A moment of laxity...

Before I go head first into my traitor guard army I wanted to know what colour scheme I am after for them. I have played around with a couple colour combinations and I think I have ended up with this scheme. I didn’t want anything too elaborate as I’m not a great painter, I just want something I can do that looks like a good gaming standard. I will probably regret this in the future but regardless, here is what I propose my traitor guard will look a bit like.

I know it’s not the right model, but I didn’t want to waste a forge world model one test so I dug out one of my old guard to be the test subject. I just wanted a plain colour for the tunic/pants and any extras like armour or hoods will be the green colour. Now I originally intended to have the green a bright green but decided later on that the more muted pate colour fit the theme better. I just seem nurgles green like a pale one, more akin to rot and disease than bright green. The flesh I’m not 100% happy with but I will experiment with it a bit more. It’s intended to be a pale colour with a bit of green so they traitors look diseased. Can’t be having healthy nurgle guard now can we? So what do you guys think? Please let me know and comment on how I can improve this before I go to town on my guard.
