Quick and Dirty (Ha!) Plague Marine

Sometimes I feel as though I do things for the awful puns I can title the projects with.

I do not apologise for this behaviour.

This is a Plague Marine from the Dark Imperium box set. My students aren't ever so fussed about the paint job of Chaos Marines, and they tend to say that the spiky bits and tentacles carry the model no matter what the colour.

Basically they were just excited to play with the damn thing, and as a teacher I was happy to oblige. Getting students engaged in anything is the first step to outstanding teaching.

This took about one hour to paint, and that included letting the paint dry.

  • Undercoat White
  • Wash the white with thinned Ushabti Bone.
  • Base coat the restof the armour (WAAAGH Flesh, Hashut Copper, Khorne Red)
  • Heavy wash of Agrax Earthshade


There's certainly more detail I can do later, but in terms of getting this model to tabletop and looking the part, it's done the trick.

Until next time!
