I am now at seven losses to one win against Mark’s Death Guard. This is a fair old battering and I’m set on changing this! Sorry, Mark, I need to be beating The Death Guard! As this post is published (automatically) I am playing the Death Guard at Boards & Swords. Check out my Instagram for the latest pics! I have been looking back over my lists against the Death Guard – looking at Mark’s lists too. And there a couple of glaring issues with my lists now I look at them against Mark’s. If this doesn’t work – then […] The post Beating The Death Guard appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.

So at the end of may I attended the first GT pu on by an amazing local groupCOASTAL WARGAMINGThese guys really know how to get events going. Terrain was great (this is most important to note as there have been several GTs missing the mark on this lately). Missions were fun! Event was a blast. All good people and good times. No bad games or bad feelings that I experienced.Unfortunately, this was back in MAY (really before Caladius were SUPER EXPLODING. But if you look back at my unit reviews, I had said this was the unit to use and the Telemon was fading) so I forget most of the details to write up a more extensive Batrep. I do know I discussed in in Hobby Progress on last month's episode of our Allies of Inconvenience Podcast, so check that out if you want to hear more.First off my Army. I played Custodes for the event and took home Second for Painting (lost to a Wobbly Modeler using their board from Adepticon, which is an impressive thing if you've never seen it).My list was as followsCustodes Battalion- 197
Since I last updated this blog I've been chewing away at finishing up some projects that have languished on my painting table or in my bitz box. These are projects that I always meant to do, but got side-tracked from completing - I have to say that it feels really good to have these projects done.First up was a trip to Warhammer Age of Sigmar-land.These five Blood Warriors have been on my desk for an eternity, but now they areready to bring destruction to the foes of the Blood God for an eternity! These guysbring me to two ten-man units of Blood Warriors for the whole army.Staying in a fantasy theme, I decided to turn my paint brush to my Oldhammer High Elves. I've had a unit of Dragon Princes that I've been nattering away on for months - doing one model at a time - mostly because I just found painting them somewhat tedious. Its not a bang on the sculpts, I think I'm just coming to a conclusion that I really don't dig painting cavalry!These cats took way too long to get on the field, so I'm sure they will die
Once again I have played the Death Guard at 1,750 points. This time at home using the Studio Level Terran I recently acquired. This stuff is amazing and goes really well with my Valhallans.

Ciaran’s Genestealer Cult takes on my Death Guard in this 2k Matched Play game!
This sculpt is pretty nice. Despite its lack of motion I really like it. I can't quite put my finger on what I like but it's cool. I really can't wait to photograph it facing off against my Dark Angels Apothecary. It's almost like those two were made to face off against each other.
In an attempt to keep updating my blog no matter how mundane the posts will be, here are some recent projects that I knocked off my hobby desk. Oddly, these are all duplicates of stuff I've previously done. These units just help flesh out their respective armies. Ten more Pox Walkers shamble their way into the front lines of my Death Guard army.I completed another ten Pox Walkers for my Death Guard army over the course of a week, bringing the number in the force to a grand total of thirty. I painted these guys mostly with washes, snatching some time here and there to work on them in groups of two's and three's. Before I knew it, all ten were ready to roll. I really love these models - I'm sure I've said so before here. They are wildly characterful will loads of great details, but the sculpts practically paint themselves with simple techniques. These kinds of models are the best kind in regards to army painting. A real joy on every level."Prepare to fire a load of bullshit on my coordinates. Three! T
The Death Guard have shambled back onto my painting desk with a trio of Deathshroud Terminators.I'm not dead nor have I forgotten about this blog. Over the last month things have just been a little hectic with travel, some sickness, and general craziness in life. I managed to get more gaming in of late than painting, and what I've been nattering away on hasn't been stuff that'd make a super compelling blog post... unless there is a big clamor to see Reaver Titan weapon arms and I've missed it.Over the course of the last few weeks, I've tackled an elite unit for my Death Guard army - the Deathshroud Bodyguard. These guys will add some really nice punch to the melee element of my army, as well as increase the survivability of my HQs. And they are fun, corpulent balls of crazy!These guys will pair well with my Lord of Contagion, Enoch Globulus. These are great sculpts with lots of options in the kit.I'm sure the decision of doing golden scythes isn't for everyone - butI thought they added a feeling of age t
I've fallen for the favoured of Nurgle's sons. I recently purchased the Deathguard Codex because the army is growing and I wanted to know how many points it is. After the jump I'll tell the total points of the army to date and why Papa Nurgle is my new favourite faction. More after the jump

Creaking onto the blog today is this crusty old Rhino, sorry I mean trusty old Rhino. This kit has been on Games Workshop's shelves for what must be coming up to two decades. In fact, the Chaos accessory sprue that comes with the tank is even older! That's because the accessories were designed for the original MK1 Rhino kit. Rumble on over the jump and we'll chat some more about this OAP (Old Armoured Pensioner)More after the jump
Jimmy from my FLGS Battleline Tabletop Gaming (https://www.facebook.com/BattlelineTTG/) brings his Astartes to face the Death Guard in Kill Team Arena!
These three have been half finished on my desk for a couple of months now. One quick session later and they're complete! Not much to say really about them, just happy they're done and sharing them on the blog for completeness sake. There is a picture of their backs after the jump if you want to see it.More after the jump
Over the last week, Seattle saw some significant snowfall and the whole city pretty much shut-down. With work cancelled and the roads clogged, I was pretty much trapped in my home with nothing to do but build and paint models. I took it as an opportunity to knock out a commission and some units for my Death Guard army.Units of House Epidemios stand ready to assist the followers of the Plague God.On Twitter I'd seen someone combine an AdMech Dunewalker with an Armiger and I knew I wanted to do something similar, but I'd put off doing it for a while. But my copious free time finally let me get around to it.I wanted to vary up the appearance of the Armiger, while still maintaining itsbasic rules.I had two Armigers, and liked the idea of double chainsaw arms.I kept the motif of skull-covered shoulder pads on both Armigers thatI'd established on the Knight.Once I finished up the first Armiger, I decided to convert another. Originally, I tried putting the Dune Walker's hull on Armiger legs; but it was way too AT-ST
