Death Guard Update & Status Sheet

I tend to run a lot of 'multi-wound' war machines in my Epic Death Guard forces so decided to do a war machine status sheet to keep track of damage, void shields and blast markers on multiple gribblies at once. As this required a photo-shoot to have photos of the actual units on the sheet, I took the opportunity to do a group shot of all the painted models.

So, group shot!

Status sheet:

Death Guard Winter Warmer Progress

This Saturday I headed ninety miles up the road to Vanguard Wargaming in Bristol, for the Epic UK Winter Warmer. As always, a deadline is wonderful for getting painting done and I was prompted to make another Defiler and to get more paint on the existing models.


Defiler Seven

I started off with a couple of ideas based on Plaguebearer torsos on top of machines but ended up with no torso at all on the final model.


Epic Nurgle 'Cryxhound' Titan Painting

Following on from the conversion blog post, I've now started slapping paint on the Plaguehound conversions.

The first step was to break up the flat plane of the bases, for this I used some fragments of wall for scale and Platicine to add some hillocks.

Epic Death Guard Assemble!

The Death Guard are starting to come along pretty well, which is a good thing as I've got a bunch of games lined up this coming Saturday...

Epic Death Guard - More Defilers, Infestation

Woo paint! Last week I managed to get some paint on some of the Nurgling Infestation and a test of one of the Plaguebearers. Lots of washes and glazes, they were really fun to paint.


Construction - Epic Defiler and Infinity Szalmandra

In the last couple of weeks I started getting paint on the Epic objectives and the swarm:


Epic Death Guard - Objectives & Nurglings

Following on from yesterday's blog post, I've been basing up a proxied 'Plague Zombie Infestation' and working on some objective markers.

The models for the zombies infestation are a mix of Space Marine-era Nurgling piles, some early Eighties Citadel C29 Creepy Crawlies range scorpions and some leech/centipede models from an unknown manufacturer - picked up at a games convention at some point. After trying out how they would look on 20mm ply discs I decided to go for 25mm discs instead as it would make the lips of the built-in bases easier to hide.


Epic Death Guard - Contagion Engine Conversions

It's been a while since I played Epic regularly but Epic Armageddon is seeing a bit of a revival at the club, so I've dug out the remnants of my semi-painted Nurgle forces.

To go with the painted Death Guard stands so first new addition will be a formation of Contagion Engines for some long-range firepower. Inspired by mageboltrat's excellent Bombard conversions that appear in the Epic UK army list PDF I decided to do my own conversions rather than tracking down some of the old metal catapult models.

Yet More Scenery, OceanBlue Update

I was walking through the local newsagent the other week and saw this mysterious package attached to a magazine:

Turns out it was a 1/72nd scale die-cast Chinook, part of a collectible helicopters magazine. As I'm always on the look out for more things to clutter up an Infinity battlefield and a Chinook is just the kind of old work-horse design I can see Ariadna using, I picked it up for the princely sum of £7.99.

Miniature Monday - Monster Truck Edition

After a very busy period I've applied paint to something for the first time in well over a month, and almost the fist blog post in that time as well...

Using a new technique, I think picked up from a comment by Precinct Omega, this was a cheap plastic truck picked up from a charity stall at a fair. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo before any work started but on the right you can see what colour it used to be - a bit too obviously a toy:
