Hello everyone, Sam here, it has been a while since I have posted on here and wanted to share what I have been working on. My first loyalist (shudder) army. Also my first guard army.
Over the past 10 months or so I have been slowly building and painting a Death Korps of Krieg army using the seige of Vraaks book. I have been attempting a unit a week but like we all do my attention and attitude towards painting blows hot and cold.
I was origionally drawn to Krieg due to their post apocalyptic / menacing appearance and thought that they would be perfect for a renegades army. However the more that I read and planned the army, the more interested in the Krieg themselves that I became. This lead me to my first order of death riders and the other more krieg units. This is not to say that i wont experiment with renegades as i have found some wicked looking zombie krieg models that I may incorperate in the future. I expect this army to play in a totally different style to those I currently use and look forward to the challenge of learning another armies strengths. I have played 4 test games with these whilst painting (i could not resist) and they did not do that well, i am hoping with a fully painted army the dice gods may favour the army more!
This post will show pictures of every unit in my army, as well as a few brief comments on what I thought/how they were to paint. The tanks were primarily painted using a neo for iwata airbrush and everything else was painted using games and gears series brushes.
I hope you enjoy my work and please feel free to ask me any questions. I am very happy with how they all look and i must admit quite happy the project is over as it has taken me so long to do this.
So the army uses a death rider deatchment with allied fortification.
Doing so gives me access to 4 heavy support and 4 elite choices as well as the horses becomming obj sec.
I wanted to make him stand out so using paper and pva glue made a banner for him with the groups name on, the regiment number is on the other side.
I have also painted up a commisar general which I will occasionally use.
My third and final hq is a company command squad.
Not part of the krieg army but will be used in a small guard allied detachment but here is my rogue psyker (primaris psyker)
I have a rather crowded elites section, I think artillery look fantastic and wanted to paint up quite a few. For now I will have to settle for these.
Also in the elites section is my hades breaching drill and engineers.
For guardsmen I have used both infantry models and grenadeers from the Krieg range. I will occasionally use the latter in their origional capacity but i chose them so that the units looked different and quite frankly I prefer the models.
The name alone is intimmidating and awesome, the model is fantastic and the rules are down right filthy! If i was on a mission to have no friends I would own three. Alas i must be content with the one......for now. My only complaint was the amount of flash that I had to dremmel. Gun and loading arm magnetised for transportation
Ever one of my armies has different plasma effects. I did not want blue on blue for krieg so went for a hot look.
So that is my death korps army. All transfers and stencils were using using fallout hobbies fantastic range! I will endeavor to get a photo or video batrep up in the summer and in the mean time work on my nurgle army. There will be another similar post soon with my nurgle army, complete with daemonic incursion formations once i finish painting the rotswarm. As well as an update on how my iron warriors are progressing in 30k towards the end of summer (sons of horus allies :D)
A big thank you to bruce for the use of his light box and photography skills for taking the pictures.
