The Rising Cult

Seeing as Cultists are in the Death Guard Codex, it's no surprise to see them represented in Warhammer Conquest.

I bought an extra issue of these as well to give me a round twenty and , again, some chopping and bits box diving has allowed me some small variety as well as a flamer equipped model.

Again, highly unlikely these will see paint prior to mid December.

Some new Primaris purchases to show off next.

More Variety For The Death Guard

Having picked up multiple Conquests especially some of the more recent issues with Death Guard, I've purchased some more torso and backpack bits to kitbash up some more Plague Marines.  Having had a few of the easy build versions that were converted, I've had a couple of Blight launchers unused and seeing how some of the squads are special weapons light, I've placed these with the new torsos.

Unfortunately, that real life stuff is getting in the way and it is unlikely these will see paint until late December.

Plague Marines Muster

As it's back to work soon, I thought it would be an ideal time to take stock of the Death Guard army I've collected, primarily via Warhammer:Conquest, so far.

The collection gives you a choice of Lords with Lord Felthius ( and his cohort) plus the Lord from the Dark Imperium box.

The majority of the Death Guard characters/ heroes are present starting with the Noxious Blightbringer.

I think the only hero left is the Tallyman with Typhus as the main character to arrive soon.

Below are the Death Guard Terminators that are the only main purchase I have made additional to the subscription.

A five strong squad made up of two units of Felthius' cohort. The second Plaguespitter model is held in reserve.

As mentioned in previous posts, the majority of Plague Marines I have so far have been the easy build trio or the single pose Dark Imperium models.

I have made some bits purchases and taken the modelling knife to a fair few of the models to try and add spme variety. You can see examples of this over the next couple pf photographs.

The alternate colour scheme unit along with their Bloat Drone.

Due to the £7.99 price tag, I've acquired a decent sized armoured section with three Blight Haulers, four Bloat Drones and two Plague Bursters with a third on the way from Forbidden Planet.

One Project Finished

With the chainmail paint applied, that is twenty five Daughters complete.

At present the units consist of one 10 strong squad with two 'meltaguns' and two five strong squads each with two Heavy Bolters or Heavy Flamers respectively.

I have the bits for another five Daughters remaining and I'll see what the final Sisters of Battle Codex looks like before they are built up and painted.

The Clock Is Ticking

As you can tell by the daily posts it's been holiday time but that is drawing to a close.

As such, the race is on to complete some of the outstanding projects before a three month period of reduced hobby opportunity.

The Assault Nuns are the first to be completed.  I bought some alternate fling stands for these.  The original models came with small bits of rubble for the models feet to be glued onto.  These now adorn the large base used for the Arch Angel.

As mentioned above, I have used the scenic resin bits from the assault nuns to fill out the base below.

The main base painting for the Daughters squads has been completed.  I need to complete the chainmail coating for the Fleur de Lis decorations.

The final three Plague Marines for the alternate scheme squad have now been completed. I will be trying to find time for a Plague Marine army photo over the next couple of days.
