This was surprisingly a fun model to build and paint. Very heavy, though. One thing Im not happy about, is the autocannon barrels. Look at them with naked eyes, and they look good and matched up. Most pics of them, however, look all misaligned. Bah.

Ill be honest. Mortarion intimidated the hell out of me. A Primarch model, and my slap-happy painting style? Yeah.....
Still, I am happy with how he turned out. He isn't pretty, but he matches my army.

One of the first kitbash models I did for my Death Guard, a Centurion/Legion Champion. Id gotten a spare set of Deathshroud models, and I decided I only wanted a unit of seven, so the spares were, well, going spare. So, this was the first shot at building a Consul.

Here is a special bit of heresy... A Death Guard Librarian. Now, how do I justify this special bit of crapping all over the accepted canon? Did you read the quick read "Daemonology"? Basically, Mortarion realizes he needs to learn more to stop daemons, and destroy psykers. A LOT more.
What isn't said, but something I'm assuming, is that he is going to teach some of his "gifted" Legionaries how to shut down daemons and psykers themselves. Mortarion can't be everywhere at once! So, I created the Occult Binder. Not there to use psychic powers themselves, but to shut down those who do!
The model itself is a stock MkIII resin, with a Grey Knight force staff. I just cut the skull out of the center.

Here is one of the other models in MkIV armor, a Betrayal at Calth Chaplain. Originally, I was planning on giving him the usual bone white armor, and a black cape, but then I remembered the Chaplain character from the quick read "Distant Echoes of Old Night", and went to reread that. Yep, black armor! His crozius and collar are a light brighter gold than would be expected for the Death Guard, but Im thinking he is still new to the Order, and they were recently gifted from the Word Bearers.
Yeah, that is it....

Here is an abnormality in my current collection: an unfinished Death Guard model. Why am I sharing it, then? Especially since I am writing this roughly 2 months before posting? Because I simply can not decide how I want the banner to look. Eventually Ill add stuff so it doesn't look like the stereotypical French joke.
Another abnormality is that he is in MkIV armor. As of writing, I have exactly 12 models in this army wearing that type. Ill likely add mode sooner or later, but for now, its veterans and command staff.
