Hey peeps

I've started a Death Guard army with the models I got back when the starter set dropped, plus a bunch of bits I've picked up from here and there.
(I'm always playing catch-up. I still haven't seen he last season of GoT, or the last two avengers films. I did see The Sopranos a could of years back. Its pretty good. Give it a whirl)

I usually grow armies here there and whatever I feel like painting at the time. For this army I have a 3000 point army list that fills a Brigade. This is what I am going to build and i'm gonna try and be quite systematic about it.

These are about 90% there . . .







(I have a PLOG over on Warseer with more of my random stuff)

And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.

Thanks for your kind words good sir.

The dirty paint scheme looks fantastic on the Death Guard. Nice and aged and gritty.

Getting there. Apologies for the poor quality photos; need to set up a proper photo-thingy space again.




I'm not happy with the sword, but having tried various rust effects and glowing warp-ness I will probably just lead it slimy.

Went in a different direction with the sword on a friend's advice. Much happier with it:



Need to sort the base out and tidy up a couple of bits.

First complete squad. Two Blight Launchers and a Plasma Guns means business y'all.

I'm glad I added the blobs of slime on the base; I think it was needed to help bring out their plague-y styles.

Rhino. This was previously painted black and part of my Chaos Renegades army. That's why its fairly minimal; the cargo was a squad of fallen zombie Death Company, so it was a wrecked/repaired imperial vehicle rather than a 'Chaos' Rhino. I think it still works as Death Guard are pretty utilitarian. If I do a second Rhino I think it will be a mess of greenstuff and tentacles.

The zombie gunner will probably make more sense when I get round to rebasing my plague zombies. I mean poxwalkers.



Leftovers inside.
I love the idea of a squad of plague zombies coming out the back, but I don't think its tactically feasible.

Chaos Lord



Really happy with this guy (I love making models out of leftovers and having unique HQs). Fluffwise he is 99% of the way to either ascension or spawndom; hence the mutations and lower toughness/lack of DR in game.

For now he will be the Warlord. Can't decide between the helm or Plaguebringer sword as a relic (with Arch Contaminator of course)

Poxbringer



Not happy with this guy. Few reasons:

1) Stuck him together when I had flu and it shows; I had to add some lopsided mutations to cover up thumb prints
2) I liked the model right up until the Space Marines 3 were previewed, Now i want that Poxcaster instead.

A formal Death Guard counts as Dark Apostle (for 7th Edition Traitor Legions). I removed his mace and added a pistol.

He will lead the Plague Zombies. Revere the delicious flesh!

That takes me to a cool and tactically terrible 1000 points

Yorkright & Not Online!!!: thanks guys, your support is appreciated and helps keep me slogging on.

Speaking of which, currently rebasing 50 plague zombies



I'm sure it should be 51. I briefly tried to identify the missing model from memory. Turns out zombies are kinda samey (except for my form Delaque gang leader who is forth from the right in the front row).

His zombification wasn't a big deal. He was only a maxed experience WS/BS/Ld gun-fighting, fast shooting, smoke bomb throwing, twin sword swinging Necromunda monster.

Then he rolled double 1 on a 'sneak through the zombie tower' custom game.

It was only 5 years on. I'm not bitter.

LIES.

also, fantastic looking army. Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing that blob of yellow turn into a hideously well-painted tank.

Thank you. I'm not quite sure where to start with the blob tank, but I'm hopeful it will come together if i throw on enough washes.

I've just come back from attending my first Black Library Weekender and had a great time. People were super nice and I'll hopefully be back there at some point. In my absence my models have failed to spontaneous paint themselves. I mean, the tray was right next to them. I'm just saying.



Is it worth adding green slime to their awkward misshapen bases? I hope so.

I'm also tweaking a slightly more substantial fellow who may be peeking into the picture.

I'm done. Well I say that, but 50 zombies is just 10 short of being three units of 20 . . .

Squad 1: Skull base



I find my zombie hordes clump together and once casualties start pouring in its sometimes hard to tell which zombie belongs to which unit.

Squad 2: Dead Grass



See above. I do quite like the skulls on bases though and may go back and add some to a few Death Guard marines.

Squad 3: Too Much Slime



Did I mention the bases were a pain? The mantic zombie kit is great, but getting their feet on a standard base is tricky.
This is the 10 man unit. It would probably work just sitting back on an objective or something, but I still have some zombie models floating around. At some point I'll maybe add another 10.

Thanks guys; I do love zombies (I have 50 old skool fantasy square basers somewhere) but there is a point where it just starts to drive you mad.

So Plague Zombies (or Poxwalkers as they are now known) need a bit of Typhus love. I already had a converted counts-as Typhus for my 6th edition Renegade army. Fluff was this chap was a Death Company Terminator Chaplin who got the zombie bug and . . . went a bit nosferatu.



Yes that is a super goofy ghoul head. But its my goofy space vampire zombie dangit!

I figured I needed a new model that fitted the Death Guard range better. I decided to keep the scythe but start over.



He's not quite there yet. Needs something on top to balance the model.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
My Daemon Prince. I painted this guy a while back, but I've tied a couple of things up and repainted his base to match the Death Guard.



The lack of wings is annoying (unless he floats about with gas filled back sacks?). I'm gonna run him with a Sword and Plague Spewer (counts-as: vomit!)



This guy doesn't actually form part of my 3000 list but I'm sure he'll sneak into a few games. If nothing else I have a model for when I roll at 12 on the Chaos Boon table.


Model is from Creature Caster. I participated in their Kickstarter and actually have three other counts-as Greater Daemons somewhere. This chap was intended to be a Great Unclean One (and was during 7th edition), but given the size of the new model he is no longer quite large enough.

That demon prince just about made me jump out of my chair when I saw it. You have really did a great job painting him, if you are worried about him flying, just ask your opponent. Not to many people I know would give you a hard time about it not having wings as long as they knew it. Personally him floating around cause he is full of Gas would seem appropriate.

Thanks guys; very pleased with the Daemon Prince right up until I knocked him off the table and chipped/broke him.

Should be fixable, but currently I am in bed having been blessed by the Great Plague Father himself. I can only be thankful for the dripping a snot and rattling cough. I am not certain how being bed ridden helps me finish the army, but who am I to question Lord Nurgle? Perhaps he wants me to keep samples in Petri dishes so I can use them as reference for colour schemes?

Also Chapter Approved Rumours seem to be suggesting a lot of points drops. My 3000 list might need to work...

Been a while since I've posted; been super busy (as I'm sure we all are). It feels a little weird painting Nurgle stuff given the current pandemic situation.

Nevertheless...



Some work in progress; extra Hauler and a couple of Drones (one an eBay find which was a little damaged when I got it, but hey its Nurgle)
