Death Guard


House Epidemios Armigers

Hail, hail! The Gang is all here!This week, I built and painted a third Armiger War Dog for my Death Guard army. I've realized that my force has struggled with fighting armored units in the past, and leaning into some support in the form of some Armigers will probably help mitigate that deficiency a bit. Plus, in terms of simple math - a third Armiger brings me to 200 Power Levels for my Death Guard and their allies.I've tried to make each Armiger unique in silhouette, and for this one I decided to remove the armsand move the weapons to a top mount. As usual, the GW Skull kit was amply raided to add a new head and plenty of trophiesacross the hull.Hopefully, the auto cannons on this version will give me real long range punch and allow somemore variety in the units that I choose.I think completing this unit will let me put a bit of a pin in my Death Guard army for a while. I'd like to play some more Apocalypse games with it, as well as maybe some narrative 40k games. I'm in the midst of choosing my next b

House Epidemios Knights and More Death Guard

A new Knight, The Corpsegrinder, joins the ranks of the traitorous House EpidemiosNot too long ago, I was given the new Chaos Knight kit from Games Workshop by my buddy Marky. When the model had been previewed, I was interested but just couldn't justify sinking the cash into another Knight. As Fate would have it though, Marky picked one up and then realized he had little interest in painting it so with a stuttering "Y-y-you sure?" I became the owner of a second mini-titan. Not one to do things the easy way, I knew I had to convert it a bit to keep in theme with my other House Epidemios units. While I didn't go as crazy as I did on the first Knight, I did end up spending a little cash to get some parts that I thought would really spruce the joint up - so to speak. Additionally, I knew that I wanted this Knight to be primarily anti-infantry as my other Knight was definitely kitted out for busting tanks. So, I grabbed some parts from the first set and worked on making them fit the new one.Corpsegrinder - Re

Beating The Death Guard

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.

Siege the Tower GT- Custodes Coverage

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

Mixed Bag 16: Clean Up on Aisle 16!

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

Shambling On...

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

Deathshroud Terminators! I LIVE!!

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
