactical marines and support. Well, probably not the last, but I've done 16 bases, plus three tactical support, and three heavy support; so enough for a reasonable sized force which will do for now.
Here you can see he latest marines I've painted. They will be plague marines in 40k games, and tactical marines in 30k.
These are the tactical support bases. Two with flamers, and one in the middle with melta guns. I was considering putting some flame like effects on the bases to help them stand out. I decided not to in the end, but still might as it can be pretty difficult trying to tell the difference between these and the Bolter marines.
Rhino transports for the lot of them. I may add some Death Guard markings some day, but they'll do for now.
Here are the characters I've done so far. From left to right we have a Champion, an Apothecary, a Commander, and a Librarian. They are on magnets so can be removed from their individual bases...
...and added to the tactical bases. Here the Commander and the Librarian try to find a pizza place that can feed 70 hungry marines.
The 70 hungry marines. 16 tactical stands, with 3 heavy support and 3 tactical support up the back.
I have deliberately painted them all with the same markings (so shoulder guards the same colour etc) which makes it easier for me to mix and match bases into different formations like this, and keep the options open. Which as it turns out is how the Death Guard legion operated.
So for now they are ready for the tabletop.
