The Battle for Avignon Primaris (part #237)

T'other day, I met up with Chris for a pre-Xmas game of 40k. Fairly small scale. 1250 points of my Death Guard & Word Bearers chaos marines vs his Snakebite orks. It was a great bit of fun.

Here's some pictures of what went down on the mean streets of Avignon Primaris...

Two boar trukkz careen down the streets of Avignon

I love these trukk conversions - great fun!

A squad of Death Guard marines discover "nothing of note" for 3 Victory
points in the shell of a bombed out building.

In what is now a traditional face off in our games, my
Possessed brace themselves to face off against a trukk-
load of Ork Nobz and accompanyin Pain Boy.

Another squad of Death Guard marines shelter by an abandoned
Bane Blade.

The Pig Mek's Cyboar Riderz roar through the wreckage of a downed
Valkyrie. Unfortunately, several of their number fail dangerous terrain
tests while attempting "jumpy trickz".

Captured by servo-skull, here we see a Death Guard squad guarding a Grav
Generator for 3 Victory points.

Euphraxes, Word Bearers exalted Lord of Chaos advances, supported by
a squad of Word Bearers marines and two chaos spawn.

The Possessed champion has been forced into
throwing out a challenge to Ork Nob, 'Ard Barry.
Alas, neither his power armour or invulnerable
save were up to the task of surviving a blow from
'Ard Barry's Power Claw.

The Fly Blown, Daemon Prince of Nurgle (until I think up a better name) and
the possessed mix it up with some Orks and a Pain Boy. Check out his witch-
doctor mask and 'urty needle.

Euphraxes challenges the leader of the Cyboar unit to single combat. Unfortunately this "puny beaky"
swiftly ended matters in a rather decisive manner, earning multiple Boons from the Chaos Boons table.

Euphraxes, Lord of Chaos

I've spent a bit of time over the last few evenings working on the Chaos Lord model from the Dark Vengeance box.

I've decided to paint him up to go with the Word Bearers  marines (the Tony version) I've been working on, which are the Chosen from the Dark Vengeance box.

I've named this guy Euphraxes, and I've painted his rather large sword to represent a Daemon Weapon. As to the True Name of the foul denizen of the warp that is imprisoned within the blade, of that I cannot speak, lest the beast be unleashed.

Plague Bearer #1

So I bought some of the new plastic plague bearer models a few months back.  Recently I got around to putting some together, and getting them under-coated. For some reason, I then just did nothing with them. Until the other day, that is.

The other day represented a certain cosmic alignment, when the bright star of willpower shifts itself from the "can't be arsed" quadrant and into the "painting experimentation" quadrant.

Or in other words, I finally got around to testing out a tutorial on painting corrupted flesh.  The tutorial can be found on a very excellent blog called Dark Future Games, and can be found here:

This dude has been working up some pretty awesome Nurgle stuff, and is a constant source of inspiration to me.  Not that I often do anything with my inspiration of course. But that's besides the point...

Long story short, I had a go at following the tutorial (which, incidentally, I did wrong) primarily because it gave me an excuse to try my hand at using glazes for the very first time.  I also had a go at using Tamiya Clear Red to produce that realistic gore effect that folks go on about on the internet.

Here is how it turned out. Apologies for the low quality photographs. Ahem.
