iplaythisgame's Heresy era Deathguard (Challenge Complete)

Postby iplaythisgame » Fri Jan 31, 2014 5:55 pm

Hopefully this will give me some more follow through.

I intentionally started this Deathguard army as a Pre/during Heresy era with the intention of being able to play the Chaos Space Marine Codex (newly released at the time) until the New Space Marines Codex came out. I've already have a decent size CSM list in this scheme and now I need more C:SM flavored units.

With the new Chapter Tactics this gives me even more flexibility, which I love. I love being able to bring something different to the table every game. With that said, I've chosen Ultramarines CT for this list. Which means I need a few new units.

I have a tourney coming up in March and this will help me get prepared as there is some overlap.

The list.

1x Marneus Calgar

6x Sternguard Veteran Squad
Power Fist
Combi-Grav
2x Combi-Grav
2x Combi-Meltagun

5x Legion of the Damned
Heavy Flamer
Power Fist
Flamer

10x Tactical Squad
Meltagun
Multi-melta
Combi-Meltagun

5x Devastators
4x Lascannon

999pts

February Commitment

Postby iplaythisgame » Fri Jan 31, 2014 7:49 pm

February Commitment: Sternguard

Here is the first unit. My sternguard are an amalgam of old plastic and new bits found all over the place, plus some anvil industry parts and the new tactical marine box.

The picture shows a few extra sternguard. The ones in the back row are, hopefully, along for the painting ride.

March, April and May Commitments

Postby iplaythisgame » Sun Feb 02, 2014 9:42 am

March Commitment: Marneus Calgar

My counts as Marneus Calgar.
Bits of Grave Warden, Typhon head, cataphractii claws to fists, Anvil cloak and sword.
Image

April Commitment: Devastator Squad

The Devastators. Since the seargeant is already painted, I'll be painting another Lascannon because I also play the legion list as well.
Image

May Commitment: Tactical Squad

The Tactical squad. The overlap on some from my CSM army are already painted, and most based. I'll be making up the points difference with Drop pods.

I love the combs you did on the sternguard. I know it is probably a pretty easy conversion, but I'd love to see a bit of detail on how you did it! I'm planning on doing an Imperial Fists 30k army one day, and I like combs.
