Hobby: Bigred’s New 8th Ed. Death Guard

I’ve been collecting Death Guard for a long time. My newest additions are quite nice!

I’ve been working on my Death guard for well over 10 years. You can see I’m serious with pics like these:

I Kind of Have a Problem

I can’t stop adding onto the 14th Legion. As soon as the new plastic Death guard were unveiled I knew It was only a matter of time.  Here’s the results of the latest addition, courtesy of Aventine and his talented brushwork. Matching the scheme of an existing army is a very tricky task and a rare talent.  I’m pretty happy:

The detail on the three characters is SICK!

Both an awesome model and awesome rules. I need at least 2 more.

I’m most impressed with the sheer bulk of the new Plague Marines – so much more volume than any previous versions.


The first thing I thought  was “I need more”.

    I’m impressed with both the breadth and depth of your Death Guard colletion. It is a real eye-opener to see so many dudes, and so many vehicles, and a Baneblade and a huge fortification and a Thunderhawk 😀

    You painting on the Plague Mutants (or whatever they are called) really makes them look malignant and toxic, rather than the Batman Villain Henchman look of the ‘Eavy Metal Studio paint jobs.

    Most impressive in both scope and detail.

    Those new plague marines are some crazy busy miniatures, but still pretty cool looking, thanks for sharing. I think the plague zombies are still my faves from the new wave and your scheme works well with them.

    Larry, your army is magnificent! Bravo!

    As a fellow Death Guard(30k) I love seeing the 30k Paint job on the new models!

    I’m loving all the Death Guard on BOLS today!

    Not bad, kind of clean though. I used to play chaos space marines and when people saw my plague marines, they said that they were so disgusting they were afraid to touch them. My inspiration was the nasty sinks and toilets you always see in restrooms out in the middle of nowhere in horror movies. It took ten layers of inks and drybrushing to get the effect but it was worth it. Then seventh edition came along and off to Ebay it all went. Maybe I’ll get into eigth, but not sure yet.

      “the nasty sinks and toilets you always see in restrooms out in the middle of nowhere ”

      Inspiration how and where you least expect it. Hilarious!

    That is just awesome!!!

  • I am a long time Tzeentch palyer, but have been enjoying the new deathguard in the dark imperium box and doing some minor conversions to them. The models I am really liking are the poxwalkers, they are just so easy to convert and end up looking suitably rotten. With a few swaps of arms and heads, you can get some to look like infected gene stealer hybrids or cultists, servitors, chaos cultists (from other powers) or the imperial forces (skitarii, IG, commissars and so on). I am even tempted to dig out some really old dark eldar to add to their numbers. You can never have too many poxwalkers. 😉 I am really liking the colour of the skin you have done on yours, might have to try something similar myself.

  • I don’t like the new models but well done. I think they have too many details, they are too overloaded. I think your old models are better.

    But when you remove the huge horns and tentacles the new models look really cool: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-s3wZofAdSj4/WU0_DSAicYI/AAAAAAAAC8o/guPn9qVWwOE6bx_AsONPvNcdr9MkxWoWQCLcBGAs/s1600/UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_8a67.jpg

      Wow, they do look a lot better! I can’t stand GW’s current obsession with cramming in detail wherever they can.
