Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been taking a break from painting Death Guard Green; by painting some Death Guard, green.
I (im)patiently waited for these guys to come out after I picked up the Death Guard codex, and was most annoyed that it was several months before they were finally released. To add insult to injury, I only managed to pick up two of them close to release, and had to wait nearly three months for the third one to arrive!
That’s enough moaning, though.
They were very easy to put together (as they should be, being ‘Easy To Build’ kits), and fun to paint too. They’re a firm fixture in my Death Guard lists now, and barring one Reaper Autocannon in my Blightlord unit, their Missile Launchers are my only source of ‘long range’ (over 24″) firepower! I love their versatility, and they’re really fast too – which helps with getting the Linebreaker objective and munching enemy troops quickly.
I’ve only got 17 models left to paint for my Death Guard army now (7 Plague Marines and 10 Terminators/characters), so I’m hoping to get them painted over the Summer months so that they’re finally out of the way. Just in time for the new Ork codex arriving, I hope…
