40K: Possessed Space Marines
These guys were an ‘ebay rescue’ that I had a bit of fun painting (and repainting, as it turned out):
Here’s the progression with the freshly stripped and primed models:
Edges done on the Nurgle guys
A lot of drybrushing
Based! plus touch-ups

I found out after I finished the Possessed that Tzeentch is actually more purple and blue, rather than purple and green, so Sunday night I went over the purple Possessed I did.
The Nurgle guys needed to be a bit more green also, so I hit them with a heavy green wash.
It’s a shame these guys aren’t that popular on the battlefield, they’d get used a lot more!
uuuuuuugh, cannot even articulate how much I wish I could paint like this. These look STUNNING. I love their colour schemes.
So so good.
Aw thanks! This was my first time trying edge highlighting (on the blue/purple guy) and I really like how the Nurgle ones turned out with the splotchy flesh color (seriously, Plague Marines are SO easy to paint: http://tabletopstandard.com/2013/08/05/how-to-paint-a-plague-marine-quickly/). I wish I’d kept records on these to list what colors I used, but I just picked various reds for the Khorne ones, various blues and greens (then purples) for the one guy, and a variety of flesh & light greens/yellows for the other two.
