I have been working on a Death Guard commission that started as a primer only job but due to the social isolation measures doesn't really allow me to give these models back to the owner easily. So I agreed to do a commission paint job on them to a minimum 3 colors up standard with Typhus getting a 'more effort' level paint job.
Day Zero. This is the collection as I intended to give back to the owner. I wasn't really interested in actually painting them as I have my own Kill Team worth of Death Guard I haven't finished painting in months. However, the owner was fine with a low tabletop standard since they said they weren't very likely to get further than this primed state for a while.
Day One. I am pretty much only putting a single coat of paint on the Poxwalkers consisting of Reaper Pale Flesh. I think combine with the Khaki primer and Argrax shade it should give a convincing enough death pallor look. The bases are in Flat Earth to simulate those of GW
Day Two. I decided to go ahead after checker with the owner on painting groups of 20 in a particular color. This should make it easier for the owner to field them if groups of poxwalkers get close to each other to know which are in each sqaud. Conversely, I am going with brown leather bits one half and black leather bits for the other half as well. So even if the owner wants to just throw together models none of them have completely identical paint.
Day Three. I picked up some Death Guard Green and Armageddon Dunes paint. Normally, I paint mostly Vallejo paints. This was my first 'real' GW
paint (read: not Shade or Technical). I decided on going GW
in case the owner does decide to paint their own stuff or commissions someone else in the future. I have finished most of the Poxwalkers. I just have the blue 20 to go. I did want to get the first base coat of Death Guard Green on the marines as my research has me thinking I going to want to put a second coat on them.
