Death Guard Primarch Mortarion Completed!
There were some aspects of this model I just wasn’t happy with and had to go back and retouch. I keep revisiting him but that’s it… he’s done, and he’s ready to take the war to the Imperium.
The wings were something I revisited several times. I wanted them dingy, but there’s a tendency with Nurgle/Death Guard to get dark and bleak. I wanted to have highly contrasting colours in the transitions; greens, purples, etc. The dead flesh base colour on the wings worked as a nice neutral palette for the effect.
Again to add contrast to all those neutral tones, I went with an iridescent glow on Mortarion’s weapon of choice.
Mortarion’s Bodyguards are quite capable in their own right.
I’ve had games where these guys butcher the backlines of the Imperium’s finest… good times.
Thank you for checking this out. The army is nearing completion!
