New Daemon Blog

I have been working on a 40k Nurgle Daemon army over the past month or so, so I decided to start a blog for it.

I started the army because I joined a Tale of Four Gamers contest over at that is being held by my local 40KFC chapter, the Ordo Fraternitas. Two of the other members are doing Space Marines and Blood Angels, I am not sure what the fourth guy is doing as he did not show up for the first battle.

My first 500 points consisted of a Great Unclean One and two units of 10 Plaguebearers. Below is a picture of the painted 500 pts.

I had a lot of fun painting this army, and it is a pretty simple painting scheme. I primed all the models black, then base coated them with bubonic brown. I gave them a wash with a thinned down green wash, and after that dried, I overbrushed them with more bubonic brown. Next, I washed then with a thinned down red wash. Finally, I overbrushed them with rotting flesh. Simple, but effective due to the color layers that show through.

Here are close up pictures of the Great Unclean one.

The battle we played with the first 500 points was a three-way Carnage battle, with three of the armies playing against each other. I lost the battle, I guess because I inspired the most fear. It did not help that my first 10-man plaguebearer squad that arrived on the table got assaulted by the entire 500 pts of Assault Blood Angels. Needless to say, they did not survive. The second plaguebearer unit to arrive was assaulted by only some of the Blood Angels. The Great Clean one survived the battle as no one wanted to get close to him. It was a lot of fun.

Even though I lost the battle, I did get voted best painted army.

I am already done with the next portion of the ToFG which is an addition 350 points for the army, plus we had to do three army themed objectives. I will have to wait to post pictures of that.
