What can i say about Mortarion? He is awesome and the studio colors really do not do him justice. For Mortarion, I went more toward the Pre-Heresy colors.
I decided on the neon green for the smoke/fire effects because I wanted them to look more other-worldly than the rest of the model which is full of realistic earthy tones.
I really like the Silence in the right hand pose, It is more of a looming predator than the shooty Lantern pose.
I do like the wings. Not sure if i made them distinguished enough from the armor but i like how they came out overall. I decided to not add the additional fly ridden plumes because i think it would have made the top and rear of Mortarion a bit too busy and would have covered the vents and backpack.
The Nurglings are the only thing I really don’t enjoy about the model. They are just a bit too jolly and happy for the solemn feeling the rest of Mortarion has.
And finally an extra illuminated shot of Mortarion. I love his armor and hopefully the next few Death Guard minis will be as enjoyable to paint.
