The Pledge 2016

So at the start of last year I said:
"My pledge for 2015 is:
  1. Complete repainting my Death Blades in both 40k and Epic.
  2. Figure out what I am doing with my Epic Death Guard and get them done.
  3. Finish painting one other army.
  4. Commence painting my Old Lead Undead.
  5. Roll up and model 40k and WH warbands from ROC:The Lost and the Damned.
  6. Play at least one game of Epic, 40k, RoC and Warhammer (hopefully 3rd).
  7. Spend no more than $300 on models, paint and other loot."
And lets see how I went...

Dark Future!

While looking inside old bags in my parents shearing shed, I found this!
That's right, it isn't an old fleece, some flyblown crutchings or bailing twine, but the much more geeky Dark Future box. What a treat!

Epic Cybernetica

I've had these old Epic Colossus robots painted for quite a while now, but never got around to adding them in to any of my armies.
After rediscovering my old titans in storage I decided to paint them as an addition to my Legio Mortis force.

Legio Mortis Reinforcements

So after about a decade in storage I cracked open my old Space Marine box. It felt like Christmas had come early! Inside I found all sorts of metal and plastic treasures, including a little box of chaos titan bits; and look what was in there!

Epic Legion Tactical Detachment with Praetor.

A Death Guard Legion Tactical Detachment deployed ready to engage. This formation is led by a Praetor, and is further supported by heavy support squads. Note that while the formations individual squad sizes are smaller than standard (a result of battlefield attrition), the formation remains fully combat effective due to the proficiency and resilience of the Death Guard Legionnaires.

Behold! The Wrathchild!

A Goth Class Reaver Titan with a particularly aggressive machine spirit, the Wrathchild is treated with suspicion, and on occasion hostility, by the tech priests that maintain it, having earned a reputation of having a vicious and uncontrollable nature. However in the eyes of the Necromundan gangers it fights alongside, who have similar traits, the Wrathchild is respected and awed above all other titans in the battlegroup.

Death Guard Epic Infantry : WIP

I have based up my new MKIII and MKIV tactical squads (plus some hangers-on) for my 6mm Death Guard so thought I would post some work in progress pictures.

My Epic Death Guard Strategy - For 30k and 40k

In my continuing quest to have Epic armies for all my 28mm armies I am currently having a good hard look at what I want to achieve for my Epic Death Guard. I have quite a few old epic models in storage, and also have some newer ones that I have been lucky enough to come across, so thought it was a good time to work out what I wanted to achieve for this collection.

I tried to think about what makes a Death Guard army "Death Guardy". Once I would have simply said "Lots of blokes with bolters and nothing fast or long ranged" but that has been superseded by the more recent, more detailed (and far less lame) Forge World Heresy works.

Vehicle Damage Markers

Continuing my theme of wargaming aids made from things you shove in your ear I came up with some vehicle damage markers for epic games.
