Tag: Death Guard

Back to Streaming

I started streaming again on a regular basis from Monday, it was rather fun.

I painted a unit of Necron Warriors and did some work on the Caestus Assaukt Ram.

The plan is that Mondays will be my painting night and Thursdays will be video games.

But this week I will be streaming on Wednesday as the mother-in-law is taking me out for dinner!

What I Am Modelling

Decided to try and knock out the Endless Spells and get them done.

First up was the Purple Sun of Shyish and the Malevolent Maelstrom.

The Chronomantic Cogs followed next.

And then the suffocating Gravetide.

Finally the last three spells all got finished together, those being the Geminids of Uhl-Gysh, Ravenak’s Gbashing Jaws and the Aethervoid Pendulum.

I got the Flesh Hounds and thier big bow Karanak out of the way next. Had Karanak and half the Flesh Hounds since they were released, and got the second half of the Flesh Hounds with Mortal Realms.

After that I then got the Droidekas done for the Confederacy of Independent Systems Droid army.

And General Grievous followed shortly afterwards.

I also painted the barriers for Star Wars Legion as well.

I then started work on a Caestus Assaukt Ram for my Death Guard Heresy Army, which I finished tonight.

I also painted up a unit of Necron Warriors on Stream on Monday, got them all painted fine and they will be joining my ever growing legion of the ancient scythe of the Sautekh Dynasty.


So what’s coming up next week then?

  1. Legio Custodes Vertus Praetors x 3 & Shield-Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike
  2. Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii Rangers x 10

What I Am Reading

Now quite finished Warhawk, but I am getting there with it.

I did listen to the last two audiobooks in the Warhammer Adventures Realm Quest series, Fortress of Ghosts and Battle for the Soulspring.

I think I will put together a few thoughts about these in a separate article later in the week.

But there were a lot of fun.

What Video Games Am I Playing

I got BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea Episode 2 finished, it was an interesting ending, but I am not sure it’s one I was 100% enamoured with.

I have also completed Donut County, which is a very very relaxing game.

I have played a bit more Far Cry 2, which is fun but at the same time highly frustrating.

I will be starting Assassins Creed at long last this Wednesday on Twitch!

I have a planned list of games I will be playing on Twitch and here is the current list of 5 games in the queue.

  1. Assassins Creed
  2. Horizon Zero Dawn
  3. Assassins Creed – The Ezio Collection
  4. Control Ultimate
  5. Assassins Creed III

What Tabletop Games Am I Playing

Not much but I did play a game of Carcassonne: Winter Edition with the girls and Mary & Paul.

What I Am Creating

I uploaded my playthrough of BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea Episode 2, which is further up in this article.

I also made a concept video for a new show I am planing on running.

The feedback on it is encouraging so a pilot is going out this coming Sunday.

What Am I Spending

I did grab a couple of cables to allow me to plug my headset into my PC.

It’s quite far away from my seat, so I needed a long extension.

Lindsay has been quietly seething when I am in the room and watching YouTube when she is working, so I am under orders to now use headphones during the day.

I grabbed a few bits from Element Games including a Noctilith Crown.

I also bought myself the Specialists DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Gladius.

Death Guard vs Orks – Warhammer 40,000 Battle Report

In this battle report, me and Megan play a 500pts game between the Death Guard and the Orks.

I am refining the process of making these reports, and I think that I may have it about right now and a good work flow going on.

Let me know how you like it!

You can support what I do by doing any of the following:-

Schedule Sucks Still

Well my schedule is complete balls right now, it’s all over the shop and it’s really doing my head in.

I know I need it to function well, but I am having issues asking for what I need to actually keep to a scheuldule.

Lindsay’s meeting schedule is now going on the family calendar but sharing an office means I can’t do certain stuff when she is in those meetings.

The doctor has offered some great advice for helping with my sleep, which is helping to a degree, but I also need to get the days sorted out.

I dunno, guess I don’t have much else to say really.

What I Am Modelling

I started the week with a the HQ models and the MG34 MMG Team for my Bolt Action early war Germans.

I then painted up the Cultists from the Blackstone Fortress Escalation expansion.

I then began work on a Fire Raptor for the Heresy Death Guard, I have had this model for so long, originally it was intended for the Space Wolves, but plans changed.

I also managed to paint a Hexmark Desyroyer, which I must say, is the nicest model in the new Necron range.

And finally I painted three Necron Warriors that came with Imperium, this is a second set, and I have another still to do.


So what’s up next?

  1. Necron Canoptek Wraiths x 6
  2. Mechanicum Magos Macrotek Enginseer & Servo-Automata x 4
  3. Flesh-Eater Courts Crypt Flayers x 3 & Crypt Infernal Courtier
  4. Death Guard Lord of Virulence, Blackstone Fortress Plague Marines x 3 & Poxwalkers x 6
  5. Skitarii Marshall

Haven’t read much else this week, but I have started listening to Godblight by Guy Haley.

What Video Games Am I Playing

Playing a little bit every day, played a little bit of PUBG, some Flight Simulator and finished Halo 2 Anniversary.

I have now stated on Halo 3 and have made a decent way though it so far.

What Tabletop Games Am I Playing

I played through two solo games of Warhammer 40,000 to create the battle reports for the Imperium playlist.

The first video was published on Friday and you can see that in the Creating section.

What I Am Creating

The Vlog for Company of Legends went up on Thursday.

And on Friday the first battle reports for Imperium was released.

And look out for a new episode of Edge of Empire dropping shortly.

Still just backing Rawr! Velociraptor! at the $11 level to get the Greatest Hots album.

Painting Plan For The Next Few Weeks

I am headed down to Warhammer World on the 14th November to play Megan and I have set myself the challenge of taking some Death a Guard instead of my usual Adeptus Mechanicus.

Those in italics are already painted, so that gives me a list to paint of

  • Typhus
  • Plague Marines x 7
  • Poxwalkers x 10
  • Blightlord Terminators x 5
  • Foetid Bloat Dtobe
  • Plagueburst Crawler

But I do want to crack on with Niki’s Death Korps of Keieg, so in that same period I also want to do as a minimum.

  • Infantry Squad x 10
  • Infantry Squad x 10
  • Commissar x 2
  • Command HQ Squad
  • Lascannon Team x 3

Now I am away from home for 13 out of 32 days, so that’s a lot of time eaten up, but for 7 of those days I will be taking a hobby box with me, so I can work on a couple of bits whilst I am away, probably the DKK Infantry Squads and the Plague Marines.

But this is my plan for the next couple of weeks, so here is hoping I can stick to it!
