Default Rumour Control's Death Korps of Krieg

Hello all! Ive been meaning to do a project log for my death korps of krieg for a while now and have only just got around to doing it. I will try to post updates weekly but sometimes this may not be possible with work and family commitments.

Ive been into the hobby for around 15 years, dipping in and out a couple of times. Ive never really been a big painter but its suprising what a little extra effort can reward you with.

Ive been collecting this army since april 2010 and at the time was looking for a new army to collect. Imperial guard were the still the big thing around here since thier codex was redone but i wanted somthing a little different. I picked up a copy of IA5 part of and after two days of reading i was hooked! The death korps of krieg were the army for me!

So here are a few pics of my army to start things off... (sorry the light box is a bit shabby)











I'll post more pics in the morning, time for bed.

Morning all. Im going to do a full list of all i have and what the current progress of the unit is.

Here goes...

HQ
Company command squad (finished)
2 commissars (finished)
Quatermaster and retinue (built)

Elite
3 thudd guns and crew (built)

Troops
2 platoon commands (finished)
8 infantry squads (firing, advancing at ease, finished)
2 mortar teams (1 built, 1 unbuilt)
5 engineers (finished)
5 engineers (finished)
Mole launcher team (finished)
2 hades breaching drills (finished)

Fast Attack
3 hellhound variants, magnetized weapons (1 finished, 2 basecoated)
1 death rider (christmas present from the mrs, unbuilt) i think he needs 9 more friends, he looks lonely.

Heavy Support
Full leman russ tank company 1 vanquisher commissar tank 3 demolishers 6 leman russ battle tanks (1 finished, 2 need weathering powders applying the others need transfers applying, oil washes and weathering powders)

2 Bombards (weathering powders need applying)

2 medusa artillery guns and crew (built)

6 basilisks (need stripping and repaint)

Super Heavies

Steel fury Baneblade Company 66th tank regiment, 9th heavy company
3 baneblades (Transfers, oil wash and weathering powders need applying)

14th Titan Hunter heavy company
3 arkurian shadowswords (new transfers and weathering powders)

2 Macharius vulcans (need stripping and repaint)

2 Warhound titans (unbuilt)

Reaver titan (magnatized, painted needs weathering)

I think thats it! As you can see i have plenty to go at!

There are a few things that need finishing (i blame the badab war part 2 campaign weekend last weekend for that!) but by the end of the year id like to have it all done. At my local store they are doing a tale of war painting competition so ive got 5 weeks, im going to aim to get the medusas and thudd guns finished for that and im gonna try and get a couple more infantry squads to make it 100 Kriegsmen and then 2 gorgons to ferry them around in in apoc games. I also need a few heavy weapon teams but this will be all to come in the next few months. Ill try later and put some pics up of more of my stuff.

Many thanks for reading.

Thanks for the kind words !

@ Hellados: Thanks! I have no sponsons on my russes because of
A: I dont like the look of sponsons on non super heavy tanks.
B: Not many of the IA Krieg books (5,6,7) have any pictures of russes with sponsons so i was trying to keep it real.
C: It soon ramps up the points value of the tanks when you start adding sponsons, cheap and cheerful is the way i play, if they get blown up, i wont lose any sleep over a 150pt russ.

@ Oldman78: Thanks again, yes maybe a few , but they are worth it and its took me 2 years of buying, building and painting to get to where i currently stand with them.

I really need to get my finger out and get some of these finished. I'm also going to try do some battle reports for them, (if i remember to log it all down) because i really enjoy playing with them and want to try share my experiences with others.

Many thanks again.

Wow...That is awesome so much super heavy goodness. How has the reaver played out in Apoc? It looks like it would be awesome especially with that loadout (How I would do mine as well, though the volcano cannon looks awesome)

Yes the reaver is a beast. It doesnt like greater daemons or the larger forgeworld ones, they tend to pull it to bits and throw it around like a kids toy unfortunatly.

Anything else just gets blown to pieces.

The last game i played it did over a shadowsword with the laser blaster, 32 marines with the gatling blaster (in 1 turn) and i forgot to fire the apocalypse missile launcher!

Its an amazing bit of kit. The best bit was building it by far, such an amazing kit, i still have to paint the crew though.

The volcano cannon is good but its only 1 shot, still one of my favourite weapons in the game though.

I need to get some more non apoc units at sometime soon, weapon teams are first on the list.

Thanks for looking and reading.
