As I plan heading off to a 1250pt Deployment Zone TV invitational tournament called King of the North to be held at Element Games in mid-January, I had a realisation.
I hadn’t added that army to my list of things to do because it was done, except it wasn’t. Over the last 20 years I’ve collected that faction, but never played them as a mono list. They’re always been fielded with Chaos Space Marines, so to make a battle forged battalion I needed a few more units, which has meant adding in the following:
- 8 more bloodletters – I built units of 10 each with standards and horns but running blobs larger than 10 you don’t need more, so I wanted to have extras to play WYSIWYG.
- 3 Bloodcrushers – plan is buy something built and base painted and lightly finish
- 1 Skull Cannon – plan is buy something built and base painted and lightly finish
They’ll be joining the Flesh Hounds (which all need rebasing – half way through that now) and the Bloodletters and Characters to make up the army.
I’m on the fence with the parade / dress uniform winged helms. This one was already painted when I picked up the model so I’ve only made a few changes to make it fall in line with the 19th.
The Skull Reapers shun the crimson red wings of their brothers in other companies within the fallen chapter.
The new Chaos Space Marine figures have been out for a while now and I thought it’d be good to add a few into the ranks of the 19th Company. Here’s the first half of a new 10 man squad.
I’ve been reading the Night Lords omnibus courtesy of the Black Library recently so will take some inspiration from this in making the squad a diverse mixture of armour types.
There’s a further 10 man squad of the new figures in base coat and another 10 on the way via a Shadowspear boxed set.
I decided to make all of my 8 marine squads up to 10 so have started adding to the ranks. Here’s a couple more Assault squad troops.
That took far too long as I have been spending time working on the eldest son’s Bad Moon Orks and the youngest’s Blood Angels, but finally finished the 5th Night Lord Havoc for the new squad
Managed to get another two of the big gun wielding marines completed, just one more to go now…
So after a fair bit of procrastination I picked up age uber hell hound and built it up. I reckon that’s quite enough dogs of war for now – lots of rebasing work still to do on the rest of the pack.
