But, a month ago, I dug them out of their box, and looked at them again. Trying to figure out how to fix them.
I ended up glazing the whole models in Sephirim Sephia, and painting rust on the metallics. Some touch ups here and there, and they ended up looking completely different. I also added some John Blanche inspired shields on their shoulders. And also added a couple of flies, cut from the Maggoth Lord kit.
Here are my first finished squad of Plague Marines. More will follow.
