Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been painting some Death Guard Terminators.
I actually enjoyed painting these more than I enjoyed painting my Plague Marines. I don’t know if it’s because they’re bigger models, because they’ve got more open poses, or just because I feel more relief at nearly finishing my army.
Much like the generic Chaos Terminators kit, you unfortunately don’t get enough weapons to equip a full unit with axes or swords straight out of the box. As a result, I decided to give the champion and specialist swords and the regulars got axes. They’re both decent weapons though, and their special rule gives them the potential to reduce their AP by 1 – so I’m not too concerned about them having a mixture.
In terms of special weapons, while the flail looks badass, I wanted these to act as a bit of an anti-infantry tar pit, so opted for the (also badass) Reaper Autocannon. That’s a lot of shots from a small, tough unit – and I can always target something juicier with the heavy weapon too. Combined with the Missile Launchers of my three Myphitic Blight-haulers, that takes the total of weapons in my army with a range of greater than 24″ up to a mighty four!
It’s not like my three Deathshroud are going to add to that either…
