So I’ve been squeezing in a few other models while I’ve been working on Becky the Bloat Drone, and one of them is my first Dark Vengeance cultist. Considering how much I use these guys in games it is sort of shameful to let them linger unpainted so I finally made a start.
I decided upon my usual desert theme, then painted and based accordingly since this will go with my daemons. I messed around with a bunch of washes on his one shoulder guard as a sort of a test for plague marine power armor. Good job I did too, because while it is fine for this guy, I wouldn’t have liked it on my plague marines. I guess that is why one does tests on guys like this.
Decided to go for yellow on his respirator tank to add some needed contrast to the model. I’m finding the cultists useful for getting some experience painting skin that could conceivably be called human.
Only 19 more to go and my Dark Vengeance cultists will a force to be reckoned with, Tide of Traitoring, Cult Ambushing, and so on their way to victory. For now it is just this guy. Occasionally squeezing one into the queue from time to time, I’ll probably have the unit done by 2022 or so.
Next time I’ll post another Bloat Drone update. I should have the flesh more or less done by then. I have a Herald of Nurgle-Poxbringer-Kromlech Chaos Spawn I need to put up here as well when I can as well. I’ll use this guy with him for size comparison purposes.
