I’ve been slowly working my way through my backlog of minis. Now that there is a new (9th) edition of 40k coming out it give me extra impetus to get a decent sized army painted. So to help that along I’ve finished off my Death Guard Terminators.
I had already painted one of the blightlord terminators for a Kill Team game so I do have a squad of five in total. They all came from the Dolorous Strain box set.
I’ve also got a little squad of the Death Shroud versions- topoled up for melee they should be fairly powerful in the game.
Unfortunately I used up the rest of my Death Guard Green so I need to wait until the shops open back up to get some more to finish off my characters and Daemon Prince. Then it will be pretty much army done.
I’ve used some of my lockdown time whilst I’m not studying to get some bit painted for my nurgle force.
First up are the Plague Marines. i tried to use a wide a selection of weapons as possible to give me options for kill team. Also I’ve enough for 3 fivve man squads in 40k.
First up we have the Champion and icon bearer.
Next the two special weapon marines: blight launcher and plague sprayer (think chemical flamer).
Then we have three close combat marines- pretty powerful when you get them into a melee fight.
The Plagueburst crawler is a great kit, lots of detail fun to paint and build- adds a decent amount of firepower to my little force.
The plan is post lockdown to start with some 500 point games of 40k and see where it goes. At a stretch I could put out about 2000points I think but I want to work my way up there first.
Whilst I had some painting mojo I got these finished that had been sat on my painting tray from well before xmas.
I wasn’t happy with my first attempt at some pox walkers so I experimented with these. a mix of GW contrast paints and normal techniques with plenty of ‘nurgle’s rot’ added for slime effects.
A bit paler than my normal style but I like them- Will do the rest I have to do like that.
