Death Guard Marshal Durak Rask finished

Hi everyone!

Following my previous post, I have finally finished painting my conversion of Death Guard Marshal Durak Rask.

It was a real fun to build and paint and I really hope you like him as much as I do! As always comments remarks and votes on CoolMiniOrNot are more than welcome! 

Last but not least, some music for inspiration!

Death Guard Marshal Durak Rask WIP

Durak Rask was a fanatical follower of his Primarch, and viewed Mortarion as a preternatural saviour from his early youth on the benighted world of Barbarus. Having first been accepted into training into the Death Guard Legion when he came of age, Rask's innate intelligence and fervour were marked from an early stage and he quickly proved to be a dour and driven warrior with an uncommon flair for siegecraft. Over his decades of service in the XIV Legion, Rask rose steadily through the ranks to become his Legion's Marshal of Ordnance, proving his mettle in many battles and campaigns, and earning a rare commendation from Mortarion himself after the Siege of Valstpol, a battle in which Rask himself lost his left eye and was left horrifically scarred. When Mortarion declared his allegiance for Horus at the start of the Horus Heresy, Rask was one of the first and loudest in his support, having already become a member of the Seven Pillared Warrior Lodge which had been founded within the Death Guard to corrupt them towards the service of Chaos from within. On Istvaan III Rask volunteered to lead the vanguard attack against his former Battle-Brothers, a treachery he would pay for with his life.

 Hello everyone once again! My pre heresy Death Guard project is moving on and I am currently working on a model from the Betrayal book, Marshal Durak Rask. Its all part of the painting challenge over the GreekWarhammerForum (take a look if you are a greek reader).

I have decided to use the model of a Space Marine veteran that had the fewest possible Imperial Eagles and I went on fully converting his Volkite Serpenta using parts from a plasma pistol, a lasgun and some other bits I had lying around. The backpack was the other major part of the conversion, using a regular backpack and most parts from a guard comm backpack. The resin part is a bit from Anvil Industries. Finally, I used the shoulderpad from Forgeworld, and Thunder hammer from paulson games

So there you have it, I hope you like him! Ready to throw some paint on him!

Great ideas come with great music! Till next time, take care!

Death Guard Tactical squad Faestus

Hello everybody!

The people over in Greek Warhammer Forum had this sweet idea of making a contest based on an ancient White Dwarf series of articles, The tale of X gamers. To make a long story short, gamers gather and pledge to build an army on either Warhammer or Warhammer 40K in a specific time period, and I thought that this would be a lovely incentive for me to get my ass and make some progress on my Pre Heresy Death Guard Army!

So for all my greek speaking friends out there, here's the link to my thread presenting the progress of my army! For everybody else, here is what I have finished for this months challenge, Death Guard Tactical Squad Faestus

 It's been a while since I have finished a full squad and I feel really good that I made it! I enjoyed painting these models, I really love the war torn feel and look that the Death Guard has and I tried to show it as best as I could using a variety of washes and pigments as always.

So there you have it, thats my version of a Death Guard Tactical squad, stay tuned for more pre-heresy goodies! ;)

Great inspiration for these fellas, was the dynamic comeback of Jason Newstead!

I would love to hear your comments and see your votes on CoolMiniOrNot as always! Till next time, take care
