Given the cost per miniature of Forgeworld is considerably higher than GW's plastic range, I resolved to find a purpose for these 'not-quite-pristine' miniatures.
I've always wanted a Pre-Heresy Death Guard army, all the way back to when I read the original 6 line fluff in Space Marine around the seizure of the frigate Eisenstein (the was about may 1990.......). However previous attempts have never really met my expectations (and certainly won't be posted here).
Which I'm much happier with generally. However I have found a few things that I'm less keen on. The use of Warplock Bronze was a mistake. The paint separates into two distinct colours and is a nightmare to work-with.
I applied a thinned wash of Sepia first. I won't bother with it next time - instead I'll just use Oil Paints and a white undercoat.
