Based on some good comments from my last post, I've added more rust streaking near the spikes, and tried to weather-away(TM) the purple. I'm afraid I just cant't get ride of the purple at this point. So, is this starting to look like one of my vehicles? It is kind of strange, but I don't even recognize this as one of mine!
I think my next step is to add grey/brown/blue streaking to this. Maybe that is too much.

Sometimes things work, and sometimes thing just end. I haven't painted the lenses yet, nor have I hit this thing with mud, or added the rusty chains, but man is this land raider ugly! At this point I have painted everything for my Death Guard. This Land Raider will be used to ferry zombies around the battlefield. If someone could point out a source of decayed human models that I could use to cover this think with bodies it would be great.
Now on the issue of weapon systems...whoa! The new rules make this tank a fortress of destruction. I think I might have to paint one up for my Ultramarines now.

I've painted all of the new Death Guard models, so while waiting for more releases, I decided to paint up the original plague drone. I much prefer this model to the new one. Perhaps I should have used the same painting techniques. Once the protective coat of lacquer dries I'll be able to start working the flesh portions. Those will build from purple all the way to skin color. This model will probably look out of place in my army, but so be it. It is a blast to paint.
1) Spray model with various rust colors
2) Spray flesh purple.
3) Lacquer the model.
4) Spray several coats of chipping fluid
5) Paint the model normally
6) Using a wet brush agitate off the painted surface to reveal the rust beneath.
7) Lacquer the model.

I've run out of Pox Walkers to paint. Whatever shall I do? :)
I am having so much fun with the Death Guard. I massively over weathered these guys, but since I enjoyed every moment doing it, it was worth it!
