Default Question on Plague Marines

I have a question on Plague Marines

What color are they normally painted?

I don't mean to offend but the reason I ask is because my Battle Suit Commander is modeled to be standing on the body of a Plague Marine.

thanks a bunch!
(maybe later ill post some pics if i can find my cam)

You dont offend! I collect Chaos and Tau, so :P

Anyway, plague marines are light green, (I go for camo green, but some others use other colors), and for their decorations, i use boltgun metal

Thanks for the tips! Here is some pics of my Commander standing on the Plague Marine!
(The Plague Marine is discontinued version that is no longer available that I picked up in some free swag!)

Well I painted my plague marines with a graveyard earth and other brown tones.

Well, the usual pallete for the plague marines are always the military/sickly greens, bone and brown, in addition to tons of inks.

Go whatever colour you want, as long as it looks "sickly". Green is the msot common, although I've seen brown, and flesh could look good as well, if inked brown/green/blue.

I just took a look at those pics. Very cool

@Lord_Caerolion There is a plague marine traitor legion in the chaos codex. "The cleaved" as I seem to remember, and they're painted a fleshy color. (Well, a very very light purple, and it looks quite fleshy)

Xandis2, not to offend but you use the [image]*link to picture here*[/image] (There'll be a [image][/image] link somewhere below the picture). Maybe if you edit it like that, it'll be easier for us to see your models

No offense at all, but why did you choose a Plague Marine for his "trophy"? Perhaps your Tau aren't aware of the nasty contagions that lurk on/in the average "Plague Boy", but if they don't hose that suit off with Promethium later... Could be an interesting "fluff arc"- Nurgle Comes for the Tau...

The Tau are like children, so let the child laugh at his supposed success; Grandfather Nurgle will embrace him.
