Hey Heresy,

I started putting together my own DKOK army since I have always loved the models, and after reading the fluff behind them, I had to order some up. So after some back and forth debates with my reasonable side and the impulsive side that wanted the models I broke down and ordered :

1 Infantry Squad Advancing
1 Infantry Squad At Ease
1 Infantry Squad Firing
1 Grenadier Squad
1 Company Command Squad
1 Platoon Command Squad
1 Heavy Mortar + Crew
1 Thudd gun

After consulting with Forgeworld due to some small defects and miscasts, I got another batch of

1 Infantry Squad Advancing
1 Infantry Squad At Ease
1 Infantry Squad Firing
1 Grenadier Squad
1 Thudd gun

From Forge world as replacements free of charge, effectively doubling my army. The army also has 3 Leman Russes built and primed for them, completely magnetized (2 regular russes and 1 demolisher variant)

So far I have painted up a heavy mortar, 1 of the grenadier squads, and half of an advancing squad.

Here are the grenadiers about 90% done (Need to finish the bases, and just realized I need to add regimental #'s + color the collar tabs and shoulder boards, but still pretty much done.







I will get some more pictures up tonight hopefully of everything else I have painted, and get started on another squad of men

"Clasps fingers together" mmmmm.....interestesting!

Looking really good Taggerung. Def more dirtier than my guys, looks good!

They can def be a pain in the ass with the mold lines and miscast, sometimes its hit or miss.

Why did you choose the 219th? Just curious.

Im excited to see what your going to paint next.

+Rep for the picking the best IG army hands down.

Regards,
DoE

Thanks DoE!

I actually got off real light with any problems, only 1 guy had any serious issue where his gas mask is messed up (But it almost looks like a bandage so I am going to paint it that way), but for only 2 guys with any defects in each squad, I got another 40 men so I can deal.

As for 219th Regiment, it's a regiment a distant relative was in during ww1, as well as my wife's birth month and day.

I was hoping they came off as dirty and not just poorly painted, and the help of the weathering powders I think it comes off nicely (could be wrong though!)

I think next up will be to finish the Advancing squad # 1 and get started on the firing squad. This time I am going to leave the arms off until I am done with the torso's.

I don't mind criticism either :), if there is something I can do better by all means let me know. Last time I did a project log, no one even responded, so I honestly am unsure if I am a decent painter or not lol.

I will have to look at the models when i get home, my computer at work cant see pictures, but im a little terrified to see them. They might look to cool and i might end up finishing my long waiting Steel Legion army. I am happy to hear that FW is fair and will fix any problems they may have, wish GW was like that. I may have to order the FW models i have wanted now and finish my said IG army.

Update:

I cannot figure out a good way to take well lit photo's, any suggestions??

Here are some more photo's of what I have painted and what still needs to get painted.

Here is what is assembled but is waiting the brush



Standard Bearers



Back of the heavy mortar...never realized how crooked the damn thing is



Guardsmen of the 1st Platoon second squad

















Demolisher waiting paint. It's magnetized for full customization



Vanquisher also totally magnetized



Thudd gun in construction



Grenadiers again!

Skytalon light artillery would be pretty cool. Maybe put them on a cargo pallet or something with big heavy straps around it

I'm here for 2 reasons.
1. Death Korps.
2. Is your name, perchance, a reference to a character from the Redwall book series written by one Brian Jacques?

1: Well good, Death Korps are awesome

I have seen the heavy mortars many times before, but seeing them this time makes me really want some for my traitor guard. Off to fw we go. Nice work on the army by the way.

Oh man, got shipped over to Philadelphia for a few weeks for work and as such painting slowed quite a bit. I am done with the camo scheme on 2 of my Leman Russ tanks, and I will be busting balls tonight to get it painted up and finished. Hopefully have an update tonight.

Here is an update...didn't finish it, but I did get most weathering done, and from there it's just detail work and then overall rusting effects, and to completely do the treads.

You got some awesome minis, really evil looking guardsmen! about the photos natural light is the best hands down even with spangly cameras and everything if its a light day, doesnt have to be sunny the light shows real colour somtimes the electric light tints the colours of your minis :) Keep the awesome stuff up! +rep
