From the Shed: Plague Marine Kill Team.

The aforementioned tournament was to be 125 points so I thought hard about what to take. I decided to go with a small but powerful team dedicated to the Chaos god Nurgle. A terminator leader and 5 marines. The pox walkers proved to be a failure in 2 practice games out of three so I decided not to take them.

My leader in Terminator armour.

I painted all the Plague Marines that I owned – seemed the sensible thing to do.

tt3

Plague Marine with Bolter and knife.

tt4

Plague Marine with Blight Launcher- my favourite weapon, it’s rather powerful.

tt5

Plague Champion with power glove.

The figures were a pleasure to paint- their 3D CAD designs made them rather detailed but easy to paint. A coating of the GW technical paint ‘Nurgle’s Rot’ adding a nice finishing touch at the end.

Cheers,

Pete.

    Excellent work- just the right size for a weekend painting project but the rulebook is daunting for us old-timers!

      There is a really good playsheet (unofficial) out there that really speeds things up- I can send you a copy if you want? It is so good when I show it to people they always ask if they can keep it.

      Cheers,

      Pete.

  6. Impressive lot Pete, the Blight dude’s helmet’s eye holes are scary good. As usual you did a great job, but the bases are worth a separate mention as they really help make them all so special.

      Thanks Mark, appreciated. I made the decision to base all my SF stuff like that to tie the collection together and make it look different to all of my historicals.

      Cheers,

      Pete.

    The plaguies look great. I remember how motivating it used to be when I was a store regular and I’d always be trying to finish something for that week’s game or event.
