  1. There hasn't been alot of chatter in the Death Guard forum in a while so I felt like making a thread about 10th since not much will change for us before then. Essentially I just want to banter about what we want to see for our Death Guard in 10th edition. Wishlisting as some people call it. First and foremost I would like disgustingly resilient to go back to the better 5+++. I'm not going to math hammer it all out on here but 5+++ is better than -1D overall. -1D does nothing against spammed 1D weapons and mortal wounds, about the same for 3D, and much worse for 4D+. It only shines at 2D and is more consistent at 3D. We would get our small arms and mortal wound shrug off back. I don't see this happening unfortunately. I want free wargear to end as that is just stupid. A blight launcher is better than a bolter in every aspect and should cost different. For some reason this edition wargear costs were multiples of 5 and everything ended up over costed. They can be + 1/2/3/4/5 points for balances sake. Blight launchers and flails at the higher end and plague belchers and bubonic axe at the lower end. This might happen, but it is not an issue unique to DG and DG will get a similar treatment to whatever the other factions get in 10th regarding wargear costs. Wouldn't mind small wargear changes. Adding the plague weapon to the champions powerfist would be nice. The Lord of Virulence has a plague power fist and it's cool. And if wargear is staying free, they need to give our bolters plague weapon to balance them out, otherwise there is no reason to use them. They gave us the daemonic sword on the champions this edition, I could definately see the small flavor change in 10th like plague weapon on the fists. Our legion trait not applying to our Daemon engines is so stupid. Space marines get their chapter traits to apply to their whole codex (minus servitor like units), we should get ours to apply to everything as well. I'm hoping this is corrected. Regardless if DR changes or not, it should be applied to everything in the codex. I will never use Rhino's until they get it. If you have one or two units in the codex without it they just scream "shoot me with all your 2D weapons on turn 1". They could just call it a Death Guard Rhino to have the changed rule and charge whatever few more points they want for it for balance. The helbrute already has -1D and -2D might be silly, they could get 6+++ or 5+++. Helbrutes need love in general. I would never take a shooty helbrute over a blight hauler and I would never take a melee one over the flying bloat Drone with the 12A mower. I think there is a decent chance for them to correct the copy and paste units and give them DR in 10th. 9th gave our copy and paste HQ's extra toughness and DR, so why not? I would like to see the Lord of Virulence change in 10th. He was advertised on the community page as interacting with Daemon engines and does no such thing. They should get rid of his master of destruction aura and either heal vehicles, give one vehicle +1 to hit, or maybe give him that relic rule to give Daemon engines 4++ (I love doing that with 3 haulers and giving them -1 to be hit, so hard to shift them). They probably won't do this either. Our least used elite character is the Noxious Blightbringer. He needs to give 2" movement instead of 1" to be worthwhile. Also leadership shenanigans tend to never work unless you put all your eggs in that basket. They should remove that and the -1 to psychic test and just give him a deny. Or turn him into our Chaplin and give chants (which would turn him into a HQ most likely). They will have to do something with him in 10th, I have never seen him in a list in 9th, not even hypothetical online lists. And lastly, people's favorite part of wish listing, new units. To be honest, I think we are doing pretty good. Compare us to TS or WE we are doing very good (talking about DG specific models). We have solid troops. Plague Marines are a little more elite than a normal marine (as they should be), and poxwalkers are great cheap fluffy units. Our elites are good. We have TWO different styles of terminators and both look amazing. 5 different elite characters, some who are very good. Fast Attack we are spoiled for the slowest army in the game. Haulers and drones are awesome. GW setting them to 9W to not bracket them was badass. For some reason spawns are the only non DR unit we can give DR to. I bought the gellarpox infected just for the boss and 3 big guys, perfect for 4 nurgle spawns to eventually play around with. Heavy Support we have the PBC and the copy and pastes. The PBC is probably my favorite unit. Looks amazing, had some good point drops, non line of site mortar. They even gave the entropy cannons plague weapon and changed them to 3+d3. No complaints from me about heavy supports, I usually take 2-3 PBC in every list. HQ's we have the Daemon Prince, various lords, our own sorcerer and Typhus. Not bad but could be better. So what do we need? I'm not sure. I rather see existing kits get new rules and models. I would love a new CHAOS ONLY Rhino kit (not just a loyalist one with spikes and trim). Add a couple detail pieces for the different gods. And when taken with DG it gets DR for extra points. Same thing with the helbrute. I love dreadnaughts but the helbrute model is small and rules wise could use some love. But a new rhino and helbrute model with God specific details would help out TS, WE and vanilla chaos marines. Give the TS version a spell cast or something for extra points. Seems like low hanging fruit if you ask me. Other than that I would love a reworked Lord of Virulence with Daemon Engine interacting rules, will feel like a new unit. Same with updating the Noxious Blightbringer, we could use better movement or the whole Chaplin idea (or combine the two, give the movement as a chant). But if I had to think of a brand new unit, I would say HQ. If I recall there was three different mantles lords take up. Contagion, Virulence and some third one (I thought I read this on the lexicanum or maybe it was the 8th Ed codex). I thought it was about poxes or something. If they made the Lord of Virulence more about vehicles, the 3rd Lord could be more of a psyker. Kind of like a unique sorc in terminator armor for DG. A cheaper Typhus without the poxwalker buff, destroyer hive and contagion aura, but with its own unique rule. I would still rather see a new rhino and helbrute with DR and reworked Lord of Virulence and Noxious Blightbringer rather than a new unit though. So fellow Death Guard (or maybe curious chaos) fans, what are your thoughts? What would you like to see changed or added? I know it's a long post, my cat woke me up at 3am knocking off my keys, wallet, wedding ring, medication and pocket change off my night stand and then ran off into the dark. He's definately a Night Lords player if I ever saw one.
  2. Our second unique terminator squad. Armed with both a man reaper and plague gauntlets they can reap a heavy tally, if they can get close enough Other rules are: Plague chimes (can't remember if that's the name but it's what they look like) which do something to the contagion range iirc Bodyguard they can take the hit for a character instead. What do we love about these guys?
  3. I thought I'd share my Chaos army and various WIP things, hopefully to motivate myself to get some more painting done! I have a decent sized Iron Warriors army, as well as a goodly number of Thousand Sons, which I'll get pictures of later. My current projects are a start up Emperor's Children Warband, and a force of The Cleaved. The Cleaved: I made this Plague Marine years and years ago when I had a spare blob of Green Stuff. The armour was a test piece for the new foundations, its straight Dheneb with a heavy devlan wash. He got some nice armour scores, and some weeping joints I abandoned them for a very long time, until the release of the new codex, whereupon I made a couple of plasma gunners to come later. I also have 5 of these guys that will be geting the cleaved treatment. My very first tank, well over 10 years old with an awful splotchy (but thin) nurgle paint job, back when the mark of Nurgle gave your vehicle +1AV all round. Rather than give it to the Iron Warriors, I've honoured it's heritage and dedicated it to the cleaved. The marine on the back was originally an ultramarine, but the blue wouldnt look good with the colour scheme. Green, however would, and seeing as there will probably be a few new DA players soon...and also to annoy Skink a little. The Nurglings on top need some detailing, as well as a few other bits and bobs, but I consider it table worthy after a weekend's work. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- With the new codex, I jumped at the chance to finally get some Slaaneshi marines under my belt. Noise marines with an 80's hair metal vibe. I wanted a full Sonic blaster squad, buy only had one and the blastmaster, so time to make up some stuff: Dude doing a squealy blaster solo, and regular blaster dude. You cant quite see the detail, ut they have hides/skin GS'd onto their leg armour, and regular dude has GW barbed wire wrapped around his thigh. Blastmaster and DeathKorg. You cannot have a band without a synth, so this guy got made up. The idea is that the bolter fires, gets some funky rhythm attached to it as it goes along the barrel, then hits the opponent with some music that they've probably never heard of. Noise Champion: Since squad leaders cannot currently have blasters, and in the hope that they can someday, I made something in between a combi bolter and blaster, the backpack (from the classic NM) and belt amp can also double as a Doom Siren. Smile:
  4. It's finally time to start a thread here in B&C too, brethren. My loyalist splinter of XIV Legio Astartes, known as the Echoes of Eisenstein, is a labour of love that has now taken three years and lost all brakes a while back. When I got hold of my first Betrayal at Calth set, the path to damnation was set and I knew I had to go and start a whole army of truescaled marines. There would be no respite. There would be no models left unconverted. There would be only chopping and the laughter of ever growing mountains of grey soldiers waiting for their day. Inspired by Veteran Sergeant on DakkaDakka, the spiral into endless cuts and lenghtenings had begun. From so humble a beginning...

comparison picture! So, welcome to gawk at my insanity where I'll ever so slowly go through the same process with the rest of the 150+ guys I have either unbuilt or unstripped from previous owners of 5 boxes of Calth and Prospero, scratch tanks from busted Rhino carcasses, learn how to paint through my irrational biases ("dang my steel just looks bad in true metal but brass and copper, yaaaas queen!") and occasionally create piles of terrain out of ice cream boxes and my significant other's diabetes waste. Not even joking there https://www.dakkadakka.com/s/i/at/at2/2018/5/11/29a28eef14b8eb0f1200cee0031753e2_103099.jpg https://www.dakkadakka.com/s/i/at/at2/2018/5/11/1c925d506f8f5859e95907a73260983b_103099.jpg https://www.dakkadakka.com/s/i/at/at2/2018/5/17/94358936b6f1a9b4335b0feb8a17e829_103099.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/FPST-emK9xkOGZWBmgX0j77STx_FHmDr4R9PPKq1ruYkM4akNPB1hR4AEIQZlgcZuKv3sQURm8LmyYvcGbyGvp3LRuO48LW99v6EHO-9Sf4NOR6fVF2VJM8uF5fRPzUNGtMS-nJdp-tgq3r44dhngVDY7x3w0NWbO99imJpcepVXZ9E5NKBxB7njWNTQomF5ZPpYg34l8_7IoJ9mAB9rFrBTgp-5Ho0LMwmsPxGyZZ9I4X755wnGHe0FulklbM5fdHiGb3I0YHGk1yKHRVmtZwGEQ1yUvV3qz3jAet77cM1mpJRXMi2cizeduIlVPeVxsel1ggz7HtTEjHFtLfiCfYNuJlircb84ZOr-vvotAKtTQI-X-RQlwDI5V2BC82yH5lRG-k1fWqwAGPd4Ha8Flc1QbLAwWlFD-Bpq8qqZIsnlmDpl8080U0UKSlFlaIQfe33ofQhY3FxSC6ApC2hOGQ1-8tFmeANidaWE8HkZqxuCzJVKxdL1k2syYv_dGGv4iZcu6yHbuDucKfimDtHrOFWpZ4rBhX5KJpVnwgNfwW7QC2U9t3FN-I-6_9bRT5K3ywxS95JsC96-uThVmdCFeJ_brH_8EcoEcpinL-2HBXlCyQnZ6CCV48m7a_Yhm4fiQ2PT6G0aTFa4omttKkrlwcbfHBvd2RK8=w1620-h912-no https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/0Ssx4RGNJIAvPYFx6Ok6F5amrVkJ5-jp2_77KnstQVwpc8d-zvOwkfrU_agihKzAJ__BFesdwrgNWH3uiQ08aYNBBlslTbFO43hKTRB72UwAheeq8wDUvJZA7PtOUMQq7ayxHaWGosDcnVkR8Gu6ZCVZQDW5AAZuB5JXSCmmAcNdyPSR3Atm7nEbSJhfMZoALGEfErpSYFYlnPdJfhYmes_dKKeWh5fSv55AUVjaEaKVSCSvH03-HcPu35rwaewFQYA4YgeGdShJrkiwAuK85sDKmxarNaAtO643Alt5uvTBkAv_4qlCBYep6KvPL1k0qmHh5sZHUrOlW0yyeEuKENg-LVnIjb818D8cvJCNzH3VSL-k2nsSKsSSG2e43RST5EQodjkz531viHa_6pfqvvq9vWkIEOiHQT0PtAItHqZ5LhrFJUd3gPS55rOwb1BFUCXfFmpE4IS2m_9TCGNTOX5idXBzpf6VSXKIvubVbuynLxs6HgNiZc1AxvJwtcK1ZYw0t1pPo39KlK_tmrxcVEoRxcAOKZd6jumJ2Ps_bLLSsIHq7deW2e12qkLkeBmAhYlhlg4oE_lDdLGqRfn8FxUY1RwvShQ-uZ_sakqOFt8wjXi0aXxj0jbPUQRkWMIBxqidvaAqtM9pzK68hTQA-JjuwBLnJE9i=w1620-h912-no Count the seven, brethren (and drop a comment while at it, yo!).

  5. No Rite of War, with an eye towards being the foundation for a few different types of lists. Thousand points on the nose. HQ Herald-Consul x1 [105] - Lightning claw - Standard Elite Contemptor Dreadnought x1 [195] - Gravis chainfist - Heavy alchem flamer -Multimelta Troops Tactical Squad x10 [124] - 6 chain-bayonets - 3 bayonets - Sergeant with power weapon Tactical Squad x10 [110] - Vexilla - Sergeant Heavy Support Grave Wardens x5 [250] The idea is the vexilla tactical squad sits on any home objectives, the Herald-Consul makes the Grave Wardens Line, and then they and the dreadnought head to the hardest looking thing the enemy has, with the bayonet tactical squad to back them up. Questions: Is there enough AP2? Is there enough anti-high Toughness/anti-tank? What sort of power weapon should the melee squad's sergeant have?
  6. Let's see how the whole blog thing goes. In my last WIP update, I had done some GS work. I've done more. I used a template for chainmail to get the pattern and placed it over the stripped down leather strips. Once dry, any excess was removed. The inner shoulder pads were dry-fitted and glued into place. This gave me all I needed to assemble the bodies (Mk6 included for scale). I'm a bit annoyed at myself for the one on the far left. I didn't realize that one arm went straight out like that or I would have positioned the head differently. Here are two close ups: The angle of viewing means one can't see a bit of an overhang where the torso rests on the GS ball. It is noticeable on the back, but I'm going to cover that with a tank for the flamers.
  7. Surprise is an insubstantial blade, a sword worthless in war. It breaks when troops rally. It snaps when commanders hold the line. But fear never fades. Fear is a blade that sharpens with use. So let the enemy know we come. Let their fears defeat them as everything falls dark. As the world's sun sets...As the city is wreathed in its final night... Let ten-thousand howls promise ten-thousand claws. The Night Lords are coming, and no soul that stands against us shall see another dawn. The War Sage Malcharion Hi everybody! I thought it's only appropriate to kick this thread off with a quote from Malcharion, since the Night Lords trilogy is one of the reasons why I came back to 40k. I've spent the last couple years building a modest force (I'm a terribly slow painter) and lurking around on this board, but now I've decided that I might as well join in on the fun. To give you an idea of what my Night Lords look like, here's some stuff I've finished recently. My MkIII squad, led by a still unnamed champion: And two Obliterators, the Eisenfresser: I managed to get my hands on some Gorgons a while back and I have to say, they are lovely miniatures. Naturally I just had to convert/corrupt one of them, which led to this fella: Warpsmith Hadur Cobannus Mars Ultor of the Ghoul Stars I hope you like them. There's more to come.

  8. Hi Brother Paint here, first time posting a blog and also a try to post photos from IOS devices. To cut a long story short back just before covid hit I was diagnosed with a rare version of an autoimmune disease that likes to ever so often give me a kicking, it’s has over time damaged my eyes and pancreas and other squidgy bits that make funny noises during the night. And whilst I’m lockdown and just before and after I did what every good plastic crack addict has done….. HORDE So join me on my journey if you like and give me some hints and help as I strive to finish each of my armies so they can get slapped across and off the board Ultramarines Necrons Adepta Sororitas Death Guard Black legion I’ll add a few more photos later but will put a few down atm

  16. I'm officially undefeated in 9th edition! Got my first game in this past Saturday, and boy did it feel good to roll dice. Still lots of rules to get used to and I realized just this evening that I completely forgot to use the +1 to hit ability on the Techmarine...but still. The army I took was: Terminator Captain with thunder hammer & storm shield, Warlord (All Flesh is Weakness), Automedicae Bionics Librarian with force sword, Tome of Malcador, Reforge, Psysteel, Psychic Fortress Techmarine with the Ironstone 10x Tacticals with chainsword, combi-grav, gravgun, grav cannon 10x Tacticals with chainsword, combi-grav, gravgun, grav cannon 5x Tacticals with chainsword, combi-grav, gravgun Ironclad Dreadnought with chainfist, heavy flamer, hurricane bolter Ironclad Dreadnought with seimic hammer, DCCW, 2x heavy flamers Venerable Dreadnought with twin lascannon, DCCW, heavy flamer Land Raider Redeemer with stormbolter Vindicator with stormboler Stalker Rhino Razorback with twin lascannon I played against a Death Guard army with approximately the following: 2x Lords of Contagion Malignant Plaguecaster Foul Blightspawn 10x Plague Marines 5x Plague Marines 5x Plague Marines 20x Poxwalkers 5x Blightlord Terminators 2x Chaos Spawn Rhino 3x Blighthaulers 1x Plaguedrone We played on a pretty decent urban map -- I prefer my cityfights to be really close-quarters, but we went easy to keep long-range firing lanes open a little. My opponent was ready to concede after my first turn as I did a number on army (and his dice weren't helping him at all -- I killed the Rhino and three of the Plague Marines inside died in the explosion, for example). However, since the LGS is using a 4-hour limited reservation time, we didn't really have the time to reset and start over. In any case, from my left to right were an Ironclad, the Razorback with Libby & Tacticals, Land Raider with captain and Tacticals, the Techmarine, the Vindicator, the Venerable Dread, the Stalker, the other Ironclad, and the Rhino with Tacticals. He placed an LoC, the terminators, and one small unit of PMs in reserve; the rest were deployed (again, my left to right) a unit of two drones, a unit of two blighthaulers, the two spawn, the Rhino with ten PMs, five PMs on foot, the third blighthauler, then the last three HQs and the Poxwalkers on the far side. I won't give a play-by-play, especially without pictures (I went into it planning to take photos, but the time limit we were operating under convinced me not to kill more time than we should0, but suffice to say that the combination of my lascannons and Vindicator laid out some hurt. I killed the Rhino and popped a few of its riders to boot, plus one blighthauler, a few more PMs, and some Poxwalkers. My Vindicator and Land Raider, supported by the Ironstone Techmarine and Psychich Fortress/Psysteel Librarian, took up position in the center of the table and mercilessly annihilated any infantry that got within reach. In the end, the Death Guard didn't do a lot of damage. When we had to call it due to time, I was convincingly ahead. My captain and 15x Tacticals were in the act of dragging down the LoC and Blightlords that had the temerity to deep strike in my backfield, while I had completely cleared the right flank and had an Ironclad sitting on an objective in enemy territory. We played through three turns but discussed how Turn 4 would most likely go and settled on an Iron Hands victory of 80-35. I would eventually lose the Rhino, an Ironclad (to a mulitmelta on overwatch from a blighthauler!), and one big squad of Tactical Marines, but I was giving my opponent fits with all of the saves and Flesh is Weak rolls I was making. Several times, my Tacticals rolled two sixes out of three to avoid losing a model to a 3-damage weapon and boy was I a grinning fool. I invested a lot of points and positioning into protecting my two big tanks; my opponent simply chose to ignore them and try to punch into my flanks instead. This strategy failed on my right, where my chainfist/hurricane bolter Ironclad was running roughshod (MVP right there -- he killed about ten poxwalkers, a blight hauler, the Plague Caster, and the Blight Bringer and ended up sitting on an objective), but succeeded on my left where he had five PMs, a blight hauler, and a drone against just a Razorback. I had cleared the center except for three PMs and one spawn (which was tying up my Vindicator until the Techmarine cut it apart). It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, though. I had a few bad misplays, including striding the Venerable off an objective that he was supposed to by camping (cost me some points on Primary); throwing away my last CP on a reroll in the Shooting Phase when I was saving it for the Fight Phase; and moving my Rhino-mounted Tacticals too far forward and getting them charged by an LoC who proceeded to cut them apart across two turns. All in all, it was a fun game and I can't wait to take the Firstborn back into battle!
  17. +++ Opening Officio Medicae Report +++ ++ Clearance: Zulu Alpha ++ + Disease Risk Analysis: Extremely Severe + + Designation: 'The Blight' + Transmission: Airborne, waterborne, and by touch, the Blight is highly transmissible. Initial Symptoms: Irritation of skin and eyes, loss of full range of mobility, muscle weakness, disorientation. Initial symptoms are relatively mild compared to once the incubation period is complete, and despite efforts to catch the Blight at this early stage, efforts at treatment to halt the progression to its Terminal Symptoms have thus far met with limited success. Terminal Symptoms: As the Blight takes hold, the host's body is completely rewired. Muscles undergo severe atrophy, and then subsequently explosive regrowth, causing a buckling of the spine and a irrevocably hunched posture. Skin discolours and thins, stretched across the new unnatural muscle structure. Multiple organ failure soon follows, and the disease itself takes over the failed organs' functions in keeping its host alive. Finally brain function completely breaks down, and the host loses all rationality and memory, and is overwhelmed by an insatiable desire to feast on live flesh. Known strains: Only one strain of the Blight has been identified. Lethality: Host bodies are able to survive the Blight for weeks, nevertheless its final lethality rate is believed to be 100%. Treatment: Isolate and purge. ++ Report ends ++ Well-met brothers! Here is the start of a Death Guard plog. And to kick things off, 20 Poxwalkers:
  18. Death Guard Errata & Frequently Asked Question is up here. It might be the most extensive errata so far! Being less snarky, Daemon Princes are no longer Lord of the Death Guard, which makes the second clause in Infernal Jealousy (one Daemon Prince per detachment) finally make sense and opens up the HQ slots a bit more.
  19. Hello everyone. Im really slow painter, especially then it comes to paint something for myself. I'll post here some Death Guard models i've done in pair with my wife in last year or two. This Typhus was painted for myself back in 2018 just to test color scheme and my friend asked me to paint one for him in same colors, so we decided to trade them. He got my painted one and i recived brand new sprues, that were laying on shelf for almost a year. At this time we are painting Typhus and terminators. This one is almost finished. Rusty pigments and Destroyer Hive are on the way Second will be painted in colors of my army - dark yellow with dark blue shoulders. Im still thinking how to paint his helmet - cool white or use warm bone tones.
