Looks good. Tartaros pattern is my favorite Terminator pattern and they do look good with the claws.

Life's been a little hectic the last few weeks. But, that doesn't mean painting hasn't happened!

I've settled on a final army list for my Death Guard, which looks like this:

Death Guard Battalion Detachment:

HQ- Lord of Contagion
Cataphractii Plate, Plaguereaper, Fugaris' Helm, Warlord (Arch-Contaminator trait)

HQ- Malignant Plaguecaster
Bolt Pistol, Corrupted Staff

ELITES- Plague Surgeon
Balesword, Bolt Pistol

ELITES- Tallyman
Plasma Pistol

ELITES- Blightlord Terminators
5 Blightlord Terminators. One Reaper Autocannon, Two Combi-Bolters, Two Bubotic Axes, One Balesword, One Great Plague Flail. The Champion has a combi-plasma and Balesword.

ELITES- Deathshroud Terminators
3 Deathshroud. Manreapers, Plaguespurt Gauntlets.

TROOPS- Plague Marines
10 Plague Marines. The Plague Champion has a plasma gun and power fist. One model has a plasma gun. One model has a blight launcher. All other models have boltguns.

TROOPS- Plague Marines
10 Plague Marines. The Plague Champion has a plasma gun and power fist. One model has a plasma gun. One model has a blight launcher. All other models have boltguns.

TROOPS- Plague Marines
9 Plague Marines. The Plague Champion has a plague sword and plasma pistol. Five models have bubotic axes and plague knives. Two models have great plague cleavers. Two models have bubotic axes and maces of contagion.

TRANSPORT- Rhino APC
Combi-bolter, Combi-melta

HEAVY SUPPORT- Plagueburst Crawler
Rothail Volley Gun, Entropy Cannons


It's pretty simple, really. The Terminators and the Lord of Contagion deep strike into somebody's face and put pressure on turn 1. Turn 2, the assault squad in the Rhino (which also has the Tallyman tagging along) gets stuck in, further forcing aggressive responses rather than addressing the actual battle line. The actual battle line-- the plaguecaster, the surgeon, the plagueburst crawler, and the two ten-man plague marine squads that are backed up by the sorcerer's buffs and the aura ability of the surgeon-- closes the noose each progressive turn by continually advancing, stopping only on objectives as necessary or to cover the assault of the lord and the terminators that are rampaging through the enemy backfield. Now, it's not a lot of models and won't do well against hordes most likely due to just sheer function of volume of dice, but against any other mid-range to elite army, it'll lay serious hurt down. And it does it without needing Mortarion or Typhus to do it-- although I certainly do have them handy for larger games as well as a Drone and a mess of Poxwalkers. The bases match my Black Legion army so I can pull Cultists as needed, as well.


Anyway, this is what's done at the moment that hasn't been shown earlier in the thread.

All looks good. The death guard list strategy seems exactly how DG should play! Pin them down with elites and the slow inexorable walk to oblivion!!

Saw your Contemptor dread on the first page, that seems to be in Luna Wolves coloring. But I noticed it had an Imperial Eagle and that left me wondering. Wasnt only the Emperor's Children allowed to wear the aquila pre-heresy?

That's my understanding from the HH novels, but that could be wrong.






On a related note; I flicked back onto the first page to look at what Brother Lucian was talking about and then ended up flicking through all the pages to get back to here....


In four years your painting has improved so much! (not that it was bad i mean, just that the models you post up now are frikkin epic and the ones before were pretty good.)


Its nice to look back over peoples different pictures. I am terrible at remembering to take pictures; I'm just not a natural photographer.




Props dude.

Sons of Horus, but yes. And you're right-- but the models predated Forge World's production of Horus Heresy Contemptors.

One of the things about painting the Death Guard is that the drying times are absurd since they're being done almost entirely with glazes and washes. So, I've been working on this squad of Lions Rampant Hellblasters with heavy plasma incinerators during the drying periods for the Death Guard units. I finished the five-man squad today. Except for one base, which I realized only after looking at the picture. Oops!

Now that we've gotten over the hurdle of the holidays, I've had a minute to breathe and to do some catch-up work on painting. I've come to the discovery that Intercessors are king these days, and as much faith as I have put in Tactical Squads over the years, the basic Tactical Space Marine is not sufficient to the demand on Space Marine battle line infantry. The game is balanced against the Intercessor, not the Tactical Marine-- and while Primaris Space Marines certainly aren't just simply better than their regular counterparts, unless you're trying to play a numbers game with the army or bring the minimum for a Battalion Detachment, Intercessors are about twice as effective.

So I've been working away at painting up 40 or so Intercessors, and the first squad of ten is done.

A squad of Inceptors has been added to the 9th Devastator Reserve. The Lions Rampant assign Gravis Armor and heavy weapons to Devastators, not Assault Squads, so it made more sense for Inceptors to be drawn from the Devastator Reserve rather than the Assault Reserve.

Looking sweet as always!
But due to the angle of the photo. The first one looks like it’s the first time he’s used a jump pack. And the one on the right ( my fave) looks like he’s blasting plasma while lounging on an invisible couch. Great stuff dude.
