Mk1 Death Guard Rhinos

...or double the fun part 2... :P

hello once again and this time I have another WIP update of my almost finished (the construction part) Death Guard Army!

I must say that I have managed to create the feeling of the army that I wanted and I am really happy with that.

This time I have my 2 Rhinos to share, primed and ready to be painted. I tried to make them as similar as possible, using of course a variety of bits with the most important one, the dozer blade taken from a small company (follow the link). I must say that I'm not very satisfied with the quality of the cast, but I love how it feels on the model so I can oversee some miscasts ...

More to come as well as a group shot of the army as I am preparing them for painting! :)

Finally, a great cover to an all time classic song from an all time classic band :) (I hope that this made some sense in a way :P )

Death Guard Pre-Heresy Terminators WIP

It has been a very busy week for my Death Guard project and I must say that it is coming along nicely! So far I have finished assembling and converting my Land Raider, a Razorback, a Predator the infamous Captain Nathaniel Garro and my latest additions to my evergrowing force is my first Mk2 Crusade and Mk3 Iron Armor Tactical squad (closeups will be uploaded when I'm done painting them) and my pre heresy assault Terminator squad.

These are extended conversions using the old plastic Terminators as a base, chopping off anything not needed, the heads are from Chapterhouse studios, the shoulder pads and the thunder hammers are from Maxmini (I love those guys :P ) and finally the shields are from Paulson's games and the bases from Micro Art (phew ...)

Ready to be primed :)

And here's a group shot of my army so far! Aint they cute?

As always your comments and remarks are always appreciated!

Inspiration for these guys came out of a band I recently discovered, picturing the silent death that Death Guard used to be in the pre heresy days

Captain Nathaniel Garro WIP

Hello once again!

I have been working on some new army lists to play and I have decided to change my gaming style completely. On to the drawing board again and this time I decided to create a sternguard based list with Pedro Kantor.

This list works perfectly with the Death Guard project I'm currently working on so all I had to do is to find a model to represent Pedro Kantor.

I have always been a HUGE fan of Nathaniel Garro. I love its tragic figure and the way it always was an alien part in the Death Guard legion but at the same time a stern and devote soldier to the Emperor and Mortarion. Follow the link to read more about him!

It was a great opportunity to field him as a Kantor "count as", only problem was that I needed him to be WYSIWIG which was a little against the fluff.

In the end I decided to use a magnificent model, part of the masters of the chapter set mostly because of its stern and stoic pose and its MkIV armor and the broadsword that was a part of Garro's fluff.

On the other hand, I needed to show the power fist and the storm bolter that was part of Kantor's arsenal. The fist was already part of the model I chose so that was easy. The storm bolter was created using a plastic storm bolter and an ammo feed belt I had in my bits box (yea, I know, my bitz box is kinda big :P )

Last but definitely not least, the eagle above his head, protecting him from the enemies! This was a conversion that I did using various bits from the Dark Angels upgrade sprue. It serves both the fluff and the Iron Halo rules that Kantor has!

I forgot to take a photo of him before he was primed though, I hope you can get an idea of the various conversion work done.

So there you go, I would really like to hear your comments as always! :)

I got a real laugh with Weird Al's latest album... XD
