|Epic 30k reinforcements|
My third Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge Entry is more Epic 30k material. It's an assortment of forces, including some bits from another Legion.
|Death Guard tactical marines, with Rhino APCs in the background|
|Death Guard "devestators" - infantry with heavy weapons, with Land Raider tanks in the background|
Up first are elements of another Space Marine Legion, the XIVth, known charmingly as the "Death Guard". I find their backstory has a tint of emo-loser-teenager-sulking-in-the-basement-of-his-parent's-$500k-house to it. But at the same time, there is a humourless endurance about them that I find interesting. It continues the trend of the traitor legions generally being cooler than the dull loyalist ones. Also Byron and Dallas like this Legion, so I wanted to have a detachment of them on hand for gaming in Epic 30k with the group.
|The fellow with the back banner marks the detachment commander|
The Death Guard figures are all old-school plastic GW Epic figures from the 90s. If any of you nostalgia geeks like me are out there, you might recognize, from the original "Space Marine" game, the elements of one tactical detachment, one devestator detachment, one rhino APC detachment and one Land Raider detachment all in this batch.
|Old plastic figures from GW - monopose, but still fun|
|Love the old Land Raider models...these are from the early 90s|
|Rapier battery from the Imperial Fists|
|Ready to cut down the minions of Horus|
|Imperial Fist tanks - the one on the right is configured with extra anti-tank firepower|
|The Predator is an old-time favourite|
|Lonely tank for the Sons of Horus|
|The "Annihilator" version of the Predator tank - lots of anti-tank energy weapons on the vehicle|
Overall there are 60 infantry, three crew-served guns and 11 vehicles, all in 6mm, which should net me another 55 points if I have the math correct (always a big "if") toward my overall total goal of 1000 points, as well as my sci-fi duel and my 30k duel. Brushes are down for now as I kick back on vacation. Have a happy New Year everyone! Stay tuned for more in the New Year...
